I see that @AndySHastings tweeted about Ivanpah Lake as well, but @SnarkyPlatypus was there three minutes earlier.

via TweetDeck

@ApostrophePong I’m glad you’re OK for now. I’ve been too busy to follow the Thai food news in detail, but I have been thinking about you.

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

Fark, I’m exhausted. I think I’ll finish packaging the podcast in the morning. I wake up too early anyway.

via TweetDeck

OK, I have to pay attention to the podcast editing now, but I’ll come back to look at all the desert stuff before retiring. So, in 20 years.

via TweetDeck

Yep, @SnarkyPlatypus has got it. Ivanpah Lake, “a popular place for land sailing and kite buggying”, contaminated by nuclear waste.

via TweetDeck

OK, I’ve just discovered that a whole bunch of people’s replies to me aren’t showing up in TweetDeck.

via TweetDeck

Hey thanks for the suggestions, everyone, but @dekrazee1 has found the mystery desert object! arseh.at/luz But, what is it?

via TweetDeck

But for now I’m assembling the “Patch Monday” podcast, an interview with old-school security guy Jon Callas. arseh.at/luy

via TweetDeck

No latitude / longitude on the mystery desert object, @wolfcat, I just saw it while drinking a triple scotch on the 40-minute flight.

via TweetDeck

So, can anyone tell me what this weird desert object is? Saw it while flying Las Vegas to Los Angeles. arseh.at/lun

@Leighlo I really don’t want metaphors and allusions in my food packaging, thank you very much.

via TweetDeck in reply to Leighlo

@kofeyh @Leighlo What? You think there are shades of instantaneousness? Are you perhaps arsehats of some kind?

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Look, do you know how hard it is to buy those drugs up here? Um, well, neither do I. Obviously. But, like, it’d be hard.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@kofeyh Erm, I don’t go about advertising my lungs as “instant”. YOU HAVE ENTIRELY MISSED THE POINT!

via TweetDeck in reply to kofeyh

“Instant” my arse! These noodles are going to take THREE FUCKING MINUTES!

via TweetDeck

Mind you, I’d have been further through my task list if I hadn’t wandered into video editing on a personal project for three hours.

via TweetDeck

The only problem with doing your Sunday work at an easy pace is that the work then runs well into the evening.

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer @SnarkyPlatypus Lame-joke tweets about Christopher Pyne cheapen us all. I am ashamed.

via TweetDeck

MT @SnarkyPlatypus: @jasonlangenauer [Dolphins] make squeaky noises so ppl don’t feel threatened. [So, much like Christopher Pyne?]

via TweetDeck

@ZaraBaxter @juhasaarinen It’s not really that generous. It’d be more generous to make up entirely new words.

via TweetDeck

@juhasaarinen Especially for you, I’ve just used the word “commoditisation” in an article I’m about to file.

via TweetDeck in reply to juhasaarinen

Speaking of things being wrong, @juhasaarinen … Behold! cornholeaustralia.com They specialise in cornholing games.

via TweetDeck

@juhasaarinen Oh! Thank you for introducing me to a new word: copacetic. You can sub for me any time. Erm, that sounds a bit wrong.

via TweetDeck in reply to juhasaarinen

@juhasaarinen “Embiggen is a perfectly cromulent word.”

via TweetDeck in reply to juhasaarinen

@NickHodgeMSFT Look, if the Space Lizards are so SEKRIT, why is their docking station clearly visible from an RPT air route?

via TweetDeck in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@juhasaarinen Look, can’t you do something useful? Like figure out what this thing in the desert is? arseh.at/lun

via TweetDeck in reply to juhasaarinen

You should listen to me, @juhasaarinen, because I am drinking vodka and know how to use a gun. Der.

via TweetDeck

@juhasaarinen Anyway, you’ve mangled the formation of “walkanizable”. Suffix “-izable” is “capable of being turned into”.

via TweetDeck in reply to juhasaarinen

@juhasaarinen Bah. You’re getting old. Your mind is turning into some sort of stagnated porridge arrangement. Accept the reality of change.

via TweetDeck in reply to juhasaarinen

@ForsakenDAemon Not being a racist, I allow Americans to coin adjectives just like every other variant of English. /cc @juhasaarinen

via TweetDeck

RT @juhasaarinen: “Weaponizable”. What kind of word is that??? [It’s a fucking adjective, that’s what it is. A perfectly clear adjective.]

via TweetDeck

@RatbagsDotCom Sadly, though, the clear blue sky now means an overnight low of 8C. Might need to light a fire before dark.

via TweetDeck in reply to RatbagsDotCom

Taking a few moments out from my work to realise how stunningly beautiful a day it is in the Blue Mountains, despite the weather forecast.

via TweetDeck

OH: “All marriages should be vodkamarriages. I mean, let’s be real, that’s where they all end up anyway. The smell of vodka and despair.”

via TweetDeck

With this Thailand thing, you know, it can’t be good when this much of your county is flooded. arseh.at/luo HT @ApostrophePong

via TweetDeck

New blog post: “Weekly Wrap 73: The Mysteries of the Desert”. Which you must solve. arseh.at/lun

via TweetDeck

Writing on a Sunday goes much better with this flavoured vodka. Maybe the 0730 Monday purchase time was the correct strategy.

via TweetDeck

There is indeed @ScottRhodie’s glitch with NBN Co’s Twitter feed, @mcbridematt, but it doesn’t seem to have been reported outside Twitter.

via TweetDeck

Maybe you mean the Westpac one, @drueyjay? “I’m so very over it today”. Feb 2010. Thanks. arseh.at/luj

via TweetDeck

Hmmm. I need a couple Australian examples of embarrassing Twitter mistakes, like Barry O’Farrell’s . Ideally business.

via TweetDeck

@sylmobile I haven’t begun to think about what sort of glasses. I may get contact leases instead, plus reading glasses.

via TweetDeck in reply to sylmobile

@wraptinweb Oh, I left out the errand to Wentworth Falls, which will begin on foot. I get plenty of sunlight.

via TweetDeck in reply to wraptinweb

I’ve decided to leave the optical work until Monday. The old glasses are proving more or less adequate, if ugly.

via TweetDeck

Sun plan, unordered: Complete “Patch Monday” podcast; write 2 x blog posts; write for CSO; map out the week ahead; sleep.

via TweetDeck

@garthk The other trick is to convince my body to play along with the gag. “Sleep patterns? What are these ‘sleep patterns’?”

via TweetDeck in reply to garthk

Hello, Sunday, and those who live in it.

via TweetDeck

Right. So now the image editing isn’t working properly.

via TweetDeck

@acaderama I think Grindr is a lot like fishing. Or maybe crabbing.

via TweetDeck in reply to acaderama

@acaderama h no apologies required. Some of the scheduling inconvenience is not entirely unrelated to your original theory.

via TweetDeck in reply to acaderama

@acaderama Hah! I daresay the flights would be being booked on Qantas, but it’s more trying to get things to fit pleasantly.

via TweetDeck in reply to acaderama

@acaderama LOL! No, Grindr is not the problem. It’s just that my schedule for the next few weeks isn’t coming together conveniently.

via TweetDeck in reply to acaderama

Irritated with the inverse “convenience” of reality.

via TweetDeck

@kjmci @SnarkyPlatypus Indeed, I continue t be astounded. By everything, really. A sign of memory loss.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus @kjmci Yes, always got for a more distant school.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus @kjmci Look, where the hell are we going to find virgins at this hour?

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, I was promised storms, and there was none. Hardly even any rain.
