(06:12:41) @Tactless_Claire Morning, Claire. And, indeed, good morning @ClaireatWaves. A pair of Claires :)

(06:14:24) Good morning. Bit bleurgh (mainly due to a late night) but at least I've figured out how to get http://t.co/Yf0cVo1m working again. JAMYEH!

(06:16:01) @miz_shake68 @JQP74 Morning you two :) It's Friday. That's really quite splendid :)

(07:18:46) @BitsyVonMuffin @BaronHawkey You can be sure I take my role as Pervy Councillor as seriously as everything else in my life. If not moreso ;)

(09:34:34) @ms_howard Uhoh :/

(09:45:47) @riggwelter Now THAT's what I'm talking about. (Although strictly speaking it's original #Chicagohouse, not #acidhouse :p)

(09:46:37) @riggwelter @StFrancisLuton 303 at 10.30 .. you might be onto something there.. ;)

(09:59:52) http://t.co/0CoWpy7q - @Riggwelter I'm ~so~ there ;) (Caustic on my Galaxy S - fun for a bit of noodling, but not during the sermon. Oh

(15:48:17) @smartie999 @Dappydoris You can be sure it will be irradiated. Please keep well clear of my snozzle though ta ;)

(16:12:30) @Matildamouse Oh bless him!

(17:30:45) @brennig @poots Creme eggs.

(17:39:58) Has anyone suggested panic buying cheese yet? Perhaps something for @CathedralCity to mention in their next tweet?

(17:40:37) I need to wrap some presents for Beth.

(17:44:05) @Ariadnes_web I'm living in hope... nobody's noticed I'm not very well yet ;)

(17:44:26) @PlainTalkingHR Heh. One of them is both unnecessarily big and unnecessarily heavy. And quite possibly unnecessary :D x

(17:44:52) @TheDailyEmma You may be charged by two different water companies; one to deliver it and one to take it away. :/

(17:58:45) @TheDailyEmma Gosh. Hope you can get that sorted!

(18:13:19) @BaronHawkey Get, indeed, in.

(19:36:09) @AlexGFox They're for Beth.. and I in no way represent the male of any given species :D

(19:37:10) Comedy time. No Charlie Brooker bit on 10 o'clock Live.. darn babyings ... now it's Millicano

(20:45:01) @PlainTalkingHR Night, Bina :)

(20:48:03) I want a hardware random number generator in my house. For science. http://t.co/otaSO7ab Actually, I could use my daughter's bedroom.

(22:01:45) I gave myself a rather nasty cut on my right foot using a toenail on my left foot. I'm falling to bits :D Time to cut my losses.. nighty!

(09:08:20) @emmathegardener @KarenCannard hahaha.. I think I've had to do that more than once, too :D

(09:09:01) @BitsyVonMuffin I shall have some celebratory

(09:30:25) I've got a man round, having a look at my Outlook calendar conundrum. You can call me Jamie Two-Calendars

(09:31:58) When I think of the word "sunshine" I always hear it as Liam Gallagher sings it in "Cigarettes & Alcohol" - with three syllables. #oddbrain

(09:34:00) @Dappydoris I'm off tomorrow.. today I am a-workin' :) With a slightly lighter heart than yesterday. How's you, lovely?

(09:59:46) @Dappydoris I say hello back, and ask it if I can come round to play sometime :D Used to cycle to Herne Bay on days like this :)

(10:00:19) @helerelereno And not just me, either, thankfully #solidaritygratitude

(10:03:54) @fridgemagnet2 not on a pushbike, though..

(10:14:56) @Dappydoris For some reason, I always had more of an affinity w/ HB. You've got me yearning again :D http://t.co/V4TdDALD for UK domains

(10:39:46) @Dappydoris JAMYEH! (http://t.co/8dRHNA0j ;) x

(10:41:43) @LilyShambles I never gargled, I never gambled.. I never smoked at all :D We have got the greatest hits of Rolf in the car.. LOVE THOSE CDs!

(11:06:13) @poots @Dappydoris Oh no! I'll get that fixed :)

(11:53:21) @poots @Dappydoris Oh dear.. I'm going to have to try and find the original files from the mac when I get home. D'oh! :D

(11:56:29) @LilyShambles I keep getting a phone call on my mobile from a number in Manchester.. ETA Claims, apparently. I may be entitled or something.

(11:56:54) I tried to childproof my home, but children STILL GOT IN.

(13:49:30) @Dappydoris @poots I'll get it back up and running, and all should become clear :)

(13:49:39) @streakmachine It's only right and fair :)

(14:08:26) @cyberdonkey That looks LOVELY!

(14:23:23) @newshamracing You might find you've got wee in your tank.

(14:23:39) @crabbyknickers What

(14:30:45) @Dappydoris It can take a while - it is your local ISP's DNS that needs to be updated, but also worth closing & re-opening your browser too.

(14:39:26) @Dappydoris Happy to help.. at the moment, I'm getting nothing.

(14:40:07) @mostlygeordie Gah. Imperfect timing :/

(17:18:20) @vobes It was great to see you, mate! Hope the trip was worthwhile :)

(17:36:06) @vobes I'll keep hoping for success :) You deserve it, mate.

(17:37:05) @poots It's a lovely place to be. Nearly home, though, which is just as good :) x

(19:38:47) Bit tired now.. but I shall perk myself up for the BIG show later. In under an hour's time. Heavens.

(19:39:19) RT @BritishTechNews: The BIG Show is in 2 hours with @ErikLanigan @SarahJaneUK @Syzygy @AlexGFox and @EwenRankin http://t.co/kLWJmg0U - ...

(21:41:05) @T_Northernbloke Not being sarcastic.. just no time to help.. been a crazy week. Sorry.

(22:20:38) Right.. definitely going to bed now.. made it through the BIG show without too much typing noise* and a bluetooth headset. Night!

(22:21:20) @T_Northernbloke All good. Night!

(05:26:26) Good morning. Up comes the sun. Time for me to brush my teeth and avoid meetings (this will not work) A bientot <- insert your own accents..

(06:13:38) @crabbyknickers Morning lovely. Minty fresh - and I made it to the stretch limo in time :D May I wish you an exquisite Wednesday, please?

(07:05:10) @joanneh234 A treat for the other parents, I'm sure ;)

(07:06:15) Bleugh. North Circular broken again.. another interminable trundle to work in the stretch limo...

(08:01:44) @leica0000 YYYYEEEESSS

(08:01:59) @JQP74 SPLENDID :) #Happydays Have a good one.

(08:02:27) Objective for today: cope.

(08:03:53) @BitsyVonMuffin Good morning, Liz :)

(08:31:21) @joanneh234 If those Dads are anything like me, they're more concentrating on making sure they don't take the PE kit home they're carrying!

(08:31:44) @BitsyVonMuffin Not feeling 100% today. Probably more 33%. Going to try Coffee Therapy ;) x

(08:31:58) @willowHart I've been taking vitamin D daily for about 3 months.. it really helps! Except today ;) x

(08:32:19) @sharonlangridge Thank you :) I've put them on my desk - saving them for a mid-morning boost :) :) x

(08:32:59) @crabbyknickers @joanneh234 I'm really impressed as well - those cukes are looking ~good~ Must water my sunflower seedlings!

(08:33:36) @Littlebit_Bod A reputation for being lovely, I'm sure. Do you go in and say "The usual, please" ? ;)

(08:33:54) @GHOGIT Now brush your teeth.

(08:39:38) @crabbyknickers @joanneh234 I'm living in hope, too! (Even moreso, since these are seeds from a packet of bird feed.. tragic, eh? :D)

(08:39:51) @BitsyVonMuffin Thank you, lovely *BIG HUG* x

(08:46:34) @joanneh234 Photos or it didn't happen :D

(08:47:20) @willowHart Manchester Square is lovely - nice and shaded :) I may well do! xx

(08:47:40) @crabbyknickers @joanneh234 Speculative sunflower growing. It's the future ;)

(11:20:56) Not having the best of days. Still.

(11:21:21) @Dappydoris @crabbyknickers @joanneh234 @smartie999 That's really useful to know.. I shall make a trip specially! :)

(11:56:42) @Ariadnes_web Thank you :) I've made it as far as lunchtime :) And it's sunny out...

(11:56:51) @Zararugosa Thank you, lovely :) x

(11:56:59) @LilyShambles I will try turning it off and on again.

(11:57:22) @sharonlangridge Doesn't often happen, which makes it a bit weird when it does! Thank you for being so lovely to me :) x

(11:58:35) @joanneh234 Thank you :) It has improved by that tweet already :) x

(11:58:41) @sharonlangridge *big hug* x

(12:10:42) @willowHart If I had a dairy that I used, I would probably end up lactose intolerant.. :D

(12:46:45) @fandrews Yup :) :)

(12:47:03) @willowHart No. No I don't. And I'm not sure I am :D

(12:55:00) @mostlygeordie very bless you :) x

(12:57:16) @crabbyknickers @Dappydoris @joanneh234 @smartie999 82-92 Horsefair, apparently :D

(13:04:31) I'd like to spend the afternoon in Poundland. Or just outside.

(14:08:16) @vobes Yup - it certainly is :) I can email you the number if you don't have it (or your screen's gone fizzy!), though :)

(14:09:13) @Dappydoris @smartie999 @crabbyknickers I have treasured my dibber from its first insertion... I'm feeling a little inspired. I have a plan.

(14:50:00) @wkdstepmother They're doing diesel at the post office now? :/

(14:50:29) What's all this about pasties? Pastys? Patsy? RICKEEEEEEE?

(14:51:12) @Dappydoris @crabbyknickers @smartie999 To be honest, I have a lot of difficulty keeping the birds off my seedlings. MOST frustrating.

(14:51:42) @biscuitnose That made me snort with laughter :D

(15:13:24) @JQP74 @miz_shake68 Aww... she wasn't even popping by to visit me, either :/

(16:26:40) RT @debsylee: Twitter admits 'unfollowing bug' - Telegraph http://t.co/HONdqfiH #SocialMedia #Tech via @bonzotweet @SteveBomford

(16:28:07) @smartie999 @crabbyknickers @Dappydoris @joanneh234 Yeah! I'm SO going to twitpic my dibber when home (I may have before but nobody noticed)

(16:28:55) Heading homewards. One more day of work this week.. I just hope I can have the temerity to turn off my work mobile...

(16:29:50) On the upside, @errolin has given me a copy of the Ferengi rules of acquisition to read on my way home. What a thoughtful crew member.

(16:32:20) @claw0101 Gosh.

(16:33:51) @Lycan33 Well you've certainly shown some in asking - it's a bit like audacity, except with less audac and more temer.

(16:34:56) @claw0101 To be fair, the Arnie version rates highly in the films that I've watched, but this could be something special. It could. Be.

(17:21:05) Spam call from 01614783073.. "ETA Claims" - http://t.co/rn0CwB18 is a handy site to know..

(18:02:30) RT @JamesBushTHFC: Ok Twitter... A guy left his bag in my wifes coffee shop today, Costa Waterstones Hastings, his name is Alan Naylor. ...

(19:33:14) @GHOGIT It's definitely a 'watching' thing :D Have you been to the beach yet?

(19:35:36) @T_Northernbloke oh yes. Loads.

(05:25:09) Good morning. Better see what format Tuesday is in. I think it might be a .ZIP

(05:25:20) @JQP74 Mornin' early bird. Or early bloke.

(05:27:32) Both Beth and I have unexplainable finger injuries. I have a 7mm cut on my pointy finger. WHAT IS GOING ON? (Please check your fingers).

(05:30:16) @leica0000 Heh.gz :D

(05:30:34) @JQP74 YARRR! Short week for me, bonus :) Have a great one, too :)

(07:07:32) @Matildamouse I thought he was more of a Velcro man.. :D

(07:08:24) @poots @wkdstepmother @PlainTalkingHR Good morning lovely ladies :) It was chilly first thing.. I'm sure it'll warm up :)

(07:09:10) @mostlygeordie hurrah for full finger integrity. I, however, will never be correct ;) Good morning lovely! x

(07:10:09) @Tactless_Claire Morning to you, too. Hope you're finally out of the shower #notaprune

(07:11:11) Finally.. The walky bit. Seems to get later every day :/

(10:16:06) Hmm.. I feel a bit sold short.. my Dilbert calendar hasn't got a March 27th.. it has another 22nd instead.. http://t.co/rRkS2v2N

(11:42:14) On a conference call. It might be my first meeting of the day. Might.

(12:49:28) Dave Pearce. WHY?

(12:49:53) @claw0101 It would have been fine, but last Thursday wasn't too much to write home about...

(12:50:50) @claw0101 Heh. It's just like the film (actually I can't remember what happened, but that sounds about right :D)

(14:32:23) @RobJD Just what I needed! Thank you :) :)

(14:41:51) @BaronHawkey mate - are you unwell again..? I fear you are working too hard :/ Hope you feel better soon.

(14:43:56) @ms_howard yay! You have done well - and are obviously in good underlying health :)

(16:33:12) @RobbieOn Quite, quite odd!

