So, a quick trip to Thaitown for a beer and an early dinner turned into sanook maak and dinner finally at 2300. I guess that’s a win.

The waiter has just called my bluff re speaking Thai and I am so fucked.

“Nham tok moo ped ped maak krub,” I said, “and I know what I’m ordering.” The waiter smiled widely. I suspect this supper will kill me.

“Tony Ate… at Eight” is a tribute to Abbott’s love of things in his mouth, and to the things he fears. 0800 AEST, repeated 2000 AEST.

For those who even care about such things, I posted the Weekly Wrap earlier today. There are cybers in it. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

@garystark @developerjack Well, yes, but you’re not on until 2100, so a certain pace-yourself process is called for.

@sebchan I don’t know about “classic” though. It’s all over the place. Can’t seem to decide what it wants to be.

I might just have a quiet drink here before heading into Thaitown for a, erm, quiet drink. And tub waan. Or larb ped. Or something.

@NuclearAnthro @dobes I tried to tell him this, but there’s only so much you can do when someone approves half your income.

via TweetDeck in reply to NuclearAnthro

I’m kind of annoyed now, because I happen to think that garden orb-weavers are beautiful spiders.

@P_B_Wee Hah! Normally I am just fine with spiders, but this was a sudden unexpected encounter.

Also, I am sad to report that she is no more, because primal instincts kicked in and I have destroyed everything within a 3km radius.
