  1. I'm waiting for it to become a popular meaningless term of abuse: "Ooh! You know what you are, don't you? You, you… You're UNELECTABLE, that's what you are!" # #

  3. Ow. Never drink at lunchtime if you've promised to cook dinner. Granddad's nap time now.

  4. Went out to get a haircut. Col was out to lunch. Perfect excuse to kill time in the pub. Several glasses of wine and some garlic bread later, I realised I couldn't ask anybody to work in the noxious fumes I was exhaling. Maybe tomorrow.

  5. And, wouldn't you know it: while setting up new server, #'s admin interface goes down for scheduled maintenance. The universe is telling me to start drinking at midday.

  6. Feck it. VPS provider has shut down my antiquated and probably insecure mail server. Worst possible time, with # assignments due. If I'm providing your email, expect lengthy service interruption.

  7. I pretend to like # for the quality of his thinking, but really it's the cultural references: "I have never, to my knowledge, declared that someone’s mother was a hamster and his father smelt of elderberries." http://ur1.ca/nn65c # #

  8. I can see why political leaders get a softer ride in their twilight years, but I find it hard to associate Carter with the phrase "steely-eyed determination". http://ur1.ca/nn5c3 Well, if you're a rabbit, maybe. http://ur1.ca/nn5c5

  9. Was so impressed by the vim of # on my # with # blocked, I'm doing the same on my desktop computer. Highly recommend it. Tho' it's alarming how many sites require # to load the primary content of a page. http://ur1.ca/407bf

  11. @tregeagle The other half of the glass was thrown overboard by devilish foreign Johnnies. Never underrate the wily Pathan. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0061789/quotes

  12. The limit for # "showrunners" is five years. Barry Letts and Terrance Dicks did five solid years. JN-T and Saward did four and a bit mostly-dysfunctional, occasionally-brilliant years. http://www.bleedingcool.com/2015/08/12/are-big-changes-coming-to-doctor-who/

  14. @vanden I was marginally involved in opposition to the # (which went swimmingly, BTW). At the what-are-we-going-to-do-now after-party, prominent # Trotskyite Ian Rintoul said the next big issue was going to be refugees. I thought "surely not, in a civilised country…?"

  15. @vanden Like the white # policy, mandatory detention is a Labor Party innovation, since refined by both major parties.

  18. @vanden Not if you phrase it carefully. We even got a brand new neo-fascist movement this year. Which is nice. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reclaim_Australia

  19. @vanden Given Harper is likely to feel an equivalent threat from the other direction, at least it would be a consensual iron curtain. In # we've nothing but open ocean on the other side of our borders, and still we're quaking in terror.
