@jon_lawrence Oh thanks. Given the feedback today, it seems more people caught the ABC RN piece on the repeat than originally!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jon_lawrence

@kcarruthers @franksting @viveka @purserj Sounds like you’ve got it all under control. Excellent.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kcarruthers

@purserj @kcarruthers Look, I haven’t had anywhere near enough to drink for that!

@viveka @purserj And isn’t that something you’d want to claim as you go to your grave. “I made a thing a money-grubbing arsehole liked.”

via Plume for Android in reply to viveka

Has Sydney’s New Year’s Eve really got the slogan “Embrace Love”? That’s truly embarrassing.

via Plume for Android

@purserj @viveka Indeed, I’ve written previously about the religious fervour behind the startup drive to IPO. Links later.

via Plume for Android in reply to purserj

@caseyjohnellis Yeah but in this case it seems like the other way around.

via Plume for Android in reply to caseyjohnellis

@caseyjohnellis Whatever “bracketing” is, it sounds wrong.

Pausing at a SEKRIT place for a medical ale.

Watching a woman who thinks that being a ditzy blonde moron will improve her chances of being respected in the morning.

Driver of vehicle AZT-40E, you are an ignorant self-centred cunt. Pass it on.

Resigning myself to my apparent role in life.

RT @bronwen Fairfax Media slashes New Zealand mastheads value by 80% scoop.co.nz/stories/BU1212… [Well der. Good thing shareholders are dumb.]

@en_gy If you can’t afford limes then you can’t afford life. You know what to do.

via Plume for Android

Changing location. And the evidence suggests that it was a good time to leave.

via Plume for Android

This is a solipsistic tweet complaining that the weather isn’t organised to suit my personal needs.

via Janetter for Mac

@oberonsghost Tho I’ve been quoted, “So, a Greek recipe. It’s got parsley, garlic, lemon juice, salt… anything else?”

via Janetter for Mac in reply to oberonsghost

@oberonsghost Well, if we’re going coriander then we need chilli as well.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to oberonsghost

Ah, made-up statistics! The BEST kind of statistics!

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “How do you get to Castle Cove?”

via Janetter for Mac

@purserj If by “disrupt” you mean “gun down in cold blood”, then yes.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to purserj

OH: “They had 20 different dishes, but I don’t remember any of them.”

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “The restaurant is called Phoenix Sky Garden, so it’s pretty Chinese.”

via Janetter for Mac

Getting pretty sick of the internet startup business meme [original sense] that things “disruption” is a good thing in and of itself.

via Janetter for Mac

Trying to work out why I have Slovenian Euros in my pocket change. Did I…? No, don’t answer that.

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “Could I please have a glass of vodka with some tonic water thanks.”

via Janetter for Mac

There’s been a steady stream of people coming through for whom “going to the pub” is obviously a rare and exotic experience. Amusing.

via Janetter for Mac

@alexkidman @lukehopewell @jesschandra @Bruff @Danny_Allen Oh. That wasn’t the syllable I was having trouble with. Think hard-G vs soft-G…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to alexkidman

Oh the first, @grantshow? The overall instruction in a cookbook, “Shut up and eat it, you’ve had worse things in your mouth.”

via Janetter for Mac

It’s true, @CosmicRami, it must indeed be ice from Thai icebergs. Thanks for clearing that up.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to CosmicRami

RT @grantshow: “Salt the pasta until it tastes like tears” [That, right there, is the second-best recipe instruction I’ve ever seen.]

via Janetter for Mac

What the fuck is Thai about this, exactly? A 50% chance of a slice of lime? instagr.am/p/TxEgeMiFqd/

Beaker Marijuana classified as a “performance enhancing drug” in MMA. What, like a black belt in Twinkies & hot pockets yields an advantage?!

