@timpoliti He would’ve gotten around to it eventually.

@leslienassar @jeamland This may well fit with my plans, but I’ll figure it out tomorrow.

via TweetDeck in reply to leslienassar

@leslienassar @jeamland I am in the Sydney on the Monday, because I have some cybers in the morning.

via TweetDeck in reply to leslienassar

@jeamland I believe that term was used, yes.

@jeamland I once bought jellybeans from a chemist too, but it was at a party.

@grum @erstkate Look, I don’t know, I just saw things on Twitter.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to grum

Um, well that’s the second weirdest thing I’ve done on a train…

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Well that’s certainly cleared the sinuses.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, but only for about three more minutes.

Oh dear God this chef knows how I like my tub waan this is going to kill me.

I have tub waan and you can all fuck off.

@wine_o_phile Scroll back for a link. It was Utah.

Now there’s a group of guys at a table behind me workshopping a business continuity training exercise for a call centre. They are clueless.

via TweetDeck

I think I’d probably better calm down now.

If it’s not kangaroos in this country, it’s puppies. twitter.com/duckbytheoboe/…

via TweetDeck

Oh this next podcast is going to be sooooo bitter and bile-drenched…

via TweetDeck

Yes, this is the story. Utah is a country, right? Thanks, @djackmanson. twitter.com/djackmanson/st…

Oh well, it’s 1645, and the kitchen re-open at 1700. I might as well have an early dinner and hey a non-fast train.

Oh Christ, this will be what happens, right? twitter.com/paulbam3/statu…

One country recently decided to literally give homes to homeless people.. Which was that? And how is it going? Do any of you have internet?

via TweetDeck

The barmaid is trying to tempt me with free oysters, but they’re not until 1730.

via TweetDeck

Do you know what solves homelessness? Giving people a home to live in! THE CLUE IS IN THE WORD, YOU FUCKING MORONS.

via TweetDeck

All these arsehat ideas to “solve homelessness” with apps and disposable cardboard shelters in the work of demented people.

via TweetDeck

Oh good one, @TurnbullMalcolm, you’ve given him an app. I’m sure that’s exactly what he needs in his life right now. twitter.com/rpy/status/692…

@ClintonDucas It’s part of my scriptwriting process for the next episode.

Printer toner is carcinogenic, people!

via TweetDeck

And no, I don’t think that’s judgemental.

via TweetDeck

I’m doing research, in case you’re wondering.

via TweetDeck

Yeah mate, I can see what’s running on that computer screen in your selfie, and I’m not having sex with first-level support.

via TweetDeck

@rwerkh Well, in an appropriate place. These things aren’t written in stone.

I should probably decide which train I’m catching before knock-off beers turn into a 3am slur of “I fuckin’ love you maaaate!” and collapse.

via TweetDeck

@PointZeroOne Pretty much. It’s one of of those “it’s all relative” things.

via TweetDeck in reply to PointZeroOne

@PointZeroOne Oh I know for a fact that I am WAY off being the holder of that title.

via TweetDeck in reply to PointZeroOne

@SnarkyPlatypus If you want to go down the rabbit-hole of sociolinguistics, well, you’ll be down there a long, long time.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Sociolects have an important group bonding and group identity function. The first night of Big Brother sees one form FAST.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

So, you know how there are some weeks when you sink that first beer on a Friday afternoon and think, THIS is proof that there is an God?

via TweetDeck

@nancycato1 Wait, what? “Afraid”? Um, no. You’ll have to do better than that.

via TweetDeck in reply to nancycato1

Unrelated to the previous, God I love* it when inexplicable weird shit happens on my computer or phone.

via TweetDeck

@nancycato1 Well, I’m not dead yet, so I’m calling that a win. Yourself?

via TweetDeck in reply to nancycato1

@nancycato1 Well, obviously I am only speaking about this one narrow thing. Other areas of my life may support a different conclusion.

@einspruch Would the slaughtered rooster blood have affected this?

And if the trust question happens every time, then that’s a Good Thing in my view.

OK, the consensus seems to support the theory that my experience is normal. Thanks everyone.

@einspruch That’s what I’d thought, but my gut feeling is that I’m seeing it more frequently than that.

@pjwissam Ah, well that possibly explains is then.

via TweetDeck in reply to pjwissam

So when plugging an iPhone into a MacBook Pro via USB, how often should it ask “Do you trust this computer?”

via TweetDeck

@macgibbon Agreed 100%. Like smarter people before me, I’ve been banging on about the human factor for years.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to macgibbon

Oh. Apparently most of that scenario was only happening in my head. And the rain has slowed. Sloping off to get a train to the CBD.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@jonoabroad Kings Cross is drenched. Or should that be douched?

