microblogging is made up of two parts "micro", meaning small, and "blogging", short for "weblogging", which is made up of two parts "web", meaning that thing that spiders make, and "logging" meaning cutting down trees

so microblogging is when you're a spider that cuts down small trees

About 3am New Year's Day, a man in a town some 50km away shot a flare from his back garden in lieu of a firework. The fire drifted towards the mountain, landed in the dry summer grass, and started a fire that's still burning today and has traveled to a point on the mountain about 3km away from our town. Along the way, it's burned through a national botanical reserve.

We went for a walk this evening, and drove past the beach at sunset, with the smoke blowing in front of the sun. #photography

Beautiful day in #Melbourne today. Nice day for a drive in the country side. We're waiting for a signal to take us from south Dynon yard to the city and beyond. #trains #railways

There's a fine line between Jabberwocky and Vogon poetry.

A blast from the past for all the #Linux people out there. Behold, the Linux Platypus! This is a proposed mascot for Linux that predates Tux, the penguin.
Hat tip to @craigmaloney for the trip down memory lane!
