OH: “Did you see his Bridge tweet this morning?” “Mark Textor? Maybe his children can scrub my basement.” “Is that a euphemism?” “OhGod no!”

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “No, it wasn’t ‘some bullshit ABC production’, I was on staff.”

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “I’ll just cover you in goat’s cheese, what’s wrong with that?”

via Janetter for Mac

I now know what “That’s So Raven” is, and I am not suicidal whatsoever.

via Janetter for Mac

OH: ‘Yeah, but I think that’s just his natural state of being rather than drug use.”

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “You know the problem with polyamory? Scheduling.”

We love you, @marclehmann, but STFU we’re thirsty.

@Nat_Bradford 200 milliseconds off Bondi is, erm, Los Angeles.

“Vanity marketing metrics”, @willscullypower called them.

via Janetter for Mac

So I’ve just fallen in love with @willscullypower. “Email click-throughs? If someone came to me with those garbage metrics I’d sack them.”

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “At the end of the day we’d like to pump more customers out the end of our funnel.”

via Janetter for Mac

Someone needs to look at the grooming of their toenails.

@feed_the_chooks Sorry, no example. Once i heard it happened I deployed the neuron-killing device.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to feed_the_chooks

Are you allowed to use “passion” and “space” in the same sentence?

via Janetter for Mac

@Mrgareth @adamson No idea on numbrs either. We don’t have coherent cloud certification standards yet.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Mrgareth

@adamson @Mrgareth I agree in terms of at the typical business end. I’ve heard some cloud provider nightmare stories.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to adamson

@mattfairhurst I’m using Janetter as my Twiter client. Multiple accounts, themes (stand by), regexp filters.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mattfairhurst

True, @Mrgareth, cloud providers may have built things more securely their end than your own network. Potentially. In theory.

It’s @sophblack’s last day as editor of @crikey_news, so she’s asked us all to write the editorial for her as a parting gift. Off you go.

OK, that’s about as much fun as I plan to have with Jacki Bresic today. Or ever. Time to settle into the work I planned to do this morning.

via Janetter for Mac

Shorter Jacki Bresic: “Waa! Waa! Waa! I can’t make my business work in a changing world because I charge too much! Someone make it stop!”

via Janetter for Mac

Besides, Jacki Bresic, it’s not like your role as a seller of overpriced threads is some sort of fundamental human right. Entitled twat!

via Janetter for Mac

Indeed, @samclifford. “It is the only way we can compete on price,” says Jacki Bresic. It’s not. But if it were, compete on something else!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to samclifford

RT @samclifford: Aus shops should focus on consumer experience rather than assuming we will reward them with custom for making us pay more.

Even at 10% import duty and 10% GST (21% compound), ignore company tax much the same elsewhere, $150 price difference? $700 jeans? Parasite!

via Janetter for Mac

RT @Drag0nista: According to this [import duty on clothing is] 5% and 10% bit.ly/JmxKiz [So I believe Jacki Bresic is indeed a liar.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Drag0nista

BernardKeane I’m waiting for the Bungholio Bomber. Surely Mike Judge could get a contract from the CIA or the FBI for that?

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 8:24 AM, May 11th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

Can someone in the rag trade or who otherwise knows stuff tell me what the import duty on clothing is please?

via Janetter for Mac

Oh fair point. So I deleted that tweet. ;)

via Janetter for Mac

Mind you, if clearly not-poverty-stricken Jacki Bresic charges that much for bits of cloth stitched together she’d be no loss to society.

via Janetter for Mac

Dear Jacki Bresic, how can $150 extra on the price of your jeans be “taxes and duties”? I say you’re lying. Very lying. smh.com.au/lifestyle/shop…

You seem to be thinking along much the same lines, @bernietb @mgherman, which is to be both commended and referred to medical authorities.

The Motivation Fairy shall strike each and every political journalist thrice with his magic wand. [plink! plonk! plank!]

via Janetter for Mac

Again, for the hard of thinking, all that isn’t a party-political point. The effing news media are equally shit across the spectrum.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @Paul_Murton: What? Explain! RT @alextcullen: Vegemite on the front page of the Wall Street Journal! So very weird. [{News|Toilet}paper?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Paul_Murton

I hope the entire Commonwealth Bank headquarters wasn’t looking through the open window about 20 minutes ago.

via Janetter for Mac

Case in point: Getting MPs to comment on an MP’s speech, rather than economists, analysts, fishermen who can read and know arithmetic etc.

via Janetter for Mac

It’s a shame the effing news media can’t recall their mission to tell us what’s going on, rather than quoting biased opinions of same.

via Janetter for Mac

I see @TheKouk has done a fact-check on Mr Abbott’s speech. Shame the effing news media can’t / won’t do this stuff. marketeconomics.com.au/1973-the-abbot…

via Janetter for Mac

Hmmm… Methinks I need a more leisurely morning, working from the hotel, rather than rushing to the conference. I’ll head over pre-lunch.

via Janetter for Mac

How dare you. I am completely convincing.

Those of you surprised by Prince Charles’ TV skills should really watch this. youtube.com/watch?v=5-72mu…

Before then, I must arrange clean pants (I knew I forgot something!) and probably that page of links to go witn my presentation.

Something is wrong.

Things I learned from you lot on Twitter last night? #1 Most of you have embarrassing taste in music. #2 “Holiday Impotencer” is a thing.

RT @leslienassar: @stilgherrian Is ‘Motivation Fairy’ gaycode for drug dealer? Because I’d like an adrenaline/caffeine hit, please. [No.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to leslienassar

Well today I am the Motivation Fairy, so that will help.

Oh dear God. It’s Friday.
