Location recording finished. That kinda means the day is, largely, finished. I shall read, with this pint as company, until my last thing.

Lurking in the foyer at the ABC. We’re going to record a radio interview, but somewhere else so it’s “on location”. Bloody media.

Is it just me, or is “incentivise” one of those words which, when spoken, should give you full freedom to stab the speaker?

Me in Crikey: “Startpage: a ‘private’ search engine, but who’ll care?” http://bit.ly/chyQRu [Paywall’d for now.]

6.824 billion as of 30 May, apparently. You are not so special.

@ellymc Actually I was tweeting while waiting. The haircut is a Special Moment.

Hah! ACMA does Crystal’s Gifted Psychics for dodgy “premium mobile” stuff. Media release http://bit.ly/abcVqM Report http://bit.ly/agkJWp

Why is this man taking a phone call while having his hair cut? The Good Lord gave us voicemail for a reason.

@DemonicVel Perhaps we should declare Newtown Haircut Day every 1 June. With a parade and copious cheese.

@glengyron Yeah it’s hard for humans to comprehend being just one in 6.5 billion or whatever it is now. Some village.

@wheelyweb Ah no, Zig Zag is where it should be. I await my turn at the clippers.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wheelyweb

@wheelyweb Oh? Zig Zag has moved? Am I about to go to the wrong address?

Mobile: Enmore Rd; King St; haircut and other errands; bus to University of Technology Sydney; remainder TBA.

Wonderful, my website is the 478,945th most popular in the world. Special, eh?

via TweetDeck

Crikey story filed! And now maybe a long hot shower will clear my sinuses and thence my brain.

@cmlh Plus no-one seems to have put forward a better theory these last two decades, so I’m happy with that as a best guess.

via TweetDeck in reply to cmlh

@cmlh You know, I figure the words “hasn’t been confirmed” and “likelihood” sufficiently convey the non-confirmed nature of the correlation.

via TweetDeck in reply to cmlh

OK, fuzzy mucus-filled head down so I can get this article written in the next 100 minutes or so. Gosh the media is a glamorous industry!

via TweetDeck

Nah we don’t need to build a supercomputer @maxcelcat, just a giant liquour still! WE SHALL RULE THE WORLD IN MOONSHINE!

via TweetDeck

The world’s supercomputers visualised. Australia doesn’t even show up. Typical. http://bit.ly/bQBoXA HT @seancarmody

Wed plan: AM write for Crikey (they are so demanding, if quite lovely); PM probbly gentle desk-clearing; stay warm; evening TBA.

@SnarkyPlatypus Je suis frustrĂ© par ĂȘtre malade. Il ya des choses que je veux faire, et je ne peux pas les faire.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Chesty48 Well I did actually fly SEA-LAX-SYD with this cold, I got it in Seattle, so the pain has already happened.

via TweetDeck in reply to _chesty

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis plein de douleurs et de mucus, et persiste un sentiment d’irritation. Et vous?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

You can never have too much Eurovision, @Tuna, and any blockage of tubes should be considered an honour and a privilege.

via TweetDeck

RT @smperris: Does a blocked Eustachian tube mean you can no longer fall pregnant? [Sadly, yes.]

via TweetDeck

Apparently I have a blocked Eustachian tube, which I thought was in London.

I think today may have to be a “stay warm and fight the cold” day, with heavy-duty procedures involving chilli and ginger.

via TweetDeck

Emerges. Kinda. Well, vaguely.

via TweetDeck

I am home. I am in bed. I am trying to stay warm. I am hoping that the cold dissipates tomorrow. I am the walrus.

RT @grum: thinking that @duncanriley looks good in drag… just sayin’ [That’s a +1 from me.]

@StartPageSearch Nah sorry, lists of journos tends to be a more PR/marketing thing. I just know who I know.

via TweetDeck in reply to StartPageSearch

@helenperris Ah, now you can explain to Mr4 the difference between a duck and a goose. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to helenperris

@SoniaLastrega “operationalise” is stabworthy, yes. I heard “dimensionalise” the other day. I think I complained at the time.

via TweetDeck in reply to soniaahhh

@StartPageSearch I can’t speak for others, but I vastly prefer story pitches via email. Twitter is a social space for me.

via TweetDeck in reply to StartPageSearch

Agreed, @derekbarry. Sadly @StartPageSearch is being WAY too spammy on Twitter. Not a good look, guys.

via TweetDeck

Thank you all for your support re “incentivise”. I agree, @robbiehills, “monetise” is also stabworthy. “Profit from” is acceptable here.
