Oh wow the Eurovision Song Contest last night was so much fun!
This annual political summit, craftily masked as a fantastic show of European culture(?), and commented on in the UK by the increasingly unimpressed Terry Wogan cannot be missed in my book. We got together enough people to pick countries out of a hat to cheer them on to victory or otherwise. My draw, Russia, did not do particularly well. But just over the border, Ukraine's shiny space-age gender-unsure Verka Serdyuchka shone, only to be beaten into second place by a lesbian group from Serbia. Brilliant, but Ukraine was robbed.
If you missed it, you really really have to check out the Ukrainian entry, video available in full here thanks to the wonders of the internet.
Terry's commentary usually holds as much intrigue as the show itself, and last night was no exception. When faced with describing the dominance of the Eastern European countries and the pathetic showing by those in the West, his only real comment was "I know, why don't we build a wall?" What a guy.
