@jasonlangenauer In theory a good should have a reference to nature at some point, but I shall stand well clear tonight.

via TweetDeck

RT @jasonlangenauer: Deluded arsehats / think their tiny lives matter / but they don’t at all.

via TweetDeck

Fifty years into my life, I really should learn how to chew my food properly.

via TweetDeck

@deconstructo Senator Haines and I got along fine. We even got the first interview with her after she lost her Reps attempt. Exclusive!

via TweetDeck in reply to deconstructo

Are there ANY social situations that can’t be improved with half a block of butter, @facibus?

via TweetDeck

Hah! No @F_Dewar @kristinmoore2 Senator Haines’ slap was on my upper arm. This was before we decided normal human contact was a crime.

via TweetDeck

Senator Janine Haines also slapped me and called me a troublemaker, so make of that what you will.

via TweetDeck

As an aside, former Democrat leader Senator Janine Haines told me John Howard was excellent at doing speeches without notes.

via TweetDeck

RT @Nickhodge: No matter how good they look in spandex at the gym someone somewhere is shooting a goat. [I’ve said that SO often.]

via TweetDeck

@Davidramli Gillard’s team did indeed go on about her not using notes. Fool journalists for reporting that before checking.

via TweetDeck in reply to Davidramli

Note for the hard-of-thinking: That is not support for @JuliaGillard, just lack of support for your arsehattery.

via TweetDeck

Who cares whether @JuliaGillard had notes or not? Memorising speeches is for actors, not prime ministers.

via TweetDeck

I am told that none of the excuses were acceptable or even plausible, but I have overridden all objections anyway.

via TweetDeck

@mrsnickhodge It’s probably less “the cat ate my gym shoes” and more “the cat pissed in my gym shoes”. And this may work. Ta.

via TweetDeck in reply to mrsnickhodge

@nanopunk Well @Krumpet has protected his/her tweets, but if they think gym on a Monday is wrong then they’re clearly right.

via TweetDeck in reply to PitcherJenna

@mpesce In Australia the movie “Airplane!” was called “Flying High”. “Airplane” is not a word.

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

RT @Cacotopos: And ‘gymnesia’ is a (sometimes wilful) inability to remember accurately how many times you’ve skipped gym sessions. [Never!]

via TweetDeck

RT @Cacotopos: I think gymnasal describes a person’s tendency to stick their nose into your fitness history. [Wouldn’t take them long.]

via TweetDeck

Is “gymnasal” a word?

via TweetDeck

Oh I agree @garystark I should not have to justify my gymnasal apathy, but @SnarkyPlatypus is a demanding individual. But don’t tell him.

via TweetDeck

@WoollyMittens Thanks for your compliments re my NBN interview on “Patch Monday”, but having a real expert to talk to helps. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to WoollyMittens

Oh these are some excellent excuses, thank you. I shall post a list later, and I’ll let you know which ones work.

via TweetDeck

I wonder what excuse I should make up for not going to the gym tonight?

via TweetDeck

I have not yet found motivation, but at least I’m clearing my head and sorting out some minor loose ends. It’s a start.

via TweetDeck

Released just in time for the election, the iAbbott. It’s multitouch! http://youtu.be/W4XXONUT…

Standing up and moving forward: Enmore Rd errands; King St; lunch; The Search for Motivation.

“The Issue of the Boats”, including cartoon stuff http://bit.ly/dymbLj

via TweetDeck

@randylicious Perhaps add your thoughts as comments on the articles. Sloganeering via Twitter tends not to look rational.

via TweetDeck in reply to _andrewblain_

@aqualung Hah! No plagiarism. I did the original podcast interview and then a Crikey story, but left ZDNet to do their own news version.

via TweetDeck in reply to aqualung

And @zdnetaustralia’s version: “Tower per street for Lib wireless: expert” http://bit.ly/9oabTg

via TweetDeck

Me at Crikey: “Coalition broadband: a wireless tower in every street” http://bit.ly/acEbYR

5 people test positive for drugs at Mudgee. http://bit.ly/dCfMwl Who can blame them?

It seems a newspaper journalist is interested in my rant about Jetstar and Powderfinger’s smeggery [smirks] http://bit.ly/92wIXk

via TweetDeck

RT @nanopunk: Can’t unsee RT @danwarne: Gillard has a pair of balls hanging round her neck, just saying

via TweetDeck

@GreenJ What’s that brown critter sitting on your avatar’s shoulder? Are you doing a Naomi today?

via TweetDeck in reply to GreenJ

What I am meant to be writing is not “Waiting for the Ranga”, but that’s what I’m doing. @engochick will kill me.

via TweetDeck

Hah! ABC’s rainbow election map from 1996, no longer interactive. http://bit.ly/djrxuT HT @ApostrophePong

via TweetDeck

New “Patch Monday” podcast at @zdnetaustralia: “Understanding the broadband election” with @nazzer http://bit.ly/bagPVq

via TweetDeck

OK, heads down for the writing of the words.

via TweetDeck

What experience or qualifications do you need to be a “cultural commentator”? Yeah, that’s what I thought too.

via TweetDeck

Labor to close mobile games, apps loophole: classification will apply. http://bit.ly/9vY54M HT various.

