@jason_a_w @SnarkyPlatypus Your preferences deal questions are all answered at http://bit.ly/dp9TQ9 … ;)

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: The biggest issue the ABC has with bias nowadays is its bias towards vacuousness.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus You can put onions in the freezer for 10 minutes to help stop the volatile oils being so, erm, volatile. Or, just HTFU.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I will be passing a list of questions back to the forum organisers tomorrow.

via TweetDeck

While I’m working, you can be thinking of questions for Tuesday’s ICT Election Forum http://bit.ly/bbZk3G

via TweetDeck

I am now switching into studio mode to get this “Patch Monday” podcast done. I am SO far behind where I wanted to be today.

via TweetDeck

@triplejHack I reckon talking to @belowtheline_au would be a core part of informing first-time Senate voters how it works, yeah?

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark Your speculation (BB policy = OPEL on steroids, CyberSafety = NetAlert with extra AFP funds) sounds about right.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@peterhau Well, there’s documentation… same thing, eh? http://bit.ly/a599rs

via TweetDeck in reply to peterhau

@NewtonMark My speculation: Coalition will announce broadband and cybersafety policies before/at Tuesday’s ICT forum.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@peterjblack Joe Hockey was actually quite specific about “no filter”. Listen to Hack, from 14’45” http://bit.ly/bIJFE5

via TweetDeck

@peterhau You’re following me, so I can DM you, but not the other way around. I think that’s how it works. I should RTFM to be sure.

via TweetDeck in reply to peterhau

@jasonlangenauer The snarling dog poster? http://bit.ly/bTY8al I haven’t had time to follow that up, alas. Bloody corporate scum!

via TweetDeck

My conversation with @peterjblack just then will be a fine example of how poor preparation leads to a messy interview. Editing FTW.

via TweetDeck

Oh well, back to the actual work which needs doing today…

via TweetDeck

Tony announces “I will stand up for re-election”… a week after nominations closed. Strict timetable, he said.

via TweetDeck

Gosh, Tony perked up there on the phrase “strict timetable”. Discipline is an important motivator.

via TweetDeck

Dear Families Having Trouble Making Ends Meet, a Pro Tip: Buy less stuff.

via TweetDeck

I detect a Special Gift moment coming up.

via TweetDeck

Arbor Day will save the planet!

via TweetDeck

Tony, if all the boats were intercepted and people processed, no matter how many, then the border WAS secure, yeah?

via TweetDeck

Cut to slide “Labor’s faceless men” which, erm, cuts off Tony Abbott’s face from TV. Who is the faceless vision switcher?

via TweetDeck

That long pause was where Tony had planned to nod acknowledgment to the rapturous applause but, well, it had finished.

via TweetDeck

They’re playing the long-form TVC so the audience has time to put new batteries in their pacemakers.

via TweetDeck

So if everyone is turning to Tony Abbott for personal help, how will he have time to be Prime Minister?

via TweetDeck

“Tony Abbott has directed his energies” and Julie Bishop’s voice goes all misty WTF?

via TweetDeck

Watching Julie Bishop’s head move is a pleasant reminder of Australia’s expertise in motion-control robotics.

via TweetDeck

I should’ve recorded this Truss speech. It’d make a fantastic audio bed for an action montage sequence.

via TweetDeck

Ah the National Party! Their barrel is being well and truly porked right now. Bonus wave of the Scary Whitlam Doll!

via TweetDeck

Gosh, Warren, people in remote areas have trouble accessing university? Perhaps your NBN could help there? No. Wait.

via TweetDeck

RT @sylmobile: Of course we also have “Fiend Roots Alpaca Runt” http://bit.ly/AubVX

via TweetDeck

And to think I’d undone my pants for this…

via TweetDeck

Those bloody cats have inverted my elephants! [Not a euphemism.]

via TweetDeck

RT @sylmobile: Stand up for Real Action -> Fanatical Turd Snooper [But you can’t hide that much in budgie smugglers…]

via TweetDeck

Why is Bob Downe doing the national anthem?

via TweetDeck

@vealmince I’ve found that not watching TV at all helps a lot.

