@jonaholmesMW @michaelkoziol @AntonyGreenABC And yes, SWS is probably a thing. I’ll elaborate on that thought tomorrow, I think.

@AlaraDemir6 Please drop me from Corby stuff. Not interested, professionally nor personally, esp not 2300 Sat. @jonaholmesMW @michaelkoziol

@jodiem Wow it’s been years since I’ve had gunfire into a neighbour’s house. (And it wasn’t me.)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jodiem

@expectproblems Yeah 100km is an easy walking distance, and there’s good roads. I have cold champagne ready too.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to expectproblems

@jonaholmesMW @michaelkoziol @AntonyGreenABC There’s always another explanation. Balance. Flat Earth, vaccines cause global warming etc.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonaholmesAge

@jeamland It kinda helps if you hold the weapon firmly and brace it properly. They are just arsehats.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

@RealNickHodge I’m still shaking my head over the severe cluelessness of some of those folks. Bang! Weapon all over the joint. GIGGLE! WTF?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RealNickHodge

“Watch your language, or it will be deleted, and that also goes for individuals promoting gun control.” Yeah, that’s right. Jesus wept.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh good. Guns. Guns Gone Wrong. Lots of them. Excellent. Idiots. youtube.com/watch?v=2bqT6-… HT @RealNickHodge

@zzap You’ll be fine, your cat will soon let you know if you’ve got it wrong. ;)

I hope you’re all ready for the Wonderful Reportage on the government’s “White Paper on Australia in the Asian Century” tomorrow. HAHAHA!

This Bald Belieber thing is a glorious meta-troll of news media. theatlanticwire.com/entertainment/… TechCrunch fell for it, o’course. techcrunch.com/2012/10/26/bal…

@michaelkoziol I wouldn’t be so sure. Most conversations I’ve had with @AntonyGreenABC have ended up going a bit weird,.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to michaelkoziol

Your future comet is inadequate.

via Janetter for Mac

The aim was to figure out who even wore brown trousers. The “Why the CBD?” just the excuse to talk to them. They were all weirdly boring.

via Janetter for Mac

I once did a radio vox pop asking why people had come to the CBD today, but I only interviewed men in brown trousers. It was quite surreal.

via Janetter for Mac

@michaelkoziol Possibly @AntonyGreenABC has roped you in to the wrong conversation.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to michaelkoziol

@AntonyGreenABC @michaelkoziol If I had my way, a lot of things would be different about a lot of things.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AntonyGreenABC

Also, @joshgnosis, we see @AntonyGreenABC’s notes about his holiday cycling. All very civilised. No performance-enhancing drugs though.

via Janetter for Mac

StellaRtwot Turns out those miniature liquor bottles aren’t for babies and now my brother says I can’t be the God Mother.

Consuming four different kinds of drugs.

via Janetter for Mac

But, @joshgnosis, the idea of @AntonyGreenABC “getting driven slightly mad” is silly. That’s no drive, it’s a short putt.

via Janetter for Mac

joshgnosis I love that @AntonyGreenABC’s commentary includes his complaints about problems with his computer. bit.ly/SJ2LAH

Wow. I’ve actually achieved everything I planned to achieve today. Can anyone see a comet approaching the Earth?

via Janetter for Mac

@bigmac That’s OK. I like to imagine you sitting quietly, talking to yourself, as your medication starts to kick in.

@expectproblems I do like the one for Blade Runner: “Poor product design leads to trouble for a manufacturer and one exasperated policeman.”

via Janetter for Mac in reply to expectproblems

@expectproblems I must stress, I didn’t write that. @scalzi did. In 2010. With many more. blogs.amctv.com/movie-blog/201…

@bastardsheep While I do appreciate the fashion sense and handy matching floral display, I really must deal with this sore throat. Sorry.

Or try Alien: “A rambunctious alien child invites itself aboard a human cargo ship; a memorable game of hide-and-seek follows.”

@bastardsheep This may come as a shock, sorry, but even that image fails to budge me from my current diet of prescription drugs.

Having consumed the drugs, which were quite boring, I’ve got enough time to get the 1326 train to Wentworth Falls and walk back to @bunjaree

@expectproblems Don’t complain, it’s your only chance to express your individuality. Ever.

via Plume for Android in reply to expectproblems

@logichappens Thanks for the heads-up. I’ll go there next time it’s not a matter for my usual GP in the city. Too late for today though.

via Plume for Android in reply to logichappens

@RatbagsDotCom Sadly I really should head back to a rest-and-fluids day, even though the Long Island Iced Tea would be wonderful.

@John_Sots Close. It’s the in-use overhead on the down track. No overhead on the old refuge.

Yep, I’ll definitely have what she’s having.

Medicare not open on Saturday out here. Should’ve expected that. Meanwhile I reckon the pharmacist has been at the supplies this morning.

Medical advice obtained. Throat ‘quite inflamed’. Prescription for amoxycilin obtained. Walking to Medicare office then pharmacy.

There is free Wi-Fi at SYD yes, but it’s a bit average. Patchy reception, in my experience, depending where you are.

@Andrew_Zammit NP. Ephemeral comments on Twitter often deserve a more permanent record. Now you’ll be read by HANDFULS more people!

@bjkraal Given the tiny little report there, I suspect we’ll never know. But I’d assume USAF isn’t reluctant to blame “human error”.
