Still too disgruntled. Time to turn off machines and spend some time comforting the recuperating feline. Gone.

@anthonybaxter There’d be no rush to see it, but thanks for the offer. Perhaps when things settle a bit.

@anthonybaxter Alas I did not see Langham’s “Help” but had heard it was good. I watch so little TV…

Also compelling, Dr Pamela Connolly’s “Shrink Rap” with Chris Langham on his child porn conviction. http://arseh.at/34b

If you missed the glory that is “Rake”, all 8 eps are on ABC iView for just 2 more days. http://arseh.at/1bc

“Proud To Be British”: compelling 1973 doco. Casual racism. Justifies class system. http://arseh.at/349 Ping @SnarkyPlatypus

Biopic of Rupert Murdoch written by Jesse Armstrong of “Peep Show” and “In The Thick Of It” fame? Orly? http://arseh.at/348

I probably won’t be paying too much attention to @replies from here on tonight. But scroll back a bit for cat updates.

Disgruntled. Today was not a good day.

@TonySearl There’s a lot of sordid history to those Adelaide private schools…

@Davidramli If I remember properly, I would’ve been better at starting fires. It’s always been a, um, talent. http://arseh.at/346

Yes, @TonySearl, I did go to school with Nick Xenophon. We were even in the same Venturer Scout patrol. It was a long time ago…

Home. Diagnosis: food poisoning, probably. Which is what I thought. $109.10 the cost. Cheap compared to Apollo’s endless battle damage.

Mobile, again: With a cat in a box, to Pet Vets in Petersham.

via TweetDeck

@innerwestlive True, the timing is, um, far from helpful. But I know how to take care of the livestock.

via TweetDeck

@innerwestlive @Reemski Thanks, yes, Pet Vets has been our supplier for years. Ta for the advice, but I really do have this under control.

via TweetDeck

Laksa has helped. A little bit.

Mobile: Enmore Rd errand; lunch; King St errands; back home again to decide on the cat situation and, with luck, get some more work done.

BBC’s man in Australia, Nick Bryant, blogging on the Queensland floods. http://arseh.at/33y

Bugger. No extension to the lease termination deadline. That does make things a bit more complicated. Quite a bit.

via TweetDeck

Meanwhile, there are things on my agenda which must be done during business hours…

via TweetDeck

Ta for the offered diagnoses, but I’ll leave that to a vet. :) If there’s no sign of improvement, well, the local vet re-opens this evening.

via TweetDeck

It would have been slightly more helpful, though, if her chosen location for those activities wasn’t the comfort of my bed.

Ah, a certain little cat called Artemis is sick. Poor thing. Vomiting earlier, now the runs, obviously weak. At least she gets no worse.

@oberonsghost Worse than a client. The property manager. He has a history of poor communication. He will be called out on this. Again.

@dermottbanana I shall certainly re-send the questions tomorrow at the latest. This has to be escalated slowly, alas. Delicate situation.

via TweetDeck in reply to dermottbanana

I have no patience for people who reply to an email with a bunch of unrelated questions without even addressing what I asked to begin with.

via TweetDeck

Tue plan: Get all the client projects back into focus, with a break for lunch and local errands; quiet evening, probably.

via TweetDeck

RT me: New blog post: “Tufte books for sale” http://arseh.at/334 Yes, that Tufte.

Even when their magic toy doesn’t work properly, iPhone users still have a bonding experience. It’d be so sweet, if they were six-year-olds.

I used to use a rhetorical device, but it was difficult to maintain with all those gearwheels, and it caused chafing.

via TweetDeck

Yes, it does fit. Quite comfortably. But it has for a couple of decades now.

It begins. They are watching. And waiting. And they are disturbingly quiet…
