Thanks for the butcherbird link there, @bgosford http://bit.ly/bQbTCs They do always sound so lovely. Makes up for being in a swamp. ;)

Please insert the word “get” in the last tweet but one. Wherever you think it’ll make most sense.

Mon plan: Kickstart Day 2 http://bit.ly/7jTLCT ; record & edit “Patch Monday” podcast; do “The 9pm Edict” in some manner.

via TweetDeck

I’m not sure how I’m going to everything to fit today. I think the answer is that it won’t.

via TweetDeck

Hmmm… @SnarkyPlatypus We need to provide Google with a suitable French translation of “stabbiness”. Must consider.

via TweetDeck

Hmmm… @anthonybaxter I appreciate the sentiment here http://bit.ly/asJ2so but the photo editing work is a bit shoddy, IMO.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. C’est un beau matin dans un lieu de caractère artificiel complet. La douce pluie est apaisante. Et vous?

Listening to a species of butcherbird I haven’t heard before. Beautiful. The people in the pool for a morning swim, less so.

@Wyane It can’t be a “shaving kit” if it also contains a toothbrush, no? I must admit, this is all getting very confusing.

via TweetDeck

@cjlambert A little talc in one’s fresh socks after having a shower at the end of the day… was standard in our house when I grew up.

via TweetDeck in reply to cjlambert

RT @kedgie: Why do you even have talcum powder? [Erm, because I wash? *puzzled*]

via TweetDeck

One day after flying… just one day… I’d like my talcum powder NOT to burst open in my toiletries bag.

via TweetDeck

Checking in and freshening up before dinner. And wondering what to cover for the “Patch Monday” podcast.

OMFG! There’s water almost to the edge of the road! It’s true! Tsunami PHEAR!

We seem to be driving an awfully long way.

We descended thru hundreds of sunlit little fluffy clouds, like being trapped in Luke Steele’s wardrobe.

@jeamland Actually I’ve turned of the naughty plugin now. You have Edicts.

@jeamland Alas I can’t fix The 9pm Edict’s feed from here. It must stay broken for now.

I need to choose a new avatar for use during Kickstart Forum too, I think. Something sub-tropical.

via TweetDeck

@alexkidman But… But… You’re reducing the number of things I can whinge about! This will not do!

via TweetDeck in reply to alexkidman

Indeed @neerav the whole dressing-up thing is just another barrier to entry for busy people, especially if not gregarious extroverts.

@franksting So this iPhone app comes with some sort of cattle prod electrical device? [puzzled]

@pilgrimhawk @SnarkyPlatypus. If it’s any consolation, I’d never heard of Tom Ford either. He designs clothes? Care factor 0. Yawn. B Ark.

Boarding of JQ406 SYD-OOL won’t start for another 10 mins. Meanwhile, the hordes gather and gossip…

via TweetDeck

True @sylmobile there is a @Westpac ATM in T3 but I couldn’t be arsed going through security checks again.

via TweetDeck

Alas @rod_benson everyone but ANZ has indeed had their ATMs evicted from inside the SYD secure zone. Oh well. Cash shall have to wait.

via TweetDeck

Oh it’s not the ATM fees @expectproblems @NathanaelB but functionality. And yes, St George, Westpac and Bank SA are the same thing.

via TweetDeck

Astounded at the number of people whinging about the rather unchallenging task of “getting up in the morning”.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Que sont-entendez-vous? Ils ne radiographiés mon sac à deux reprises aujourd’hui.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Oh botheration! How come no @Westpac ATMs inside SYD airport? Does ANZ have some exclusive deal? If so, that rather foul.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Ca a commencé. J’ai passé les contrôles de sécurité. Et vous?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Mobile: Cab to SYD airport; you know the rest, at least I’ve you’ve been paying attention, which you may not have been.

Maybe I should pack the video camera @NewtonMark ‘cos a Boeing 737 will ride that wave like Layne Beachley.

Who needs roller coasters any more when we can generate recreational fear through tsunami warnings without even leaving home?

via TweetDeck

Dear Artemis, I know it’s a Full Moon tonight and you’re a cat, but please don’t point that end of your body at me and emit that odour.

via TweetDeck

Erm @wolfcat the tsunami warning does NOT cover “all of NSW” ‘cos it’s a maritime warning. Just the little bit next to the coast, Sir.

via TweetDeck

All that said, the key question for me is what my coverage from Kickstart can do that isn’t just like everyone else’s.

via TweetDeck

Is this the time to mention how much I really truly HATE dress-ups and themed events? Like, even more than tofu.

Oh. My. God. I had no idea you all cared about wine labelling so much. Yes, @dobes, “Rainbow-Farting Unicorn Cab Shiraz” is yours! [*bless*]

For simplicity I’m working on a standard hourly rate, unless it’s fetish or Young Liberals, @phildobbie

Anyone who brands their wines “Lush”, “Dusk” and “Velvet” is clearly aiming for the connoisseur market.

Oh @Cacotopos any order or any combination of those duties is fine, and there are other options too. Shall I send a rate card?
