Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Heading off now to the photo shoot for Cleo's Sexiest Aidworker. Will meet '@InepdShane there in around 40 minutes. I will be live tweeting. 6:35 AM 26-Oct-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @meganschiebe Thanks for the writing. I am working on an Inepd Guideline "Easy reading surgical procedures for poorly qualified staff". 6:40 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Great to be back after the extended Incoherence Leave. I am going direct now to the Cleo Sexiest Aidworkers photo shoot. 7:15 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Then will head to the Inepd office for a little while before my flight to Florida this afternoon. 7:15 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Will be doing a workshop on "Time Poor Donors" in Miami. Florida has the highest concentration of time poor donors in the world. 7:16 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Will meet '@InepdShane at the photo shoot. He is our entrant in the Cleo Sexiest Aidworker Competition. 7:17 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Because of '@InepdShane 's imprisonment in the Congo he really has a great story and a real chance to win. 7:17 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes We still have a few Save Inepd Shane E-Cards we never sold if anyone wants one: http://bit.ly/1Kmsjo 7:17 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes It will be great to meet up with Cassandra my friend at Cleo. She works as a Photo editor. 7:18 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes So much has happened in the last three weeks while I was on leave. 7:19 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes I tried to volunteer to help other organisations like RedR through facebook but surprisingly there weren't interested in our Inepd Celebs. 7:20 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes The fallout from our period in quarantine is still ongoing. A part of me feels that '@InepdShirley 's quarantining us was so unnecessary. 7:20 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Gary from Accounts has found it difficult to cope. 7:21 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes He still feels incredible guilty missing the birth of his first child because he was quarantined in the Inepd office. 7:21 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes He has become fixated on male lactation as a way to compensate for missing the birth and to support his wife. 7:21 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes This has further knocked his self esteem as he has produced so little milk so far. 7:21 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes He apparently has a milk pump attached 24/7 to his breasts while he is not trying to breast feed his child. His nipples are a mess. 7:22 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes HR have really not been very understanding and have refused to give him timeoff to breast feed. 7:22 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes His bi-breasted milk pump was really unnerving the office last Friday. Sounds remarkably like an iron lung. 7:22 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Just arriving now. I arranged to meet '@InepdShane in the foyer. I hope '@InepdShirley doesn't turn up. 7:23 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Just about to start the live tweet of the Cleo Sexiest Aidworker Photo Shoot with '@InepdShane. 7:23 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes 5 minutes till the photo shoot still no sign of '@InepdShane 7:24 AM 26-Oct-09
Steve Jackson
ourman  An NGO comms manager just did an update that was six consecutive tweets long. If it's that long - blog it 7:24 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes He is still not here. This is the biggest publicity piece we have got so far this year. I can't believe he is late. Cleo won't like this 7:28 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Cassandra is asking what's going on. I have tried to call '@InepdShane but he is just not picking up his phone. 7:28 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes We have such a good chance this year. 7:29 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes MSF has thrown in the towel already by putting up a male nurse. And Oxfam have a Community Organiser with no chance to win. 7:29 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh

InepdShane @InepdMercedes I won't be able to make it in time. I have been in bed for the 3 days. 7:32 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh

Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley  @InepdMercedes Yes once he switched to Balsamico vinegar from natural vinegar his rash really cleared up. Although with some staining. 7:35 AM 26-Oct-09

Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdShane '@InepdShirley But we have just lost one of the biggest publicity events for Inepd this year. 7:40 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdShane '@InepdShirley My friend Cassandra at Cleo had to pull a lot of strings to get you in. How could you pair ruin this for Inepd. 7:41 AM 26-Oct-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdMercedes We got married in Gibraltar near Spain. We are now on our honeymoon at the Stayokay Hostel in the Vondel Park in Amsterdam. 7:41 AM 26-Oct-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane  @InepdMercedes We put our dorm beds together and have been in bed ever since. We are having a Bed-In for World Peace not Justice. 7:42 AM 26-Oct-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane Yeah right on '@InepdShane World Peace not Justice!! 7:43 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdShane '@InepdShirley Pull yourselves together Amsterdam is a literal cesspool of depravity. 7:44 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdShane '@InepdShirley What ever you're taking stop and straighten yourselves out. 7:44 AM 26-Oct-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane  @InepdMercedes We not taking any drugs. The only drug weíre on is L.O.V.E. 7:45 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdShane Look I donít care what this drug is called stop it now. I had the most dreadful stay in Amsterdam with my friend Cassandra. 7:45 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdShane '@InepdShirley She had a spliff in Grasshopper Coffee Shop and met this dreadful environmentalist type. 7:46 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdShane '@InepdShirley Cassandra was also lost in a haze of love for the next 48 hours with this very hairy greenie. 7:47 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdShane One visit to the Anna Frank house and this pair were going to devote their lives to Humanitarian and Environmental causes. 7:48 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdShane '@InepdShirley Cassandra was going to throw her career in cutting edge social commentary and fashion with Cleo out the window. 7:49 AM 26-Oct-09
rachiesparrow  @ourman Why would you give to a middle man who would then give to another middle man? Terrible website also. Cute guinea pig though. 7:49 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdShane '@InepdShirley She wanted to spend the rest of her life with this yak wool jumper wearing hippy. 7:50 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdShane '@InepdShirley Thankfully managed to drag her back to London on the train when she passed out. 7:50 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Poor thing she was heartbroken for a week. 7:51 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdShirley '@InepdShane Where was I. 7:51 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdShirley '@InepdShane This is a disaster. '@InepdShane is supposed to be a bachelor for the sexiest aidworker competition. 7:51 AM 26-Oct-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdMercedes Sorry '@InepdMercedes we kind of got wrapped up in this crazy magic thatís love. 7:52 AM 26-Oct-09
mikewhills  I'm definitely not laughing. Honest. RT '@ourman: Is this NGO real? Almost seems like a satire: http://bit.ly/rfVnE 7:52 AM 26-Oct-09
rachiesparrow  @ourman Yeah - the crapness of the site just seems to highlight their inepditude. 7:52 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdShane '@InepdShirley When is this crazy magic likely to bring you two back to London. 7:53 AM 26-Oct-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley That was really beautiful. Our humanitarian impulses can direct us a little but who knows where weíre going to land. 7:54 AM 26-Oct-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdMercedes Who knows what the future holds. We are all just like specks of humanitarian dust blown by humanitarianism mighty wind. 7:54 AM 26-Oct-09
Steve Jackson
ourman  Re last tweet about weird NGO - this is how they tweet. Very very odd set up: http://bit.ly/fyDdc 7:54 AM 26-Oct-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdShirley '@InepdShane Really, well impulses are taking me back to our partially destroyed office to do some work. 7:55 AM 26-Oct-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley Maybe we should have sent a few tweets just to let Inepd know what was happening. 7:55 AM 26-Oct-09
Steve Jackson
ourman  @alanna_shaikh I am gobsmacked. Can this really be real? Would they really choose that name? Am I missing something? 7:55 AM 26-Oct-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane How could we. It was so intense the moment we broke down the Cordan Sanitaire. 7:56 AM 26-Oct-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley The moment that .05% Chlorinated water surged down the foyer stairs I felt so free. I felt part of something greater . 7:56 AM 26-Oct-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane Why don't we just keep tweeting our stream of consciousness. 7:57 AM 26-Oct-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley You know before I felt only a Charity could have a humanitarian imperative and humanitarians have impulses. 7:58 AM 26-Oct-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley Lately I have felt that together we also have a humanitarian imperative. 7:58 AM 26-Oct-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane I want the world to know what love can be in it's purist most intense form. 7:58 AM 26-Oct-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley I love you '@InepdShirley your my humanitarian imperative that gives my humanitarian impulses their light. 7:59 AM 26-Oct-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane I feel exactly the same. I love you '@InepdShane 7:59 AM 26-Oct-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane I am so proud of you and the stand we are making with our Bed-In "World Peace not Justice" 8:00 AM 26-Oct-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShirley I am so proud of you and the stand we are making with our Bed-In "World Peace not Justice" 8:00 AM 26-Oct-09

CafeThawra  @SubMedina Oh God, It all looks so professionnal :-D Thank God it's not serious, what with all the guinea pigs lol 8:13 AM 26-Oct-09
Chris Edwards
chrised  @mikewhills I call Poe. Charity Commission has no record for Inepd. And their blog URL is humanitariandating.com. Yet it's so detailed. 8:18 AM 26-Oct-09
Spike Wyatt
SpikeTheLobster  @ourman That moves it from satire to scam, then. 8:27 AM 26-Oct-09
