(08:48:48) Good morning. Having a bit of a read - "The Overcoat" by Gogol as inspired by @TimKeyPoet - (free eBook - Gogol it ;)

(10:09:01) @leica0000 Love it!

(10:09:40) @Thehappyfatgirl Sup yourself :D

(10:10:24) @Matildamouse You clearly didn't ring your bell loud enough ;) #notaeuphemism

(10:13:07) @nickleach1 As good as I can commit to at this point in time.. Perhaps I can come into London after work one evening..?

(10:13:42) @iamamro ~baffled~

(10:15:33) @biscuitnose If I said I was imagining your 'best bits' I would probably end up getting blocked :p PS 38 is still YOUNG!

(10:16:29) @TUID Thanks for the tip! Did you see my tweet about The Overcoat.. Might well be your cup of tea...

(10:17:16) RT @kfury: There are 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary, and those who dont, and those who weren't expecting a ...

(10:22:04) @Matildamouse

(10:22:23) @smartie999 Ooch!

(10:23:22) @iamamro Cool..! And with ingredients that are actually achievable!

(10:30:36) @BaronHawkey Morning, BH :)

(10:31:58) I could stare at this little glowing rectangle all day... better get on, though...

(13:03:58) @TUID Sorry! I should have suggested you listen to the Tim Key documentary first - it is brilliantly made :)

(13:09:41) @sparkyannc An impressive piece of forensic thought.. I could, of course, have been talking about my phone or a netbook. But yup (a Nexus 7)

(13:10:05) @BaronHawkey It was a quite brilliant Christmas, thank you :) I hope yours was, too! :)

(13:14:57) @mabes111 Good morning :)

(13:15:56) I seem to be spending a lot of time putting things on charge. I totally need one of those inductive surface things.

(13:17:58) Time to put some different trousers on. And check I have all my phone batteries.

(14:22:50) @sparkyannc I read an actual book on it.. perfect for such things. I hope you had some splendid presents :) @poots

(14:24:21) @alexgeoghegan You really don't want your trousers running out of juice halfway through the afternoon - take it from me ;)

(14:24:40) @fridgemagnet2 The wrong trousers ;)

(14:25:25) @fridgemagnet2 Almost as good as an etch-a-sketch....

(15:01:19) @brennig It is ever so versatile - tablets have definitely come of age! @sparkyannc

(17:13:20) "Just Dance"ing

(17:49:31) @yellow757 Gets them off the sofa :)

(19:47:11) @fluffysuse I 'loaf' you. Any good?

(00:03:38) @sparkyannc @poots Duly favourited! Thank you:)

(07:48:12) @RichHarkness So far nothing more than music you can hear on Heart and a TV programme we've got on the recorder.. :D

(08:01:22) @RichHarkness yup.. "This is Heart" in all its ubiquity...

(09:13:45) @dizzymummytotwo It's Twixtmas. It's what we (should) do :) :) x

(09:16:45) @Thehappyfatgirl Hi team back :)

(09:17:45) @washmysocks31 @smartie999 Morning two lovely ladies :)

(09:17:59) @moyskii *BIG HUG* x

(09:18:11) @TOther_Simon Yarp.

(09:28:47) @dizzymummytotwo Thank you - we have indeed! Hope your family is happy and relaxed! x

(09:38:28) @poots Especially after the orthodontist procedure.. perhaps he struggled to get to sleep and is resting on...

(09:38:36) @poots *BIG HUG* x

(09:39:02) @oliwia_s Aww :( Hope you get better soon. I think I'm fighting off a cold, too! :) x

(09:39:30) @Bazmati2020 That is brilliant :)

(09:41:42) I've got a bookmark on my Firefox called "500 Internal Server Error" This means I win.

(09:42:06) @poots If he's not up by 10.30, perhaps.. it's a tough one.. :/

(10:02:05) @poots haha.. genius! She will have just as much control over them as in 'real life' :D

(10:02:17) @thatsjustme0 Morning gorgeous :)

(10:02:37) @trevypoos ooooo

(10:02:50) @_windrider :D

(10:03:07) @pj_kent Swift recovery, Peter.

(10:23:09) @johndredge YES! :) :)

(10:23:33) @Cakefolder Love it! Quite dubby and spacious :) :) Nice work, sir - more please!

(11:59:07) RT @johndredge: @syzygy

(13:17:45) @nxmee Rest well, mate. Hope you feel better soon.

(13:26:05) @sparkyannc He has gone for a rest... Hopefully it'll subside over the next couple of days... heartbreaking! @poots @nxmee

(13:28:17) @RichHarkness You can power the Pi off almost any USB port - you just need a micro USB cable. We run ours off our TiVo :D

(13:51:26) @italisalute Heehee... I like it :)

(14:51:33) This afternoon, for diagnostic purposes, my first name has been portalortal. This is a tribute to the mighty @davelortal and @theilppodcast

(14:52:52) @RichHarkness Depending on your historic phones you might - like me - have a spare 4GB+ microSD card.. stick it in an adaptor and WIN ;)

(14:53:11) @mrs_forky @BaronHawkey @beangirl @MammaTort @Vixbrix @melodimen @mrtomsimpson @ian262 *big festive smile* thank you! :) #FF

(14:57:57) @RichHarkness At least 4GB :) If you're putting it on the network, you may have a NAS you can use. otherwise bigger is better!

(15:37:07) @RichHarkness I'm not honestly sure.. I think it might be 16GB; best to err on the side of caution because they're bugger all use otherwise!

(16:41:18) @LilacNun @welshboy69 @PillowWhisperer @Welshyeti @n1ckbab3r @DanielCotton Sweet mother of bambi.

(17:05:18) @sparkyannc Bless you.

