(16:41:13) Here's a promo for tonight's @Weekendery (9pm UK time, and 5pm US Eastern - an hour earlier for this week only!)

(20:40:27) A decidedly NON-SPOOKY @weekendery is on the way at the top of the hour - usual place - http://t.co/AHs6DdUHaY .. you could win a TRINKET!

(21:42:01) Where's Johnny... been? Win a trinket if you can guess!

(15:14:00) "I could show you, but I'd have to charge."

(21:31:52) Happy birthday, @laura_hobson! :)

(21:32:00) Happy birthday to you, @Superblouse!

(20:56:22) Is it just me or do all those McVities cakes that look like Jamaica Ginger Cake also taste like Jamaica Ginger Cake? Including carrot cake.

(21:36:43) My eyes are buzzing after an OU psychometric science test thing that @poots asked me to do. It was cool. I see numbers.

(13:51:17) I've learned about Formula E today - what a remarkable race... battery use and 'fanboost' - a bonus as voted by fans! http://t.co/3KSu8GllVt

(19:42:48) Yup. OK Go have impressed me again with one of their "I have no idea how they did it" videos - https://t.co/CcO9jT4wFS

(20:28:25) Evening constitutional: perfect autumnalness for it. Bit of a lull now, though #caffeinecrash

(09:32:32) In the excitement of dropping Little Red Car Of Adventure off at @StevenEagell I left my house keys in there. Thanks to Val I got 'em back.

(19:50:46) At the top of the hour, the @weekendery comes sloshing in after a stomp in puddles. A change of socks available at htttp://www.mintfm.net!

(20:44:11) "Where's Johnny.... Been?"

(09:27:46) I've just been followed by @Maplin_FK. This is the best new follower I've had ALL WEEK.

(14:13:49) It continues to amuse me that I am capable of typing so badly on my phone that autocorrect has absolutely no suggestions. Sums me up...

(19:32:34) Watching a bit of #ArgosLive - couldn't quite place @KatyB but then remembered her first album has the same nickname as my car. #littleRed

(12:49:26) It only takes the same energy to eat two doughnuts than it does to boil the kettle. Two doughnuts and some orange squash, then.

(08:08:58) RT @ThePoke: #recap Dad Vs. Social Media.

(15:35:18) Briliant.. @nxmee is in control of his very own @Raspberry_Pi - and is not afraid to use it; he's already running MATE in an XMing session.

(07:16:27) Nobody needs know that I was up well after midnight aralditing my headphones back together. It's OK.. it wasn't my @RHA ones.. :D

(16:35:00) I had no idea... http://t.co/3u80kTANSR (and many others that can be found here: http://t.co/RhAzuCOFNq) - A better version. Less Robbie-y.

(16:38:26) RT @BreezeHaveMercy: i can’t decide if this bus is being supportive or threatening me http://t.co/Vb5bdshxRM

(10:20:06) RT @podquiz: PodQuiz 500 is just a few hours away!

(12:31:40) Getting the tyre changed on the Prius, it strikes me that people who work in car service places must have to drive all kinds of weird cars..

(12:34:58) Also, I wonder how many times (and how often) I'd have to sit around in a car service waiting room before I felt "yeah.. I'm comfortable."

(13:08:52) Given the number of times I've (ahem) slightly bumped the kerb, allowing them to upsell wheel alignment was a good idea but I wont be back.

(13:16:29) Daytime ITV is starting to really grate on me now. And what the hell's Iceland Bingo? Is that the chances someone has left the freezer open?

(13:17:33) I spelled "won't" wrong in that earlier tweet. Sorry. Wont do it again.

(17:10:30) I've got "I thought it was over" by the Feeling and "Dakota" by Stereophonics playing in my head. Swapping between the two. Randomly.

(17:12:13) "Live streaming video requires Safari 5.1.10 or later on OS X v10.6.8 or later; Safari on iOS 6.0 or later. " Fanboys only. #Apple

(19:47:42) At the top of the hour, it's a @Weekendery, which is in feisty mood tonight. And smells a bit of lemon drizzle cake. http://t.co/AHs6DdUHaY!

(20:18:28) RT @sm2n: Talking about @weekendery at http://t.co/G9lxF0AEYD but not with RT @1969Steve: @syzygy I am tuned in #MintFM

(20:44:31) Where's Johnny... Been? Clues: He's banging a bowl, live with the early bugs

(07:32:45) RT @Dr_Black: Happy Ada Lovelace Day!! 😃 http://t.co/rAORFVDgLo #ALD14 Big up all women in science!! Yay 😃❤️😃

(11:00:19) I feel a bit bad having "Best wishes, james" as part of my signature. Not actually typing it each time seems a little.. insincere. Just me?

(12:17:46) I appear to be unable to even. How odd.

(21:19:39) The 99 balloons were only red in the UK version...

(09:16:16) Good morning. The word of the day is "Drab".

(09:21:51) RT @MagicOxygen: @syzygy

(12:05:01) Why DO the UKIP keep being on telly?

(14:15:57) RT @vobes: My latest Author's Chat video is now available. I am talking about why I use social media.

(15:34:24) Last week I saw a Flappy Bird 2015 annual in WH Smiths. A whole book. About Flappy Bird. #baffling

(15:56:06) I suppose it's better than there being a UKIP annual.

(16:15:12) Happy birthday, @JQP74! Hope it has been a splendid one!

(16:16:27) Given the excitement of the racing today, I stand by my claim that #BTCC is the best motorsport there is...

(21:25:03) Oh my.. Never Mind The Buzzcocks is still hilarious - it helps that Stacey Solomon was on it this week. And Rhod Gilbert is brilliant. #NMTB

Tweets for 11 Oct 2014


(11:20:44) It's official - Cortana hates me. It has just texted the word "stupid" to @poots. I was attempting to tell Cortana to stop being so stupid.

(10:19:59) Still got a massive caffeine buzz from coffee I drank at 8am. That's.. odd.

(12:04:12) What LED colours are left for me to invent?

(12:13:14) The consensus is puce (thanks, @76Wilbury and @CalmWaters73!) I'm going to try for beige, too. That Nobel peace prize is within my grasp!

(15:13:45) I'm still none the wiser why anyone would put a 'b' on the end of the word 'super'...

(18:01:58) I must have a good look around http://t.co/JowCJgTfDu - they were at the @LutonFunPalace this weekend and the experiments look great fun!

(07:07:44) Morning. It's that time of year when turning the hot tap on feels as cold as the cold tap... at least for a while. #bitnippy

(11:05:27) I'm always a little disappointed that NONE of these... http://t.co/F5ctOsDrQO ... are ever punished with a 'Mild Electrical' @thisisjinsy

(08:53:49) Morning. It's housework time. And it's all gone dark.

(09:13:04) The soundtrack to my morning is the wonderful, entertaining and informative #Octaver community on @audioBoom - https://t.co/6xPxxQgFWY

(10:17:48) Listening to last week's @TinTopTuesday - all credit to @AlanHydeStudio who makes it a wonderfully upbeat, warm & entertaining listen. #BTCC

(12:00:42) I cant hear any aeroplanes. Weird.

(12:19:45) MI5 - Destroy documents securely by giving them to your children to leave in their school uniform before it goes in the wash. @twoptwips

(12:23:13) I'm not in favour of UKIP - in fact, some European policy impresses me - the improved laws on parody, for example: http://t.co/udi9Zftwul

(12:39:45) In a fit of hubris, I removed the tax disc from my car windscreen. I'm now concerned I read it wrong.. or the DVLA will change their minds..
