Tonight is Eurovision, something the kids usually look forward to. This year was no exception, and at starting time the whole lot of us were gathered around the TV. After the snacks were eaten and the first several songs were sung, however, the kids started peeling off and now that the last act is performing, it’s just Olof and me still tuned in. And even to say that we’re “tuned in” is an exaggeration, as both of us are sitting here with our laptops, barely glancing at the show.

Our perseverance paid off just now, though, and we were treated to a little humor clip with Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi. Definitely the high point of the night; we mighas well just pack in in now, as it can only go downhill from here.