(17:17:02) RT @ThePoke: Daily Telegraph letter of the year

(18:16:30) Wow... they didn't hang about deChristmasifying Asda...

(18:39:15) @Sk287 ~waves~ ;)

(18:47:09) @smartie999 @washmysocks31 Splendid! xxx

(19:01:23) @smartie999 @sm2n *HUGS* for both of you.

(19:01:51) @smartie999 @washmysocks31 Heh. What time's the watershed in these enlightened times? x

(20:33:32) @katchooon o heavens (which is not a Christmas Carol :D)

(20:45:24) @effieoffie no rush... :)

(20:46:12) @thatsjustme0 Evenin' lovely :) Good day?

(20:56:20) @thatsjustme0 ohhhhh yeah :)

(20:57:03) @dizzymummytotwo Tweet if you need an ambulance! x

(21:06:37) @thatsjustme0 I'm going downstairs to play with mine in a bit... ;) x

(22:22:25) @davelortal A perfect job for you, arguably ;) Congratulations! I enjoyed the Christmas-esque ILP; please wish Deb & Tyler a happy new year!

(23:03:24) @thatsjustme0 *mwah* night! x

(23:56:17) Watching the likes of @MrMichaelSpicer and @somegreybloke (or similar) on - bit sweary but very internets. YEAH.

(09:47:30) Good morning. Really, quiet in the office this morning. Hardly anyone in... it's quite nice, but I have to resist putting TUNES on :D

(09:48:49) @BaronHawkey Morning! :)

(09:49:17) @PlainTalkingHR Good morning :) Glad to hear it! Enjoy your family time :) :) :)

(09:53:18) @smartie999 I'm in the orifice this morning.. doing OK, though.. hope things improve in World Of You! :) x

(10:06:33) @lloydbayley I completely forgot to empty the kitchen bin before I left for work... darn it! :D

(10:07:03) @PaulEdwards_ Morning, Paul :)

(11:47:48) @smartie999 Wow.. record..?

(12:10:53) @smartie999 Heehee.. I didn't go to the riotous Christmas party.. and there is never any scandal here :D #shame

(13:26:41) @mcdwebster Our kitchen is trashed.. not sure we could recreate the moment again ;)

(14:45:28) Hoping @nxmee got on OK at the orthodontist earlier... can't be nice (especially with all the tasty food about!)

(16:16:21) @smartie999 Yes and yes. Just give them a little fresh love.

(16:18:44) @smartie999 @nxmee :) :)

(16:23:30) @smartie999 Pfft :D

(16:23:39) @JQP74 @smartie999 @Wayne197 Happy 27th food! :) :)

(17:07:12) I have been trying valiantly not to eat too much today. My tum has been helping. "NO!" it says. Quite often.

(17:09:51) @ThatAgnes EVERYTHING is wrong with that. Having my phone anywhere near the bath gives me FEAR.

(17:10:38) @drhappymac Hope you feel even soon. And at your prime.

(19:39:57) Watching yesterday's @ri_science's Christmas lecture - @superalora's comment: "You can make a lamp out of wee..? Cool!"

(19:46:33) @nickleach1 Yup.. He's only recently started - 18 months of occasional discomfort for him, sadly. How is H doing? Must do pi sometime :)

(19:47:48) @ThatAgnes You need a flotilla ;)

(19:49:11) @tezzer57 Oooh neat!

(00:00:23) Almost did ALL of Christmas Day. I hope you were able to share everything you wanted to. No alarm set for the morning. Night - schlaf' gut!

(00:01:19) @lsrwLuke same to you, chief :) @JonBCFC @j0anne1

(10:03:37) Good morning. Boxing day is one of the only days of the year when you can have mince pie and custard for breakfast...

(10:04:56) @PlainTalkingHR @bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @hrbeginner @lindylooloo Good morning! blue skies and sunshine today- fantastic!

(10:06:16) @helenduffett Silver lining and all that :) Hope you conquer the cold soon x

(10:52:11) RT @neilcochrane1: @syzygy You can have a mince pie and custard any day you like, Boxing day is the only day you can tweet about it.

(10:52:45) @JonBCFC You too! Hope you actually have a day off!

(10:53:08) @AlexThatPlays YOSS!

(10:55:29) Having a go at BeyondPod for Android to try and move my podcasts off my iPod Touch. It's not a slick as Downcast & a bit clunky but it's OK.

(11:02:20) Every now and then this pops up randomly.. I always make it go away.. Must find out what triggers it...

(11:03:13) @DarrenGriffin Ooh! Thanks for the tip - may try that before I get too involved in BeyondPod!

(11:05:39) @mostlygeordie I shall be sure to point the camera AWAY from me, just in case :D

(11:08:00) @vobes I was commenting to Beth yesterday about how much effort into the CG - it's fantastic!

(11:09:41) @DarrenGriffin Pocket Casts is really well reviewed; I love the app notes! Looks like a keeper - I shall invest forthwith! Thank you :)

(11:13:12) @JamesCridland Ahh... I see. But I'm not actually touching the thing at the time... Maybe it's a gesture that I inadvertently swipe... Hmm

(11:13:48) @poots Okeydoke! All that just to get some podcasts to listen to in the shower :D

(11:15:25) @JamesCridland You are the second person to mention Pocket casts.. Gonna give it a go! Looking forward to the article - thanks for the tip!

(12:06:46) Happy boxing day!

(18:06:13) 11 days ago, I had been making a racket on this planet for 15,000 days. Post-Christmas discoveries...

