The Under the Blue Moon Festival gurgles along on Enmore Rd, with sausage sizzle open day at the undertakers.

Mobile (again): Enmore Rd; King St; @SnarkyPlatypus; gym; late lunch. My attention may be limited.

@drearyclocks Exactly. And well all feel like a man’s man occasionally. No. Wait.

@drearyclocks If Jess had just said up front that he drove a Hummer ‘cos he liked it, it’d be fine. But he wanted to JUSTIFY it. Fail.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to drearyclocks

@drearyclocks Ah yes, the whole HUMMER to WANKER puzzle generated some great comments. http://bit.ly/3e9Chw

@drearyclocks Me being a Google result for “McDonalds Waterloo Australia” is spurious and will soon pass. Good trick, nonetheless.

@iain_chalmers Alas no coffee in the CBD for me. I am already on the train back home. On target for gym at 1400.

This tweet is brought to you live from the Apple Store Genuis Bar, while I await the arrival of the new power supply. Oh here it is now!

via Twitter Web Client

I patiently await my moment with a Genius. It takes a Genius to see the power supply’s broken cable and get a new one from the shelf.

@maverickwoman A black polo-neck would just make me look like a Wiggle in mourning. Or a Norwegian Wiggle.

I suppose you could combine all that into a carnivorous tree snuff movie.

I do not like the slogan “Hot and Ready” for selling meat pies. The tomato sauce looks too much like blood.

So how come trees are allowed to spray pollen everywhere, but that time I just … ?

@Nickhodge There are only five things I feel compelled to do. None of them involve a Windows 7 t-shirt. Only one involves you.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@SnarkyPlatypus Si Steve ne fait pas me sentir mieux, je vais me plaindre. Fort.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I appreciate all your suggestions, and @ApostrophePong’s to wear a Windows7 t-shirt, but I shall ignore them all.

via Twitter Web Client

Hmmm… I have to go to the Apple Store, but I have nothing to wear!

RT @CADbloke: Passing of time is bi-cubically proportional to proximity of your closest, possibly-unrelated deadline. [Wanky, but true.]

@jilliancyork Oh. You were asking about the other study, the date-rape drug one. That’s enough research for me on a Sunday tho. ;)

Prof David Nutt: “Estimating drug harms: a risky business?” http://bit.ly/1o4Dc9 [Less snarkily-tweeted link.]

via Twitter Web Client

@jilliancyork I reckon Prof Nutt’s paper would be very easy to find, since it was an academic publication. Oh, look! ;) http://bit.ly/1o4Dc9

@SnarkyPlatypus ROFL! “The Modern Monotreme: Magic or Minger?”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I’ve founf a guy who named his boat “Savage Minger” but I don’t think that counts.

via Twitter Web Client

Aha! The Vine: “The minger ginger from Girls Aloud actually looks pretty neat for a change.” http://bit.ly/maC4T

via Twitter Web Client

I wonder if reviewing an LG TV as “Not a minger” counts? http://bit.ly/2vfGA1

via Twitter Web Client

Here’s one! Brisbane Times: “… but here are some of my personal favourite sporting mingers… ” http://bit.ly/1aCgAK Need two more.

via Twitter Web Client

@glengyron Interestingly, I searched news.com.au and smh.com.au and “minger” only appears in comments, which isn’t good enough.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to glengyron

@glengyron “English slang is English”, yes, but Australian slang is Australian and comes from many sources, including English.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to glengyron

@einspruch It’s not so much finding the definition, tho http://j.mp/1FXnVE are good. It’s citing it in Australian usage. That’ll be easy.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to einspruch

@glengyron The Macquarie is certainly open to corrections, with appropriate evidence. I know this from having been involved in one myself.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to glengyron

@SnarkyPlatypus From 2007, “BBC flashes Kylie Minogue’s minge at innocent kiddies” http://bit.ly/3XMeNy

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus BTW, “minge” is “Romani but also Suffolk dialect”. So there you go.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Yeah I’m finding enough references in random searches that I reckon I’ll be able to do it properly for the Macquarie.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus The Macquarie Dictionary doesn’t have “minger”. This needs to be rectified.

@SnarkyPlatypus “Is your client a Capricorn, by any chance?”

@kcarruthers Look, try explaining your fancy “other hemisphere” thinking to the mingers in cheap witches’ hats and see how far you get!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@SnarkyPlatypus I think you were thinking of Samhain. http://bit.ly/MxTH5 Or maybe it’s just the sangria talking.

@SnarkyPlatypus I trust that you have upheld the Glebe Dining Code of Honour.

Maybe being a Venturer Scout was bad for me, All that “Be Prepared” stuff and first aid and taking responsibility instead of being a sheep.

@auntie_abc I live in fear of having a heart attack or stroke while surrounded by morons who don’t have the sense to call an ambulance.

@WoollyMittens The sniffy sniffy dogs rarely find anything interesting. http://bit.ly/1dGoPx

I may be overstating the risk to little girl. But she’d strayed beyond the fence, wasn’t visible to parents, following pigeon onto road.

BTW, if anyone wants to take advantage of this surge of testosterone, you know where to find me. Just sayin’…

via Twitter Web Client

@eddit0r Oddly enough, when I told Kylie on Police 000 the guy was on the ground with a hand around his throat, “Nice day for it,” she said.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to eddit0r

@FortuneGrey Mate, if I don’t pimp myself then no-one else will. It’s purely pragmatism.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to matt_levinson

Oh, I also saved a 4yo girl from being run over by a car today. She’d strayed from a parkland birthday party. So I’m a double hero. :P

via Twitter Web Client

@retrogrrl @middleclassgirl The police sniffy sniffy dogs have an easy gig. Who am I to begrudge them their tail-wagging?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to retrogrrl

The police thing: I observed street violence from the gym window. Gawkers watched but didn’t act. I called the police. I am such a hero.

@regolith I don’t even know what an “Oxford St stab” means, and perhaps I am grateful for that.

Police sniffy sniffy dogs working King St, Newtown, always look so perky and cheerful.

OH: “i’m just waiting for someone to form an S Club 7 cover band.” Alright, it was @SnarkyPlatypus.

via Cloudhopper

OH: “You feel really naughty, it’s a full orgasmic feeling. But it’s totally safe.”

via Cloudhopper

OK, the police had to be called. And before you ask, I was the caller not the callee.

via Cloudhopper

The man on the exercise bike next to me is actually reading the SMH real estate supplement. I want to stab him.

Newtown Square is full of gothlings in their finery. Wish I had shares in black eyeliner.
