Heading back to mah village. Sydney CBD before a ling weekend, with the World Cup too, is going to be a particularly nasty kind of Hell.

Yes, time to leave.

James Squire Brewhouse ruins their quiet waterside escape from the hectic CBD by turning up the loud, totally shit MOR music. Arsehats.

Gawd I could make a whole blog post out of those eating suggestions. But that said, the hardly needs more food blogs. They’re a plague.

via TweetDeck

All suggestions noted for next time, thanks. But James Squire won out. Ale, steak sandwich, quiet sunlight.

I will check out Taste, @virtualpete, as lemongrass chicken sounds good, and then if I feel inspired there is always James Squire Brewhouse.

@sylmobile A little early in the day for The Temple of Love, no?

Drifting up toward Wynyard. All these places seem more interested in pushing addictive alkaloid stimulants than feeding me properly.

Heh! Food is such a personal thing. I shall find something I am sure.

via Twitter Web Client

I should also mention that I’m not particularly sweet-toothed, so baked treats do not appeal. Maybe I shall hunt down laksa. Or pasta.

via Twitter Web Client

Ah. No. Vella Nero is, well, “cafe food”. Been up to too long to want eggs, too hungry for “gourmet sandwiches”. Also, “coffee couture” WTF?

via Twitter Web Client

Vella Nero on Clarence St it is, @seamus and @fridley! I shall pop over there now.

via TweetDeck

Fear not, @macleanbrendan, Jet Café was not on my list. I’ve found that cafés on high-traffic corners are never adequate.

via TweetDeck

Pondering where to have brunch in the Sydney CBD.

@danya I suppose if I treated the World Cup like a ball-equipped version of Eurovision it might be more interesting.

Gawd, Stratfor is doing a series, “Geopolotics of the World Cup” as a promo http://bit.ly/doDUPz

Word history: The perjoration of “douchbag” http://bit.ly/arL9kS That should be a good start to the day

via TweetDeck

Emerges, sort of.

Home, and stabby with astonishment.

@princessnowhere I do hope I am conveying how much I truly depise the worldview you’re promulgating here.

via TweetDeck in reply to allthepie

@princessnowhere Yes, the “insurance fund” is called “being a member of the human race”.

via TweetDeck in reply to allthepie

@princessnowhere Or have you got some magick list of which pursuits are an acceptable risk and which ones aren’t? Based on whose values?

via TweetDeck in reply to allthepie

@princessnowhere How about we just help people in distress without making value judgements about who is and isn’t “worthy” of our help?

via TweetDeck in reply to allthepie

“O hai. Drowning? Well, before we come and help, can we see your chequebook?” What a cuntful fucked-up world that would be.

via TweetDeck

Maybe a few people ought to go read the SOLAS Treaty and consider what breaking it would mean for Australian mariners. Arsehats.

Pump up the jam / pump it up / why your feet are stomping? / And the jam is pumping / look at it get the crowd jumpin’

Hah! @renailemay @LucasJamesAU By “soon” it might be a day or three, I have no control over the ABC’S schedule.

via TweetDeck

Oh the ISPs recording customer data, @LucasJamesAU? I’ve written an op-ed piece which will be on ABC Unleashed soon. Dunno when, exactly.

via TweetDeck

Pondering what to do about dinner.

@jasonlangenauer I don’t know what happens “these days”, I simply don’t know.

via TweetDeck

Dear dear dear @kdelarue do I need to explain the difference between transitive, intransitive and reflexive verbs? [slaps]

via TweetDeck

I would like to be besmirched. Quite a lot, actually.

via TweetDeck

@timwattsau I have just been accused of being “Dr Factorrhoids”, so I’m trying to leave facts out of my arguments. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to TimWattsMP

RT @timwattsau: You realise that more than half that ‘pork barrelling’ is social housing funding? That can’t really be spent anywhere else?

via TweetDeck

God heavens, @JohnBirmingham, don’t tell me your new trashy violent novel is, like, trashy and violent? Bugger, I’ll have to read it.

via TweetDeck

@WoollyMittens Sorry yes I did mention ze war. [It is not the only bad habit I have.]

via TweetDeck in reply to WoollyMittens

Hah! “Labor’s $230m pork barrel to save Finance Minister Lindsay Tanner’s seat” http://bit.ly/agKzBu HT @duncanriley

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: A fair portion of my day has been spent editing tables. Go new role go! [At least it’s not cleaning tables.]

Gents @deptofinternets @duncanriley, you do know that IBM provided punch card technology to run the Holocaust? http://bit.ly/188bmB

Ah dear. The thing about filing stories in a hurry is that you only notice the dodgy transitions about half an hour later. Sigh.

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer Yes. There is something wrong with you. Your thoughts should have turned to beer HOURS ago.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin Yes, arguing with the stupid and/or ignorant is usually a waste of time. I prefer masturbating.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

I see The Bad Guys™ have got their malware emails under way, subject “FIFA World Cup South Africa… bad news”.

via TweetDeck

On indeed @duncanriley, David Marr’s “Quarterly Essay” made it quite clear that Rudd controls everything. And like we didn’t know.

via TweetDeck

Also, congrats to @bengrubb on a great scoop with that story. Well done. http://bit.ly/duxRYJ

Chuckling at people railing against Attorney-General’s Department looking at ISPs recording traffic thinking it’s related to Senator Conroy.

Meanwhile I’ve found something else to write about this afternoon. Hilarious stuff.

I have found a spot with a view of the world, well, a bit of the world, and cold beer. I’ll now see what the rest of the world is up to.