(18:08:23) @thatsjustme0 Having a great day, I hope! x

(18:19:54) @thatsjustme0 Perfect :) I'm fine - a pleasant lull after the excitement of Christmas :) xx

(18:44:33) @thatsjustme0 Nope.. just the public holidays - hopefully it'll be fairly quiet in the office tomorrow x

(18:53:31) Lenni and Chris giving their puppets a Boxing Day brush :)

(19:01:45) @fridgemagnet2 Anneka or Tim..?

(20:35:02) The revolution will not be televised, but will be available on iPlayer for 7 days afterwards.

(22:05:58) @RichHarkness Yay! You got a Pi! I am currently using mine as a front end to our IP webcams.. running Chromium in 'kiosk' mode :)

(22:06:21) @smartie999 You are the voice of reason :)

(22:08:30) @MissyMWAC @Tone_720 @batwench Which reminds me: my 9 yr-old daughter was told off by my 13 yr-old son for saying "That's what SHE said!" :D

(08:07:01) @batwench The children were well Santa'd - and our gift was that they didn't wake up too early (ten to seven :)

(08:10:42) @Canojar I'll be going to work in my Jesus's Birthday Suit ;) And coming home just in time to put out the mince pies and sherry ;)

(08:12:16) Oh Lordy. @OneLouderApps updated Tweetcaster and it's crashing a bit - even after a full reinstall. Caution if you are invited to update...

(08:22:16) @Canojar Dangly jangly ;)

(08:22:57) @miz_shake68 MOORNING! We have Christmas songs on here, and Christmas lights everywhere.. when I get back from work it'll SO be Christmas ;)

(08:23:08) @miz_shake68 I hope your house and home is excitable and jolly! :)

(08:24:01) Today, incidentally, is @superalora's least favourite day of the WHOLE YEAR. Why? It is NOT Christmas. She's out of bed. It's a start :D

(08:29:58) @joanneh234 And a most wonderfully merry Christmas to you and your family :) Have lots of fun and laughter! xxx

(10:14:18) @JeanieFinlay Pardon? (Get better soon)

(10:20:44) @Wymroyal @superalora It is a truly wonderful day - I have fond memories of Christmas eve; the office is in festive mood. Greetings to you!

(10:30:02) @miz_shake68 @indecisive96 Oh dear juxtaposition! :D (I very much like Depeche Mode, but can't judge One Direction, since I don't know 'em!)

(11:07:53) @lloydbayley Heard your RR from today on the way to work.. wow... that was some background sound you had there! One of your finest, I think!

(11:10:54) I was cautiously pootling down the M1 this morning (quiet but VERY wet!) when two Ford Foci(?) whipped past at must've been 90mph. IDIOTS.

(11:11:40) @vobes YES! Long may your hot water flow. I hope the weather dries out so you can do the roof.. but PLEASE be safe..!

(11:12:19) @lloydbayley Not at all - it was atmospheric (I loved the Pterodactyl reference :D) but I could hear your frustration about phone numpties!

(11:14:55) RT @Queen_UK: If you're working today, leave immediately. It's Christmas. If anyone asks, tell them the Queen said it was ok.

(12:04:42) @nxmee *high fives* It worked! :)

(12:04:59) RT @fandrews: Official NORAD Santa Tracker -

(12:54:24) @xlaux It is not a good day for A&E, I'm afraid. Almost as bad, I understand, as New Year's eve. Please be careful.

(13:00:57) @xlaux Thank heavens - hope you're seen soon x

(13:07:52) I love my @RHAAudio MA350s - I just discovered the little 'bobble' on the cord grip of the left hand earbud so I can feel which is which.

(13:30:01) I was told off by my children for considering the "Twelve Days of Christmas" was irrelevant and TOO LONG. Apparently it's about Jesus.

(13:32:15) @GreavsieE17 TC1!

(13:44:32) @GreavsieE17 Probably involved celebrities frolicking.

(13:45:08) @fridgemagnet2 And a very wazzocky Christmas to you :D (Actually Wazzocks sounds like it should be a suburb of Brighton)

(13:46:30) @rwnash EVERYTHING is about Jesus. Except, maybe, paperclips and pineapple juice. And dogpoo.

(16:11:25) @Richard_C This is one good reason why mobile phones should be fitted with longwave radios.

(16:12:24) @IPTechShark Easy.. "Can I have a bit more tonic in this g'n't please? And a bit more gin?"

(16:14:12) @BaronHawkey Especially with nuts.

(16:14:21) @poots FEST. IVE.

(16:14:55) @drgonzolives @poots MERRY AND HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO YOU :)

(16:16:04) @vobes And the very same to you!

(16:16:41) @pj_kent I just hope they take no-one else with them (or cause inconvenience to other road users :D) Happy birthday for yesterday, btw!

(16:16:58) @BaronHawkey WRAPPED IN BACON. Merry Christmas, BH!

(16:42:18) @helenduffett Have a happy Duffett Christmas! :)x

(16:44:19) Dear America. Please keep your guns. And Piers Morgan. (h/t @JamesCridland )

(16:49:57) A question for my fine Android twitter pals.. have you tried 'GotYa! Face trap!' Worth the £1.99 in case of theft..?

(16:50:21) @inkyhands :) :)

(16:50:35) @AlexThatPlays The creeper ones are funny :D

(17:33:33) @GreavsieE17 I did ;)

(17:36:08) @JQP74 @miz_shake68 Have one for me! :) :)

(17:36:22) @smartie999 Extra-super-festive! :) :)

(18:40:48) We wished the crew of the #ISS a very happy Christmas as it flew over about an hour ago...

(20:00:27) @Matildamouse I am picturing him chasing the ISS at 40,000 mph to keep up… “Slow down will you..!”

(20:03:50) The girls are watching The Snowman and the Snowdog. The score is amazing - quite ‘in your face’ in terms of dynamics, though.

