Okay, 2010. No flying cars or nanobots, but when I get home from a wine festival, I make one call, and pizzagoodness gets delivered. Truce.
Cassette's last song at Diemersfontein's "Pinotage on Tap" festival. Not a bad day, all considered. http://yfrog.com/76pglj
Sun sets over the wine festival. I wonder what's on TV. Stupid crappy Africa. http://yfrog.com/3zz4bj
WombatSam If you haven't seen a toddler staring thoughtfully into the distance with both index fingers up the same nostril, you haven't lived.
Plus! Human foozball! http://yfrog.com/6d89jxyj
Sitting in the sun, food platters going past, pinotage and merlot on tap, band playing. Another crappy day in Africa. Ain't life hard?
Make coffee in a juice glass, pour milk into your actual juice, walk into the door on your way out the kitchen. Have a great day.
I'm growing as a person because I recognise that I will regret this in the morning, right? Which makes it okay, right? [he tweeted, at 2am]
Feeling down? Tired? Thursday blues? General malaise? Watch this: http://is.gd/go4Pb - Feel better. Spring in your step. People are awesome.
I guess that should be *Sexy* "Sinking Feeling That Your Life Is Unfulfilling And You Will Die Alone" costumes, since it is Halloween.
Lazyweb: does anywhere in Cape Town stock "Sinking Feeling That Your Life Is Unfulfilling And You Will Die Alone" costumes for Halloween?
OCD is reaching "you didn't spray deodorant completely evenly and in exactly equal quantities on both sides" levels.
I would probably have made this man president: http://is.gd/gmflB
@WombatSam If only there were some way for you to show us that survey. Some manner in which you could direct us to it. If only.
Note to coworker: You don't need to number each one of your list of points. Especially when you only have one point.
@ads_infinitum It's Monday night. Shouldn't you be livetweeting Team Hummus?
Dozily using <h*> tags to number your points instead of mark them up gives your page a pleasant Star Wars intro sort of look.
"PR6D:( The performance is sold out. Please, try another date." - Computicket is letting its developers write its error messages again.
@kringlan 'pan-' as a prefix means "all", but you probably want "dried up basin that used to be a lake".
I have no idea what I just did. I think I... signed up for something? What did I click on?
I ate some tofu, thinking it was feta. Now I know how tourists in Thailand feel when they realise that she is a he.
@Ashleigh_Martyn How soon do you need this impatience of yours to be fixed?
Guys, I got to work, and there was this coffee, right, and, long story short, I'm a disgusting, disgusting person.
@frogandcode Took me a while, but I see where you're going now. You need to cache your Czech.
Our coffee machine is constipated.
I just had a whole conversation with a total stranger about cars. Automobiles! Motorvehicles! I might be a Real Boy after all!
Seriously, why is "likes to laugh" a thing people say about themselves? Are there people that don't? "Enjoys fun. Dislikes discomfort."
I'm not angry, twitter. Just disappointed.
@rigard with you. The article (which you mis-linked to, btw) should say "stuff on web may have privacy issues because the internet is kak".
@rigard No, your lawn is closed, that's why "HTML5" is the preferred alternative, regardless of its problems - it's an open standard.
"Also, get off my lawn!", the angry Flash developer continued.
The UK's "National Schools Film Week" initiative should relax: nsfw.com *is* educational, and *does* have films.
Yes, that's in the news. But what about the Chilean minors? http://www.newsweek.com/...
It's like Groundhog Day, but with Chilean miners instead of groundhogs, and you know when it's going to end because CNN has a scoreboard.
Chilean miners: monotonous. Every 25 minutes, a head pops out and three women run over and start arguing over who is his favourite mistress.
@davewiner I read every word! Microsoft, you and I agree that overuse of phones is annoying. So they're implying we won't use their product?
@ripienaar ... but Africa is not a country...
@davewiner so wait. The ad is saying that people won't want to use the Microsoft phone as much as other phones? And that's... good? Really?
