My review of Lucy didn’t contain my link to my tweetnotes on Under The Skin, so I’m embedding them here:


  • Oh good, a morning shitstorm. And me without my sou'wester. #
  • Lunch with @sillypunk was a pleasant diversion from an otherwise painful day. Now, back to the pain. #
  • I'm out to celebrate my promotion. I'm drinking because they're making me earn it. #

  • So hungry! So much to do this morning! So unlikely to do anything other than eat food and drink coffee! #
  • Okay, I've done everything I need to. Time to make myself look presentable and turn up early to the pub. #
  • Either a gigantic Rottweiler on the train is playing 'peek-a-boo' with me or I shouldn't have licked that toad. #
  • The lack of a functioning Jubilee line is keeping me from my much-deserved beer and bacon roll. Curse you, Boris! #
  • The DLR without cosplayers feels a bit mundane. But you never heard me say it. #
  • RT @big_ben_clock: BONG #
  • Mission Accomplished! @magpiemoth has invaded Tie Rack. #

  • There was no coffee! Slowly slipping into coma… Only emergency espresso can revive me now! #
  • Decided to be nice and gave the Austrian harridan a birthday card. There's so much blushing and gushing that I'm actually embarrassed. #
  • It's been confirmed, tomorrow my "boss" will come in to have a "chat" about my "salary". #
  • Oh good, I'm a 'Retweet Beta User'. How very pointless. #
  • Na zdorovye, Stolichnaya. #

  • RT @parisreview: The author, Dan Brown, is a character from "Foucault’s Pendulum" -Umberto Eco http://bit.ly/BtLZT #
  • RT @DRUNKHULK: YOU BE DRUNK ALL TIME LIKE DRUNK HULK IF YOU HAD SAD PIANO MUSIC PLAY EVERY TIME YOU WALK DOWN STREET! #
  • I'm off home, who wants to make me dinner? Maybe inject vodka into my brain? Kill my zombie-like self with a cricket bat? #

  • Woo! Most of my colleagues are off sick today. I declare it 'Loud Music Monday'! #
  • Finally got round to reading the anthology 'Half-Minute Horrors'. An excellent selection of stories that get to the point in around 30 secs. #
