Hoping that I can arrange some sleep through better chemistry before my alarm goes off at 0330 AEST. Did I mention the car arrived at 0500?

via Janetter for Mac

There’s a certain amount of mocking happening on the internets. It does not impress.

Coming to the conclusion that it might be better to pull an all-nighter, then I’ll be able to sleep on the plane SYD to LAX.

OH: “People keep lending money to the Greeks, which only makes sense as an act of cultural charity.”

OH: “‘When will the Greeks default?’ Erm, didn’t you notice? … Of course defaults is how wars start.”

I’m learning heaps about economics, but I’ve no idea what we’re going to do with all these dead chickens.

OK, referring to “the breakfast radio team, Blockhead and The Minge” was possibly going too far…

@paulwfletcher That’s most kind, thank you. But we can still go downhill from here.

And I’m done. I only did the one hooker joke today. I recorded my 10 mins so I’ll post that later.

@garthk It’s the same structure as the two preceding sentences, which together form a list of battles. Nevertheless, I can Humpty Dumpty.

@garthk Mine: “Samsung’s intellectual property versus Apple’s in a series of courtroom battles across the globe,” a verbless sentence.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to garthk

@garthk The “versus” as a verb thing was introduced by subediting at @technologyspec. I disown it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to michaelneale

RT @cafedave: @stilgherrian Mel Gibson? [Yes. Obviously. That would be helpful.]

via Janetter for Mac

Fleshing out the presentation I’ll be giving three hours for now. Resigning myself to the inevitability of having to quote Gibson.

via Janetter for Mac

johnemcintyre You take up a story to edit. The fourth word in the lead sentence is misspelled. Better brew a pot of coffee.
