Posts about "Eurovision Song Contest"
Frankly something now has to be done, because for my mind, if you're going to enter a song contest, you've got to have a chance of winning. And no one in the west now has a chance of winning. I've denied it in the past, but the evidence is now damming.
Whilst sitting down to a nice, homemade green Thai curry last night, we happened to catch the second half of "Eurovision: Your Decision" last night which meant I got to see a strange woman in a corset and an extremely short skirt, Michelle Gayle and Andy Abraham battle it out in front of Terry Wogan sat on a throne in a programme format which was clearly designed to try and stop the UK public from voting for some diabolical crap again.
Have to confess that I didn't watch Eurovision - Catherine and myself were being more cultured and seeing the fantastic Waterson Family live at the Royal Albert Hall - but I came home to find we'd not only lost Eurovision, but we'd spectacularly come in joint second-to-last.
I didn't watch Making Your Mind up last night but caught a bit of the rather shambolic results programme (spectacularly they announced one person to be the winner, only to five seconds later decide they got it wrong).
So what to do when you're off work with a dodgy stomach? Well there was only one option. Find out just why it's the "The Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia". Well it's the kind of lightweight, fluffy task that my brain can cope with on such a day.
It's Eurovision! For some reason...
