OK I’ll leave you lot to solve the entire question of imperial ambitions and trade relations in South-East Asia. I need to get some sleep.

I think I’m going to regret pretty much everything today.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh yes. But add to that the fact that we’re dealing with Blue Mountains locals here. It’s all very confusing.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @JustJimWillDo Don’t gripe. It stopped those commie nukes for decades.

@JustJimWillDo @SnarkyPlatypus I only knew NATO Standard as a coffee, but yeah it makes sense as tea too.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to JustJimWillDo

@SnarkyPlatypus Well this makes sense in the sense that it doesn’t make sense. But yeah it does feel more Malaysian..twitter.com/i/web/status/8…0f

@JustJimWillDo @SnarkyPlatypus I’m not sure our young friend knows what NATO Standard is.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to JustJimWillDo

I think there was a whole bunch of Chinese-Malay bullshit going on there. “Canton Palace” it most certainly isn’t.

@SnarkyPlatypus We agreed that if they made this stuff properly they’d kill people.

@SnarkyPlatypus I’ve bailed before the question arose, but I’ve now met the chef who told me that in future I should tell him.

@SnarkyPlatypus HAHAHAHAHA I’ve just realised I can’t see any chopsticks anywhere! twitter.com/jplonie/status…

Omfg some boomers just stopped the waiter serving a sizzling dish fresh from the kitchen to ask for more water.

My apologies to my Thai friends but I have been forced to use strong language.

@SnarkyPlatypus Well, Toto, we ain’t in Thaitown any more…

@SnarkyPlatypus Well that’s the wrong colour for starters. I have demanded more chilli. pic.twitter.com/0n4dZVGktt

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh yeah I keep forgetting that. So the Thai tom yum fried rice I’ve just ordered is going to piss me off isn’t it.

@SnarkyPlatypus Think of it as a version of Sea Change mixed with a few lame out takes from Rake.

But my only other option would have been to go to an entirely different village. Goddam villages.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

I have been forced to go to the local alleged Chinese restaurant. It’s just a bit too eclectic to be trusted.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Not even for local people tonight. The pub kitchen is closed and the publican allowed me one large glass of wine. twitter.com/twiddlekins/st…

@LovelyCorrine Very few people do. It’s a fascinating story, full of chapters that I hope are never forgotten.

@SadHackedJacs @SnarkyPlatypus We are on the same page, except that for me staying at home doesn’t end well.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SadHackedJacs

@SadHackedJacs @SnarkyPlatypus Depends where you go and what you choose to see.

@SnarkyPlatypus …though it’s also fair to say there’s an over-representation of Queensland farm boys. Not sure that’ll ever change.

Australian Federal Police officers have patrolled the Green Line in Cyprus, between Greeks and Turks, unarmed, for more than 50 years.

@michaelneale Mind you, I’m biased, for personal reasons.

@michaelneale Isn’t it just. I’ve already sent a thank-you to @cowanify.

Yeah look I tweeted this earlier but you might have been busy. Read it now, please. Not everyone can survive this. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

I think I might head up the hill so that when the inevitable happens I’m 50km closer to home.

By the way, did everyone remember that today was a very special day? It’s the 30th birthday of PowerPoint.

I am pleased, obviously, to see so many loud-mouthed cunts telling others how they should be thinking about Anzac Day. I love you all.

@SnarkyPlatypus Analytical thinking is in short supply. I weep.

That said, “Ride On Time” is slightly surreal right now. youtu.be/M0quXl_od3g

This is one of those curious days when the Red Cow is actually the better choice.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@jeamland Yes, so you let them slowly work it out for themselves, which ups the ego and the paranoia. Erm, or so I would imagine.

@jeamland Next time I might wear an earpiece mic to give them something to think about.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to jeamland

@michaelneale When a publican decides it’s going to get a bit rowdy, it saves having to deal with broken glass. Also, duty of care I guess.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to michaelneale

@JustJimWillDo I think people have learned not to bother asking me about confusion.

1. Plastic “glasses” for the beer. 2. Already someone’s assumed I’m a cop.

At this stage I plan to not get rat-arsed drunk today. We’ll see how that goes.
