The weather held out so we barbecued. Lots of random people came. Tonnes of food. And the show was fantastic. I can't quite believe the budget Finland blew on the Lordi of the Rings intro and an interlude of... Apocalyptica! I really really want to go to Finland now. Top marks for pulling off a very fun show that was actually both refreshingly earnest and rather stylish. Imagine, if England ever get to host again, what complete crap we would attempt to put on inbetween kill-me-now interludes from Fern and Vernon! Jesus.
But yup, hooray for Finland and Eurovision. I was (once again) drinking for the winners, who this year appeared to be a slightly butch Hiro backed by a deranged troop of military models. Top marks also to the little turkish guy, the magician having his loving potion poured all over him... and The Ukraine. Who would have though that taking a cheap polka ring-tone and adding a buttock-slapping mirrorballed tranny with a star on her head could be the second most popular song in europe!
There was a bit of a sunday morning come down in the form of descovering someone had broken the upstairs toilet seat which I will have to replace at a cost of maybe 20-30 quid and a period of general bitchiness in the house, mostly concerning the fact that the russian girl is a spoilt little hypocrite! But anyway, still a fantastic weekend... thanks to everyone who came!
