Yes, I admit, I was sort of following what went on in Belgrade last night. Eurovision saw its first final night and while translating I just let TV be my backround music. And when I heard something really odd or strange (and there was quite a shitload of that) I turned around to see the...... performer of the moment. And I was curious how badly Slovene (girl-pretending to be boy-pretending to be a girl lookalike) entry is going to be.
And in the confusion of big teeth, big boobies, bad music, really bad music and "music", terrible costumes, some really odd travesty I did find a song I liked. It's a Belgian song, funny stuff decently sung in a made up language. At least some brain was involved there, at least some humour and at least something that somehow remotely resembles European (folk) flair in music.

Luckily, our Becky Dee (or something) flopped so I am officially released from an obligation of dedicating another second to Eurosong 2008.

And here's my favourite: Ishtar and "O julissi na jalini". :)

Re: Once again, a very happy Birthday !
Hey, DD! :)

Yes, I really enjoyed listening to you two singing to me! Yes, and good time was had, as much as an old man like me can take it. Yes. Yes.

Eurovision - I completely skipped it after the first semi night. And I am happy about it. Euro.... borders are falling, right?

And HUGS and KISSES from SUNNY and WARM Ljubljana. So, now you have it! :)
