No, you're not the only one. The Prime Minister of Malaysia tw@ts, tells everyone where he is at any given moment. Why would I want to know (unless I'm a hired Ninja or his bathroom cleaner)?

Re: Neighbour told my kids he will ring the police

It would be nice to have a "twitter is for tw@ts" thread. Maybe mods should break this thread off and create one.

Yeah, but if they wanna use the name of a real country, at least demonstrate some knowledge or thoughtful research.


Actually, an orange mocha frapp sounds very nice right about now!

No!!!!!! It exists! It's just like my favourite orange-flavoured chocolate but in a cold, frothy liquid medium.

Re: Neighbour told my kids he will ring the police

If I may suggest, Mses J.L-P and Argus would see the throughput and maybe also the quality of their casual exchange increase if it were undertaken by phone or instant messaging. The thrill of carrying this private conversation in public for all to listen would be preserved, since I understand Ms J.L-P works in an open office and Ms Argus is under constant canine supervision.

P.S. Would you like me to mail you an orange macchiato iced coffee?

I did not say your conversation was soporific. Coffee is not needed.
