I'm Getting A Semi

So, the Eurovision semi finals were a mixed bag. There was Chinese take-away, cupcakes (I made them and they kicked ass, pics to come sometime soon), cocktails and good cheer, and some snappy numbers - on the upside. I always thought I was the target demographic though, you know? As the snerky British co-host of the telecast said (about an email he received) ""We are 4 gay men getting together in Basingstoke to watch the show", like that's never happened before!" (Maybe he was referring to the Basingstoke bit?)

Anyhoo, I digress. My predictions/favourites were way off. Two of my top three got through, and a whole bunch of my lowest scoring acts did too. Oh, did I forget to mention we had score sheets? (The official Eurovision Semi-Finals Score Sheets actually. Yep, I am that person.)

So, tonight is the Finals and then we can all go back to regular programming. Don't you find my excitement just a little intoxicating though? No? I'm on a self imposed media blackout until tonight when we get the delayed telecast. So please, if you've read who wins already somewhere on Das Internetz don't spoiler, m'kay? Just because.

So, this evening I'm off to the lovely James O'Brien's house for the Finals. Judging by how poorly I went with the Semis I think my chances of taking home the prize James has on offer somewhat slim. Eh, a boy can try though, right?

The cupcakes were fabulous TOA. I could have eaten many more.

You didn't mention which ones were your top three.

I thought the 4 gay guys were in Portsmouth... but it was a cute comment.

Not that I would go out of my way to watch them but the only person here who had heard of it was Mike- Aussie.
The Yanks are woefully uneducated.....again.

Just watching the first few mins of the final -- I'm hoping the hunk-of- utterly-edible-Icelandic-male host (Mikko?) will make your report Andrew. I'll be disappointed if he doesn't. Woof!

Sunshine said...

Score sheets??!???!! LOL, you're so cute, Andrew. :D

Yeah I looked him up on the Eurovision site.

And on Wikipedia.

oh my god, there is no justice.

mind you, despite being incredibly crap, the Robot Zombies from Outer Space did have the best line with that classic, "Would you like something to suck on for landing?"

oh and ps - the Ukraine - how close were they, and how fabulous would it have been?

Edna Wilt said...

Am I the only one who thought the winning lesbian looked like a cross between Hiro from "Heroes" and the "Asian" character from "We Could Be Heroes"... Hmmmm... there's a whole hero theme there...

Jodie Sorrell said...

Is anyone else getting worried that we haven't heard from TOA since the Eurovision finals?

Maybe he's still recovering from the perfomance by the Ukraine.

yaniboy said...

I was thinking the same thing Jodie... Maybe he's fallen into a Post Eurovision Depression and is unable to leave his bed? :P

Michael Guy said...

I'm beginning to worry, Andrew.

Where you be?

Graeme said...

No update for 48 hours? what the hell are you doing Andrew? Living a life or something!!!

You have a demanding audience, you know. You're only as good as your last hit blog entry!
