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!

"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

To be fair Kym, you didn't expect to be singing *anything* in front of an audience ever again. #popstartooperastar

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

I'd love if the ASA demanded proof of miracles. "If Stephen Hawking isn't Riverdancing by teatime, you're nicked!"

*tsk* RSC, how wasteful - THREE identical mailouts, each with my name spelt slightly differently. And all for shows I've already booked for.
