@dobes @Lateline Don’t worry, I’ll be doing a couple square inches of social media tomorrow night.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

Oh, the “neocon sex kitten” thing and the “in the mood” thing are unrelated things.

via Janetter for Mac

All I’ll say for now is that if you want to know more, just Google “neocon sex kitten”. [Smirks.]

via Janetter for Mac

I shall resist the temptation to keep improvising along those lines. Though I’m in the mood…

via Janetter for Mac

You made me feel so good, made me feel myself. Now I’m alone, and you’re with somebody else. You cunt.

via Janetter for Mac

Quick as a flash, you disappeared into the night. Did I hurt you, boy? Didn’t I treat you right?

via Janetter for Mac

Touch me, touch me. I want to feel your body, your heartbeat next to mine. Touch me. Touch me now.

via Janetter for Mac

This is the night. This is the night. This is the time. We’ve got to get it right.

via Janetter for Mac

I was hunting you down, and I was the bait. When I saw you there, I didn’t mean to hesitate.

via Janetter for Mac

Full moon in the city, and the night was young. I was hungry for love. I was hungry for fun.

@jplonie @SnarkyPlatypus You are being unfair. Each of those three emails has a necessary role in the process.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jplonie

@hughstephens This was mentioned in a comment. I’ll have to find out more about these NPS guys, I guess. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Net_promo…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hughstephens

@jplonie @SnarkyPlatypus Well, no, there’s three for every presser: an alert to announce it, a press release, and a transcript.

via Janetter for Mac

It seems thar @mrjohnclarke can explain the difference in email volumes. youtube.com/watch?v=QMayFC…

via Janetter for Mac

The campaign emails I get are more about being a media person than a voter, so alerts about press conferences and transcripts etc. Even so.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus I’ve never received many Coalition releases. The Greens certainly know who I am. But Labor is hammering them out.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

By day four, the numbers of campaign emails received are: Labor 159; Coalition nil; Greens nil; ISOC-AU 1. Don’t people keep lists?

@paulwallbank @HarrisonPolites Excellent. It’ll be more like 1245 by the time I stroll across Pyrmont Bridge. I refuse to be rushed today.

via Twitter for Windows Phone in reply to paulwallbank

@HarrisonPolites Well, in which case I’ll head to Darling Harbour after Redfern, so approx 1230. @paulwallbank Who’s running the event?

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to HarrisonPolites

@HarrisonPolites Excellent, I’ll see if I can rearrange my schedule to fit. This week is being a mess.

@HarrisonPolites Oh, so you’re in Sydney until the weekend?

Apple has approved the Corrupted Nerds podcasts for the iTunes Store, so I’ll be adding those links as soon as it goes live.

@manaz_d Ah thanks, but I’m fine. Earlier I consulted this remarkable new service called “the weather forecast”.

Mobile: Walk dirt track then Railway Pde to Wentworth Falls; 0837 train to Sydney Central; train to Redfern; remainder TBA.

@pencoyd Thanks for making contact. I’ll certainly be in touch with your guys if I need anything. @blubrry @CloudFlare

@willsmore298 @petertaggart @mwyres Hah! Look, I think we need to respect our national treasures. She is unique.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to willsmore298

Thu plan: 0837 train to Sydney; write for @technologyspec en route; 1110 medico Redfern; errands Enmore, Surry Hills, North Sydney; return.

via Janetter for Mac

Well that was a good solid burst of writing. I’m almost done, and the rest can be finished on the train. Early starts are great for writing.

via Janetter for Mac

One step at a time.

In Corrupted Nerds ep3, @petercoffee says everything will end up in the cloud, and explains what that’ll mean. corruptednerds.com/pod/c00003/

via Janetter for Mac

I think I’ll re-plug a few things quickly before I settle into a burst of writing. Well, one thing. The new podcast, which I’m happy with.

via Janetter for Mac

@mattdasilva Thanks, but it’s always easy to get good photos at dawn in the forest. Nature does all the work.

I shouldn’t put people off staying at @bunjaree in winter, ‘cos we’re in the lee of a ridge that usually protects us from those winds.

via Janetter for Mac

Current temperature 0.6C, apparent -8.5C, winds gusting to 46km/h. Though that’s at Mt Boyce. Things are slightly better here.

@y011 Oh I got stupid-early as an adjective, and I love that construction. But enthusiasm can be feigned…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to y011

@y011 “Stupid”? Maybe. I dunno, I generally get up between 0500 and 0600. Old habit.

@juhasaarinen Yep, I have sunrise at 0644 AEST today, I am reliable informed.
