RT @Colvinius: Except that [Bob Ellis] seriously underestimates what they want/would be satisfied with, in my view. [Probably right, yes.]

via Twitter Web Client

Exactly @Colvinius @R_Chirgwin @jonowee! Living in fear of the terrorists’ power is failure. It induces us to play their game. Sigh.

@misswired I don’t mind watching their abject disillusionment as long as I can buy vegetables.

@tommyjudd @Nickhodge I’ii have more to say about that silly bomb squad incident this week. But shoosh, it’s SEKRIT!

The haloumi is taunting me.

Mobile: Stanmore Rd; Borsellino Bros; buy things to go with my chicken booty; cleansing ale; home again to roast chick, Moroccan style.

Kid at San Diego tech school makes some tech. Result? Bomb squad called, school evacuated. http://bit.ly/6GYyfs

@Nickhodge That would be a good live video feed. “All Spirograph, all the time.” Around and around and around and around and around…

Also, my plotting has been reasonably successful. My plot advances in clarity, complexity and general excellence. Soon, My Precious…

I have once more successfully rescued my phone from the Dangers of Wet and Moist Water. Silica gel, I love you.

Reading about “fixed schedule productivity”. Dodgy “get rich” website but good case studies. http://bit.ly/z5MQu

@overingtonc Oh by all means follow me… if you can cope with the volume. ;) Happy Sunday Work. Cheers!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to overingtonc

@overingtonc The immediacy too. “This is what I’m working on / doing NOW” and seeing responses which shape my thoughts.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to overingtonc

@overingtonc For me, watching the ripple of connection and replies is Twitter’s strength. And the sheer pace, of course.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to overingtonc

@overingtonc Exactly. Though given it was during the bushfires I’m not sure the back chatter would have helped you?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to overingtonc

OK, it’s 9am. Time to focus on my writing and editing lest @sophblack and then @renailemay become… irritated.

@Pollytics I’m a LITTLE excited by Pre-mixed Concrete Production statistics. They’re a proxy for the building industry.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Pollytics

@granleese The report was only on federal funding. But I’m not sure why private schools get ANY government funds. “Private”, y’see…

Australia’s exports up 22% in 2008-09 despite global downturn. http://bit.ly/7RzvQD Still, Aboott will find a way to whinge.

@NewsFlake Does Alison Carabine have kids? If so, which school do they go to? ;) Or is that too tabloid a question?

Natasha Stott-Despoja’s thoughts on Tony Abbott, Eco-Warrior. http://bit.ly/6W6n0K

via Twitter Web Client

I’m continually astounded how some people perceive the world and their place in it. We are our perception, sure, but even so…

via Twitter Web Client

RT @NewsFlake: In a truly even-handed manner someone on RN this am accused the authors of that report as ‘launching class warfare’…

via Twitter Web Client

One-third of students attend private schools, but privates get 57% of federal funding. http://bit.ly/777mP5

Lasers. Vital. But if current UK research chief was in charge, they’d have never happened. http://bit.ly/6bRe9k

@BernardKeane “Ann Summers is a British High street retailer selling lingerie and sex toys.” Ponder that, Glenn Milne! http://bit.ly/75zkCb

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BernardKeane

@notrez Indeed. I love the nuttier, earthier taste of spelt over wheat in pasta and couscous, so thought a gin variant is worth exploring.

RT me from yesterday: New blog post: “Time to dump 20th Century ‘leadership’?” http://bit.ly/72Icq0

via Twitter Web Client

Seeing FAR less spam on the Internets the last few days. Guessing counter-attacks related to Google have side effects on the botnets.

via Twitter Web Client

@notrez I know jenever generally is marketed to the proles, but supposedly the spelt-based one is a connoisseur item. http://bit.ly/6cQheG

via Twitter Web Client in reply to notrez

Mon plan: Write for Crikey; finish “Patch Monday” podcast; local errands; work on SEKRIT new project; evening unplanned.

via Twitter Web Client

Ta to everyone who provided hints for tracking down the Dutch spelt-based gin (jenever). I’ll search further this evening.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Très occupée! Je dois écrire pour Crikey et remplir un podcast, avec des nettoyants et des jardiniers de m’interrompre.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

See, Sen Conroy, like this! A threat to kids? Empower them. Don’t “filter” jumping castles. http://bit.ly/8aZhnZ

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour Je vous souhaite un agréable voyage à la ville du sud. Êtes-vous excité? Pompé?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Emerges. With prejudice.

via Twitter Web Client

Oh. Hectic day tomorrow. I had better go before I spout angry words about idiot web designers and Hitler. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

Actually @peterhau @benharrisroxas I’m trying to find the Dutch brand of spelt gin but their websites are completely unhelpful. Sigh.

via Twitter Web Client

Why do booze companies think that when I go to their website for facts I want to wait for a bunch fucking animations first? Tools.

via Twitter Web Client

More importantly, I have just discovered there’s a Dutch gin made from spelt… researching now.

RT @jasonlangenauer: If you want a stunning account of day-to-day life under the Nazi’s prior to 1939, http://bit.ly/5wyqxQ [Ta!]

via Twitter Web Client

@bengrubb Why would you want the same meal wherever you go? Isn’t variety and local flavour the more interesting experience?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

@jasonlangenauer You don’t need to go back to Rome to realise empire-change happens slowly. http://bit.ly/4WhO8I

via Twitter Web Client

@bengrubb You can tithe 10% to charity or 10% to a franchise. http://bit.ly/6Om7hJ But as long as there’s a brand it’s better, right?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

@bengrubb Precisely why I avoid franchises wherever I can. I’d rather the money to go to the people doing the work, not brand marketers.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

For those who liked the sound of the chicken it was just this http://bit.ly/7zIGn with minor variations like the spelt couscous.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: What do you think about a chicken stuffed with blue cheese? [Um, oh, er, can someone fetch me some tissues?]

via Twitter Web Client

@Maab Spelt is a grain. It lost out as other wheat species became a global commercial crop but it’s being revived. http://bit.ly/2Tc30u

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Maab

@bengrubb And what’s good about eating at Burger Fuel is that a solid percentage of your money goes to a wanker who just invented a name.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

Stuffing that chicken with spelt couscous, pistachio nuts, dates, coriander seed and cumin was a sensible idea. [nods]

via Twitter Web Client

@Colvinius And yet, whatever “teh terrorismists” may want, I don’t think we should be cowering to the tiny risk of underpants bombers.
