InepdShirley Many people down with Mexican Flu in HQ. May have to quarantine staff. Reprimanded ICT staff for calling it swine flu. Such a racist term! 9:20 AM 22-Sep-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Cordon sanitaire is holding well in the reception. Have 5 possible cases of Mexican in flu in triage will move them to ICT Room soon. 3:36 PM 22-Sep-09

Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley The quarantine of the Inepd International staff at our HQ is holding well. 8:40 PM 22-Sep-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Few staff tried to make a break for it out of quarantine. Pretty pathetic of them putting their individual concerns ahead of public health. 8:41 PM 22-Sep-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley One Inepd staff even told me he wife had gone into labor. They will try anything!! 8:42 PM 22-Sep-09
Shane Thompson

Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Now 16 hours we've been in quarantine. Was to meet Cassandra&Fabio tonight at the “Microfinance more than just a trickle down” charity event 8:54 PM 22-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes I met Fabio the model last year and we hit it off really well. He is only in town for a few days then back to Brazil. So frustrating!! 8:55 PM 22-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes This '@InepdShirley has completely lost it. How can she quarantine us like this!! 8:56 PM 22-Sep-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane My flatmate managed to bring my guitar so we will have a bit of a sing along in a few minutes to keep everyone’s spirits up. 8:57 PM 22-Sep-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane Water pump has been overheating, being used to feed air into the ICU. 8:57 PM 22-Sep-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane Trying a 25% water mix direct feed from toilet. Water exits down the fire escape. But basement filling. 8:57 PM 22-Sep-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane Water pump dead. Have to go down to basement. Real death trap. Will have to probably swim underwater to retrieve pump. Hope CO level stable 8:59 PM 22-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes There is no ventilation it's hot and many ICT& Log staff have taken their shoes off. Have tried inhaling a mist of Chanel in a plastic bag. 9:01 PM 22-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes A few of us have formed a team to plan an escape route. Gary from accounts wife is in labor. He's first on our escape list. 9:02 PM 22-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Really concerned '@InepdShane got his flatmate to bring a guitar through the Cordan Sanitaire, now he’s quarantined 9:03 PM 22-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Even the pizza boy was quarantined after accidently walking through the reception. 9:03 PM 22-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Never seen the Advocacy staff so worked up over human rights. Seem to think '@InepdShirley is working outside the law. They're a bit unsure. 9:04 PM 22-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes God!! Listening to the redemption song by '@InepdShane this is so soul destroying. Please help us anyone if your reading our tweets. 9:05 PM 22-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Kelvin son has jimmied the lock on the Expat Medicine Cabinet. Very resourceful young man. 9:06 PM 22-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Listening to “Where is the Love” by Shane and Shirley. The horror, the ear-splitting shrillness of Shirley's voice. 9:07 PM 22-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes I’ve decided to follow Kelvin's son into drug cabinet. Does anyone know if 250mg of ketamine a safe dose and what it can do? 9:08 PM 22-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Gary has found an escape route. His plan is get out through the second floor toilet beside Finance. 9:10 PM 22-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes If anyone is reading these tweets we need a ladder to help us escape at the rear of Inepd International House, opposite the Inepd Dove. 9:10 PM 22-Sep-09
wp_MultiLingualPeaceDove_bigger
AdWaal  @InepdMercedes I just saw your Tweet. It sounds like a terrible situation. 9:11 PM 22-Sep-09
wp_MultiLingualPeaceDove_bigger
AdWaal  @InepdMercedes I wish there was something I could do to help. 9:12 PM 22-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @AdWaal It’s so horrific in here. We are being held against our will by a power crazed maniac and her helpers. 9:12 PM 22-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @AdWaal There is a way to help, all you have to do is bring a ladder to the Inepd Office. 9:13 PM 22-Sep-09
wp_MultiLingualPeaceDove_bigger,Mercedes Bligh
AdWaal  @InepdMercedes But there must be some underlying causes as to why you are in quarantine. 9:14 PM 22-Sep-09
InepdMercedes @AdWaal Yes because InepdShirley is insane and is on a power trip. 9:15 PM 22-Sep-09
wp_MultiLingualPeaceDove_bigger,Mercedes Bligh
AdWaal  @InepdMercedes But shouldn't you look at the history of how this all started. Maybe by investigating this a solution could be found. 9:16 PM 22-Sep-09
InepdMercedes @AdWaal But we have a solution to end our suffering we just need a ladder. 9:16 PM 22-Sep-09
wp_MultiLingualPeaceDove_bigger,Mercedes Bligh
AdWaal  @InepdMercedes There are so many ladders do you know what type? 9:17 PM 22-Sep-09
InepdMercedes @AdWaal Just a bloody big one to reach the second floor. 9:17 PM 22-Sep-09
wp_MultiLingualPeaceDove_bigger,Mercedes Bligh
