RT @R_Chirgwin: “Regret” is too tame a word. Try “will I be overwhelmingly repulsed and need a tabasco emetic?” and you’re close. [I see.]

via Janetter for Mac

If I ask why people are talking about the Prime Minister’s sex life, will I regret it?

@jdub @ClaireRPorter I will admit that I have never been a fan of the random decorative umlaut. But each to their own.

So that’s four posts with audio from recent radio spots, and two Weekly Wraps, for a total of six. It’s a shame there’s no wine.

Happy Mondayised Additional Day (MAD) Holiday, Australia! HT @juhasaarinen.

via Janetter for Mac

@juhasaarinen @glengyron Thank you. I now dub that the MAD doctrine, for “Monday Additional Day”. MAD Holiday.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

@llament @glengyron @juhasaarinen Exactly that. It can be very annoying some years.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to llament

@juhasaarinen @glengyron Sensible logic anywhere else in the world, perhaps, but if a holiday is on Sat or Sun then there’s an extra on Mon.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

Indeed, @glengyron, ah the outcry when they tried to take away our “right” to another holiday when a holiday was on a weekend! @juhasaarinen

via Janetter for Mac

RT @juhasaarinen: Hmm… is Australia at work today? [In general, no. It’s a public holiday.]
