(09:16:07) Morning. Something.

(22:07:30) This time tomorrow, I will be clambering down the @LateNightloaf in a most unladylike way. Requests and goats always welcome!

(22:08:01) For now, though, I am orf. Night!

(09:48:17) Bit o' the ol' housework there. Putting the snow paraphernalia away. That's scuppered it.

(11:03:05) I used the word 'specious' in front of my son, but I think I got away with it (it was in a conversation about Cispa. He is a bright lad)

(07:10:00) And so to work.

(16:47:12) A bit distracted choosing some party music. Not sure I'll be able to sneak in some classic Bali Brahmbhatt or Laziest Men on Mars tomorrow.

(18:15:32) My MP3 collection needs a serious tidy up. Not least because it has at least one Victoria Beckham song in it.

(08:04:23) Good morning. It's Thursday. I did a 'thirsty/Thursday' joke with Lenni yesterday. That's it. Her childhood is over.

(08:05:09) 100% full of cold this morning. That's not true. Only one nostril, so 50%.

(08:08:15) HAPPY BIRTHDAY, @Mad4mogzz - you don't look it! :)

(08:10:01) My waking dream involved discovering a @BritishTech Mac presenter lived across the road, and dismantling & reassembling his kitchen tap.

(08:36:41) "Technology is an important part of everything I do.. W<skips ad>"

(09:07:32) This tweet is PROMOTED! Bit of a waste of time, to be honest.

(07:10:49) Scientists have confirmed that no atoms have a sense of humour. Which is no laughing matter.

(07:14:27) RT @Bexhill_Police: ATTENTION: Fire in London Rd #Bexhill. We are on scene with @EastSussexFRS. Avoid the area,we may need to close the roa…

(08:56:15) I am never going to Bedford again.

(08:58:24) What is a JLS?

(09:07:17) There is a bird outside that whistles the first few notes of White Town's "Your Woman". Most distracting.

(09:44:06) RT @Mad4mogzz: @syzygy I think they sell sofas & have a sale on 99.9% of the time :-)

(10:54:53) Thank goodness for pineapple juice. #sorethroat #better

(15:55:37) 100 uses for a Sports Direct mug. Fortunately, that is binary, and all of them include giving it to other people.

(17:02:19) This is gonna be brilliant... #betterthantheiOSversion #bbcradio http://t.co/wZ9z9Yk3br

(04:35:10) Pretty much fixed. Going to bed, in a minute, I think.

(21:13:33) So so sorry.. Back in a mo! Rebooting...

(21:25:47) Late Night Loaf encountered some rather odd technical issues this week. Sorry - not going to get it sorted tonight. Next week, then. Night!

(22:19:18) RT @MintFM: Listeners may be interested to know there will be a Dodgy Phono Cable burning tomorrow. Stupid thing #LateNightDuff http://t.co…

(08:50:17) Good morning. I've pretty much done a day's work already, and it's only nearly 10am. Darn this being on call business.

(15:30:44) Absolutely pooped. Better not be like this tomorrow.

(21:48:45) Still going.

(16:59:25) Excerpt from a little red car wash http://t.co/xs1ZpP5ysE via @audioboo

(17:12:51) Nobody has collected the barbecue and the scanner from our Freecycle bin. This is why I don't do Freecycling any more. IT'S NOT A CUPBOARD.

(17:18:19) On the upside, Google Now seems to think it's going to take me ten minutes to get home from here. Right now I'm on the sofa. At home. BONUS!

(17:18:55) Also: cracking bit of #BTCC racing today. Hardly any crashes and some really good driving action. Yeah.

(17:19:23) I have reached the stage where I am tweeting because I can't be bothered to get up and do anything else. This is not good. Going now.

(21:49:13) Taking a running leap at sleep. I hope it's a soft landing. Good night.

(11:34:24) Luton's "chequered church" on a sunny day http://t.co/opvSye56Op

(13:24:48) Went in a shop and there had been a D**ly M**l landslide. I couldn't bring myself to touch them to tidy them up.. http://t.co/GM7ibrBwFk

(13:47:50) I have absolutely no idea why Google Now is telling me about the Southampton vs Swansea football match. Is it because of my onesie tweet?

