Tweets for week ending 2009-04-26

  • Having some fascinating conversations on & off Twitter following my blog post http://is.gd/tF7I but sadly have to go and get a haircut… #
  • What do you think about Wandsworth’s news? Feel free to say you want to hear more about me! http://snipurl.com/gd90x (via @wandbc) #
  • At the BATCA Open Forum, do they look friendly? http://twitpic.com/3q5dw #
  • Am I the only one slightly disturbed by the Chancellor talking about the 30s? #
  • How many billion are they borrowing, did I hear that right? #budget #
  • From 2010, as economy starts to recover, borrowing will fall to £173bn, then £140bn, £118bn and £97bn #budget (via @hmtreasury) Just WOW. #
  • After hitting the high earners, we’ll hit smokers and drinkers next… #budget #
  • Wandsworth’s first (that I know) local Twitter listing: Balham Twits site is live – http://is.gd/tXOp Pls spread the word (via @balhamtwits) #
  • Just been to see ‘In The Loop’ (in a cinema full of babies). Scary how much has actually happened since it must have been written. #
  • My beloved Monkey (my old iSight-less G5) has died. Am I going to be forced to buy a new 24″ iMac after a suitable period of mourning? #
  • I’m loving Tweetie for Mac… http://is.gd/r9H8 and love the look of Birdhouse – but isn’t it against everything Twitter is meant to be? #
  • Part of me thinks Birdhouse is bad for Twitter, but a bigger part is a sucker for a good looking app. #
  • Graham Norton, Peter Andre and Jordan all on the same show. Some sort of horrific disaster in the studio would be good. Sorry, Jimmy Carr. #
  • Is it me or is tonight’s Newsnight Almost suicidally depressing? Thank God I’m not a Labour canvassed. #
  • Looks like Disk Warrior will be working its magic on my iMac (Monkey) overnight. But I’m beginning to fear Monkey has lost his mojo. #
  • Anyone able to help with a #Mac query? Do I need to restore anything but the Users folder from a failed HD to get all my personal data back? #
  • In Battersea Park wondering why the hell I didn’t bring a decent camera. http://twitpic.com/3w43d #
  • Totally irrespective of politics, I’m fascinated to see if we can get #Brownmustresign to trend and what the effect will be if we do… #
  • Got a direct mail from my Labour MP about the budget. Not well targeted & I do so wish he’d bothered to straighten his tie for the photo. #
  • I would stress I think he should go at an election, but it would be fascinating to see if we can get enough moment to trend #Brownmustresign #
  • Economy the ‘weakest in 30 years’ http://is.gd/uhCh erm, that’ll be the weakest since the last time Labour were clinging to power then. #
  • Thanks to @Neil_Robertson, @sassylad & @cabbiescapital for the #followfriday recs – I’m going to start doling out my own from next week. #
  • Another Wandsworth Cllr on Twitter. Please say hi to Cllr @Angela_Graham. #
  • What better way to spend a Saturday than waiting for the plumber to arrive… #
  • Grimsby 1-0 up at Bournemouth. Chester 1-1 at Aldershot. Looking good for avoiding relegation, and with a game to spare. #
  • Damn you, Bournemouth, for equalising, like the results matters for you! And while I’m at it, Blackpool was a much better conference venue. #
  • And Aldershot take the lead against Chester – excellent. I bet they’d be better for conferences than Bournemouth as well. #
  • Curses. Mariners lose and Chester draw, so down to the last match of the season. We should have had this sewn up by now. #
  • Feeling rather pleased with myself for spotting an obscure Quantum Leap reference on Chuck. #
  • Went for long-ish run yesterday, no #londonmarathon, but long enough to get runners’ nipple. My sympathy to today’s underprepared men. #
  • Just had a stint of tidying my followers/followings. Tried to be ruthless, wasn’t at all… #
  • An absolutely fantastic afternoon. There can only be one thing to do, since everyone will be in on a day like this, yup, canvassing! #
  • A #mac question – is migration assistant horrendously slow? It’s been claiming my user folder will take 19 hours to copy for 3hrs. Give up? #
  • And while I’m asking questions (& getting few answers) any recommendations for #iphone RSS with some form of sync to a desktop. #
  • I’ve had enough watching my backup slowly restore and looking for RSS apps. I’m going to watch some Sky+d ‘Come Dine With Me’. Rock and Roll #
  • Someone should produce a list of words linked to auto-followers, so I could studiously avoid using any of them. #
