@einspruch @anthonybaxter @vealmince Talking about kittens, unicorns or Patrick Swayze would have been ratings winners, true.

New blog post: “Google and Bing, sitting in a tree…” http://tr.im/z1Ck But I see the story is already growing…

The recording of my bit for “A Series of Tubes” podcast is done. I bet you can guess what @R_Chirgwin and I spoke about. ;)

Given that it’s now after 1345, it seems increasingly likely that my 1330 phone interview is going to happen.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @ozdj OMG! LOL! Search “Search” in Google Search!

via Twitter Web Client

Ah! The currawong is more confident! He/she came to eat just 1.5m in front of me, @ApostrophePong and Apollo. Wary, but confident.

@deanlk “Stilgherrian Live” isn’t vanishing completely. It’s just transforming a little.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to deanlk

OK, so that phone call completely re-arranged my worldview. Shame I can’t talk about it.

@R_Chirgwin I’m currently tracking all tweets mentioning Telstra live. It’s doing my head in. Pack of whingers, the lot of ‘em.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to R_Chirgwin

Just saw the latest edit of @ApostrophePong’s short film. It’s coming together rather nicely.

@daiskmeliadorn @lewellyn @paulkidd @babycakesjase Clearly you all need to ramp up your colourful language! ;)

On that note, Cursebird puts me in the very top percentile of people who swear on Twitter. http://tr.im/z0NW

@zhasper “Pleasant” is about superficiality. Being an arrogant cunts cuts to the very core of their being.

@digitalkulcha That is a seriously cheesy angel. http://bit.ly/vzzwB You should be ashamed.

@SnarkyPlatypus Je pense que leur décès a été causé par le narval vengeur, ou éventuellement d’un glaive.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je rêve d’une ville baignait dans le sang des hypocrites abattus. Pas dans mon sommeil, mais dès maintenant. Et tu?

People seem to have given up on my Script Challenge again. http://tr.im/z2Wy And yet some of the analysis was starting to get quite close.

@wolfcat @viveka The eggs thing is a literary reference, kind of. Six is the right number for tonight.

@buckleup It’s probably best not to join all the dots between my tweets. That way madness lies.

Other verbs, perhaps, but not “trusted”. Germaine Greer knows what I mean.

Male youths are not to be trusted.

@bengrubb @newsbee Erm, never question the word of a lady, that was.

via Twitter Web Client

@bengrubb I’m afraid I must agred with @newsbee. I would question the word of a lady. Plus the Fielding defence is lame.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

OH at Central station: “Oh what a rebel! Walking on the wrong side of the yellow line!”

via Cloudhopper

What IS that boy doing with that carrot? And how young is he, exactly?

via Cloudhopper

@newsbee I would imagine that @bengrubb is letting his internal fantasy world cloud his reality. And spelling. But mostly the former.

I believe I shall now depart the Sydney CBD and return to my village, there to prepare some sort of beef salad for dinner.

@JoshThomas87 Want grist for your “Optus sucks” mill? Just search for and you’ll hit the motherlode.

@safzoro Oops. I am a fool. It’s not like I couldn’t have grasped your gender is of the female persuasion, given your clear profile. Sorry.

RT @safzoro: Don’t think schooling was really a priority. [Oh! Well played, Sir!]

@mpesce Sure Parramatta Eels fans would be “schooling” rather than “swarming”?

@fictillius I think @mayorofnewtown would LOVE a Newtown-specific weather station! Also, I am not talking about the need for tissues.

@fictillius Your Sydney live weather station thingo has graphy geeky goodness overkill. http://tr.im/z24X

That was in reference to my 2007 post on International Talk Like a Pirate Day, which commenter Elle doesn’t appear to like. http://tr.im

Responding to an irritating blog comment with an even more irritating comment. That’s called “escalation”.

I can see the antlers. @SnarkyPlatypus was right: they are beguiling.

@smperris It’s mildly reassuring that in one of the world’s richest nations, in the 21st century, we have flushing toilets.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to smperris

Wow, temporary toilets at Town Hall station. All the joys of The Big Day Out but for the music and sunshind and drugs. Oh. Wait.

via Cloudhopper