(16:33:44) @Dappydoris It is ART :D

(16:36:18) The end of another crazy busy Tuesday workday. No Salford for me tomorrow (boo.. I'd hoped to stalk @claremac82 :D) but it's OK.. meetings!

(17:53:59) The M1 northbound from J9 is woefully broken.. starts with a bump and gets worse. J10A towards the airport isn't much better. Best avoided.

(18:18:18) @fiverscarrot Ouchy! Hope you can sort your nails out without any more mishaps :/

(18:19:19) @PlainTalkingHR Seriously long delays - looked almost stationary towards J11 :/ Some days are like that.. :/

(18:20:03) @fiverscarrot Yup... :/ Nearly home now, though. Nearly.

(18:40:35) @PlainTalkingHR Finally :) Took the shuttle bus, which took a while :) x

(19:19:25) @SimplyTanny So do I.

(19:20:02) @vobes We would've had a FAB time :) Just heard your appearance on @lloydbayley's show.. you are like two peas in a pod!

(19:21:03) @mostlygeordie It was amazing to be able to see Venus even before sunset!

(19:21:14) @SimplyTanny BOTH :D

(19:21:47) @neek71 Mawkish, a little.

(19:22:49) I liked an @YouTube video http://t.co/tjgHpajI Give It Aldi - Drive Thru

(19:23:00) RT @CharAvell: Check this! @OmarRaza doing Aldi advert! Smashed it http://t.co/2LeyU9HK

(19:23:56) @GHOGIT I saw a message on our company message board saying "Any other Luton Town supporters in Salford?" :D Those guys get about ;)

(19:24:03) @vobes CHEERS!

(19:24:30) @smartie999 I will ravish for marshmallows.

(19:25:03) @RuthBlackett Cracking.

(19:27:50) @smartie999 Not sure how much of a ravish you'd get for two marshmallows :D

(19:29:18) @vobes Thank you.. I'll shortly be off to do the ironing. Funnily enough, I'm in London on Thursday, too - fancy an amble to Monmouth St..?

(19:30:58) @perrygascoine That's horrible! I didn't see the car repairs.. the police were still on the scene, though :/

(19:31:11) @smartie999 You're on (again) :)

(19:31:40) @mostlygeordie Oh totally.. and Venus is set to get even closer in the next couple of months.. amazing to think it's millions of miles away!

(19:32:11) @claremac82 I may have some signs to put up ;) x

(19:32:44) @fiverscarrot Nail clipping is well behind, technology-wise :)

(19:33:16) @fionajc3 I would like to read it, so yes please :)

(19:33:49) @willowHart @SimplyTanny I am dimple free. But I have vague freckles. They're quite cool (I think)

(19:41:13) I'm very successfully putting off the ironing.

(19:42:50) RT @danscotton: We launched our new site today, and this is how it looks on all of the devices we test on. http://t.co/ELuiTsJ6 #rwd htt ...

(19:43:33) @rachelcreative LOVE that colour :)

(19:44:15) @fiverscarrot I've looked.. it's far too hazardous :D

(19:45:01) @PlainTalkingHR Definitely. Well, ironing time :D

(19:45:23) @willowHart @SimplyTanny That is a GOOD look :) :) :)

(19:45:57) @vobes Excellent.. shall we say meet there at 1.30pm, then?

(19:46:55) @kingfamily Me too. I shall go for a shower, first, then iron wearing my jammies :D My day? Hectic, and there's another one tomorrow ;) You?

(19:47:38) @SimplyTanny @willowHart Not sure you've got all that much to worry about, beauty-wise :) Me? I have more of the 'inner beauty' look :D

(19:48:57) @fionajc3 A perennial problem, Fiona - our daughter has a party on the 22nd.. still touch and go whether it'll actually be any good! :D

(19:49:48) @fionajc3 (I totally sympathise.. and we ALWAYS try and reply to invitations as soon as we can.. just takes a quick text!)

(19:50:02) @kingfamily Fabulous :) :) :)

(19:50:17) @tamarakuzminski COOL! :) :)

(19:50:50) @OmarRaza That's because you're the best. The best Aldi advertising man by far. EVER*

(19:51:50) @kingfamily Wow... a blessed day indeed (and one to savour, for not every day is as good!) I've got Friday off.. bonus long weekend yay!:) x

(19:52:09) @PlainTalkingHR Night lovely - see you in the morn! x

(20:48:03) @sallymari hello :) I tend to wear brightly coloured shirts to work.. kinda like a trademark; not too keen on the colourful crinkled look :D

(20:53:53) @sallymari PS I'm following you, too - no doubt thanks to @brennig, as well! :)

(21:08:45) Niiiight :)

(08:04:17) @PlainTalkingHR Thank you :) Have a great Monday too! I wish the same to @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother

(08:05:21) Good morning. A sunny school run, and I can't help but feel a little schadenfreude when I see cars parked selfishly getting tickets :/

(08:06:54) @eriklanigan TEN HOURS between those tweets..?!

(08:27:26) Conversations with Lenni on the way to school included "You make your own luck" and "History is so much more massive than technology".. :)

(09:46:10) @miz_shake68 heehee.. I think I have that to come :D

(09:46:25) @lloydbayley Good morning, Lloyd! :)

(09:47:11) Trying to resist the temptation to wash the car.

(09:47:37) @willowHart You had rusks and didn't offer me one!? *tuts* ;)

(09:50:14) @leica0000 hahaaha :D

(10:50:02) @sfdrummer I did. Remarkably good bit of exercise, actually... even folding the hose up at the end is no small feat for a weed like me :D

(10:50:21) Seriously hungry now. NUMS.

(10:51:08) @FinalBullet Up North is SO much more friendlier (on the whole) - did you get a chance to picle the journey? If so, how do I find it? :)

(11:46:41) @ms_howard Can you get some sushi smuggled in?

(11:46:47) @mostlygeordie I crumbled :/

(11:48:16) @FinalBullet Ahh :/ How does Picle compare to, say, Audioboo or Cinch? Shame there's not an Android version.. I'd love to try it..

(11:48:34) @mostlygeordie It's gone to work with Beth :D At least it's getting out and about ;)

(11:50:13) @TomKei In almost all these situations, it's not as bad as you fear. But you'll get out the other side. Try to stay in good humour...

(11:50:44) Going to top up my caffeine levels, I think.. impromptu conference call at half-one...

(12:08:21) @TomKei If you can speak privately beforehand - as you say - it might work best... hope you can get it sorted, mate.

(12:57:14) @claremac82 Where have you been? Anywhere nice? (I couldn't find you to stalk you ;)

(12:57:50) @ms_howard Good luck! :)

(13:09:36) @corrie_corfield @ms_howard I'm betting she'll be under for a while now... #prayingforeverythingbeingOK

(13:17:29) @claremac82 Ooh bit warm. Although it was quite toasty here, too ;)

(13:25:57) @TomKei That's reassuring. You deserve a satisfying hot beverage :)

(15:01:53) @helenduffett Best I can do is ~snigger awww~

(15:02:01) RT @helenduffett: Three baby squirrels just fell out of the tree above me http://t.co/hIffSi2U

(15:03:01) @joanneh234 @JQP74 Hello you gorgeous people :) Hope you've had the windows open and the sun shining in. And a breeze blowing :D

(15:08:46) @JQP74 Fantastic! I'm down in my office, which only has a little window, but it certainly works ;) Enjoy! :) :) @joanneh234

(15:15:48) I love the automatic transcription of YouTube videos.. it doesn't ~quite~ work properly.. http://t.co/OQGsCBpD http://t.co/Cr1GHk0U

(15:25:46) @Mizzuks About 18 miles west south west. Head ~away~ from the sun. Or go somewhere nicer. I like Dorset.

(17:29:58) @joanneh234 @jqp74 That is SO cool. Which reminds me.. need to water my sunflower seedlings :) I've finished work for the day.. exhausted! x

(17:30:47) Right. That's it.. down tools. I'm all worn out now. I think something toasted with honey on might be just the ticket. A fish finger, maybe.

(17:43:26) @linseyt Does that mean I need to go anywhere near Greggs Wallace? :D

(17:43:37) @ptomtom48 I'll put one on for you, sir :)

(17:55:10) @shellzenner I've got 19 games on the go at the moment. I have no idea how :D

(19:39:12) @smartie999 @joanneh234 @jqp74 Yes. Yes it is.

(21:44:18) @brennig Ouchy. I'll not be far behind you. Late as always. Night!

(21:47:57) Right. Off to bed now (a bit late, as always). Sleep well, when you do - and that includes you, @Ms_Howard. Please try, at least. Night!

(21:54:30) @PlainTalkingHR Night night Bina.. this is quite late for you! (and me!) x

(13:05:11) @joanneh234 Sounds like a quite tolerable way to spend a Friday. Wish I could join you :D

(13:11:23) Having some freaky behaviour where my work calendar has split. Like a two-celled organism. Quite spooky. Should I clone myself..?

(13:11:34) @joanneh234 @JQP74 I am SO there :D

(13:20:34) @Wymroyal I'd try doing two things at once (working double time, served concurrently :D) but I'm a bloke.. doomed to failure ;)

(06:12:58) @vobes Morning :) Yes it is!

(06:19:02) @painted_duchess Well, I quite liked it to start with. And I can link you to probably my favourite YouTube video of the year? OOH! KARAOKE!

(06:19:42) Good morning. I have ten minutes to finish configuring nagiosgraph before I have to leave for work. I think I'll leave it. Broken :D

(07:25:06) @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @stopsleyvicar YEAH! I can see it from my hurtling position ~points~ Have a lovely one x

(10:12:50) I am drinking full sugar cola this morning. This will not end well.

(10:49:50) @alnicholl77 White no sugar, please. Real coffee if possible ;)

(11:26:11) @painted_duchess It's a rather aggressive interpretation of dubstep. Purists dislike it rather. Ponies are good, though :D

(12:21:41) All the mugs in the cupboard were plain and white. I had a sharpie in my pocket. I couldn't help myself. http://t.co/QezcAzPJ

(12:53:19) @joanneh234 Let me be the judge of that ;)

(12:54:21) @streakmachine Hmm.. I wonder if I'm playing too much Draw Something :D

(12:55:05) @joanneh234 (it comes off in the dishwasher ;)

(12:56:24) @brennig It's the only smiley I can do :D As for sharpies in my pocket... I was going to write on a pile of papers that was left on a desk..

(12:56:31) @AlexGFox :D

(12:58:29) @joanneh234 I met my wife while buying graffiti supplies #truestory

(12:59:09) @alexgeoghegan HA! Funnily enough, I often show I'm pleased to see someone by writing "HELLO!" on their head with a sharpie. @brennig

(13:01:49) @joanneh234 Aww. Amazing where love can blossom :)

(13:16:31) @alexgeoghegan Now that is VERY clever. But not really advisable, right.. ? /cc @brennig

(13:18:28) @_forky That sounds BRILLIANT. All I did is write on a mug.. I bet you've transcended that! :D

(13:20:48) @_forky Brilliant :D

(14:10:38) @linseyt Critical mass of Daves. Ooh.

(14:32:10) @gilliandonovan You do too much cool stuff that I don't get to see.

(14:32:24) @fridgemagnet2 Very sensible. I think critical mass is 1.

(14:32:33) @Mad4mogzz Yup. That fits the bill!

(14:35:53) Interesting.. this is near us. Occasionally a bit stinky, but hey.. I work in London, which smells most of the time http://t.co/pdMg7JDP

(22:48:50) Off to bed with me - always great to have a natter with @EwenRankin @sarahjaneuk @eriklanigan and @tioaboa #BritishTechBIG night night!

(23:23:07) @warriorgrrl Loved your singing on @MarkRock's Audioboos (and yes, I have the same trouble with audioboo on my Android phone ;) Thank you!

(06:10:13) @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @stopsleyvicar Good morning at this nearly jamesish hour :D

(06:11:20) @Pewari Ow! I hope there's nothing to show for it :/

(06:11:42) @fridgemagnet2 That's not very... entropic.

(06:12:24) @claremac82 *cries* @Sk287

(06:12:54) @LordGibbon Morning. Doesn't get much more vernal than this...

(07:03:34) @Pewari Wow! I walked (at a leisurely pace) a mile and a half yesterday evening.. that's the best I can muster in response :D

(07:04:44) @lloydbayley Yeah!

(07:05:15) @LordGibbon It was a good day (certainly in terms of nature!)

(10:13:01) @BritishTechNews hahahahaha! Beth will save the NHS :) :D

(10:13:59) @poots @BritishTechNews saw this on the BBC website this morning and wondered if you were about to save the NHS http://t.co/rPQZ6BbC

(10:41:26) I'm still not sure what a Certified ScrumMaster is. It sounds a bit clammy.

(10:44:09) I need scratch mittens.

(10:54:08) @LilyShambles Nah. Keep sticking my finger up my nose #TMI :D

(14:06:30) @RobJD *sighs* I'm suffering from scope creep :D

(14:11:53) Stopping. Now going again.

(14:54:50) @emsquare_d That's a tricky one.. you need a left/right splitter.. but some electret microphones have plug-in power, too.. eep!

