I’ve just started watching “Old School” on @abciview. It’s very good. You have until 25 July. iview.abc.net.au/programs/old-s…

Ah. It appears that this morning’s awkward intimacies with petroleum products are not yet over.

@tldr I like the internet every week when you’re using it. It feels nice.

Also, “Dizzying schedule of a foreign minister in control” is a great headline. smh.com.au/national/dizzy…

snurb_dot_info So Bishop claims to be a competent foreign minister, but calls Ban Ki-moon “Ban Ki” as if that was his first name. ow.ly/3mYK9l

Oh. These are repeat episodes of “This Is That”. I strongly recommend that people burn @cbcradio HQ to the ground.

I’m so glad @cbcradio’s “This Is That” is back from hiatus. Simply THE best window into Canadian news and culture. cbc.ca/radio/podcasts…

@BarbaraBerkery Bah. That’s like saying we can solve Middle East conflict by turning the TV off.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BarbaraBerkery

@securityintern @myrcurial This is frighteningly efficient. Now I’ll have to listen to the last episode and catch up.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to securityintern

@NicholasFryer @DownloadABC @domknight I have no idea what those weirdos at the ABC are thinking. I just turn up and talk.

Sat plan, additional: I’ll be catching up on podcasts while doing stuff, so I’m likely to still tweet links to interesting things. Maybe.

via Janetter for Mac

Sat plan: Fix @bunjaree energy supplies (done); fry the cow; potter my way through the many loose ends, tying them up; evening TBA.

via Janetter for Mac

@juhasaarinen Fuck you. I’ve had a hot shower. And Vine was nowhere near long enough.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

@domknight @NicholasFryer @DownloadABC Agreed. Posture really does make a difference. I noticed that the first two standing shows I did.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to domknight

Oh dear God, I really need that shower now.

via Janetter for Mac

Right. Time to do the uncomfortable thing with 65kg of oil products, a copper pipe, and an 8-inch shifting spanner. Then I’ll have a shower.

via Janetter for Mac

@noblemonkey @zdnetaustralia Thank you. I do try to cut through the bullshit. We get exposed to rather a lot of it.

@bunjaree Thank you. I’ll have another coffee before I tackle Stage 2 of The Morning of Petrochemicals.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bunjaree

@bunjaree My next question, though, is “Where’s the 8-inch shifter?”

@mattjay @gattaca @myrcurial @ironfog @wintr Also I shouldn’t be picky, my own podcasts have been a bit, erm, erratic of late.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mattjay

@bunjaree No problem. A minor irritation, now dealt with. The guests will never feel a thing.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bunjaree

@mattjay @gattaca @myrcurial @ironfog @wintr It’s all good. I get that you guys have all been busy with your day jobs.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mattjay

@R_Chirgwin That antechinus has taken up residence in the saucepan cupboard. He [?] is being quite territorial about it. Won’t be budged.

via Janetter for Mac

@gattaca Oh. Words and stuff, yeah? That’s pretty cool.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to gattaca

@gattaca @myrcurial @ironfog @mattjay @wintr Good. But the correlation seems to be the more people you have the fewer podcasts happen. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to gattaca

@WaltSecordMLC @KKeneally Or people could just, y’know, drive within the speed limit like they’re goddam mean to. No sympathy.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to WaltSecordMLC

Mission accomplished, @bunjaree. The battery had dipped below 43V when I started the mission, but we made it back in time.

via Janetter for Mac

Sat plan, early draft: Ensure adequate energy supplies for @bunjaree; unfreeze myself; remainder TBA, though there’s lots to be done.

via Janetter for Mac

Slowly preparing myself for an annoying errand, which by its very nature must be performed in the dark and cold. I am most unhappy.

It’s a big happy birthday to Josiah Wedgwood, campaigner against slavery and occasional dabbler in matters of clay, born 12 July 1730.

via Janetter for Mac

Saturday. There is no reason for any of this. No purpose. No point at all. Yet here you are. You must suffer. And you will. Saturday.
