You’re so vain you probably think this tweet is about you.

via TweetDeck

“Look look! Someone said something nice about me!” Maybe ask yourself why such an event is unusual enough to be noteworthy.

via TweetDeck

I’ll say it again. RTing all the compliments you get is fuckin’ pathetic. Being your own fan club echo chamber FTL.

via TweetDeck

I’m an Australian, @R_Chirgwin, of course there is beetroot on the burger why would there not be you weird Communist freak?

via TweetDeck

I think I can trust these bastards to make a burger without fucking it up. Probably.

via TweetDeck

Those tweets weren’t as funny as you think they were.

via TweetDeck

Swearing at a Senator. Australians’ birthright.

via TweetDeck

Sigh. Another media release from Senator Wong about what Tony Abbott said. So. Fucking. Bored. With. That.

via TweetDeck

Re-crossing the Nepean.

via TweetDeck

Sure, of course I’ll reinstall all my software and reconstruct my production workflows because some arsehat has a favourite new toy.

via TweetDeck

Previous tweet a quote from @mrbenjaminlaw’s @crikey_news yarn today. arseh.at/t1m

via TweetDeck

“There is an unbearably tense stand-off between a sea of Young Liberals and a man dressed as a platypus.”

via TweetDeck

@andrewdotnich @oliyoung I hate you. Obviously. But yes, “riffing on corsetry” is a phrase full of win.

via TweetDeck

Hey @crikey_news I don’t seem to have a @crikey_news today. Have I (perish the thought!) offended someone?

via TweetDeck

The train departs.

via TweetDeck

Fear not, I’m leaving town in 15 minutes.

via TweetDeck

Competition time! Complete this sentence. “Why doesn’t @jimschembri <insert your answer here>.” Note, I cannot cover your legal fees.

via TweetDeck

Uhuh. Boundary crossed.

via TweetDeck

@andrewdotnich You’re just daring me to make a joke about anal sex, right?

via TweetDeck in reply to andrewdotnich

The clear message there for Wayne Swan is to frock up. The full whalebone.

via TweetDeck

Right, so we go on about “class warfare” and then watch “Downton Abbey”? Uhuh.

via TweetDeck

Yes, there is time for one more beer before the 1723 departs Central station. For some value of sensible.

via TweetDeck

Yeah, you guys remember the “B Ark”, right?

via TweetDeck

Oh do forgive The Media. It’s the Monday after Mardi Gras so they’re “proving” their “diversity” by running token stories about poofs.

via TweetDeck

@ataraxite Remind me to tell you about the psych research done by the ABC on audience complaints and the authoritarian personality.

via TweetDeck

My opinion? I reckon the behaviour being attributed to @jimschembri looks like nothing less than that of an egocentric bully, and worse.

via TweetDeck

“Jim Schembri goes after fake people, too”, it says here in @crikey_news. arseh.at/t1l

via TweetDeck

MT @paulwallbank: I suspect s are more rapacious robber barons on training wheels… [Cue Terry Gilliam animation?]

via TweetDeck

@paulwallbank So that’s prima facie evidence that == Communist, right?

via TweetDeck in reply to paulwallbank

I’m fairly sure “soliciting” is the word.

via TweetDeck

New “Patch Monday” podcast: “Cybercrime and the Russian mob”, plus @ChrisGatford on security stuff. arseh.at/t1j

via TweetDeck

Well, meetings are done. Enjoying the calm of a refreshing Singha before the train journey back to the mountains.

via TweetDeck

@gusworldau Clearly I’m more respectable and compliant than you are. Oh wait.

via TweetDeck in reply to gusworldau

Amused that Art Coviello from RSA, having met me only 10 mins beforehand, called me “incorrigible”. Smart guy.

via TweetDeck

Scuttling down George St to my 1500 interview.

via TweetDeck

Well that was most adequate.

via TweetDeck

So, I have to have lunch at The Summit now. I’ll leave you to it.

