Alarm set for 0500. It’s not that flash a lifestyle. Gorn.

Thank you, @patentology, for explaining that Fortified Verdelhi is what we could once call Madeira. The taste is explained.

via Plume for Android

@mpesce @RealNickHodge It will be something to do with football. Senator Conroy is a bit fond of football.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

Sydney Town Hall. Air strike. NAO!

via Janetter for Mac

Fortified Verdelho is a thing.

@moldor I suggested a number of ways you could get hold of a staff member’s all-areas access card.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to moldor

@jturner_ibrs You had better fuckin’ well be interesting tomorrow or I’m throwing bread rolls. For starters.

via Janetter for Mac

My explanation of how to defeat the hotel’s card key system has somehow failed to reassure other guests.

via Janetter for Mac

Richard E Grant wouldn’t have to put up with this shit.

I am certain that broth is meant to contain things other than water. This entire city must be razed to the ground immediately.

via Plume for Android

Tofu is not a seafood. :(

via Plume for Android

Let’s see what the City will reveal to me… after dark.

RT @Colvinius: Because Soylent Green? [See, I just KNEW you’d be well informed and have the sensible answer. Thank you.]

via Janetter for Mac

Why do we want to give asylum seekers textured vegetable protein? VERY CONFUSE.

via Janetter for Mac

This is not helping me find dinner.

via Janetter for Mac

Lovely @RealNickHodge, I appreciate knowing about the latest in kids TV. trutv.com/shows/combat-p…

via Janetter for Mac

I can see that dinner will have to involve pants at some stage.

via Janetter for Mac

How do you even DO a butter chicken that costs $42? WHAT NEED DOES THIS FULFIL EXACTLY?

via Janetter for Mac

I didn’t know people under the age of 80 used the word “tart” like that any more.

via Janetter for Mac

“Allow us to fulfil your needs. Prices are GST inclusive.”

via Janetter for Mac

There is a button on my telephone that makes that happen.

via Janetter for Mac

Your mother is a meat platter? Or a grapefruit? WHICH IS IT THIS IS SO CONFUSE.

via Janetter for Mac

HAVE YOU JUDGED THE THING YET THERE WAS A THING AND THE PRIME MINISTER HAS JUDGED IT ALREADY SO HAVE YOU JUDGED IT YET IF NOT YOU ARE FAIL.

via Janetter for Mac

Grapefruit do not contain meat. Unless this is all a complicated euphemism.

via Janetter for Mac

@hortovanyi HAHAHAHAHA. No, big data is a magic thing that solves everything and you need to buy one once you’ve bought a cloud. @engochick

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hortovanyi

@Brandstand @feed_the_chooks Possibly The Australian’s management does not quite understand what the word “voluntary” means?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Brandstand

So which grown-up in the media decided that “supertrawler” was an acceptable term? NOTE THAT THIS IS A TRICK QUESTION.

via Janetter for Mac

So why would you fire Kate Moss at an approaching aircraft? That bit’s still got me a little confused.

via Janetter for Mac

No, @RealNickHodge, these are not the rocket launchers you’re looking for and I know nothing about them. smh.com.au/news/national/…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RealNickHodge

@RealNickHodge I do watch out for drones. The train seems full of them.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RealNickHodge

@bubbiting Sorry, at which point did I indicate any form of surprise?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @vealmince: It’s about the same size and weight as Kate Moss. [Always a good metric for a weapons system, yes.]

via Janetter for Mac

“Hey dude, the target… dude? Hey dude, the target is… oh never mind.”

via Janetter for Mac

BTW, the photo illustrating that article. Anyone see a possible training or operationL glitch unfolding? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIM-92_St…

via Janetter for Mac

Seeing a sudden ROI argument for buying one of these. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIM-92_St…

via Janetter for Mac

@engochick @purserj @mpesce There must be some way of making it impossible for them to comment without listening. Electrodes?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to engochick

Today on “I’m an Instant Fucking Expert”, maritime navigation…

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jplonie: I need something which handles multiple personalities better. [Possibly this? nursemyra.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/chains… Should help.]

via Janetter for Mac

Wondering why I’m so tired. Thinking, “Oh yeah, less than four hours of sleep last night.” There’s a possible connection.

via Janetter for Mac

@mpesce I wonder if @engochick will let me respond to that comment in the spirit it deserves…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

RT: “Patch Monday” podcast: “The future of business is Lego” (or APIs) with a lot of @mpesce zdnet.com/au/the-future-… [And a useful comment.]

via Janetter for Mac

There is a sufficiency of stars.

via Plume for Android

On a train, heading to the Sydney CBD, where I shall check into a hotel (not my usual).

