@peter_tonoli @EnsignR Well, I suppose I’m trying to find out what’s happening in Melbourne around then. But I’m too tired to think.

If I were in Melbourne about two weeks from now, would that be a good thing?

@Anthony_Caruana I was thinking of heading to 31 for cocktails and canapes, but I’m not sure I have energy even for that. Stand by.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Anthony_Caruana

A hot shower has refreshed me, yes, but not activated me. Instead, it’s relaxed me and convinced me to sloth. Probably.

via Janetter for Mac

It approached 1800 SGT and I am back at the hotel, hoping to de-sweat and then collapse, probably.

via Janetter for Mac

“Mood” alcohol was not my intention. Obviously. Why are you so stupid?

via Cloudhopper

OH: “And then it went downhill.” Yes. Then.

via Cloudhopper

OH, re last night’s pole dancing: “I keep telling you, that wasn’t a girl.”

via Cloudhopper

She. Keeps. Bringing. Me. Mood. Alcohol.

via Cloudhopper

Sentosa Golf Club. VIP entrance. Verizon hospitality suite. No Wi-Fi. ENDLESS FOOD AND DRINK.

via Cloudhopper

Client task done. Going mobile. Not sure what connectivity I’ll have.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh. Client task needs doing first I am not doing that task. And then it’s back to catching a taxi not the MRT.

via Janetter for Mac

@kimogrady1 Why on earth would I “break rules” on a transit system?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to EX_V19

Bugger it. I shall try using the transit system to get from the hotel to Harbour Front, and then the Verizon shuttle to the golf course.

via Janetter for Mac

@jendudley I reckon we need to boost your sense of adventure.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jendudley

@juhasaarinen Thanks. I’ve got time Fri-Sun to do all those explorations. Today I’m taking advantage of the offered hospitality.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

Client is pleased that I was disinclined to make them look like a goose.

via Janetter for Mac

@michaelmeloni True, I have found out good stuff from cabbies. And looking at the route map this journey will be awkward on MRT.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to michaelmeloni

@michaelmeloni I’m no going to learn much about Singapore by catching a taxi, am I?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to michaelmeloni

Studying transit maps with only a small amount of confusion. So far. Only after that will I attempt to understand fares and ticketing.

via Janetter for Mac

Ah! The hospitality shuttle to the golf course is only from the nearest MRT station. I get to explore the transit system.

via Janetter for Mac

Thu plan, updated: Minor client webby work (done); hospitality at Sentosa Golf Club; organise “Patch Monday” podcast; collapse.

via Janetter for Mac

@skribe You see what I see from up here. I have NFI what’s going on.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to skribe

Emailing a client to say I’m disinclined to do as they request. “Disinclined” is a lovely word, and my disinclination will save them grief.

via Janetter for Mac

@jendudley Next time you’re in Sydney, let me take you on a tour of Suburbs Where Housewives Are Found. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jendudley

Well that was 2.75 hours of HTML, PHP and other fart-arounds rather than 1 hour. Rearranging my day.

@SnarkyPlatypus Can I swap this narrative for the one about the pig and the television?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@exploreplanets @marcoostini Surely today would be a BAD day to write to the President, ‘cos your message will be lost in the clutter?

OK I AM HEADING UP FOR BREAKFAST NOW.

via Janetter for Mac

People who write or say anything about how important Twitter was to any election anywhere ever.

via Janetter for Mac

Hey guys, what if we said that all thoughts and people were either “up” or “down” and the two tribes shouted at each other endlessly?

via Janetter for Mac

What qualifications to you need to write any goddam shit you like in a national newspaper and be paid for it? Asking for a friend.

I’m not sure that I actually wanted to know. Oh well, I’m going to have a shower and then head up for breakfast.

@KeithConlon @1395FIVEaa Your intro has to be a reference to “Snakes on a Plain”, right?

@SnarkyPlatypus @HarrisonPolites People who view the world solely through the prism of money rarely have a functioning sense of humour.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Hang on. If the Dow Jones dropped that means Wall Street didn’t predict the election result either. Aren’t markets meant to know everything?

via Janetter for Mac

Really, it is absolutely necessary to make up an entirely new branch of pseudo-economics to avoid a sportsmanlike “Well, they beat us”?

via Janetter for Mac

Join those three retweets and you have an entire explanation right there. Or at least a Narrative. And you only need a Narrative, right?

via Janetter for Mac

HarrisonPolites Just asked my Business Spectator colleagues if it was possible to bungy jump or absail off the ‘fiscal cliff’. They didn’t find it funny.

@jonoabroad @michaelneale Oh I know that PITA. It brings back memories of rebuilding my backup systems while hotel-hoppingg.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@macleanbrendan @realDonaldTrump Well that would require him to pay attention to the voices from OUTSIDE his head.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @macleanbrendan: @stilgherrian @realDonaldTrump I also get the feeling he’s never once looked at his ‘mentions’.

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Stop vilifying cocaine.

via Janetter for Mac

I am now suspecting that the @realDonaldTrump Twitter feed is actually a long-form PSA warning against cocaine abuse.

@jonoabroad [nods] Understand the migration PITA completely. “If it ain’t broke” etc. But sounds like it’s broke now? @michaelneale

@jonoabroad I’m curious. Your VM of choice is Parallels? I thought VirtualBox had become the choice of the cool kids?

@AhmedMasud @myrcurial So, I’m just going to cry now. Because you have tweeted MOAR BETTEROR than I did. Sulk. Sulk. Sulk.