(15:00:32) @emsquare_d Not sure that can be done easily, since the splitters will be stereo, rather than L+R :/

(15:25:58) @emsquare_d Fantastic :)

(15:29:21) @BitsyVonMuffin me neither - but yes I have :)

(15:31:08) I have brought my pipe to this meeting.

(15:55:41) @miz_shake68 Yes. Yes I do. :D @JQP74

(15:56:35) @BitsyVonMuffin My day has been full of meetings (about 6) so haven't managed to do anything else :D How about you? x

(15:57:09) @thatsjustme0 I'm not allowed to light it (and anyway I'm not a smoker :D)

(15:57:52) @streakmachine I was pondering using only a French accent throughout :D

(15:58:16) @LilyShambles Yes, but last time I wore them there was hilarity... :D

(15:58:44) @BitsyVonMuffin Awww :) A good day - worth it I'm sure :)

(15:59:03) @smartie999 @BitsyVonMuffin I insist upon it :) x

(15:59:17) One more meeting before I get to go home.

(17:28:40) @LilyShambles it would leave me feeling somewhat cheated :D

(17:29:16) @smartie999 @BitsyVonMuffin Please Judy.. I want some more. #Oliver

(17:29:43) @thatsjustme0 (I'm not. I'm barely a man :D)

(17:31:12) Hometime. The stretch limo drivers have bright green ties to wear. And grey shirts. I have no sartorial intelligence but that's not right..

(17:31:48) @thatsjustme0 I think @poots finds me anything but intriguing :D

(18:24:48) @smartie999 Scuttle!

(18:25:25) @brennig ~pushes you gently out the door~

(18:27:11) @PontoonDock ~loves Canterbury in the spring~ #goesabitwibbly

(18:28:19) @LutonNewsSteve Careful now! A few years ago, a massive tree was felled right across our garden... oops!

(18:28:42) @TheDizzyMama I am sure she is - she has a fine role model in you x

(18:29:03) @TomCampbell Oh. I hope I catch your eye anyway.

(18:29:44) @brennig @alexgeoghegan ~makes a careful note, to be sure~

(20:25:43) @PontoonDock Hahaha! Brings back so many memories... the smell of McDonald's on the breeze.. :D

(20:36:18) @PontoonDock Yup.. 20 years ago, nearly... amazing times - phenomenal people and stories I could tell if could remember any of them :D

(20:56:37) @PontoonDock I am itching to see the new Marlowe :) It's actually been quite a few years since I last visited.. soon again I hope!

(21:23:56) @miz_shake68 I'm 'playing' (a combination of scribble and fingerpainting) as syzygy_uk if you fancy a go! :)

(21:24:21) RT @TeamESRacing: On offer is a pair of VIP tickets to spend the race day with the team and get to see behind the scenes, head to http:/ ...

(21:26:38) @JQP74 @miz_shake68 I like her already :D

(21:32:59) @JQP74 There's no point in playing #WordsWithFriends if one cheats - the fun is in the creativity :) @miz_shake68

(21:36:23) @miz_shake68 :) I'm not doing terribly well this evening.. quite scribbly :D

(21:48:45) @miz_shake68 @JQP74 YEAH! :D

(22:03:26) @Doctoe I like that :)

(22:03:44) Right. Time to try sleeping. I hear it's impressive. Night!

(06:51:49) @JoOstermeyer They can bring you coffee. They should bring you coffee. They must.

(06:52:25) @Zararugosa It is! (For the time being :)

(06:52:50) @mostlygeordie Good morning (Tuesday exception)

(06:54:21) @JQP74 Morning :) Happy days :) no more commuting?

(07:14:26) @joanneh234 You're on - I'm happy to sit in the boot ;) @miz_shake68 @JQP74

(07:53:22) @JQP74 @joanneh234 @miz_shake68 I'll bring the towels :D

(07:55:00) @joanneh234 Have you had the others shipped off..? :D

(07:55:29) I wonder how much work productivity is lost by crap transport infrastructure...

(08:13:03) @JQP74 :D Thanks, dude - gonna catch up with the games now.. Not much else to do stuck in traffic!

(08:13:41) @GHOGIT The North Circular isn't far off that :D

(12:21:20) @joanneh234 I will behave. (NOT)

(12:21:42) @joanneh234 It's certainly a way to spend the morning... Can I watch? @smartie999ha @jqp74 @miz_shake68

(17:38:39) @Sk287 I totally know how you feel ;)

(17:39:53) @Sk287 PS I hope you took good care of @claremac82 today - she's a delicate flower ;)

(18:20:13) @poots Fabulous news :) Hope to have a good catch up when I get home (eventually!)

(18:24:29) @CharlieHP @timoncheese @EyupLeigh @mrwilliam Why do I not get to do things like that at work?

(18:24:45) RT @sitcomgeek: My friend Hannah has gone missing. Seriously. This is her: http://t.co/OL2vFl8m #missingperson

(18:25:12) @streakmachine I find the same works with ELO's Mr Blue Sky :)

(18:25:23) @akbea I'll sponsor you.

(18:28:54) @streakmachine Welcome :) Enjoy!

(18:29:33) @adam_mart Ehhhhhh that is COOL :)

(18:56:05) Wow.. another majorly clear night (or dusk at least). This is my all-time favourite weather at my favourite time of year. #natureisbrill

(18:56:59) @akbea I haven't told you where I want my logo to be, yet ;)

(18:57:57) @EyupLeigh @charliehp @mrwilliam The perils of working with @timoncheese, I fear :a

(19:14:17) Home and warm. Lovely.

(19:15:11) Probably being a bit thick, but I'm struggling to work out how Venus & Jupiter can both be in the western sky, just above the sun. #research

(19:17:40) @smartie999 Yummy yummy

(19:44:31) @Dappydoris I love being by the seaside (or nearby!) for just that reason :)

(19:46:30) @GHOGIT Spot on.. just saw this.. http://t.co/9Io4hdAO - and it's beyond the sun. A long, long way away :D

(19:46:59) The answer to why Jupiter is just below Venus in the current night sky.. it's beyond the sun: http://t.co/9Io4hdAO

(19:53:50) @Vizzzz Hey... I'm into syzygy ;)

(19:54:10) @smartie999 *gets out a cotton bud*

(19:57:29) I just got clonked on the head by a clothes hanger #notsobright

(19:59:32) @mostlygeordie Heh - undoubtedly (although @chepbourne might disagree ;) Hope you've had a top day!

(19:59:54) @smartie999 absolutely frantic. I even had to run to the bus stop. In ~these shoes~!

(20:00:34) @willowHart I was rummaging in the sock drawer at the time (so about 3 feet) - made a great 'thoink' noise :D

(20:05:42) @willowHart I was bending over for a good rummage :p

(20:07:45) @willowHart Socks! :P

(20:12:06) @ptomtom48 All neatly lined up in order.. Mercury and Venus one side of the earth and Mars Saturn, Jupiter and the others on the other :D

(20:25:34) @smartie999 They are SO me!

(20:26:44) Note to self: hazelnut yoghurt tastes (a bit) like petrochemicals.

(20:28:11) @ptomtom48 I'll look out for it. With my big telescope :D

(20:38:39) @mostlygeordie Yes. Early nights when still out are impractical ...

(20:40:39) @fiverscarrot Beth doesn't think so. Maybe my tastebuds need calibrating :D

(20:41:23) @paulwebster That's a good point.. I'll check the ingredients. 11% kerosene.

(20:43:32) @JQP74 Yes please - especially if I can share a bit with @joanneh234 ;)

(21:21:15) @LilyShambles I was a hungry student.

(21:26:36) @MissyMWAC Just stick words like 'probiotic' and 'active' in the blurb and you can get away with anything ;)

(21:59:25) Ooh. "Entropy in Linux is viewable through the file /proc/sys/kernel/random/entropy_avail and should generally be at least 2000." #linux

(22:00:39) @joanneh234 We'll start with fingers and end in spooning - how does that sound? (hoping @JQP74 shares!)

(22:01:05) @PlainTalkingHR My only concern is: do they do them in my size..? @smartie999

(07:10:12) Good morning. I'm doing science this morning. Well, making coffee...

(07:46:21) @BeachHut81 Good morning to you. And maybe @pennynash

(07:47:12) @JQP74 Mornin' John :) A great weekend, thank you - hope yours has been fab, too. It's almost definitely my go. Spent yesterday driving :D

(07:47:53) @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @stopsleyvicar Morning :) Hope it's a great week for us all :)

(07:49:57) @BaronHawkey Mornin' mate :) There's a carefully prepared heated suspension of C8H10N4O2 waiting for you in a ceramic delivery receptacle ;)

(07:56:34) @smartie999 Yes. Yes I am. Now where did I put my glasses? Oh. I don't wear glasses.

(07:56:53) @BitsyVonMuffin Good morning Bitsy. Hope you're shakin' it this morning :) @smartie999 @BaronHawkey

(07:58:25) Right. Need to douse myself and then propel myself at nearly lightspeed into the week. I'll be all mashed up when Sunday comes back around..

(08:04:42) @AnnaClare_ Ooh did you go? We had a great time at @BigBangFair, too. I'm sure it's possible to wrap science into, well, everything outside!

(09:47:16) @stu4art Have a great day! You deserve it :)

(10:12:26) And there was I wondering why I don't watch soaps... death and doom lovely :/ #cheerupbritain http://t.co/WtqE0myg

(10:32:25) @AnnaClare_ Absolutely. Especially given how long it took to queue and go in to the Bang Goes The Theory show.. but fun, yeah! @BigBangFair

(10:33:02) @BaronHawkey @BitsyVonMuffin @smartie999 But who's got the fallen Madonna..? :D

(10:33:44) @vobes I'm really enjoying hearring (and reading) about your adventure - and your research! :)

(10:35:22) @crabbyknickers Not tempted to do a taste test? (Depending on the height up the trousers where the muck is, obviously :D)

(10:36:25) Ooh! Ooh! Gotta check out the Humperdinck. #eurovision (more eurovision tweets will be at @eurosyzygy ... MUCH closer to the time :D)

(10:57:11) @Mad4mogzz It's actually a very passable song, and a good performance... have you heard it yet? :) http://t.co/wNTDnbGu

(10:58:14) Yeah nice one, Englebert. Passable. Gets a 3/10 on the #MyLovelyHorse scale.

(11:13:25) @brennig *bows* Thank you :)

(11:55:28) @vobes I feel a bit doomed about the IT teaching that's going on at my son's school :/

(11:55:58) @lloydbayley Sorry! But yeah.. it is a bit catchy! Happy birthday from.. well.. when you recorded your Recent Ramblings :)

(11:56:11) @smartie999 @baronhawkey @bitsyvonmuffin *wah wah wah wahhhhh*

(12:49:58) @fridgemagnet2 That would be great - I'll consult the Oracle :)

(12:51:22) Hungry.Underestimated the cooking time of lunch. Having some @CathedralCity and crackers as a hors-d'oevre (Fr.: Riding a Horse to Dover)

(13:28:57) @BitsyVonMuffin Ohhhhhh yeah :) Toasty tastic!

(13:36:03) If I was Umberto Eco, I would insist that my surname be pronounced twice, with the second one just a bit quieter.

(13:38:58) I can't win it, but this is SUCH a good prize: http://t.co/XQLmyEKg - @Corrie_Corfield and @KathyClugston's Slanket Of Con (for @Twitrelief)

(13:55:21) @linseyt Heehee.. should I admit to having had the opportunity to wear it, too? (Or do you now want your money back? ;)

(13:59:52) I've added a video to an @YouTube playlist http://t.co/Ue1yVfos Vytautas Mineral Water! It's Earth's Juice!

(14:10:08) @emmathegardener And bright red - WIN :)

(14:20:09) @linseyt Chilly chilly! Definitely ideal slanket situation :)

(16:56:33) Well done @TeamESRacing and @newshamracing - top spot at today's #BTCC Driving Really Quickly Around Alicia Silverstone Challenge.

(17:09:16) @ThreeUK It's worth its weight in gold.. although I'm not going to tell the kids I'm connected.. they'll hammer it with YouTube ;)

(17:11:01) I've just invented "Wolfercise" - where you get exercise from being chased by a wolf.

(17:11:46) @TemplesMinistry If that happened to me, the song would be mainly mumbling.

(17:12:17) @caterham7 I haven't thought this through, have I?

(17:18:55) @riggwelter Our internet goes through your house #AICMFP

(17:26:55) @riggwelter (Our internet came back when you tweeted about power being restored) #AICMFP = And I Claim My Five Pounds (b3ta meme of old!)

(18:10:29) I've been told that using mobile internet in a public place is as inconsiderate & rude as leaving dirty socks on the lounge floor. Really?

(18:12:18) Using mobile internet while ~walking along~ in a public place is as inconsiderate & rude as leaving dirty socks on the lounge floor. Really?

(18:13:01) @poots I'll check it with the internet. Bellowing into a mobile phone is more like the sock thing for me.

(18:21:36) @willowHart Bless you.

(18:22:55) @willowHart You're most welcome. It's not been the best day in the world, but the sun has been shining and I've made it to the end (mainly!)