via Plume for Android

@intrepidfear Actually the original brief (and fee) for “Patch Monday” was a 20 minute podcast.

via Plume for Android in reply to intrepidfear

Lovely lunch. Thank you, Websense.

via Plume for Android

RT @SnarkyPlatypus So does Bernard Salt still go on about the man shortage? [Well here I am, ladies! Oh wait.]

via Plume for Android

@expectproblems Lunch is booked for 1230 so it’d all be a bit quick.

via Plume for Android in reply to expectproblems

@SnarkyPlatypus No I think you have to choose just one of those positions in the booking, and one uniform.

via Plume for Android in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Instagrams are arriving late and out of timetable order.

via Plume for Android

RT @SnarkyPlatypus @stilgherrian A pre-lunch Bloody Mary. [Oh much more sensible, yes.]

via Plume for Android

I’m going to be in North Sydney quite early, it seems. I shall need a pre-lunch coffee.

via Plume for Android

@GeordieGuy For some reason your reply didn’t show in my stream, only @peterhau’s reply to it. Odd.

via Janetter for Mac

In related gripery, things being common doesn’t mean people “love” them, and things being done a lot does not mean people are “addicted”.

via Janetter for Mac

Dear Tech PR, please stop saying that businesses “embrace” stuff. The verb is just “do”. Sometimes they do things because they have to.

via Janetter for Mac

@juhasaarinen I’ll record a video. I think there’s enough light on the train.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

“Patch Monday” podcast: “The future of business is Lego” (or APIs) with a lot of @mpesce zdnet.com/au/the-future-…

via Janetter for Mac

@Asher_Wolf So, IP Australia has a searchable database of trademarks…

S7U “A phone doesn’t know, because it’s full of cogs made of light or something, whereas a baby is filled with a kind of haunted meat, probably”

via Tweetbot for iOS (retweeted on 10:14 AM, Aug 13th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

Wondering whether I should explain plugging to an editor.

via Janetter for Mac

@BernardK Um, “trying to confirm a previous claim made” is a euphemism for…?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to 19bk69

RT @timehhh I have the fracking Spice Girls in my head [So like io9.com/5933393/spider… or…?]

via Janetter for Mac

Possibly there are too many houses in that tweet.

via Janetter for Mac

Good God! Sydney Opera House House has taken out Google AdWords against my name.

via Janetter for Mac

@semiboganman Thank you. My train has been feeling quite neglected this morning.

via Plume for Android in reply to semibogan

Possibly a poor strategy, talking about diarrhea in the same message as a dinner invitation.

via Plume for Android

@SnarkyPlatypus @NewtonMark It would be nice to make it through just one week without having to get MI6 to sort things out.

via Plume for Android in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@jeamland @NewtonMark Not The Goon Show. But I am a character in one of Ian Livingstone’s Fighting Fantasy gamebooks. I emerge from a swamp.

via Plume for Android in reply to jeamland

@NewtonMark Ah thanks for the heads up. It seems I shall have to send the BBC The Memo. Arsehats.

via Plume for Android in reply to NewtonMark

@SnarkyPlatypus Sadly @mpesce is immune to internet filtering. He claims some sort of global permission.

via Plume for Android in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@dananimal No, but random variations in podcast length can annoy, if people get used to how a certain length fits their day.

via Plume for Android in reply to dananimal

There’s bound to be a taxi along here soon …. instagr.am/p/OPuIntiFjR/

via Instagram

Mobile: The taxi that is due to arrive momentarily shall convey me to Wentworth Falls, where I shall buy a pie and catch a train.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @snerdish: Please don’t make @mpesce an immortal machine intelligence. That can’t end well. [True. Much better that I become one.]

via Janetter for Mac

The “Patch Monday” podcast, it has been filed. I now await the editorial shrieks of horror at its length.

via Janetter for Mac

Uploading @mpesce to the internet.

via Janetter for Mac

There’s an article in The Australian critical of the NBN, y’say? And @TurnbullMalcolm’s linked to it with the word “reckless”? Bugger me!

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus J’ai pris un assez grand nombre des petites pilules qui rendent inutile le seau pour l’instant.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Apparently quite a few people think that the music programming in a closing ceremony should match their taste, and theirs alone.

via Janetter for Mac

Je pense que je vais claquer ma tête dans le mur à plusieurs reprises.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je pense que je n’aurai jamais se remettre de la nausée. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Mon plan: Wrap “Patch Monday” podcast; 0932 train to Sydney; 1230 lunch North Sydney; remainder TBA, chosen from backlog according to mood.

via Janetter for Mac

I shan’t be scrolling back.

via Janetter for Mac

This would be Monday, and for a variety of reasons I’m distinctly unimpressed.
