After a few weeks when I couldn't think of much to say I was wondering if I was getting bored of Twitter. Then on Thursday the Bush Theatre was overrun with Germans, which led to jokes that were completely
new and in no way
dodgy. And on Friday I hit the motherlode, as Your Country Needs You
, the show to choose this year's Royame Uni Eurovision entry, was on TV. UK Eurovision entries haven't exactly been the pinnacle of music in recent years, so expectations were low. Considering what followed, perhaps they weren't low enough...
Ghosts at the Duchess is closing early, not surprising given the reviews. But do I want a refund or my ticket changed to another date?

And the deaths keep coming - although to be fair, Corey Haim perhaps not the *most* surprising ever...

Saying "have a nice day" at the last minute doesn't stop you being the grumpiest shop assistant ever.

Had a bit of a panic, thought I'd lost my keys. I'd just put them in a different pocket.

That was the ultimate "share the most banal thing in the world" tweet, wasn't it? I've now officially bored myself.

I know this play has a German title but why has the entire German nation turned up for this preview?
7:13 PM Mar 11th via txt
The Bush really should let people queue on the stairs like the Finborough does, this is fracking CHAOS! Chaos with added Germans.
7:25 PM Mar 11th via txt
Blimey there's a lot of pushing. Who knew Germans could be so aggressive? Oh.

God, that man is Brian from Spaced. Not Mark Heap, I mean he IS the character.

Oh, hello Alexis. Well, his singing's better than the girl's *faint praise alert* He's wearing too many clothes though. #eurovision

I'm now watching Esma. So, in answer to my last question: Yes. #eurovision

Josh has a girlfriend. And a cravat. These two things don't go together. #eurovision
9:02 PM Mar 12th via web
He's singing all the right notes, but not necessarily in the right order. #eurovision
9:04 PM Mar 12th via web
"They're going to sing in a way they've never sung before." So they'd never sung badly before? #eurovision
9:08 PM Mar 12th via web
They've turned off her microphone. "Quick, or she might bloody sing again!" #eurovision

It's a toughie but I think Esma and the boys are the least worst #eurovision

Oh, I was right then. Why exactly were there six acts if we couldn't vote for them, apart from just padding out the show obvs? #eurovision

The only one who could sort-of sing is already struggling with this one. Good start. #eurovision

I just *actually* shouted out in pain. Coincidentally, I sounded just like Esma! #eurovision

Oh no, she's fucked up, now the idiots will give her pity-votes. THE HORROR! #eurovision

"They've written an amazing song. But they've given me this one to sing instead." #eurovision
9:31 PM Mar 12th via web
Call me a cynic, but could this have in any way been geared towards Josh winning? It's almost like the song was written for him! #eurovision
9:33 PM Mar 12th via web
"That was Josh's version, and the CDs have already been pressed... er, I mean we don't have any favourites..." #eurovision

Before you go voting for Josh, remember: A cravat. A CRAVAT, PEOPLE! #eurovision

Fiddling Gareth Gates man is surrounded by bouncy men in wifebeaters. It's definitely NOT homoerotic. #eurovision

Well that was in no way predictable. Even his "OMG I'm so shocked" face is unconvincing. #eurovision

"That Sounds Good To Me." I like that the song title was chosen on the basis of bitter irony. #eurovision

@nick00031 It's a shame nobody seemed to tell Alexis, he seemed to genuinely think it was a competition.

@lares09 Some rapper. No idea who, it was playing at the gym. (They also had some woman singing English lyrics to it. So. Much. Wrongness.)
