A bit of a Friday post/dream post combo this week, and a bit of Twitter thrown in because the big exciting thing at the moment is the latest celeb to start tweeting. And he took his time, I did think he'd have been on there much earlier. But at last @russelltovey is on Twitter. And this is how he chose to prove it was the real him:





And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what's called "knowing your audience."

Funnily enough it wasn't Mr Tovey who featured in my dreams (well he might have done, but I don't remember any of that.) I haven't actually remembered much but what has been a theme this week is, bizarrely, Radio 4. On Wednesday night I dreamed that someone (don't know who) was having a heated rant in my direction, on the subject of Radio 4 sitcoms. Specifically to say that Fags, Mags and Bags is far superior to Cabin Pressure, but on the dubious grounds that the former is about a corner shop and therefore working class and noble, while the latter is about a private airline so probably all rich and posh and rubbish. Actually I do prefer Fags, Mags and Bags, but only because I prefer it to most things, I can listen to the episodes over and over. But I like Cabin Pressure as well. I think the reason this all turned up in my dreams is that Roger Allam, who stars in Cabin Pressure, was in the audience for Anne Boleyn (he presumably gets comps to all the other Globe plays this season because he's in the Henry IVs.) The sitcom is on Radio 4 on Tuesdays if anyone's interested, and there's a couple of episodes left this series - it also has man-of-the-moment Benedict Cumberbatch in it if that helps. (FM&B isn't on at the moment.) As for the class-war element, it may have something to do with the fact that the book I'm reading (John O'Farrell's latest comedy history book) had got as far as Thatcher by that point.

Elsewhere, I dreamed that the country currently had two Prime Ministers sharing the job. Not a PM and a Deputy, but a man and woman with equal power and responsibilities. No, David Cameron wasn't one of them. And Nick Clegg wasn't in a position of power either, just like in real life </satire>. I don't know who the man was but the woman was definitely Celebrity Lesbian Sue Perkins. So maybe the man was Giles Coren. Come on, you'd rather they were running the country, wouldn't you? Sue Perkins was on Just a Minute this week, so another Radio 4 connection.

Oh, maybe I should have put the dreams first - is anyone likely to to keep reading past the topless Tovey pictures? Oh well. Have a good weekend.

Ah but some people might find correcting their grammar patronising.

I should have know you would know it/post it before I could run over here to tell you. (I still think you two look cute together).

About NY, unless you want to come around the weekend of 23 July when I already know I (and a couple others you might recall from NC17/GRA) will be there, plan your trip as best suits you and I will make every possible effort to be there. I probably should be home 4 April and 4 June as those are family birthdays, but otherwise, I'm good.

Heh, I think the entire gaiety on Twitter knew by osmosis the second he joined. Or at least the second he got his tits out.

I'll keep that in mind - knowing how rubbish I am about making plans, I'll probably end up booking other stuff ahead of it and end up needing the later July date anyway.

How about Sue Perkins and Stephen Fry
