Another talanted man who wears make up on occasion, Eddie Izzard. When I wrote my political science thesis at university I was really stressed out during the final weeks. All I did was type, read and sleep.
I did a lot more typing than sleeping and often woke up at three in the morning to scribble a few words on a notepad before going back to sleep. One of those scribbles turned out to be my conclusion, it's scary how my brain sometimes continues to work on problems after the rest of me has gone to sleep.
The one thing that helped me to unwind during these crazy weeks was Eddie Izzards dvd "Dressed to Kill".
If you ever hear me tell a really clever joke, I've probably stolen it from the one and only action transvestite.
