Spaghetti marinara. McLaren Vale shiraz. Abba’s “Dancing Queen”. Such is my life today.

Mobile: Enmore Rd; lunch; possible errands to King St. Does this look like a regular pattern to you?

via Twitter Web Client

Waiting for the washing to finish so I can go and have lunch and stuff. I am always politely patient.

@andrewdotnich @ceigbner Oddly enough, I did once produce a zine called “Hordes of One-Legged Seagulls”…

@Nickhodge Yes, I’m an evil Capitist. Does it show? If it does, maybe I DO need one of those knitted things.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@RanmaSaotomeS Knitwear does have its place. Why, I’m wearing a jumper [US: sweater] right now! Around a penis is not one of those places.

Dear Clients, I have a new concept for doing business which you may like. HOW ABOUT YOU PAY YOUR FUCKING BILLS! Ahem.

“The Most Unsexy Male Lingerie Ever”, according to @TheBloggess. Indeed. http://bit.ly/sAQMT

@franksting @kcarruthers @barrysaunders A “social netwok for whisky”? Yes, it’s called a “pub”.

RT @gnoll110: Minsky was a post Keynesian economist, had theories about was causes economic instability http://bit.ly/nsGc7 [Ah, thank you.]

via Twitter Web Client

Ah, I do love Hunter S Thompson’s conflict-resolution techniques! http://bit.ly/l68Ir Hat-tip @mpesce, kinda, I think.

Dear Mafia Wars players, while I don’t begrudge you your pastime, personally I’m not interested and think less of you for not asking first.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @stephenconroy: For those outraged by @isnack20’s Twitter account, I think I speak for everyone when I say you are dumb motherfuckers.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @jayrosen_nyu: Robotic response from Washington Post editors to a reader’s question about their social media rules http://jr.ly/uns4

via Twitter Web Client

@unsungsongs Rudd signs his tweets ‘cos the ones by his team are also tagged as such. Transparency. But @WilliamShatner signs his.

I’m interested in language, so finding The Eggcorn Database will waste at least an hour. http://bit.ly/PJeO6

@BernardKeane “As of 2008, Kym Wilson was a board member of Australian In Film, based in Los Angeles,” says Wikipedia. http://bit.ly/24NG6W

@seancarmody Your mathematical mind like to consider whether you can pick someone’s job by the language they use. http://bit.ly/JGNoN

Bostom Globe’s @big_picture now doing monthly focus on Afghanistan “as long as necessary”. http://bit.ly/19ofQA

The actual historical sequence of events makes my last tweet both wrong and unfunny. My apologies.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: There’s nothing like a Minogue sister to spoil that evanescent, sentimental moment. [True. Ask Michael Hutchence.]

via Twitter Web Client

Oh I do like the word “merdique”. I shall have to use that in another sentence later today.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Non, il n’est pas sentimental. Il est troublant. Comme une histoire de fantôme. Par ailleurs, cette chanson est merdique.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@seancarmody Hello. Is your part of the world functioning appropriately?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seancarmody

@SnarkyPlatypus Une pendule tiques fort. C’est le son uniquement. Et vous?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Mon esprit est encore plein de vieilles photographies, le jaunissement des nappes en dentelle et le thé amer.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I rarely remember my dreams but just then I did, and it’s a lovely plot idea for a short story or short film. Written down! Joy.

Enough medical procedures before bed. [exit]

@sylmobile Intriguing to watch ep 2 just then and watch an appendectomy done NOT with keyhole surgery.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sylmobile

@commuter_dirge I do have a swivel chair. And an undeground lair, alas sans volcano.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to commuter_dirge

@commuter_dirge Maybe I AM a Bond villain. However the cats do not have one blue eye and one green.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to commuter_dirge

@leehopkins @sylmobile I’ve also just discovered the entire series of Jonathan Miller’s “The Body In Question”. http://bit.ly/pup4p

via Twitter Web Client

@commuter_dirge Remarkable coincidence! Alas, I’m already in bed surrounded by cats. It’s either creepy, or a sign I’m getting up early.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to commuter_dirge

Goodness! I’d no idea Jonathan Miller directed an “Alice in Wonderland” in 1966! http://bit.ly/2YYviW Wonder if I can find the whole thing.

