  • Thinking about: Tweets for week ending 2009-09-06 http://bit.ly/M6LRc #
  • MiniMe is unusually unsettled tonight. What joy to begin the week. #
  • He's ten months old, only slept a few hours last night, but all he wants to do is crawl and explore – from whom did he inherit this stamina? #
  • Thinking about: Crime briefing, 27 August – 3 September http://bit.ly/2wW8m #
  • Why do I keep getting voicemail when the phone hasn't rung, despite being on and in a good service area? #
  • While I love and enjoy general election night, isn't it actually better for the democratic process to count the next day? #
  • #dullparentwarning Today MiniMe has mainly been a succession of bodily functions. I'm considering stockpiling corks. #
  • #dullparentwarning The change in his mood makes me think he saw that tweet – it was a joke. #
  • Big credit to @dnanian, of SuperDuper, for following up a tweeted gripe about the software, which, to be fair, never lost me a single byte in reply to dnanian #
  • Tweeting for the sake it #inanebabble #
  • The bad thing about a big flat screen is that little finger-prints and hand-marks really show up. #
  • I think it's time to face the truth, I'm burnt out on Twitter. #
  • Thinking about: Is election night worth saving? http://bit.ly/3kfjN #
  • Thinking about: Running the council http://bit.ly/H1PP5 #
  • Has Cameron started a battle of whose shirt is the hairiest? #
  • That's it, MiniMe, destroy the lovingly built tower I just made. Then laugh. Now you know what a glum councillor looks like. #
  • MiniMe was distracted so I built this wall. Good, isn't it? http://yfrog.com/0ymvmj #
  • Glum councillor condemns wanton vandalism. (for @sarahlay) (though notice the tidy demolition footprint!) http://yfrog.com/0x7mqpj #
  • Finally had a look at the #bccwebsite. What did the money go on? It's not that different to any other council site from the past five years. #
  • Hooray. My pre-order of Snow Leopard has arrived. Boo. I bought a copy on Sunday. #
  • Disaster, MiniMe has worked out how to flick off the elastic on my Moleskine which had been preventing him eating the tasty pages inside. #
  • We all need a subtitle to our names: Hilarious: BBC autocue missing a comma, perhaps? http://tr.im/y9GU (via @gecko84) #
  • Talking with MiniMe; he says Cameron's paycuts are a necessary political gimmick to kickstart the long-term rebuilding of trust in politics. #
  • Look at this former pyramid. My son is a Jenga master! Now, what are the transferable life skills… http://yfrog.com/0tt8bj #
  • Up at silly o'clock to go to Coventry tomorrow – why am I still awake? #
  • To all who sent @ and DM messages, I am sure Coventry is a lovely place with much to offer. And that people will talk to me. #
  • Coventry bound. Sadly via Euston, London's worse station. #
  • What? Backstreet Boys on my iPod? How in God's name did that happen? Curse you Now compilations. #
  • In Coventry. Why are people sent here? I see nothing desperately wrong with it. #
  • This is what I like, a hotel with a vehicle security checkpoint. #
  • Thinking about: Whose shirt is the hairiest? http://bit.ly/8LZ0T #
  • Eating idea.gov.uk mints. According to the tin I should be able to 'tastethefuture', but all I'm getting is mint. #
  • Struggling to sleep I've discovered Jeremy Kyle. There is no way back, is there? #
  • "How sure are you that Ricky is the Dad?"
    "It could be him, it could be some other guys." #
  • Credit to Jeremy Kyle, he clearly tries to ruin all his guest's lives. #
  • Thinking about: My battle against hotel orthodoxy http://bit.ly/2imlHg #
  • Au revoir Coventry. Bon soir London. #
  • Had an argument about crisps last night. I contended that processed potato snacks like Pringles are not crisps. Am I right? #
  • South of Watford. #
  • South of the River. #
  • I'm closer to fifty than twenty. #
  • Watching tonight's Corrie. Full of emotion, especially Leanne the dead rabbit. #
  • Have caught a cold from MiniMe. I'm disappointed it's a normal cold rather than a baby cold with all the symptoms, but in miniture. #
  • Peanut butter rocks. #
  • Has anyone told Cllr Wilson about this?: “I Dont Believe It”: Glum Cllr Richard Wilson. http://tumblr.com/xti32an1y (via @glumcouncillors) #
  • Thinking about: Weekly wrap-up, 11 September http://bit.ly/13kLyG #
  • Thinking about: St John’s Hill Festival http://bit.ly/1miQP2 #
  • Is anyone else finding iPhone 3.1 a bit slower that 3.0? Just a little lag on operations? Oh, just me. #
  • Goddamn it Twitter, there's a whole mess of Tweets missing from my stream. No wonder I was thinking it was quiet. #
  • Re-reading Austen, hoping the I'm not just reading what is effectively pretentious chick-lit. #
  • I would follow this link, I'm just testing TweetPress. http://b1t.me/2x #
  • Again, I'm just playing, so not worth following. http://b1t.me/2y #
  • In the odd mood of wanting to do something, but feeling I can't be bothered to do anything – is there a word for it? #
  • What a ridiculous time to be up on a Saturday. #
  • Cooling down having earnt a free t-shirt from Nike. Shudder to think what the workers were paid to make said free shirt. #
  • Not sure about the App Store genius. Why would owning a cheap photo editing app make me want a £80 SatNav app? & why all the German results? #
  • More than my job's worth not to RT this: really interesting piece by Ed Lister, Leader of Wandsworth http://tiny.cc/WBIOd (via @AndySawford) #
  • I know that time is a constant, but I'm wondering exactly how long the next 6 and a half hours will seem. #
  • Apparently my hair is looking good today. I'm having my photo taken later so have to go the whole morning not touching it. #
  • Beginning to worry if I've been stood up – mind you, I've a whole bottle of wine to finish if I have so it wouldn't be all bad. #
  • I was far too negative this morning – actually having a really interesting day. #
  • Reading my stream I feel I should make some local political observation about canvassing or some such. #
  • Would it be wrong to say 'Belinda Carlisle FTW'? #
  • So, La Scala, basically the same music, with a few steps on electric instruments (and possibly mimed)? #
  • That is what they are called, isn't it? #
  • Starting Valkyrie. Anyone who already knows this is an awful movie please refrain from telling me. #
  • Big Brother?! I thought C4 was safe to surf to nowadays. #
  • How on earth can John Maclane escape this cockpit filled with live grenades… oh, like that. #
  • Just had champagne and oysters. Oh the life of a glum councillor. #
  • If you are at the St John's Hill Festival and get number 2 in the goldfish racing just leave, the fish is a pup. #
  • Back from a fun few hours at the St John's Hill Festival. Lunched at Fish Club, can't believe I've never been there before – it's excellent. #
  • Can you do anything online with an Oyster card without having to visit a Tube station first? #
  • Starting a mid-afternoon nap. And feeling guilty. #
  • Seem to be regularly on Apple's support chat nowadays. #
