  • Thinking about: Tweets for week ending 2009-08-24 http://bit.ly/30rt5s #
  • London Buses have an unpaid fare book for when Oyster Cards fail. Can't believe I've never seen it considering this is my third failed card. #
  • Thinking about: Crime briefing, 12 – 20 August http://bit.ly/m29sS #
  • Had a coffee outside Tate Britain earlier, which is probably as much culture as I can handle until tonight's Corrie double bill. #
  • Now onto my 20th new follower notification for the same person. Is Twitter borked, or don't they know how to use Twitter? #
  • What's amazing about the whole chugger debate is the way all the pro-comments seem to come together. Another two in just five minutes! #
  • Charitable giving in the UK in 2008 c£10.8 billion. Total from chugging c£70 million. #
  • This year I'm resisting joining the Regent Street queue for the latest OS X. Although I bet there'll be a strike delaying a mail order. #
  • Counsel required. Anyone care to share an opinion on the second comment from the PFRA here: http://tr.im/wZW7 ? #
  • Now I'm getting multiple email notifications of a DM. Is it really just me getting this? #
  • Does anyone know of a site that discusses placement of things like RSS/fb/YouTube links on a webpage? #lazyweb #
  • Still working. Seems endless at the moment. And soon my 'days' are going to be cut. #
  • I don't know why, but feel I want to use the word 'anodyne' more frequently. #
  • Wow, use the word 'anodyne' and you get RTed by the graveyard show on KBOO 90.7FM. #
  • This bus is being held here in order to regulate the service. #
  • Registered for this year's Nike+ Human Race. Wonder if they'll massively over order shirts, which no-one buys, then give them away again. #
  • Wow, there was a guy just on BBC Radio Newcastle who really was talking a lot of sense. #
  • I've got to pay my £1 bus fare from when my Oyster card failed by credit card or check even though I know processing costs are over £1. #
  • I'm resenting having to write a £1 cheque to TfL knowing (because I reduced it from £2.40) it costs them £1.28 to process. #fb #
  • Leona Lewis ruined 'Run'. Annie Lennox ruined 'Shining Light'. Isn't there a lesson in the versions you should be playing BBC Newcastle? #
  • Can anyone recommend a good, clear sans-serif font that isn't Arial, Helvetica or Gill sans? #lazyweb #
  • I'm amazed (and rather pleased) that a request for font suggestions elicited so many responses. I just shows you are all good people. #
  • Another Total Politics pops through the door and almost immediately helps towards Wandsworth's recycling targets. #
  • Thinking about: Public sector inefficiency: double paying bus fares http://bit.ly/1H4CnU #
  • Wow. I'm going to be paid to role play a long-serving cllr that doesn't really know what's going on. I think I can manage that. #
  • You might think you're sending me a 'stakeholder survey'. I'm actually receiving more help towards the recycling target. #
  • Sorting through lots of papers, but just can't bring myself to recycle my flyer from http://www.gnomereserve.co.uk #
  • I can't believe how dropdownboxtastically annoying TfL make it to give their staff some praise http://yfrog.com/72eqdj #
  • Think that's enough of listening to BBC Newcastle, I'm going to move a little to the south and go for Humberside now. #
  • The evening rush-hour can do its worse: my ipod's got new headphones and Fantastic 80s. #
  • Having seen it on 'You Have Been Watching' I'm watching 'Deadliest Warrior'. Shockingly bad. #
  • Today I have become a 'new man'. I have also realised it's incompatible with Twitter. #
  • Right, I've got about 30 minutes of Twitter time until MiniMe wakes up. What's happening? #
  • MiniMe has woken. And with that take my leave from social media and head for a nappy change (him not me). #
  • Thinking about: On being a new man http://bit.ly/2Sy4qo #
  • Having just watched last night's 'You Have Been Watching' makes me think perhaps Big Brother wasn't that bad after all. #
  • Playing with my wife's new Blackberry. It's awful, would anyone actually choose to have one? #
  • My second day of being a part-time stay-at-home Dad. MiniMe is amusing himself with toys, but it's a façade: I know he's plotting something. #
  • Thinking about: …being nice to TfL http://bit.ly/10fvOL #
  • Thinking about: Battersea Poems http://bit.ly/Og4at #
  • I need to get myself on this: Utter genius http://glumcouncillors.tumblr.com/ (via @podnosh) #
  • Ooo, my Snow Leopard has shipped, perhaps that explains why Mail.app has crashed twice in the last 30 minites… it's feeling rejected. #
  • Straight from Apple. I was assuming next week… so if it comes today or tomorrow I'll be happy. #
  • Finally the new facebook app arrives in the App Store. #
  • Oooo, the new facebook app has the jiggly re-arrange icon thing going on. #
  • Thinking about: Councillor points at pothole shocker http://bit.ly/JRe01 #
  • The postman didn't bring my copy of Snow Leopard. I'm just going to have to be jealous of all you who have it now… #
  • Thinking about: Weekly wrap-up, 28 August http://bit.ly/YcIde #
  • Listening to BBC Cornwall today. #
  • Does anyone else have difficulty looking at a list and thinking of what's missing? Any tricks for doing it? #
  • Any experts on IP addresses out there? How suspicious should I be of multiple comments from the same IP? #
  • At the launch of the SW11 Literary Festival listening to poet-in-residence Steve Tasane http://yfrog.com/avv31j #
  • The sky is looking murderously grim over SW11. #
  • Bugger. Twitter have restored my tweet count. Now I look sad (though not as sad as I thought). #
  • Slightly disturbed how much Chris de Burgh is on offer at the iTunes store. Even more disturbed I did the search to find out. #
  • Playing name that tune with iTunes previews I've discovered @jesscousins has a knowledge of 80s pop that can only be described as freakish. #
  • Im feeling better sharing the misery RT @ChimeraX: Gutted. Just got home and my snow leopard was not waiting for me. Bad kitty! #
  • RT @mario Really disappointed snow leopard didn't arrive in the post today. Didn't order it, but surely apple should have known I wanted it. #
  • Back from a rather nice run around @BatterseaPkSW11 (hello, by the way). #
  • Some correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Take That the only band from the early 90s still successfully recording? #
  • Twitter seems very quiet today – is it the bank holiday or just because it's Saturday? #
