(09:17:20) Both. Accident southbound just after junction 8 of the M1.. lanes 1&2 closed. Oops.

(13:53:27) Working from home this afternoon - treated to a visit from my favourite Small French Meter Reader. She's called Dominique and is great :)

(18:04:32) One of the delights of working from home is that I could witness the @UKTesco Delivery Person. This one was rubbish. Quite disappointing.

(09:33:59) Good morning. It's all go. Well, abut 65% of it is. The rest (i.e. me) is sitting around drinking coffee. It shouldn't be.

(18:41:48) RT @MintFM: MintFM would like to welcome James Hart, @syzygy to our broadcasting family! #fb

(07:27:40) Friday. Statistically the most sung about day of the week (citation needed). Good morning, nonetheless :)

(07:47:30) I would like to apologise to Apple for besmirching their iTunes store; it turns out they did use my credit, but didn't update the store...

(08:34:49) MT @svartling: Facebook Cuts Off API Support For Vine App - http://t.co/1UhtD1CK ("THAT's what you get for banjaxing Instagram, Twitter!")

(12:21:42) Me, just now: 'Saying "A bloke called Keith told us and it seemed to work" doesn't quite cut it.' This is true for all things in life. FACT.

(16:01:23) Rehydrating.

(16:10:17) RT @dwhelton: This reads like an Onion article, but it is from a blog. Wonder if it is true... hilarious if so: http://t.co/3DlbJSbT

(17:59:03) Tools down. YEAH.

(20:05:33) I can never remember what hubris means. But then, I don't need to.

(23:13:24) Early to bed, and early to rise, makes me remember archaic rhymes. Night.

(08:03:22) Good morning. Is it too late to make a new year's resolution? Too soon for Lent, I fear. It's the slump. The slump I tells ya.

(09:15:54) Footballers are kicking children now, are they?

(11:13:08) Fastidious.

(11:13:15) Conjecture.

(11:13:27) (Just making notes of words I can never remember when I need them).

(12:45:56) Radio clocks: The MSF 60 kHz time & frequency signal will be shut down from 09:00 UTC on Tue 29 Jan until 18:00 UTC on Wed 30 Jan 2013. #NPL

(08:19:11) Darn it. Still out of stock of Diggity.

(10:31:08) Wardrobe malfunction this morning... second-from top button was left undone on my work shirt. I'm not in a trendy wine bar now, y'know.

(17:01:44) I've got sinusache. Pronounced "sigh new satchee"

(17:05:10) Looks like someone here has about as much ADD as I have.. just read a shell script comment that simply says "this script cannot"

(19:41:09) I really love your tiger's feet.

(19:56:42) Thinking of doing a radio show demo thing.

(10:51:04) Not the most impressive start to the day... wandering out of the house without my work bag had knock on effects. Typical Tuesday.

(10:52:07) (Also I nearly slipped over on the way to work.. after seeing a man actually slip over. It's hazardous out there. Hazardous, I tells ya).

(10:52:49) I am therefore *this* close to sending an email to the entire occupants of the office asking who has biscuits and I can I have them.

(15:45:08) Graphs is just one of the reasons I follow you.

(16:26:40) Wow.. pretty.. http://t.co/QBgp8i1B

(19:12:28) Right. That does it. I formally hate Apple. £12.50 of credit; I buy an app for £13.99. How much does iTunes take off my debit card? £13.99!

(10:05:38) Morning. My work computer is on a go-slow (in fact a not-go-at-all-stuck-on-the-"Welcome"-screen). Time to brew some coffee. Shoulders back.

(11:39:06) Two similar snow scenes in swift succession on my timeline.. made me look twice! https://t.co/I3ECoH2M https://t.co/uOW4tNRh Neato! :)

(16:27:46) I am everso fond of @SpaceKate and thus want to send her into space. Please help: http://t.co/3sFFWUdA

(18:37:30) Too many tools, too little creativity. Bleh.

(19:11:58) The children are doing an online quiz: "Which Muppet are you?" This offers more punchlines than Twitter's character count will allow.

(19:12:49) "The one that is doing a pointless online quiz." For example.

(09:43:41) Really weird rainy snow. It's settling though. @nxmee is playing Minecraft and pretending to be Bear Grylls. Trying to do the voice...

(09:53:43) Hmm.. @nxmee is playing Bear Grylld. Who is @superalora playing? "The voice inside his head" #bizarrechildren

(10:03:18) For some reason, @poots is looking up German winter obligations. Arguably, Eiszapfen is a cool word.

(00:20:53) Playing one of those songs that gives my emotions a punch. I wish I could make music that had as profound an effect. Beyond bed time. Night!

(07:38:51) I play too many computer games to be allowed near my daughter's hair, ever since I gave her a pwny tail.

(07:42:28) My joke on the matter: So they've been putting horsemeat in burgers have they? That would explain all the nagging. #tooearly #toolate

(08:48:50) A couple of weeks back, Lenni and i created a new word: drizzard. Today is the complement- it's drizzling snow (hallelujah?) - snizzle.

(09:30:29) Fringe benefit of working from home: putting araldite on the letterbox.

(12:06:09) Settled on some @amazingradio to have as the soundtrack to my work. A pleasant diversion from the norm. A bit like Lorraine @Bowen707 .

(21:01:17) Who's going to help me get an EarlyNight™? Actually, that sounds like something John Lewis would sell.