(22:20:37) Bed time. Rest well when you do, peacefully and delightfully.

(06:27:45) Good morning and Happy Nearly Weeknd to @PlainTalkingHR @Bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @hrbeginner @colontropogo @Lindylooloo #localfolk

(06:41:26) Tuned into @106jack and they're playing what they want, which is mainly Dad music today.

(06:52:51) My kidneys hurt again. Quite annoying.

(06:54:22) Having a first listen of this year's #Eurovision songs courtesy of @DVVHolland.. I quite like most of the songs so far (except Estonia!)

(07:06:44) Right.. better get on. Time waits for no man, and Tom Waits for music.

(09:28:19) Suffering minor body failure. It may well be that I make a doctor's appointment. Hmm.

(09:36:53) I think there's something a bit wrong with my brain; the main @brainitch / earworms I've been suffering recently have been mobile ringtones.

(12:31:22) Reply to @batwench Wild horses and, indeed, the lurgy wouldn't stop me taking @poots out this evening :)

(14:23:07) This is rather crazy... six of the most famous voice-overs, and only 300 people have seen the video.. http://t.co/0HITfCBflh

(11:31:01) RT @Hemmo: If you dropped a fancy looking gold and pearl earring at Oxford Circus I've handed it in to the station manager at Vic line exit.

(12:32:53) The best place to buy a onesie is Swansea.

(12:55:32) I have to say the microphone on the iPhone 4/4S/5 sounds really good. A really quiet pre-amp and amazing frequency range. Lovely.

(13:21:29) Time to engage D**ly M**l kitten plugin - moaning about Samantha Brick is happening again. https://t.co/xfuscIhCy4 https://t.co/Ot8aESz60I

(13:38:56) Doesn't happen very often.. I had to listen to the end of Rimsky-Korsakov's Story of the Kalendar Prince when it came on @ClassicFM ... wow!

(14:02:09) Here's something I didn't know... this: http://t.co/x7QHLItZ09 is a symbol that means Standby not Power on/off (IEC 5009)

(15:13:04) RT @danieljones2012: On this day in 1930 it was announced "today there is no news" So they just played piano music instead.

(15:27:11) RT @sparkyannc: Want to be a broadcast engineer? Paid apprenticeship run by the BBC just launched - please apply (and RT) :) http://t.c ...

(16:23:36) I'm fairly sure I saw a copy of Private Eye languishing flappily by the side of the road as I walked to work earlier. Private Eye, though?

(17:01:00) Holiday Inn at the end of the rainbow http://t.co/2SdoP5Ee7T

(19:44:09) And yes, I am trying to ruin #TwitterMusic for you.

(19:55:07) Aquabats - Hey Homies #nowPlaying

(21:59:21) Totally got mobile device amnesia just then... I was going to look something up but checked Twitter and completely forgot what it was...

(20:23:22) Tried "Perception" - not even closely nearly as good as Elementary. Which is splendid. I should work as a media journalist or somethink.

(21:11:53) Nearly time for bedtime for bed. Have a lovely sleep when you do. G'night.

(21:20:21) Before I head to bed, I've uploaded last night's Late Night Loaf for listenagainability. Try saying THAT underwater! http://t.co/iBUhVrToSt

(07:30:23) Good morning to local fab folk @PlainTalkingHR @bazmati2020 @wkdstepmother @poots @hrbeginner and bonus GOOD LUCK to @Lindylooloo :)

(17:47:49) Hmm... went for Freecycle over Freegle. I shall report back on the Hot Giveaway Action.

(19:54:50) Oh dear... first Boston and now this is my office... http://t.co/hkBUdz0WF7 WHAT IS GOING ON..?!

(15:22:22) On my walk to the office this morning, I saw a custom Smart ForFour where the tyres were, combined, almost half the width of the car. Crazy.