via TweetDeck

My advice to @channel_21 would be to keep screeching loudly on Twitter because that generally makes up for every kind of incompetence.

via TweetDeck

Gawd, @channel_21 comes across as the kind of person you’d want to give the benefit of doubt to, yeah? Me neither.

via TweetDeck

Robotripping what even is it?

via TweetDeck

RT @jeamland: I can’t help but think that @stilgherrian has something to do with this. Or @dannolan. arseh.at/t1e

via TweetDeck

MattCowgill Profits in the retail industry were up 11.2% in 2011, total wages in the industry up 3.1%. Looking forward to the next penalty rate whinge.

The barista wears a shark’s tooth around his neck on a leather string. There his masculinity ends.

via TweetDeck

And such impressive dexterity! The whole shake and zip-up done with one hand, shouting all the while.

via TweetDeck

Yeah, mate, if you’re going to shout orders into your phone while standing awkwardly at the urinal, Cantonese is the language of choice.

via TweetDeck

expectproblems @stilgherrian That’s tragic. The last time I arrived at Central and had to go to Wynyard? I was killed. Let that be a lesson to you.

via Twitter for Mac (retweeted on 11:36 AM, Mar 5th, 2012 via TweetDeck)

Stop talking French to me.

via TweetDeck

I am arriving at Central station, but I must continue on another train to Wynyard. The things I have to put up with!

via TweetDeck

Mind you, the very term “landlord” should go. If the arrogant bastards want “lord” in their title, well, the French Option should apply.

via TweetDeck

RT: Audio from the Recordkeeping Roundtable panel “Freedom of Information?” with @Ausflatfish @purfler and me now at arseh.at/t14

via TweetDeck

That’s right, @SnarkyPlatypus, dead people can’t own things. Except copyright, of course, which they can milk for decades.

via TweetDeck

Finally, someone’s doing an article on landlords from hell rather than tenant-bashing. Have you a story to tell? arseh.at/t1d

via TweetDeck

Actually, “Patch Monday” podcast filed! It took 6 mins to upload via Telstra Next G as the train sped from Parramatta to Strathfield.

via TweetDeck

Yes, @franksting, we should make mobile broadband more like the . That is, not mobile at all.

via TweetDeck

Crossing the Nepean.

via TweetDeck

The “Patch Monday” podcast is complete, but I’ve learned that uploading a 25MB file from a moving train is a fool’s errand.

via TweetDeck

Does it improve the picture if I tell you that the male backpacker has an ill-kempt Afro and is balding back to a latitude of 70 north?

via TweetDeck

Right. Earphones inserted, so I can edit my audio. At least I won’t hear the squelching.

via TweetDeck

German backpackers snogging? FFS I can’t face that on an empty stomach!

via TweetDeck

Well, I made it to the station but with insufficient time to grab some breakfast. Train arrives NAO!

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus @jeamland More like “Logan’s Run”, given the demographics up here…

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Cab arrives. Driver naturally blames operator. We now drive fast.

via TweetDeck

Right. Cab driver went to the wrong cottage, didn’t think to check back with base? Arsehat. Will I still make the 0931 train? We shall see.

via TweetDeck

Hmmm… If this cab isn’t here very very soon the day’s schedule will be toast.

via TweetDeck

Podcast links recorded just in time. Cab arriving momentarily, in theory. I hope I have enough to edit on the train.

via TweetDeck

Messiah complex. Typical.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin Indeed. I check the bookings calendar regularly. I know it is always 100% accurate. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin FYI, I’ll stay in Wattle Cottage through to Wednesday, I think, to photography more birds and maybe a few more of the house.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

Mon plan: Record podcast links; 0931 train to Sydney, editing en route; 1230 RSA lunch The Summit; 1500 meeting; 1723 train back; thud.

via TweetDeck

Oh fuck, that’s right, I have to do The Long Commute down to Sydney and back today for a lunch briefing and an interview. Buggerama.

via TweetDeck

Monday. Uhoh.
