@bengrubb While John Hewson DIED in the “birthday cake interview” http://bit.ly/5g2Zs it wasn’t his version that was introduced.

Seriously, whoever made a simple GST so complicated has cost business BILLIONS of dollars trying to track this idiocy!

Which tool is responsible for all these weird-arsed exceptions to Australia’s GST? I want names and I want them now!

This “paperwork” is shitting me.

@SnarkyPlatypus Censorship is a bit more “Twisted Wire” and just been done. http://bit.ly/fHXhN Yeah some sort of 2010 preview…

There is nothing worth tweeting about in the entire suburb.

Mobile: Brief local errands along the usual routes, tweeting pointless little things along the way.

@KahrinaChan Public “services” still think they live in the 19th Century and close down even when it’s not a public holiday.

I think I’ve just found my new totem, mentor and role model all in one. http://bit.ly/5JS52p

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Toute vie est un combat. Vivre, c’est souffrir. Et vous?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

For those who pointed to a “public service holiday”, thank you, but the ATO is actually closed until 4 Jan.

via Twitter Web Client

So, Australian Tax Office, how come you get to be closed when it’s not a public holiday? Hmmm? HMMM?

@leslie_nassar Yes, people who received Kindles for Christmas bought books for them. This is MOST surprising. [snap]

Wed plan (post-brunch): Complete a financial model for 2010 Q1 (yes, I know, what a life); evening undecided.

@Cacotopos I believe Howard effectively killed other orgs representing low-income folk by cutting off funding if they criticised govt. Yes?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Cacotopos

@schmediachick Thank you, but I shudder to think how I’ve managed to “inspire” you (or anyone) this year. I take no responsibility.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to schmediad

Mobile: Brief errand to Enmore Rd and back, with little of interest to the general public.

RT @SBSNews: New figures show the Emissions Trading Scheme would leave low-income earners $190 a year better off http://bit.ly/4p36fZ

@SnarkyPlatypus Je n’ai aucun sens de l’humour que ce soit, ni un sentiment de plaisir.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Well @lxzilber Sydney is incapable of simplifying fares first, instead tries to develop a unique system which can cope. Fools.

via Twitter Web Client

@oliyoung “812 buses, 94 trains, 11 Flexity Classic trams, 5 H-Class trams” http://bit.ly/5fThBH Bu fare systems, not size, matters.

Hmmm… That makes rather a good call to arms, for something. “Je ne vais pas cliquer!”

@SnarkyPlatypus Une fois encore, je suis heureux que Tweetdeck fournit un aperçu pour les URLs. Je ne vais pas cliquer. http://is.gd/5FX0G

RT @oliyoung: AdelaideMetro … the ticketing system is so old it’s almost antiquated. [Because it was first, I think. Sydney has NONE yet.]

RT @NathanaelB: I ain’t gonna be in the gov game forever. [Too true. One day you will be dead.]

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Les chats tentent de paraître innocent, mais ils le sont pas. Ce sont uniquement la cause principale. Et vous?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Day 2 of 3 which are quite stressful for me. If I am snappier than usual, do not take it personally. Unless you deserve it.

@danupoyner Thanks. I do try to make my @replies make sense in and of themselves, so they have value for others. Seems to work.

@happn_in_trendr If I set the trend for “airport security” today by saying it once yesterday, your algorithms are shit! http://bit.ly/4qldaP

@k_a_beck Oh do let @ApostrophePong know you liked his film “Memory of You”!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to intothemystic23

@franksting LOL! @ApostrophePong is doing more video now, not photography, and the style has changed.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@ApostrophePong Those katydid photos were great. You were doing some excellent photography then.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@Matt_Tulk I would respect your opinion more if it said “your” not “you’re” in two places. ;)

@danupoyner Yes, the Future Music people have been using the same gnome in their promos. http://twitpic.com/vpikt

@fictillius I don’t think it’s quite reached “emergency” status yet, no. :)

Running out of cheap-arsed booze in the fridge. This could prove problematic.

via Twitter Web Client

@andrewdotnich Kangaroo bolognese? Yes! For a long period in Adelaide our default meat was kangaroo, not beef. Cheaper (then) and healthier.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to andrewdotnich

You know, @ApostrophePong’s end-of-year post is rather powerful. And I like the photo, I think. http://bit.ly/4UezU9

@monkeytypist Howard was lucky, yes. People were sick of Keating’s arrogance, I think. That cycle thing. Maybe. I dunno.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to monkeytypist

@SnarkyPlatypus Meg Bloody Lees. She didn’t even get rooted by Gareth Evans, for all that. Sigh.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

But @monkeytypist the “food” exemption, for certain food, created accounting mess for every cafe and restaurant. Not a win IMO.

via Twitter Web Client

Yes @bengrubb the John Howard “never ever” GST statement. Ah, nostalgia! http://bit.ly/SGSNi

via Twitter Web Client

@bengrubb Hewson lost to Keating in the 1993 election, but then Howard introduced a GST in 2000 after winning in 1996.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

Yes @jasonlangenauer @wolfcat fucking Meg Lees and the Australian Democrats! I should bill them for my time on this shit.
