So last night was the Eurovision Song Contest. As we say in German "Alle Jahre wieder" which loosely translates to "that time of year again". :) It's such a crazy show full of the strangest performances, the weirdest hairdos, the craziest dancers and outfits but somehow when you put it all together it ends up being fun. They don't broadcast it on TV here in the US so I have to record it via my German TV website and then download it and watch it after the fact. But luckily this year I was able to chat with my best friend Joanne in the UK while she was watching it. So I already have a pretty good idea who all the craziest people on there were. :) We had a fun conversation going while she was watching it and commenting on all the stuff that was happening. All the while discussing with Mike and our friend Kelly (who are both American) why the Eurovision song contest even exists and what the point behind it is. Not something easy to explain to someone not European. LOL.
Not too much else new really. Worked yesterday. Today we have the day off. It's a really dark, rainy day so we slept in very late. Been up for a bit now, took a shower and it's already almost 2pm. Where does the time go? Will probably head out for a late lunch/early dinner in a little bit and then come home and catch up on some of our recorded TV shows. We still have "The Office" and "Big Bang Theory" season finales to watch. We did watch the "How I Met Your Mother" finale on Monday.
One week to go until Memorial Day so next week will definitely be very busy at work. And then just a couple more days and I will be on a plane to Europe. Time flies. :)
Mail Update: Still need to mail those letters to: Lotte/Denmark and Laura/Spain. Owe replies to: Charles/TN and Tiffany/OK.
