Qantas cancels dozens of flights SYD-CBR this week: faulty landing gear on some planes. Timing FTW! http://bit.ly/b8TWzF

RT @rod3000: A baby whale was born in the Derwent, so why is US unemployment 10.5%? [Bob Katter, that’s my guess.]

@niltiac Nothing is a “given”. There is unpredictability in the world. Maybe time we faced that.

I assume @JuliaGllard is just popping down in tracky dacks and ugg boots to get some fags and a pie.

via TweetDeck

That’s so tonight’s TV news has new pictures to show while some reporter drones on about something. TV is SO cool.

ALP Campaign HQ says @JuliaGillard is visiting her local shopping centre at Altona at 1020 i.e. now, “picture opportunity only”

via TweetDeck

Why is a “hung parliament” sooo evil. Europeans, others have coalitions governing all the time. They [gasp!] cooperate.

via TweetDeck

@phildobbie Yes good luck. I phoned all the independents yesterday but oddly enough they were in much demand. Can’t imagine why.

via TweetDeck in reply to phildobbie

OK, there’s no further “independents and broadband” news, so time to finalise the script for “Patch Monday”. Baxoon.

@AndrewColley Since when was the iPad NOT “mainstream”? It’s a consumer device marketed on TV!

via TweetDeck in reply to AndrewColley

@robcorr @robbieg8s And if you add the Nationals to the Liberals, and The Greens to Labor, then we’re almost back to the 2PP mythology.

via TweetDeck

@patrickgibsonau True, adding ABC1 figures should be the go. It was the same content. But as long as we quaintly analyse “channels”…

via TweetDeck in reply to patrickgibsonau

@robbieg8s @SnarkyPlatypus I haven’t checked that figure. But in any event the Constitution is silent on this issue. Governor-General Rulz.

via TweetDeck

@robbieg8s @SnarkyPlatypus I believe Abbot’s claim to have more primary votes only works if you count the Coalition as one party not two.

via TweetDeck

Also if anyone starts lame-arsed partisan political tribal arsehattery today, I will punch them. And then stab them. And then kick them.

via TweetDeck

@patrickgibsonau 160,000 watching stream of ABC News 24 versus 39,000 watching ABC News 24 on broadcast. Then arithmetic.

Hah! ‘Our Daughter Isn’t a Selfish Brat; Your Son Just Hasn’t Read “Atlas Shrugged”’ http://bit.ly/bM4WrS HT @thornae

Mon plan: Finish “Patch Monday” podcast; deep breath; a catch-up-on-paperwork day, including invoicing; evening TBA.

via TweetDeck

@thornae I am proud. Especially of random cultural symbols that I, personally, did not create.

via TweetDeck in reply to thornae

@SnarkyPlatypus Erm, “assignation” generally doesn’t mean what you think it means there. Well, I hope that’s not what you mean. I hope.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus I find the gender assignment in your phrase “le Ayn Rand” amusingly both right and wrong simultaneously.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Je vais survivre. J’ai un seau et une éponge, et une foule de femmes de la Jeunes Libéraux.

ABC News 24 election night: 4x as many watch online stream as broadcast TV. http://bit.ly/clMiF7

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis plein de la démocratie. Il dribble où les orifices n’ont pas été bien calfeutrées. Et vous?

Well spotted, @jjn1: Why Wired wants you to think the web is dead. http://bit.ly/aNXlwY

Yes, yes, Dear Politicians, it’s always someone else’s fault, isn’t it. Sigh.

via TweetDeck

Slowly, slowly unwinding…

via TweetDeck

Well, that’s “Patch Monday” pretty much done, unless I line up a new interview early tomorrow morning. We shall see.

via TweetDeck

Excellent. Bob Katter didn’t say anything that undoes my last three hours of work. He’s such a lovely man.

via TweetDeck

Bother. Bob Katter isn’t adding any more media appointments to his schedule today. Apparently he’s busy. Who knew?

via TweetDeck

Now that I have a recording of “Three minutes??!?!!?”, I wonder what I should do with it…?

via TweetDeck

That journalist who frustratedly complained “Three minutes??!?!!?” sounded like she’s complained about that problem previously.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus @kofeyh My understanding is that if no-one can form stable government then it’s fresh elections.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

RT @CastleJames: They’re just making sure the general public are aware he’s of legal age. That’s all. [Somewhat wrong, James…]

via TweetDeck

That was a rhetorical question, actually, but thank you. Consensus seems to be when he’s 21 or comes out.

via TweetDeck

How long until the media stops mentioning Wyatt Roy’s age every time he’s in the news? Hmmm?

via TweetDeck

Waiting for the Ranga.

via TweetDeck

Pondering which bits and pieces to include in the “Patch Monday” podcast.

via TweetDeck

Reuters: How Australia would navigate a hung parliament http://bit.ly/9EZY4B HT @Warlach

via TweetDeck

If I don’t reply to many tweets today, it’s because all this laughing means frequent trouser-changing. Quite distracting.

via TweetDeck

Sun plan: Laugh; reading; laugh again; edit “Patch Monday” podcast; laugh a bit more; more reading; probably quite a bit more laughing.

via TweetDeck

RRT @JayneAzzo: Imagine having a really bad night. Then this mob show up to your morning coffee run. http://twitpic.com/2gzjfh

Proof God has a sense of humour: Don’t want Fielding to have balance in Senate? OK, ye shall have Katter in the Reps!