YouTube has suggested I watch this, and who am I to disagree? http://bit.ly/S7mk8

@unsungsongs For some reason the words “duty free” and “absinthe” seem to go well together.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to unsungsongs

RT @isnack20: I am made of despair, and cheese.

via Twitter Web Client

I am home and arguing with the cats about the logistics of the fishing industry.

via Twitter Web Client

Ah, the difference between “can’t just” and “just can’t”. Discuss. Also, http://bit.ly/nlrgh Audio broken?

@derekbarry Your “ipjone” seems to be working perfectly.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to derekbarry

@theburgerman That piece on journalistic “balance” is spot on! http://bit.ly/10OGzP Thank you!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to theburgerman

@theburgerman Exactly. The “equal time” to “usual suspects” is why I can’t just watch Insiders. It’s as ritual as kabuki.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @OverlandJournal: My hatred for the present tense continues to grow. [He says, all in the prsent tense.]

via Twitter Web Client

“Merrick & Rosso and Kate Ritchie want to give you a happy ending” is NOT a successful radio promo, sorry. Srsly.

via Twitter Web Client

@theburgerman @julie_posetti @natecochrane Having been at ABC Radio, “balance” means stopwatches, and all the wrong that goes with that.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to theburgerman

@petawb Anyway, the voices in my head and @unsungsongs and @ApostrophePong say I have to be in Newcastle this weekend. Apparently.

via Twitter Web Client

@petawb 2-minute rant to 2000? http://bit.ly/19kYrs Bah! My own website delivers me that, and more, for nothing.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to petawb

@natecochrane @vealmince I’d use “claimed” rather than “said” if there was no other evidence to support the statement, or controversy.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to natecochrane

@WarWraith I am a master of disturbing imagery. [bows]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to WarWraith

@DrunkyPants I would never call Germaine Greer a “meathead”. She’d hit me.

via Twitter Web Client

@julie_posetti @natecochrane I should have been in your discussion, but I’m already on record as saying journalistic objectivity is a myth.

via Twitter Web Client

@WarWraith True. I would gladly nail my theses to Germaine Greer’s forehead. [Why does that sound like a euphemism?]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to WarWraith

Speaking of Germaine Greer, can anyone explain this diptych? http://bit.ly/Gfj4x

@Darkon_ @RantRotAndRuin I think the login for @crikey_news website (WordPress) is geb0rken connecting to the free trial login. Help!

via Twitter Web Client

@RantRotAndRuin I am a mere contributor to @crikey_news so I’m not sure how the free trial is meant to work. [sulk]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to RantRotAndRuin

@Darkon_ Hmmm… there continues to be Crikey free-trial paywall fail. :/ @crikey_news can you help this man? He seems nice.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to c_tolkien

@andrewdotnich Hah! Maybe I should just gatecrash with a manifesto 95 theses… and present them to Germaine Greer.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to andrewdotnich

Hey, if there’s a “Festival of Dangerous Ideas” in Sydney this weekend, how come I wasn’t invited? I have LOTS of dangerous ideas!

It is inconvenient that the Attorney-General’s Department website is not alive at this current moment.

RT @drjon: COVERED IN BEEEETROOPS! http://bit.ly/F9Aqq [This was a suitable time-waster, yes. Also, funny.]

via Twitter Web Client

@BernardKeane Yes, yes. A “beetroop” is usually called a “swarm”. You’re hilarious. Sigh.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BernardKeane

@bengrubb Erm, well you RTd the question instead of answering it. Silly chap.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

I cannot believed I typed “beetroop”. That contains a large amount of fail.

via Twitter Web Client

@sarahinthesen8 @bengrubb As explained earlier, @KevinRuddPM’s tweets signed KRudd are him, “ Team” not him. Transparency. Good.

via Twitter Web Client

But right now, a quick trip to the shops for fresh bread and caraway seeds to go with @ApostrophePong’s beetroop soup. For breakfast.

Tue plan: Potter hayfeverishly through a variety of project planning tasks, mostly from my desk at home; gym & dinner w@SnarkyPlatypusypus.
