Tweet and lowdown 4: One of those bodybuilding pensioners

Contrary to what I said in my first tweet of last week, I don't think I did have a cold after all; I think it was actually my hayfever kicking in quite early this year. I almost wish it had been a cold because at least that would have been gone by now, whereas hayfever'll be giving me sneezes and that horrible itchy throat for months to come. Elsewhere on Twitter, it was an exciting week because Grace Dent (Guardian TV reviewer, occasional TV show panelist and lowculture icon) replied to one of my tweets. I'm almost embarrassed about it though because it was in reply to a fairly cliched "Guardian/bad spelling" joke. Ah well, here's my tweets from the last week:

Boo, I've definitely got a cold now. That's what happpens when the weather changes every five minutes :(

Dammit, I knew announcing my plans to write was a jinx. Have instead ended up feeling unwell and consequently napping all afternoon :(

Well if there's no Damages what am I supposed to do with myself?

Double Sleb Spot: Harry Lloyd & Rupert Friend, Leics Sq. (3rd Harry Lloyd spot, he's stalking me. I'm ok with that.)

Sleb Spot: Julian Ovenden looking scruffy on Haymarket. Unf.

It's 10:15pm and I could still get away with no coat. Bloody weird thing, "the weather."

Ew, ew, ew. Craiiiiiiig David in @AttitudeMag looks like one of those bodybuilding pensioners.

Right, today I actually DID stay awake and start on 2nd draft (well, the "exciting" note-making stage of 2nd draft anyway.)

I'm in a t-shirt! I'm outdoors! I'm outdoors in a t-shirt! (I have brought a coat for later though, I'm not THAT optimistic)

Had a lie-in; have lost another 2 lbs; Being Human Series 2 DVD arrived; Doctor Who later. Not a bad start to the day.

@gracedent Pfft you can tell that's bootleg. It's spelt right.

Well, that was odd #doctorwho

Also, the ending: Will the Moff always have a quick next-episode cliffhanger, like Hartnell's era used to? I'd quite like that. #doctorwho

Was I the only person to notice the callback to "The Idiot's Lantern?" (Magpie electricals.) #doctorwho

Ooh! How did I not know about new You Have Been Watching?

I've only ever seen The BIG Questions on the gym TV with the sound turned down, so I assume it's *exactly* like "Big Talk" ...

...with Nicky Campbell shouting "COME ON BOFFINS, IS THERE A GOD OR NOT?" Please do not disabuse me of this notion if I'm wrong.

@D_Hollingsworth "more wordy" - that sounds like me all right LOL.

@sutty76 That's what I thought about the kids that didn't get eaten - Liz X was a bit of a psycho bitch on the sly to allow all that.

@sutty76 I knew I'd forgotten something, not so rare: Nobody has ever died in a Moffat ep except from natural causes, or died then come back

@sutty76 I've seen people mentioning Zero, could be a coincidence so far but if it gets said next week that'd be the clincher.

Jenny Eclair turning herself into Su Pollard is deliberate, right? Right?

FFS no water in building until "sometime tonight." Had to improvise a shower out of a 5L water bottle and a washing-up bowl.
