Tweets for week ending 2009-06-21

  • Jeremy Vine (or someone claiming to be him) has emailed me following my Tweets about his election graphics. Any suggestions for responses? #
  • Absolutely mountain of work this afternoon. Felt compelled to start up Tweetie to tweet about it rather than actually do it. #
  • Gorgeous day. Far too hot for a suit and a badly ventilated town hall. #
  • Had some inspiring discussions about localism today – but there's part of me that wonders if council driven localism defeats the point. #
  • Trying to unwind by telling myself I have a meeting-less day tomorrow, but still feel I should be doing something. Any tips (exc. alcohol)? #
  • Ah. Twitter is back. Now I can unburden my soul of pent up dull and pointless observations and thoughts again. #
  • Serious credit due to @grantshapps for responding to my (tongue-in-cheek) response about his Twitter boast. #
  • Am I the only one who isn't orgasmic about TweetDeck for iPhone? It just seems slightly clunky, with a few rough edges. #
  • Why do moo cards offer standard shipping that's faster than express shipping? Doesn't it rather defeat the point? #
  • Why do all Nigerian spammers think that Fernando is a trustworthy name? I've got Susan's sister Doris after me now. #
  • While I like Twitter's quirks, but wouldn't it be great if, just once, it would work consistently for a whole day. #
  • I'm miles behind with followers. Now I've got the dull job of identifying all the SEO/Social Media experts I'm not going to follow back. #
  • Christ. @Twitter. Just work. You hear me? Work. Do what you promise you will on your buttons and links. Please. Just once. For the children. #
  • Now everyone has iPhone 3.0 I'm really looking forward to getting lots of MMSs. *drums fingers* #
  • The etiquette snob in me is glad the local branch of Moss Bros has stopped trying to push grey top hats for Ascot. #
  • The recession has hit spammers. One of my regular comment spammers is only making $300 a day now. He was on $1,000 a day not so long ago. #
  • It's slightly concerning that my iPhone with 3G off is beating my home broadband. Curse you O2, curse you. #
  • By the power of Twitter. I complain about O2 Broadband being very slow today and @Talk2O2 follow me, if only I lived in Ireland. #
  • The link does work now: How politics are done: Lesson 2 – Taking credit http://is.gd/15iBB (though it's only really a dig at Wandsworth LDs) #
  • Does anyone know what you call those off-set gate/fence things that are meant to slow down cyclists? #
  • Tip for restaurants emailing me: invest money in good food photography. Making your food look like a plate of sick will not bring punters. #
  • Gah. So not content with sending their magazine (unrequested) every month I'm now getting spam email from Total Politics. #
  • Police face prosecution for obstructing photographers using Anti-Terror Laws. http://bit.ly/1nKmW (via @mattwardman) #
  • I recognise the sentiment behind the green avatars, but I can't help but think of the Incredible Hulk. Lou Ferrigno was a childhood hero. #
  • BBC News talking about how hot summers will be in the 2080s… depressingly assuming I'll be dead by then. #
  • My hairdresser has texted me to say it's probably time for a haircut. Great. Now I can feel self-conscious about my hair. #
  • Wow. A queue outside my local O2. http://yfrog.com/5fj0bj #
  • Ooooo, the 3GS has a volume control on the headphones… No more groping in the pocket. #
  • Milly is doing a stint at the Northcote Road Carnival today (@tweetchard she gets around!) http://yfrog.com/46cw4j #
  • Just worked out how to turn on the compass for maps. How did I live this long without it? #
  • First night out entrusting my son and heir to a baby-sitter (my mother-in-law to be precise). Worried she'll be on the wine before I am. #
  • Having a bet with my wife that someone else on Twitter is at Matt & Mel's engagement. But how would we know??? #
  • Turns out the first time we use a baby sitter is the night we discover we are past it. Terminal hour for us was actually earlier than baby. #
  • Saturday morning. Hungover. What to do? Oh yes. Canvassing. #
  • Hmmm. Think I may have found one of Wandsworth's few thousand BNP voters. #
  • And the Tooting Mela tomorrow> I know it doesn't mean much to alot of you, but it's the Furzedown Festival today 🙂 (via @giloi2009) #
  • Discovered first major failing of iPhone OS 3.0 – makes it far too easy for your wife to record your drunken snoring. #
  • Anyone got any tips for extracting (alive) a frog who seems to have got stuck in a watering can spout? http://yfrog.com/58vq1j #
  • People like @ThePickards just talk about it, but it's deeds not words that matter when it comes to #frogrescue (& #localgovcamp I suppose). in reply to ThePickards #
  • Watching #localgovcamp on Twitterfall reminds me how much I miss seeing replies on Twitter, it was such a great way of finding people. #
  • Councils have nothing to do with local papers failing when this is considered 'news': The art of seduction for ugly men (via @localguardian) #
  • Should have included the link! Spam via the local press, it'll be penis enlargement next http://tinyurl.com/mzdg7e (via @localguardian) #
  • Making a trip to Argos to pick up some cheap iTunes vouchers. I normally can't stand Argos, but will make an exception today. #
  • Wasted trip to Argos. All vouchers have been reserved. #
  • It's Daddy's Day. Is that justification enough for alcohol? I think it is. #
