I love Eurovision, and I was sober when I watched it this time as well. For the first time in years I actually enjoyed the British entry. I am not sure why Australia wants to enter the Eurovison, but their song was great and I do feel that it is the more the merrier.
For all those in the USA who watched it for the first time - well now you know what we have been talking about. I don't know about the other European countries (plus Israel and Australia) but the music played on British radios is nothing like the Eurovision.
To be honest, I don't think the best song won. I think the best song of the evening was the parody of Eurovision sung by the hosts between the acts and the close of voting - here, for those interested. I didn't bother voting for any this year, but I would have voted for that. Thinking about it, I think the last time I voted for a Eurovision entry was when I voted for Lordi (who won in 2006 and were awesome!)
Jean - I am not surprised that they are so expensive. Sometimes you just pay for the marketing. I can't bring myself to pay all the money to try them!
Bless - I did wonder if you had seen the tea plantations. I don't like to assume but I did think that if anyone knew tea then it would be you.
