Thank you, CityRail, for doing the best train-juggle you can on an unavoidably chaotic evening. Ignore the solipsistic little whinge-turds.

I AM WAITING PATIENTLY.

RT @kedgie: Beer Spiders! [YES! Erm, actually, now that I think about that, no.]

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “Mate, it’s not the weather for ice cream, it’s the weather for beer.” God I love Samoans.

via Janetter for Mac

At Cronulla, they’re serving the ice cream with a little Australian flag stuck in it. Just so you remember where you are.

via Janetter for Mac

@NickDRalston Wut? 21 people out of a NSW pop’n of 7.2 million on the hottest day in record? Doesn’t sound busy to me. Did they said “busy”?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NickDRalston

In a concession to 46C heat, the pinot is served with a glass of ice, should it be needed instagr.am/p/UnJ4r2iFh3/

@shiftkey Comments coming on that when the temperature drops below 28C. So, late March.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to shiftkey

RT @TatteredRemnant: its a typo. They mean “year of the ceviche” - its all about raw snapper [Ah that makes more sense, thanks.]

via Janetter for Mac

46C at Sydney’s Observatory Hill.

via Janetter for Mac

“Half a glass of proscuitto”? Are you mad, @S7U? Fill the damn thing!

via Janetter for Mac

So, my choices. Read a jargon-filled promo document from Deloitte TMT? Or drink Campari and stare into space? Let me think about that…

via Janetter for Mac

I have a thing here from Deloitte TMT that says 2013 will be “year of the device”. Can I be arsed reading it to see what that even means?

via Janetter for Mac

@gavincostello Ah, those were prices for illustrative purposes only. Still, I think it could work as a concept.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to gavincostello

First thing heard upon arriving at Cronulla beach? A PA message: watch out for thieves. Problems? Tell the lifeguards. Not, I note, police.

Hey thanks everyone but we’ve dealt with the whole WOLO thing ages ago now and have moved on.

Passing through the thriving metropolis of Jennali.

via Plume for Android

This H-set train is bouncing all over the place between Hurstville and Sutherland, and running seemingly slow at some points.

via Plume for Android

RT @i386 [WOLO] means “its too hot. slow down and look out for warped tracks.” yfrog.com/mgoquocsj [Thanks.]

Should I change back to that other, topical, avatar?

via Plume for Android

A sign next to Erskineville station says “WOLO”. Why?

via Plume for Android

Meanwhile, from behind me, “That’s the Entertainment Centre. They have concerts there or something.” WELL SPOTTED.

The “expert” in urban planning is “explaining” Sydney to the man next to him. I can hear him clearly from the other end of the team.

While I’m waiting for my non-pie snack, I’m being told some excellent jokes.

via Plume for Android

THERE ARE NO PIES LEFT AT THE PIE SHOP.

via Plume for Android

Or should that be “snarque en route”?

via Janetter for Mac

Mobile: Walk to pie shop; bus or tram to Central; train to Cronulla; walk to a nearby pub; order lunch. There shall be snark en route.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @wolfcat: When travelling to Cronulla don’t take fashion advice from this person flickr.com/photos/neeravb… [You think I need telling this?]

via Janetter for Mac

Decided: As soon as this backup finishes, I’m heading to Central and catching the train to Cronulla.

via Janetter for Mac

I think I might go to Cronulla and have fish and chips for lunch. Let me shower and then think about that.

@oberonsghost No, it does not have a purple wrapper. I’m glad you found the thing in the purple wrapper, but it contains no glub.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to oberonsghost

Just got a media release using “bespoke”, “solutions”, “enhance customer experience” all in the first sentence. Value-for-money copywriting!

via Janetter for Mac

So @R_BurtonBradley’s date seems to be going well…

Right. So @kochie_online is recommending people break the law now? That’s an even better look! He can have all his meals in a toilet now!

via Janetter for Mac

LeenaVanD A reminder to breastfeeding mums out there: Being asked to leave, cease feeding, or cover up, is illegal. Don’t take that shit.

via Tweetbot for iOS (retweeted on 9:12 AM, Jan 18th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

Actually, @kochie_online, I’m embarrassed by your cluelessness. So from now on, can you eat your lunch in the toilet too?

Also, “Politicians generally don’t understand bullying, because they never encounter it in their own organisations” was sarcasm, folks.

I’ve just written a cranky comment in response to two of the dafter comments on yesterday’s @crikey_news piece. crikey.com.au/2013/01/17/sti…

via Janetter for Mac

Why is @joeobrien24 using NLP tricks to pre-load us with negative thoughts about Lance Armstrong? What’s his agenda?

via Janetter for Mac

Having watched that, by my arithmetic the entire population of the Logan’s Run world is about 10,000, so three times as inbred as Wodonga.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @joshgnosis: Doyle to Gillard: “How do you deal with loony people?”

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Thing is, though, breakfast radio is also prime time and sets the agenda for the day for most people.

RT @mattytee_PT: if you are in Sydney, happy hour us from 9am-12 midday at Abbotts Hotel in Waterloo! [Today’s best tweet. Will consider!]

via Janetter for Mac

It’s becoming clear to me that when it comes to early morning conversations with the Prime Minister then I should be top of the list.

thetowncrier Update: Gillard makes sure she turns lights off in the Lodge where she can. Also, the carbon tax is awesome. @RNBreakfast

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 7:47 AM, Jan 18th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

But it’s OK, @sylmobile, the ignorance is only the nation’s leading morning radio program and the Prime Minister. No-one relevant.

I wonder if @abcnews has noticed that following the web headline “Hostages killed” with “Nightmare for Boeing” might be a little crass?

@T4RD1S Oh, yes, I’d love to pop over the ditch to San Francisco today. But I could just drink at the airport and be done with it.
