@barrysaunders @kcarruthers Oh, better answer! “Why does a booze shop open at 8am?” “Because have you ever tried to score dope that early?”

via Twitter Web Client

@kcarruthers Why does a booze shop open at 8am? Because we live in a 24-hour society! Also, some people plan ahead.

@mpesce Insane lines (“queues”, we call them here) at tge airport? Well fool you for arriving at the busiest time of day!

@glengyron Yes, the Ruddblog is a bit press-releasey, isn’t it! It’s a start, though. It’s good that an attempt is being made.

@IanWoolf There are (different) Feynman videos at http://tr.im/sGWd without Silverlight, it is true. But so what about Silverlight?

@SnarkyPlatypus Quel est le plus ennuyeux? Les chats, de la fièvre ou un gel matin?

This music video, Sour’s “日々の音色 (Hibi no neiro)”, is a rather fine piece of directorial choreography. http://tr.im/sCN3

Fairfax seem to have gone with my quote on the Prime Minister’s new blog. http://tr.im/sCzq There ya go, @KevinRuddPM.

Bill Gates has put films of the Richard Feynman lectures online. http://tr.im/sCur Is the website overloaded? I’m not surprised.

On a scale of erotic to disturbing, this photo is…? http://tr.im/sBQA (Or are they separate scales?)

@seancarmody Yes, your blog post on government versus private debt is teh awesomes! http://bit.ly/5rRa9

@mpurse My mascara would never run. It wouldn’t dare. (With apologies to a mis-attribution to Curtis LeMay.)

I do with they’d stop advertising gin during “The Colbert Report”. I’m vulnerable.

90 mins of slothing in bed have not really helped.

@babycakesjase I’m fairly sure nothing bit me while in Africa, despite my slackness with the mosquito nets.

@jg_rat Thank you. Rumours of my death have been greatly exaggerated.

@wolfcat How much did I pay for the diagnosis? Not sure, but YOU paid about $30. Hello, Medicare!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

Doctor’s diagnosis: “WHERE have you been? Really? Gawd, it could be any bloody thing!” Yes, ta, that was my diagnosis too.

I do not have Tabloid Flu. Probably. Maybe.

via Cloudhopper

This fever is, if anything, worse. I shall now travel to more inner parts of the city to consult with leeches and other reprobates.

@jamesfehon Well, if the Ruddish rhythms are there in the piece, then it’s a genuine capture of his personal style! ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jamesfehon

@plasmaegg Well, Kevin Rudd’s “personal voice” IS fairly formal. Though it does look like a prepared speech top’n’tailed.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to plasmaegg

Mr Rudd’s first blog post has gone live. It’s very formal. http://tr.im/syTq

Dear Cockroaches, here’s the social compact which applies here. 1. I spray you with chemicals. 2. You die. Now, I’ve done my bit… OK?

@FiveThumbsDown Ministers do indeed get a LOT of email, so very little ever reaches them personally. Such is the way of things.

via Twitter Web Client

@FiveThumbsDown @ThePlasticAge All MPs’ emails are on Parliament House website. Senators at http://tr.im/syBm Conroy at http://tr.im/syBw

It should not be quite so fatigued at 1100. This does not bode well.

via Twitter Web Client

@bastardsheep True, I’d forgotten about the Lithgow Panther. http://tr.im/sxNq But is is “swineamianther” or “swineantherami”?

@GreenJ Are you suggesting some sort of all-in Snuggie group orgy event?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

@piawaugh Amusing that PM’s website illustrates “pollution” with photo of cooling towers, which only emit water vapour. Such a classic oops.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to piawaugh

RT @piawaugh: New website with blog up from @KevinRuddPM on http://www.pm.gov.au/ Blogging with open comments starts today. Nice.

via Twitter Web Client

Oh dear. I appear to be channeling Guy Rundle.

Fri plan: Morning of writing (and filing by deadline, @GreenJ!); desk afternoon tying up many loose ends via email and shell commands.

RT @sirexkathryn: When I teach blogging, I tell class that every time u call a post a blog, somewhere a Blogging Fairy dies.

via Twitter Web Client

Rapidly-forming consensus: 1. It’s “post” or “blog post”, not “blog”. 2. I should stop “injecting sense and reason into the twitterverse”.

via Twitter Web Client

By comparison, you don’t say “I wrote a newspaper” or “I wrote a magazine”. You write an article or a feature. Or a [cough] “yarn”.

via Twitter Web Client

Dear Twitterverse, is calling an individual blog post “a blog” (as in “I wrote a blog today”) wrong? I think it is. I think it’s a “post”.
