15:32 It's a Mount Gambier Wipeout there on my TV. RT @abclandline: Climate scepticism could wipe out rural towns @abcnews #
14:19 A cliche encyclopedia with added carbon tax. RT @TonyAbbottMHR: This week’s blog: News Limited Blog #MyLiberal #
14:01 The #carbonprice has made my trip to the supermarket faster, because I don't stop at Brumby's any more. #

21:56 @doggedtim tribute to bad fashion I think #
21:39 Why, suddenly, in 2012, has someone decided that there is a clash between the Essendon and St Kilda jerseys? #aflsaintsdons #
21:34 Oh dear. RT @FitnessTalk_au: Thoughts and opinions on Essendon's clash strip? #

12:33 We all make mistakes with the odd zero here and there #
10:49 The sort of quality local reportage from the Newcastle Herald that could never be done from New Zealand: #
10:39 I see a rainbow. It's a circular refraction of light containing the colours of the, ah, rainbow. Thought I'd share that with you. #
10:10 @phmuseum there are days when I think that's still faster than wireless broadband #
09:56 But to repeat my editorial position on twitpicing: #
09:33 If Instagram wasn't so web-unfriendly I'd re-tweet the rainbow pic I took two months ago #
09:32 @savingourtrees and not only you :) #
09:19 Apparently no one in Sydney has ever seen a rainbow before. #
08:37 I used to have one of these. MT @phmuseum: Ah the C64 cassette data reader. #

14:31 No wonder those chaps were so pleased. It is Corinthians' first win of the Copa Libertadores. They beat Boca Juniors - #
14:17 I could hear the Corinthians fans a couple of blocks away. I wonder what pub they've landed in? #
14:15 Apparently Corinthians have just won the Copa Libertadores, which explains the procession I just saw headed towards The Rocks. #
14:12 No idea what this procession down George St is about. Has Brazil won the World Cup? #
12:07 Ha. RT @lyndalcurtis: Tony Abbott when asked about Clive Palmer: "that's yesterday's issue and I dealt with all of that yesterday. " #

19:50 What is this Rugby Onion of which you speak? #
19:00 "We're not looking at a Rolls-Royce type of Games if a Toyota-type will do." CGF President on #goldcoast2018 #
16:47 Full time. Tigers by 12. #aflgiantstigers #

15:52 Scores. Were. Level. #
15:47 Scores. Are. Level. #aflgiantstigers #
15:36 I am sure that in the game right in front of me I have seen the ball kicked once. GWS you have it all ahead of you. #
15:33 Some of these kiddies on the field at half time seem to think they're playing touch footy as in that other code #
15:22 Richmond really should be a lot further in front than this. 6.7 to 5.1 at half time. #aflgiantstigers #
14:21 Deleted that last tweet and I'll shut up now. Too cold to tweet anyway #
14:11 Game has begun. If Skoda Stadium holds 25k they'd be struggling to have 10,000 today. #aflgiantstigers #
14:09 Oh. Just realised the rugby league player is not out there today. #aflgiantstigers #
14:04 Da Giants. #aflgiantstigers #
14:03 I seem to be surrounded by fanatical Richmond supporters. Is there such a thing as a fanatical GWS fan yet? #
13:58 Waiting for the players. #aflgiantstigers #
13:48 Some partially-clad indigenous gentlemen are delivering the Welcome to Country as the rain eases to a drizzle. #

12:29 And I think it's my first time inside Sydney Showground/Skoda Stadium since seeing Japan beat Australia in baseball at the 2000 Olympics #
12:26 Call it treachery if you will but today I'm at my first AFL game in *cough cough* years. Under cover thank you. #

08:21 The new royalty are wealthy overseas gamblers. NSW Govt extends their smoking exemption at a Pyrmont gambling den - #

07:54 @thetodayshow D'arcy and Monk brandishing guns is not as offensive as Aussie athletes forced to "wear" the Aus flag as a cape for TV promos #
