@aqualung @leslienassar I am a hopeless romantic in certain ways. This is one of them. Ah, a roaring fire…!

@Jester_Jeff Alas, only two nights remain and there’s so many things to do!

One day I’ll manage to click through someone’s link to a Business Insider article without wanting to set fire to a kindergarten.

@emmackat Well, the pool admin contacted me. I just accepted the invitation to add my photo to the pool.

@Jester_Jeff I have an old acquaintance and partner arriving for dinner soon enough. No whiskey required just yet.

HLMenckenBot The only good bureaucrat is one with a pistol at his head. Put it in his hand and it’s good-bye to the Bill of Rights.

@_miw Well Verizon is much more than just their US telco business, which is part of what this media briefing was about.

@_miw I’ve been doing this stilgherrian.com/personal/visit… as well as some other networking.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to _miw

@_miw But I appreciate your intended message.

@_miw You’re linking two unrelated tweets there.

Now look here. I planned a weekend off in Singapore. How come I’ve now got a podcast and two articles to do before Monday morning?

RT @MrSABlack: I didn’t realise your sanity was in any question! Account was settled long ago. ;) [Oh. Yes. Sorry. As you were.]

via Janetter for Mac

@MrSABlack It’s possibly “too soon”, sorry, but my brain insisted on linking the two stories. I question my sanity. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MrSimblaa

@MrSABlack Tony Greig got cancer from the asbestos in his roof WTF? ;)

via Janetter for Mac

I’m not sure how that works with windows, @toastman, unless I have another accident with these lychees.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @toastman: Like a lot of things in Singapore… I’ve learnt, if it has an annoying green tinge… It’s flavoured with pandan leaves.

via Janetter for Mac

Il pleut à Singapour. Avec le tonnerre.

@SnarkyPlatypus Je vous suggère de vérifier les marques de perforation. Apparemment, il ya des sangsues autour d’aujourd’hui.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Given that I started work at 0615 SGT and it’s now 1515 SGT, I think that’s quite enough.

via Janetter for Mac

Also, @GreenJ said much of what I was planning to say in his “A victory for data over punditry” abc.net.au/news/2012-11-0…

At this point I shall RT the xkcd thing that was rather correct. xkcd.com/1131/

via Janetter for Mac

Lychees everywhere!

@dobes @mukimu Well so long as nothing changes. Ever. Because change is bad.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

RT @joshgnosis: Congrats to @dobes as the new ZDNet AU editor [Yes. Congrats. Nice ones.]

via Janetter for Mac

@SBSNews I’m fairly sure that @GeordieGuy is an ANTI-censorship campaigner. I mean, he’s often given that impression… ;)

@jonoabroad “Golf”? What golf? I have no memory of any golf.

@Prohairetic At this stage, after a long and insomnia-addled week, who knows how my brain works?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Prohairetic

@Prohairetic I don’t even know what the question means.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Prohairetic

Right. Maybe if I look at you all from a different hotel you’ll look less stupid. Mobile.

via Janetter for Mac

Calls for Conroy’s sacking? WTF? Lemme get this straight. You want to sack the minister who heard you and made the hated policy go away?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @Emveem: Thankfully SMH just published a story letting us all know there was a storm ‘approaching’.

via Janetter for Mac

Fri plan, remainder: Change hotels; write outline for @CSO_Australia story; deal with end-of-week loose ends; TGIF, details TBA.

Thank you, @PennySharpemlc @richardaedy, and anyone else I missed. Somehow the Muse was with me today.

@vealmince @jeamland @kanewishart Thank you. I suspect, though, that neither Gerry Harvey nor Roger Wilcox are now my friend.

Well that was a most pleasant series of breakfasts. It approaches 1100 SGT. Let’s review the day’s plans. Stand by.

smperris If you want representatives to remain open to evidence based decision making, stop treating change as a marker of weakness.

via Tweetbot for iOS (retweeted on 1:34 PM, Nov 9th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

smperris You know why politicians remain faithful to ridiculous policies? It’s because an informed change of opinions is always a “backflip”. FFS.

via Tweetbot for iOS (retweeted on 1:34 PM, Nov 9th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

I’m looking at my story at @crikey_news from Singapore. The page is studded with adverts for “Dating Chinese girls”. Lulz.

via Janetter for Mac

Personally I’d not have used “backdown”. Evolving a policy requires change. Change being backdowns and backflips is horse-race stuff.

via Janetter for Mac

Me at @crikey_news: “Net filter backdown shows power in the hands of the smart” crikey.com.au/2012/11/09/net…

On this is an interesting headline…

via Janetter for Mac

Right. Story written. Conference call done. It’s 0930 SGT and I NEED SOME BREAKFASTS!

via Janetter for Mac

我不是河蟹。

via Janetter for Mac

Story filed for @crikey_news. Awaiting confirmation or otherwise of my hero status.

Octane Donald Trump to march on Washington to protest at a travesty. Your hair, sweetheart. I suggest you sing We Shall Over Comb.

Given the number of tweets and emails I seem to have coming at me, I gather there’s a news story people want me to comment on.

RT @McDermie: @stilgherrian @realDonaldTrump Revolutions always turn out well for arrogant rich people with big mouths.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @elronxenu: It’ll be hair any day now. [Od dear. That seems to set the tone for the day.]

via Janetter for Mac

By the way, @realDonaldTrump, how’s that revolution going?

via Janetter for Mac

Hello, Friday. What do you have in store for me, and how can I prevent it happening?