AdWaal  @InepdMercedes I don't have a ladder, maybe tomorrow the problem will fix itself. 9:18 PM 22-Sep-09
InepdMercedes I better go, Gary’s wife just had a baby so we are going to have a drink with him. He's pretty distraught. 9:19 PM 22-Sep-09
Kelvin Peterson,___204_normal
InepdKelvin 24 hours into quarantine. All of us a bit restless. Terrence my son has been great just a big smile on his face loving this new adventure. 5:19 AM 23-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes 24 hours now into quarantine. I feel so helpless but I know I can make it through this. 5:21 AM 23-Sep-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane Touch and go getting the water pump from basement; just made it. Using now 50% water mix. Basement is now full, worried about ground floor 5:23 AM 23-Sep-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley I think the quarantine is now stable. No one in triage and no bad AshkaFlu(bit like Tamiflu) side effects to date. 5:25 AM 23-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Advocacy dept. has a legal strategy but it will take a week to work. I don't know why we can't just overpower '@InepdShirley & '@InepdShane 5:26 AM 23-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Samantha '@InepdKelvin 's assistant had a good idea to make a Facebook page and a press release over our dire situation. Could work! 5:28 AM 23-Sep-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane Ground floor now filling with water. Could loose power. 5:46 AM 23-Sep-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane If lose power, will bypass main switchboard on ground floor and get feed overhead line outside to the 2nd floor aux. switchboard. 5:48 AM 23-Sep-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Cordon Sanitaire in decorative fountain has been broken by the rising water level in the reception. Will set it up again on 1st floor. 6:02 AM 23-Sep-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane Suffered mild electric shock and flash burn to left hand trying to feed overhead wire in. Should have used 3 pairs dish-washing gloves!! 6:20 AM 23-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Gary from accounts mother brought his new born daughter to the car park. Gary could see it from the second floor. Very emotional moment. 6:34 AM 23-Sep-09
tidenine   @InepdMercedes Does anyone actually have the flu? Poor Gary, poor you, poor everyone. Hang in there. 6:44 AM 23-Sep-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane Suspect ground fl. live, not able to disconnect Aux switchboard to Main. Main Switch under water. Carp from decorative fountain appear dead 6:47 AM 23-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @tidenine We just don't know if anyone has the Mexican flu. '@InepdShirley is convinced, but we are all concerned about her mental state. 6:50 AM 23-Sep-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane Ground floor definitely live. Just did insulated toe test, mid tingling. Ground fl. real death trap. No more pizza deliveries to reception. 7:04 AM 23-Sep-09
George Darroch
georgedarroch  Does anyone know what exactly Inepd are trying to prove? Their website is very funny. http://www.inepd.org/donate.htm 7:06 AM 23-Sep-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Second break out attempt thwarted by '@InepdShane . They would have never made it alive across the reception area anyway. 7:07 AM 23-Sep-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Pathetic attempt by Gary in accounts to illicit sympathy by rustling up newborn in car-park and claiming his wife gave birth last night. 7:14 AM 23-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Desperation mounting. Mathew from intranet services has started to play "No woman, no cry" on '@InepdShane 's guitar. The horror continues. 7:20 AM 23-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Seems hopeless. Offered 1/4 tab Ketamine by '@Inepdkelvin 's son he got from expat med cabinet. Looking more tempting. Is this a safe dosage? 7:29 AM 23-Sep-09
hadeoo   @InepdMercedes Will a heli do? :-) 7:44 AM 23-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes RT '@hadeoo Will a heli do? :-)> That would be great, might have to wait till dark. '@InepdShane has been up on roof for the last hour. 8:06 AM 23-Sep-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane Nearly finished setting up HF radio antenna on roof, in case all other comms. networks go down. Have to remember to double bolt roof door 7:53 AM 23-Sep-09
Theodore F
teddyfrank  @InepdMercedes '@Inepdkelvin '@InepdShane '@InepdShirley Get well soon. Hope you know that Mexican flu infectious for weeks even w/out symptoms 9:08 AM 23-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes @teddyfrank This is terrible, with this information '@InepdShirley and '@InepdShane could keep us here for weeks. 1:05 PM 23-Sep-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley @teddyfrank didn't want to tell the staff this could last weeks. A panicked stampede through the reception could electrocute scores. 1:10 PM 23-Sep-09
Theodore F
teddyfrank  @InepdMercedes '@InepdShirley The Ashkaflu should shorten quarantine time. Just watch out for extrapyramidal side effects/tardive dyskinesia 2:52 PM 23-Sep-09
Theodore F
