(08:38:19) Morning, and indeed uhoh... they've updated the @QuizUp beta for Android and mine doesn't work any more.. Should've joined the G+ community!

(08:44:24) 'mark all as read' for me doesn't mean 'I can't be bothered to read this lot'... it's more 'I read them but you clearly don't realise that.'

(09:25:28) RT @johndredge: When a puma is slightly annoyed with half a cube tree, don’t put a sprig of parsley into a barrel. #oldproverb

(15:59:02) RT @CarolineKent: Hmm this is pretty awkward when you put it like that http://t.co/cHoXcWWadp

(18:26:26) Ooh I've just had an update on my @WindowsPhoneUK @nokia_uk 1520 thing. I wonder what it's for...

(21:08:07) The @Weekendery will be on air very very soon.. please hold tight! :)

(21:16:56) RT @fridgemagnet2: stuff. @weekendery and ting.

(08:43:34) Morning. Another week kicks off (hopefully not in a '2am outside the pub' way) and I wish you a moderately interesting one. With sweets.

(10:32:48) Broke me sunglasses. Is it sticky tape or pound shop..?

(09:29:28) Morning. Hazy Shade of Winter stuck in my head. More specifically a thoroughly unjustifiable junglist remix. Could be worse, I s'pose...

(11:55:25) Another one of these days where I feel like I've booted up in safe mode. I've tried turning it off and on again...

(11:18:03) Good morning. It seems to be one of those springlike days that really annoy zombies and we all either say "Happy days" or "Good times." FACT

(13:43:45) RT @cluedont: When driving somewhere for the first time it's actually illegal to not reduce the stereo volume in your car gradually as you …

(22:19:46) How often do you get to hear a 78rpm record on the radio? You can on the @Weeekendery on http://t.co/AHs6DdUHaY - well you could.

(22:41:55) Playing the number 5 hit single in Latvia - because I can. This is music radio at its most eclectic. This is The @Weekendery

(23:05:09) Another fun and frolicsome @Weekendery show done and dusted.. the archive version will be uploaded tomorrow.. thank you if you tuned in! :)

(10:57:46) I need to stop calling Eleanor "Lenster" when out in public... apparently people look at each other as if to say "They called her WHAT?"

(09:11:57) Good morning. Today's PIN is 3765.

(14:10:27) Heading into London. Being careful of sinkholes... are there more of them than ever..?

(14:14:31) All gone a bit blustery...

(22:26:41) Back from a jolly afternoon/evening out with Nick, Nik, Liam & Showbiz Dave. Old school larks and the dingiest restaurant in Russell Square.

Tweets for 14 Feb 2014


(07:55:48) Happy St Valentine's Day! Twinned with St Cyril who invented the Cyrillic alphabet. Imagine creating a new alphabet. "What the hell's that?"

(08:39:11) Up periscope.

(13:21:58) I just did the head wobble that Jimmy Carr does and got really dizzy. Won't be doing that again.

(10:34:09) I'm the office zombie.

(10:54:57) I have still got Flappy Bird on my phone. I still haven't bothered playing it.

(11:46:40) Looking up the word 'obviates' to ensure I am using it in the right context.

(18:53:20) Reply to @fifirong Oh no! I hope you recover soon.. get as much rest as you can!

(21:28:57) Rubbish Triathlon complete. 370 calories burned. That's a frighteningly small fraction of a decent fried breakfast. Time for a sit down.

Tweets for 09 Feb 2014


(08:45:37) But would an idiot be be able to do this..?

(09:01:10) Good morning. Tummy ache, but otherwise all is reasonably orthogonal. Let Sunday commence. Slowly.

(18:45:33) TONIGHT! Mint FM! A new slot.. slipping slinkily into Thursday evenings, it's the @Weekendery - same show, different time. 9pm UK, 5pm EST!

(21:06:08) Slight technical issues getting the Weekendery to you.. on-air very soon!

(21:23:52) The @Weekendery is on-air .. to a fashion. I have no idea why one of the channels sounds like it's in a sink... http://t.co/d9KyhPKtLN

(10:14:56) I am utterly delighted with the service from @WeAreFocusrite - can't wait to get my Voicemaster Pro back.. hopefully in time for my show!

(10:39:40) Outlook just autocorrected 'kaboodle' to 'caboodle'. I wasn't expecting that.

(10:40:24) To be honest, I'm in too good a mood to work. I just want to go home, lie in bed, stare at the ceiling and be happy. Until about lunchtime.

(08:05:44) good morning. all in little letters...

(08:34:58) Good morning. Some up'n'at-em action required this morning - I'm on guitar duties at church, and Lenni's bringing her viola. Noisy times :D

(11:47:54) Back from church. A joyful noise was made - all acoustic, but I think it cut through. And now.. some peace and quiet before bike building...

(13:52:05) Friday's @Weekendery is available for another incredulous listen here: http://t.co/nyl4QW1RrS - is it real? YES. It might be. Perhaps...

(20:50:39) In hysterics at Henning Wehn on Room 101. Good banter with Michael Ball. Never thought I would ever tweet that.

(22:00:23) Does anyone know @leopardprintgin in real life? His/her twitter account appears to have been hacked. Quite odd tweets... in Russian.

(20:49:27) At the top of the hour, The @Weekendery takes to Mint FM for two hours of music and all sorts (not liquorice) YEAH! http://t.co/AHs6DdUHaY

(21:33:46) Playing an amazing record by Nick Mulvey on @TheWeekendery - the music on this show is picked like that coffee you get out of civets.

(22:38:13) Playing They Might Be Giants, @JohnDredge and Men Without Hats. An indulgent but delightful 10 minutes. #mintfm

(23:04:19) Another enjoyable @Weekendery done and dusted - thank you to everyone who listened, contributed and existed! :) Now let the weekend begin!