(20:38:18) Festive ginger ale. From Aldi. Really tasty, actually. Ideal for doing very little.

(20:42:35) @drhappymac NORAD.. didn’t realise Google did a Santa tracker :)

(20:43:08) @corrie_corfield It’s coming to telly..? NOOO! It works SO much better on radio…

(20:44:50) @effieoffie It’s got a nice bite to it - some of the other ginger beers barely taste of anything :D Happy Christmas to you and yours! x

(20:47:14) @mostlygeordie Delish. AND it counts as one of my five a day (citation needed) - happy Christmas, twittersis!

(20:48:10) @AlexGFox True family shared experience (although Chris went to bed :D)

(20:49:20) @AlexGFox Early night for me too, then! Have a fantastic time :)

(20:50:55) @TheSantaClaws @drhappymac Just watch out for @MissyMWAC’s rifle.. It’s the pointy shaky thing that just gets sprayed & prayed… or is it..?

(20:53:42) @LilythePurr And the very same to you, yours and those you are of.

(10:19:00) RT @audioboo: Listen carefully and you can hear them singing carols in 1902...

(10:21:20) Two things have brought tears to my eyes today.. first is Toyah's "Brave New World" played during a Smash Hits doc.. ..

(10:22:15) ..The second is this @audioboo of a family singing Christmas carols in 1902. A moment of history captured. LOVE IT!

(10:23:25) @vobes Truly remarkable! :) Hope you have a good day, my dear pal.

(10:23:49) @PlainTalkingHR @hrbeginner @poots @Lindylooloo @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother Happy Friday and festivities to you, too :) Celebratory coffee!x

(11:26:03) @striderpaul @audioboo I absolutely love the way the children are yelling "We wish you a merry Christmas" to be heard! :D

(11:29:18) @stu4art Thanks, Stu4art! :) Luton's still going... the Mayans know better than to close the airport on the day everyone escapes! ;)

(11:29:51) @stu4art (It's my daughter's .. honest! :D)

(07:38:00) @washmysocks31 Good morning... and it is today now :) Not big on Thursdays..?

(07:39:28) @Tactless_Blonde That's the spirit :)

(07:40:55) @ms_howard Oh my... :/ I hope it puts your mind at rest...

(07:42:15) @washmysocks31 :) :) And the start of a new Mayan calendar!

(09:45:43) @ms_howard :) :)

(09:48:02) In the office, not drinking coffee.

(10:10:13) @producerlaura Congratulations :) :)

(11:38:26) @streakmachine @_windrider @pearcen @batwench Documentary? ;) Great, great movie - loved it!

(11:38:44) @jarbennett @106jack At least with breakfast meetings you get free coffee - and sometimes pastries ;)

(13:39:11) Robin reliant. Bus replacement service. Are they the only two phrases that habitually get spoken out of order..?

(14:05:57) @batwench HURRAH :)

(15:39:17) Good heavens.. all go in the quiet time between #BTCC seasons - @newshamracing has joined Speedworks and @tomonslowcole is going to HARD.

(16:06:48) @LilacNun Congratulations :) :)

(16:07:49) @hubbardcj I think @Linton_T_Tavern would have a thing or two to say about that.. ;) Enjoy your Christmas do.. radio parties are the best!

(19:54:41) @EwenRankin @stevenaybour @sarahjaneuk @AlexGFox @claw0101 @paulwheatley I will see if I can find another Mayan calendar ;)

(19:55:40) @BryanRutherford @106jack Have a top time. Wish I was there :)

(20:01:47) @thatsjustme0 Good heavens! Hope you can keep to the plans... are they far away..? x (PS love your writing:)

(07:37:08) @EwenRankin Giving it all the beans.

(07:37:36) @Zararugosa Gosh.. bit early! Morning :)

(07:39:47) @Littlebit_Bod @Ariadnes_web Good morning and felicitations in various measures:)

(07:40:44) @helenduffett BACON!

(07:43:53) Good morning It's weird - and a bit poignant - seeing photos on Twitter of my old workplace. Nice to think 'I used to work there', though.

(07:44:45) @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @hrbeginner @Lindylooloo Happy humpday! Definitely heading for the shortest day :D #dark

(07:45:18) @_windrider lookin' good!

(08:31:34) YES! Happy birthday to @Barwickgreen - as @JamesCridland says, one of the nicest people in radio. And the cleverest. #topchap

(08:35:47) @Thehappyfatgirl This kinda thing.. :)

(08:39:13) Right. Prepare for launch (not lunch. Far too early).

(09:58:18) A little festive desk action...

(11:43:21) @T_Northernbloke Welcome back, AHT!

(11:43:44) @fridgemagnet2 Must be about that time. How's your squirty cream?

(11:44:23) @Thehappyfatgirl Broadcasting House, just north of Oxford Circus. Little known fact is that there's a public cafe in there - worth a visit!

(11:44:34) @lloydbayley Have a good night! :)

(11:45:24) I think it's official - I survived my probation and now I'm a full employee (or similar). Something of a relief, to be honest.

(11:54:20) @RichHarkness Thanks, Richard :) Perfect timing as you say!

(11:55:21) @JamesCridland @Flickr I've resisted connecting my Flickr account to Twitter for now... so many of my photos aren't of sufficent quality.

(12:00:35) @sharonlangridge Thank you :) :)

(13:00:10) @thatsjustme0 Check it twice. ;)

(13:06:46) Oops, @OfficialSanta ... innocent until proven guilty! (but amusingly placed nonetheless) [repost - sorry]

(13:09:54) @RobJD @Bubble2009 Thank you both - identically! :) :)

(13:10:02) @JonBCFC Thanks, dude - and to you!

