Go ga-ga over Eurovision!

Eurovision is the largest non-sport competition in the world and dates back to 1956. No, it's not "like" American Idol. (Don't you dare compare.) It's European countries competing with an original song. It's showcased all over the world live while most Americans go about unaware. When a country wins, they host the next event. Last year Denmark won (while taking place in my proud home country of Sweden) so they are this years host. The event has grown with each Yugoslavian split or Soviet nation gone wild, so the one night event has turned into three. I'm inviting you to the final. If you want to keep check of the semi-finals, go here: http://www.eurovision.tv/page/timeline. The final is taking place 9pm there (somewhat European mid-whatever), so that would be 3pm here - let's go! 3 PM is the new (temporary) party time. You may wish to bring a lawn chair, just in case I've miscalculated my own (or Eurovision) popularity.

    Ack! I have to apologize that I will not be coming-- without telling you all my whole life story, I just tried to do tooooooo many things today. I hope that makes a space for someone else, and that I will see you all at another meet up.

      That's alright. I'm guessing Eurovision is about 3 hours - with voting.
