  • I really should have better things to do with my time, and I do, but I've been indulging in ego-Kemp folding anyway http://bit.ly/5g4YWS #
  • Think I've managed to escaped a 'Wheels on the Bus' loop of death. #
  • If you are wondering what a Wheels on the Bus loop of death is like, here's a sample: http://j.mp/4UxQLx #
  • My only complaint about the #oneshow is that is immediately followed by Eastenders misery. I always get caught out. #
  • I notice Boris got a wrist slapping for a political tweet. We wouldn't want people realising that he's a politician, would we? #

  • At a Wandsworth Council meeting. It is lacking spark this evening. Clearly the end of a long year. That and no @PiersMcC! #wwcnl #
  • Now discussing the Tooting Together scheme, hopefully this will liven things up. #wwcnl #
  • Broad agreement has broken out, good contributions to the Tooting Together debate, but still not a lively meeting in Wandsworth. #wwcnl #
  • Does anyone use anything other than WordPress for blog (and even multi-media) type websites? #
  • Should clarify, I meant to ask: are there any decent alternatives to WordPress for self-hosting? #
  • Was hoping for a productive day today. Wasn't planning on said productivity being the result of fixing a toilet cistern. #
  • Toilet fixed. Delivery taken. Builders in situ. Now to get down to actually working… well, maybe after lunch. #
  • According to the Guardian http://bit.ly/7p5qfF Michael Ancram claimed for the "emptying of a sceptic tank". Do UKIP have armed forces? #

  • Blogged: Battersea’s election gets a fourth candidate http://bit.ly/6ied15 #
  • Now I'm finding myself reading Acts of Parliament. If I'm must get distracted and procrastinate, why can't I do it in an interesting way? #

  • A fine collection of Wandsworth officers & councillors in a charity quiz – not spending time on inspections http://twitpic.com/syd27 #

  • I know this is a cheat (@ Battersea in London) http://4sq.com/Sdr4A #
  • Just received some plaudits for some work I did months ago (and is reaping benefits). Totally removed any tired grumpiness I was suffering. #
  • I try not to ego-RT, but there's a great story behind this one: RT @wandbc: Rogue builders foiled in £16k OAP scam http://bit.ly/7wVRx2 #
  • Blogged: Council & Police Utd 1 – Con men 0 http://bit.ly/4NZLLO #
  • London Zoo hold 14,665 animals. They don't know the sex of 13,811 of them. http://bit.ly/4CjnXr #
  • It's worrying that the topics of public debt and Battersea Power Station can so quickly descent into anti-EU diatribes. http://bit.ly/85SLVt #
  • Blogged: Weekly wrap-up, 11 December http://bit.ly/5i4g6I #
  • The Ocado man should be on his way here – I wish he'd hurry up, he's got my dinner in his van. #
  • Got two free books of second class Christmas stamps without Ocado order. But wasn't last post for 2nd class in July or something? #
  • It's too early. #
  • I can't decide whether I'd prefer a bell-tower or an orangery. #
  • Anyone using Kiwi beta? Finding it hard to trust an app that doesn't use OAuth nowadays. #
  • RT @mazlaws He was from grimsby. Apparently czechs can't get jobs there. I don't know why he told me this. I don't know why i'm telling you. #
  • Does anyone know if it's possible to 'merge' Google Maps into a single map? #lazyweb #
  • Hmmm. 'Let it snow' – is it odd that on hearing it my first thought isn't Christmas, but Die Hard (or Commando II, as I prefer to call it)? #
  • 7pm on Saturday – and I'm playing with National Statistics Datasets. #
  • Hmmm. So Tories seem to be thinking the polls are good for them. And Labour think the polls are good for them. Can I use #GameOn? #
  • Feeling mildly bad as I let @jesscousins fetch me a drink without offering to help. #
  • My thoughts are skipping Christmas and going straight onto New Year's resolutions. #fb #
  • Oooo, you can win a TV from Martin Linton by going to his website, downloading and printing a form & sending it to him. http://bit.ly/6z6BwZ #
  • Playing Dragon's Lair on the iPhone, a good port, but I'm now remembering what an awful arcade game it was. #
  • Thinking of booking a sleeper train. Is it sad that I'm quite excited by the prospect? #
  • Why is everyone tweeting about X Factor? I thought it finished last week, are they stringing it out with specials? #
  • Ignore my last Tweet. I was confusing it with I'm A Celebrity. But all reality TV is pretty much the same, isn't it? #
  • Stripping X Factor tweets from my stream I'm left with the @iaindale and @kerrymp spat. Makes me think the X Factor isn't so bad after all. #
  • Playing Dragon's Lair is fun, and used to love it when it was a groundbreaking arcade game, but I can't believe how bad the gameplay is/was. #