(19:46:01) @GHOGIT Ha..! Need to sort out my pension fund.. again!

(21:07:32) For information: custard should always be prepared in a glass jug thing. I know all the jargon. #HestonServices

(21:16:51) @AlexThatPlays It is one of the major foodgroups. And is good for you.

(21:17:09) @chepbourne Thank you :) x

(21:17:33) @smartie999 YEAH ~custardy high fives~

(21:18:31) @AlexThatPlays :) :)

(21:27:30) @queenieglass Oh my goodness yes.

(21:34:08) @_windrider @AlexThatPlays I went for normal custard with a beer chaser ;)

(21:34:52) @queenieglass I would join you if I didn't think I would mess it up :)

(21:41:20) Are we all still using Instagram, then? What with the beige-ness and the Twitter not displaying pictures and the advertising? Oh I dunno.

(21:44:13) @_windrider @AlexThatPlays Hey and away we go...

(21:46:45) @_windrider I have it on 7" single... perhaps on the B side of In Dulce Jubilo :)

(21:58:41) @GreavsieE17 It is something of a frustration that Flickr has its limitations... and yet it has beautiful (non-beige) photos ;)

(22:05:13) @GreavsieE17 Flickr has excellent photos.. Instagram more snapshots and moments, with strong colours (and beige)

(22:12:56) @fridgemagnet2 Really..? That's some thick custard!

(14:59:32) @thatsjustme0 How was it? x

(14:59:49) @GHOGIT Great bit of acting - AND not playing a baddy (as far as we can tell at the moment!)

(14:59:58) @skullfunkerry ;)

(15:00:12) @BitsyVonMuffin @PervyWilbury I hope Santa fits! :)

(15:01:39) @Canojar I'll cover you with glitter and tinsel! :) Photo once you're all dressed up please :)

(15:01:50) @TheEggKing Either that or you could have a BONFIRE!

(15:15:41) @Canojar I am sure you will look stunning. No Christmas party for me this year, so I've got to appreciate the glam somewhere ;)

(15:16:27) @TheEggKing I'd have no room for anything else (it's a tiny studio and a mahoosive desk!) :D

(08:59:42) @jamisonmatt Crimble shindig is good.

(08:59:54) @Canojar All under control.

(09:00:19) @thatsjustme0 It's on its way :) :)

(09:00:58) @pearcen Oh my. Get better soon, chief :)

(09:01:21) @gruppox Wow. That is some sweet breakfasting!

(09:04:09) @Canojar Fresh and warm, uhuh :)

(09:04:58) This morning I am mostly be going to be with 'other dads'. I am treating it as an opportunity for time with the children. And observation.

(09:05:56) @TOther_Simon Even the payoff? You clearly have a creative (deranged? ;) mind that time of the morning!

(09:06:52) @gruppox I can't really comment.. I had toasted 10p teacakes WITH SPRINKLES ON(!) from Asda two days past their best before date. Hence 10p/

(09:07:55) @TOther_Simon I'm glad it's not just me. Much of the time I have scatterings rhyming couplets that have absolutely no connection. Nice one!

(09:32:14) RT @ThePoke: My favourite ever comment under a picture: (via @MrLloydSpandex)

(10:29:25) Lenni and her bunny post-ear-surgery (she accidentally pulled it off, but did a great job of repairing it!)

(11:08:01) Family bingo action!

(12:47:44) @smartie999 Good day for it :)

(12:48:40) @TOther_Simon NOT NEWS! :D

(16:13:39) @smartie999 Oh my yes :) :) Keep dry!

(16:23:55) Nice textbook bit of electronics repair - normal wear and tear on the headphone socket has loosened the solder joint.

(18:41:34) RT @johncoles: Here it is, the secret project I've been working on using my @RaspberryPi. Control my Christmas Lights here: ...

(18:46:05) @mostlygeordie *coughs* One of mine is (sorry!)

(18:53:31) @Bubble2009 :) :) A pleasure.

(18:53:53) @smartie999 Shopping is rubbish. Speaking of which.. I need to do some! :D

(19:09:14) @peasbloss Happy happy evening! :)

(20:46:39) @thatsjustme0 That is a NICE looking pool! :)

(21:06:32) @Barwickgreen looks like it's lost its CSS... given that iTunes is a glorified web browser, one does wonder how they manage to mess it up!

(07:57:54) @trevypoos Hell of a long way down - hope there is a decent cuppa waiting for you at work.

(07:59:31) @PaulEdwards_ Absolutely :)

(08:01:04) @Zararugosa @hastillonlyme @poots @brennig @Poorjim6060 @Barlie40 @batteryrunmum @NorahsArk Happy Friday! Please stay safe & warm :) #FF

(08:01:54) @jamisonmatt Always the way, eh?

(08:03:15) Right. Time to inflict myself on the small parts of the world that will be putting up with me today. Onwards and tally ho.

(08:04:27) @helenduffett Quite unusual :)

(08:04:54) @andytuk Two words I never thought I would see in the same sentence :D

(08:05:26) @trevypoos Good stuff. Me? I’m OK, ta :)

(10:35:08) @thatsjustme0 Squeeeeeeze it closed! :)

(10:35:33) @mostlygeordie Awwww... :/

(10:37:07) @ThatAgnes I enjoyed Toxic Girl in 2000(ish?)

(10:38:05) @paulwheatley Strictly speaking one, because they are ostensibly the same colour; they say vegetables are better than fruit for five a day.

(12:29:30) @sparkyannc @claudiahaun I think there's something going about... I have a virus, too. Hot face and all that. Lemsip for EVERYBODY!

(12:31:51) I'll be honest, I'm not really an Etsy sort of person.

