The Eurovision song contest.

Bah. I've just put flapjacks into the oven. It'll be half an hour before they're ready to come out of the oven, and another half an hour before they've cooled enough to eat. I am impatient! - especially when it comes to food! So in an attempt to distract myself (and stop eating raw flapjack mix) I'll type up our thoughts from the Eurovision song contest on Saturday.

These are the combined thoughts of myself, Richard/wuzzie, Tim/meeping and Peter. They are incomplete because I only started writing the comments down when they got particularly amusing, and some of the earlier songs were completely unmemorable. The numbers refer to the order in which the countries went.

And the winners of the gay vote are:
22. Slovenia. Oh, they were wonderful! Three men dressed as air stewardesses accompanied by three people of unknown gender (one was definitely a woman) dressed as airline pilots. Camper than a field of tents. Eurovision is known for its gay audience, and these guys were perfect for it! It seems from the BBC site that they're a professional drag queen band, rather than a "normal" band who just happened to be in drag, which makes them even cooler! We thought they would definitely get the queer vote...

...until we saw 23. Latvia. The singer was an attractive woman who started off wearing a man's suit and trilby hat. As the song went on her backing singers pulled off her man's clothes to reveal a dress underneath. But even then she spent the song singing "I want to be the sunshine in your eyes" to one of the girl backing singers! Hot lesbian action! I commented "This woman is going to be starring at G.A.Y. for the rest of her life on this performance".

All in all, a smashing evening in with Eurovision.
