The wine has been unsatisfying.

@NewtonMark I could send you a couple of, erm, educational and entertaining videos?

RT @NewtonMark: Imagine how much money you could make if you sold a My Little Pony toy merged with a Fleshlight. [You’re way late.]

@NewtonMark I suspect someone doesn’t quite understand what constitutes a written contract.

Wow. So Ebola hits, and now the Sydneigh 2014 brony conference got cancelled. sydneigh.com.au Where’s the humanitarian mission, Tony?

@kcarruthers @ben_hr Yeah there’s a rather large AMF bowling venue, it seems. That gives me something to talk about.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kcarruthers

True, @ben_hr @kcarruthers, Rooty Hill RSL is indeed enormous, and I haven’t been there before. So I guess it’s compulsory.

via Janetter for Mac

There’s the Lone Pine Tavern and the Imperial Hotel, as well as several Chinese restaurants. Rooty Hill has everything.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @kcarruthers: Isn’t there an Islamic high school there? [No, next door in Mt Druitt, it says here. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_I…]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kcarruthers

A slightly earlier tweet seems to be missing the word “recording” in relation to Rooty Hill. Did you notice?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @kcarruthers: The RSL of course. [Sure, but hasn’t the Rooty Hill RSL become a cliché?]

humphriesmark The team from @TheRoastTV sacrificed their public holiday to make you a fresh episode today. It would be polite to watch it. 7:30pm, @ABC2.

On Wednesday I’m segments at Rooty Hill, Sydney, for the following ep of “The 9pm Edict”. Where should I visit in Rooty Hill? Highlights?

via Janetter for Mac

It is extremely likely that there will be a new episode of “The 9pm Edict” podcast tomorrow, that is Tuesday, night.

@riskybusiness Maybe just ‘cos the cybers are in the news so much these days? I’d suggest it was your charm and good looks, but y’know…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to riskybusiness

@kcarruthers Yes, I’ll be awarding @Todd__Kincannon an elephant stamp in tomorrow’s episode of “The 9pm Edict”. How could I not?

Ah yes, as @BYoungBris has reminded me, Brisbane’s peasants may down tools and fuck off out of the way of the important people.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @BYoungBris Fri of g20 (when leaders arrive) is a public hol in Bris. Yes there’ll be stacks of ppl out watching, but not like a weekday.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BYoungBris

Wait. “We did it on a public holiday … to replicate the look and feel of the city when these events are going to be taking place.”

via Janetter for Mac

Thing is, today’s a public holiday in Brisbane. CBD streets were nearly empty. The “rehearsal” doesn’t reflect the real G20 conditions. Hah.

via Janetter for Mac

“Our cars and motorcycle escorts met a plane at the airport and drove into the city. We’re a grown-up city now,” boasts Brisbane.

via Janetter for Mac

All today’s “G20 motorcade rehearsal” proves is that Brisbane is a pissy backwater that’s never needed one until now. abc.net.au/news/2014-10-0…

@scottcarson1957 I reckon he would. He seems to have a fairly… comprehensive view on the use of extermination.

Todd__Kincannon We should put Wendy Davis’ vagina in charge of the Ebola outbreak. It will kill all of them without mercy and go to Nordstrom’s afterwards.

@markc @venessapaech This whole “disrupt” thing is complete wank. Self-promoting arsehats wanting to make their “change” sound more special.

@dahowlett Oh very much agreed. There was another word I was going to use too, but it’s a bit early in the day here.

venessapaech Pet peeve: A thing has to actually disrupt something before you can call it disruptive. Annointing yourself disruptive is meaningless.

Causing grindingly slow chaos through the indirect misuse of semaphores, or something.

RT @sylmobile: The best succession plan for a family business is run it into the ground. [Well that’s the traditional way, yes.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sylmobile

The chap on @RNBreakfast suggests there might be a glut of these businesses coming onto the market soon. So they’re screwed.

via Janetter for Mac

Just heard on @RNBreakfast that 81% of Baby Boomer-run family businesses in Australia have yet to work out a succession plan. Idiots.