(12:49:38) @kyleswager Finally :) :) Just in time for this week's Mac show? ;)

(12:51:20) @lloydbayley G'night :)

(13:21:00) @Thehappyfatgirl I haven't, but I keep meaning to. Pinininininintererest might be able to help me. In the LOUNGE area.

(13:38:57) @thatsjustme0 Welcome to my world ;)

(13:39:06) @vobes Safe trip! :)

(14:00:01) @vobes Maybe it was James Bates..? I've not been organised this year :/

(15:47:05) @vobes All good :) :)

(15:53:54) @poots I hope they could hear you singing though :)

(17:32:53) I do believe there is a weekend about to happen. BRACE BRACE BRACE.

(19:52:49) @Zomby6 @EwenRankin Lookin' good!

(19:56:18) @Zomby6 @EwenRankin :D

(19:56:39) @claudiahaun @sparkyannc Thank you - a festive weekend ahead, I hope! :) :)

(20:07:40) @hadenmaiden Good old Dale :)

(20:41:32) @sm2n HAHAHAAHA! :D

(20:41:49) @sm2n I very rarely look at myself on screen.. bit of a shock :D

(22:14:40) @thatsjustme0 Bed..?

(22:19:00) @sm2n It looks like a delicious amount :)

(22:26:04) @johnny_winter Thanks! I was a bit off my game; I have trouble with words this time of evening ;) @EwenRankin @RichHarkness @claw0101

(07:48:43) RT @EwenRankin: If you find me and say hello you win a prize.

(07:51:08) Turns out the power cut we had the night before last caused the central heating to reset and turn off. My reaction? Need an alert for that..

(07:57:15) @edtjones Absolutely- already running nagios (for which there's a great Windows widget)... just a case of creating an interface :)

(07:58:34) @tamarakuzminski I would, yes - but I'd keep the bathroom warm and well ventilated so that the sealant has a chance to dry afterwards.

(08:00:38) @alexgeoghegan We live in mid-terrace, so it got a little cool (woke up to 15 degrees), but manageable - the lack of hot water sold it :D

(08:01:11) @smartie999 I shall manufacture a PRODUCT:)

(08:43:28) Hmm. Broken M1 this morning... still queueing to get on. ~sigh~

(08:46:48) Slow M1 southbound at junction 10 - probably an accident between 9 & 8

(12:06:53) @smartie999 Not cheap - sensible :)

(12:08:24) @Thehappyfatgirl Kinda like playing sardines. Although you mayo regret that... but I'm sure you'll tweet when you've fin-ished eating it.

(12:08:50) @Thehappyfatgirl My puns were rubbish, but I hope you'll stay :D

(12:09:24) Have I said hello yet today? Nope, probably not. Annoyingly this is my favourite time of day to make music.

(12:11:47) @Thehappyfatgirl I try to behave. Try.

(13:16:54) @TOther_Simon I happen to like constructing two word sentences with a non-comparable adverb and a noun describing location. So there.

(13:17:15) @Zararugosa Well hello :)

(13:17:27) @GHOGIT LIONEL!

(13:18:12) @Thehappyfatgirl I use my real name, and my mother, mother-in-law and boss follow me. None of which helps :D

(13:18:21) @R2UK GREETINGS! :)

(13:45:12) @joanneh234 Never too late! I'm at work, so music making will have to wait :D x

(13:45:30) @Thehappyfatgirl Heh. Maybe I need another account :D

(14:07:03) @effieoffie Different pavement sauce sounds like one of your dreams :D

(14:07:32) Right.. better eat before I fade away*

(14:19:31) @leica0000 Pretty much sums up the internet. That is a LOT of nyans :D

(14:19:58) @thatsjustme0 A very merry Christmas to you. Very. (That sucks ;)

(14:20:05) RT @leica0000: Good grief!

(14:44:00) @leica0000 :D :D :D

(14:44:17) @tamarakuzminski Heehee.. I completely forgot about geometry :D

(15:08:13) @meanjeen I'm glad it's not just me... cold showers are the worst on chilly morning! :D

(15:09:25) May I be the first to wish you a happy new year?

(15:09:46) @Matildamouse @junkmanuk Aww :)

(15:11:03) @lloydbayley Good morning/afternoon :) I will certainly give it a go! Nice bit of metalwork, by the way! :)

(15:11:42) @PontoonDock <BLINK>00:00</BLINK>

(15:17:16) @RichHarkness The best one.

(16:12:13) @brettsr Is that the Radio Theatre... looks SO different under all the lights!

(16:44:13) @batwench And a very happy dance to you, too. One more day (and a bit) to go for me!

(17:03:00) @alexgeoghegan @brennig Is flirting shallow and insubstantial? I do hope not :D

(18:23:33) Good heavens. Better go home.

(19:50:16) @crabbyknickers @miz_shake68 Hello lovely you two. Better days tomorrow, I hope!

(22:28:57) @washmysocks31 I'm not far behind you - night night! :)

(22:29:21) @BeachBelles Gives me a headache :)

(22:30:04) @BeachBelles That was, in fact, the original title for the hit Neil Diamond wrote for UB40 ;)

(22:31:10) @lloydbayley :) :) Good morning - welcome to Friday :)

(22:31:24) @PaulEdwards_ Yup. But she would be VERY cross if I did.

(22:31:58) @brennig n'night :)

(22:32:25) Right. I had better be back to 100% health tomorrow or so help me I'll not be. Good night.

(22:35:13) @BryanRutherford @106jack There's nothing more humiliating than pulling yourself out of the office secret Santa hat.

(22:35:54) @BryanRutherford @106jack Apart, of course, from all your colleagues watching you pull yourself out of the office secret santa hat.

