A Conspiracy Week of Tweets 2010-10-31

  • I have taken the last few days off; any important tweets I should know about? #
  • Who else is going out to Avondale for the Movie Marathon next weekend? #
  • Watching "Murderland." Robbie Coltrane is magnificent but, really TVNZ, you should be playing the episodes weekly, not all together. #
  • random conspiracy generator http://tumblr.com/xqun1nyum #
  • Essays essays essays essay. I'm assaying essays. #
  • Right, essays done (for the moment). Now for some thesis and then a walk to get the kink out of my back. #
  • Sometimes the comments that vex me most, thesis-wise, aren't the "You're mistaken." No, it's the "That's interesting; what if that means…" #
  • Troubleshooting the desktop; this always happens on a day when I need to be doing serious thesis work. #
  • Why do you keep crashing, OS X? It better not be a dud GPU… #
  • Once again I can't go to "Media 7." This week's excuse: house-shopping with my Mother. #
  • I've gone on a lot about my Communist Hat, but now I have the trousers of a Thai fisherman. Best pants ever. #
  • Baking chocolate chip biscuits to share with my fellow marathoners. Maybe I should do two batches… #
  • Some of my best friends aren't Marxists. (via @gtiso) #
  • Hmm… Tweetie for Mac seems to no longer be a very trustable tweet-checking machine. #
  • I seem to have tracked my iMac problem to the machine overheating so I am now playing around with smcFanControl to fix it. #
  • I've cooked, baked and house-worked and I've discovered that my left knee has decided to form a bruise from my knee-shelf trap two days ago. #
  • I am not able to be clever and write novel thesis material today, but I can cut and edit existing material in revenge for my apathy. Huzzah. #