(18:23:02) @willowHart How about you? x

(18:27:01) @willowHart No pumpkin either, I hope ;) I hope you have a splendiferous evening, too :) x

(18:46:58) Right. That'll do for work, I think. The internet's back up, at least...

(19:15:11) I'll be listening to #TintopTuesday at 8pm http://t.co/fIUpW6Si (on a Monday!) to hear about the Fast Driving Around Silverstone thing #BTCC

(20:08:32) Listening to something approaching radio at @TinTopTuesday - they need a sound engineer :D #TTTT

(09:01:25) @pewari Drawsomething just went rogue - I clicked 'river' but it selected 'shaq' (whatever one of them is)... I drew a river. Oops! Sorry!

(09:02:02) @JQP74 Mornin' John :) Hope you have a good one despite the dampitude!

(09:03:17) Bit damp. Discount dampness.

(18:59:55) Just sent some good karma over the internet. It's been a lovely weekend, and we've had some good service.. it's only fair.

(19:20:24) I'm still impressed that Beth was one of the first 85,000 users of Twitter. I can only claim to be within the first 1.5 million...

(19:23:17) @BritishTechNews http://t.co/Mcb9fC6p ... go on - I'll be interested to find out!

(19:23:37) @arronclaydon http://t.co/2dPTUq4W :)

(19:24:05) @Zararugosa I beat her onto Google+ #hollowvictory ;)

(19:24:56) @BaronHawkey Oh no! I'm sure there are ways to improvise. Using a microwave and a housebrick #notagoodidea

(19:25:17) @mostlygeordie *wafts some more your way* Had a good one? x

(19:25:39) @MissyMWAC @claw0101 Yes. Yes you do.

(19:29:22) @BritishTechNews @arronclaydon Wow.. mine was 1,448,621 ... we must have registered within days! (Five years ago today, for me!)

(19:29:37) @Zararugosa I haven't found a use for it yet.. :)

(19:30:35) @arronclaydon An account I registered last week is number 514,115,820 .. half a billion registered users! No surprise due to spammers, mind.

(19:31:17) @arronclaydon @streakmachine @ajlanghorn I never had the coffee in the end. But my goodness it would've been good ;)

(19:35:04) Looks like Tim Kring's done something bonkers again.. World premier of "Touch" on Tuesday 20th at 8pm #touchonsky http://t.co/iBYdBxcS

(21:42:34) @smartie999 Oh you'll be fine. Get your head down, missus! Night ;) x

(22:11:18) @LilyShambles @lloydbayley NIGHT! :D

(22:11:34) @brennig On Mother's Day. Works for me.

(22:12:47) I do believe it's time for me to draw a veil over proceedings for the day. This veil looks like the fake grass on a butcher's counter. Night

(22:13:25) @brennig Ello :) I'm tired out, but not s'bad. I appear to have an unquenchable thirst, though. That's quite odd, right? *checks google*

(22:15:50) @brennig I like the idea of both, but I might opt for the former (less preparation time!) Hope you're having a fantastic SXSXEWWSXESXW

(11:28:42) The thing I think I like best about the Big Bang Science Fair is the exclamations of surprise and impressedness when something cool happens.

(07:35:13) @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots Thanks, Bina! A very happy #FF #followfriday to you, too :)

(07:35:49) @lloydbayley Ooh! Niiice :) Have a top banana Friday night :)

(07:36:25) @JQP74 Morning John :) Oooh Guinness - y'know I think I will :) Have a top one!

(07:36:47) @miz_shake68 @JQP74 morning' miz!

(07:38:42) @_forky @BaronHawkey @horsylover73 @MammaTort @Beangirl @PervyWilbury @painted_duchess @cee_eph thank you! happy blimmin' Friday :) :)

(07:39:50) @handlebarnose I shall! Sounds like perfect elevenses material (only 3 hours 21 minutes to go :D)

(07:42:23) @joanneh234 @miz_shake68 @JQP74 I'll do my best :D

(08:03:59) @gilliandonovan Are you actually at Western? Might pop up & say hi if so :)

(08:08:03) I like my days lightly fragranced. With a Rolf Harris soundtrack.

(08:08:35) @JQP74 Yeah!

(10:17:14) @handlebarnose I have to confess to snaffling a couple of toasted muffins and honey ;)

(10:17:39) @PlainTalkingHR A challenging morning so far, but I'm making progress - albeit a bit slow :D @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots

(10:39:34) @JQP74 YAY! :) Thanks, mate.. I'll have a game when I get a mo.

(13:39:49) @Dappydoris In style.

(16:43:48) @mostlygeordie *blows a #FF kiss* (if such a thing is either appropriate or possible)

(17:17:56) Down tools. For another week. It's all blinkin' comin' togetha...

(17:28:02) @HQvoice Very jammy :)

(17:29:19) Quote of the day: "Idiot." - @claremac82

(17:36:34) @claw0101 It's not 'huh', it's 'what'.. also @MissyMWAC doesn't know the ~meaning~ of the word "queue"..

(17:42:52) @HQvoice It's the best kind of doughnut. Except for custard. Mind you, your voice ~is~ quite custardy (that was intended as a compliment :D)

(17:44:36) @MissyMWAC We have a special word for a line that forms outside a gents' hairdresser, too - it's called a barberqueue. Mmmm bacon. And ribs.

(17:45:59) @HQvoice Ooh! Exotic ~makes a note~

(17:46:50) @BlueMoon_11 Oh sweetheart.. again.. ? Please rest well and feel much better soon x

(17:53:02) @BlueMoon_11 ~big hug~ Stay in bed all weekend. You deserve it. X

(17:54:19) @HQvoice You are the crème (d')Anglais ;)

(17:59:06) @MissyMWAC Oh for sure, A decent BBQ will often include ribs ;)

(18:06:44) @MissyMWAC I ~know~ you're right :)

(18:36:15) @yellow757 CTRL ALT and Up arrow (or down) - or it might be CTRL SHIFT and Up arrow.. it's been a while!

(18:37:24) @Brays_Cottage That is SO neat :) I love peregrines!

(19:27:26) @Purple_Sand Joking right? :/

(19:59:17) @Purple_Sand Well. Means I'm in with a shout at "Approachingly adequate Dad of the year" :D

(21:07:37) @thatsjustme0 Cheers! ~raises glass and winks~

(21:59:12) @CymraesCoch Happy weekend :)

(22:00:02) @MissyMWAC I think he made an exhibition of himself :/

(22:18:25) @PlainTalkingHR @TheDizzyMama Off to bed myself - so good night to you both xxx

(22:19:31) Orf to beds. ~waves an enforcement notice~ night night then.

(06:21:50) @TomCampbell Really now.

(06:21:59) @AuntieJammy Good morning :)

(06:22:17) @claw0101 I know that feeling! Mornin' mate.

(06:22:36) @lloydbayley @vobes Good morning/evening fine podcasters both!

(06:23:00) @Zararugosa Good morning :) Hope it's a straightforward visit :)

(06:23:28) @sharonlangridge Morning, Sharon. Body clocks. Darn them. Darn them to heck.

(06:24:18) @TomCampbell Dear Ofcom. That Tom Campbell, though eh? Love from me.

(06:25:02) Good morning. Time to make myself scarce. Much like the giant panda but with a slightly better diet. Zoooom!

(07:29:03) @TomCampbell All the best presenters get in trouble. And @jonholmes1.

(07:29:58) @AuntieJammy I will be eventually :D Only 0.75 of a meeting today :) Hope your Thursday looks good and that you've got the hang of it :)

(07:30:36) @JQP74 And the very same to you, my handsome pal. Have the best day (despite the mistiness!)

(07:30:57) @JQP74 PS your go #WordsWithFriends

(07:31:40) @lloydbayley Listening to your recent ramblings.. haven't discovered whether the lizard made it out of the air conditioning. Cliffhanger!

(07:35:40) @jonBCFC hope you feel better soon, Jon.

(07:36:04) @claw0101 :D

(07:39:03) @smartie999 It's a tiny car. How hard can it be?

(07:39:42) The coach driver is still listening to The Foo Fighters. This will be day 3.

(07:40:18) @joanneh234 Morning Miss :) Sleep well? @JQP74

(07:41:56) @lloydbayley D'oh! Have you considered using a vacuum cleaner as a lizard catching apparatus? (mesh on the nozzle to prevent it going up!)

(07:46:08) @PlainTalkingHR @wkdstepmother @Bazmati2020 Morning Luton Superstars :)

(07:46:26) @poots Good morning beautiful wife x

(07:48:43) @joanneh234 Exactly that happened to me! I really should go to bed earlier. Or go back to bed now ;D @JQP74

(08:10:27) @AssuredGrave Noo.. that was taken. I'm syzygy_uk

(08:11:49) @poots Ahh sorry I missed you. Could you zap the car as you go past, please?

(10:35:45) The message from our printers when they've finally deigned to spurt out a bit of paper. What does it MEAN? http://t.co/Yc7ktKiJ

(13:44:00) So far today I have had my mobile phone stop being a phone and another thing happen that I can't remember. Quite a peculiar day. I think.

(13:45:54) @BitsyVonMuffin @PervyWilbury @_forky @smartie999 @TomKei Good afternoon. I'm a redshirt today. Like in Star Trek.

(14:48:14) @BitsyVonMuffin *BLOWS AN ENORMOUS BLUE-SKY KISS* @PervyWilbury @_forky @smartie999 @TomKei

(14:48:38) Going for a pedantry. No a pediatrician. No.. perambulate? Something like that.

(15:38:58) @BitsyVonMuffin @smartie999 @PervyWilbury @_forky @TomKei *warm hug* I am a bit warm, actually.

(18:52:49) I would like formally to apologise to @Pewari for the last drawing I did on @WeDrawSomething. It really is sehr, sehr schlecht.

(18:54:07) @claw0101 I have so far resisted, but I've heard excellent things about it. Wireless synchronisation is the winner for me :) :)

(18:54:40) @JQP74 @joanneh234 @smartie999 Can I come?

(18:56:17) @claw0101 Splendid :) I shall look forward to your findings!

(18:57:34) I'm home. It's good to be home. I can recommend it (please give notice and ask Beth nicely).

(19:01:59) @Pewari It's a logo. Not a very good one.

(19:32:14) @Pewari Yours was brilliant - I love your drawing style (do you have an iPad, by any chance?) I'm doing it on my phone. Finger painting! :D

(19:32:46) @Pewari And, indeed, d'oh! How frustrating. Not sure it's possible to recover from that one. Although a streak doesn't really mean much..

(19:34:52) @streakmachine If I see the Cathedral City has bites taken out of it, I know where I'm gonna look ;)

(19:36:53) @Dappydoris I tried to dye my hair purple. Came out orange. Never again.

(19:37:21) @leica0000 That's clever and funny. Although I've never had it.

(20:11:15) @Pewari It varies between my iPod Touch, my Galaxy S and my iPhone :D Unfortunately the quality of my drawing doesn't vary.. it's woeful ;)

(20:13:35) @Dappydoris I like purple and I wanted to show it. This was when I was an engineer... as a 'manager' purple shirts must suffice...

(20:44:26) @Dappydoris I try and do that anyway.. but I may well take the plunge. What's the worst that can happen? #careerlimitingmove

(20:45:14) @BaronHawkey @Dappydoris Seconded!

(20:50:09) Preparing for the @BritishTechNews BIG show at half-past nine. Mainly by trying to stay awake :D

(20:50:25) @_forky :)

(21:07:28) @willowHart Oh if only.. :D I'm nibbling chocolate covered coffee beans (in the absence of any rusks ;)

(21:07:48) @CymraesCoch Oh. Oh dear :/

(21:11:50) @willowHart I just need to sustain this rush until 11pm :D

(21:12:08) @Jetski237 Nice metadata.

(21:23:01) @Pewari :) :) I absolutely LOVE your pictures - each is a work of art!

(21:23:49) @willowHart If you hear my forehead hitting the desk, you will know I have discovered it's not :D

(22:18:39) @willowHart Hahaah.. I draw like a spider with its legs tied together :D x

(22:26:33) @willowHart Heh.. no - I draw on my iPod touch with my fingers :D

(22:56:04) @SharonWoolich I'm going to follow you on that basis.

(23:03:57) An entertaining and animated show - excellent stuff. Thank you, @EwenRankin @sarahjaneuk @eriklanigan and @AlexGFox (and the chatroom!)

(12:16:13) MT @alaindebotton http://t.co/K6rqrAi7 <- good thinking.

(12:28:07) Just been sent some questions about a system I look after. One of which was "I assume you ate the system owner?" THE RUMOURS ARE NOT TRUE.

(13:41:00) @streakmachine And braised. Yes.

(13:52:32) @GHOGIT Have you tried turning it off and on again?

(13:52:51) @GHOGIT (You could try removing the SD card as well)

(13:57:57) I just wrote an email that included the words "Pato Banton" three times.

(13:59:24) @GHOGIT Gah.

(17:30:12) @fiverscarrot Everything tastes better with chutney. FACT.

