All of the Eurovision Song Contest videos can still be seen on this radio 2 website. I liked the Latvian one best I think, probably for the nice puppet thing and the boy's heart flying out of his jacket. Very clever. I think France would probably have been quite a pretty song too without the lady's bad singing. I did enjoy Finland though and their day of rockoning. My mate in Sweden tells me their commentators were very upset their fundamentalist Christian Carola didn't win but did offer some grudging support for their neighbours (In unrelated news he also said he went to a wedding and hung out with Joe Mangle off Neighbours!!!!!!!!!!!!!, !!!!!!!!!!!) Luke's full Eurovision review is on the way...

GOLEO VIGOLEO VII also found the world cup website has a Predictor Game, a handy spreadsheet that lets you fill in all the scores and the route to the final, if you like that kind of thing. There was also this picture of GOLEO VI, the mascot, which scares me a little bit.

Sadly, the digibox I got refused to work with the weird aerial in our flat, so not only no E4 for me but also no chance to watch semi-final of Eurovision. The Finnish rockers made it through but the Icelandic lady didn't, how rubbish! Latvia were already through without the semi-final but sadly my other favourite Estonia wont be in the final. There's a Eurovision song contest score card to print off if you want a nice table to watch with tomorrow.

Latvia's entry from 2000 Brainstorm, who did the lovely my star and with the singer who hosted Eurovision, are playing in London and Brighton this week. There's also a link on their website so you can book them to play.

Neil Hannon, not off the fancy phone I inherited off my sisterI went to see the Divine Comedy last night at the Junction which was super. He's so little and lovely. It was the first night of the UK tour I believe. I liked the new songs (although some of them could have been old ones). The new single is here and was quite bouncy. I liked the one about a lady of a certain age too. There were lots of people on stage, some xylophones (or glockenspiels?) and a violin and cello and all sorts, some of it sounded a bit squeaky though. I enjoyed it and there was some bouncing about, although with it being a school night not that much jumping by me and it was an hours walk home.

There's a little greeting from Mr Hannon at this site where you can enter a competition I think, but its worth a look for the nice hello.

Its very nearly time for Eurovision!!! Horay! Worryingly the excellent Icelandic entry from Slivia Night has to go into the semi-final and might not make it into Saturday's show. There'll be 23 countries in the semi final and 10 will go through to Saturday.

In the BBC poll the Finnish rockers are running away with the vote. Of the 6 countries to choose from, they get over 80% of the votes. What can this all mean???

Summer must be fast approaching, the sign up is open for The Summer Burn 2006. This year there's an extra step to the signing up procedure, so hopefully it wont be like last year when I sent my 2 cds all the way from America to Malaysia and England and neither of them sent me one back, how rude!

In other exciting news Shipwrecked finished this weekend. I somehow got quite obsessed by it, I even had to tape it when I went away for the weekend. I did start watching it and wondered how it was still going, and I was quite disapointed with the two battling islands idea. Everyone seemed very unpleasant, but then I found myself warming to the lovely sharks and then being thrilled when they beat the dirty tigers. Hooray!!!

New Photos for you to see of me and Luke's adventures in Spain last weekend. It was lots of fun, Granada was gorgeous and the Alhambra was amazing. Wedding in Marbella was great, Stefana looked great and very happy.

Nasrid Palace The lovely Alhambra, all very impressive.

Generalife, Alhambra and it had wonderful gardens which smelled lovely.

Luke in Marbella WE spoke a little bit of Spanish and ate some (veggie) paella here.

Stefana & Lee The bride and groom at the lovely wedding by the sea.

Birmingham Airport sadly the on way home ryanair diverted us from stansted to Birmingham, with an extra hour or two on the plane looking at our bus to the terminal.


My Ant and Dec siteThe end of an era, Kate sent me this new story. Originally only intended to run for 6 episodes, Byker Grove is to end after 17 years.

After bringing us the magical talents of not just PJ and Duncan with their singing and DJing skillz. There was also Geoff man, physcandrycs, a boy kissing a boy, her off corrie and eastenders, and spuggie!

Rick Wakeman was on dictionary corner on Countdown yesterday and shared a fab trick.

With your legs crossed so your right leg is on top, make your foot turn in a clockwise direction. Keep the foot turning and while you keep doing, that draw the number 6 in the air with your right hand.

Now have a look at the direction your foot is turning in.


Peta are having a vote to see "Who's the World's Sexiest Vegetarian?". There's alot more boys than girls on the list and strangely I'm not on the list of ladies, I guess they didn't want to embarrass the other lasses on the list when all the votes went to me.


Photobucket seems to be even cleverer than I realised.
It lets you see this clip of the finale of Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede, including Luke laughing as the Doves are released.


Even more good news! There are now some more Photos to see online as taken by ME! (well some of them are taken by my mate Sue too)
There's some of Cambridge in the snow, which makes most places look pretty and views of where I work and live.Earth science department coffee room, cambridge Uni. There's some pics of a day out my Luke and my mum at Sheringham on the north norfolk coast, and Sue walking at Cromer and from this weekend when me and Sue walked from Cromer to Sheringham to get some chips.

This was in the bargain bin at the local video shop the other day and it reminded me how much I liked it. "SWEET, but what does mine say?" Genius. Well worth a Sunday afternoon viewing.
