RT @shipw: they can’t afford marketing [And I can’t afford marketing. Therefore I have dignity. QED. Or, I’m a slime mould. AWESOME!]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to shipw

SLIME MOULDS HAVE DIGNITY.

via Janetter for Mac

Have slime moulds ever issued a press release?

via Janetter for Mac

Apparently slime moulds act as a group.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @ataraxite: Wow, this is awful. UX/UI designers are … inane beyond description.

via Janetter for Mac

But… He’s never done one or, AFAIK, even worked in one.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @RobWauters: My methuselah has at least 3 inches. [Insert your own joke about personal nicknames and inadequacy here.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RobWauters

I’m quite sure I don’t understand the autocorrect reference.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @NewtonMark Ha! Called a punt, and you’ve probably trained your autocorrect and you’ll need to be careful with that. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wine_bott…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark Yes yes yes, but WHO? If it’s Marie Antoinette’s breasts for champagne, whose body parts for the bottle bottom bump-in?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark Much as I’m a fan of wild, uninformed speculation on the internet, the very reason for which it was invented… any conclusions?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

So, who decides the curvature of the cavity in the bottom of wine bottles where your thumb goes so it’s comfortable? Thumb, I said.

via Janetter for Mac

Right. That does it.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @ataraxite I’m not an expert on puppetry, but a marionette’s the one where they have the whole hand inside them, right? [Yes. Yes it is.]

via Janetter for Mac

First draft: “Q: What’s the difference between a Canberra press gallery journalist and a marionette? A: …” Yeah, that’s where I get stuck.

Pro tip: Web-footed things are far more likely to lie about whether they are paying attention.

@ForsakenDAemon That’s a terrible thing to say about Christopher Pyne.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ForsakenDAemon

A Jedward is “like twin Tin Tins with more hair product and less aitches”, says @miss_shiny, and she’d know because she’s clever.

via Janetter for Mac

@Prohairetic Oh yes sorry. :) I’d forgotten Mr Murdoch’s taxonomy of media. I’m tired.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Prohairetic

What is a Jedward?

via Janetter for Mac

@decobroad I mean, I get that this bloke allegedly did a bad thing, but it’s hardly crime of the century. Nor the biggest alleged cover-up.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to decobroad

Dear Journalism, the opposition saying the government is wrong, or vice versa, is not news. Man bites dog is news, remember. Arsehats.

via Janetter for Mac

@decobroad Right. So the story happens when the investigation comes back. I just don’t get why everyone’s every biased utterance is news.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to decobroad

@Prohairetic LOL! Please explain why the choice is between watching a union’s internal circus turned politics horse-race and “crap blogs”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Prohairetic

I mean, when it gets to the end of the month, what life decision will I need to make as a result? What will I have learned about the world?

Something that hasn’t been answered in the Craig Thomson coverage I’ve seen so far: Why should I, or anyone, give a flying fuck?

Well that’s not solidarity, that’s just fuckin’ rubbing it in.

via Janetter for Mac

IF IT’S A KPI THEN WHY DON’T I HAVE ANY CHEESE?

via Janetter for Mac

@intrepidfear It’s not every day but scattered, different trains. Maybe thrice in total. I don’t think anyone’s even noticed.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to intrepidfear

@lukehopewell Maturity is vastly over-rated, except with wine, cheese and more cheese.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

The availability of cheese should never be linked to KPIs.

via Janetter for Mac

@lukehopewell Obvious that tweet triggers your latent superpower to find every typo in everything I’ll do this week.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

@lukehopewell No you’re fine. It’s the English language that’s suffering. It seems you walked into the foment/ferment vortex.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

I am thinking of fomenting some beer with @lukehopewell.

RT @jplonie Pretty sure I just set @stilgherrian up for a
night of searching the Internet for pre-op transsexual wallaby porn. As research.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jplonie

By your use of language shall you be judged. All of you.

via Janetter for Mac

I wouldn’t have a problem with a pre-op transexual wallaby, @jplonie @R_Chirgwin, but AFAIK there isn’t such a thing. Yet.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jplonie

Someone just asked how I knew the wallaby was a “he”. I thought the GIANT TESTICLES were a bit of a giveaway. @R_Chirgwin @jplonie

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

It’s all OK, @jplonie @R_Chirgwin. The wallaby seemed keen to leap in front of the car, but he hopped just ahead of us for 100m or so.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jplonie

@synmedia See, I knew guys were clever beyond belief.

via TweetDeck in reply to synmedia

So, @R_Chirgwin, the cab did not just crash into and kill a wallaby on the @bunjaree track.

via TweetDeck

@synmedia Deciding, specifically, what it’s meant to do. Surprise. Explain. Challenge an assumption. Entertain. Disgust. Relax.

via TweetDeck in reply to synmedia

@synmedia “What makes great content”. twitpic.com/9nkzqi Not calling it content. Realising that “compelling” explains nothing…

It looks more to me like the biggest problem facing business in South Australia is the sheer arsehattery of its peak business body.

There’s no need to try that tricky Greek shit on me, @R_Chirgwin! I studied Logic at a tertiary level. Something about cider.

@Tamarajawad Awww… On the weekend the consensus was that the guy in the background was the best bit! YMMV, of course.

New “Patch Monday” podcast: “War talk dominates 2012” zdnet.com.au/war-talk-domin…

via Janetter for Mac

Apart from the fact that you’re a dreadful attempt at a human being, @juhasaarinen, I’ll pay “Cabbage Patch Monday” as a podcast title.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

“Patch Monday” podcast filed. Whew. Now, a quick cup of tea before my 1330 interview. Then writing. Emailed me? Don’t hold your breath.

via Janetter for Mac

Plodding through podcast editing. “Patch Monday” will be a big one this week, the first of two episodes based on material.

via Janetter for Mac

@riskybusiness Ta for that, Patrick, saves me digging out the URL while I’m on deadline for something else. ;)

Methinks I shall work on the podcast production now, because the first part is brain-free copying of files and other jiggery-pokery.

via Janetter for Mac

Story 1 filed for @zdnetaustralia! Well, it was a rewrite of the one @engochick had rejected because, as she put it, my brain had imploded.

@auspoltragic Nah Fridays are fine for me. Mondays seem to be the worst for deadlines. At least as far as current commitments go.

The US Worldwide Incidents Tracking System for terrorism incidents is down. wits.nctc.gov Anyone seen/heard an explanation?

via Janetter for Mac

Looking that plan, it becomes clear that it’s completely unrealistic. Oh well, I’ll start and see how much of it gets done.

via Janetter for Mac

Mon plan, unordered: Write 2 articles; finish “Patch Monday” podcast; 1330 interview; address client website bugs; train to Wentworth Falls.
