@juhasaarinen @saldaynight Yet not much earlier than I’m usually up. If I can’t get to sleep then, yes, I’ll have a coffee and sally forth.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

… and that means that I’ll be having an early night, if that’s possible. Light supper, send through some program notes, attempt sleep.

@paulwallbank Oh thank you. I can use that. That feeds straight into the point I’m trying to make. I record tomorrow.

@will_ock Just fine. Some time I’ll have to explain IRONY and the linguistic use/mention distinction, I think it’s called.

Wouldn’t it be a better world if every time someone described something as “awesome” a clown dressed as a nun punched them in the face.

@franksting @mpesce Yes, that phrase kicks about in the segment as currently being scripted.

@ChrissieM One does grow accustomed to the Shiny Purpletrain. It’s like being inside an inside-out eggplant. @SenatorLudlam would cry.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ChrissieM

@mpesce No, not that. I have a go mainly at “sharing economy” BS, but the gig economy will doubtless cop a serve too.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

@timfdavis Well thank you for your support, much appreciated.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to timfdavis

@mpesce You are going to hate one segment in the next “The 9pm Edict”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

@TheFailedProjek Lucky you. I can’t sleep on plane, trains and too much coffee.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TheFailedProjek

Purpletrain is now skipping many Blue Mountains stations, which is precisely why I chose this particular Purpletrain.

@SnarkyPlatypus You will appreciate a segment in the next “The 9pm Edict”.
