I’d like to thank today’s Afghani taxi driver for telling me his refugee story, escaping from Kabul in 1989 aged 13. He loves Australia.

OH: “I would have to see the pizza.”

OH: “Would you share a pizza with me?” “How big?” “It doesn’t matter, just would you share with me?”

OH, on phone: “I’m in the city… The city. Yeah, I’m in the city. The city? In the city, yeah… I’m in the city. Yeah, the city.”

OH: “I just delete them. I just can’t stand his messages being in my phone. They’re always about love. They’re so Italian.”

via TweetDeck

I wonder whether his voice could possibly be any more nasal and whiney?

Unimpressed, La Niña!

“Maybe so, but it doesn’t FEEL unaustralian!”

RT @purserj: Interesting, if you type @stilgherrian into google the first suggestion is “stilgherrian real name”. [Both true and ironic.]

I’m always amused by people whose political “analysis” can’t go past a few outdated categories of name-calling. /cc @franksting @jeamland

Yes, @franksting @jeamland, I’m an evil Communist leftie who’s… run his own businesses, employed staff, and supports a strong military.

Disagreeing with the Domain Name System. Generally. But especially PTR records.

@Skud Your memory is better than mine. I know we’ve met, somewhere, somewhen. 1999 could well be it. /cc @iain_chalmers

via TweetDeck

Yes, @brettatitnews @tomjsenior @trib , I’m pretty sure all 1970s kids TV was the result of a decade-long acid trip.

via TweetDeck

CSO story filed. Now for more apple juice and… oh I don’t know what else.

@NewtonMark Did you say “thought police”? Oh, there was a comma…

I’m squealing the squeal right now. But it’s not bacony.

I use and recommend @firstdogonmoon’s Factbricator™ for squealing the squeal of truthful bacony goodness. arseh.at/9xq

Ta for the insomnia suggestions, @nwjerseyliz @jonoabroad @benmoretti. Playing at home? Valerian root, Ambien, Restavit, Avanza.

via TweetDeck

Thanks for your sympathies, @nwjerseyliz @cheshireb. I’ve tried melatonin, @samjackel, but inadequate for me. Over the counter, tho? Here?

@CosmicRami Nothing specific planned for the weekend yet. I’ve been tending towards rather quiet weekends lately.

It appears that Deutschlandradio has also picked up the Google-rant story. This is most amusing. arseh.at/9yj

@R_Chirgwin There’s been 3300+ click-throughs from ElReg so far, plus whatever Google Analytics’ delay is.

The traffic reports and my experience tell me that visits to my “real names” Google-rant blog post have probably not yet peaked.

Fri plan, unordered: Write for CSO; edit interview for “Patch Monday” podcast; perhaps other writing; plan next week; TGIF.

But even though I’m feeling crap today, I think I can still handle things better than this person. arseh.at/9yi

God I feel shit. I do not recommend insomnia as a lifestyle choice. Not that it was a choice.

via TweetDeck

Friedday. And in the names of all the gods do I feel fried today. Happy 0600, Sydney.
