  • Thinking about: Tweets for week ending 2009-09-20 http://bit.ly/1aauiJ #
  • Thinking about: Crime briefing, 10 – 17 September 2009 http://bit.ly/MOkQd #
  • I need a Twitter client that can filter out #ldconf tweets. #
  • Birdhouse #
  • Is it me, or is the 'How Sexy Am I?' facebook app that gets you deselected impossible to install? – http://is.gd/3wUYy #fb #
  • It's worrying how much I enjoy MiniMe's desserts. Stage 2 & 3 weaning foods are tragically under-rated. #
  • MiniMe isn't impressed with #ldconf & says it shows why they'll never be the 2nd party. He's quite harsh for one who can't even stand yet. #
  • I fear @jesscousins is discovering the pitfalls of my stay-at-home Dad status; my conversation is ltd to bowel movements & bathtime traumas. #
  • So I leave @jesscousins watching Sky+d Strictly to go canvassing. For once, I have the slightly better deal. #
  • They rehearse sitting!? RT @tweetminster: @mpntod At rehearsal for people who will be sitting behind Nick during the leader's speech #ldconf #
  • Jeez. To get to Stafford for an 8am meeting means leaving Euston at 5.30am… LateRooms here I come. #
  • Trying the Oyster card helpline. Why do I have the feeling I'm going to be wasting my time? #
  • Ah. They close at 9pm. Might have wanted to tell me that before I navigate through three levels of automated menu. #
  • #simplytweet's threaded conversations are superb. I'm beginning to think I've finally found my new Tweetie. #
  • ran 4.14 mi on 22/9/2009 at 6:17 AM with a pace of 8'42"/mi

  • Not sure I like Nike+ tweeting & facebooking my runs, thus showing my lack of fitness and pace to the world. #fb #
  • Thinking about: My imminent de-selection http://bit.ly/26ZG90 #
  • MiniMe appears to be putting things away… Can you exhibit OCD at 10 months? #
  • MiniMe's just emptied the bin all over the floor and crawled off happy as larry – seems my OCD diagnosis was premature. #
  • Are people finally realising St Vince isn't all that? #ldconf #
  • Not going to be getting a bonus this year. RT @jesscousins: Chugger overheard on Tottenham Court Rd "I'm not after your money honest". Hmm #
  • Considering useful, and time-saving, tattoos I could get. At the moment "I've not done anything to it, it's just like that" is the winner. #
  • Just, wow RT @NadineDorriesMP: When I employed a Polish builder, I paid a lawyer to check his papers. I wanted to be that extra bit careful. #
  • I hate it when invitations make me realise what a cultural philistine I am. #
  • Anyone want to join me in calling for the extinction of Chris Packham? – http://is.gd/3zdBA #
  • Continuing my 80s journey – Bonnie Tyler & 'Holding Out for a Hero', reminds me of Johnny Five & 'Short Circuit 2'. Always cry at the movie. #
  • Oh wow, I'd forgotten about this one: Nick Berry and 'Every Loser Wins' #80sGems #
  • RT @pierre_nel: You must have serious issues if you're pirating Lily Allen's music. #dontflatteryourself #
  • The most amusing tweet I've seen for ages, even if I don't know the context – RT @IdleSi: Dance for me @mightymariner, dance #
  • Really imagined the bar would be livelier, and wouldn't be playing Cher, but can't complain about the 2:1 staff to customer ratio. #
  • Has anyone called the fire brigade? RT @gill_edwards: Boots in balham is on fire! #
  • There's always something odd about the silence of a hotel breakfast – especially when I'm the only solo guest here. #
  • Thinking about: Baroness Scotland’s legacy to Brown http://bit.ly/3eMR57 #
  • I've just had a really positive day. The IDeA may be going under Cameron, but while it lasts it's a real privilege to be involved. #
  • How fantastic that @constipatedtwee is following me – obviously there's something about the way I look in my avatar. #
  • I feel a little childish saying this, but starting to feel really travel-sick on a this Pendolino. #
  • Thanks to the nausea inducing Pendolino this is the first time I've ever been pleased to see Euston! #
  • That's why my usually quiet 156 from Vauxhall is so busy RT @draml Stuck at Waterloo. Place is gridlocked, fatality at Earlsfield apparently #
  • This bus driver clearly thinks he's driving a Pendolino emulator. #