@SnarkyPlatypus @thesixthwoman Erm hello? Juanna Lumley? “The New Avengers”? http://bit.ly/9rSmAB

I am beginning my Writing Time. I imagine the extreme fatigue from insomnia won’t affect my focus at all, no Siree! I’ll report back later.

“So our top story today boils down to The Internet: We’re Using It!” http://bit.ly/9ryr55

via TweetDeck

@franksting My pleasure. Even if my fingers did take their own path to Spelling Freadom for a while there.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

RT @franksting: do I want a Daring Fireball T-Shirt? http://bit.ly/db19S1 [No, you do not. If Gruber wants you to advertisine he can pay.]

via TweetDeck

RT @ApostrophePong: Good to see two wogs fighting each other for a gay statue http://bit.ly/cOX956

via TweetDeck

@peterjblack No it is NOT good to see the AEC advertise on Facebook! Taxpayers’ money going to those secretive arseholes!

via TweetDeck in reply to peterjblack

Tue plan: Writing, and I really must finish this feature thing; remainder of day and evening TBA.

via TweetDeck

I should record every time a politician says “super-fast” broadband so I can play it back in 10 years when it isn’t.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Il y aura un certain nombre de désagréments d’aujourd’hui. Et vous?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Life is too short for early morning OAuth errors.

via TweetDeck

Emerges. Kinda. Insomnia FTL.

via TweetDeck

I think it would be best for everyone if we just turned off the internets for a few days and let everyone have a nice cup of tea.

via TweetDeck

Look, I did warn you about all this earlier.

via TweetDeck

RT @Nickhodge: @chrisjrn @stilgherrian Is there anything Python cannot do? [Yes. Cause zealot programmers to STFU about it.]

via TweetDeck

Jeremy Brett’s fine efforts as Sherlock Holmes will suffice for now.

via TweetDeck

Jetstar has responded re the Powderfinger thingo. Comment 15. Not convinced. http://bit.ly/dBXyJg

via TweetDeck

@twoscomplement But to answer the question, no. I won’t bother if it’s broken. Taxpayers’ money has been wasted.

via TweetDeck in reply to twoscomplement

@twoscomplement With all the options for idle entertainment, why watch a “broken” series, i.e. one with the opening chapter missing?

via TweetDeck in reply to twoscomplement

Bloody 20th Century broadcasting thing. Why must I watch episode X in week Y? Life doesn’t work that way any more!

via TweetDeck

Bloody ABC iView! I can’t “catch up” with “The Prisoner” because episode 1 is already gone. You leave me no alternative…

via TweetDeck

Home, and finding this 7.30 Report “Interview with a Ranga” somewhat disappointing. Not her, but the ritual insider questions.

via TweetDeck

I would like to remind Liberal campaign HQ that I’ve requested twice to get your media releases, but zip. You have 4 days now.

via TweetDeck

I have just been informed that @JuliaGillard will be on The 7.30 Report tonight.

via TweetDeck

Seriously, there isn’t a drug strong enough to enable one to cope…

via TweetDeck

Apparently “believing what you’re talking about” enables you to memorise 3000 words overnight.

via TweetDeck

@mattkassulke And before you whinge about a harsh response, I did say my comment wasn’t about supporting Gillard but focussing on trivia.

via TweetDeck in reply to mattkassulke

@mattkassulke You arsehat. If you think memorising a speech is about “from the heart” then you have no clue. Blind partisan idiocy FTL.

via TweetDeck in reply to mattkassulke

Do it, Frog, do it!

via TweetDeck

Mind you, @Nickhodge, the spelling is “lectern”. For some reason. I blame Susan Butler.

via TweetDeck

RT @Nickhodge: Off the cuff? The AV guy is putting notes on the fricken Lecturn! http://twitpic.com/2f9lfx

via TweetDeck

@ozdj Look, I’m embarrassed enough now for having linked to ReadWriteWeb. Please forgive me.

via TweetDeck in reply to ozdj

The very fact that the ISS passing overhead is an event of note proves that we have failed as a species. That, and .

via TweetDeck

Christ! We have to wait another two years for this “social media” smeggery to end! http://bit.ly/a4PcDV

via TweetDeck

Bruce Schneier’s “Revised Taxonomy of Social Networking Data” helps us ponder privacy issues http://bit.ly/aXsQTg

via TweetDeck

Yeah, that should be OK. I think they’ve finally balanced his meds so he should be bearable.
