@SnarkyPlatypus Well, we could all use a new ideological dildo…

Thinking I should add “qantas” to TweetDeck’s global filter for a few days…

@LessAccounting Spamming people because they mentioned a keyword is REALLY FUCKING LAME. Please go away.

Well, that’s some work out of the way so I can do the Penrith excursion tomorrow. Words. Written words.

via TweetDeck

So, a Sunday excursion to Penrith! And of course I need optical work at the end of the month and after the dental work. I HATE YOU, FATE!

via TweetDeck

@drueyjay Ah excellent! The Penrith Plaza store is indeed open on Sunday. God bless you, Sir! I shall buy you a drink!

via TweetDeck in reply to drueyjay

@R_Chirgwin Nope, neither Specsavers or OPSM is open on a Sunday. At least not in Katoomba. Fortunately I have an older pair as spare.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@drueyjay Well, for a fix I’d need an OPSM, the original suppliers. There’s one in Katoomba. But it’ll have to wait until Monday.

via TweetDeck in reply to drueyjay

So, Specsavers book online form. Offers today (but already closed) and Monday (then says they’ll phone to confirm in two days. Arsehats.

via TweetDeck

Honestly, it’s enough to drive a man to drink.

via TweetDeck

Dear Spectacles Frame, thank you for just breaking you cuntfully inconvenient little fucker arsehat cunt of a cuntful cunt.

via TweetDeck

Oops. I stand corrected. It’s worse. Qantas fleet grounded immediately. Jetstar, QantasLink, Jetconnect operating as normal. Ta, @wolfcat

via TweetDeck

Qantas staff lockout to start 8pm Monday, grounding ALL flights? Orly? arseh.at/luc HT @wolfcat

Well, I tidied up my disaster area, but then there was altogether too much bookkeeping.

via TweetDeck

RT @CbnGal: You’ve got sex on the brain today. [Well, I’m catching up on my bookkeeping. What do you expect?]

via TweetDeck

@miss_shiny I think the mistake there is to have children. Or, if you do have children, to choose a kindergarten over an abattoir.

via TweetDeck in reply to miss_shiny

Truly, there is no such thing as an inappropriate location for some quick, surreptitious masturbation.

via TweetDeck

@phonakins Pretty much any fruit-enhanced alcohol is going to cause a disaster, I reckon.

via TweetDeck in reply to phonakins

OK, the feijoa vodka and apple juice is adequately refreshing, @SnarkyPlatypus @adm_76 @Paul_Murton.

via TweetDeck

@Paul_Murton Oh well if it’s traditional, then here we go!

via TweetDeck in reply to Paul_Murton

@adm_76 Not really. Vodka and apple juice is a traditional polish thing.

via TweetDeck in reply to adm_76

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Always ask the salesperson “Is this alcohol contaminated?” [We need that in multi-lingual phrasebooks.]

via TweetDeck

Well I am trying it now, @Paul_Murton, but I only have apple juice as a mixer so it’s going to be overwhelmed. Unless I invent a martini.

via TweetDeck

Look, @SnarkyPlatypus, when I’m buying vodka at 7am on a Monday morning, vital information shouldn’t be in tiny pastel green writing.

via TweetDeck

So the feijoa is also known as the pineapple guava and guavasteen. All very good, but WTF is it doing in my vodka?

via TweetDeck

@jplonie I’ll make arrangements once I’ve confirmed my next Sydney trip. Mid to late next week, certainly.

via TweetDeck in reply to jplonie

@jplonie Well, that’s a done deal then, Sir! The manual claims it does speed encoding within Final Cut. That’s certainly a help! Thanks.

via TweetDeck in reply to jplonie

@jplonie Actually my main gripe is that process, then importing and rendering in Final Cut Express. I think I just need MOAR COREZ!

via TweetDeck in reply to jplonie

@jplonie Would such a thing be useful for converting one video camera’s .TOD files to .MOV?

via TweetDeck in reply to jplonie

@valeriekhoo Oh, mine’s almost useless because of the physical damage it’s received. It’s amazing it still works.

via TweetDeck in reply to valeriekhoo

Even though my MacBook Pro is 3.5 years old, there’s only one task that slow enough to shit me to tears: video transcoding.

via TweetDeck

Anyway, enough of that. People might think I’m gay or something.

via TweetDeck

@CbnGal He was… adequate, I suppose.

via TweetDeck in reply to CbnGal

RT @lukehopewell: Oh how I hate people… [I thought I’d given you the name of that gun store and shooting range?]

via TweetDeck

@Bondles Yes I think you’re right, with a customer service manager running the cabin crew. At least that’s what I think they announced.

via TweetDeck in reply to Bondles

I just noticed that I left the word “steward” out of that tweet, ‘cos I was wondering if Qantas still used the word “steward”.

via TweetDeck

Should I message him? “Hi, you may not remember me, but you served me dinner and a scotch and soda.”

via TweetDeck

Goodness me. This Qantas looks rather different in this photo than he did on the flight the other day. He had clothes on then, for starters.

via TweetDeck

RT: Me at @technologyspec: “Patching the price of security”: vendors sell complex solutions but simplicity works. arseh.at/lu8

Sat plan: Undo the suitcase/backpack explosion; potter at whatever work takes my fancy as the storm rolls in; enjoy the evening solitude.

via TweetDeck

@michaelneale Sadly Future Stil won’t have time to do everything. Linear Time Stil will have to do something today.

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelneale

Deciding how much work to do today and how much to leave until tomorrow. Related decisions involve alcomahol and food.

via TweetDeck

@MrSportAus Hah! I haven’t been to a party on a farm for years. But I’m sure that like all 21sts tonight’s will be quiet and dignified…

via TweetDeck in reply to alexlucas1993

@AbrasiveTeapot Alas that history of gay men in the military seems to begin with WWII. A bit of history seems to be missing.

via TweetDeck in reply to AbrasiveTeapot

It sayeth here that my weather forecast is for a few storms and showers, 22C. I think I’ll get some photos if the promise is fulfilled.

Hello, Slapperday.