(17:32:34) @brennig He pioneered lightweight pop reggae in the Dublin area.

(17:33:06) @andytuk I barely made mention of the CD collection of Bob Marleee

(18:07:08) @LilyShambles Yes. Yes I am*. @beershowjimmy

(18:07:46) @AnnaClare_ 22%

(18:08:17) @willowHart I like food, baby.

(18:09:25) @fandrews Steady! If you're on the 17.48 from Stoke On Trent to Euston you can have my seat :)

(18:10:18) @JQP74 oO! Mercedes!

(18:11:11) @AnnaClare_ Don't take my word for it. Twitter is duty bound to provide you with an appropriate average percentage ridiculousity value ;)

(19:02:09) @mostlygeordie I shall have a shower when I get home - sorry!

(19:03:04) @MooseAllain did you spend quite a while scrabling about for it on the floor?

(19:03:25) @fridgemagnet2 Numpties.

(19:06:43) @Sk287 Me too. Darn it - forgot to give you a backrub. Next time?

(19:07:33) @CymraesCoch Hang in there! Make Cardiff realise you own the place x

(19:09:20) @smartie999 @crabbyknickers Would you mind terribly if I gave you two a massive Twitter hug? You're the BEST in the internet.

(19:16:24) @Sk287 All good :) I always really enjoy spending the day with you guys.. Even when Victoria's there ;) Next time a shoulder rub for sure! x

(19:16:59) @fridgemagnet2 be careful what you wish for.

(19:17:52) @smartie999 @crabbyknickers I was only after a little nibble - I've had next to nothing all day :D

(19:18:18) @fandrews Ohhhhh! So close!

(19:18:51) @willowHart I would never turn down a rusk, if that counts?

(19:23:01) Quelle domage! I'm playing six games of Draw Something and nobody's made a move this whole coach journey home. Limited word selection, mind.

(19:25:07) @goitsagch Ha!

(19:26:08) @Kimtins Go on then. Every time I top up I get about 150 texts. I'm currently running at about 1,100 :D

(19:26:37) @fridgemagnet2 You're supposed to be having steak.

(19:27:36) @producerlaura happy birthday to you and your sister :)

(19:31:15) @BaronHawkey Hope it's soon, mate.

(19:34:46) @smartie999 You're such a tease! @crabbyknickers is LOVELY and should be encouraged :) x

(21:27:17) I am sure it is a well-known fact (or not) but is Greggs the sausage roll shop owned and operated by Gregg Wallace? It would make sense.

(21:30:30) @claremac82 I insist upon it. That smeary spoon of jus just doesn't cut it any more.

(21:32:38) @leica0000 Probably explains why I feel so uncomfortable going in there :D

(21:33:18) @mostlygeordie Stand still - I'll hose you down (hosepipe ban permitting)

(21:36:10) It sounds like there are jinks of a medium to high nature going on next door. Playing Risk or watching Chelsea. I am headed bedward. Night!

(10:21:45) @TraceySmith Ello :) I have no idea how it goes.. apart from quickly. Never been busier... how about you? Still rocking the free world?

(10:22:00) @helenduffett Vince The Weatherman has some dark chocolate digestives. He's a good man.

(10:22:30) I think I might have to ask the birthday girl (@Leica0000 - happy birthday!) for some help with this report.

(11:01:22) @SimplyTanny Oh I definitely do - thank you, @leica0000 !

(11:01:39) @leica0000 I have two 11am meetings, so I shall come and see you directly afterward :D

(11:05:46) @helenduffett It was fine (with sunny spells). Winds light to variable...

(12:37:45) @njh I'm afraid I'm in meetings until I have to dispatch myself for Salford :/

(12:39:03) @mostlygeordie *throws a lifebelt*

(12:43:32) @mostlygeordie I would blow my money. Although I would probably get told off by Beth :D

(12:43:49) @willowHart you won't get scurvy :)

(15:08:20) I'm on Jessica Varnish.

(18:22:43) @errolin Indeed.

(18:23:07) @mostlygeordie Oh definitely. You only get one go at life :)

(18:23:32) Settled. Well. Still working.

(21:11:50) I would like to make it clear that I am NOT going to light it up like it's dyn-o-mite. Because it's "dynamite". And it's very explosive. BAH

(21:12:17) @shellzenner This will not end well.

(21:24:44) @willowHart Sometimes it is RUBBISH at updating. Also I am rubbish at drawing :D

(22:35:50) @shellzenner @airadam13 You can tell a look from a look :D

(09:25:10) Awaiting the arrival of Some People. In the meantime, I am wrestling with a scanner that has its own ideas.

(09:26:22) Oh, and good morning.

(09:30:41) @thatsjustme0 How's your writing going? I can offer you some more words: morsel, cavalier, robust, pulchritude.

(09:30:56) @mostlygeordie Mornin' :) Still up north? :)

(12:24:46) I am SO horrendously badly organised. That is all. Lunch and work now, though.

(14:56:47) @thatsjustme0 Of course. It's what I do ;)

(14:57:10) @brennig Afternoon, mate :) Hope your travels become untroublesome.

(14:57:46) From conference call to crisis meeting. On the phone. I may actually get some work done. But it's unlikely...

(18:07:57) @dt90spt *waves back, if a little belatedly*

(18:34:23) Right. That'll do then. Otherwise I'll end up working for, like, forever.

(19:34:34) @sarahjaneuk Have fun!

(20:00:16) @streakmachine Me too.. but I'm convinced I can see the outline of the clock that's displayed in 'screen lock' mode :D

(20:00:47) @fionajc3 It's been a while, hasn't it! Doing OK, thank you - crazy busy 2012 so far. And you? x

(20:03:09) @streakmachine I think it is OLED, yeah. Serves me right for leaving it on charge and not switching the screen off :D

(20:06:33) @streakmachine Might try that.. even wearing :D I'm not too fussed.. just a little surprised I hadn't heard about it before :)

(21:09:45) @streakmachine Oh heavens, they were awful - especially screens with standing information :D No resale value at all ...

(21:10:20) @fionajc3 Yup... it's all going off here - I'm up in Salford quite a bit, and now there's a major move in central London. What about you?

(21:47:24) @lloydbayley Mornin' Lloyd. Your turn to enjoy the day - I'm off to bed :D

(16:18:05) I have a feeling there is something I should be doing. Rather annoyingly it's more than likely ironing. I'm stayinh here till it goes away.

(16:30:59) @_forky I even mistyped the tweet. THAT is how discombobulated I feel :D x

(16:31:22) @thatsjustme0 CREAM. TEA. Two very, very good words, especially for a day like today :)

(16:31:30) @brennig Ello.

(17:40:46) Calpol doughnuts. They're the future.

(17:54:13) Christopher's Sunday afternoon project - making some @SortedFood doughnuts. Not bad at all for a first attempt http://t.co/iy6JVfRH

(17:54:41) MT @poots Only my children could start naming six quarks and end up naming seven dwarves. / I mean.. "Comedy Quark"..?

(18:01:03) @thatsjustme0 Oh wow! They look GORGEOUS! Thank you for sharing them ;)

(18:01:46) @alexgeoghegan It's a prog rock album title (I think)

(18:02:22) @_forky VLC player is brilliant - http://t.co/AWthCMHx :) :)

(19:00:44) @fiverscarrot Not too shabby - I think we had the oil too hot, because they cooked rather quickly. Lesson learned for next time, though! :)

(19:26:57) @thatsjustme0 :) :) I hope you're making great progress on the 10,000 words!

(22:11:48) @sarahjaneuk Sounds great :)

(09:48:59) @lloydbayley I know that feeling (except for the going to work bit :D) Oh - sorry I haven't replied to your email.. crazy busy week :/

(09:49:22) @longball @claw0101 @clothheadhq I thought you could unretweet a retweet?

(09:49:53) Morning. The children are playing "AdventureQuest Worlds". For some bizarre reason They Might Be Giants are there.. http://t.co/e1zOFff4

(09:54:01) Audioboo: Is a record played at 3 rpm art? http://t.co/RmrDxpDD via @Audioboo / @Dt90SPT / Radio 4's Today Programme

(09:56:52) It's the @LutnScienceFair today - we're going to be there, Science is everywhere, but mainly in Luton Town Centre. (12-4pm)

(09:58:13) @amnotfunny :) :) :)

(09:58:50) @daisythom I think the bathroom may well be the best place for you right now. With some lemsip and some of that pink stuff for your tum.

(10:23:06) Downloading Windows 8 consumer preview thing. For @nxmee to play with.

(10:23:27) @smartie999 @Audioboo @Dt90SPT I think it is, too. There are some really cool installations - went to one in Bexhill last year. Amazing!

(10:41:24) RT @sanjar_satsura: 1 sperm has 37.5MB of DNA information in it. This makes the act of impregnation equivalent to a 529GB per second ddos

(10:52:16) I've added a video to an @YouTube playlist http://t.co/SR8Q8YzD Markets of Britain, a short film by Lee Titt (

(10:54:06) @theilppodcast Thank you! :) :) I'm afraid I won't be at the awards.. I would love to go, though.. might see if I can hoodwink my way in ;)

(13:15:53) The children with their DNA bracelets - Lenni has a carnivorous plant on her wrist :D @LutnScienceFair

(13:18:44) The children with their DNA bracelets - Lenni has a carnivorous plant on her wrist :D @LutnScienceFair http://t.co/soSm8fIr

(15:45:46) Home from an interesting afternoon at @LutnScienceFair - I saw three 'first time' things: DNA, an electron microscope & a really cool robot.

(15:47:47) @daisythom Are you feeling any better now? Keep those fluids coming...

(15:48:40) @Dappydoris We had a top time :) They had fluffy bug things.

(15:49:16) Having a sit down now. Sit downs are brilliant.

(16:13:22) @willowHart o no! I hope you get another one soon!

(20:05:18) Enjoying the hospitality of the mighty @dt90spt & @jn2n - lovely people :)

(06:24:43) @crabbyknickers @smartie999 Morning early birds!

(06:28:14) @nausea18 I did that for a bit. iPlayer.

(06:28:46) @vsopfables I really hope you own a cat.

(06:29:10) @TheDizzyMama Aw.. :/ I hope it goes well xxx

(06:29:21) @AnotherJulia Morning. For the first time. Yeah.

(06:29:55) Good morning. Listening to topical satire - Newsjack on Radio 4 extra. Not quite as chucklesome as "It's Not What You Know" - which is top.

(06:30:09) @kingfamily Morning lovely :) Sleep well?

(06:30:18) @PontoonDock My legs haven't switched on yet.

(06:30:28) Uhoh. Need to zoom.

(06:44:05) Just saw my Dad. He does that.

(06:47:08) @JQP74 Is it Friday? I'm not even sure I'm alive at the moment.. have a great day!

(06:47:54) @paulums A very happy Friday to you too - dig deep.. nearly the weekend!

(06:49:11) @kingfamily Never long enough, but moderately deeply. Not sure about how I'd measure width :D Have a good day x

(06:49:35) @PeachyPics Thanks lovely :) #ff

(07:11:40) @poots I got beeped by an 03 Volvo at the top of the hill - saw a grinning beardy face. 85% sure it was him :D Have a good day! x

(07:12:09) @vsopfables morning :) Hope there are more chuckles today x

(07:13:05) @PontoonDock Daleks are disappointing. And rather aggressive. Only so long till they put one on Strictly. Or The Only Way Is Skaro.

(07:13:49) @TheDizzyMama And you have a weekend for her to recover :) Bless you both (and Keira & Mr Dannielle, naturally :)

(07:14:10) @JQP74 I'll give it my best shot :D You too mate!

(07:15:15) @vsopfables fantastic! Let the celebrations begin (and the end of the sellotape be easy to find ;) x

(07:16:08) I've decided it's Dubstep Friday. I'm sure my colleagues won't mind.

(07:20:11) @JQP74 Yeeeeeaaahhh! ~wubwub~

(07:20:49) @streakmachine Good point. One of my team has a subwoofer. I'm sure he won't mind ;)

(07:21:06) @vsopfables Ooh harsh :D

(07:21:49) @vsopfables I'm at the age where if I get candles on my cake it's done in decimal coding.. how many tens, how many units :D

(07:26:16) Autocorrect on my Android phone hi-jacks my laughing smileys. These actually happened "... car :Dealership" and "...brilliant :Disguise" !?!

(07:43:39) @Mad4mogzz Morning :) Cool!

(07:44:14) Ohhhhh Lordy.

(07:44:56) @BaronHawkey nice work, sir! #ff

(07:47:36) Wow - excellent posters by @38_degrees about the damage that could be done to the NHS ( http://t.co/PfAXBz0V )

(07:48:39) @alnicholl77 Well indeed. And lay off the Bruce Springsteen CDs

(08:16:08) RT @EwenRankin: Pls Thank Karl @Claw0101 for making the Friday Shows possible in recent weeks. Been so busy but he's been organising. #FF

(08:17:51) @PlainTalkingHR Good morning - and thank you! :) #FF (and lovely @poots too!)

(13:31:34) @JoOstermeyer Bon voyage!

