@hurricane_ros Yeah pretty sure a lot of people called his imminent death as well.Within six months everyone will have stopped making outlandish predictions on twitter.With each passing day "the Queen is about to die" becomes a better bet, if you really want to get into the game of calling these things.She's lasted pretty well considering.An awful lot of people tweeted something like this in July. @kevinmeek8 OKTree: YOU'VE CLIMBED ON ME FOR THE LAST TIME Squirrel: NOOOOOOOOOOᵗᵉˡˡᵐʸʷᶦᶠᵉᵃⁿᵈᵏᶦᵈˢᶦˡᵒᵛᵉᵗʰᵉᵐOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Retweeted by ~I've had a nice week and been able to do quite a lot of fun stuff. The soft autumn sunshine is making me feel very content. @Glitter_brawl That's beyond adorable. @Glitter_brawl OH. I had forgotten about this. INCREDIBLE. What a look. @Glitter_brawl Yes fair point. I just think she'd make an adorable urchin. @Glitter_brawl I thought the whole point of small children is that they can fit up chimneys. Surely Tallie could take a brush up there. @sarahb_polar wow, they're lovely!Was, sorry.Also it with three years ago so presumably we'll have to read the same jokes again in 2023. mean, I could have told you this without an inquiry.

@SamWhyte OK cool. If the universe ends I will give you £1.0. @SamWhyte Wait so if the universe still exists next spring I get all your stuff, is that right. @SamWhyte Bet you a pound it doesI am quite looking forward to wearing coats with pockets and not sweating all the damn time.Weird to think that winter starts next week and lasts for 7 months.🧶🧶🧶
Retweeted by ~Had a think about it and deleted my last tweet because I think it could quite reasonably upset people. Sorry if it did. @girlonthenet Evil genius is one of the top kinds of genius you know. @hurricane_ros Yeah definitely, I'm usually pretty shocked when I just don't see them for a couple of months in the summer.Not sure how many sessions we'll actually manage this term but it did at least remind me of an important truth: that theatre is deep magic.This kid was the first one through the door and she immediately greeted me with an accusation of betrayal, as she h… weren't many of them but they seemed pretty chill about it all on the face of it.

That seems quite likely. You make a valid point, me.You can tell that's not remotely true from literally the first sentence of the news story in the tweet.It would be very weird if that happened, but it didn't. is there an economist on the radio disputing public health policy?

Retweeted by ~ @Despairbunny It's not gaslighting or abusive if it's the state, that's propaganda and oppression. But also that's not what was said at all. @adrianartn Is it still available anywhere do you know? @tom_usher_ Yeah that's a a lot closer than whatever that tweet was.Don't talk to me until I've had my coffee, or while I'm drinking it, or directly after. Shh, I'm going to make more coffee. Shhhhhh.So gaslighting now just means "when anything bad happens." @adrianartn I haven't, but it sounds really cool!
I always be overthinking these
Retweeted by ~I really like Andre Braugher. He just seems so good in so many ways. @philgibson01 Wow! @BarnesOwl Yeah I guess that makes sense. @jntod Sounds stressful. @NuclearTeeth Oh yeah.

I can wait till someone else steals it. @NuclearTeeth Hmm. Academia continues to sound endlessly stressful. @NuclearTeeth So it's either fine or horrible, but you don't know which until it starts? @CharlieEdmunds That sounds quite nice.Asking here as no one in my family tells me anything.I'm not an academic so I'm not clear exactly what happens in a viva.

Retweeted by ~ @TheRealSitts Regardless of what you think of any politicians this is one of the safest times ever to live in Londo… @TheRealSitts It's a completely wrong generalisation though, so it doesn't make the point very well. @Scientits That's so weird. @Scientits An ENERGY DRINK?Someone fucked a tree.
Retweeted by ~ @TheRealSitts In terms of periods that are more violent than now, it's pretty much most of them. @TheRealSitts If you're interested in the history of London I'd recommend Ackroyd's biography, it's a great read. @TheRealSitts Well you seem to be talking about now. You're not talking about any others, which is the problem.Anyone else have an issue with bears doing drug deals in their back garden?
