This week on my Twitter feed
, well it's the 'lympics, innit. Being British, this means I am aggressively opposed to the whole thing until it starts, then aggressively defensive of it from the opening ceremony on. Subject to change.
What about me, exactly, made you think "we should walk up to where he's standing and surround him with screaming kids?"

There's subtle clues that this is something to do with the 'lympics. http://twitpic.com/abxc3i

They're doing it one more time tonight apparently. http://twitpic.com/abxcdp

@Weez Surely if he's understudying they should change it to "I'm bringing Killingback (yeah) Them motherfuckers don't know how to act."
9:07 PM - 26 Jul 12 via trill
It's not Shrew if nobody pisses on the stage. Apparently. #intervaltweets

Evil Niall from Hollyoaks is going to be in Season 2 of #revenge

This week's #bloghitsoftheweek

By the way the reason What The Butler Saw is most-viewed post: "Nick Hendrix Naked" gets searched for at least once a day #bloghitsoftheweek
2:34 PM - 27 Jul 12 via web
Do we have a hashtag for that thing tonight? One that won't get us put in the Tower if we say something vaguely negative?

"Jubilee colours?" I think the flag's the same colours however many years the Queen's failed to die actually #lympics

"It's amazing, I live in the North-East of England. We don't have fire." #Olympics

Heh, I like the little reference to the South Bank Show. #Olympics
9:02 PM - 27 Jul 12 via TweetDeck
I wonder if Sir Ken got knighted specially for this. Maybe McKellen was busy and they needed a knight. #Olympics
9:09 PM - 27 Jul 12 via TweetDeck
I'm a bit worried the big surprise is going to be the "train" from Frankenstein. #Olympics

@revstan Jonny Lee Miller rolling around naked for 15 minutes would at least be different that Beijing.

"This section is named Pandemonium, after the capital city of Hell. It's about the Central Line next week." #Olympics
9:16 PM - 27 Jul 12 via TweetDeck
The international audience will in no way be staring in confusion at the Pearly Kings and Queens #Olympics
9:21 PM - 27 Jul 12 via TweetDeck
Sir Ken's cigar's unlit. Still, the Olympic flame'll be along soon. #Olympics

I like that you could hear the audience collectively coming when they realised it was JK Rowling. #olympics
9:40 PM - 27 Jul 12 via TweetDeck
The Olympic Stadium is full of Maries. *something something about Grindr overloading in Olympic village* #olympics
9:43 PM - 27 Jul 12 via TweetDeck
Opening ceremony makes sole concession to the rest of the world by including Mr Bean. #olympics
9:48 PM - 27 Jul 12 via TweetDeck
By the way, how come my Twitter feed didn't explode over Stephen Campbell Moore? #olympics
9:57 PM - 27 Jul 12 via TweetDeck
Was I the only one to hear the TARDIS? #olympics
10:01 PM - 27 Jul 12 via TweetDeck
"Oh yeah, world, we also invented the internet. Suck it." #olympics
10:09 PM - 27 Jul 12 via TweetDeck
So, a quick snatch of TARDIS noise is the ponly Doctor Who reference we get? Shame. #olympics
10:21 PM - 27 Jul 12 via TweetDeck
Ah Estonia. My theatregoing this year has mainly taught me they are a ridiculously attractive nation. #olympics

11:12 PM - 27 Jul 12 via TweetDeck
I thought they just announced "Yves St Laurent" as a country. At this point I wouldn't be surprised. #olympics
11:37 PM - 27 Jul 12 via TweetDeck
I'm not sure where Tom Daley's tan ends and the gold epaulettes begin. #olympics

Well, better call it a night. I have a train to catch at 9am, and according to TFL's advice I should have left home an hour ago.

To be fair, NBC only cut out Emeli Sande 'cause American viewers would be confused by a Scottish person who's not ginger.
7:27 AM - 28 Jul 12 via trill
So I've seen the papers & apparently I wasn't hallucinating: The Olympics was Mary Poppins vs Voldemort.

I wonder if for the first time people will come to Stratford-upon-Avon thinking it's the one in E London, rather than the other way round.

Blimey, seat upgrade in the Swan, this REALLY hasn't sold well.

Not sure it matters if the play's any good or not. It's got John Stahl in a gold headdress saying "bollocks" #intervaltweets
2:29 PM - 28 Jul 12 via txt
Stahl's now casually wandering around Stratford in his own clothes with war paint still on his face. Officially amazing.

@Weez they've just parted temporarily to pursue solo projects. The beard's playing Lady Macduff in Chichester.

I've been more positive about the 'lympics lately and may continue to be so, so let's make one thing clear: The font is still an abortion.