So Enmore LPO still can’t find a parcel for me, despite @DowntownNewtown’s sighting of one. Curious.

via Plume for Android

There is a “wealth management” “business” in Newtown. It is yellow, and several kinds of wrong.

via Plume for Android

There is a man on this train who thinks he can whistle. He cannot.

via Plume for Android

@sexenheimer Sorry, I have no idea what you’re talking about.

via Plume for Android in reply to sexenheimer

@andrew_hedge People overrate the importance of the room. Curtains, a towel on the desk to absorb reflections, and work close to the mix.

via Plume for Android in reply to egadheg

Wolli Creek is a bit of a hole, isn’t it.

via Plume for Android

@jplonie Yeah. The list. I’ve been on the list for years. Yawn.

via Plume for Android in reply to jplonie

Mobile, finally: Walk to Hurstville Central; bank; train to Newtown; errand to Enmore; train to Central; more errands; a beer, potentially.

via Janetter for Mac

@andrew_hedge Oh that’s why people are mentioning that radio spot today. Yes, from SFO by Skype. Zoom H4n as mic. stilgherrian.com/conversations/…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to egadheg

Agreed, @JB_AU @benpobjie, the beach in autumn or winter can be wonderful. Two different aspects you describe there, of course.

via Janetter for Mac

Right, I seem almost ready to set off on all these errands.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh, that beach comment seems to have struck a chord. Yes, goodness me, we don’t all embody all of our national stereotypes.

via Janetter for Mac

I am an Australian, and I do not find the beach a pleasant place to be in summer whatsoever. There. I said it.

via Janetter for Mac

@markatextor Oops, I buggered up your handle in the first of those two tweets. It’s here. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

via Janetter for Mac

@LyndsayFarlow @TheLawMap @markatextor … and that could well be because less-technical users are less able to protect themselves.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to LyndsayFarlow

@LyndsayFarlow @TheLawMap @MarkTextor Indeed, so complaints are rising only a little more quickly than the social networks’ user base…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to LyndsayFarlow

@LyndsayFarlow @TheLawMap And the user bases of Facebook and Twitter have increase what percentage in that time? Per capita, please.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to LyndsayFarlow

Making an unpleasant discovery.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @lichtstrom_: “there are some times when having an anal breathing tube would be a good idea” @paulcarr at nsfwcorp.com

@stufromoz @ZacharyQuinto I kinda prefer my goats to have a little more life in them, a little more spirit.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to stufromoz

@AnnabelAstbury That was an interesting radio program, and kinda fun to be participating from San Francisco. stilgherrian.com/conversations/…

Fri plan, v2: Washing and tidying; brunch; errands in Enmore and Sydney CBD; shopping; quiet drink; evening with Full Moon, details TBA.

via Janetter for Mac

Actually, I think I can rearrange that plan a bit to reduce the to-and-for of travelling. Let’s see.

via Janetter for Mac

Fri plan: Tidying; local errands; washing; errands in Enmore and Sydney CBD, late lunch en route; evening with Full Moon, details TBA.

@MetaMikeBiggs To judge by the state of web and app security, knowing how to code is an optional extra on the modern internet.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MetaMikeBiggs

GordyPls Twitter suggests I follow the Yellow Pages and Benjamin Law. I shall follow neither and for the same reasons.

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 9:18 AM, Dec 28th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

@MetaMikeBiggs Sure. I mean, I can’t see any legal or ethical issues there.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MetaMikeBiggs

@stevemcilhatton @Prohairetic @R_Chirgwin I am warming to your proposal. May I buy you a drink?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to stevemcilhatton

Follow Alain de Botton you reckon, Twitter? Yeah, no I’m not that fuckin’ drunk.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @j_hutch: what exactly makes it leftover gin? [Losing consciousness.]