(22:36:28) @peasbloss Good evening :) And, indeed, nearly good night :)

(22:36:53) @fiverscarrot Thank you! I shall do my best to achieve BOTH. Overnight. Sleep well too when you get there!

(22:37:25) I had one single pondering while on my walk, incidentally. I need to make it easier to create music in my studio. It's too much of a faff.

(22:40:15) @robertpopper Delightfully awkward - well done, Robin!

(22:40:26) @Epithemiou @robertpopper THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL.

(23:24:47) I believe Woman In Love is one of the greatest songs ever made. Absolutely stunning bit of Gibb/Streisand action. It’s late. I can say that.

(17:55:22) @RichHarkness Eep. I will play in a mo.. haven't had much chance to play on my iPod Touch of late :)

(17:58:04) @PlainTalkingHR An uplifting, inspirational piece- thank you for sharing it! :) @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @hrbeginner @Lindylooloo

(17:59:47) Extra bonus being home early (a benefit of starting work shortly after 8): a chance to help the children with their homework.

(18:03:55) I have an ominous feeling that I'm the only person in the world who thinks Windows 8 has really interesting, useful features. I like it.

(18:04:40) @AlexGFox It's a hard lesson, but it's best that they learn it now rather than later ;)

(18:06:06) @ian262 I like the Modern interface - nice to have full screen apps. Search is good, too - and the Windows key comes into its own. :)

(18:06:48) @ian262 I will gladly admit that I am in the minority of people who 'get' it... yes, it needs developing, but it is a fresh paradigm.

(18:08:23) @ian262 Windows-D is your friend ;) This netbook boots up in seconds, and shuts down really quickly.. new lease of life and all that :) :)

(18:09:05) @AlexGFox Half the time it's just reminding them what they did in school.. sometimes when they get home it's like the day never happened :D

(18:10:48) @AlexGFox Yeah, but ask them what they ~had~ for lunch and it's "Er... can't remember. It was beige."

(18:14:49) @AlexGFox The best I can hope for is not having them resent me when they're adults... we're not bad Dads.. we're just Dads :D

(19:37:53) People's computers are very much like their brains.

(19:38:36) @cyberdonkey A very wise proposition.

(19:39:17) @Canojar Ooh.. where are ya?

(19:42:57) @ms_howard @Ken_Phillips :D :D

(19:44:01) @RobJD Not from Windows 7, but as a replacment for Windows XP it's brilliant :) Only a slight issue with the netbook's native resolution :)

(19:44:28) @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @hrbeginner @Lindylooloo I had a fine trip home once I got on it - thank you :) Good day?

(19:44:41) @AlexGFox Oh nay neigh ;)

(19:58:21) @RobJD Worth a punt for sure - if anyone is still running Vista, there is definitely no excuse :D

(08:16:09) @miz_shake68 Mornin’ :) And yes ~trepidation~

(08:36:43) I'm surprised there hasn't been a recall of those huge black pickups (Mitsubish Animal etc) - none seem to have their indicators wired up.

(08:38:13) @__Gran2F__ Mornin' :) Have a splendid one!

(08:38:28) @BaronHawkey Oh SO much better, thank you! Ooh.. happy Belgium!

(08:39:08) I do like the arrangement of Robbie Williams's "Candy". Which means it really shouldn't be played on Radio 1 #iamold

(10:56:58) @sharonlangridge Perhaps I should have included the word 'descant' (and, indeed, incessant :D) in the terms of the definition;)

(10:57:22) @PlainTalkingHR Good luck, Bina.. you can do it!

(10:59:04) The descant of man.

(11:48:55) A quartet of junior male doctors issuing stage instructions truly show what it is to be British. Four man orderly cue. #aporopunofnothing

(12:06:22) @mostlygeordie Not necessarily illegal (and it's tough outside our jurisdiction) but require consent from the victim to broadcast for sure.

(12:07:28) @mostlygeordie I would add (and I may do an Audioboo) I believe it was not just the prank call - it was the media & press furore afterwards.

(12:08:55) @iconfessimageek @ee it could still be the fastest (domestic) router even if it's not the fastest ethernet (layer 2) switch :D #getoutclause

(14:44:45) @mostlygeordie I daresay the hospital wasn't prepared for such a thing...

(14:45:24) I still find internet banking both frightening and exhilarating.

(14:47:55) @LilythePurr That fine line may well involve the question "WHERE HAS ALL MY MONEY GONE?!!?!!!1!!!!!1!!eleven!?!!" #misclick

(14:48:31) @WhimsicalWife Fringe cutting, blind cleaning.. it's all being able to see, isn't it? :D

(14:50:36) @JoOstermeyer Sweet lord.

(14:51:22) Part of me wants to make music. Part of me just wants to doze. The sleepy part of me is winning.

(14:52:15) @WhimsicalWife If there's one place to carry out deep psyche examination it's Twitter ;)

(17:26:04) @JoOstermeyer Wicked! :)

(17:26:33) @wkdstepmother What @poots said :) Definitely.

(17:26:43) @__Gran2F__ Hello :) I'm sleepy! :)

(18:27:37) @xlaux :) It is lovely that it's not taken for granted :) x

(19:15:27) Mmm rewrite rules and Malibu.

(19:23:14) @mostlygeordie @LilacNun I BLESS YOU BOTHS.

(19:23:49) @sparkyannc Should be a penny difference.

(19:24:36) @LilacNun Car faces are important.

(19:25:35) @sparkyannc :D :D

(19:27:12) I was introduced to the idea of 'car darts' by @nxmee earlier. He will not be allowed NEAR our cars while he still knows about that.

