Lars Rasmussen, co-creator of Google Maps and [cough] Wave hss gone to Facebook. I think I am worried. I’m not linking to TechCrunch though.

I am not going to tell you the name of the thing, because then you will only go and use it and it’s lame.

Sun plan: Produce “Patch Monday” podcast; maybe a bit of writing; somewhere in there, a walk, especially if there is a thunderstorm.

Gone, mostly, except for people who know the secrets.

Because Stephanie Rice can swim fast, we must respect her opinion on all other matters.

Rugby isn’t so much a game as a repressed memory.

So, the lean young man with perfect ringlet hair, accompanied by the fat chick with rainbow angel wings… odds of heterosexuality?

Wading home through a sea of Halloween bullshit.

via TweetDeck

At midnight, there’s a band on King St that will be performing the entirety of Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon”.

via TweetDeck

@drowner1979 No. No typo. I did not mean gin. I meant gun. A Browning 9mm is what I’m trained in and that would suffice.

OH: “It’s ok, I just got caught in the vagina backwash.”

via TweetDeck

Oh God, they are snogging. That happens when Australia is just one try ahead?

via TweetDeck

For reasons which I prefer not to disclose at this moment, I wish I had a gun right now.

@deptofinternets My life is rather special, I think.

He sits transfixed by the Sport. She sits bored, poking at her iPhone. His hand slips inside the waist of her skirt as the crowd roars.

At the other table, the Japanese hipster chicks play with a camera that pretends to be a cheap 1960s disposable, but cost a month’s salary.

via TweetDeck

That is not a euphemism.

The stew having been much reduced, he starts on her leftover pasta.

via TweetDeck

She reaches for the champagne and downs half a glass. He shouts approval at the skilled tackle.

via TweetDeck

The entire time, his eyes have never left the tv screen showing the rugby. And yet his hand continues to move up along her thigh.

via TweetDeck

She has eaten maybe a third of the pasta and pushes it away in disgust. He fondles her thigh while scooping another faceful of stew.

via TweetDeck

Her: Black blouse, floral print skirt, white thongs, long black hair tied back, penne carbonara, cheap champagne.

via TweetDeck

Him: Cheap sky-blue shirt, old jeans with torn knees, sneakers, blond crewcut, beef stew, beer.

There are so many social rules! How can anyone keep track of them all?

Wearing vinyl pants on King St, Newtown, means I am an individual. I have not succumbed to conformity.

If I buy a 2011 wall calendar containing cheap reproductions of famous artwork that’s out of copyright, I myself am more creative.

Innovation happens when smart people are left alone to invent new stuff. Every other word said on the subject is self-serving bullshit.

They have a 4-litre cask of white, a slab of Tooheys Extra Dry and sombreros. Their night has been planned perfectly.

Hey Preppie Boy? Label clothes you’d normally wear on Saturday, splashed with red dye to indicate blood, does not a Halloween costume make.

Wind chimes? WIND CHIMES! There should be planning permission before you’re allowed to install those things!

@ApostrophePong Hah! I only leave SFO on 12 Dec. It’ll be 13 or maybe even 14 before I’m back, given time zones.

Mobile: Enmore Rd; King St; gym, apparently; some sort of social recreation, apparently. Attention limited.

I did a “Patch Monday” podcast on the data retention scheme back in July, if you want background. http://arseh.at/1af

via TweetDeck

RT @D_Keating: *insert witty comment about retaining data from data retention debate here* [Yes, well… shoosh you.]

via TweetDeck

I don’t suppose anyone happened to record the audio stream from yesterday’s data retention debate in the Senate committee?
