@leslienassar These images of Tony With Meat are a wonderfully rich rabbit hole.

@FlyOpineMonkey It’s OK, I scheduled it in @TweetDeck this morning. As you’ll have seen.

Well I’ve just been chatting with Chris the barman while drinking an acceptable Sauvignon Blanc, but now I sloth in my room.

“Tony Ate… at Eight!” is a tribute to Abbott’s love of things in his mouth. 0800 AEDT, repeated 2000 AEDT, until I run out, or get bored.

I think I might just have a quiet meal somewhere near here and then sloth at the hotel and then have an early night.

I really do like these Embraer 90 and 190 short-haul jets. I hope @VirginAustralia keeps a few of them around just for me.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Transmitters off, see you in Canberra.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Still, this means the flight time is under 30 minutes.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

I just wished we had a turboprop rather than a jet, so we’d be flying lower.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

We’ll be tracking down the coast to Wollongong before heading inland to Canberra, so glad I’m in a starboard seat. Beautiful flying weather.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

They’ve just called for a John Lindsay. Are you meant to be on this flight, @bigjsl?

via Tweetbot for iΟS

The view from seat 5F, for my sins. instagram.com/p/BCo2mCgCFhU/

Yes, we now have an Embraer 90. Or an Embraer 190, if the safety card is to be trusted.

I see that Tony Abbott has issued his press release again.

Look, I’m sure there’s some sort of point to Peter Costello, and one day we might actually figure out what it is.

I’m glad Peter Costello is bringing his visionary brilliance to his new job as chair of Channel Nine. The network will blossom anew! Hurrah!

@BernardKeane Yes, I see your point. Sorry to have bothered you with such shoddy logic on my part.

@jeffsonstein For reasons, one of which displeases me, RAN is damn good at boarding parties. (The other reason, Persian Gulf work, is 👍.)

@WGoodings Man, ain’t memory a tricky bugger! BTW, belated congrats for getting the brekky shift. Hope @penbo is behaving himself. ;)

@WGoodings @FIVEaaBreakfast Heh. It really stuck in my mind, particularly the “WTF?” tone of your voice.

@sofranksocial @enlighten_cbr I know you mean well, thanks, but noodles are an everyday thing for me, and coloured lights are ho-hum. YMMV.

@JustJimWillDo I haven’t explored Thai food in Melbourne, since I eat so much here. I’ll ask around. The liver and blood is essential IMO.
