It’s true, t.A.T.u have come of age. youtu.be/h0vQ9_BhU1M HT, um, somebody I forget who.

My judgement is being questioned.

Unforgiveably, I have been reminded of the existence of this song and this video. youtu.be/FSYZrsHnFCQ

“Play the Rick Santorum drinking game, where you simply take a sip anytime he annoys you.” I like simple rules.

“Baileys, orange vodka, bitters and chocolate flakes”? Oh dear God, no! arseh.at/t3f

@R_Chirgwin Partial migration to Rosella tonight then.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

Please go away and drink wine, @R_Chirgwin.

via TweetDeck

So what happens now is that I stroll to Woolworths to buy everything I need to last until the morning that they’re permitted to sell.

via TweetDeck

I do so love the email at 5pm every Friday telling me how I can contact the Prime Minister over the weekend. They are so trusting.

via TweetDeck

RT @paulcarr: I’m worried we’re setting the bar very low if Terry Jones’ ability to recall people is considered news.

via TweetDeck

RT @feed_the_chooks: Do you think Bob Ellis is down with the Cloud? [Down with anything / everything he can manage, I guess.]

via TweetDeck

“Cloud up my fucking arse!” is going to be the slogan of the year, IMO.

via TweetDeck

@nanopunk You have no idea how reassuring that isn’t.

via TweetDeck in reply to PitcherJenna

“Soaked in resentment”, @GreenJ? Is that the new fragrance from…who? “Resentment!”

via TweetDeck

I am so pathetic.

via TweetDeck

RT @joshgnosis: @EricssonAUSTNZ Is that because of the way the spectrum band is arranged? [Never a minor key, guys. Never.]

via TweetDeck

Sometimes I want to slap people.

via TweetDeck

@voirol I’ve no idea what @UberFacts calculation was based on, but I figured it was a round number for conversational purposes, Grinch.

via TweetDeck in reply to voirol

RT @UberFacts: 100 years from now, there will be about 500 million dead people on Facebook.

via TweetDeck

There seems to be an entire generation of “political commentators” at university in the 1960s who could safely be bulldozed into a landfill.

via TweetDeck

I want to know what Nicky Gallas ACTUALLY said, because “started gratifying himself” is the journo’s euphemism. arseh.at/t3d

via TweetDeck

RT @RealNickHodge: I think I have rather maximised what I can do this week. [I commend this tweet, and also agree with it.]

via TweetDeck

‘Something with a 1” body that’s in everybody’s garden’, @R_Chirgwin @samsonjbutler? arseh.at/t3d Oh. “Body”. Sorry.

via TweetDeck

RT @rod_benson: If only I’d registered the name “Sydney Institute” all those years ago, I’d be old, cranky and wrong by now too.

via TweetDeck

RT @ataraxite: Do you know something about Gerard Henderson that we don’t? [Doubt it. I didn’t study the psychopolitics of the Pleistocene.]

via TweetDeck

It can’t just be persistence, @MrPkD @jonkudelka, or we’d just automatically give airtime to the deluded and mentally ill. Oh wait.

via TweetDeck

It’s a rule in Australian media: You have to agree with all the homosexuals for one full media week after Mardi Gras, right @samsonjbutler?

via TweetDeck

RT @samsonjbutler: @stilgherrian Some unkinder souls than myself might ask exactly the same question of you ;-) *ducks* [I agree, actually.]

via TweetDeck

It’s like when every journalist, editor and talkback host had Bruce Ruxton’s number on speed dial. And they whinge about slacktivism!

via TweetDeck

Or is it just the relentless laziness of a media that knows they can press a button and get a comment, regardless of its merit?

via TweetDeck

Why Gerard Henderson? I mean, seriously, why is SO much attention paid to just one cranky old bloke? Does he have dirt, or what?

via TweetDeck

It happened slowly, almost imperceptibly. But it happened. And now barmaids almost uniformly call me “Darl”.

via TweetDeck

“Looking for unlikely animal friendships in Queensland”, possibly arseh.at/t3a

via TweetDeck

@expectproblems @franksting A Google Images search for “giant douche” is a richer seam of possibilities than I’d thought.

via TweetDeck

RT @GotPrivacy: Audience member “much of the privacy we enjoy is a result of inefficiency” how do you argue for w/o inefficiency?

via TweetDeck

RT @franksting: Is “to facebook” actually a verb? [Yep, I’ve heard it in the wild plenty of times.]

via TweetDeck

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Are you trying to fuel your homicidal instincts? [I don’t need to go to Leura for that!]

via TweetDeck

“White Westerners high-fiving each other online about their social conscience in a giant round of moral masturbation…”

via TweetDeck

“Fairfax blogger Sam De Brito, whose normal beat is the frustrations of having a penis, embraced the campaign enthusiastically…”

via TweetDeck

I also congratulate @BernardKeane on the phrase “a click too far”.

via TweetDeck

“Send in the sock puppets: social media manipulation and Kony”, writes @BernardKeane, without swearing. arseh.at/t39

via TweetDeck

Mobile. I shall zoom up to Leura for lunch, I think. See you there.

via TweetDeck

@Lumension_Aust Stand by. I’m awaiting some timings for a vital interview Thursday, which I’ll have today. Something should be possible.

via TweetDeck in reply to Lumension_Aust

Me at @CSO_Australia: “Oz ethical hackers to be set professional standards” arseh.at/t38

via TweetDeck

@bleeters Typical. You want to drain all the mystery out of life, don’t you! /cc @LiamT

via TweetDeck in reply to bleeters

Wot’s this code? “Researchers can’t identify programming language used in Duqu, ask for help” arseh.at/t37

via TweetDeck

@Lumension_Aust Monday? I doubt it highly. I’m in Sydney on Wednesday afternoon and overnight to Thursday it would seem, TBC at this stage.

via TweetDeck in reply to Lumension_Aust

“Android Market riddled with bogus security products”, writes @LiamT arseh.at/t36

via TweetDeck

RT @R_Chirgwin: At this point in the day, I think it most appropriate if I find a corner and curl up, whimpering. [Recommended action.]

via TweetDeck

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Considering where you are, I think your opportunities for homicide are limited. [There ARE taxis up here you know!]

via TweetDeck

RT @theburgerman: OH: “Why would you buy those Beats headphones if all you’re going to do is hang them around your neck?” [Oh we know why.]

via TweetDeck

Fri plan: Several unrelated sysadmin annoyances; move cottages, maybe; write at least one article; TGIF. Overall, try not to kill anyone.

via TweetDeck

RT @michaelneale: I have all these pitchforks and torches, where are we going today?

via TweetDeck

Friedday. And I still feel crap. I’ll see what the plan will be once I delete all the strange automated emails in the ol’ inbox.
