Okay, guys, I'm calling the week. That's a wrap. Good session.

@EveD: moving twitter yet another step closer to fifteen year old high school peer groups and "who invited whom" is never a good thing.

New theory: there is no social media concept or idea that can't be elucidated much more succinctly through a five-minute interpretive dance.

So, Today walks into a bar, and the barman says "Thank god it's you". (Get it? Right? Get it? Because today's Friday? Right?)

@nostrich - doesn't the mis-spelled "photbucket" bookmark in your toolbar drive you insane every day that you use that browser?

via twhirl in reply to nostrich

It's not "reckless driving". It's Performance Art.

All computer monitors should be issued with a large sign stuck to them that says "Just Because You Can, Doesn't Mean You Should"

It's a beautiful, sunny day in Cape Town, and I'm powering through my work, being productive.

4 out of 5 doctors prefer me.

Looking for a nicely designed personal site with an interesting layout. I looked at your blog (yes, YOU, dear reader), and it sucks.

I have acquired an Item. This is one of the many powers of "money" with which you mooches may not be familiar.

I'm more than a little displeased with @edelmuller for stealing all the good West Coast weather - having to call off my Geelbeek pilgrimage.

via twhirl

*shakes fist at cruel uncaring Fate*

via twhirl

thank you @altersage! http://is.gd/1vMZ is awesome. @rafiq could take note. (Turns out I'm a "broadcaster" and find "responders" difficult.)

In a group of 23 people, there's a 50% chance that two share a birthday - 99% chance for 57 people. Today, @robynn_b wins. Happy Birthday!

Oh good lord, is it the 19th already? Time to change underwear.

An epic tale of loss, strife, and eventual victory, with hope for the future: http://twitter.com/Discu...

I only have the phone line for DSL, and nobody knows the number. But I leave it plugged in because, you know... Maybe somebody will call?

via twhirl

Hippies, everywhere, why god why, drum circles springing up in the garden, tie-dyed laundry, herbal remedies in the bathroom, oh lordy WHY?

via twhirl

There is NOTHING left to say.

Germany should have used Milli Vanilli in *their* opening ceremony.

If you find yourself pointing out that your blog post is ironic/a joke, there may be a problem with you or your audience. Probably both.

via twhirl

Oh for crying out loud. Juliette Lewis is a Scientologist too? Must Xenu take everything good?

The best human interaction I've had all day was with the tortoiseshell cat sunning itself on the road outside the office.

via twhirl

*sigh* once again, failed simply to die quietly in my sleep.

via twhirl

Judgemental bottles of wine are even worse than judgemental goldfish. Staring at you. Accusing you. Knowing.

via twhirl

I really hate Mondays. (And Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Thursdays suck, and I've never enjoyed a weekend in my life.)

via twhirl

Come with me if you want to live.

@strutting: I'm no Scientist, but that appears to me to be more of a Flaneur than a Strutting.

It looks like @charlvn's "@Rafiq Aggregator" is working well: http://charlvn.za.net/cl...

A good woman is like a fine cheese. Or a large hat. Or a sasquatch. Or an elephant made out of trees, ropes and lots of smaller elephants.

I'd like to apologise to Gid for impugning his good character earlier. I meant that God is a garbage man, not Gid. Gid is a sterling fellow.

via twhirl

German beats English every time. "Fuerchten├╝nabwendbarfreundlich" - the dread of something inevitable yet benign.

via twhirl

Gid is a garbage man. Your life is his landfill. If you listen carefully, you can hear the dump-truck backing up. Beep beep beep beep...

Waking up, another day, counting the sambuca stains on my arm, looking for my other shoe, trying to work out which direction is homewards.

Suicide: our way of saying to God, "You can't fire me. I quit."

via twhirl

I eat vegetables every day so that I can't blame vitamin deficiency when I feel crap. I can know that this is me. This is how shitty I feel.

Climate change -> rising sea-levels -> obliterate parts of Cape Town. http://is.gd/1feU - their response: "OH NOES, EXPENSIVE"

via twhirl

An article discussing how rising sea-levels will obliterate parts of the Cape keeps saying "This will cost billions of Rands". Priority FAIL

via twhirl

Once again, we find ourselves stuck between Hard Rock and a Place.

Experiment #47: Testing how best to contact 27Dinner people. Results: Overwhelmingly in favour of Twitter. Thanks for the response, guys ;-)

via twhirl

Seriously, is there a trick to signing up to 27dinner.com? Am I just not technically capable enough to manage it? Even OpenID doesn't work.

via twhirl

27Dinner.com demands that my password be "at least 6 characters". Do they mean 6 specific characters? Or is 8 less than 6 now? What?!

via twhirl

Just found this site, lets you upload and share videos with people - looks interesting, could be big! http://www.youtube.com/