(14:06:52) Sometimes work gives me that fuzzy feeling. And not just when I've had a massive mug of coffee.

(14:09:02) I wonder if John Linwood's on Twitter.

(14:09:44) @PontoonDock Thank you, Mark! You're an absolutely good egg. #FF

(14:46:38) @fiverscarrot I met him once. Or rather we both walked out of TV Centre at the same time. And said goodnight. It was about 11.30pm

(14:46:56) @LilyShambles FF extra loud. If you're a musician.

(16:00:00) I know what I ~should~ be doing. And I know what I ~want~ to do. I have an hour to do one or the other. I shall decide over a coffee.

(16:00:45) @sharonlangridge YAY! Good boss :)

(17:26:45) @katchooon Congratu-late-ions ;)

(17:30:56) @leica0000 makes sense :)

(17:32:30) @LilyShambles heehee :D I might have a celebratory beer when I get home - I made it through the week :)

(17:32:57) @sharonlangridge Yes. Yes it was.

(17:35:48) I think I made it moderately unscathed through today. I got stuff done and John Linwood didn't even look at me #result

(18:00:02) @neilfarrimond Thanks mate! Have a top retro weekend whatever you're doing!

(18:56:20) My preferred size of Stryder is... absolutely gargantuan.

(18:58:31) Homium (atomic number: 75, atomic mass: loads) There may well be sitting down done tonight. And of the beer. Just a tinchey bit.

(20:03:40) On my way to have a shower, I found myself thinking with Henning Wehn's voice. Also I have an inexplicable cut on my left foot. #notnormal

(20:03:59) @mostlygeordie yay!

(20:07:39) @Sk287 Holy cow that's phenomenal!

(20:10:55) @smartie999 I'm on the sofa. In my own home. It's much cleaner and quieter :)

(20:21:31) @smartie999 @dt90spt I have quite a few bits of kitchen roll in my dressing gown pocket. It's how I do weekendings.

(20:22:06) @kingfamily Nanight!

(20:22:26) @Littlebit_Bod miaow!

(20:44:46) @PlainTalkingHR @smartie999 @dt90spt Awww. Can you grab some fruit from the bowl?

(20:45:45) @smartie999 That is a fabulous colour :) :)

(20:46:13) @JQP74 ha! nice one sir!

(20:46:43) @smartie999 I have the sniffles. @dt90spt

(21:17:57) @Littlebit_Bod ha! I'm sure you can say the same for yourself ;)

(22:36:29) In bed shortly after half-past ten on a Friday evening ~sigh~ it's been that kind of week. Night night.

(06:16:38) @PeachyPics It's getting light but I have my suspicions.

(06:20:06) @lloydbayley Phew! Did you go away?

(06:21:21) @vobes Morning Mr V - on this portentous day! Hope it goes well :)

(06:26:16) Morning. Adjective to follow. It's almost daylight out there.. means clock change is coming :/

(06:33:55) Zooooo

(07:03:19) @JQP74 Good morning, chief :) I hope your Thursday is more fantastic than you hope :)

(07:04:45) RT @poots: Good morning and happy International Women's Day to you.

(07:07:25) @Dappydoris @PervyWilbury Good morning/evening my #pervycouncil pals. Let's all drink coffee and laugh at the futility of insistence.

(07:07:52) @biscuitnose Do stuff with ropes and trees? (not gallows)

(07:09:32) @lloydbayley The woman who runs our social club bar thought she was ordering bottles of Indian "Tiger" lager but got Tiger real ale. #result

(07:18:19) @biscuitnose Yeah! Get muddy?

(07:22:19) @lloydbayley I certainly wasn't ;) I think she still had some of the lager in stock :) :)

(07:23:40) Psyching myself up for the busiest workday of the week. Hope I Get Stuff Done...

(07:24:22) @helenelectric Oh no :/ hope you have a better one today - and that your new cards come quickly :)

(07:43:18) @linseyt Wow! Hope the exams go well, and your students do you proud :)

(08:54:47) @PervyWilbury @Dappydoris PLAN! Kettle's on :)

(08:55:17) Starting the day as I mean to go on. With lemsip*

(13:38:58) @poots I do, thank you :) The sun is out and the world is adequate. I may even have a coffee later. Hope your course is going well! x

(13:39:23) @smartie999 @BitsyVonMuffin I like my gingers full fat and latte.

(13:39:58) @DiscoRoger I have a separate Twitter account (which I really don't update often enough) with such brainitches.. @Brainitch :D Good choice!

(13:40:16) @BitsyVonMuffin @smartie999 A belated but ever so heartfelt Happy Thursday Lunchtime to you x

(13:40:40) @Littlebit_Bod Oh dear heavens. No ear-ache from me.. but I need coffee to perk me, I think! I hope your day improves x

(13:41:00) @Purrfunct Er.

(13:42:13) I am SO going to do something with our shed (if I ever get round to it)

(13:47:21) I really am surprised I haven't been run over yet.

(13:50:45) @streakmachine Sheds are cool!

(15:19:24) Saints preserve me from purchasing systems. An invoice error has resulted in causing me a world of bureaucratic pain. Computer says no.

(15:20:51) @hazelblackberry @vsopfables @iamamro I'm going to have me a carmel candy. I have some in my pants. *sigh*

(15:21:00) @andytuk Quite.

(17:22:59) @iamamro @vsopfables @hazelblackberry Box clever.

(17:24:08) I am totes going to get a pair of them socks with the grippy rubber bits underneath. Wish I could remember what they're called...

(17:25:00) @brennig Neatotes.

(17:25:45) My work email is borked. Again.

(17:38:31) @gilliandonovan In that case, David Blaine should be the spokesperson. Yes.

(17:39:07) @2danceis2dream2 Yes!

(17:55:57) @Littlebit_Bod aww - hope you're well looked-after and your earache goes away really soon xx

(17:57:30) @vobes Have you tried holding down CTRL and scrolling up with the scroll-wheel?

(17:58:20) @vobes What the man @stu4art said - hope tonight is a branstormer!

(17:59:28) I just invented* a brilliant new word: branstormer. Means someone who regularly impresses. *mistyped

(18:00:35) @sparkyannc And the very same to you :)

(18:18:27) @Richard_C Yes, yes it might. I'll add it to the definition :)

(18:18:56) @stu4art haha! Hate it when that happens!

(18:19:38) @streakmachine The Streakmachine Dictionary Of Modern English. You could have yourself a hit there ;)

(18:22:46) @RobJD @poots I definitely do. Women are exxtra good.

(18:23:07) @GHOGIT Cool ;)

(18:23:14) RT @GHOGIT: I gather that Venus will pass between Earth & Sun soon, syzygy.

(18:23:58) @stu4art But you also get a ß key ;)

(18:25:06) @Littlebit_Bod Sounds like you have him entirely how you want him :)

(18:40:47) Heh.. I got a (sort-of) mention on @TheILPPodcast - thanks, Dave!

(18:56:12) @willowHart Heh. Only in very, very small circles :D

(19:00:08) @willowHart This big -> o

(19:21:54) @willowHart (Although I actually appear most weeks on a tech podcast panel show thing. If that's fame? :D)

(19:56:03) @podquiz Yes - I like it!

(20:51:09) @podquiz Gah.. it is - would you like me to send you a screenshot?

(20:51:18) @rosscraig @BritTechPhoto @eriklanigan @ClothheadHQ @SarahJaneUK @EwenRankin heehee ;D

(20:51:32) @BitsyVonMuffin @smartie999 Thank you, dear Bitsy! x

(20:57:43) Making myself a pretend Lemsip before the @BritishTechNews BIG show starts in just over half an hour. It's got me on it. With Lemsip.

(21:14:59) @nedtypeseagoon The best is yet to come, right? :)

(21:25:31) @smartie999 I need more than buckets!

(22:23:28) @LilacNun wow - congratulations! :)

(22:53:39) @mrdavidwalker Brilliant website - especially as I live so close to Luton Airport .. :D

(23:01:31) Another remarkable @BritishTechNews BIG show done / dusted.. thank you @ErikLanigan @SarahJaneUK @ClothheadHQ @EwenRankin for your patience!

(23:02:32) Note to self: the correct follow-up to a bad joke is to tap the microphone and go "Hello? Hello? Is this thing on?" Works for @HelloBuglers!

(23:05:15) @shellzenner You go go go, Shell - you're on the way up, and no mistake. And that @JamisonMatt is a truly inspirational, brilliant man :) :)

(23:05:32) @stu4art Sorry, mate.. couldn't resist :D

(23:05:54) @smartie999 Hahahaha. I let other people do my face. So to speak.

(23:06:19) Bedd. With two dds. Night nightdd.

(06:17:07) @Ariadnes_web Oh heavens... I would say get yourself all rested and dosed up this morning and go in in the afternoon if you feel better.

(06:17:21) @brennig At this time of the morning as well :/

(06:23:16) @lloydbayley That's pretty neat :)

(07:07:55) @BeachHut81 It's come a long way since the 1970s. Well, it's got a lot bigger.. @LDNLutonAirport

(07:08:58) @clothheadhq Well indeed. I was surprised I made it out with my mobile phone intact :D Bet they know who I am, though :D

(07:10:08) @BitsyVonMuffin Morning. Commuting now - nice and hurtly, thank you. Well, I was but it's a 50mph speed limit at the mo.. how's you?

(07:10:59) @akbea hahahaha! Yes :D Planes landing and dry wipe markers are the ideal combination :D

(07:12:44) @debsylee Thank you :)

(07:42:41) @BitsyVonMuffin I'm not sure I can even say that for me! :D

(08:05:14) Ooh.. just crossed Marylebone Rd in front of a bright red Irmscher Vauxhall Insignia. That is a beautiful car.

(08:05:39) I would add that it had stopped and I am still in possession of my legs.

(09:44:59) @BitsyVonMuffin Unfortunately the warmth and the jiggling puts me to sleep until 2 miles from jct 1, where there's a dip that goes BOING!

(09:45:10) @AuntieJammy Morning to you too :)

(09:45:32) @willowHart Apparently walking along the Marylebone Rd is the pollution equivalent of smoking a cigarette :/ Morning! xx

(09:45:39) @Matildamouse Bit damp ;)

(09:48:49) @BitsyVonMuffin Happens to me most days, and it wakes me up :D

(10:17:53) @LDNLutonAirport I'm a daily commuter and a local :) Always good to keep track of what's going on. Security Zone 2 is quite scary! Busy!!?

(10:41:18) @HellenBach Oh I set up none of them :D

(10:42:55) @LDNLutonAirport I have six meetings I need to attend at 11am - kinda sums my Wednesday up :D Hope yours is going well :)

(11:17:05) @emmathegardener I absolutely loved your coffee AKG podcast - thank you for the shout out! I'm going to try and grow some coffee :) :)

(11:19:22) @Dappydoris @smartie999 I tried to find an old-school "ruler" pencil case in WH Smiths. They don't do them any more BOO!

(18:11:30) @Littlebit_Bod !

(18:27:20) @Littlebit_Bod ~sigh~ One does wonder how some people can function :/

(18:32:03) @pj_kent In some circumstances, maybe :)

(18:37:40) @pj_kent until recently I hardly had any hugs either. They are quite nice, though :)

(19:31:44) @Littlebit_Bod I guess we dream of havimg the perfect boss. Myself, I don't aspire to ~be~ the perfect boss; I aspire to adequacy :D

(06:30:52) @JQP74 Morning! I've got my scarf on - and I haven't even left the house ;) Have a great day. And yes.. my go! ;) #wordswithfriends

(07:38:29) @kyleswager That's an enormous app. Size. Mornin' Kyle!

(07:39:26) @vsopfables ~sniggers~

(07:40:59) @106jack I would like to be the face of jumble sales.

(07:42:59) @kyleswager I'm approaching tolerable, thank you - too much to do at work, but hey... it's a living. You doing OK?

(08:44:15) In da office. Innit. Coffee flavoured drink time, I think ...

(09:25:47) @goitsagch I totally think so. I had Camp coffee for the first time in years the other day.. not nearly as bad as I recall it being :D

(09:25:53) @GHOGIT Nice! :D

(09:47:12) @goitsagch That would be a supermarket sweeping generalisation ;)

(10:21:58) I just got a hug off a work colleague. Quite unexpected.

(10:22:22) @Purrfunct OMG ur so rite LOL.

(10:25:38) @Purrfunct I don't feel very well now. I should never have done that . ;)

(10:28:40) @brennig Do you mean USA For Africa's We Are The World? Or Michael Jackson's Heal The World? Not that it matters in cryptographic circles...

(10:29:05) @JQP74 She was lovely. Like a cousin.

(10:29:31) @Purrfunct Ima let you off just this once. ~does a bit of sick in my mouth~

(10:29:49) @brennig Ed. Balls.

(10:31:52) @brennig True.

(10:32:25) I just saw one of my colleagues peeling one of five hard boiled eggs in a tupperware. He's an actual real-life Mr Strong.

(10:32:47) @Purrfunct Mmmm cake. I'm just about to indulge in a nice pear - trying to be good this week.

