  • Blogged: Tweets for week ending 2009-11-29 http://bit.ly/5MNqFo #
  • I actually like the new Tweetie split between RT and a via quote. They serve different purposes. #
  • It has a touch of the Lib Dem 'Can't Win Here about it: "Fox News makes the best pie chart: ever http://bit.ly/6LnDVc" via @bengoldacre #
  • Blogged: Crime briefing, 19 – 26 November http://bit.ly/6U8FTw #
  • Ah, so I now discover the Tweetie 2 RT complaints are because it doesn't work, as well as a dislike of the native RT method. #
  • Apparently I'm a bhuna: strong flavours, little sauce, straightforward, honest & cuts to the chase http://j.mp/5kYzcN (ht @alexlefley) #
  • ReelDirector on sale in the App Store. Can I resist any longer? Or shall I just surrender to my addiction? http://j.mp/8gXN82 #
  • Should I shave? It's the last day of Movember, so perhaps I can get away with some light stubble. #
  • Ticket for the event I'm at tonight advises "Dinner announced at 8pm". Does that mean it will be at 8, or they'll just be teasing us at 8? #
  • Well, fate and the table plan haven't been as awful to me as they might have been. Mainly council colleagues. #
  • It is, sometimes, hard not to think you are just a cash cow for the Conservatives! (So says the first round heads and tails loser.) #
  • Say hello to Cllr Piers McCausland. I will have him on Twitter before the night is out. http://twitpic.com/rmfk0 #
  • Finally set up @PiersMcC: say hello to him – if he gets Twitter he'll be a great follow. #
  • It's December, so it's probably acceptable to put up decorations and play Christmas songs – I know *everyone* has been so restrained so far. #
  • Google Wave seems to have an iPhone optimised site (if you plough in through the 'not supported' warning). Might actually play on it now. #
  • Ah, @PiersMcC, your non-sequitar tweets are what it's all about – keep it up! #
  • Blogged: Ken Clarke and the Kings of the Jungle http://bit.ly/7qgCom #
  • More importantly, are Santa's elves allowed? – "Council apologises over gnome removal request http://bit.ly/6mr4bk" /via @24dash #
  • 'Robbie Williams Racing' is new in the App Store. Even with my addiction I will be avoiding it, it'll only encourage the Take That turncoat. #
  • I think Atebits are spot on with this: "@neillyneil http://support.atebits.com/faqs/tweetie/new-retweets" via @atebits_support #
  • And it is good tea: "Hamish Johnston, Northcote road has full stock of bellevue tea again" /via @BellevueTeaLady #
  • Lots search for 'James Cousins' on my site: "Your Letters Why would you search for Google on Google? http://ping.fm/4aXXK" via @BBC_magazine #
  • Not been feeling terribly engaged with Twitter today. Not sure if that's my fault, Twitter's, or you. Yes, you. #
  • Going to hang around with firemen now. About the only time @jesscousins will ever be jealous of the stuff I do as a councillor. #
  • Blogged: Battersea Power Station exhibition http://bit.ly/7hJ61o #
  • Perfect for non-Corrie days: "RT @itvcorrie: Explore Coronation Street on Google Street View http://bit.ly/7FLX9l #corrie" /via @jesscousins #
  • The London Fire Brigade at work! Would you answer the door? http://twitpic.com/rtnlm #
  • Blogged: Fire safety visits http://bit.ly/56Tkj1 #
  • Heading to an 'Advisory Panel on Tackling Worklessness'. Wishing it were called something different. #
  • Even in this weather the Power Station is magnificent http://twitpic.com/ru0qu #
  • What type of sick hotel leaves bowls of licorice flavoured humbugs in its meeting rooms? #
  • It was a matter of time. But I'm now subject of a Kafkaesque inquiry. I think I may already have tweeted too much! #
  • Blogged: Tough on crime, sensitive to the data protection and human rights of criminals http://bit.ly/7XLwJI #
  • Blogged: 19 Lavender Hill… the beginning of the end? http://bit.ly/4C23p1 #
  • And will someone write a reply to it from me?: "Can someone please write a tweet for me? #verylazyweb" via @pigsonthewing #
  • Local paper doesnt know difference between forums and blogging shock http://j.mp/5NQuCr #
  • Finally leaving the Town Hall, at 10pm Perhaps I should get a proper job, any offers? #
  • Spent a chunk of this morning thinking it was Saturday. It isn't, is it? Because I should be somewhere if it is. #
  • That's my email in-box cleared. No-one email me. #
  • MiniMe is snoring loudly during his nap. Sorry, future Mrs MiniMe. #
  • Ooooo, baby. Do you know what that's worth? #importantpopquestions #
  • Just bought MiniMe his first shoes. Won't be long until he's out until all hours, coming back drunk and treating the place like a hotel. #
  • Blogged: Weekly wrap-up, 4 December http://bit.ly/4FkPvM #
  • This is strangely compelling: RT @prgeek: [Blog] Am I the last person in the world to discover 'Kemp Folds'? http://bit.ly/6LoLNh #
  • Is there anything more contrived than the fake typing while the automated assistant 'checks' your details? #
  • Holy Cow. Just caught the opening 90 seconds of Eastenders and already feeling suicidal. #
  • ran 3.28 mi on 5/12/2009 at 7:09 AM with a pace of 8'26"/mi

  • 9:45, nearly canvassing o'clock. Oh joy. #
  • Canvassing with @PiersMcC. We are well-oiled electoral machine… and I don't mean that in the drunk sense. #
  • Good canvass and good (if long overdue) news from Wandsworth http://j.mp/6lwHOD Now we can concentrate on residents, not targets. #
  • You don't see art like this enough – dogs playing pool http://twitpic.com/s8bsz #
  • What an idiot I am, fancy expecting to be able to make a call on O2 at Clapham Junction? #
  • Just done a stint with the police, fire brigade and council's community safety team at Clapham Junction Asda. http://twitpic.com/s8il2 #
  • Hold it. Town are 1-0 up. What? How? I feel the need to rub my eyes in disbelief. #
  • Oh, Dagenham have equalised… but for nearly 25 minutes of play Town were ahead. That's something. #
  • Stuck waiting for the plumbers to finish rather than at the Wandsworth Christmas lights. Fate doesn't want me having mulled wine this year. #
  • Looking at Chapman's Pond on Bing's birdseye view. Those in the know will know that it's bottomless. #
  • I'm still enplumbered. It's Saturday and I want a drink, but because other people are working in the house find myself compelled to work. #
  • DIY shopping. Really don't want to be traipsing the aisles of Homebase and B&Q, but @jesscousins will attest I'm hiding it pretty well. #
