Tweets for week ending 2009-01-18

  • Ploughing through a huge in-tray. But deep down, just excited about ’24’ starting tonight. What would Cllr Jack Bauer do, I wonder? #
  • Right, my inbox is empty for the first time since before Christmas, and it’s staying that way. Nobody email me, ever! #
  • Three emails… Already… My pristine inbox defiled! #
  • Heading up to St John’s Hill to talk with traders about A-boards – fingers crossed we’ve got our policy about right. #
  • Back from my first run of the year, I feel a lot better for it, but could feel I’m still carrying a lot of Christmas pud. #
  • RT @jonworth Read past customary rant and look at UK airport stats – fascinating. No 3rd Runway! http://is.gd/fEsW in reply to jonworth #
  • Starting to prepare for our crime strategic assessment – and deciding what should be the priorities for the next year. #
  • My new year buzz has come late, but started feeling really positive about what we’re doing on crime and (surprisingly) the economy in 2009. #
  • I quite fancy adding YouTube to my engagement experiment, but just can’t think of a good use… Any ideas? #
  • Why I have no opinion on the proposed towers at Clapham Junction… I’m not allowed to have an opinion – http://is.gd/fRDX #
  • On my way to Leadership Centre session on ‘The Future of Politics’ with Hazel Blears, Eric Pickles and Julia Goldsworthy. #
  • I’m somewhat enthused by the ‘Future of Politics’, but worry the analysis about why people don’t become councillors is slightly off. #
  • 3rd runway gets go-ahead – not great news. http://bit.ly/9kjC #
  • A day of solid achievement ahead: casework, CRB check, Heathrow (!) and only one council meeting. I might even do some touting for work. #
  • Heathrow expansion has got the expected go-ahead. http://bit.ly/VapN #
  • My HD is down to 4.29GB free space & my iMac is crawling. I remember when I had a 20MB HD (& 25MHz processor) and thought I was lucky. #
  • I’m ashamed to admit that ‘Come Dine With Me’ is on my TV – but I need to ask the question… exactly what is the point of Abi Titmuss? #
  • And tonight I shall be mostly engaging the community. #
  • More meetings about the community safety strategic assessment this morning. Am very coffee dependent today. #
  • On my way to meet @ingridk to apologise profusely for being late and then have a chat about social media, and local government stuff. in reply to ingridk #
  • Does anyone know of any *UK* crime-mapping sites that map by location like my attempts, e.g. http://is.gd/g7mO rather than averages? #
  • Wow, this is my 200th tweet! So, something profound. Um, yeah, right… 200. Don’t suppose anyone can answer no. 199? http://is.gd/g7My #
  • Heading to Balham for some belated New Year drinks with the Town Centre Partnership. #
  • It’s Friday, a great day for fish and chips. Unfortunately, judging by the queue, half of Battersea have had exactly the same idea. #
  • Is it possible to get a hangover from coffee? I have the symptoms, but didn’t drink last night – I did have way too much coffee though. #
  • How cow. Grimsby won. 1-0 against Wycombe. How on earth did that happen? #
  • I curse the manufacturer of my crappy modem router. #
  • I can’t workout if ‘Total Wipeout’ is a symbol of all that’s wrong with British broadcasting, or actually quite entertaining. #
  • Just had the first & second Heathrow arrivals of the day – & its only just gone 4.30! What was I saying the other day? http://bit.ly/14aEF #
  • I wish I’d stayed off Twitter today – then I would never have found out about Tony Hart dying. #
  • I’m paying Sky a small fortune each month and there is absolutely nothing on worth watching. Thank God for YouTube, which is, um, free. #
  • I was thinking of publishing casework maps, e.g., http://is.gd/gmAh a good idea for engagement & transparency… or politically ‘brave’? #
