Listorama: Facebook status updates vol 6

Betarish is...

feeling well upholstered
at work
now trying to type with a cat on his lap
diving into it already
getting ready to go at it again
has new glasses now
hypertastic, baby
says, insomnia, you might try to break me, but you will not beat me!
all about the work for the next five days or so
in work for the seventh day in a row
in work for the ninth day in a row
in work for the tenth day in a row
in work for the eleventh day in a row, but it’s OK as he’s nearly out of pitch purdah
in work for the twelfth day in a row, but all is calm if not all that awake
in work for the thirteenth day in a row, but the long weekend is coming
not at work! Instead, he’s heading out to Blackheath soon
slowly recovering from the morning’s run
is thinking about what to have for breakfast
no longer thinking about breakfast
back back back
reckons 4.30am is not the best time in the world to be awake
one year and counting
something. Or other. Or maybe nothing at all
not thanking the Academy for anything at all
asking you all to think twice, because it might not be another day in paradise
has installed twitter. Hurrah!
asks: does twitter make the status update here redundant?
resting, but in a non-theatrical sense
has more to do. As always
is all about the something or other
on the way to Rockferry
is chuffed at being asked to be Matt’s best man
a diamond hoo ha man, baby
all la la la whatever really
on civvy street
trying to avoid frustration
must remember not to run if he hasn’t had dinner the night before
will most likely be blown away later
reckons something’s going on. He’s just not sure what
has forgotten himself
is about to start writing. Again.
is now wary of parfum
has too much on
is coming over the hill. But he’s not a monster. Honest
not Fallon, and this is not his brief
thinking small
thinking and writing and presenting. Or will be soon

"Betarish is has new glasses now"?

What strange grammatical construction is this, then?

Me not getting used to when FBook allowed you to stop using 'is' as part of your statement.

So there are plenty of situations like that I'm afraid.