via TweetDeck in reply to vealmince

Watching Senator Conroy’s keynote to AIIA from the Friday before last. This is my life. http://bit.ly/bW3T2E

via TweetDeck

Sun plan (late): Make “Patch Monday” podcast inc @peterjblack recording 1400; write client’s RFQ; work on 2000-word feature article.

via TweetDeck

Google Translate is full of whales.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Google has failed me. Je ne pense pas que je puisse reprocher à cette occasion.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je ne crois pas que je devrais être blâmé pour le moment. Et vous?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Apart from that, I will be concentrating on my writing through to mid-afternoon. Honestly, I will be. Yes. Don’t question me.

via TweetDeck

Final chance to suggest questions for tomorrow’s ICT Election Forum http://bit.ly/bbZk3G

via TweetDeck

“I’ve made the site myself in Powerpoint and exported it to HTML. Could you convert it to Joomla?” http://bit.ly/aWI3ou

via TweetDeck

Since no-one seems to have set a hashtag for the Walkley Media Conference http://bit.ly/aa5Wsj yet [bloody journalists!] it’s

via TweetDeck

@ozdj If my day goes to plan, I may have some comments about “news” later, but for now I’m limiting my things-to-think-about list.

via TweetDeck in reply to ozdj

Les chats sont cons aussi.

via TweetDeck

Monotrèmes sont cons.

via TweetDeck

Mon plan: Writing writing writing writing writing; 1600+ Walkley Media Conference http://bit.ly/9m5yRe and drinks therefrom; sleep, I hope.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Tout serait plus facile si elle n’était pas si difficile. Et vous?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

And that client’s RFQ is finally written. In a few days we’ll be looking for a web developer to set up their shop to sell their PDFs.

via TweetDeck

@ozdj I wouldn’t even attempt “What is news?” via Twitter. Slogans are not insights. But I’m flat out on other stuff right now sorry.

via TweetDeck in reply to ozdj

It is quiet again, but my fingers smell of cheap fish. Yes, I know there’s a joke there, but it’s too early for that. Even for me.

via TweetDeck

“Miaow! Miaow! Miaow! Miaow! Miaow! Miaow! Miaow! Miaow! Miaow! Miaow! Miaow! Miaow! Miaow! Miaow! Miaow! Miaow! Miaow!” apparently, FFS!

via TweetDeck

Emerges, more or less.

via TweetDeck

I am the only mammal in this room who is not asleep. Rectifying. [exit]

via TweetDeck

@frogworth Tweetdeck did not fit the whole tweet. Or at least it didn’t for me. But my joy in the moment has subsided now.

via TweetDeck in reply to frogworth

@frogworth Yes, literally cats. I was contrasting them to hipsters we saw last night who also failed to operate doors. Tweetdeck fails you.

via TweetDeck in reply to frogworth

@frogworth No, I think these hipsters did have opposable thumbs. Mostly.

via TweetDeck in reply to frogworth

WOULD YOU FUCKING CATS BLOODY WELL CLOSE THE DOOR BEHIND YOU IT’S COLD OUT THERE HONESTLY YOU’RE WORSE THAN THOSE GODDAM FUCKING HIPSTERS!

via TweetDeck

“Ointment” is such a woody word.

via TweetDeck

Oh. I thought the Rooty Hill RSL thing was a joke. This is all much weirder than I’d imagined.

via TweetDeck

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Any recommendations for a good follower management tool? [How about http://bit.ly/bZtGU6 …?]

via TweetDeck

Grog’s Gamut snarkily deconstructs Tony Abbott’s campaign launch http://bit.ly/alzVzT HT @peterjblack

via TweetDeck

My plan morphs. Early night, then early and oddly long day tomorrow. Feature-writing,start of Walkley Media Conference. http://bit.ly/9m5yRe

via TweetDeck

@peterjblack Hah! No, the six hours also included backups, writing the rest of stuff including the web page, mixing etc.

via TweetDeck in reply to peterjblack

The “Patch Monday” podcast is done, but my body aches and my head is blurry and I’m really not in the mood for writing anything tonight.

via TweetDeck

@expectproblems You would need to grab the recipe from @ApostrophePong, ‘cos I wasn’t watching. But it was indeed yummy.

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

Cauliflower, potato and blue cheese soup courtesy of @ApostrophePong, and back to my editing.
