(09:52:13) Good morning. It's Webinar Thursday. Sykpe headsets on standby...

(21:06:02) An interesting article about Arriva losing the Luton Airport to London run.. and being less than chuffed about it: http://t.co/IsxGsnrnSh

(21:07:49) Oh, and while I think about it - I heartily recommend Grayson Perry's third Reith lecture.. an enlightening listen.: http://t.co/XbG3jGpkux

(23:33:03) Spare bit of voiceover work done this evening. A good way to spend all hallow's eve... bed now. Night night.

(00:06:53) I really enjoyed tonight's Late Night Loaf - made so much sweeter by the company it kept :) Thank you for listening! Night night :)

(09:02:50) Morning. Of all the songs to get stuck in my head this morning, it had to be "Gaudete." by Erasure. For premature festive exuberance. Hmm.

(12:12:15) Just got berated for making a cup of tea without my shoes on. Kettle sloshing risks. Or similar.

(12:49:16) I think if I didn't suffer from lethologica I might be a polymath. But I just had to look up lethologica. I lose.

(13:43:53) Oh that is brilliant.. I removed my voice-over gig on @fiverr well over a month ago but someone has managed to place an order! Bit broken...

(14:17:52) Like a phoenix with impractical shoes on, last night's Late Night Loaf is available for download.. http://t.co/iBUhVrBO0V - buy one get one!

(20:47:37) Catching up with last night's #Elementary, yet another random connection with my life; I met @poots when shopping for a UV pen for wall art.

(22:51:00) Early night attempt.. defying gravity with pace and abandon. Bring it. Night night.

(07:52:26) Good morrow. Could do with a cornucopia this morning, but porridge will have to do.

(07:55:17) Happy birthday to @Superblouse. You don't look it.

(16:44:50) Walking away, shaking my head, saying "It's a network thing..."

(20:26:59) In just over 90 minutes, Late Night Loaf stumbles awkwardly onto http://t.co/d9KyhPKtLN - it's there if you want a go on it! Bring a duvet.

(22:07:29) Late Night Loaf is LIVE on air, on http://t.co/d9KyhPKtLN! For musical enlightenment and a groove that you can feel(?) tune in. If you like.

(09:04:23) Good morning. Looks like our part of the world got off fairly lightly.. a bit of gazebo garden sharing a couple of doors down, but hey.

(12:06:40) I didn't realise this was an Ig-nobel winning thing - http://t.co/V6CGsRRRuS (h/t @akrabat)

(12:07:24) I want to start an entertainment company called "The Event Horizon" that takes bookings but nothing ever comes out of it.

(15:38:58) Hurrah for free 0800 calls on @giffgaff- I could use my mobile & bluetooth for this conference call rather than handset/shoulder agony. WOO!

(22:21:23) RT @EwenRankin: The BIG Show is posted with @acedtect @jgamet @paulums @syzygy @Superalora @EwenRankin http://t.co/oQnvCLxe5s Pls RT

(22:32:47) Right. Time to hide under my duvet while I remember quite how far I am from the seaside where this happens all the time or something. Night!

(09:39:47) If I were in charge of the British Fencing Association, I would consider rebranding the sport "Sword With Friends"

(12:35:29) I'm listening to Jean Michel Jarre for the first time in years (They're playing Zoolook on Soma FM Underground 80s) - so ahead of its time!

(16:17:13) Ominousness level: 2.

(16:20:31) Worth installing BBM on my Androidy thing..? Still a bit undecided... I have enough trouble keeping up with other messaging systems...

(22:13:05) Well, regardless of the time/zone, I think I'm going to take myself to bed. And I'll get up when I wake up tomorrow. Or Monday. Night night!

(22:14:17) And, indeed, good luck to everyone who's on clock change duty tonight. Whatever the plan is, I hope it works. Twice.

(07:11:24) Morning. I'm always (angel) delighted when the forecast says "Sprinkles". http://t.co/xWrAkmEEO0

(12:45:09) RT @EwenRankin: BIG Show tonight is @jgamet @paulums @Gazmaz @EwenRankin @Syzygy and his Hudl Toting Daughter with THE Review. 8pm Pls RT

(09:46:31) RT @TimHarford: How to use 3 spare minutes. Good advice. http://t.co/3ERhiLn2dW

(15:01:21) I've been hard at it today. No time to tweet. Oh hang on.

(19:20:32) An evening in front of the television, I think.. Dave Gorman, Gogglebox, Bouffants and possibly some sitcom or other (results may vary).

(20:33:12) Oh and Elementary. 100% complete evening.

(21:51:28) In bed before 11pm.. that's a good end to a busy but pleasant day. I shall wish you goodnight, and then, like magic, Friday.

