  • Thinking about: Tweets for week ending 2009-07-20 http://tr.im/t5gN #
  • Great that Google Docs is being a fast and slick as ever today… #
  • Having an interesting discussion on how good Cllr Jack Bauer would be. Conclusion seems to be that he would be very outcome focused, & good. #
  • Finally listened to the CCTV on WAO. Interesting how a 30 minute interview ends up as 15 sec broadcast! Time-consuming business, journalism. #
  • Ooo, the postman has brought another copy of Total Politics. Immediate re-cycling target win. #
  • Thinking about: Crime briefing, 9 – 16 July http://tr.im/tb7I #
  • Looking for venue suggestions for #sw11tweet (see http://tr.im/sw11) ideas welcome. #
  • Just got an approach for a media interview via Twitter. The power of social media. #
  • Aside from my media stardom, any ideas for an #SW11tweet venue? I'm hoping to check a few out over the next few days. #
  • Thinking about: SW11 tweet-up: what venue? http://tr.im/tbLD #
  • With the exception of @marxculture I'm lacking suggestions for an #sw11tweet venue – speak now, or forever hold your peace. #
  • At a meeting soon, so no more Tweeting. But keep suggestions for #sw11tweet coming – the Goat on Battersea Rise seems an early favourite. #
  • Just finished at Town Hall. Great to have an early night when I'm starting at 4:30 tomorrow. #
  • Yeah. I see where this is going. #
  • Booo. They cut me. #
  • The Goat seems a runaway favourite for #sw11tweet. I'll check it out tomorrow, but any violent objections or other ideas? #
  • Slightly star-struck in the green room with Shami Chakrabarti, who's a bit of a personal hero of mine. #
  • Now my 8 minutes of fame are over I'm back to thinking about #sw11tweet. I'll be checking out the Goat, any other last minute ideas? #
  • Does anyone know a useful local Twitter directory? Having everyone lumped under 'London' isn't that useful. #
  • For my next tweet, I apologise, I'm not normally one to spam or sign petitions, but this one I couldn't resist… #
  • petition @Support to reinstate @alncl's account #freealncl http://act.ly/a1 retweet to sign #
  • Thinking about: Shaftesbury Ward News, issue 2 http://tr.im/tjMu #
  • I hate ego RTs, but this one is irresistable: RT @LizIxer: @jamescousins You're much taller on TV than you are on Twitter #
  • Thinking about: SW11 tweet-up: Now we have a venue! http://tr.im/tl8n #
  • Great news #sw11tweet is sorted. The Goat, Battersea Rise, 5 August. Are you coming? http://twtvite.com/dqew7k (and please RT) #
  • My early start has been making itself felt for a few hours, I'm seriously lacking the drive to do anything but surf aimlessly, or maybe nap. #
  • Now I'm unable to resist lame hashtags. I once sold Arthur Smith a warm can of Guinness for a fiver #lameclaimtofame (and I feel guilty) #
  • If you're treated with it, what was he ill with? RT @tweetminster Lab candidate in Norwich North treated with swine flu: http://bit.ly/2el2g #
  • Tinkering with my facebook profile… I really should try harder to update my status #fb #
  • Does anyone like chuggers? #
  • Oooo, someone has given me a recording of me on BBC Breakfast… does anyone know if putting short clips on YouTube is acceptable/tolerated? #
  • My Mac has started making an odd squelch noise rather than 'ping'. What has happened? #
  • Sorry to those who are getting bored by my #sw11tweet Tweets, but I know people are on at different times of day… #
  • Remember no tweet is complete unless it mentions #sw11tweet http://twtvite.com/dqew7k – if you know anyone in Wandsworth, let them know too! #
  • Just in case anyone is thinking about it – don't waste a Total Politics vote on my blog, I've opted out so it won't be counted. #
  • Real ego here. You can see Shami and me at http://tr.im/tvDE #
  • Thinking about: CCTV and civil liberties http://tr.im/tvYH #
  • Feeling uninspired. I'm even lacking doodling inspiration. #
  • Why is everyone RSVPing 'Maybe' rather than 'Yes' to #SW11tweet? What will it take to swing you into the 'Yes' column? #
  • Feeling tired, a little achey, and seem to be developing a sore throat. It can't be, can it? #
  • I was stopping live-tweeting council meetings, but need to share that this meeting is dreadfully flat #wwcnl #
  • Flat flat flat flat flat. Relying on Nick Cuff to liven things up at the #wwcnl meeting. #
  • Great line from Nick Cuff: "social housing should be a launchpad, not a destination." Absolutely. #wwcnl #
  • My joy at the council meeting finishing early is neutered by getting home to find @jesscousins is half-way through the Sex & The City Movie. #
  • Take to the streets and rejoice, @alncl has been freed. in reply to alncl #
  • Joy. Monkey Island is available for the iPhone. Don't expect to hear from me for a while. (thanks to @abeeken for telling me) #
  • In case anyone is wondering, Monkey Island on the iPhone is fantastic. #
  • Now I must head to the Town Hall. If only it were Governor Marley's mansion… sigh… #
  • Thinking about: A bi-partisan approach to surgeries? http://tr.im/tFTH #
  • Got a sore throat and a cracking headache for the second day, why does the media make me such a hypochondriac? #notswineflu #
  • Garrrrrgh. Didn't save my progress on Monkey Island… Then lost the autosave by starting a new game. Curse you God, for making me this way. #
  • Love how Labour keep pointing out the Cons vote in Norwich North has dropped a couple of thousand, ignoring the the 15,000 they've lost. #
  • Thinking about: Weekly wrap-up, 24 July http://tr.im/tQuR #
  • The Norwich North by-election isn't good news for Labour in Wandsworth http://tr.im/tRgg #
  • I normally hate bot-followers, but sometimes I love them, for example @zx_spectrum, who gave me this gem http://tr.im/tRpm #
  • Thinking about: What Norwich North means in Wandsworth http://tr.im/tRxL #
  • Playing with Adobe's Kuler http://tr.im/tSHk just wish I had some practical use for it… #
  • After a few years of being fairly dispassionate I'm enjoying politics again – but was I as delusional in 1996 as Labour activists are now? #
  • Getting a bit bored with my avatar again so I'm going to ask the Twitterverse to help. What image should represent me, and why? #
  • I really shouldn't be a slob today, but it's going to happen. Tonight, pizza and alcohol are my friends. #
  • Connected up the DVD for the first time in two years. Glass of wine and first series of Spaced awaits. #
  • Astounded how bad quality the DVD is – being spoiled by HD. #
  • Finished confusing everyone by replying to tweets from last night. Now time for some work. #
  • The numbers for #sw11tweet are growing, slowly but surely, are you going? http://tr.im/u55H #
  • I owe an apology to @zx_spectrum for suggesting they were a bot follower yesterday. Actually they are a mortal fellow believer: follow them. #
  • Prompted by @thepickards and idle curiosity, what's the mildest swine flu anyone has seen reported? #
  • Just got spam disguised as a Daily Dilbert. I read the cartoon before deleting, so it was partially successful. #
  • Enjoying #torynutjobs. Perhaps we should start a #labournutjobs of bad/humorous Labour appointments? I'll start with http://tr.im/u6i1 #
  • Stricken by the nagging doubt that there's something I've forgotten… #
  • "Shortly after filming, Lynn and Dave moved to nearby Cleethorpes. They are happy in their new home." Oh that all endings could be so happy. #
  • Think I might get addicted to Living's paranormal offerings. I get to laugh, shout at the TV and shake my head pitifully in equal measure. #
