At 66 York St the revolving door has long since stopped and closed. But within its open quadrant a pair of black-clad teens sit, snogging.

As he throws each table against the wall, ready to pack away, he snorts loudly, sucking the snot back into his sinuses. Customer Care FTW.

Wear what you like, but clothing is a social marker and I will immediately categorise you accordingly.

FFS, young women at Circular Quay, you ARE allowed to wear shorts that extend below your cervix!

Awwwwww.. you are all so uncharitable. You need a hug?

Just so you know, I may have a hoodie, but I am not an internet billionaire. Clear?

Mobile: Walking through the Sydney CBD for a drink by the Harbour, then presumably to some sort of eating establishment.

@Colvinius @mpesce Or the Constellation? But, it seems someone wanted to re-use the Stratocruiser name… bornrich.com/entry/strato-c…

@franksting @NewtonMark @caseyjohnellis I’m toying with the idea of a weekly post listing the week’s idiot innumeracy. Hello, editors?

@caseyjohnellis I’m not THAT old… :/ Oh wait. [And thanks very much, Sir. I still think that’s one of the best things I wrote last year.]

The very existence of the word “skyhome” should be plenty cause for us to take up cudgels and beat everyone wearing a charcoal suit today.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: 3-4 bedroom “Skyhomes” in Chatswood from $1.475 million. Yeah, ok. [By “Skyhomes” you mean “flats”, yeah?]

@chriskkenny @russellmahoney @TheKouk 50 billion sleeps to the next election, at least that many? [I’ll get my jacket now…]

The phrase “anorexic scrag” just came to mind, but I’m sure that can’t be right.

via Janetter for Mac

@paulwallbank @HarrisonPolites And most IT consultants serving SMEs are really just unqualified handypeople, tinkering as best they can.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulwallbank

@paulwallbank @HarrisonPolites Infotech IS a trade: data plumbing, taught at TAFE. Cf software engineering, cf computing science.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulwallbank

@paulwallbank @HarrisonPolites I’d compare the development end of IT more to the building trade. Hired weeks / months on specific projects.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulwallbank

@HarrisonPolites @paulwallbank Indeed, it’d be a good follow-up to fact-check those opininions against ABS, ACS, whatever else exists.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to HarrisonPolites

@HarrisonPolites @paulwallbank Oh no problem. I should say it’s still a perfectly good story about perceptions across the industry…

@RavneelChand What you suggest is completely impossible given real estate prices these days.

Unexpected nap was unexpected. I feel quite drained now. :/

via Janetter for Mac

@markatextor Indeed! I assumed it started from your comment about unkept air yesterday (which was lovely), but from there… who knows!

via Janetter for Mac

@markatextor I have no idea either. It’s an overheard and I was, erm, in no state or position to enquire.

via Janetter for Mac

The last time I was in a cinema was March 2011, I believe. Zero desire to go any time soon.

Reflecting on how much on Twitter is about TV and film. I have so very little interest in passive video entertainment these days.

@paulwallbank @BusinessSpec @HarrisonPolites The 2002 arse-fell-out was Y2K done, GST done, dot-com boom imploded. New post-GFC boom now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulwallbank

@paulwallbank @BusinessSpec @HarrisonPolites I’m frustrated that there’s no chart or graph, just random data points. And no ABS figures?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulwallbank

@paulwallbank @BusinessSpec @HarrisonPolites I’m confused about the time scale. Budget is 1-3 years, cf “last decade”, cf “times gone by”…

Sat plan, disordered: Potter through comms backlog; decide what to do for the Patch Monday” podcast; nap; something about Poland.

Apparently the way to decide whether someone is an FBI informant or not is to screech at each other on Twitter.

@russellmahoney I had the very great pleasure of meeting Leslie Nielsen when he was on the promo tour for “Top Secret”. A true gentleman.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to russellmahoney

@russellmahoney I choose to assume for the moment that that tweet was a glorious compliment. Thank you.
