@docbaty That’s why the Good Lord invented pitchforks and burning brands.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to docbaty

Village life. No need to tell pub staff what you eat and drink. No need to tell the cabbie where to drive.

via Plume for Android

@docbaty There’s civil breach of contract law, but presumably common-law crimes like “creating a false belief”? IANAL.

via Plume for Android in reply to docbaty

@docbaty That’s an everyday meaning of the word “fraud” which is not the same thing as the meaning of fraud in the criminal code.

@Idealaw I have come to the conclusion that lawyers and media folk come from different galaxies.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Idealaw

RT @leslienassar: About to cause mass hysteria. [Well thank fuck for that!]

via Janetter for Mac

Jesus wept, @Idealaw. How do they manage to get the lunch orders through?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @Idealaw: I once worked at a firm where junior staff were not allowed to talk to clients on the phone. Or email w/o partner approval.

via Janetter for Mac

@dawnstarau @Idealaw If you’re so paranoid about people in a company [gasp!] talking to people maybe try @BleeplyApp zdnet.com/bleeply-lets-y…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dawnstarau

@Idealaw Ask your question again, and replace “tweet” with “use the telephone”. What is your answer?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Idealaw

@samsonjbutler No no no! @juhasaarinen reliable informs me they have internets in NZ. Or wherever he pretends to be from.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to samsonjbutler

+100 RT @sylmobile: Adding ‘awesome’ and its baby language variants to one’s twitter filter may well be the best decision you make today.

via Janetter for Mac

I watched the one extant episode of “A for Andromeda” on the weekend. Be careful what you let @mpesce’s lights get up to.

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin What do newspapers do with all those tomatoes anyway?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

Oh good. My £500,000.00 from the Heritage Lottery Board is ready to collect. Just email moneytransfer@xtra.co.nz. Seems legit.

via Janetter for Mac

Nah, @MrMikeStuchbery, they just walked back to their flat shaking their head in confusion.

via Janetter for Mac

Mike__Stuchbery So what happened when the trolls were unmasked on Channel 7? Did they disappear in a puff of smoke, screeching?

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 7:18 PM, Oct 23rd, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

R_Chirgwin The nice thing about filtering rather than unfollowing or blocking, is that the boring self-promoting bores don’t know you’re not listening.

Colgo Kevin Rudd asks the Internet to design his campaign t-shirt. What could possibly go wrong?

Krill Oil is a thing?

via Janetter for Mac

Australians have turned, apparently. Turned against Lance. Whoever the fuck he is.

via Janetter for Mac

On TEN’s breakfast tomorrow, “live coverage of Apple’s latest thing”. So there’s that.

via Janetter for Mac

The Australian Ballet “punches above its weight”. I must’ve missed that performance.

via Janetter for Mac

@NewtonMark Thank you. The long monologue opening was a risky experiment, but I was noticing a pattern.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

@coopesdetat @SnarkyPlatypus @theprojecttv I care about “disaffected gen-y emos and their feelpinions” why, exactly?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to coopesdetat

@coopesdetat @SnarkyPlatypus Fortunately it’s the practice in this front bar to watch @theprojecttv. It is a front bar of quality.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to coopesdetat

Depends what you do with it.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus There was some of it just then, but I got the distinct feeling there’s plenty more to come.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

The other screen is showing Channel Seven and I can feel my brain oozing out through every orifice.

via Janetter for Mac

Channel TEN news is reporting that Channel TEN’s 2013 programming lineup is exciting and full of win. So there you have it.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @MarcusTheVine: I found it. The most boring sentence in the world: instagr.am/p/RHClw2ruX0/ [Certainly a candidate, yes.]

via Janetter for Mac

Please get your prepositions under control.

via Janetter for Mac

We have platters of free sandwiches, egro, there was a wake that was over-catered.

via Janetter for Mac

Why has the Channel TEN weather chap turned into a feral pineapple?

via Janetter for Mac

For your previous tweet.

via Janetter for Mac

Yeah I should’ve caught the train up the hill, eh?

via Janetter for Mac

If you want to take offence of course I’m sorry about that.

via Janetter for Mac

@deconstructo Sadly it was just a matter of hearing him without the butched-up I’m-talking-to-a-customer voice.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to deconstructo

The currawongs are frisky.

via Janetter for Mac

Meanwhile the chap in the Telstra call centre can’t help me with my mobile bill ‘cos “the systems are down”. Try again in two hours.

via Janetter for Mac

See, NOW I’m on hold.

via Janetter for Mac

No, Bank Employee, you didn’t actually have me on hold when you said that to your colleague. [Smirk.]

via Janetter for Mac

@garthk @notrez I arranged that helicopter especially.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to garthk

Exceeding the recommended dosage.

via Janetter for Mac

I wish I could use a prime-time national TV program to deal with my personal psychological travails. I suspect you wish I could too.

RT @oberonsghost: See the Divine Miss M… twitpic.com/b6ldoh [This is kinda right too, in the sense that it’s wrong.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: That’s really a santorum, isn’t it? Twittorum? [I do like “twittorum”.]

via Janetter for Mac

There needs to be a word for when political tweets ooze past the hashtag filters. Something similar to “anal leakage”.

“Jim Haggerty’s Porkin’ Across America”! youtube.com/watch?v=PwQns6…

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Possibly it would work better if I BECAME Michelle Grattan. Sort of an inverse homeopathy?

@SnarkyPlatypus Je n’avais jamais réalisé que Mlle Andrews était le chinois!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@GreenJ I would suspect that a lot of this detail would depend on the specific services that you plan to offer to the drunken sailors.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GreenJ

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis confus par les lesbiennes chinoises. Je crois que le GetUp! est responsable. Et vous?

I am insisting that the kettle boil so I can have another coffee.

Today we are all insisting that things happen.

If you’ve emailed me in the past two weeks and think I haven’t replied yet, you’re probably right.
