Celebrity Twitterwatch: Bird Brain Edition

Maybe the owl will chase you off.

Here at Twitterwatch, we use the 140 characters of Twitter
to plumb the minds and souls of our favorite celebrities. And it turns out that
some of them have birds other than the little blue bird of Twitter on their

The closest I’ll get to cuddling up to the hunk of my high school years.

New Kid on the Block Jonathan Knight looks exhausted. And I
know how he feels. This summer I had an owl move into the oak tree outside my
bedroom, and he was more reliable than a rooster for a 5:30 AM wakeup call. So
I wish him good luck with chasing him down, because if he’s like mine, or the
one at the top of the page, maybe he should just move.

Hope you all had a great Saturday! I have an owl to chase from a tree then off to bed!less than a minute ago via ÜberTwitter

Though one has to wonder if boy bands develop an unnatural
aversion to birds for some reason. Westlife’s
Mark Feehily seems to have an issue
with pigeons. But if he’s in Tesco, maybe it’s Tesco that has the issue.
Shouldn’t the pigeons be outside as opposed to attacking patrons?

A pigeon just flew past my nose in Tesco.I have a big phobia of bird and flapping wings! I scream u scream we all scream for ice-cream =Oless than a minute ago via Echofon


It may not be a screech owl keeping Caprica’s Jane Espenson
up at night, but she’s keeping the same hours as an owl thanks to jet lag. But
the good news is she’s found a way to make the best of a bad situation.

Gotta say, I’m loving this jet lag! I’m getting so much done in the hours between 3 and 9 AM!less than a minute ago via web


Maybe she can play Monopoly
with Aussie comic Josh Thomas. He’s
up late, and feeling all alone. He wants companionship, but I think he’s so
adorable he shouldn’t have to resort to paying for it, even in the dead of
night. Jane, meet Josh. You two can play online.

Maybe I will get a prostitute and make them play monopoly with me. I do like playing monopoly.less than a minute ago via web


But among the things he doesn’t like, Broadway’s Gavin Creel doesn’t list birds, jet
lag, or being lonely. Frankly, he’s got a list of irritants that could fit just
about anybody. Who knew gays were just normal people?

THINGS I DON’T LIKE: atm fees, rotten avocados, whining wally, gloom, crap customer service, my impatience, & headaches.less than a minute ago via web


Next page: Bullied gay teens.

Fashion forward choices, yet he makes them work.

I’m going to have to buy a Jane’s Addiction album or something to support Dave Navarro. Not only did he pen that touching open letter to GLBT
youth from Thursday’s Meme, before that, he made sure to validate the value of
their lives via his Twitter account. Musicians seem to be able to turn their
flair for lyrics into eloquent tweets.

Alec Mapa took
time to tell teens to that life isn’t high school, and they won’t be held
hostage in a hostile environment forever. One thing I really like about Mapa is
that he thinks before he tweets – if you follow him, you know he’s added
#BoycottTarget to everything for months now, silly or serious. But here, he
knew it wasn’t about that. Little things matter, and I noticed, Alec.

Gay teens being bullied- chin up. Outside the shithole that is High School is a world of acceptance and love. Trust me on this one.less than a minute ago via Echofon


Blake Skjellerup
is back from visiting his family in New Zealand. And he’s got a point so great
here I’ll overlook the fact that I think he’s secretly got Bieber Fever: If Justin Bieber can be expected to calm
riots and call off death threats against women he’s photographed in the basic
vicinity of, can’t he use that awesome power to teach teens, people who are his
peers, not to bully other kids?

Seriously! Frankie Jonas & Maple Syrup is trending! Yo @justinbieber why not stand up for school bullying. Use your “power” to do some good!less than a minute ago via web


At the completely other end of the spectrum from all these
kids being bullied by other kids, and judged by their parents is the son of Eddie McClintock. This isn’t the first
time that Eddie’s tweeted about his wife saying things to his son he never
expected to hear, and he expresses surprise, but never any judgment. He’s a
great dad.

While not specifically about gay kids, I think what Sarah Silverman is saying here applies.
Because we’ve got to save them.

Next page: Clothes make the man

His nipples are a national treasure and must be protected.

Brett Claywell is
training to run the NYC marathon to raise money for HIV prevention and
awareness in Africa. But he’s discovering there’s a reason they make special
running shirts that are non-abrasive, especially for guys whose nipples are as
perky as Brett’s.

Note to self: When running distances further than God intended, put bandaids over thy nipples.less than a minute ago via txt


Would someone please teach rugby hunk Gareth Thomas how to TwitPic with his phone? Because after he sent
this out he said he didn’t know how, and I’d really like to see the big burly
guy in his slippers at the supermarket. It would make me feel better about the
old man slippers I’m wearing right now.

Just been to Sainsburys to get a chicken.Everyone was staring at me and giggling.Then i realised i had my fathers mr. grumpy slippers on.:)less than a minute ago via web


Speaking of shoes, Roger
has this to say about shoes and fall, and it makes me smile at the
thought. Then I remember that I have to rake all those leaves, and fly into a
rage. But the brief smile was nice.

