Twitter ye not 44: Riverdancing by teatime 
20th-Jan-2010 05:59 pm
A relatively quiet Twitter week (tweek?) for me, although it started with some excitement as that's when the whole Tomasz Schafernaker thing happened. For the benefit of Americans and other aliens, Tomasz Schafernaker is a BBC TV weatherman, previously best known for once accidentally offending Scotland, and for occasionally getting the giggles on screen. Then last week he unexpectedly appeared on the front cover of gay magazine Attitude's new fitness supplement, and let's say people were slightly interested in this. Purely in the interests of science, here is the aforementioned cover photo in case the link below ever stops working.

Oh dear, now I fear my collected tweets from the week may appear slightly anticlimactic. Well I did live-tweet Popstar to Operastar and there were a few of those fun Twitter word games again... Hello? Come back!

*cough* *splutter* RT @merseytart http://brizzly.com/pic/12EB - Tomasz Schafernaker in this month's Attitude. Drooling slightly.

*That* issue of Attitude's just arrived in the post. Don't expect to see me for a while.

"We want your doof-doofs." Oddly threatening-sounding Eastenders advert.

Yikes, that old man's face was scary. Not mocking the afflicted, honest; just genuinely disconcerted by the afflicted.

Wait, Meatloaf and Laurence Llewellyn-Bowen are opera professionals since when now? #popstartooperastar

Oh Meatloaf turns out to be a mentalist. There's a surprise. #popstartooperastar

Why did Nolan get the Pimp Slot? Even out of that lot, is she really the main attraction? #popstartooperastar

Whoa! We don't have any anchormen like that here :(

To be fair we didn't realise we did either, until he did this. Of course now people are claiming they could always tell from when they have "dress-down" days:

Umm, dare I ask what "stunning secret" he reveals???
20th-Jan-2010 10:31 pm (UTC)
Don't get too excited, as far as I can tell the stunning secret is the one you can see here, i.e. what he looks like when he's not doing the weather. I thought it might be a "stunning exercise secret" for how he got to look like that, but if it is then "exercise loads and don't eat anything remotely interesting" is pretty much all I can get from the article. This is how people are used to seeing him: (I've posted a different one in the comment above too.)

Didn't you know about TS' photoshoot yet?

Ahem, I can't imagine how this happened, but you seem to have passed right over my opening paragraph and looked straight at the photo. Funny where your eye is drawn sometimes eh? Yep I knew about it, this is my weekly Twitter roundup and a week ago, for some reason, this was all anyone could tweet about ;)

And apparently he lives in London with his flat mates...

And he goes to a Virgin Active gym according to the Attitude article, but he doesn't say which one - honestly Tomasz, do you want to be stalked or don't you?

No. I meant that I was surprised you hadn't blogged it previously :)

Heh, I would have but I knew I'd have an excuse to post it here. And I wondered if it might make this a bit more popular than my usual Twitter roundups. *looks up at comments* Hmmmm....