(13:27:43) Last Night's Late Night Loaf is buttered (hiding a multitude of sins) and cut into triangles for another listen! http://t.co/iBUhVrBO0V PIE!

(17:54:40) Home. Rather enjoyed being part of a 3 Aygo car-train on the way into Luton this evening. I wonder what the record is...

(17:56:06) Also: why do Smart Cars have parking sensors? You can get one into a space the size of a postage stamp.

(18:06:00) Checking out the last @intlBeige SHOTWTTCS before their international hiatus and move to Beige HQ (or Planet Beige? Beige Central?)

(18:40:50) RT @drhappymac: @syzygy shame your name isn't Jason then you could have been Jason and the Aygonauts!!

(06:17:54) Good morning. Full of the joys of spong. Well actually a bit of a zombie. Day off today for adventure and miscellany. Then Loafing.

(10:05:24) It's nice to take a stealthy day off before half term...

(12:18:14) "We will have more information to share with you about the Lumia 1520’s audio capabilities soon" - @nokia_uk ...so excited about this phone.

(18:38:50) Tonight - 10pm UK time.. Late Night Loaf. It's what Tuesdays were meant to look like when they're all done and dusty. Mint FM. Later YEAH!

(23:16:01) Another fun @LateNightloaf all finished, just like Tuesday - thank you for listening if you did! :)

(06:09:42) Morning. Monday... the sort of thing Microsoft would come up with; we all use it, but it's kind-of annoying.

(09:22:23) Achey upper arms. Maybe I was doing butterfly stroke in my dreams. Which would explain why the mattress ended up in the lounge.

(09:58:53) I do like to leave a nice cheese bap or two on the kitchen table instead of taking it to work. Perhaps @poots would like them instead :D

(10:11:41) Amazon: you can get satire there too, now.. ! http://t.co/PD75QApwTn

(10:12:29) Memo to myself: think before I "reply all"..

(10:50:30) RT @johndredge: http://t.co/n8vbhWBDxv Have writted and acted for this, tis on at 13.30 todayyyyyy

(22:10:50) Autosave is always most appreciated seconds after you finally switch it on.

(11:28:35) Introducing the children to the wonders of the Paternoster lift. Understandably they don't want one installed in the house. #scaryliftofdoom

(12:59:46) Doing a factory reset on my Nexus 7; it's running painfully slowly (despite being on 4.3) It can't help that I've got 75+ apps installed!

(16:22:43) My maximum speed today was 22mph.

(22:28:08) Bit tired out after splashing around and ironing (not at the same time). Oh and I fixed the coffee machine #smallvictories Night night! :)

(02:41:51) I'm not awake.

(12:37:50) Did 'behind the sofa' today. Profit: £1.05.

(13:21:32) I just took apart the coffee machine, although I wasn't bored. @AccidentalP

(23:40:07) Right.. bed. A little late but not necessarily a bad thing, since I have experienced a modicum of creativity this evening. I like a modicum.

(23:40:17) Oh and night night you.

(06:40:42) Enjoyed a breakfast table discussion about "What is acceptable to put on YouTube" with @superalora. My spinning mug didn't make the cut.

(06:49:36) Just saw a message on the left hand side of my Google Mail window that simply said "Something's not right." All a bit unsettling.

(12:02:17) RT @RHA: Bowie & Mercury's isolated vocal from Under Pressure. This is just incredible. http://t.co/XFs9ycEWKa

(17:35:56) Hmm.. should really have gone home about an hour ago.. but at least I'll miss the traffic. Busy Friday action.

(19:58:35) Made it to the gym despite the M1's disregard for my health and fitness. A bit of running about is definitely helped with music in my ears.

(09:22:22) Bit tired today. Quiet Thursday.

(20:15:11) Gogglebox may well be the funniest thing on the telly. Like TVBurp but without the fight before the ad break.

(21:53:34) A brief moment of musical endeavour this evening... got my eclectic guitar and loop pedal out before bed. Simple pleasures. Night night!

(09:05:14) Good morning. All a bit chaotic today - these dark starts are not conducive to getting up. Time for a banana. Sunshine fruit (probably)

(09:46:26) This week's @LateNightLoaf nonsense - with technical issues & cat litter - is available for download! HERE! http://t.co/iBUhVrBO0V ZUMBA!

(11:06:51) I've never seen that happen before: the command history on one server seems intent on removing the first letter from every line I type. Odd.

(12:22:20) MT @poots http://t.co/dynGkW0boe - I love this, I think @syzygy will too. // Yes. Yes I do. We need MORE people like this /cc @mick_sheridan

(13:20:26) RT @Borbassi: Sepia is the colour of nostalgia, or beige à vous, as its known in France.

