I’m hearing word that at Google “they” are not letting people ask @TurnbullMalcolm questions. Do no fucking evil my arse.

@Skigod Yeah I know, I caved in. I’m just an inadequate middle-aged man.

Collective fucking bargaining, @liamvhogan? What? So the people with any real talent get paid only the same as seat-warmers?

via TweetDeck

If I were @abcmarkscott I’d toss the lot of them out and make them pitch story by story, like… like… me. And other freelance journos.

via TweetDeck

Why do producers at the ABC think they’re so fuckin’ special they should have permanent jobs when everyone else works project to project?

RT @jumblerant: ‘yet’. Haven’t killed anyone yet… [True dat.]

Bugger. That bastard Irish barman has pointed out a convenient power outlet. There goes one of my more useful excuses.

@phbarratt Too many early mornings this week, I’m just rebalancing.

via TweetDeck in reply to phbarratt

While I shall soon run out of batteries, I’d like to reflect on the fact that I haven’t killed anyone this week. A quiet beer now, I think.

via TweetDeck

OH: “No, if I’m going to get into selling drugs I’m going to do it properly. I mean REALLY properly. Like, container loads.”

I have stumbled into a rather fine little pub except it is an old pub and does not have a convenient power outlet.

via TweetDeck

@kofeyh I’m sure you’re making it more complicated than it needs to be. /cc @expectproblems

via TweetDeck in reply to kofeyh

No, I don’t want to understand it, @expectproblems, I just need to know whether I can kill them.

via TweetDeck

Who are those tossers who think the best way to view Sydney Harbour is from a speedboat doing rapid zigzags? May I kill them?

via TweetDeck

I think you people are a little bit cynical about the competence of journalists. Oh wait.

According to the signage, I’ve just spent an hour inside May Gibbs.

Taxi ETA: 6 mins. Assuming the driver who took the job knows where I am. Which is here. http://arseh.at/9me

via TweetDeck

Hmmm… The taxi operator didn’t know of Bunjaree Cottages. I trust in his drivers, however. Well, I have to.

via TweetDeck

Oh. It’s about an hour later than I wanted it to be now. Looks like I’ll be writing on the train. And like the next 45 mins will be a rush.

via TweetDeck

@dmflower Hah! Yes, once I’ve finished lunch with an old colleague the afternoon is flexible. Make of that what you will.