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to jonoabroad

Yeah, the lightning strikes are pretty impressive. twitter.com/R_Chirgwin/sta…

via Tweetbot for iΟS

I am stranded in Kings Cross with nothing but money, drugs, hookers, and a wet t-shirt! Send help! Wait. No, don’t.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Fact 1: That didn’t take long at all. We’re back on air. Fact 2: Jesus Christ it’s the End Times!

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Woolloomooloo. There will now be a radio silence of 90 minutes.

Changing trains at Central, and so far nobody has had to be punched in the face.

@macgibbon I should have written it more bluntly, but a massive cyber militia could wreak havoc on your great human firewall.

via TweetDeck in reply to macgibbon

@macgibbon Is that the polite way of saying “wacky”? :)

via TweetDeck in reply to macgibbon

@cafuego I don’t mind Beazley, but that possibly that I found him a pleasant human being personally.

via TweetDeck in reply to cafuego

Still, when AU banned gay marriage, the US sent a gay couple to Canberra. I can only assume that Hockey is our return troll.

via TweetDeck

Australia has such strong operational links with the US at every level that our Washington post is pretty much an ornamental teapot.

via TweetDeck

Remember, the US values the AU-US diplomatic link SO highly they leave their Canberra post vacant for six months at a time. Half a year.

via TweetDeck

There’s going to be rather a lot about that man in Sunday’s podcast.

via TweetDeck

Crime: Shittest Treasurer in living memory. Punishment: Endless cocktail parties and a permanently punchable face. twitter.com/JoeHockey/stat…

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus I can only assume this is the result of some pre-election promise.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, they’re finally making the rail network compliant with disabled access laws that were compulsory 20 years ago.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@expectproblems I’m going to miss you when you get recalled to your home planet.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to expectproblems

@SnarkyPlatypus Three elevators and, I think, a new bridge.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@expectproblems Ooooh! I might pop into the train toilet for a quiet wank.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to expectproblems

@perrynfowler Oh I’ll probably rant about it in my next podcast, but the to;dr is

Ah, Boomers! They can simultaneously whinge that there isn’t an elevator and that you can’t change any trees ever. Fuckin’ arsehats.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@TrainLinkWest There’s still some seating by the station building, but it’s often not enough, and there’s so many ancient whiney boomers.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@TrainLinkWest Would you be so kind to tell someone that being able to sit down while waiting would be a treat? twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

I’m wearing underpants now.

via TweetDeck

Is it wrong to be thinking about Joe Hockey under the shower? Because if it is, I don’t want to be right.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin Also, I did see what you did there.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin I am currently tweeting at you totally naked. True story.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

As an aside, I find the pace of days like this amusing. On-the-clock to ensure making the train, then 1h 50m of relaxed-paced journey.

via TweetDeck

Right. Enough of this frivolity. The kangaroo has been… dealt with. Time for two quick plugs, then shower, shave, and find underpants.

via TweetDeck

@gattaca @myrcurial I’ll wait until next week’s episode to see how you manage to escape.

via TweetDeck in reply to gattaca

Wait. I said KANGAROO on the internet, and that’s now a terrorisms keyword. There’s another damn watch list I’ve been added to.

via TweetDeck

@myrcurial Oh I hear you’re having fun. But surely it’s only a matter of time before the RCMP figure out what you really did with @gattaca.

via TweetDeck in reply to myrcurial

@myrcurial I’m already 1,5 podcasts behind the pace, by the way. I’m not sure I’m coping with this “more than two a year” pace.

via TweetDeck in reply to myrcurial

@myrcurial All I know is that you should never use an IP address that’s divisible by 23.

via TweetDeck in reply to myrcurial

Doing unspeakable things with a kangaroo and electrical apparatus.

via TweetDeck

@myrcurial That’a right. Or it’s YESTERDAY where you are, because the Earth is hollow.

I’m a bit out of touch with current etiquette. Are meetings with accountants pants-on or pants-off?

via TweetDeck

Fri plan, redraft: 1024 train to Sydney; comms en route; 1230 accountant; lunch; haircut; gin; return train and thunderstorms.

via TweetDeck

Yes, it can be done. Provided the house remains looking like there’s been a break-in, and I forego my haircut until the afternoon.

via TweetDeck

There shall now commence a brief period of relatively quick activity to determine the feasibility of a salvage operation.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

So here’s the thing. My alarm was set for 0600, and yet it’s only just now that I find myself to be awake. Bother.

Friday. But it won’t end there, mark my words. Friday.
