  • The latter of which has spectacular words. "The yearning of thy bowels towards me – are they restrained?" #
  • For no good reason, have been watching the charts. Now understand why Lady Gaga is so big. Everything else is terrible! #
  • Ooh. Fire alarm at St Paul's. We've all been evacuated. Helpful Stewards standing in corridors to point towards the exits. #
  • Alarm over, no flames spotted. #
