Here we are! It’s Saturday, it’s mid-May, we’re wearing glitter, it can only mean one thing – it’s the final of this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. By now you may well know the result, but please feel free to play along with the fun. For fun is what we shall have, as we traipse one last time to Kiev, the capital of Ukraine.

I’m in the pub, there are approximately 30 drunk Eurofans behind me (of course I got there early to get the best seat!), and as usual, we will have 26 acts for our delectation, as well as one or two, shall we say, less expected moments…

How Was Your Weekend?

Mine was nice, considering that I didn’t feel well. On Saturday I rested and binged season 2 of Master Of None (recommended), and then on Sunday I had enough energy to clean my disgusting hellhole of an apartment.

It’s Friday! Let’s Dance!

What are you doing this weekend? I still feel sick, so I’ll be resting and pretending I don’t need to do laundry.
