Gosh, lots of theories about the ABC van and the brother. It does say “ABC Brisbane” on the side. Maybe the parking was full out back.

Why is there a satellite (microwave?) uplink truck for ABC Brisbane outside the brothel on Enmore Rd, Enmore, Sydney?

@ApostrophePong I think I’ve fixed my Howardesque eyebrow.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: A dose of Howard may relieve the influence of Costello, but may have other undesirable side-effects. [Too right.]

via Twitter Web Client

Mobile: Enmore Rd; probably King St; lunch; back to my desk for more webby work and writing, or maybe not to my desk.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus I don’t think I’m getting the cough, or I’d have caught it by now. I do feel ill-ish, but that’s probably Costello’s fault.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Should you worry about my incipient cough? Um, on a scale of what to what are we talking here?

@sesh Here’s the Peter Costello for Victorian Premier story again, with a different URL shortener. http://tr.im/xdNg

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sesh

Oh you seriously are joking, right? Peter Costello for Premier of Victoria? WTF? http://is.gd/2AICT Hat-tip @timdunlop.

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong I don’t think I have necessarily caught your cough yet, but after last night’s poor sleep I do feel… incipient-cough.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

There will not be an edition of “Stilgherrian Live” tonight, alas. I’m trying to avoid getting @ApostrophePong’s nasty cough.

via Twitter Web Client

@piawaugh Or, people can just close their Twitter client and get on with some work. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to piawaugh

@piawaugh If you’re using Tweetdeck, each column can have a filter applied to it. One of the buttons at the bottom.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to piawaugh

Childishly pleased that some people seem to be making progress on my Script Challenge. http://is.gd/2AAVl

via Twitter Web Client

Quick new blog post: “Irrational hatred of the Internet” http://is.gd/2AAyj I mention Clive Hamilton. Again. Sorry.

via Twitter Web Client

@piawaugh I’ll be watching your use of Livestream with interest. The distributed controls will be the win for you, I think.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to piawaugh

RT @WarWraith: I’m annoyed that the government isn’t interested in a road filtering package to stop drug trafficking.

via Twitter Web Client

@KateLundy @piawaugh Sadly I doubt I’ll be in Wollongong for tomorrow’s but I’ll try to watch online. http://is.gd/2AzsY

via Twitter Web Client

QOTD from a friend: “Hating the Internet because of child pornography is a bit like hating the roads because of drug trafficking.”

via Twitter Web Client

@artsjourno It appears that, yes, 2-11yos use Twitter. It’s a statistic. With a graph. And you can’t argue with that! http://is.gd/2Axxa

via Twitter Web Client

Thu plan (belated): Writing (not for Crikey) and webby work for clients, gently, with a lunch break somewhere; gym with @SnarkyPlatypus?

via Twitter Web Client

@babyexpat Yes, @firstdogonmoon is a cruel man and should be banned from the Internets.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sagabrown

@BaneAu I don’t need to Google “heath ledger jokes”: still get 200+ visits to that page monthly. They “neocon sex kitten” too.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BaneAu

@SnarkyPlatypus Mai je récupère avec l’aide d’alcaloïdes, de la poudre blanche, et l’attention amicale des félins.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

“Kids don’t use Twitter.” Yes they do. No they don’t. Yes they do. No they don’t. YES THEY DO! http://is.gd/2Axxa

@SnarkyPlatypus Hélas, j’ai quelques travaux qui doit être fait aujourd’hui, mais il est assez facile.

@SoniaLastrega Only sometimes. At other times, I am asleep.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Il est remarquable, peu d’effluents. Nous remercions tous les dieux, c’est vendredi! Et vous?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Sometimes I really want to slap Peter Costello.

via Twitter Web Client

@benmoretti Indeed I have watched The KLF “Burn A Million Quid”. And so can you. Full doco at http://tr.im/xi7d

via Twitter Web Client

Balance and symmetry are important. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

@smperris If you mean The KLF’s book “The Manual”, I actually have a real copy on sliced tree. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to smperris

@john_chr Some of my hoaxes have been particularly believable, so I don’t mind revealing the fact that I’m doing one.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to john_chr

@facibus Yes. We must consume alcohol together. Then, a quick game of Sink.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

@michaelmeloni I would never terrorise you, Michael. There are other verbs.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to michaelmeloni

Does anyone want to watch a video of a cat riding a Roomba? I thought so. http://tr.im/xfno

via Twitter Web Client

@BaneAu Articles written by me? Like, ‘pon what subjects?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BaneAu

Hmmm… I haven’t done a good hoax for a really long time…

via Twitter Web Client

Bonus article I wrote about The KLF in 1991. http://tr.im/xflb

@mrgrumpystephen Bill Drummond is indeed a fascinating chap. I have a copy of his book “45” conveniently to hand.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mrgrumpystephen

