Working in a choir singing contest held by Eurovision, which this year takes place in Barcelona.

The Danish contestants are really fun, but the Russians are probably going to win - they are the chorister equivalent of Ivan Drago. The Hungarian girls are the hottest.

The Danes pulled off the upset and won.

Were there any political shenanigans?

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.

Yeah, the crowd began to chant for independence after one of the performances, and the Catalan TV cut them off  :lol:

EBU warned them about not having political shenanigans in the broadcast, and they were very eager to please them.

Just a test to see if I can deep link to ebay auction images:



I might get this old book, cycled past that tree today.  :bowler:

Roomba are cool in theory.
But the problem with cleaning is taking stuff off the floor and putting them somewhere they're meant to be. Not the actual hoovering. That bit is easy.

I think I'll go with the Neato Botvac D4 instead. :P It has mapping. Although I am not a fan of the shape of it.

Never seen that much of a point in those cleaning robots... I can see plenty of places in my home where a robot couldn't reach, and those are the ones that are actually annoying to clean.

Went with a Neato D6 :P


I think we have managed to keep the majority of our new flat fairly easily navigable for a robot. My hope is that it will keep things clean enough so I can just do the hard to reach parts manually every 3 few weeks. Will see.

So Fortnite closed down before the new season and it's apparently real news. "How to talk to your kid about Fortnite closing"
