Odd thing is, I generally find the whole genre of “watch and laugh as the police deal with losers” offensive. Maybe it’s a Christmas thing.

@WeAreAustralia I’m actually house sitting in Hurstville this month, so I invite you to an on-record conversation about your experiences.

The woman at the next table seems to be alleging corruption in the NSW government. Goodness.”

Yeah that wine list is somewhat less appealing than it might be. Possibly because it’s floating in all the spillage left on the bar.

@Beaker Sorry to drag “facts” into the argument.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Beaker

@Beaker Um, I think you mean the ANZUS Treaty, the one that makes us Antipodeans slave to the Eagle? Canada’s not part of that.

OH, whiney late middle-aged woman: “I was the one who was assaulted, and then I was the one who got chucked out.”

Who was it said there was a package for me at Enmore LPO? No docket in the postbox. I’m queuing to enquire.

Oh yeah the phone popping up the photo of who’s calling. That can be turned off. Fortunately it was an ok photo that time.

@y011 @darrenpauli Hah. No, I’m not confused by metaphor. I’m just uncertain about the accepted usage of it. I’ve moved on now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to y011

Problem is, now I’ve got “breathless tones” turning into “Breathless Tones” and, well, I don’t need that fantasy in my head, not right now.

via Janetter for Mac

Thanks all. Seems there’s no consensus? I think @garystark, @j_hutch and @elronxenu’s “told us breathlessly” is the practical answer. Ta.

via Janetter for Mac

Quick! When someone “told us in breathless X”, is is “terms”, “tones”, or what? Both sound wrong to me right now.

via Janetter for Mac

@Beaker @joshobrien77 Hah! Um wait. Do you mean go all MMA on the unruly robots, or on me for my unruly question?

@jendudley Also possibly deluding myself. Love the splash screen @falcon_android… erm, not that I’ve seen it of course.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jendudley

@jendudley @falcon_android Cool, well, I just spent my 99c but I won’t fiddle with a new Twitter client while on deadline. No, I won’t.

@HarrisonPolites Thank you. And yes, while syndication has its, erm, revenue-side downside, that’s how it turns out sometimes.

A sudden thought. Did I really see someone tweet something about “sexualise the squirrel” just then? I don’t want to scroll back though.

via Janetter for Mac

No, those two things are not the same and should not be put together like that.
