There's something about the autumn that finds me constantly tweeting along to the TV.
It probably looks like I’ve nothing better to do with my time, though in a way, it’s a time-saver, as it indirectly gives me a bit of a break from finding things to discuss here; I’ll often abandon my usual prose-based blogs, in favour of a summary of my Twitter ramblings on whichever show was on that night; it’s not my fault that University Challenge, Strictly Come Dancing and The Great British Bake Off all air at once.
Tonight’s Bake Off was a pastry-case in point. See below for what came to mind whilst watching this evening's show. At the risk of a spoiler, it was a shame to see Rav go. Did you also know that Bruce Willis was dead in Sixth Sense? When it comes to spoiling people’s fun, I’m the best.
8:02pm: I'll probably tweet along with
#GBBO for a bit; apologies to the uninterested.8:04pm: Just a few minutes in, and I miss Val's unique brand of confused insanity already.8:05pm: "This cake's systematic...(STING)...aromatic...(STING)..."8:06pm: "The bakers can use anything that grows"; INSERT EUPHEMISM HERE.8:08pm: Paul and Selasi wrestling.

No need.8:22pm: Only Selasi could look so manly in a floral t-shirt.8:25pm: Looking forward to someone making a slip-up saying "fougasse".8:29pm: Is Tom wearing that blue glove so they can CGI his right hand in later?8:31pm: Bake your fougasse at fougasse-mark two.8:32pm: Fougasse: because I like bread with a letterbox in it.8:35pm: Say what you like, but #GBBO has done wonders for the glockenspiel underscoring industry.8:37pm: Thanks to #GBBO, glockenspiel-playing session musicians are quids-in.8:39pm: To give myself a taste of this week's #GBBO, showstopper, I'm sucking on an old lady's bar of soap.8:45pm: To add to the poppy-seed theme, Benjamina should throw in a little Heroin.8:46pm: I wish someone would pipe my buttercream flowers.8:48pm: *Visions of Mary Berry post-hash-cake.*8:50pm: Top marks to Candice for the look of her four-tier cake8:52pm: It's shame Val's not still in this week: she was a fruitcake.8:54pm: Watching #GBBO, eating pot pourri.8:58pm: Not only does Selasi's showstopper look sensational, it also matches his outfit.
