@Hippopeteamus Actually he doesn’t say it would have helped. He deliberately [?] doesn’t join the dots. It’s just allusion.

@JustJimWillDo That’s not how I remember it, but I am beyond caring now.

Me at @zdnetaustralia today: “Brandis takes the data-retention debate beyond logic” zdnet.com/article/brandi…

via Janetter for Mac

@AlisterAir @HughRundle @zdnetaustralia I suspect it’s just falling for a logical fallacy or something. I’m too tired to think now though.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AlisterAir

I am being taken to a very special place by @danger5tv.

via Janetter for Mac

Watching last night’s @danger5tv again is dangerous. It doesn’t clarify. Rather, there’s even more confusing detail. sbs.com.au/ondemand/video…

@SnarkyPlatypus Something else for you to track down is “Black Mirror | White Christmas”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @danger5tv Well, you’ll just have to make do with what you can find in the bathroom or under the sink.

@sylmobile @johnb78 Oh Christ, that’s right. And that was nearly a month ago. I need to fix that.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sylmobile

@martinmiles Yes. Alas, “excrete” was lost in the editing today.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to martinmiles

@SnarkyPlatypus For series 2 of @danger5tv, vast quantities of cocaine seems to be the correct procedure.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes. I guess I will. I think I will also re-watch last night’s @danger5tv to see if it makes any more sense.

Heh. I won’t be fitting in before 1800 AEDT. The joys of live radio. Good first day back, though, @NewsTalk2UE. Give ‘em hell!

via Janetter for Mac

I should have arranged cider or something.

via Janetter for Mac

OK, the @NewsTalk2UE radio spot is now at around 1745 AEDT, so in about 10 minutes.

@Rob_Stott Agreed. And I shall use it in a sentence today.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Rob_Stott

OK, thanks everyone, I think it’s “excrete” for this context. No more suggestions needed.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @hughstephens: disgorge? disembogue? protuberate? [I’m thinking that’s a great band name right there…]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hughstephens

RT @futureidentity: Prolapse? [Ouch! Um, I’ll remember that for another use, thanks, but no it’s looking like ‘excrete” might be the go.]

RT @PSyvret: Not sure of your context, but “squelch” might work, and ticks the onomatopoeia box. [Oh! Yes, excellent sound. Hmmm.]

RT @Epigrammist: spew. [A good word, but the end product is more… scattered than I’m envisaging. Thanks, but not quite right today.]

So I need a verb like “extrude”, to squeeze out a new thing, but one that sounds more sloppy, juicy, gross. Suggestions?