teddyfrank  @InepdMercedes '@InepdShirley Actually, the ketamine U found might help if anyone starts making involuntary repetitive/purposeless movements 3:02 PM 23-Sep-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane Damn, Inepd office took out the local substation, no power. Atleast ground floor no longer live. Will dive into basement to get torches. 6:10 PM 23-Sep-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Tough day, staff very restless. Now lost power. ICU patients stable. Have organised sing along to keep up staff moral. Damn Mexican Flu. 6:12 PM 23-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Just lost power, difficult conditions. Now '@InepdShirley has organized a group singing activity to keep up moral. 6:19 PM 23-Sep-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley Run out of oral AshkaFlu and have had to start the second dose as a suppository. Mandatory that everyone takes their dose before singalong. 6:25 PM 23-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Singalong not so bad if it shuts up Tom from advocacy. who did a very long Manu Chau and Fela Kuti set. Interns loved it. Some hippie dancing. 6:30 PM 23-Sep-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane Managed to get 3 torches and a solar torch. Lucky main grid didn't go back on while down there. Managed to disconnect main switch as well. 6:54 PM 23-Sep-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane I inhaled some water, bit of a rattle on my lungs. Got a bit lost underwater in the dark when in the basement. 6:55 PM 23-Sep-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley The black out saved a lot of time with the suppository dose. Everyone could stay put & just drop their pants while the dose was inserted. 6:59 PM 23-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes The group singing idea is not so bad. Even Gary from Accounts has joined. Going to do "We are the world" a Live Aid singer from the hat. 7:01 PM 23-Sep-09
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin Doing a singalong now to keep up moral. I got Billy Joel, really lucky pick. Quarantine has been a great bonding experience for the staff. 7:05 PM 23-Sep-09
Kelvin Peterson
InepdKelvin Quaratntine has brought me and my son closer together. We haven't spoken much but he just smiled and hugged me for 3 hours this afternoon. 7:06 PM 23-Sep-09
Shane Thompson
InepdShane Could be in Quaratine longer than expected according to '@teddyfrank . Making temp shelter cubicles from suspended ceiling for sleeping. 7:15 PM 23-Sep-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley I managed to get Celine Dion for the group singing of "We are the world" So lucky to get her. 7:16 PM 23-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes I managed to get Tina Turner. Lot of pressure from girls in HR to swap. No chance what so ever . Could do the Nut Bush before I could walk 7:21 PM 23-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes This is crazy '@InepdShirley is claiming she got Celine Dion. Most of us are sure she wasn't involved in Live Aid. 7:26 PM 23-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Phillipe from Psych-soc thinks '@InepdShirley delusional. Have to take her diag. with a grain of salt. She thought Log Phil had cervical cancer. 7:29 PM 23-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes She '@InepdShirley insisted on starting the song standing on a chair with arms outstretched leaning out and '@InepdShane holding her. 7:31 PM 23-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Gary very upset, he had Lionel Richie and was meant to start '@InepdShirley ruined it. He's sitting by himself looking out at the car-park. 7:37 PM 23-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Really impressed with '@InepdKelvin performance of Billy Joel. Nice touch rolling up his suit sleeve one roll. 7:38 PM 23-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes We're all apart of this great big family, and you know the truth is all we need. It was nice to do a little duet with '@InepdKelvin. 7:42 PM 23-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes Went well but '@InepdShane was pretty lost with Kenny Logins and Tom from Advocacy really couldn't couldn't give Huey Lewis what he needed. 7:44 PM 23-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes To be honest this I think this has brought the Inepd International staff closer together, well maybe except for Gary from accounts. 7:46 PM 23-Sep-09
Mercedes Bligh
InepdMercedes I feel real solidarity with all people around the world quarantined, no matter what disease or infection they have. This tweets for you. 7:49 PM 23-Sep-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley That was magical. Felt so alive standing up on the stool with '@InepdShane holding me, singing "We are the world". with all the staff. 7:51 PM 23-Sep-09
Shirley de Vries
InepdShirley I think we might end our second night in quarantine with a game of musical statues. '@InepdShane has already rigged up some temp. shelters. 7:54 PM 23-Sep-09
wp_MultiLingualPeaceDove_bigger,Mercedes Bligh
AdWaal  @InepdMercedes How is your situation tonight are you still in quarantine. 7:55 PM 23-Sep-09
InepdMercedes @AdWaal Yes, the conditions are getting worse, no power, ventilation and many of the toilets are blocked up. If only we could get help. 7:58 PM 23-Sep-09
wp_MultiLingualPeaceDove_bigger,Mercedes Bligh
AdWaal  @InepdMercedes I did some investigations of your staff's twitter trails and came up with some pretty interesting findings. 7:59 PM 23-Sep-09
InepdMercedes @AdWaal But all we need is a ladder to get out the second floor toilet not an investigation. 8:00 PM 23-Sep-09
wp_MultiLingualPeaceDove_bigger,Mercedes Bligh
AdWaal  @InepdMercedes Well I disagree. The root causes of you present situation are important. It can be traced back to a Mexican Flu outbreak. 8:02 PM 23-Sep-09
InepdMercedes @AdWaal Yes we know all that we were here, we're suffering and we need help to get away from power crazy '@InepdShirley and her fiancée . 8:04 PM 23-Sep-09