@oliyoung They were. And as a result we should listen to “Whitney Joins The Jams”. http://tr.im/xfjQ

via Twitter Web Client in reply to oliyoung

Reading Wikipedia’s rather comprehensive entry on The KLF http://tr.im/xfjd because… well, I blame @SnarkyPlatypus. 2 Unlimited indeed!

via Twitter Web Client

Ah, what a GLORIOUS website! FrontPage FTW! http://tr.im/xfgF Commentary at http://tr.im/xfgN which might ease you into it.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @BiteTheDust: My Other Blog talks about the use of Viagra in Dentistry http://bit.ly/mHlfz [I think I don’t want to visualise that.]

via Twitter Web Client

@cowspanker If the NetView figures (and therefore methodology) are new, they can’t reveal any “change” at all, just a new viewpoint. :P

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cowspanker

Dear Twitterverse, anyone know of software for generating buzzword bingo cards, into which I can load my own word list?

via Twitter Web Client

@zzkt No, the fart wasn’t “lugubrious”. There was a quite a definite air of satisfaction about it. If “air” is the right word.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to zzkt

It would appear that “languorous” would be an even MOAR APPROPRIATER word. How redolent of gin and mint. Doesn’t smell the same, though.

via Twitter Web Client

@paulwiggins While risotto is a wonderful thing, I do like @ApostrophePong’s masaman curry. And it[’s almost ready to eat.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paulwiggins

Is “languid” a good word to describe a fart? If so, the fart I just had (did?) was rather languid. Note: I have not yet eaten the curry.

via Twitter Web Client

@paulwiggins Maybe I should market myself to conference organisers as “groupthink avoidance strategist”. Sounds better than shit-stirrer.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paulwiggins

Experimenting with the microwave oven and food poisoning. Again.

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong Would @MPese’s rooftop wonderland be suitable for shooting a pool party scene? Or do you want something more suburban?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

The consensus seems to be that the masaman curry and beer is WIN… for now, at least.

via Twitter Web Client

@paulwiggins This is a problem with top-shelf conferences. Only executives can afford them, yet leading-edge folk are often… less rich.

@sparksman I think Barely Legal Charts would contain the best. Chart pr0n so awesomely fresh and luscious that it’s irresistible. @Warlach?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sparksman

The fridge appears to be full of beer and masaman curry. This is either full of WIN or a dangerous situation. But which?

via Twitter Web Client

@BiteTheDust Your visual imagination is our own problem. Also, why CAN’T we have fat sequestration technology?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BiteTheDust

“Meth ring used comic books to launder cash” http://tr.im/xeCk Also, an unattractive chap.

RT @captain_beef: Getting a Costa Rican child to go the gym for you? [Yes, this one best captures the intent of my intent.]

via Twitter Web Client

I have cancelled the gym. I think I’ll reduce my weight the same way we’re reducing carbon emissions.

via Twitter Web Client

Good God! There’s actually FOUR of them!

via Twitter Web Client

Oh, she was also in “Dynasty: The Making of a Guilty Pleasure”. But then so was @ApostrophePong.

via Twitter Web Client

So. Let me get this right. Someone is actually paid money to tell the world that an actor went to the shop. Quick! Install a paywall!

via Twitter Web Client

@mtats I haven’t seen “Transformers”, but the Internets inform me she was in that, and also “the short-lived Australian program’ headLand’”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mtats

Who’s Rachael Taylor, and why should I care that she’s buying groceries. Don’t we all do that? [confused]

via Twitter Web Client

@unsungsongs The term “architectually inspired” means there wasn’t actually an architect, but the builders flipped through some magazines.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to unsungsongs

@Warlach Maybe we should do that site, Barely Legal Statistics, as chart pr0n. Like, now, ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Warlach

@TaniaPV Oh, look what I just did! I make Peter Costello a NSW Labor hack! BONUS POLITICS FAIL!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to TaniaPV

@TaniaPV Costello would be a useless NSW Treasurer. Couldn’t stop Howard squandering surplus on vote-buying, so no chance against Sussex St.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to TaniaPV

Lunch has been had. It was noodles. I shall now go to the bank, then return to my desk to finish some website changes for a client. Joy.

@geoffmcqueen Australia CHOSE to lead in sport. AIS gets millions to support indulgent jingoistic flag-waving.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to geoffmcqueen

Govt wants to know in advance what it’ll look like in 3-5 years. If ANY risk, it won’t happen! Must accept more risk.

via Twitter Web Client

Govt processes for funding innovation are so complicated that small players can’t afford those overheads.

via Twitter Web Client

My last tweet is missing a noun-phrase. That noun-phrase is not “penguin breeder”. No, it is not.
