I reached my 4000th tweet this week, a milestone that Twitter itself celebrated in a rather dubious manner, by resetting my post count to zero. At least it didn't actually make all those earlier tweets disappear, as it's sometimes been known to, so I can still do my weekly roundup. Which this time largely consists of me complaining about having a cold. And in between episodes of X Factor
I rewatched the spoof Britain's Got The Pop Factor
- as suspected, it still wasn't quite as bizarre as the real thing.
Yay, I've somehow got rid of #newtwitter
and it's let me back on - I've had a blank screen since Tuesday night!

*phew* managed to drag my carcass out of bed and to the gym today, I was starting to worry my lethargy was becoming permanent.

Sleb Spot by Proxy: My sister nearly bumping into Jedward at Heathrow. No word on whether Customs were bullying them.

Nearly an hour after the play ended, my bus turns up. THANKS BORIS! Cunt.

Ugh, got a stinking cold. Off to stock up on Vitamin C etc.

Funny how quickly the day goes past if all you do is sleep and drink hot lemon and honey.

"Can you believe we're down to the final 10 already?" Given we were meant to be there 2 weeks ago, yes I can. #xfactor

"I've done dumps." Having functioning bowels is nothing to brag about on national telly, Mary. #xfactor

By the way Dannii, what are you wearing? Halloween was last week. #xfactor

"People should judge on your vocal ability, not what's been in the papers." At least the stories in the papers actually exist Louis #xfactor

"Your performance stood out." It did actually, she hit some of the right notes. #xfactor
8:40 PM Nov 6th via web
I don't generally hate Louis, but his refusal to say Wagner's name properly redefines cuntishness. #xfactor
8:48 PM Nov 6th via web
"I want Wagner's fans to pick up their phones NOW!" The lines aren't open yet. So that sounds about right. #xfactor

Matt's had a number of jobs, and he couldn't be arsed to do any of them. #xfactor

Come on TreyC, try and be awesome again, I'm sure you can manage it. #xfactor
9:08 PM Nov 6th via web
TreyC wearing a maternity frock, doing a few bum notes in a song that's been done to death. Still best one tonight, mind.

Extra ad break before Wand Erection come on, just in case it wasn't obvious enough yet that they're The Chosen Ones. #xfactor
9:14 PM Nov 6th via web
I'll say it again, if Peter Kay wants to be an M&S Harpy he could at least do it as Geraldine #adsofthexfactor

What parallel universe is this where The Blond One is allowed to do lead vocals? #xfactor
9:22 PM Nov 6th via web
"You remind me of Westlife, Take That, Boyzone." Boyband reminds Louise of boybands. #xfactor
9:23 PM Nov 6th via web
Still, I guess it's better than "Zayn, you remind me of a young Osama Bin Laden." #xfactor
9:24 PM Nov 6th via web
I'd say the recap clips are deliberately picking the out-of-tune bits, but what else is there? #xfactor
9:28 PM Nov 6th via web
I might watch Britain's Got The Pop Factor. Haven't watched it in ages, I want to see how far the real thing's overtaken it in insanity.
5:14 PM Nov 7th via web
"Jetskiing over Niagara Falls, isn't that dangerous?" "Yeah we know that... now." #popfactor
5:40 PM Nov 7th via web
@thesloppydog It was 10 minutes before the first ad break though. The X Factor would have squeezed at least two in by then.

Geraldine has NO CONFIDENCE! #popfactor
5:52 PM Nov 7th via web
Free Nelson Mandela -> Umbrella -> C'est La Vie still makes more sense than any of Wagner's "medleys." #popfactor

Well done Dermot, couldn't even get through your first sentence without fucking up. #xfactor
8:00 PM Nov 7th via web
"We are almost halfway." Almost. Only bloody ALMOST. #xfactor
8:02 PM Nov 7th via web
"Wand Erection are getting better and better and better." As if there was another way they could possibly go. #xfactor
8:13 PM Nov 7th via web
I never saw the series Shane Ward was in, so I wasn't previously aware he owned clothes. #xfactor
8:15 PM Nov 7th via web
Yay it's PacMan! Oh and look Kylie's there too. #xfactor
8:29 PM Nov 7th via web
Dermot grunting like an aroused sea lion. I think he might like Kylie a bit. #xfactor
8:30 PM Nov 7th via web
At least 2 out of 3 ads are Christmassy ones now. *sigh*
8:34 PM Nov 7th via web
That's TreyC gone then. "She's been bottom 2 once before, she has to go." "But Hatey's been there twice." "LALALACAN'THEARYOU!" #xfactor

If Nom yoghurt turns out to taste anything less than amazing, I'm calling Trade Descriptions.

"Please don't give up on me." We gave up on you months ago, TAKE THE HINT! #xfactor
8:48 PM Nov 7th via web
4000 Tweets! I suspect this milestone may get slightly lost, considering.
8:49 PM Nov 7th via web
Hatey throws toys out of pram and has onstage nervous breakdown, and I'm still not convinced the judges won't save her. #xfactor
8:51 PM Nov 7th via web
Well, that result is in no way going to be controversial. #xfactor
8:56 PM Nov 7th via web
Next time you want to ask me why I don't vote on #xfactor
I shall point out how much respect this show has for the mugs who give them money
9:00 PM Nov 7th via web
"Here are the rules of the votes you're paying us to register. Unless we don't like your decision and change them." #xfactor

I preferred Take That before Fat Bob came back. SO THERE.

@kerrymctweety If Shane from Boyzone announces something on Daybreak and nobody's watching, does he make a sound?

@RadShef If you don't sit on the floor during the Wall round and say "You know what? Sod it" then it's just not showbiz enough.

Right, gotta go offline for a bit so everyone remember to watch #onlyconnect
and cheer on Team lowculture tonight ;)

@RadShef Oh and well done for finally getting a reference to the website past the editors!

@nick00031 Are the cute camboy and your need for a bath in any way related?
