Forecast 3C overnight, 9C tomorrow. No gas for the heater. But I have a hot water bottle. It brings back childhood memories.

Beef cheeks in me or not, it is farking cold out here.

via TweetDeck

@sylmobile It’s not far to walk when you’re already here.

via TweetDeck in reply to sylmobile

The special tonight at The Grand View, Wentworth Falls, is beef cheeks for $22.50. Ordered.

Suitably neutral explanation of Apple’s signal-the-camera patent. http://arseh.at/836 HT @johnthelutheran

via TweetDeck

RT @RatbagsDotCom: Don’t go outside the Grand View without your winter woolies. Better to stay there until spring. [Ne’er truer word…]

via TweetDeck

Every time I think my life is fucked up I just remind myself of this kind of slave-to-consumerism bullshittery and smile.

via TweetDeck

@franksting Well I knew people queued for Apple stores, but I assumed that was a brain-dead aberration. Apparently not.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

Not watching TV news is a huge bonus, I’ve found.

via TweetDeck

Au contraire, @franksting, I didn’t “miss” “the Zara thing” at all. No sense of loss whatsoever.

via TweetDeck

WTF? People queue up to get into a new shop? FFS you people really have submitted to the programing, haven’t you!

via TweetDeck

RT @PointZeroOne: Intoxication is the only way channel 9 can be viewed. [Yep, working on it.]

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin I think @sylmobile is driving. Meanwhile I’m hiding from the freezing wind at The Grand View.

via TweetDeck

@sylmobile Which cottage are you in, so I know which one to avoid?

via TweetDeck in reply to sylmobile

The fact that I’m tweeting about Channel Nine is of course prima facie evidence that I’m at a pub. Pubs must show Nine. It’s a Rule.

via TweetDeck

Oh look! Channel Nine has a game show hosted by Eddie McGuire. That’s innovative.

via TweetDeck

Off-duty female police officer charged with urinating on Hyde Park War Memorial. No need to link, I think. That’s the whole story.

via TweetDeck

@RealMichaelTunn I’m suggesting you can’t infer any intent from the existence of a patent, nor that they’ve got it working.

via TweetDeck

Nine News reporting Bert Newton’s hospital admission with a montage of clips… obituary a bit early, guys!

via TweetDeck

Doesn’t anyone reporting this Apple thing know the difference between a patent and a product? Arsehats.

via TweetDeck

Goose, am I. Accidentally turned off the phone’s data link and blamed shitty Wentworth Falls reception.

via TweetDeck

@jmacmullin This is The Sun’s not-especially-accurate version of the Apple gig video-ban tech story. http://arseh.at/82z

via TweetDeck in reply to jmacmullin

@awrd All ok, I’m able to say “no” when needed.

via TweetDeck in reply to awrd

@caldron_baidu The UK radio spot went rather well, thanks, though we didn’t get to the RSL stuff. There’s a podcast but it costs £.

via TweetDeck in reply to caldron_baidu

Indeed you are to blame for the Gold Coast interview, @awrd. I arranged my train trip around their schedule. Ta for the reference.

via TweetDeck

I was in too much pain to write about those things earlier but, hey, codeine and perhaps some cider should help…

via TweetDeck

I’m on ABC 91.7 Gold Coast at 1620 talking Apple gig video-ban tech, LulzSec hacks. Live stream at http://arseh.at/82y

via TweetDeck

RT @therevmountain Is your train traveling the UK? [If only!]

via TweetDeck

Further up the car, a Scot on the phone loudly discusses the problems with his solar power system.

via TweetDeck

I’m on the 1409 Central to Katoomba train. The man next to me wants to talk about what he’s reading in The Guardian Weekly and he smells.

via TweetDeck

My link to @TurnbullMalcolm’s Business Spectator piece is correct, but they seem to be overloaded just now. I can’t fix that.

via TweetDeck

@TurnbullMalcolm Ta for that reference, I’ll look it up when my analytical skills aren’t train- and toothache-limited.

via TweetDeck in reply to TurnbullMalcolm

Halfway through the day and I haven’t killed anyone yet. The codeine is mostly working.

via TweetDeck

RT @BernardKeane: That’s almost SMH-level explanationness. [Almost, yes. I particularly like the little stool.]

via TweetDeck

Here’s another of those photographs that explains everything. http://arseh.at/82s

via TweetDeck

Wombles to play Glastonbury, apparently. http://arseh.at/82r

via TweetDeck

@Warlach @bimyou_bimyou @commuter_dirge And “riding the panda” is a euphemism for what, exactly?

via TweetDeck in reply to Warlach

@aussiegoldy Everything is under control. There is ibuprofen with the codeine.

via TweetDeck

@aussiegoldy It’s “normal” but serious post-filling toothache. It’ll subside eventually, but meanwhile it must simply be endured.

via TweetDeck in reply to aussiegoldy

Errands done. Codeine obtained, consumed. Life can only get better. Well, no, but fuck it.

via TweetDeck

RT @scttw: Think coffee = cigars and reprocess :) [Both Bill Clinton and I are now quite confused.]

via TweetDeck

FFS, it’s just an addiction to an alkaloid stimulant, but wrapped up in so much self-aggrandising wankery.

via TweetDeck

HOW MANY BEANS WERE IN IT? WHERE DID THEY COME FROM? WHAT WERE THEIR NAMES AND WHERE DID THEY GO TO SCHOOL?

via TweetDeck

Laughing at folks who go on about getting a cup of coffee as if it’s a Grand Mission in line with scoring half a kilo of Turkish hash.

via TweetDeck

@akent Maybe if the daily plan didn’t change. :) Over time I’ve been archiving less and less of my data. It started to feel a bit cat-lady.

via TweetDeck in reply to akent

@akent The “something useful” with daily plan tweets is the tweet itself, letting people know what I’m doing, where I’m going. That’s all.

via TweetDeck in reply to akent

@sebchan I haven’t got around to chasing the PayPal thing yet, actually.

via TweetDeck in reply to sebchan

@R_Chirgwin Oh, sure, I’ll let you know when I’m on the train. Timing is all very vague at this stage.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

Careful viewers will note that this is essentially the same plan as yesterday, before it was abandoned. Success did not feature highly.

via TweetDeck

Fri plan, interim: Check out of Camperdown; errands Enmore/Newtown; train to Wentworth Falls; whatever work fits between that and the pain.

via TweetDeck

“The prolific rise of mobile email”, stats from @CampaignMonitor http://arseh.at/82b

via TweetDeck

Of course actual facts are irrelevant. They’re just an excuse to repeat “reckless”, “risky” and similar words.

via TweetDeck

Korean stats don’t support NBN, says @TurnbullMalcolm http://arseh.at/827 but @R_Chirgwin finds the flaw. http://arseh.at/828

via TweetDeck

For those who wanted pictures of all this, well, here’s a video that shows everything. And explains everything. http://youtu.be/QH2-TGUl…

I must admit, the jelly does feel kinda nice when you clench.

via TweetDeck

@tristankenney Yeah tweeting is OK as long as I clench really, really tight. Want pics?

via TweetDeck in reply to tristankenney

RT @rycrozier: Might I suggest becoming encased in carbonite? [I was thinking more jelly. A big bath of jelly shots.]

via TweetDeck

So, the toothache is less-appalling than yesterday, which is a start. It’s OK as long as I don’t eat, drink, talk or move.

via TweetDeck

Friedday. Possibly there will be less pain today.
