Oh no, @danoot, that conversation was not in Mosman. I shan’t say exactly where, but not Mosman. Nor mountains.

Right. I am now leaving the pub two hours later than I’d intended. This is what I do for you people. I suffer.

via TweetDeck

I think I’ll leave it there. That’s a wrap, folks, Thanks for your feedback. I now feel my brain trickling down the back of my shirt.

via TweetDeck

OH: “You should see the cars they have. They’re like the cars of old men.”

via TweetDeck

Damn, I can only hear fragments now, not whole slabs of dialog. Something about the economics of strata title as an investment.

via TweetDeck

I feel like I should offer them cigarettes or something.

via TweetDeck

Wow. Her body language has just totally changed. She’s leaning back in the chair, no tension in her shoulders. Mission accomplished.

via TweetDeck

OH: “It’s expensive. But if you want to move in with me I’ll pay your rent… At the end of the day if I have to pay $600 it’s worth it.”

via TweetDeck

OH: “Where do you want to go?” “Manly.” “Yeah well Manly is very expensive you know. The last few years the market there has been…”

via TweetDeck

HE ASKED HER A QUESTION AND ALLOWED HER TO ANSWER IT USING AN ENTIRE WORD!

via TweetDeck

OH: “It’s like when I went for my driver’s license. You know, check mirrors, look left, look right. Attention to detail. That’s management.”

via TweetDeck

RT @twitchiebitch: The prospect of his pay packet is probably exciting her more than the prospect of sex with him. [Give the lady a cigar!]

via TweetDeck

I do have a solution handy, in my backpack in fact, but deploying it would breach the NSW Listening Devices Act 1992.

via TweetDeck

Fuck fuck fuck the barman has turned up the music.

via TweetDeck

RT @JennaPrice: The prospect of sex can concentrate the mind wonderfully.

via TweetDeck

OH: “Maybe I’ll come back and look at this role in February or March and make my decision then. You don’t want to burn your bridges.”

via TweetDeck

OH: “You need to maintain contacts with all of the big ones. Westpac, NAB… It’s a very sensitive job, very sensitive.”

via TweetDeck

OH: “It’s important that you feel that you’re learning something, and we have very talented managers. But eventually it’s time to move on.”

via TweetDeck

OH: “And he said, ‘What am I going to cook tonight?’ He was 60 years old! How old do you think I am? But seriously, I respect him.”

via TweetDeck

The scariest thing is that she’s lapping it up. We’re an hour into this monologue and she’s still lean-forward attentive.

via TweetDeck

OH: “Everyone can have their opinion, and I respect that. But what if they’re wrong? They always embarrass everyone.”

via TweetDeck

OH: “And do you know why? Because I’m a good manager. I motive people. And everyone says so.”

via TweetDeck

OH: “What am I doing now? I’m a manager. Well, I was a manager before, and I’m a manager still. But I’m earning $7000 more than yesterday.”

via TweetDeck

I wonder if the chap at the next table will realise that he’ll impress the woman he’s with if he stops talking for perhaps, oh, 15 seconds?

via TweetDeck

Daffodils? Oh FFS!

via TweetDeck

Oh God. So far we have cinnamon, roses (twice) and unicorns. Thank you (I suppose) @D_Keating @trib @phonakins

via TweetDeck

Why do people express surprise when a urinal smells like piss? What the fuck do they expect it to smell of?

via TweetDeck

RT @qikipedia: About 9000 people are buried underneath the car park at Melbourne’s popular Queen Victoria Market. [So never over-park.]

via TweetDeck

Oh. Having spent all afternoon at that client’s premises in Mosman, instead of just an hour, I didn’t organise the “Patch Monday” podcast.

via TweetDeck

I have beer. It makes dealing with the comms backlog at 7pm on a Friday night slightly more bearable. Slightly.

via TweetDeck

@AFlanagan It’s fabulous to see you’ve been recruited to the great global malware distribution industry. Hats off, Sir!

via TweetDeck

RT @en_gy One must wonder if there was a comma missing in there ;) [Amongst other things, yes.]

via TweetDeck

@expectproblems Better than a wine cellar. They pay every invoice they receive every week at lunchtime Friday, whether it’s due yet or not.

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

@expectproblems I have a long-standing client here. They’re such a good client that I will even come to Mosman for them.

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

I am in Mosman. It’s a bit wrong. Even Android wanted to correct “Mosman” to “Mismanagement”.(How does that even work?)

via TweetDeck

Wanting to stab people whose idea of political analysis is saying something is either “left” or “right”, as if it’s an explanation.

via TweetDeck

Crossing the Nepean.

via TweetDeck

@onlineeds I don’t really eat sweet pastries. Your custard tarts are safe.

via TweetDeck in reply to onlineeds

Mobile: Cab to Wentworth Falls; bakery; 1031 train to Sydney; change Central; Wynyard station; bus to Mosman; lunch; 1400 client site.

via TweetDeck

RT @isylph: @stilgherrian boil the kettle! :) [What? Are you mad? ANYTHING COULD HAPPEN!]

via TweetDeck

Honestly, this kitchen! No matter how long you run the cold tap, the water never gets hot!

via TweetDeck

No, I don’t sleep on planes successfully, @stufromoz @mpesce, but isn’t this why infosec firms have cocaine? [Theory may not match reality.]

via TweetDeck

Hey, there IS a “freshen up somehow” in that proposal, @mpesce. Sydney Convention Centre has some sort of sheep dip arrangement, don’t they?

via TweetDeck

Would it be sane on 13/9 to arrive from KUL at 0600, freshen up somehow, then go to Symantec’s all-day event ? (Symantec PR need not reply.)

via TweetDeck

OK, I can’t see the rosellas any more. That goddam cherry tree HAS eaten them! @peterhau @Loquacities

via TweetDeck

Fri plan: Tidy; 1031 train to Sydney, client webby work / email / “Patch Monday” plan en route; lunch; 1400 site migration Mosman; TGIF.

via TweetDeck

@VicAgShows That’s the first time I’ve ever received a cynical reality check from an entity that deals in fruit cakes and fairy floss!

via TweetDeck

I’ve just figured out that a certain client only answers an email if it arrives while she’s actually looking at the screen.

via TweetDeck

RT @Loquacities: Interesting mental pictures of blossoms with teeth. [Yeah things can be pretty vicious in the forest.]

via TweetDeck

Scarlet rosellas / timid pink cherry blossoms / one eats the other.

via TweetDeck

Hello, Friday. I’d like you to be cooperative. Do you think you could manage that for me?
