The Ballad of Shane and Shirley
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley Are you still up. 6:02 PM 25-Feb-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley I can do that. You should be taking it easy with the baby on the way. 6:03 PM 25-Feb-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane Yes I've just finished cleaning up the dining room in the chalet and setting the tables for breakfast. 6:03 PM 25-Feb-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane I wanted to wait up for you. I thought we could site outside for a few minutes and look at the stars with a hot cocoa. 6:05 PM 25-Feb-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley The stars are so bright tonight. Reminds of the night sky on our explo in Niger. 6:08 PM 25-Feb-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley I will never forget that rapid assessment with the bark MUAC tapes we made. 6:09 PM 25-Feb-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley Do you remember how upset you were with me when I included 560 kids outside the selection criteria polluting a weeks data! 6:11 PM 25-Feb-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane I was so angry with you. I never told you but I found after the explo the Muac markings were wrong. We overestimated by 50%. 6:14 PM 25-Feb-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane I never had the heart to tell you. But at least we didn't exclude the genuinely malnourished. 6:15 PM 25-Feb-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin @InepdShane and '@InepdShirley I just saw that you two were online. Have you given any thought to coming back and working in the office. 6:16 PM 25-Feb-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin @InepdShane & '@InepdShirley Really exciting developments last few days. We're going to expand and implement Forward Accountability. 6:19 PM 25-Feb-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin @InepdShane & '@InepdShirley It would be great if you could be apart of it. There is so much to do. You have an Inepd future if you want ! 6:20 PM 25-Feb-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane  @InepdKelvin We'll talk about it Kelvin. It's just we are so happy up here. We thought we would stay on for the summer season . 6:22 PM 25-Feb-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane  @Inepdkelvin It's so peaceful up here once the German, Brittish, Italian and Dutch skiers are asleep It's just what we needed after Cop15. 6:24 PM 25-Feb-10
Ian Thorpe
ithorpe  @Michael_Keizer '@alanna_shaikh but since it is forward accountability you can tell them you will have it 2 years from now if you get the job 6:30 PM 25-Feb-10
Wronging Rights
WrongingRights  Shall we place bets? '@Michael_Keizer '@alanna_shaikh When I saw it, it made me wonder how many applications INEPD would be getting. 6:48 PM 25-Feb-10

Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane I have saved some dinner for you. See if you can get a few minutes off to come back to the Chalet. 5:03 PM 28-Feb-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley Klaus is taking over in 20 minutes. I have the whole night with you. We should go for a small walk , such a beautiful night. 5:04 PM 28-Feb-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane Shane. I am so happy up here in the Alps. Everything is so perfect. Is this real! When there is still suffering in the world. 5:07 PM 28-Feb-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley This is our time, for us to be at peace to experience the birth of our child and watch it grow. 5:08 PM 28-Feb-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane But there is still so much injustice and unpeacefulness in the world & we can do nothing up here. Shouldn't we go back to Inepd 5:10 PM 28-Feb-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley But we are helping, we will be creating a happy and loving family for our child, making a better future for all with our love. 5:12 PM 28-Feb-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane We can have a loving family in London and still be part of Inepd. 5:16 PM 28-Feb-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane When you were in jail for the 2nd time I realised I had been a fool that as an individual there can be no peace without justice. 5:17 PM 28-Feb-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley When I was in jail in Copenhagen and was denied twitter access I felt the same. I knew our movement was dead. We all knew! 5:18 PM 28-Feb-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley I knew in my heart that De Waalanism was a fools paradise when you stopped me from killing Sven, the Normwegian Spruce. 5:20 PM 28-Feb-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley As a group we have avoiding talking about De Waalanism but we have to meet with Sigrid, Bakti and Klaus. We have to talk. 5:22 PM 28-Feb-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane I am so relieved I didn't want to bring it up in case I upset you. We all know the movement is dead. 5:24 PM 28-Feb-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane Let's go back. I feel like I've been suppressing my humanitarian impulses the last few months. I feel like I can breath again! 5:27 PM 28-Feb-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley Ok we go, but you have to take it easy Stay at your desk. Work on your "Surgical Procedures Guideline for Unqualified Staff" 5:32 PM 28-Feb-10
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdShane and '@InepdShirley I just saw you two online. Look I have a wild card entry for the Humanitarian Couple of the Year Awards. 5:35 PM 28-Feb-10
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdShane '@InepdShirley you two would have a real chance of winning this year. 5:36 PM 28-Feb-10
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdShane '@InepdShirley I know we've had our difference with the Cleo Sexiest Aidworker Photo shoot and the quarantine incident. 5:38 PM 28-Feb-10
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdShane '@InepdShirley I've forgiven you, such small differences anyway in the light of what we can achieve with forward accountability. 5:39 PM 28-Feb-10
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @InepdShane and '@InepdShirley Well think about it and here is the link for more information on the awards: http://bit.ly/9UdXml 5:40 PM 28-Feb-10

Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley It is such an exciting time to be with Inepd. I feel a little jealous stuck in the office. I know I am playing a role. 4:20 PM 4-Mar-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley I know that for '@InepdShane as well as myself it is difficult to not be involved directly in close proximity to people in need. 4:22 PM 4-Mar-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Well we have a child and raising him or her will become our life work. 4:24 PM 4-Mar-10

InepdShane Still in the office. Trying to get a few last orders up to scratch. We have 5 new projects opening up this week . 4:28 PM 4-Mar-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane Because we had financial issues the last 12 months. Many field programs couldn't expand. Now so many are taking the opportunity. 4:29 PM 4-Mar-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane This Forward Accountability concept has really made such a quick impact on what we can do in the field. 4:30 PM 4-Mar-10

Trevor
Gotliepsen  @Inepdkelvin These are very complicated products to market and although Howard is very talented, experience is necessary to launch a derivative. 6:34 PM 4-Mar-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin @Gotliepsen Thanks for the heads up. I have a bit of experience with these products from my time with RBS. I am keeping a close eye, thanks. 6:36 PM 4-Mar-10
Trevor
Gotliepsen  @Inepdkelvin He can surely learn from your experience. I suggest getting some advice in the city on these products from 1 or 2 brokers. 6:39 PM 4-Mar-10
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin @Gotliepsen Always worthwhile getting a second opinion. Will talk to a few old friends next week about our Inepd derivative products. 6:42 PM 4-Mar-10
Trevor
Gotliepsen  @InepdKelvin Just remembered. I am travelling to London again in two weeks. Would be great to meet up with your team again.

Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane I had been thinking, I am still fit and feel fine. Why not just one last explo mission before we settle down. 6:53 PM 5-Mar-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane They still haven't been able to find anyone for the Niger explo missions. We know the place and it will be just a few days. 6:54 PM 5-Mar-10
Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley I'm not sure, I know you feel fit but I wouldn't forgive myself if anything happened to you or the baby. 6:55 PM 5-Mar-10
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane I'll be fine. It would be good for us after all that has happened in the last few months. 6:56 PM 5-Mar-10

Shane Thompson
InepdShane @InepdShirley I don't need to feel anymore alive by doing another explo mission. 6:58 PM 5-Mar-10
Shane Thompson,Shane Thompson,Shirley de Vries

Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @InepdShane After the baby is born we will not be doing anymore missions for a long time. I need this Shane! 7:00 PM 5-Mar-10
Shane Thompson
