Loz Cola

Sing me a song, do not forget the words...

I have to say, having spent some time thinking about it, I was disappointed with Eurovision this year for its lack of crack. I loved the Ukraine, Swedish and French entries for their entertainment factor, and found the UK to be cruelly satirical (as well as really terrible - although the dark haired flight attendant made me snort cola through my nose when he offered 'nuts'), but on the whole, there was less insanity and more relatively okay but not mind-shattering pop music. Is it just me or were several of the songs actually really decent?

Of course, it didn't help that I was here at my brother's house and not with my family -therefore unable to chat and giggle mindlessly as Terry Wogan prattled on in his own, special way. I did ring up after Sweden's entry, actually, saying something to the effect of, "oh my God, wouldn't that be great in the Swedish Life on Mars?" Contrary to popular belief, I haven't, actually, been making my way through the wine collection.

You can call your one and only...

There's apparently a very cool meme going around where we list 20 bits of our own personal canon for our fandoms. Some of these I believe very strongly in (in so far as I'm fully aware I made them up, but I love them too much to admit it), and some of them are more things I've giggled to myself about once or twice in personal fannish musings.
