@kcarruthers @SnarkyPlatypus Oh I’m gutting these paragraphs like fresh garfish!

Constructing paragraphs. Sharper, sturdier paragraphs.

@jeffsonstein Yes, there’s a seemingly endless series of stories. I do find it odd that I’m writing so much about it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeffsonstein

Hmmm… Despite the hour, I suspect I may end up doing some writing.

@decryption @kjmci Perhaps, but with so many people writing about the election I doubt that I said anything new.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to decryption

@kjmci Why thank you. They won’t all be politics. But to be honest I’m surprised people likes that one, I thought we had politics overload.

@Wendy_Bacon @Asher_Wolf I’ve never thought of “tidiness” as a KPI for democracy.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Wendy_Bacon

Apparently mainstream media hasn’t quite caught up with the concept of a pluralist society. Poor petals, having to deal with nuance.

@petstarr @theprojecttv Well, yeah, some people have to turn their addiction into a fashion statement. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to petstarr

@petstarr @theprojecttv Oh, the usual proviso for something being “a thing”: seen in more than one of a small set of inner suburbs.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to petstarr

@petstarr There was a good story on @theprojecttv a few weeks back about nicotine vaporisers now being a thing.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to petstarr

@petstarr Not that “bizarre” a pipe, it’s just a moderately ornamented nicotine vaporiser.

Upon reflection, it would’ve been more interesting if that drunken football team had set fire to the pool tables.