How did I ever get so fancy? Not only did I suit up today, but I am wearing cufflinks. CUFFLINKS, PEOPLE. #ISUD
clamhead Wait a second. If cars start driving themselves, how will we get where we need to go?
@Jackyah333 Would you refuse to read a blog or online publication if their authors don't read your blog?
@Jackyah333 Why would anybody want to follow you when all you talk about is how people don't follow you back? You clearly don't get twitter.
I think I had a new speed record getting to work today, but I didn't time it, so it doesn't count. SO THAT'S HOW IT'S GOING TO BE, AGE 31?
For my next trick, I'll turn 31 years of existence into some credit card debt, a decent book collection, and a vast knowledge of pop-culture
I apologize to those followers who are used to my usual bile and vitriol, cynicism and sarcasm. I accidentally be'd Happy, sorry about that.
(Viva the Future, especially on a birthday. I'm "sitting home alone", but talking to five friends and two family members.)
I know we have no flying cars or robot servants, but I just had the best talk with my little sister, 9961km away, for free. Viva the Future!
Backing up all my stuff to Time Machine, so that I can restore in case being aged 31 sucks. That's how it works, right?
Q: What goes "cssssk... Ahhhh!" ?
A: The last beer of being-aged-30.
@WombatSam Wow, Africa is like the biggest country in the whole WORLD! (Is "India Part 2" what they're calling Pakistan these days?)
Q: Is listening to Jeff Buckley's "Hallelujah" first thing on a Monday healthy? A: oh lordy lordy lordy no.
(That's a true story, by the way. It didn't make much sense to this soutie at the time, but I'd say it's fairly accurate.)
People are asking what's wrong, and why I'm not sleeping. I quote my doctor's professional, medical opinion: Ek trek my lyf deur my gat.
Just realized I've been to this sushi bar before, ages ago, on my 2nd date with an ex who tried to get me into "sushi". Well, she succeeded.
jasonjordan Today is 10/10/10 NOT 10/10/10 you stupid Americans.
@alphabetania You can (currently) point the domain you purchased elsewhere to your free Yola site, for free.

@oxo42 Why are you surprised? There's like 100,000 times more trousers than chainsaws in Britain, so they're 50,000 LESS dangerous.
This is strangely unsatisfying.
YES! #NewTwitter. They didn't forget me! They love me after all! YES! (So this is how Sandra Bullock felt when she finally got that Oscar?)
Reasons to get some damn sleep, pt 3: you go to twitter.com and, for a second, think you've finally FINALLY got #newtwitter. ... Oh... Wait.
@ripienaar Super-chuffed - way to go
Sleep (cont): also useful in avoiding short, unpleasant crash-courses like "Firm Grip, the Breakability of Glass, and Cleaning Up Sucks 101"
Sleep: a vital ingredient in Not Running Red Lights because you auto-pilot forward when you see the *other* light go green.
Wait, I know this one! I was totally reading about Picasso's Blue Period at quarter to one in the morning just last week!
How do you spell "die in a fire" when you mean "die in a fire but don't hate me for telling you so"?
I'm grateful for another chance to perfect the 4:30am no-sleep tweet. I'm also apologetic for fluffing it yet again.
RianVDM I've now read Goldilocks 53 times this week, and the REAL mystery is why Mama and Papa bear are sleeping in separate beds.
@Jim_Holland Interesting factoid: if you'd checked January, July, October 2009 and October 2015, you'd stop retweeting lies.
Plus, that 4:30am tweet wasn't made any better for having been twooted at 5am.
You'd think that lying awake tossing and turning all night would mean I had time to come up with a better 4:30am tweet than this, huh?
"Arpita Srinivasan", "Bhimrao Chandrakant", "Nitya Sritharan". I wonder where your support centre is based. Dublin, right?
I was going to do that "Is it October already?" thing, but it's more honest to do the "Is it 2010 already? What happened to my life?" thing.
"Month" doesn't even rhyme with "punch". Stupid kids.