There’s sweet nostalgia to be had in scuffling through autumn leaves in your Hush Puppies.less than a minute ago via web


Somehow, I have trouble picturing Caprica’s Sasha Roiz
wearing anything except his 1940s inspired gangster wear, or nothing but his
tattoos as he moves in to kill someone. But now that he’s guest
starring on House, I guess I’ll have to get used to seeing him in pink.
Hopefully without pizza stains. I hope he’s got the legs for this look.

It’s probably a good thing that Britney Spears took the time to offer commentary during the Glee episode dedicated to her, since
that provided more more material to string together a plot than anything in the actual script. But
really, I wish people would stop endorsing the bow tie because it takes me two
hours to tie one, and I don’t want it to come back in style.

I like Kurt’s bow tie. Bow ties are sexy…less than a minute ago via web


One advantage of clothes is that you can hide who you are by
wearing something out of character. But how Johnny Wier can hide his identity on a flight, I have no idea. Does
he wear flannel?

Landed in LA! I love pretending to be someone else to your neighbor on the plane! Acting practice! Today I was Vanya, the fashion worker!less than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®


Next Page: Entertaining the entertainers.

Stick to acting, because you’d never make it as a sketch artist.

Eureka’s Neil Grayston doesn’t strike me as
someone who is difficult to amuse. I stay amused just reading what he’s eating,
even pickles flavored with Kool-Aid. He’s sort of the exception to the rule
that reading about people having lunch on Twitter is stupid and boring.

Screw flying cars… cheeseburger flavored Doritos actually taste like cheeseburgers. The future is now. And it is terrifying.less than a minute ago via web


But his Vancouver buddy David
seems to always be stumbling into something amusing when he’s out and
about. But this has to take the cake. I’m just upset he didn’t get video of Adam Lambert’s oldest fan.

In torrential Vancouver downpour, 70-year-old woman just sped by on a moped blasting @adamlambert & dancing. Good lesson there…less than a minute ago via Echofon


Chris Colfer is
obviously providing his own entertainment somewhere, and he’s in desperate need
of a disco ball. But I’m a little confused, shouldn’t that have been in his
coming out welcome basket? Did we have a shortage?

Does anyone know where I can get a disco ball? Please, no questions or judgments.less than a minute ago via ÜberTwitter


I bet Bryan Safi
has a couple disco balls, being the self-proclaimed gayest person on the
planet. I bet he’s even got a portable version he takes with him to events at
the Hollywood Bowl, just in case they’re not gay enough on their own.

At the Hwood Bowl Sound of Music singalong. Sponsored by gay.com. The only way this could be gayer is if Pastor Eddie Long was here.less than a minute ago via TweetDeck


Jesse Tyler Ferguson
blows the whistle on all those celebrities that swear they never watch
themselves. He even re-watches his Oprah appearances while he exercising. At night
he probably alternates between The Class
and unaired episodes of Do Not

Remember that day I got 2 watch myself on @oprah while on the treadmill @ the gym. Basically I wanted u to know I was on Oprah & I work out.less than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone


But let’s face it, one place we absolutely have to provide
our own entertainment is when we’re sleeping. And Trevor Donovan has mad skills for his dreams – he’s even mastered
special effects! I wonder if he can still manage it after a
champagne blackout

I don’t know Kung Fu…….but when I’m asleep I can run in slow motion. #TiredNonsenseless than a minute ago via ÜberTwitter

Matthew Mitcham
is just adorable, and cheerful, and just so inspiring. But I’m not sure I want
to share a road with him. It’s one thing for me to drive like this, but if both
of us did it we might end up hurting someone.

I don’t understand the sign saying “RIGHT LANE CLOSED, SLOW DOWN”… if we’re down a lane, then everyone should speed up to compensate.less than a minute ago via Echofon


Joan Rivers wants
a gay sugar daddy. But at her age, I’m not sure anyone who qualifies to be her
daddy is still alive.

I want to marry a rich, gay guy. To be able to go out with someone and dish the dirt and then have him pick up the check? Heaven!!!less than a minute ago via web


Nate Silver is a
smart man, and since election season is approaching again, he’s a very popular
man. But he also encourages critical thinking, which is something that is in
particularly short supply during election season.

Beware when the lazy invoke Occam’s Razor.less than a minute ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®


And finally, Jimmy
has figured out how to make Sarah
president. You just have to wait for President Obama to succeed in extending the school year, then wait
for those children affected are old enough to vote, because they will not
forgive the party that took away summer breaks.

President Obama said he supports having a longer school year. In response, Sasha and Malia announced they support Sarah Palin. #FallonMonoless than a minute ago via web


That’s it folks! We’ll be back with fresh tweets for you
from the celebrities you love, and that you love to hate next week.

Opinionated. You'll love to hate me
