“If you didn’t love a guy who was so in love with himself you’d have a lot of trouble living with Cory.” theconversation.edu.au/bernardi-slips…

via Janetter for Mac

The consensus in the front bar is that Cory Bernardi is “one of a kind”. Indeed.

via Janetter for Mac

@dobes Oh so you got my email then. Excellent.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

Listening to a story about a production of “HMS Pinafore” and an injured pig. Possibly they are separate stories.

via Janetter for Mac

We are watching Channel TEN in the pub, so obviously my tweets from here on in will be the very model of tolerance and good humour.

via Janetter for Mac

@michaelneale No, there’s a couple of locals here who ask whether I’m hacking for Anonymous. This amuses me no end.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to michaelneale

Regulars at The Grand View have noted that I have my MacBook Pro back from repairs and that I must be pleased. Yes, this is a village.

@iain_chalmers Good point. Assault rifles are quite loud. Especially in confined spaces.

@Kate__Stone That’s possibly it, but what’s being built doesn’t seem to match the imagery. My memory could be faulty though.

@jendudley @glengyron @JagerChris It’s a sign of stupidity. Like all of A’s friends and relatives want B to know THEIR private stuff! Twats.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jendudley

@jendudley @JagerChris Sadly, it is a thing. Like matching Jenny Kee clothing.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jendudley

@stevemcilhatton @SnarkyPlatypus This is another video that needs to be made. Bigot Seal seems a good cartoon character to me.

Since it’s such a lovely morning, I shall walk from my Sydney CBD spot to North Sydney. Google says 1 hour 5 minutes. Let’s see.

@pfdotn There may be a photograph of the t-shirt later. I am ambivalent about it.

@TV_Rev Demonstrating how quick fact-checking can be ruins their narrative of “the internet is destroying journalism”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TV_Rev

There’s a thing called the “Microsoft Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit”? An “experience”? Does this person still have a job?

via Janetter for Mac

@ForsakenDAemon Yeah I’m afraid my sense of humour was forcibly removed in 1998.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ForsakenDAemon

@TV_Rev Are you resorting to so-called “facts” AGAIN? They’ll send the van around!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TV_Rev

joshgnosis Perhaps the fact that Cory Bernardi can’t tell the difference between consenting adults and animals warrants further examination.

@nanopunk @juhasaarinen I shudder because I thought the last thing you’d want would be me speaking for you.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PitcherJenna

The more people use the word “engage” or “engagement”, the more I laugh at them inside. Maybe I mean “people”, in scare-quotes.

via Janetter for Mac

“Now marketers can instantly engage Twitter users with rich images” means “There’s a picture now,” but wrapped in pure wank.