(14:26:48) @sharonlangridge I think it's British :D It was a bit odd hugging in an open plan office environment. But she did offer - to cheer me up :D

(14:27:20) @ptomtom48 Steve Jobs said that? Wow. What a man.

(14:40:41) @sharonlangridge QED :)

(15:06:50) Im a eating a very sad tomato.

(15:08:08) @johnbeaver Nice to attend a family event :D

(15:09:39) @Tactless_Claire It looks like it's already cried its goodness all away. #wintertomato

(15:09:55) @ptomtom48 I think that was probably the subtext, in fact.

(15:10:25) @AnotherJulia Absolutely :/

(15:18:55) @BeachHut81 Blimey. What's he done to deserve that..?!

(16:03:51) @BeachHut81 oh dear :/

(17:56:59) @GHOGIT Heh. That'd be a plum job.

(18:00:41) @MattBloomFilms @zany_zigzag That's just round the corner from where I work.. can't believe I've never spotted it :D

(18:21:17) There is hurtling going on. The ultimate goal is my duvet. Depends if the hot water is working again or not.

(18:24:22) @johnbeaver I think it means "Bugger off." Which isn't nice :D

(19:02:46) @poots Splendid - thank you :)

(19:03:52) I can see Jupiter, Venus, Mars (which is looking red even to the naked eye) and the moon. Gets full quickly these days. Nice to be out.

(19:34:28) @HermioneCameron There's a bonus one just below and to the left of the moon :) :) :)

(19:37:46) There are different sorts of chilli sauce.

(21:55:55) And so to sleep. Night :) especially to @PlainTalkingHR :) x

(07:25:45) Good morning. Blue skies and sunshine. Although I think it belies the chilliness #weather Time for something warm and filling. Not a duvet.

(07:26:09) Also: awesome.

(08:07:11) Eep.. better get going. Time goes so fast (when you're having fun).

(08:49:16) @BitsyVonMuffin Good morning, lovely :) A great weekend, thank you - time with the family and pottering :) How about yours?

(08:49:54) @AlexGFox True, but it affects us all when it's just another manic Monday :)

(08:50:41) @JQP74 Monday morning greetings to you, mate - taking my goes soon! #Wordswithfriends

(08:53:05) @BitsyVonMuffin It was pretty horrible out, wasn't it! Bright and chilly here in Luton this morning :) Just heading home from the school run

(09:29:39) @BitsyVonMuffin This is indeed :) No commute for me :) :) You out and about today?

(09:30:04) @AlexGFox Someone should write a song about that! :D

(10:21:11) @BitsyVonMuffin Wow.. Poland..! You're a superstar to be looking after him so well :) :)

(10:34:23) @BitsyVonMuffin Quite so! How long's he away for? And what are you going to get up to with the place to yourself? #wildparties

(10:35:28) Pooh sticks. I'm off out into the garden. We have no water feature.

(11:01:23) Hmm. The intermittent sunshine is playing havoc with my front door camera's motion detector thing. Keeps going 'Ting' :D

(11:02:03) Now I'm sneezing. Again. Doubtless sunshine related.

(11:02:13) @BritishTechNews SMASH!

(11:02:34) @BitsyVonMuffin Heehee.. it comes to that time when the kids keep their parents in check, eh? :D

(11:10:04) @smartie999 Tried that. Doesn't last long :D

(12:11:20) @BitsyVonMuffin Heh. I do :D

(12:11:57) Starting to get hungry now. I've put away my wrench (dripping tap investigations) and will now proceed to Make Lunch #notaeuphemism

(14:04:14) Making a MASSIVE coffee. I kinda need it.

(14:05:10) @Dappydoris I've never heard of that #broadeninghorizons

(14:05:26) CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAB *bump*

(14:31:52) @streakmachine Definitely needed D

(14:32:51) @Dappydoris Alan Sugar Plum! I'm gonna Google Gogol Bordello. Just to see what it is :)

(14:35:10) @Dappydoris That is GREAT fun music! :) :)

(16:57:30) @Dappydoris "Poundland Knickers" ... don't make me do it :D

(16:57:55) @RobJD Even turning the motion sensitivity down doesn't cut it.. I think I'll just have to get used to it :D

(16:58:13) @poots :) :) You make me smile. As does fixed windows.

(17:29:08) Darn it.. can't get under 60 items in my inbox...

(17:29:56) Also my fingernails are at the stage where they're making contact with my computer keys. Hate that sensation #chalkboard CLIPPAGE!

(17:31:40) RT @alaindebotton: What ultimately kills us isn't one big thing, but the accumulation of a thousand tiny obligations we can't say no to ...

(17:32:03) @Purrfunct Not in my team, it ain't #engineersandblokes

(17:32:14) @emmathegardener Lordy that's a lot!

(17:34:41) @joey_coops Their laughter is empty, reverberating loudly but desperately from the husk of what used to be a person. Pity them.

(17:36:37) @smartie999 *hug* Y'know what I think? I think it's good that she does it right in front of you. I fear quiet resentment and loss. x

(17:43:49) @PlainTalkingHR @smartie999 You're both lovely :) x

(17:45:18) Right. Time to hang up my, er, fingers for another day.

(18:05:07) @smartie999 *hug* <- The best response I can offer (I tried more but it didn't fit in a tweet) x

(18:29:49) Here's my thing that goes 'ting' http://t.co/wTbOmDre (it's made out of an old McDonald's toy, and it's activated by a Linux script. Heh).

(18:30:05) @smartie999 I could really go for a beer right now. Chin chin! x

(19:33:16) Dropped the boy off at Scoutages. When he comes back it will be bedtime. If not sooner...

(19:38:06) @BaronHawkey That is SO cool! :)

(19:41:49) Wow.. @MissyMWAC: "Spice is the variety of life." She's so PROFOUND!

(19:43:24) @willowHart Sooner - for me. Later - for him :D

(19:43:35) @fridgemagnet2 Bit advanced.

(19:43:48) @streakmachine The machine that goes: "TING!" :D

(19:43:55) @smartie999 Tingyou.

(19:44:19) @fridgemagnet2 Go to Tescos in Luton - it's not raining here.

(19:46:41) @willowHart It's been done. <- TRUE!

(19:47:50) @willowHart Heh. Definitely. But then, it's still a struggle to get up before 6am :D

(21:08:02) @smartie999 @Pewari I always thought the Ting Tings were a bit noisy and shouty. I'm not really very punk :D Alphabeat is more my thing ;)

(07:37:38) @Moominstrudel Feeling any better?

(07:39:24) @vobes Morning :) Very exciting - especially if it's a three part epic!

(07:39:51) @Zararugosa Morning :)

(07:42:31) Good morning. Bit achey (probably due to this cold and all the hammering yesterday). Know what will help? coffee. Yes.

(07:43:41) @Moominstrudel More tea! I know that feeling.. darn those troublesome virii!

(07:53:10) @kingfamily Oops! Kettle on?

(08:38:33) @kingfamily Lovely! I've had a small injection of caffeine.. subdued but fine here this morning.. we've got @106jack on and all's well :) x

(08:39:39) @lloydbayley Evenin' Lloyd!

(08:39:56) Still tinkering with my camera script. Nearly works...

(08:42:05) @brennig I'll be happy to :)

(08:42:32) @lloydbayley Heehee.. nearly! Need to get myself dressed and dashing about :D

(13:47:57) Bizarre weird sleet stuff in LU2. Also: nature abhors a vacuum cleaner.

(13:50:09) Eurovision certainly seems Eddie Izzard-inspired.. first Azerbaijan, now Englebert Humperdinck!

(13:50:47) Engelbert Humperdinck. What is it with these musicians whose names are hard to spell..?

(13:51:01) @trevypoos Yes. Yes it does :D

(15:25:38) Heh. http://t.co/kWPGdQjp #Bexhill

(15:42:55) @Matildamouse It's been rather damp and sleety, hasn't it? Definitely not stomping around in the snow weather :D

(18:04:56) Enjoyed a pleasant visitation from @RobJD - good to see ya, mate!

(19:07:09) @brennig I may well do.. it's a bit 'custom' (i.e. bodged!)

(19:07:42) @fridgemagnet2 I love electrics.

(19:15:54) @canuckuk *chuckles* Stand up in a congress court thingy and say that ;)

(19:40:48) @dt90spt @TOther_Simon Oh this is DELICIOUS! :) Thank you for sharing it :)

(20:28:08) @WhimsicalWife I would very much like of the carrot cake thankyouplease. Got any left?

(20:38:40) @WhimsicalWife :D I wouldn't want to deprave you x

(20:40:01) @brennig Understood :) Great to hear your tickets to Austin are booked.. is that SXSW? Comes round quick if so!

(20:41:09) Bentley with a Spitfire engine. Or a Meteor one.

(20:41:40) @vobes Sounds like an amazing place!

(20:41:49) @brennig :) :)

(20:42:38) A bit of Alex James and no mention of his humiliating Festival thing (although in fairness it was the promoters)...

(20:43:26) @vobes Ahh yes! Robert Reed! He used to feature in jingles :) @rareed0219

(20:48:32) "Ah haa.. that's 'A'" <- I like Alex James and his morse code joke. #TopGear

(20:50:12) @vobes Good times :)

(20:51:34) @streakmachine Oh yeaahh!

(20:52:54) @vobes The world needs the Vobes :) I love the beer shows!

(20:54:43) @vobes I love 'em - just a shame the world doesn't know.. you're better than almost every commercial radio breakfast show :)

(21:00:47) RT @mediocre_mum: What I need from you...can you all RT @ImperialNHS can you please give @mediocre_mum's husband an appt. Thanking you ...

(21:07:08) I only pop by Facebook once a week or so. I wonder whether I'm missing anything..?

(21:16:59) I liked an @YouTube videofrom @WatchFunnyClips http://t.co/zNvjeT4D Brett Domino Trio: Earthquake (Labrinth Cover

(22:08:42) @smartie999 Awww :)

(22:09:00) A nagging headache has prompted me to attack a McDonalds toy with a screwdriver.

(22:13:21) @riggwelter Fun as that would be, I'm trying to salvage a little speaker for a work of unspeakable bodgery. #MacGyverWouldBeSpinning

(22:14:16) @striderpaul @Leica0000 @Brennig Apart from @dragonhistory's photos of @Ness_Battery, I think you're absolutely right!

(23:09:54) @binabery This is quite an old toy :D Haven't been to McD's in 2012.. doin' pretty well! ;)

(23:10:12) @AlexGFox Oh I absolutely love @MissyMWAC's podcast.. I shall enjoy this week's forthwith :)

(23:11:40) Right. Definitely need bed. Night.

(07:43:36) @biscuitnose Whichever you do, I will like you :)

(07:44:58) @betsyweber What a splendid idea! I'll leave it to the more organised among the Bagelers to decide on dates, but I work in London - cool!

(07:59:21) Morning. Upstairs - downstairs as an objective.

(07:59:47) @biscuitnose Hope you have lots of smiles today :)

(08:01:09) @sharonlangridge Morning :) I will be getting up in a minute, too - just as soon as I've caught up with The Onion Radio News podcast :D

(08:02:59) @mostlygeordie Ha! I think I might manage the 'achievable' bit.. can't remember what most of the other letters mean :D Mornin' nonetheless!

(08:03:56) @JQP74 G'day! You too - hope it's a great one! Taking my go now #WordsWithFriends

(08:04:09) @sharonlangridge I think it might involve a hot beverage ;)

(08:04:52) @JQP74 But you always do :D

(08:29:05) @lloydbayley Must tune in! :) Evenin'

(08:29:25) @Tactless_Claire Stretchy arms. <- the answer.

(08:30:18) @mostlygeordie My mother will be 76 this year.. I hope I'm as healthy as she is when/if I get to that age!

(08:31:00) @vobes Shame you can't get a toaster in a travelodge... although that would be disastrous, I think!

(08:31:34) Right. Time to shower, dress and then stare a little bemusedly at the front of the house.

(08:44:27) @BritishTechNews I think so :)

(08:44:59) @torrencesalces Absolutely.. no hope!

(08:45:24) @vobes Heehee.. just don't let it burn :D Perhaps a sandwich toaster? And a good morning to you, too :)

(08:47:46) @alnicholl77 You and me both. I'm using psychology.. "No. I don't have a sore throat" <croaky croaky>

(08:48:51) @EwenRankin I hope it's a bit less misty tonight!

(09:01:02) RT @claw0101: Come and join us Wednesday evening for all the fun...and beer. http://t.co/c8t2Pp5F

(09:02:53) @brennig @poots Oh footstool how I love you, so dependable, so aloof; squatting solidly in silence, my delightful lounging pouffe.

(12:53:28) @ajlanghorn Af'noon!

(13:27:18) @alnicholl77 Hope you feel better soon, mate - pineapple juice is good for that sort of thing :)

(13:27:28) @BritishTechNews That's really cool! Thank you :)

(13:28:38) A morning spent trying to gain ingress into the house. For some wires. I have a plan, and I will be using a hammer after lunch.

(18:04:05) @mostlygeordie Finished now! And I dun of the post-DIY hoovering #standard

(18:07:16) All done with the hammering (and the hoovering. And the wires. Oh the wires) Now: last week's TV Burp (before it goes stale) ...

