  • It has to be said that Camberwell ladies of a certain age have a certain look. #
  • @smurray38 @rod_benson @_Laverne Vodafone fax ad. Video gone missing. Then pasta ad. But look what I found: http://youtu.be/_VrBxbQHPqs #
  • .@smurray38 And we forgot to say Happy 67th Birthday to Paul Keating yesterday. #
  • @smurray38 I'll make sure I don't forget Bill Hayden's 78th on Sunday… #
  • A free plug: I picked up some good cheap remaindered books at The Book Grocer 50% off sale today. http://auspol.info/eVLQZ2 @bookgrocer #
  • But I might have been ripped off paying $1.50 for this weighty tome: http://twitpic.com/3refpq – the things I do for a complete collection. #
  • This was better value for $5.00: http://twitpic.com/3rehfq – just when you thought there was nothing new to say about the Founding Fathers. #
  • @GrogsGamut They have a shop in Kingston… #
  • @GrogsGamut $6 for the McCormack/Saunders book on Sir Ninian Stephen… lots of junk but better than the average remainders store. #
  • @xposya He's getting confused… I was referring to books… #
  • @bookgrocer You got the sale that Dirt Cheap Books missed – I wouldn't pay them $4.00 for it… #
  • @bookgrocer We check in there regularly – some good bargains. This is first time I've been to one of the other stores. #
  • @bookgrocer You fill an important hole in the market. I buy new regularly from Readings but always have a list I won't pay full price for. #
  • @Drag0nista @ern_malleyscrub I hadn't realised you were such an appalling judge of character… #
  • @bookgrocer One wall of it looks like this: http://twitpic.com/3reos6 #
  • I am able to report that Barry Humphries' son is the only one on this list I've ever heard of: http://auspol.info/ejcZfA (via @Colvinius) #
  • "It's positively Brideshead Revisited. With knobs on." – nice line. #
  • Lady Natasha Rufus Isaacs and The Hon. Drummond Money-Coutts are my favourites… #
  • Although Gabriella and Isabella Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe are in the hunt too… #
  • @Kimbo_Ramplin Does he still do those letters from America? #
  • @Kimbo_Ramplin The professional conjurer is the only one doing anything that's actually interesting and worthwhile… #
  • January 20 and Barack Obama is exactly halfway through his first term, or his presidency. #
  • Um, it can't be both… RT @makiwa: Let's believe and hope it is both. Obama has proved a very cruel joke for both black and white hopes! #
  • @upulie Republican logic! #
  • If he loses the election then he's half-way through now. If he's re-elected, he's only a quarter through now… RT @djmattyg007: why not? #
  • @Kimbo_Ramplin It's what Obama would call a teachable moment… #
  • @makiwa I think you might have misunderstood my original tweet about the amount of time he has left in office… #
  • RT @djmattyg007: that's not what you said though. you said "first term" or "presidency". first term can imply a second; can also be the last #
  • @djmattyg007 If he's defeated he's now halfway through his presidency. If he's re-elected he's now half-way through his first term. #

  • English is dead. #
  • @2FBS The evidence is overwhelming. #
  • @lyndalcurtis That's not how you spell ford… #
  • RT @djmattyg007: he's half-way through his first term regardless of whether or not he's re-elected. #
  • .@djmattyg007 If he's not re-elected, he will become a one-term president. No-one will say he was a first-term president. #
  • I have misunderestimated the situation… RT @anthonybaxter: and starting to smell #refudiate #
  • .@latebadger As Sir Humphrey would have said, "I don't know how to put it any more clearly." #
  • RT @djmattyg007: true, but my point about your original tweet remains. #
  • .@djmattyg007 As a matter of logic, if it's true then your point about my original tweet is invalid. #
  • RT @djmattyg007: you said it's either the end of his first term, or his presidency. @makiwa said it could be both. #
  • .@djmattyg007 No, I said it's halfway through his first term, or his presidency. #
  • RT @djmattyg007: @mfarnsworth exactly. #
  • .@djmattyg007 I notice you're licenced to kill? http://auspol.info/es3QYk #
  • @anthonybaxter @Kimbo_Ramplin When they killed clear thinking in the schools they killed civilisation. #
  • I was worried about that… RT @djmattyg007: i don't understand the point? #
  • .@djmattyg007 It's just that I need someone to come round and kill me now. #
  • @anthonybaxter I did read a press release from the Greens earlier on. Does that count? #
  • About the English comprehension matter or the death thing? … RT @djmattyg007: i'm not sure if you're screwing with me or being serious. #
  • RT @djmattyg007: the death thing #
  • @Kimbo_Ramplin @aptronym @smurray38 You have no idea what teachers go through every day of their lives, do you? #

  • @smurray38 With an attitude like that, equating teaching with a one-way transmission of The Canon, they wouldn't employ you anyway… #
  • Presidents Obama and Hu are holding a joint press conference at the White House… #
  • Obama: The US welcomes China's rise… #
  • RT @markknoller: Pres. Obama says Hu's visit is "a chance to demonstrate a simple truth: we have an enormous stake in each other’s success." #
  • Obama talks of the universal rights of every human being… #
  • @tospeakofpebble Drudge Report tweet: HU TO TAKE 4 QUESTIONS http://drudge.tw/fj0zNQ #
  • Hu: Great pleasure to come to Washington… sincere greetings to people of the United States from 1.3 billion Chinese… #
  • Hu: I have come to increase mutual respect, deepen trust, etc. #
  • Hu: Over past 32 years of diplomatic ties, the relationship has grown to one of strategic significance… with fruitful results… #
  • Hu notes that Obama is either half-way through his first term or his presidency. #
  • Hu: … advancing positive and co-operative relationships between our two peoples… #
