There shall be cheese. And drunken fig jam.

Seconds before the race started, one betting agency narrowed Origin Cronk to $1.50, another opened to $2.00. Do we have robots?

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Meanwhile in harness racing, Hobart race 6, Origin Cronk is at $1.90.

Some pubs skimp on a quiet night, but that was just spot on.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

This was excellent. Big fish fillet cooked perfectly. Chips chunky & hot. Salad fresh, crisp with a sharp dressing. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

It continually amazes me that I’m let out in public.

@SnarkyPlatypus To quote @Bobosphere re me wrt my Fox News marathons, “And do you also cut yourself?”

@SnarkyPlatypus Well they might walk in. Also, why do you wallow in that crap?

@deemadigan Surely the latter gentleman is a handy distraction from the former gentleman’s Magic Imploding Tax “Policy”?

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to deemadigan

I kinda think auto-posted tweets should be marked as such. I daresay the brigade doesn’t consider that sort of ethical disclosure.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Oh that’s right. The Sydney Mardi Gras is on, and a whole lot of people still think it’s important. Howls of derisive laughter, Bruce.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@zackster I am easily amused. But yes, “the internet works” is something to rejoice in, in a small way.

Oh, my scheduled tweets seem to have kicked off as planned. Joy.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@monsoontrader Well I’ve just ordered fish & chips, so that might make a nice palette cleanser before a cheese platter.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to monsoontrader

I’ll post a “Tony Ate… at Eight!” each day at 0800 AEDT, repeated 2000 AEDT, until I run out, or get bored. Contributions welcome.

@SnarkyPlatypus That reminds me, I used to know a crane driver down that way. Containers just go missing sometimes…

@not_that_CK I am fine with “more satay than bar”, and it’s added to my list. I’m in Melbourne several times a year.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to not_that_CK

@SnarkyPlatypus Wrll good use of vaccine stocks then. Unless your employer got them from a bloke down at Port Botany.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@photogramel Oh this was 30 years ago! I’ll have to do some research to reconstruct it. But I will do that.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to photogramel

@SnarkyPlatypus They must be dumping them. I’m sure @DrSallyCockburn said this year’s flu vaccine was quadvalent.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@perrynfowler I didn’t see this before I tweeted, but yes, I haven’t said hello to Chloe in a while.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to perrynfowler

And now I am reminded of that wonderful fig curry an Indian grandmother neighbour taught me how to cook.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

I like the fact that the cheese platter has “drunken fig jam”. Haven’t had that for ages.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

The bar menu is quite acceptable. I might just settle in here for a while. s3-ap-southeast-2.amazonaws.com/cdn.venuescms.…

via Twitter for iPhone

Having a pint of Young & Jacksons Naked Ale, a “cloudy wheat beer”. I quite like it, despite seeing some middling reviews online.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

I suppose I should say hello to Chloe while I’m here. youngandjacksons.com.au/chloe

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, it’s the big pub diagonally opposite Federation Square, opposite Flinders St station.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

For the next time I’m here on a weekend, I did see a place at Southbank that has $10 Bloody Mary’s from 1000 Saturday and Sunday.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

I’m going to have a quick pint at the Young & Jackson while I try to decide.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

OK, folks, here I go..

via TweetDeck

@nnwakelam Oh I’m overwhelmed with suggestions now, which I think is the problem. :) I’ll just walk out the door and see what happens.

via TweetDeck in reply to nnwakelam

@nnwakelam That does sound good, though I know I need a dead animal tonight.

I think I want to be where @NewtonMark is, actually. twitter.com/NewtonMark/sta…

via TweetDeck

Although that plan has the drawback that it often ends up with a belly full of gin and absinthe and a mouth full of apologies.

via TweetDeck

I think my approach will be to walk out the door and see where my feed and eager tastebuds take me.

via TweetDeck

I am really appreciating all these informed suggestions for places to eat tonight. Thanks. I hope my indecision isn’t annoying.

via TweetDeck

The menu here looks interesting too. but I’m still so stuck for a decision! twitter.com/liquidparanoia…

via TweetDeck

If Szechuan House is the one roughly across the road from Shanghai Palace then yes. Hmmm. twitter.com/max_au/status/…

via TweetDeck

There is. But I know what happens when there’s “a bajillion beers”, and I have an early start tomorrow. twitter.com/haruki_zaemon/…

via TweetDeck

Hmmm. I haven’t had Nepalese food for ages, and it’s something that might work given I’m by myself (so far). twitter.com/JustJimWillDo/…

via TweetDeck

I’ve eaten at Shanghai Village with @darrenpauli and someone else too, I think, and we lived to tell the tale. twitter.com/joneaves/statu…

via TweetDeck

Wow lots of sensible suggestions coming in now. Stand by while my little brain processes them all…

via TweetDeck

Thoughts in my head include sushi, dumplings, fish and chips, white wine, wheat beer… See what I mean? All over the place.

via TweetDeck

I note that it’s 1825 AEDT now, and Melbourne’s sunset isn’t until 2000. So maybe even somewhere along Southbank would work nicely.

via TweetDeck

Right. I’m at Southbank. I’m thinking of heading towards Chinatown, but I ‘m thoroughly undecided about what to eat.

via TweetDeck

@Xavier_Ho Heh. I have never held a driver’s license.

via TweetDeck in reply to Xavier_Ho

If you really want, I can livestream it. twitter.com/reselsnark/sta…

@Xavier_Ho It wasn’t that honest a question, actually. I know Melbourne pretty well. I just thought I’d see what’d happen if I asked.

@SnarkyPlatypus Maybe. My impression (note word) is that AFP here are better at this than, say, NSWPOL.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Police now chatting with airline staff in front of a terminal. My guess is she was refused boarding and kicked off, and they’re rebooking.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Kinda disappointed. I’ve never seen how a taser works.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

She’s calmed right down. AFP officers walk away, leaving her to it. No idea what that was all about.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

She’s calmed down a bit, and one officer has stepped aside to phone in.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Angry woman seated not too far away shouting. Two AFP officers stand nearby, listening to her tirade, one calmly telling her to settle down.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Oh what’s that kicking off over there?

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Wentworth Falls to Sydney by @TrainLinkWest and SYD-MEL by @VirginAustralia are the same. One/hour, or 4/hour at peak, and purple seats.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to developerjack

@PlaneTalking Really? I quite like the Embraer 90, but I guess they’re poor economy with fewer passengers?

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to PlaneTalking

@justdanfornow Yep, the impression I’ve got is that it’s framework to plug things into. Good start though.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to justdanfornow

Once more, I am not a hazard to aerial navigation.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@justdanfornow That’s unfortunate. Is the app set to run in the background? Also, if on wi-fi, some geolocation is dodgy.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to justdanfornow

The Welcome to Country app is iOS only at this stage, @feraldata. Free. The framework needs fleshing out with more local contributions.
