Tweet and lowdown 47: Beard-and-a-frock

Yet again I've got a cold, so expect my Twitter feed to mainly consist of me grumbling about that for the next few days. In the meantime here's what was on my mind in the last week, starting off with one of those times Twitter really comes into its own with the #whatstigma hashtag, where everyone shared their mental health issues to help take away the stigma associated with them; then going from the sublime to the ridiculous as the Tube seemed to get taken over by unconvincing transvestites:

My plan not to have a nap this afternoon was partially successful (i.e. it was a more a lie-down than a proper nap.)

Sat on the tube opposite the world's least convincing midget transvestite. Stilettoes and copious stubble.

And a wig that's DEFINITELY mopped a floor or two in its time.

@pretinama No anger here. But only Kenny Everett rocked the beard-and-a-frock combo.

Going for a walk while there's a bit of sunshine - we don't want rickets, do we?

ANOTHER unconvincing tranny on the tube? Actually this one might be a woman. With the voice of Barry White.

Poster ad for a book called "The Rembrandt Secret." Please tell me this is a spoof.

@emslj I'm almost impressed that you managed to avoid Sondheim last year. Some shows got staged that even HE'd forgotten he wrote.

The Union Theatre always seems to have such good-looking audiences. It's handy when there's no totty in the actual play.

So, only the first #becominghuman was 12 minutes and the rest are just 5? *sadface*

Well done Twitter, you've made me actualLOL several times today *scratches Twitter behind the ear*

*tsk* I saw a penny, I picked it up... where was my bloody good luck then? Certainly not in my bowling scores.

Seriously, I'm getting another cold? This winter's been a nightmare.
