RT @neverwear: only ONE MORE day to get @neilhimself HOW TO TALK TO GIRLS AT PARTIES print here:
Here are all the National Doodle Day Doodles: affordable art. Or at least doodles.
@__Nevermore__ that's hilarious. Good luck with your #thesis
@Paul_Cornell exactly six years ago today, Father's Day was broadcast. Um.
A photo from 372 days ago. I had a beard, Dick Curtis was editing VINCENT & @steven_moffat was young & unspoiled
@Paul_Cornell Yes. Later today I strap my pads & celery on and I will walk nervously onto the pitch.
@mishakaz Keep writing. Fix it when it's done.
@Paul_Cornell Mm. Even new fit & healthy me will be Bad at Games. Put me in at the end.
@NoFuckingArrest Sure. Hello. (Waves.)
Weather for today: scattered showers across the UK. Perhaps the Rain Gods will send them around 6.00pm, so people stay in &watch the telly.
@Paul_Cornell I'm not sure. I should, shouldn't I?
@NoFuckingArrest I love FLIP. But Do not think I will be able to come in 2011.
@rclarkie We'll do it somewhere else. Or something like it. Or something.
@Bonebabe It has a few scary moments. Should be fine as long as as a parent is there. And a lap.
@steven_moffat It'll rain later. Do not worry. We offended the Rain Gods, after all.
@Paul_Cornell I was planning to pace, nervously, alone. Possibly offering strangers cigars.
@Peter_L_Jones Nope. But at 6:30...
@raliel thanks Robin!
@stevefuller Yes. But we need the rain to start earlier, so everyone gets settled indoors.
@steven_moffat We offended them in Cardiff and it rained for 2 weeks, didn't it? It'll work. Trust me.
@mrseance @steven_moffat sigh...
@mrseance @steven_moffat It's such a good thing that the Times keeps itself locked away behind its firewall, then.
RT @steven_moffat: To enjoy @neilhimself's wonderful Dr Who tonight, stay away from The Times. Explains the entire plot while claiming n ...
Right. I'm going to bed now. Tomorrow I think I'll stay off computers and suchlike, for my peace of mind. Hope you all enjoy the Doctor Who.
RT @hodgman: @neilhimself I cannot wait for tonight
@filmboyslim @steven_moffat Watch Dr Who Confidential. It's brilliant, this week.
Wow. So many tweets from today. About 20,000 of them (!) Thank you all. You can ask me DW questions at (Guardian blog)
Also, over on under videos, I'm interviewed about a couple of scenes that didn't make it into the episode...
@RantzHoseley Oh good. #CurseNouNeil
@NSlayton Nope. Never heard any of the Big Finish productions, although I hear some of them are really good. #DoctorWho

I loved this blog by Adam Rex: An Open Letter to Everyone Who Thinks it Must Be Easy, Writing Kid's Books.
@MrTeller Yes. But you can stretch out all the way in YOUR seat-bed...
Adam Rex, who wrote the blog I linked to, is a great writer & amazing artist who has just joined twitter as @MrAdamRex. Make him welcome.
@fairuza Bad phone. Also, I zoomed through LA but didn't see you. Next time. Food and stuff.
@katespeak the only bluefin tuna I could see them selling was farmed, from Australian bluefin tuna farms.
You remember I was talking about my excitement about how many amazing readers of audiobooks are out there? Check out
And if you're an author, an agent, an actor or an audio producer/engineer, you should go and look at Big plug from me.
(By readers of audiobooks, I mean people who read them aloud for other people to listen to. Not listeners. Narrators.)
@idwatchyoudie One reads an audiobook in front of a microphone, for several days, usually.
The National Doodle Day Doodles are up on eBay
Over on the BBC Doctor Who site, for my episode, you'll find previews, clips, and now a downloadable Ood mask.
@LiamRudden thank you! But @neilgaiman is a sort of empty account.
@TeeManX good. It feels good.
@bindiyayagnik He might be frightened or bored. I was three when I saw my first episodes of Dr Who, and loved being frightened and thrilled.
@denofgeek Will try and find the time.
@LiamRudden Thank you! I was just thrilled & lucky they let me play with their toys, & that they did such a wonderful job with the script.
@Design_Assassin I'd wait for the real thing. The less you know the first time, the better.
@drwhoonline watching the Zarbi and the Menoptera at my grandparents' house in Southsea. I was 4.
@davegibbons90 If the bar gets BBC 3, the Dr Who Confidential that follows is a cracker. Really one for the fans.
@thatswedishgirl @budgie Is that the same roller derby that @hollyherself is jeerleading at?
@Paul_Cornell I hope you like it. More than anyone, I hope you like it. You were so instrumental in it having happened.
Perhaps there's still someone who doesn't know that my episode of Dr Who goes out in the US & UK on Saturday. But I ...
@LeeAHarris Just expect it to be sort of average.
@ConfinedWriter The Police boxes were painted concrete, I believe.
@hayleycampbelly You moved house while I wasn't looking. I missed the Van saga too. #badTwitterFollower

@somemrsreynolds Thank you. 'M a Very Important Marshwiggle.
@bromley001 It really is.
@amandapalmer Have a wonderful holiday, lesbian/bi wife of the day. Stretch hard. I love you. Goodnight.
Just realised that my computer is still on LA time, and it's actually two hours later than I thought it was. Goodnight world. #timefail
@MikeLuoma Do they have someone you can talk to? It's not a trademark infringement. You ought to be able to point this out.
@MeowTopia LOVE. I hope you like it!
@goodlucklando and Ireland too. You didn't mention Ireland.
@stericketts do not think. Just be.
@GyozaMan no, and no...

The people at the next table got an apology from the chef and free desserts. I chew a dry but oily stirfry and am English & stoic & grumpy.
@grantimahara it's the wisest course of action. (Did you see the photo of @amandapalmer in the t shirt?)
@finnporter no.
@Mark_Sheppard doomed by englishness!
@gralinnaea it's my own fault. Must remember how bad this restaurant is for next time.

@CultBoxTV Er. That's a bit spoilery.
@TonyNoland @Dannigrrl5 I wouldn't have minded. I liked the flash.
I learned Douglas Adams had died being interviewed by @MolaramLives who was in Tokyo and had seen the news. It shook me & still shakes me.
@amandapalmer I love you with all my heart, jailed wife. And would have smuggled you in a file in a cake.

@ryanvanasse Why? It's not a public speaking fee.
Apparently the WITS why-is-this-a story? will be in the @Startribune tomorrow. Hope it mentions

@paparatti @mormolyke She was really high rated by me and the other judges.
@Blackfish Nothing. It's brilliant, which was why we didn't want to redo it for the new text. So the new one is Full Cast, expanded text.