(19:34:07) @sparkyannc @poots Yes :) And it shone through - she played wonderfully (I shall boo it when I get a mo :)

(19:34:52) @__Gran2F__ A bit of everything today.. Lenni performed in a Christmas concert and I went to a small village to collect a microphone :D :)

(19:36:40) @poots :) :) :)

(19:37:47) @effieoffie Y'know, I thought about exactly that yesterday.. need to get out with my GPS soon! How about you?

(19:38:53) @__Gran2F__ The concert was lovely, thank you :) And the small village was a passing through point nearby :) Relaxation time now yay! :)

(19:46:39) @__Gran2F__ YES! :) :) Please save me a prawn cracker ;)

(19:47:13) @effieoffie Haha! WOW! Did ya find it? And did you put 'get orff moi laaand' in the logbook? :D

(19:48:59) @sparkyannc :) :) :) So do you, my talented pal :) @poots

(20:42:39) @shiftrunstop Oh gosh. I fear I may have missed this one...

(21:14:04) @shiftrunstop Gonna make a note.. and head for the studio :)

(13:08:22) @ThreeUK Three? #threelovesxmas Or similar.

(13:09:07) Putting some proper trousers on and making a list (not checking it twice. Who do you think I am? For heaven's sake...)

(13:09:43) @AlexGFox I have clearly learned nothing.

(13:11:44) @RadioKate BIG HUG!

(13:12:17) @RadioKate WHAT?! *baffled face* You share a house with the legendary @timoncheese ..? This is truly a home of greatness. WOW! Hurrah :)

(15:32:11) RT @GHOGIT: @syzygy When you say 'out the front & out the back' is that why you've put proper trousers on?

(15:32:35) @GHOGIT Inconvenient as it is, yes.. :D

(15:34:23) Here's some school run shenanigans: wait for your offspring on a bit of pavement just behind where an ignorantly parked car needs to go. Ha.

(15:35:44) @mabes111 I fear if your drive is already partitioned and fully allocated as your main HD it is not possible to resize it. I will check.

(17:16:36) @batwench Gonna walk everywhere until then..? ;)

(21:36:00) @jinglemad Hello :) Trying to listen to JingleMad Radio on my Internet Wireless set, but the MP3 stream seems to be dead... please help..?!

(21:38:39) @jinglemad I tell a lie.. the link at the bottom of the "Schedule" page has the port number of 8210 , not 8120.. that works :) :)

(21:40:55) The BluRay player and Wii are both carrying out software updates. This is the sort of thing I get up to when Beth's out of the house. HA.

(22:15:51) @ali_hutch That's exacly what I was going to tweet :D @mcdwebster

(22:19:11) @streakmachine I was hoping it would turn it into a Wii U. But no such luck :D It will probably not work properly any more!

(22:19:39) @AlexGFox It was either that or binge drinking. And I have completely run out of binge juice.

(22:21:38) @brennig To be honest, all too often carrying out such ventures at this time of the evening ends in disaster. On this occasion, I was lucky!

(22:22:58) @PlainTalkingHR I think I got away with it.. just don't tell.. oh. :D

(22:23:37) @mcdwebster I have already broken your record for Not Working There ;) @ali_hutch

(22:23:56) @brennig Love that!

(22:31:44) Hm. Moving my mouse to the right hand scrollbar on Windows 8 sometimes makes the odd pop out, well, pop out. Quite annoying.. #feature

(15:57:44) I don't think @superalora has ever wished a month away as much as November.. she wants to get that first Advent Calendar door open :D

(20:48:51) @Canojar Y'know, I never had Subbuteo as a kid. Never had a train set either. Space hopper, though? Ohhh yeah :D

(20:50:57) @mostlygeordie YEAH! Sort of wish I were there. Sort of (I'm in my dressing gown :D)

(20:52:24) @Mizzuks Yes. Oh yes. Up the right hand side. Aberdeen?

(20:58:05) @TOther_Simon It would NOT be safe for him to go. Walk out the door.

(20:59:01) @LilacNun *BIIIIIG HUG* (but not so big it does any damage to your backular system) x

(20:59:51) @LilacNun I wish you lived here. I have at least one of those.

(21:01:40) @Mizzuks I will find you one and send him/her round your house :D

(21:02:17) @Canojar An inflatable one..? We had one of those..! For a while (it got quickly popped after it got bopped :D)

(21:02:56) @smartie999 Oooh... make them talk at @Mizzuks ... see if she can make out ANYTHING they're saying..! ;)

(21:05:33) @DeanAbbott Haha! That's a lot of little cardboard doors to open :D I used to find myself stockpiling them.. days of five ;) @superalora

(21:06:02) @YourMrBumbles @smartie999 @superalora LOLLY SCRAMBLE! (or regional variation)

(21:08:36) That fey posh comedian who looks like he's twelve with the big stupid hair hasn't got big hair on #HIGNFY. Not his script, either. Well.

(21:09:01) @Canojar I LOVED caps! :) :) I wish I could remember more of my childhood :D

(21:09:26) @lsrwLuke Careful now!

(21:10:54) I am asking @poots who they're talkiing about on #HIGNFY. I am only half-watching it, I am really tired and have no idea about Teh News.

(21:11:24) @Mizzuks Quite odd!

(21:12:32) Boris Johnson was made for the the internet. That is all.

(21:23:21) @Canojar Yeeeeehaaaaaa!

(21:34:23) @PaulEdwards_ Hurrah :) Hope you get a Good Sit Down :) :)

(21:38:24) @Canojar The time will come when I will spend a whole weekend just behaving like a kid from the 1970s :D xx

(21:40:00) I have nearly had enough of John Bishop's voice. Better go to bed. Good night. See you when I wake up.. Wednesday?