  • If there was ever an app to make you wish the iPhone DIDN'T exist, it is this: http://is.gd/3BUrV #
  • No like being up this early. #
  • Time for the 'which bus stop is closest?' gamble. It's like a dull version of Russian roulette. #
  • CLICK. #
  • The asterisk next to my train on the departure board is disturbing… where's the explanation? #
  • The asterisk means it's a fast train to Reading. And I tell you that simply because it's the only time I'll ever want Reading autocorrected. #
  • Starting my the ten hours I'm spending on a train today. No wifi & to a place with poor mobile coverage. I'm really looking forward to it. #
  • First Great Western travel tip: take a double plug – the power sockets are conveniently placed so your laptop power adaptor won't fit. #
  • RT @Mightymariner: Obama turned down mighty mariners request for a meeting. I am officially as important as gordon brown #
  • Thinking about: Nick Clegg can take heart from Gordon Brown http://bit.ly/GtxbK #
  • The Staffordshire Hoard, ah, so that's the attraction of wondering around cold, wet and muddy fields – http://is.gd/3CW7T #
  • At Truro station with a wait that's just too short to do anything. On the plus side I have a double plug so on the train I HAVE THE POWER. #
  • Judging by the platform most of the local school children commute by train here. I hope to God they aren't in first. #
  • That, or poor Gordon, it'll all be over soon RT @paulwaugh: Obama just put his arm around Brown at the UN. 'Snub? Schnub' was the message #
  • Now I have power on the train my muse has abandoned me and I just want to watch the scenery. #
  • Bad: Ant & Dec released a single. Tragedy: it somehow got onto my iPhone. Disaster: I let it play long enough to get to the rap. #
  • I'm at Reading. Again, I get to artificially use the iPhone's annoying autocorrect of reading. #
  • More eclectic iPoddery. 'The Typewriter' just popped up while I was typing. Almost feel like a proper writer. #
  • Suppose I should watch some #bbcqt… Harriet Harman is looking well. #
  • #bbcqt Harman: "Younger women are too silly, older women are too wrinkly… but I'm just right?" #
  • I've a really bad cold. Sympathy please. #
  • Thanks frvthe sympathy @Timforchange @abisander @crimeficreader @iamamro I'm going to make myself feel better by stealing MiniMe's food. in reply to Timforchange #
  • Thinking about: Weekly wrap-up, 25 September http://bit.ly/j2VvV #
  • Thinking about: Old York Road Street Party http://bit.ly/sYNI6 #
  • Jesus. Not only do I get Mafia Wars spam on Twitter, I'm being bombarded with Mafia Wars related Skype contact requests. #
  • Got a baby-sitter and going out for pizza tomorrow. It's sad how excited I am about something so simple. #
  • Sky+ failed to record Strictly. Clever Sky+ box. #
  • People are mocking me for having Twitter on my business cards. They don't understand. You are my real friends. #
  • Fantastic dU for all but the Old York Road street party is on its last pain au chocolate. R – http://twitpic.com/j7rg2 #
  • Playing with Hootsuite. What am I missing? It's a good Twitter client on the web, but is there more than that? #
  • Congratulations to @alex_crawshaw and Mrs @alex_crawshaw (or @gill_edwards) on their wedding today. #
  • What's worse: That I'm excited about a night out, or that it's at a restaurant every other local blogger has been paid to eat at? #
  • Grappa. Yes or no? #
  • Thanks for helping me justify the grappa I've ordered. #
  • One grappa graspanea later my cold seems much better. #
  • Trying to work out whether the new Shooting Stars has a laughter track or an audience. #
  • Think I'm finally going to see Memphis Belle all the way through. Should have been in it – didn't have the balls. #
  • RT @AngryBritain: Labour Conference Agenda: 1. We're fucked 2. Expensed tea and biscuits 3. Home #
  • Jealous of those at #lab09 this week – all the internal politics and politicking… Just like the Tories under Major & IDS. #
  • This closes our circle of potential babysitters still further http://tr.im/zUv2 #
  • Ah, Psych. Can there be any better Sunday night TV? #
