This week on my Twitter feed
, if you thought I tweeted a lot of gubbins about The Voice
and X Factor
, be glad Eurovision
's only once a year. Unfortunately for my twitter followers, this was that week this year.
At some accursed hour of the night, I remembered that Kate & Allie existed. Then the theme music got stuck in my head.

@emslj It's a shame we're destined never to meet, I could rave on at you about Brimstone and Treacle until the cows came home.

When five people are waiting for you to finish your drink so they can go for food, why not nurse it for half an hour? You'll be popular!

Change of plans means I'm now watching #eurovision
at home, desperately hoping Twitter can make it entertaining.

I can't believe #eurovision
's being held in the punchline to an Eddie Izzard joke. Next year it'll be hosted by James Mason.

Well Albania was very loud and screamy. I can hear Tom Jones' chair turning from here. #eurovision #thevoice

I like that Graham felt the need to clarify that "like a young John Barrowman" was meant as a compliment #eurovision

It's true then, sooner or later everyone DOES get to join the Sugababes #eurovision #russiangrannies

"No sign of Great Britain." It's 3am there, Engelbert's been asleep for hours #eurovision
11:18 PM - 26 May 12 via TweetDeck
Well, that controversial political statement was worth waiting for. #eurovision
11:21 PM - 26 May 12 via TweetDeck
I don't know why Graham's so worried about making Engelbert feel better. He's 76, he has NO idea what's going on. #eurovision

The Donmar only releasing two shows this time made the 40 minutes on hold even worse. Can't wait to do that again in a couple of months :(
9:52 AM - 27 May 12 via TweetDeck
And the hold music's still on a 30-second loop. *internal jukebox hell for the next week*
9:53 AM - 27 May 12 via TweetDeck
@Elsiebrewster I complained about the hold music last time. Clearly it had a HUGE impact.

I think about half the time recording this week's theatre podcast was spent trying to decide how to pronounce Miriam Buether's name.

Oh gawd, there's football this summer as well isn't there? Although from the BBC trailer I think there might actually be Crusades.
