Ah Eurovision, you are beautiful, you are wonderful, you gave us ABBA and you gave us Lordi and you gave us those crazy Lativans who sang about being Wolves of the Sea. You are perfect, dear Eurovision.

Infact, dearest Eurovision love, you have managed to top yourself this year, because you gave Europe (and the world, aka me) this perfect manboy:

And for this, Eurovision, I thank you profusely. For bestowing this perfect Norwegian hottie violin dancey crazy man upon us to admire and love and adore and, well frankly, drool over for always and forever, I thank you.

Infact, this years Eurovision was pretty epic. But did anyone else notice the severve lack of comedy acts? Were they just swept under the rug in the semi finals this year? Because I did notice their absence and I did miss them so!

So I’m going to recap my favourite moments of Eurovision this year, rather than rant on about the perfection that is Alexander Rybak for the rest of the post! (But let it be known, he was my favourite moment ever.)

Ok, so I loved the opening act. I loved Mr Russian Hottie who won last years Eurovision Contest, I loved it when he was hoisted into the air, I loved his wardrobe malfunction (even if it wasn’t quite as epic as Janet Jackson’s all those years ago) and I loved how he pulled off those tight white pants and tight white (leather?) shirt and sang his winning song from 2008 and ran through those white wall things and broke them to represent his life.

I also really liked that he managed to get hot since the last time we saw him! I’m pretty sure I remember him being kinda average looking…

I just thought this lady was awesome. She was singing way too fast for me to even consider translating, although I got the title, something like “Why Must I/We…” It was awesome, she was awesome.

Portugal, with their bright, psychadelic swirls that would scare even Austin Powers were so cute and so happy and how could you not want to run up there and rip the shoes from that lady’s feet and put them on your own feet? HOW COULD YOU NOT?

Greece, with his giant hair straightener/tanning bed/stapler/bright shiney building blocks thing and his exposed stomach and the way he kept touching himself. He was there for all the ladies, and the men… and the lady-mans, too. Greece was greasy sex.

Russia’s entry this year was a little too deep and profound for Eurovision in my opinion, but man she did a better Sinead O’Conner than Sinead O’Conner! (and atleast she had hair, Sinead!) I liked the ageing effects they gave to giant screen Russian-singer-lady, on the giant screens. Profound, deep, pretentious, Russian.

Iceland’s entry was referred to as “three minutes of perfect pop” and I have to agree. She was cute, the song was cute, and everything about the set up was just plain cute! I really don’t have anything else to say on the topic…

I don’t remember what country this is, but I really just liked the green man with the bondage-style sequinned mask on.
And her tutu.
She looks like Nikki Webster.

Estonia was awesome, I want her dress, plskthnx.

Ah Germany, I don’t think you were even represented by a German man. He certainly didn’t sound German when he was interviewed by Julia-lady-from-Rockwiz. And she even accused him of not being able to speak German! I think I can safely conclude: this man is not German.
However, he did manage to pull off silver sequinned pants AND even get Dita Von Teese hot on stage! That takes skill… Bet he’s really Greek or some shit like that.

I don’t quite understand exactly what was intended by this Argentinian show, but it was a floating see-through pool-trampoline thing that I think I want to do… Excuse me whilst I move to Argentina to join the see-through pool-trampoline water circus.

Well, this years Eurovision was certainly epic… Even though I ended up fast forwarding through some songs because they were SO bloody boring or just too fucked up for my eyes. (Malta I’m looking at you here, and Armenia too!)

I liked that parody thing that crazy Russian lady tourist guide did with the “we don’t have bears, we don’t have dictators, we don’t have alcohol” and you could see them all in the background, that was pretty lol.

So that’s all for this tiny mini little small but still epic and a bit lame recap of Eurovision!

Yum…

British history is an interesting one, especially when taught by the monotone man, who is actually one of my favourite lecturers – no sarcasm at all.

Shout outs very quickly to my first two comments and also to Sam (who is sitting next to me) and Julia – who are both aging by a WHOLE year tomorow! (Twenty and eighteen respectively.)

Now, where were we? Ah yes, British history, the first world war to be exact. Not my favourite war – that’s the Russo-Japanese war of the early 1900s – but still a great war in itself.

Speaking of war – excuse me America, whatchu doing trying to boss Russia around? Sure they invaded Georgia (my sister in spirit, seeing as we came to exist almost at the same time) but hello! America! Who haven’t you gone to war against? Seriously. Get out of Iraq and then MAYBE Russia will listen to you. They don’t like hypocrites, even if they are hypocrites themselves. (As all countries are.)

Yeah, that’s all I’ve really got to say on that topic, besides: “GO GEORGIA!”, seeing as I must support my kindred.

Speaking of which, apparently Georgia and Russia are playing eachother later today in the Olympics volleyball, thrilling stuff. Should be a very interesting match – maybe that battle will prove a huge decider in the winner of the war? Maybe not. Either way, I’m going to try and catch it on tv.

So, with my (unofficial) namesake and her old mother land at war, I find myself torn between my Socialist beliefs (such of which once tried to exist in Russia) and my sisterland, wondering who has the right intentions. Only so much can be reported in the news.

I shall continue to watch this conflict closely, as should you, and hopefully the outcome is one that makes me smile. GO GEORGIA! (No, really.)

Gone.

p.s. please stop the fighting.

p.p.s. where in the world is kt?
