True, @NewtonMark, it’s MUCH better when middle-aged men pretend to be young women. In the dark.

RT @NewtonMark: “No point electing young women to parliament if they pretend to be middle aged men.” Top commentary! @KateEllisMP

Maybe I should just add a couple dozen random words to TweetDeck’s global filter. Milk. Impressive. Conventional. Floor. And others…

Dodgy re-enactment is dodgy.

“Apple continually attempts to scrape even more money from anything that might conceivably pass through iTunes’ tight, leathery anus.”

via TweetDeck

Why didn’t someone tell me about Charlie Brooker’s most recent glorious rant about Apple? http://arseh.at/4r1

via TweetDeck

@Wyane Fortunately the feral goldfish bowl of Slashdot has never appealed to me.

via TweetDeck

@Wyane It took me longer than I might have thought to recognise the reference there. Not sure if that’s good or bad.

“It Looks Like A Planet … But Is It A Planet?” http://arseh.at/4r0

Looking at this 1970s doco, I think I need to create the Historical Museum of Office Potplants.

“The Church of Latter-Day Apple” by @jjn1, on that certain religion… http://arseh.at/4qt

@jasonlangenauer I always love a good self-fulfilling prophecy, don’t you?

via TweetDeck

Wow. The program is “dynamic” AND “engaging” AND “active”. Vague abstract adjectives FTW!

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer See? “Trinity College iPad Pilot: To go further, faster, and with more fun.” http://arseh.at/4qr

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer That’d be “their educational aims of going further, faster and with more fun”. Measured… somehow.

via TweetDeck

“I hereby name my iPad ‘Anaconda’.”

via TweetDeck

Sorry, that was wrong. The iPads were trialled at Trinity College, University of Melbourne, not Trinity Grammar School in Sydney.

via TweetDeck

Trinity College successfully trialled iPads. http://arseh.at/4qq Does that mean successfully turning them into dildos?

via TweetDeck

Amused how hosting clients ignore increasingly urgent emails about space running out, and only call once 100% full and service fails.

via TweetDeck

Tout d’un coup, je suis très fatigué.

“Data download: lies, damned lies and piracy reports” by @BernardKeane deconstructs copyright industry propaganda. http://arseh.at/4qm

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer I thought Quadrant only published stories by old farts re-hashing their on-campus political battles from the early 1960s.

Me at Crikey: “How Al Jazeera leads the world in social media for news reporting” http://arseh.at/4ql [Paywall’d, free trial]

@helenperris That some real estate agents might lie is not surprising. But how come the industry itself seems to condone continual lying.

ABC story filed. The Morning of Solid Writing is complete. Now, who can deliver black pudding to my luxury shotgun shack?

via TweetDeck

Black pudding would do the trick, certainly. But it’s not the only option.

via TweetDeck

Is it tacky to ask people to click on the “Vote” and “Facebook Recommend” buttons on that podcast? Yes. But, like you can if you want.

New Patch Monday podcast: “Cybercrime convention: civil liberties risk?” with @nphair and @coljac. http://arseh.at/4qf

@benmcginnes Eagle? Emperor of Rome? I wouldn’t mind being Emperor of Rome. I’ve seen what Berluscone gets up to. ;)

@RedCircleMedia I am reasonably sure that there are no vultures in this Blue Mountains scrubland.

via TweetDeck in reply to RedCircleMedia

Crikey story filed. I can hear a hawk or a falcon or something, I think. These two facts are probably unrelated.

via TweetDeck

I’ll go with “uprising”, despite your “helpful” suggestions @leslienassar @infoholic @IanKath @jdub. Back to writing.

via TweetDeck

RT @jdub: A mass drugging. [No. Mardi Gras was in Sydney, not Libya. There’s my compulsory clichéd Mardi Gras reference. So shut up.]

via TweetDeck

What are we calling the thing in Libya today? An uprising? Revolution? Civil war?

via TweetDeck

And so a Morning of Writing begins.

via TweetDeck

Real estate speak reminds me of my Paul Neil Milne Johnstone Award http://arseh.at/4qc and the famous Fred Dagg rant http://arseh.at/3ny

via TweetDeck

@WoollyMittens That sounds more like a Michael Hutchence moment. A little early in the say for that, at least here.

via TweetDeck in reply to WoollyMittens

Still amused that the real estate agent advertised my old Enmore home as “top condition”. It’s not. That’s a complete lie.

via TweetDeck

@leslienassar Why would you even have running shoes on a spaceship? There’s nowhere to run.

Mon plan: Write for Crikey; write for ABC; invoicing; write up client project plan; plan next fortnight; start judging Lizzie Awards.

via TweetDeck

Repurposing a rubber band for a most unexpected task.

via TweetDeck

45 minutes of starting out the window has resulted in a productive rethink of a certain client project. That was unexpected.

via TweetDeck

Monday begins with the pre-dawn sounds of kookaburras and some strange groaning, lumbering mammal. Oh, that’s me.