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Seule l’immensité de l’océan peuvent contenir leur stupidité.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Seuls les profondeurs de la mer peuvent-ils vraiment être exilé.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. J’envisage la possibilité de pousser chacun d’entre eux dans la mer. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Right. I have a bazillion things to do today, and it’s going to be hot and annoying. I’d better get this planned out. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac

Whoever it was that said leftover gin isn’t a proper breakfast was just so wrong.

via Janetter for Mac

@RealNickHodge Yeah you should probably stop that before I turn violent. Or get turned on.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RealNickHodge

RT @SBSNews: Australian arrested on US insider trading bit.ly/UoV6Km [But was he on a yacht? No? Then why are you covering it?]

via Janetter for Mac

thewetmale Hahaha no way. GTFO. RT @ellymc: “Is there a risk the Sydney to Hobart will become an exclusive club?” HAHAHAHAHA

@jdub It’s a real problem when your swing dwindles.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jdub

Just as an aside, @en_gy, please don’t use the words “Clover” and “pork” in the same sentence. Not before I’ve eaten.

via Janetter for Mac

@nicchristensen Heh. “Usurp” is such an interesting word…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to nicchristensen

@nicchristensen How do you know what I expect? Don’t you mean what you expected?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to nicchristensen

@en_gy Yeah well @BreakfastNews and, in fact, ABC TV generally, need to remember that not all Australians are public servants from Glebe.

via Janetter for Mac

“Next up on @BreakfastNews, a Lithgow pensioner reads out some old railway timetables, highlighting the key changes between 1924 and 1938.”

via Janetter for Mac

I am so glad that @BreakfastNews has crossed to talk to this old bloke BECAUSE HE IS ENDLESSLY FASCINATING AND PROVIDES UNIQUE INSIGHTS.

via Janetter for Mac

“That sounds like a very concerning thing” is, I believe, code for “I understood none of that whatsoever.”

via Janetter for Mac

If I understand these visuals on @BreakfastNews correctly, the crews of all Sydney to Hobart yachts are to be interned on Nauru.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @en_gy: Has the boat thing finished yet? [No. @BreakfastNews is still to do ritual onanism with champagne bottles. And @lukehopewell. ]

via Janetter for Mac

I think @jayrayner1 has learned a valuable lesson today. We should all take note, and avoid making the same mistake.

via Janetter for Mac

@lukehopewell And when you try to imagine that sound, does my current avatar help or hinder?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

@lukehopewell To be honest, you’re not missing that much visually. But it’s the sound, Luke, the sound!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

@lukehopewell Have you ever watched stray dogs having sex? I mean REALLY watched?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

Over summer, @BreakfastNews and @SBSNews could just be replaced with a loop of YouTube videos of stray dogs having sex. Would anyone notice?

via Janetter for Mac

You know, @BreakfastNews @SBSNews, at least those at the court of Louis XVI knew they were sycophants to the overly-rich. Way to go.

via Janetter for Mac

@SBSNews You too? ls there some drug they slip you in journalism school that makes you hallucinate people giving a shit about that race?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SBSNews

My theory, @paulwallbank, is that the holiday AFR exists so that rich people have something to start the BBQ with.

“Boasting about how many apps are in your app store is like boasting about how many lice are on your camel.” Discuss.

via Janetter for Mac

@lukehopewell @BreakfastNews And insufficiently shouty. There’s something wrong with you.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

@lukehopewell WHY WON’T YOU BE TALKING TO @BreakfastNews ABOUT THE RACE BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY IT RELATES TO EVERY AUSTRALIAN EVERYWHERE TRAITOR.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

lukehopewell I’ll be on @BreakfastNews at 715am AEST to talk ransomware and health record privacy. How can you know your data is safe? ABC1/ABC News 24

via Tweetbot for iOS (retweeted on 7:05 AM, Dec 28th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

AM I WATCHING THE RACE, @BreakfastNews? OF COURSE NOT. WHY WOULD I WATCH A BUNCH OF OBNOXIOUSLY INSECURE SELF-CENTRED MEN MASTURBATE AT SEA?

via Janetter for Mac

@jonathonio Perhaps the word you’re looking for is “constipation”?
