It was, as it turns out, the quietest Eurovision party we've hosted. I, for one, appreciated everyone having a comfy chair and being able to move about. Six of us in total. The pot luck was its usual plethora of food, little of it healthy (nom nom nom). The company? Era stupendo!

We did a few things a bit different this year too. With such a small group we skipped the trivia contest. Neither TV Polonia nor RAI International were carrying the show here in Vancouver so it was the web for us. However, after problems with eurovision.tv  a couple of years ago we used a combination of BBC One, SVT, RTÉ and eurovision.tv.  I signed up for one month of paid VPN to access the Beeb and Graham Norton's commentary. All of which we streamed via my iPad. Pretty fucking kewl if you ask me. 

Another thing done differently was me getting the winner right--preference and prediction. I'm in love with "Euphoria" and Loreen and think it trumps "Satellite" as the best winner of the last  decade. Already a huge hit too. 



But I'm in love with Ott Lepland, who's voice is amazing and had just the right mix of pretty and dirty. Mmmm....dirty.
