@SnarkyPlatypus Yes “orientate” is a word. “Orient” is “east”, “orientate” is “turn to face east” or, more generally, to face the right way.

Independents “seek semblance of stability”, says Barrie Cassidy. Uhuh. THEY’VE BEEN SAYING IT NON-STOP FOR FOUR DAYS! http://bit.ly/aKbCNV

I can understand Mr Rabbit’s concerns. Checking costings is best done by someone who does it day in day out, whereas Treasury…

Apparently Mr Rabbit has thought up policies SO difficultishly complicatered that Treasury just can’t understand. http://bit.ly/baePMh

@SnarkyPlatypus Il y avait des hommes étranges, oui. Néanmoins, l’Indice de la Rootabilité (IR) a été exceptionnel.

There is a between-elf gap of six hours. That’s going to take quite some explanation. Treasury just can’t provide adequate advice.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Il a commencé avec les elfes et fini avec le tournage des kangourous et lapins. Il va tout de travers. Et vous?

Definitely not right.

Emerges. This can’t be right.

Home, and pondering the conversation about rabbit-shooting.

RT @bengrubb I can be an elf.

via TweetDeck

There are elves. Uhoh. Also, @bengrubb

RT @paulwallbank @stilgherrian Check out the iPhone compatible vacuum cleaner http://yfrog.com/g05mzxj [Sigh. I will get stabby…]

@Davidramli Yeah I’m a bit cranky that the media machine is still being fed, that it still demands to be fed, even when nothing’s happening.

@lukasp What time do things start? Obviously not 4pm, which is what I was originally told! “Finishing touches…”

So this Text100 Christmas in August thingo is actually today, right? I won’t be making my freezing way up York St for nothing?

Cranky people are being cranky.

Sorry, Sir, but a Slayer 1983 tour t-shirt, sandals with brown socks, and a ponytail plus bandana just doesn’t work. Even with the shades.

via TweetDeck

Disgruntled. That was an anoying mistake.

Mobile: Enmore Rd; King St errand; Newtown station; Wynyard station; quite reading spot for a while; probably the Text100 thingo, maybe.

via TweetDeck

I mis-typed “independent”. I am sorry.

@firstdogonmoon But… if Democracy must have New Wave then surely it needs Aussie Glam too? http://youtu.be/NzDUcPfZ…

Are there any media outlets that have NOT proven their arsehattery by using the “Independant’s Day” pun yet?

via TweetDeck

Uhoh. Katter’s control rods have slipped out.

via TweetDeck

“The government of Australia is not a political toy to play with,” says Katter, getting crankier.

via TweetDeck

Bizarre. The journalists seem incapable of adjusting their lines of questioning away from the standard Camberra game.

via TweetDeck

“A lot of people in this room don’t understand. You’re living in a different paradigm,” says Bob Katter. He’s right.

@MiaFreedman Are you SURE that the Aniston before shot is a fake? Jezebel is still calling that a PR avoidance claim.

RT @monkeytypist: Well, it was Ludwig II’s decision to support a united Germany that ultimately led to two world wars… [See? See?]

via TweetDeck

Correction. I blame Bavaria. Which explains a lot.

via TweetDeck

Today is starting very slowly. I blame Belgium.

Thu plan: Re-work a client’s home page layout; lunch & errands; quiet afternoon and, with luck, a quiet evening with optional SEKRITS.

Agreed @JohnBirmingham, Mr Rabbit is indeed on a slow fuse. The Coalition’s self-righteousness will undo them. / @schlep_star

Laughing at Microsoft’s “surprise” by Gold Coast Meter Maids’ uniform. http://bit.ly/aPwgdP 45 years notice not enough? http://bit.ly/9KrSu2

@SnarkyPlatypus @franksting Macquarie says “oriented” is the word for “inclined (in a specified way)” or “directed (in a specified way)”.

via TweetDeck

@JohnBirmingham We should open a book on when Mr Rabbit’s head will finally explode. And whether it’ll be before or after the BobKat’s.

via TweetDeck in reply to JohnBirmingham

@franksting @SnarkyPlatypus Maybe corporate “orientation” should be called “enduckment” not “induction”, c.f. ducks in a row.

via TweetDeck

I’m well sick of people describing the political situation as “chaos”. All is running perfectly fine, thank you. Stop being headless chooks.

via TweetDeck

I am quite liking “l’Indice de la Rootabilité (IR)” as a term too now, as it happens.
