This week on my Twitter feed
, my usual Sunday night grumbling about The X Factor
gets livened up with some grumbling about the Evening Standard Theatre Awards.
It's definiely a "wish I could hibernate" day.

"It's acting." "No it's not." Never a truer word... #LOLTointon #thehour

Oh train times board, would making ANY SENSE kill you?

@3rdspearcarrier my train just went 10 mins late -> arrived -> 15 mins late (Waterloo East.)

@3rdspearcarrier @Weez I'm now at Lon Bridge, where my train is due to arrive at the same time as it reaches W East.

"Adele's music voted most popular to fall asleep to." Funny way of phrasing "most likely to send you to sleep."

@OughtToBeClowns Play titles are always getting songs stuck in my head. Double Feature last year got me into a whole Rocky Horror loop.

I see YouTube hits continue to be the ultimate measure of success #xfactor

So, Random George isn't in Union J for his singing or his charisma. It really is 100% because of his hair, isn't it? #xfactor

"Who takes ABBA to church?" ABBA *is* my church, pickle. #xfactor

"If I got through to the semis I would LITERALLY die." Careful Rylan, Barlow will hold you to that. #xfactor

Twitter's gone very quiet. I'm worried Bruno Mars might have finally caused the entire nation to lose the will to live. #xfactor

Buy some clothes that fit, Olly FUCKING Murs! #adsofthexfactor

"Ryland." Three months in and she still doesn't know his name. It's Wagner all over again. #xfactor

Tom Wells not winning Most Promising Playwright = the entire Evening Standard awards are now invalid.

I mean, Red Velvet's great, but it took Lolita Chakrabarti 20 years to write, so I'm not going to hold my breath for the follow-up.

@Weez Hytner just won Best Director for Timon, I don't think anyone voting in any category has seen any theatre, ever.

To conclude, this year's ES Theatre Awards were entirely decided by chucking darts at some names.

Five Star's "Rain or Shine" just played in the bar at Hampstead Theatre. Now it's "Footloose." Someone's clearly dug up a Now album.
7:34 PM - 26 Nov 12
I'm sure that usher keeps doing a little dance to "Footloose," but I can never quite catch him doing it.

An audience member had to be told to take his coat off the hook ON THE SET he'd left it on #intervaltweets

The ushers are practicing their audition pieces. As actors go, they make great ushers.
