The Eurovision.





Oh god it was even more horrific than I imagined. Dustin, the green white and gold feathered dancers, the gold lame dressed backing singers-who to their credit looked suitably mortified, the boos from the audience.
But fear not, there was one redeeming feature. We were bad, but at least we were not Estonia.

The Eurovision was once a tv show to be enjoyed but now it is one to be laughed at.

Did you see Russia's entry? The confused looking figure skater? I looked over at the LGK at that point and was worried she'd actually had a stroke from laughing.

Andorra was robed, but my money is now going on Azerbaijan and that crazy shrieking angel and the 'dark-one' pouring blood on the writhing girls... I mean, I'd NEVER seen anything like it, it's like they'd studied every meatloaf video every made.

I think it was a deliberate attempt to ensure we don’t get in, hosting the event is too expensive.

In other news I was running up the canal minding my own business when I heard unmerciful roars of the mini cat variety. I looked everywhere as it was still bright out but could see nothing. I must have appeared quite mental to passing motorists but nevertheless I pressed on with my search and found the chap under hedging, and a mental looking chap at that, he must have got knocked down. I tried o pick him up by the scruff and he Ninja chopped me, my arms are destroyed, I ran home got my cat basket and drove back down, I was like lightening wiping him up this time. I drove him into town to the vet, which is where he is now, awaiting collection. The thing is the vet said he is wild and about 9 or 10 and thinks it best to put him down particularly as I have a Tomcat already. I don’t know what to do, what do you think?

er, it depends surely on whether you want another cat or not and if he's free from feline aids and other infectious diseases. It would be VERY unusual for a feral intact Tom to live to nine or ten, and probably hard to home him. On the other hand if you're prepared to put the time and money into him...
I'm probably the wrong person to ask actually, as I type the three useless articles I neither asked for or wanted are all lying sprawled in various patches of sunlight under my desk.

Ahh I'd say he is about 9, there is no way anybody owned him. I took a picture of him on my phone last night he is gas looking fella altogether. I will try mail it to myself and send it to you it. I don't mind taking him or the money, sure one more won't hurt but since he is a pikie tom cat I don't want him roughing up my cat and dude I'd say he would kill me, you and all our cats put together. The vet said he is unmanageable. I have to pay the vet about 160 euro to get him out and I am wondering will he just beat the shit out of my cat or just rob my gaff and do a runner as soon as I bring him home.

Just be careful, a mature feral cat would be a serious commitment and you really need to get him checked for disease before introducing him to your animals.

Was that man really trying to hump the piano? And why was there an exploding accordion? And a giant onion?

I haven't laughed so hard in the middle of the night for ages. That was bloody priceless. I'm not going to get anything done today fro watching eurovision You-Tubes. God, I miss it!

That was good of you to care enough to rescue the cat, nonny. I'm with fmc though. He would likely be impossible to look after adn dangerous for your other animals. You could go with the saucer of milk on the doorstep every night thing but then you'd have every cat, fox, hedgehog, badger in the place at your door. It'd be like a moister Serengheti.

Maybe f you you have an outhouse or something you could let the cat hang out there until he's recovered.

I felt sorry for Dustin, going in there on a wing and a prayer, just to get the stuffing knocked out of him, but he made the breast possible effort, knowing that the eastern europeans would carve it up between them. It was never going to fly, was it? He was plucked from the outset.

Bah, he was lame duck from the off Docky!
Sam, what of the dancing girls?

You talk sense Sam but I am a sucker for a trouble riser. I asked the vet to give him a once over. I think my own cat thinks he’s human anyway. I also have my suspicions that he thinks we are married, he looks down on me when I speak to him, ignores me when I call him and turns over with his back to me when I get into MY bed beside him. I also called the very unhelpful DSPC in Rathfarnham, just on the off chance Tom does belong to someone. I have to ring at 4 and see if he is ready!! I am gonna apply for a job with the Wonder Pets.

Sorry to say darling, they somehow failed to pass the difficult voting process. But fear not there are MANY other eurodeeelights in store.

Those monochromatic Miami Vice suits are so sad. It sounded like a Mentos commerical to me.
Eeeeeee!
