    Eurovision 2007

    Is on this weekend. Always gotta love a bit of lycra, a bit of cleavage, some white pants, and lots of sequins and some very ordinary, but often very earnest music. People going to watch?

    I've run a sweep at work for the last couple of years and had people around to drink beer and mock the proceedings.

    Of course last year things went horribly wrong when a half-way decent song won - I hear Lordi have got a movie coming out actually.

    Also, for Australian members, a heads up that SBS have got a gem of a mockumentary called "Boyzvoiced" on at 10:40 on Saturday night, after the Eurovision Prelims. Think "This is Spinal Tap", but featuring a Scandanavian boy-band. Seen it before and its absolute gold - my mates and I were quoting it for weeks...

    lol. How funny was it a couple of years back when England ended the night on "neu-ponts" and Wogan was torn between laughing and crying about it... The politics of the voting is always good for a laugh...

    I've got to watch that at some point. Have heard so many things about it.

    We're sending a 45-year-old who thinks she's 20. Awful all round.

    The German's must be in with a chance with lyrics such as "When I found out she wanted to save the environment I sewed "No thanks" on my parka."

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    The only thing that makes it remotely watchable is Wogan really. Spends the whole night ripping into people.

    Thought someone mentioned something last year about Morrissey being involved - did that fall through?
