It's Eurovision!

I am blogging briefly tonight. Husband has 'The Eurovision Song Contest' on in the background! What is he doing watching that?!! All I can hear is ''What is she wearing?'' Several times. Then.....


'He's wearing a lampshade!' He giggles 'And why do they all sing in English?'

'Because everyone can understand it' I chirp in, though he isn't really expecting or requiring a response!

'Can you understand that then?' He asks. I have to admit he has a point.

'Oh, here come a lot of lunatics!' And so he goes on, commenting at will. He's almost better than Terry Wogan.


'Funny how they are all blond isn't it?' (This was the entry from Norway!!)

'Not really' I reply.

He is quiet for a while. Then he starts grumbling because the beginning of the text on the screen is missing. 'Problem is because you can't see the beginning few letters of the country on the screen, lots of them come from ...land'

'Does it matter?' I say but he's lost in Eurovision world!

'She looks mad as well' He goes on.

'She's lost her noo noo, and she's got big legs' (a sin obviously)

'What do you mean noo noo?' I ask, because this one needs some clarification.

'She's singing Noo, noo, noo, noo, noo!' He chants.

'Oh'

'Look, this one's brought his dad with him!' He carries on. 'And Alf Garnets playing in the background!

Actually it did look a lot like Alf! Here he goes again....

'This is the ugly woman, every Christmas pantomime will want them for years won't they?!'

He can be so cutting!

'The woman in pink was good though'

Well thank goodness someone passed muster.

He's run out of steam now and has gone quiet! When I was little my mum used to let me stay up late and watch the whole thing, which goes on for hours! It was always such a treat then, although my most memorable Eurovision, when I was young, was the one I spent vomiting into a bucket!! One could argue now that it was enough to make anyone vomit, but I did love all the songs then.

They've started voting now. Husband has just anounced he can't stand the tension so is off to bed! Well that's all folks!!

I've just watched Eurovison - the first time for years! Gave me a good laugh, my son looked up now and again and said 'WHAT are they doing?' I wasn't very impressed with any of it and cannot really recall any of the songs now.

Well, I must admit I'm at a loss here--what is Eurovision?
Your Saturday evenings sound about as exciting as mine! Though my son and daughter-in-law took us out to dinner at a German restaurant tonight. At the end of the meal we ordered a few different desserts to share, but 5-year-old granddaughter claimed the "Death by Chocolate" for herself. This is the best part of being a grandmother. I won't have to stay up all night with her while she is hyper from caffeine!

This sounds like a Small Sprog post! Are you sure this was Husband and not Small Sprog? I suppose the acorn does not fall too far from the Oak tree.

I gave Eurovision Song Contest a miss this year as it is all so rigged up as regards the voting!
Just about to go away, but I have done the tag you sent me( & you have probably forgotten all about it!)
We will be exchanging one wet place in England for another by the looks of it! Hope you have good weather for your holiday!

I didn't watch a single minute of it this year ... most unlike me. Who won? As long as it was completely camp and outrageous, I'm happy - that's what Eurovision is all about isn't it? x

My favourite piece of Eurovision trivia is that Iraq TV also shows it - except when Israel comes on. For that bit they just show a vase of flowers and no soundtrack!

LOL that was a funny running commentary!

this is my patch said...

I did watch the Eurovision many moons again before multi-channels. Although nowadays it seems a farce, albeit a very comical one! I think it is a disgrace the poor old singing dustman came in last, I thought it was quite a catchy track and better than some of our more recent ones? If Terry Wogan decides to quit, your husband can take over with the commentary! x

Your husband sounds a real laugh, I am still giggling at his dog impressions when the computer man came round. I love it when men are cuttingly funny and say things like, "she shouldn't wear green."