(18:44:06) @mostlygeordie Any particular sort of bootcamp?

(19:50:56) @mostlygeordie Sounds pretty cool - I bet you're really fit..! :) :)

(19:51:19) Python scripting. I really am rusty.

(22:09:43) @Moominstrudel Oh no :( Hope you feel MILES better soon x

(23:04:14) @lloydbayley Mornin'/evenin'!

(23:06:46) Right. Better fill up my cup and head to bed. Hoping for no overnight disturbances..! Night night night!

(06:01:38) @claw0101 Good. Good. All is well :)

(06:04:12) Good morning. Listening to "The 12 inch single" - right up my street! http://t.co/0ZuJqZC8 .. Paul Morley. Vinyl. Yeah /cc @dt90spt #radio4

(06:04:47) @AuntieJammy I have coffee, porridge and an interesting documentary on 12" singles. Life could be ~much~ worse ;) @Zararugosa

(06:12:44) @lloydbayley Mornin' / evenin' Lloyd! Hope your week's gone well :) :)

(06:19:34) @lloydbayley Great to hear! I have a meeting all day. I think that says it all ;) Then, however, is the weekend. The weekend is GOOD :)

(06:21:37) @italisalute Morning, Alan! I think so.. ! http://t.co/AEDqfUu4 (Useful information on the BBC Traffic Cameras site ;) http://t.co/7dnnwBIP

(06:22:14) @lloydbayley Quite the opposite for me.. I have some things to stick to the front of the house (floodlight & PIR :D) so I'm hoping for sun!

(06:22:35) @Zararugosa Same to you! :) It's going to be a good one (Just saying it makes it possible!) @auntiejammy

(06:23:11) Right.. better shake a tail feather. Not a good look this time of the morning. Layers.

(06:28:28) @kingfamily Morning lovely :) Not a tea drinker, me.. (not any more - I think I overdosed as a teenager!) Coffee for me! Have a good day x

(06:28:37) @linseyt You too! *cluck* x

(06:28:46) @mostlygeordie Laminate x

(06:28:58) @italisalute @dt90spt Woolworth's label! :) :)

(06:29:15) *evaporates into the fogginess* http://t.co/7dnnwBIP <- heh.

(07:55:49) @lloydbayley Thanks mate!

(07:56:18) @italisalute haha! Oh I miss buying vinyl records.. especially on sale from Woolies :D

(07:57:05) @kingfamily Me too! I'm in an all-day management meeting, but I entirely intend to be irreverent ;) Happy Lent coffee :) x

(07:57:32) @alta8 that's really kind - thank you!

(07:58:21) @JQP74 Morning John. I'm horribly behind on #WordsWithFriends - but I'll catch up, honest! Have a great Friday, too :)

(07:59:33) @_forky happy freeness!

(07:59:59) @brennig Morning :) They do a nice breakfast at Sainsbury's :)

(08:01:47) @poots Dear beloved wife, please can you do a caffeination check on the coffee? I fear I have made an incorrect selection again :/

(08:02:54) RT @Barwickgreen: We have to get one for the office. Not naming names. RT @TonyChurnside Speech-jamming gun http://t.co/09yxYC1P

(08:25:52) @brennig I know that feeling.. necked some porridge before I dashed to work.. hope your day improves!

(08:26:48) @brennig Gawd bless ya, sir! *doffs right back*

(08:27:07) @RobJD Innit! :)

(08:47:05) @PervyWilbury @_forky @BaronHawkey @BitsyVonMuffin @Bootcoot @Dappydoris @GettingShirty @jrr4film @painted_duchess #FF YES! :)

(08:47:22) @mostlygeordie Thank you! *hug* #FF

(08:47:36) @dt90spt Nice selection of tunes, too.. most of which I own on 12" single ;)

(08:48:10) Right. I'm going to make myself a coffee and then go to TV Centre. It's sort of an 'innoculation' thing...

(08:48:43) @errolin That was yesterday. I'm more than making up for it with an all-dayer today :/ #killmenow

(08:48:57) Pedigree. Chum.

(08:50:10) @brennig I was just thinking of describing someone as a pedigree chum. Offering a compliment as "Fish-flavoured catkins" is also doomed :D

(08:50:39) @Tactless_Claire Worth a go, at least. {insert NHS reform gag here}

(09:20:51) Actually, Pendulum are quite boring.

(09:22:45) @dt90spt Heh.. straight down the middle (from Woolworths :D)

(09:23:36) @Dappydoris Enjoy this trip ;)

(09:24:39) @Dappydoris Funnily enough, I saw someone rollerbooting to work this morning & thought.. "I wish I could do that" (I am rubbish on wheels!)

(12:18:49) @Dappydoris I can't get into the broom cupboard any more. But yes. A TV Centre boo is a fine idea :)

(14:16:44) @smartie999 please send photographic evidence.

(15:41:08) Gosh this is, well, I can be glad I'm still alive...

(16:05:28) @mostlygeordie All day meeting.. too much coffee.. home straight :) Thank you for your concern! x

(16:06:20) @poots Yeah, thank you. Just a bit.. well.. overwhelming :) Did you get my earlier tweet about the coffee? Hope your work went well! x

(16:07:26) @justliketoby @zammo Brilliant.. totally want one! Thanks for sharing it :)

(16:07:43) The lights don't work in here...

(16:14:01) @poots uh oh.. Maybe I should cut down :D x

(18:48:44) @Ben_Toone Ohh definitely. Personal fave. (I miss @kathyclugston but heard her dulcets on 4 extra :)

(18:49:24) @oldgoldtech Thank you! #ff

(20:29:48) Krapy rubsnif

(21:03:52) @claw0101 Is the correct! Answer!

(21:04:33) @_forky !lacol

(21:07:07) @fiverscarrot Me? Gone a bit fruitloop... Finsbury Park, y'see! Sitting down and allowing the stress to dissipate :) Had a reasonable day?

(21:07:30) @claw0101 What do prizes make?

(21:10:34) Oh it's good to be home.. and watching live satire from Wednesday. Not from the Addams Family.

(21:13:05) @fiverscarrot Oh I hope your throat gets better :/ Hitchin's quite nice :) Finsbury Park backwards is krapy rubsnif ;) Eveningtime yay!

(21:16:12) @_forky I like all of those. I did do not sue! :D

(21:22:00) @_forky That's a variation I want to hear!

(21:37:35) @fiverscarrot All good - I'm trying to catch up too :D

(06:26:17) @mostlygeordie Mornin' :) (Thought I'd get in early ;)

(06:27:02) Good morning. What light beyond yon window breaks? That'll be dawn, then. Many are saying spring is on its way.. mayyybe. Time to dash.

(06:27:26) PS Slightly unsatisfactory coffee this morning. Not sure what I did wrong. I shall have another go when I get into work. Weird

(06:27:43) PPS NO MEETINGS TODAY! This is a record. *makes a red mark in the diary*

(10:10:50) @106jack Oh no! There must be something wrong with Jules. That's all I can conclude ;)

(10:13:12) @BaronHawkey Rude? Filthy, mate ;)

(10:14:18) @brennig Ha! I liked your audioboo, by the way.. did anyone ever turn up?

(10:15:16) @brennig Oh my goodness.. I'm glad you made it, though - and all the best with the exam!

(10:21:17) @brennig Congratulations! I'm happy to be your henchman (not minion, if that's OK)

(10:21:33) @Tactless_Claire I'm going to have to look that up.. it's been a while :D @brennig

(10:39:05) @brennig I like that. And with that in mind, I'm in.

(16:04:59) @_forky Ohhh.. I would LOVE to write a song.. next year, maybe (I say that EVERY year :D)

(16:06:15) @_forky WOW! :) :) :)

(16:07:34) @_forky I think - as in previous years - the singer will be pre-selected.. I'm sure we could do better than Blue, you and me, though! :)

(16:35:16) @_forky What a wonderful idea! :)

(16:35:35) @emmathegardener :) :)

(17:53:00) I am hurtling. Hurtling like a stampede of spare tyres. Except homeward.

(17:55:26) @biscuitnose on balance, WIN.

(17:56:59) @Gdowling I reckon. Metaphorically, maybe. Downhill, at least. Wouldn't want to get in their way...

(17:57:32) @AnnaClare_ Sounds lovely :)

(17:58:51) @willowHart No. I do that all the time :)

(18:00:39) @_forky yes yes yes!

(18:01:37) @mostlygeordie helloo :) I've not been on much, myself. But miss you I did :)

(18:15:32) @Gdowling Now that is an evocative allegory. If, indeed, it is an allegory. Thank you for the smile!

(18:16:34) @willowHart If it's done in cheerful irreverence, there's nowt wrong with it - isn't that what satire is? You could be heading for comedy ;)

(20:29:28) @fiverscarrot Heehee.. I'm not sure you have anything to worry about.. your little'uns will keep you hurtling yourself!

(20:29:52) @mostlygeordie Oh wow.. that's the life! I've been working.. really busy busy time for me at the moment. Keeps the wheels turning, though ;)

(20:30:03) @willowHart Oh I know that all too well ;) xxx

(20:31:17) Right.. time to paint myself bluescreen for the @BritishTechNews BIG show at 9.30pm. I have my cool thing ready #notaeuphemism

(21:13:52) @mostlygeordie Thank you :) I'm doing some internet telly in a bit.. but then bed. Oh I do like bed (though never spend long enough there!)

(21:46:55) MT @eriklanigan I'm LIVE right now on this week's @BagelTechNews panel: http://t.co/8TJWw7zY - ME TOO!

(21:57:34) @SimplyTanny See you in spring! *boing*

(22:25:26) RT @poots: Wow! Engelbert Humperdinck for the British entry to Eurovision 2012! (@syzygy)

(23:32:40) @betsyweber Great to meet you on the show today - hope you enjoy the remainder of Friday, and have happy travels! :)

(08:37:48) Morning. Bit of a turbulent night.. better check out and get on. Wednesday, right?

(09:28:00) @JQP74 Mornin' JQP! I'll do my best.. bit blurry this morning (and I didn't even have anything to drink last night! :D) Having a go! #Words

(12:25:15) Coffee or not coffee. That is the question. Nothing to do with nobility or minds. Well except the slight headache I've got...

(13:42:03) Is it pedantic to get all a bit mardy when people say "Does anyone have any AoB?" It makes me think of Any Any Any old iron. Which is bad.

(15:09:25) @AlexGFox Surely you're thinking of "Go on.. do your business.. " /cc @arronclaydon

(15:09:49) @griffinkate A fantastic idea. I shall increase my inflection as I do it.

(15:10:01) @Gdowling PDQ!

(15:10:28) @brennig Indeed. But I don't pick her up on it. She's Steph the Change Mistress. I must respect her. Or she might veto my changes.

(15:13:54) One more meeting. And some words to write. The question is.. coffee?

(15:49:09) @koshkajean I also have something of a headache and feel a bit wibbly. Still, kill or cure, eh? :D How's the cloning going?

(15:58:46) @mostlygeordie I know the feeling! Hope it improves.. the sun's out (sort-of!) here, at least :)

(15:58:59) "Liebe Admins,

(16:30:07) @mostlygeordie Yay for imminent escape :) I've been at Salford Quays for the past 24 hours.. heading back to Luton now.. no sun there, then!

(16:31:21) @koshkajean I tried that.. not sure it did very well (I got as far as a toenail). As for curealls, yes - plus a nap ;)

(16:37:28) Heading to Manchester Piccadilly - just about to have a Pomona moment. This trip is all over bar the travelling (!)

(16:41:58) @ajlanghorn briefly - I barely had ttime to breathe, I'm afraid. Next trip in either two, three or four Tuesdays' time! We must have a pint!

(17:21:12) @poots Wow! Please thank her for me :) I'm hoping to make my dodgy bus connection :) Hope you've all had a good day x

(17:23:52) Heading home - I can see the Pennines as the low western sun picks out buildings in the mist.. #Stockport

(17:29:54) Catching up on @Audioboos before indulging myself in the latest @vobesshow 'beer show' podcast with @vobes, @beershowjimmy and @striderpaul

(18:11:52) @striderpaul it's a great listen - thank you for making it! Hope your move goes well! :)

(18:14:50) Gosh. Feeling a bit ropey.. this happens with alarming regularity on a Wednesday. It may well be an allergy.

(19:00:02) @Littlebit_Bod That is well peculiar - but adds to your charms :)

(19:00:27) RT @SlimJimSim: I'm sure I speak for all daydream believers and Clarksville commuters when I say RIP Davy Jones.

(19:01:39) Another swift visit to Milton Keynes (Stoke-on-Trent branch) .. another coach back to Luton caught with less than a minute to spare. Ow.

(19:05:56) @fiverscarrot :) I think it's that it happens at the end of a meeting, and my patience has generally been somewhat worn by then :D

(19:43:24) An interesting historical perspective on monetary union on this week's "A Point Of View" podcast: http://t.co/v9uZt2XP - I learned a lot!

(21:39:50) Long to bed. Night!