(13:27:43) Genius idea.. turn your coffee cup into a handy carriable bucket thing.. @Handle_It_UK @Scanditwitchen should get some for their takeaways.

(06:50:23) Morning. On the hunt for the chirruping smoke alarm....

(08:32:34) Ahh that delightful ten minutes of boot-up time waiting for the hard drive light to go off is complete. Challenging Tuesday action...

(10:54:41) "Verbose garbage collection" - that's me at home. http://t.co/JPyta6LWcF

(14:12:35) Music hath charms.

(15:51:05) Earlier I thought I was listening to Spotify but I was actually listening to last.fm. I don't know what the significance of that is.

(20:08:46) RT @fridgemagnet2: On tonight's @latenightloaf I shall be reviewing this weeks Luton On Sunday.There's other stuff on the show as well I be…

(20:24:37) In just over half an hour, it's LATE NIGHT LOAF on http://t.co/d9KyhPKtLN - music you may not have heard before AND me. Rambling on. YEAH!

(09:27:37) Good morning. Busy day thing. Busy week even. Feeling distinctly average. Are we really nearly half way through October..?!

(17:11:07) Better be off homium. See if I can stretch me sinews later.

(20:47:39) Done what I call my "Rubbish Triathlon".. 45 minutes of flailing about on a running machine, rowing machine and pretend bike. Worn out now.

(17:34:03) It's all very well setting the oven to 180 degrees, but now I can't get the door open.

(17:36:21) Back home after picking up Geoff The Glitchy Silver Prius. They didn't clean him. He must have had a quiet word with them. Dirty boy.

(07:01:39) Good morning. Aiming for some more sleep in a bit.. Now: post overnight-work breakfast. Same again tonight... #messedupbodyclock

(19:54:37) A shameful indulgence... Gogglebox. Hilarious.

(22:55:15) Here we go then.. phase two of Overnight Work action. I have my lemsip. I have interrupted my windows updates. Bring it on. (In theory)...

(07:20:04) Good morning. This morning's witty epithet attempted delivery when I wasn't in yesterday.. it's probably somewhere in Hemel Hempstead now.

(07:35:14) Better crackle on.

(09:12:43) I quite like getting asked for directions now I've got Google Maps. Happened again this morning. I must have an 'ask me for directions' face

(16:30:09) Early warning: Tonight's Late Night Loaf is, unfortunately, not going to happen - a nasty headcold has decided to stop me from being. BOO!

(07:29:26) Good morning. There is a cat standoff going on in the back garden. I wish I had the supersoakers to hand...

(20:18:33) Absolutely no fitness statistics.

(20:18:47) Apart from being a bit sweaty.

(22:11:02) OK.. pencils down and pass your multiple choice sheets to the front. We'll feed them into the computer and make Tuesday out of them. Night!

(08:29:01) Good morning. Blue sky thinking. All that.

(10:09:52) Curved phones are the future. But which way should they curve? Hmm.

(11:52:37) Things I have learned from @Podquiz: Allspice is only one spice. I am trying to think of an 'Old Spice' joke now. Please do one yourself.

(16:56:37) The 22nd October is going to be a very good day indeed: http://t.co/OGpWPmBGBp (@poots) #elementary

(22:08:44) Another busy day. Another trip to the tidy tip. I will soon have my own designated parking space. Which doesn't sound good. Night night!

(08:00:35) Good morning :) Time for a dynamic Saturday. Get stuff done yeah.

(08:16:06) What is the right course of action when one has up for auction on eBay, but gets an email saying "what will you sell it for now?" *sighs*

(08:16:41) (contd) Surely if I wanted to sell it now I'd put a "Buy it now" price on. But I have no idea what it might sell for. Ahh well.

(16:16:20) 3 cubic metres of loft space cleared. Much of which went to the tidy tip (some was recycled). I can see doorboards! http://t.co/SEu7h9v4E3

(16:21:49) This week's @FagsMagsandBags may well be my all time favourite. Top insults from Sanjay (@OmarRaza) PLUS Bonnie Tyler http://t.co/J3P6luXuof

(16:35:17) I found this in a newspaper (from 5 years ago) that I found while tidying. Just exquisite. Happy Birthday, Stumpy. http://t.co/lNlTd46bq0

(18:06:47) Ahh home.

(20:17:43) Opting for some Phoneshop as I do my eBaying. Hate doing eBaying. It's not even a gerund.

(15:38:31) Leg or bell? Leg or bell.

(18:31:19) I'm hearing phantom squeaks from Frisbee, our guinea pig who sadly died today. It's about this time she normally demands hay from Tallhuman.
