(15:58:22) Doing some simple circuit design (and finding nothing of use in my 'junk box') - takes me back to my teenage days of simple electronics...

(10:59:39) I'm finding it harder than ever to believe anything I read on the internet... and I thought I was cynical before!

(11:52:26) Playing a game of "how long will this query run before the DBAs come and ask me what the heck I'm playing at"

(12:38:52) New tyres time. Getting @DunlopLive Blue something-or-other ones because @DunlopBTCC (and good fuel rating)

(17:32:57) I like Mel out of Bittermelonsoup but seeing her on telly is like watching my sister's awkward friend.

(19:42:54) Watching A Shambles For #Eurovision... Mel Giedroyc is rocking the "half bling, half binbag" look. #Blingbag #EurovisionYouDecide

(19:50:22) Song number one: Dismality 7/10 #EurovisionYouDecide

(19:56:04) Song 2: Where's the hook? Dismality - 8/10 #EurovisionYouDecide Seriously next year I'll change my name to Little Mix Sheeran and write one.

(20:02:29) Song 3: Someone snuck into Moldova and nicked their song. C'mon.. who was it..? Dismality 5/10 #EurovisionYouDecide Winner so far.

(20:08:44) Song 4: I'd never dare tune my snare down that far. This is a bit ploddy. Bring back the dubstep :D Dismality: 6/10 #EurovisionYouDecide

(20:15:16) Song 5: I really hope something happens in this song. I think if you play it backwards it's "Let it Go" Dismality: 6/10 #EurovisionYouDecide

(20:24:26) Song 6: I think about 30% of this song could be excellent - the rest makes it go on too long. Dismality: 7/10 #EurovisionYouDecide

(20:42:53) This is fully the best bit of the whole show so far #EurovisionYouDecide #WhyAustralia

(20:55:30) YAY! The one I thought that was least dismal won! I am SO good at this #EurovisionYouDecide

(12:58:00) Today's view is of a training room. I think I'm in the North. It's hard to tell from here....

(10:45:48) In this age of technology, why can I not press a button to remove people shouting from pop songs? I mean "Wit a bang bang" adds nothing.

(10:45:58) Of course, I blame Pato Banton.

(13:43:31) Berating software for continually apologising about having encountered an error, rather than closing & letting me have another go. #worklife

(08:28:07) Working from home this morning without broadband... it is possible, but I'm going to need more stamps...

(14:19:44) I have just had an inhumanly objectionable amount of garlic for lunch. Tarring, feathering and ejection from the office may well ensue.

(11:42:17) Happy birthday to @FridgeMagnet2 - a friend who's stuck me through thick and thin. And I'm no longer thin...

(15:51:54) Once again, I have the urge to buy some isopropyl alcohol. I might just put it on my Amazon wishlist as a hint.

(16:47:48) Every large corporation should provide laptops for employees to kick down the stairs.

(19:27:03) Just to let you know: I, too, have turned down performing at Trump's inauguration; a shame, since I've been working on an epic airhorn solo.

(20:25:18) Playing "You Don't Know Jack" with the offspring. That is family Tuesday evenings, that is.

(00:01:35) Drifting off to sleep with the @samsimmonss' "Little bit sad" song running round my head. His #radio4 programme about birds: worth a listen.

(12:49:03) I'm having one of those days where I'm gravitating to the conclusion that I am being dimwitted in many, many ways. Not encouraging. BAH.

(09:32:17) Is it wrong to want the David Cameron "Doopee doo" as my text message alert? Especially with the "Right..." at the end

(11:28:41) Demingification of the kitchen bin with Cillit Bang and a kettle #SaturdayMorning #achievement #DomesticSkillzors

(11:36:25) Of the myriad ways to make proper coffee in our house, the #AeroPress is definitely the smoothest and quickest. #BlessTheCoffeeGrowers

(15:56:28) I've just discovered @kcconfectionery Dinner Mints. The wrappers say "I LOVE YOU" AND the sweets clear out my sinuses. What's not to like?
