Defining Loz

Eurovision is on right now. We're taping it to watch after Foyle's War.

It's one of those things... one of those many "I'm from England, so there!" things. I just adore taking the piss out of Eurovision contestants, and reminiscing on taking the piss out of so many Eurovisions before.

It's like my complex about my accent, or my absolute insistence that anyone who comes into contact with me has to know that whilst I live in Australia, I'm actually English. And believe me, I've discovered it's quite pronounced. In fact, you probably already know it, don't you?

Don't think it's because I dislike Australians (for the most part - I quite obviously don't) or dislike the Australian "culture" (although I think it is very difficult to define one), try to think it's just about defining who I am, about acknowledging my heritage. Truth is, though... I've learnt more about Britain living here, than I ever did living there.

This year I've officially been in Australia longer than I lived in Britain... November 23 marks the day. Strangely I see this as a big thing. I want to be in Britain shortly after that (never going to happen this year, I can tell - maybe the year after).

Meh. This exact same conversation occurred last year.
