@SnarkyPlatypus “Are there any command words that are NOT fucked up?” How about “Julie Andrews”? [Anyone spot the reference?]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

My sekrit command words are so fucked up.

@mpesce But, have you seen that fine illustrated treatise, “MasterChef! The true truth!”? http://tr.im/sKzJ Matt Preston cannot be satanic!

@SnarkyPlatypus Crystal tusks! Crystal tusks! CRYSTAL TUSKS!!!1!1!!!! You know what that means?

@ApostrophePong I think a man in a cravat automatically triggers a craving for quality wine.

@umi0edgar Oh dear. I am seriously conflicted now.

@jg_rat If any barman is planning to ply me with liquor, I would very much rather it be that other barman who is not roster on. Just sayin’.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jg_rat

@ApostrophePong But, you have not seen the special @firstdogonmoon Matt Preston tribute video! http://tr.im/sKwt

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong You will hate Crikey even more for this MasterChef finals wrap. http://tr.im/sKtT

Negative: Barman knows nothing about wine. Positive: Barman doesn’t know you don’t usually fill the glass that full.

@SnarkyPlatypus By “special occasion”, you mean “tomorrow”, right?

@SilkCharm You may (or may not) have an answer to this question about the phases of adoption of social media. http://tr.im/sKq6

RT @bengrubb: The rail bus just picked up some people from Australia Zoo. These people have a very strong animal scent.

Police crackdowns may make drugs more affordable. http://tr.im/sKjG Welcome to psychoeconomics, folks!

Oh dear, MattR has been most unkind about the Ruddblog. http://tr.im/sKit

@GreenJ Goodness. That’s the very first time I’ve ever been wrong about anything ever! We should declare a holiday. Maybe Unicorn Sex Day.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

Finally getting out of the house, since I need to do a brief errand and, well, get out of the house. I shall read over a small drink, maybe.

via Twitter Web Client

@GreenJ Yes, “pub”. Something leads me to believe that the Crikey team has schnitzel in a pub on Friday afternoons. Am I mistaken?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

I suspect this comment speaks volumes for The True Nature of Crikey. http://tr.im/sK0V

via Twitter Web Client

What a fabulous new blog. I think. “Adelaide Disco Scene”! http://tr.im/sJJI

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Christopher Pyne can be fitted onto anything. *still wearing unicorn horn*

via Twitter Web Client

@sparksman I haven’t posted the unicorn piece anywhere else yet. Crikey has first dibs. We’ll see how @GreenJ feels when back from the pub.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sparksman

@thewetmale I just couldn’t work out how to fit Christopher Pyne into my unicorn sex commentary. Unless… What think you, @SnarkyPlatypus?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to thewetmale

@SnarkyPlatypus When you say “full of masterstroke”, I think of lawn mowers for some reason. Is that weird?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

New blog post: “Unreliable Tanzania 2: Nets” http://tr.im/sJnq

via Twitter Web Client

Oh well. I may not have gotten unicorn sex into Crikey today, but I did use “Prime Minister” and “sphincter” in the same sentence.

via Twitter Web Client

@IanWoolf I don’t see why people see Silverlight as such an imposition. Software is software. Big deal.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to IanWoolf

@SeandBlogonaut I’ve been spreading lots of Crikey-love today. Maybe that’s why unicorns was just tool much for @GreenJ. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SeandBlogonaut

@iain_chalmers Actually, @TheBloggess’ piece about unicorn sex http://bit.ly/PNQL7 was related, sorta kinda. But only sorta kinda.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to iain_chalmers

However Crikey does not seem to contain my piece about inappropriate unicorn sex. Bitterly disappointed.

@Matt_Tulk Heh! I probably DON’T have Swine Flu ‘cos it’s not a severe fever and I lack other key symptoms. But yes, I may have to cancel.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Matt_Tulk

Hmmm… I am still feverish, but still in the mood for writing too. Why is this so? An “Unreliable Tanzania” post will emerge after lunch.

@WarWraith It may not have been Fn-Command-F5, but I did find the “Save As…” dialog that was hidden under stuff. Ta.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to WarWraith

Before I can answer questions, I need reminding how to turn off the “Text to Audio File” thing that appeared on my OS X menu bar.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce You heard me. Inappropriate unicorn sex. And Peter Carey. Also, this fever is not going away. This may all be connected.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Filed a second Crikey piece about inappropriate unicorn sex. Sort of. Dunno if they’ll run it.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce You’ll probably be please to know that your blog post http://tr.im/sS5M was top Google result for “Gilmore’s Law” just then.

via Twitter Web Client

@wraptinweb You’ve changed your mind from what, exactly?

@Nickhodge If the aliens EMP NYPD’s computers, filling out seized custody vouchers is the least of our problems.

NYPD still spends $1M a year on… typewriters. Fuck I love the future! http://tr.im/sKVd

@commuter_dirge Oh. Haven’t we all moved beyond chilled drinks? Or hired minions to deal with such details?
