My Latest Twitter Updates

  • Just read the first 50 pages of "Dismissal", latest novel from Nicholas Hasluck: http://twitpic.com/5kjtz9 – yes, it's about THAT Dismissal #
  • Hasluck is a Justice of the WA Supreme Court and the son of former Liberal politician and Governor-General, Sir Paul Hasluck. #
  • @acaderama Yes, but it draws heavily on events and names of the time. First section is about McCarthyist 1950s. That's all I know so far! #
  • @littleaud1 It's fiction. And he's not the first. But I'll reserve judgment until I've read it. Ian Callinan wrote racy novels. #
  • Mark Twain, the exclamation mark, email, and the "slippery slope to smiley faces". http://auspol.info/kGDoKm #
  • "The exclamation point is the adverb of punctuation; if you have to put it in, then maybe the sentence didn't do its job." #
  • @PTeren Indeed. There's no fiction that can compete with the real story with him. #
  • @littleaud1 The Americans are considering this matter as well: http://auspol.info/l9XbBG #
  • When a Predator Collides With a Fabricator: http://auspol.info/iBcPmW – Maureen Dowd on Strauss-Kahn and his accuser. #
  • @kristinmoore2 I'm still tempted too. But at least I never indulge in smiley faces. #
  • @rphillipps Ssshhh… you're on Twitter. It's the only punctuation mark some people know. #WhoSaysI #039;mPompous? #
  • @kristinmoore2 The ability to discern tone is a lost skill, I fear. #
  • @kristinmoore2 Such coarseness. How unladylike. #
  • @kristinmoore2 Years ago The Onion wrote a piece about President Clinton accidentally deleting the Federal Budget on his computer… #
  • @kristinmoore2 I gave it to some Year 11 students to read and half of them thought it was serious because it sounded liked a news story. #
  • @mprimme I can forgive many things but not emoticons. #
  • @hughriminton Hehe… that's why I use lots of these… much harder to criticise, even looks profound… #
  • @mprimme One person's bluntness and abruptness is another person's precision and refusal to pander to the morons… #
  • @SimonThomsen @hughriminton Was sent this email recently. Hyperbole also clue to psychopathic state: http://auspol.info/lAD9n8 #
  • @SimonThomsen @hughriminton True. But he deserves points for the "arse-raping real estate Ponzi schemes pumped up by plague immigration". #
  • PDF of the front page of the Washington Post: http://auspol.info/ln9c46 – the final countdown for Atlantis. Still an impressive picture. #
  • @sortius Yes, it looks that way. #
  • Once Rick Perry decides, I think Sarah Palin will be the only one we're waiting on: http://auspol.info/kIynZE #
  • @GrogsGamut I failed Psychiatry 101 so I'm just not sure! #
  • @GrogsGamut And there's more money in the entertainment business for both of them. #
  • "An appallingly bogan prime minister" … #
  • @mikestuchbery I'm merely quoting Compass… #
  • @profsarahj A bloke on Compass program about gay marriage. #
