Pavlov’s Cat Results:
Day 1: Rang bell- cat fucked off.
Day 2: Rang bell - cat went and answered door.
Day 3: Rang bell - cat said he’d eaten earlier.
Day 4: Went to ring bell on day 4 but cat had stolen batteries.
Final day - day 5: Went to ring bell with new batteries, but cat put his paw on bell - so it only made a thunk noise. Then cat rang his own bell. I ate food.

I noticed something which only a person reading a whole load of Eddie Izzard interviews in one go would ever notice: journalists always talk about his body. Is he fat or thin? Sorry, “heavy” or “sculpted”? Is he wearing men’s clothes or women’s, are they nice or scruffy?
He comes in for the kind of pretend-neutral, old-fashioned, nostrils-flared appraisal that women get and men almost never do. It’s almost as if being a transvestite has unleashed the forces of sexism against him. I met him at the offices of his production company, in London, where he’s promoting the DVD release of Believe, a film about the story of his life. He looks great, by the way, but let’s leave it at that.

First there was boy-mode, then I established girl-mode; now I’m back in boy-mode because I’m auditioning for more acting roles. Somebody on Twitter recently said: “You can’t do that, you’re a transvestite person.” But I can. It’s my life. And I will. I can go “flame on” and “flame off”, like a superhero covering himself in fire, then making it disappear.
