Love it or loathe it, social networking site Twitter is now a
ubiquitous part of our…. ah whatever, you get the gist.
Anyway, we've been scanning the radio waves, or whatever it is
that Twitter thrives on, and have gleaned the following info on
stars as diverse as MarNav, JenBea(ls) and SuePer. So get in,
buckle up and throw your critical faculties out the passenger side
window, because it's going to be a (mostly) trivial ride.
First up, DIVA (and just general) favourite Sue
Perkins let slip that she spent at least a moment of
Christmas Eve among some of the finest Whopper burgers the West
Country has to offer.
@sueperkins Overheard last night at
Exeter Services Burger King: 'do you sell gift vouchers?' It's the
thought that counts. Happy Christmas one & all x
Of course Sue is quite right. It is the thought that counts.
Although of course that's not true at all, unless the thought is
about a massive great diamond or a Ferrari with sheepskin interior
and a wicked sound system. Those thoughts probably count for a lot
and have a pretty high resale value.
In other news, tennis legend Martina
Navratilova (MarNav Trivia: her Twitter pic is a shot from
a covershoot our regular photographers Lezli + Rose did for DIVA a
couple of years back) tends to RT a lot of links to articles on
political topics, but had this to say about US secretary of state
Hilary Clinton's recent health problems.
@Martina I think all those dickheads who
belittled Hilary owe her a huge apology...faking it my a.., she
could have died,bloody hell...
Love how outspoken Martina is. And am hugely impressed by Hilary
Clinton too, just generally. Hope she recovers quickly.
Since we are speaking of people I/we love, author
Jeanette Winterson (if you haven't read her
Written on the Body before, you really must read it - brilliant,
brilliant book) offered a seasonal recipe to her followers earlier
@Wintersonworld Sneeze? Melt honey in dash of
hotwater. Chop a chilli in the mix. Pour in a good slug of Scotch.
Serve on ice with a whole chilli 2 stir.
I am genuinely going to try it next time I get a cold, which if
the last few months are anything to go by will be in about 20
Speaking of illnesses and seamless segues, gorgeous actress
Megan Fox was "killed" by Twitter just the other
day, in the sense that the phrase 'RIP Megan Fox' was trending for
a while. Not cool, Twitter, not cool at all. Megan seems to be
alive and well, thankfully, tweeting the following a mere hour
And finally, The L Word's Bette aka Jennifer
Beals (who highly recommends the film Life of Pi, btw) had
this to say as a new year dawned:
@jenniferbeals 2013 Welcome the mystery. Open
your heart to happiness. Love, always Love.
Which, all joking aside, is really rather lovely and a nice note
to end on. Watch out for another selection of celeb tweets next
week, and feel free to tweet us, should the mood grab you.
