Wondering Wanderer

Week Notes Vol 158

May 16, 2022

I have never quite managed to explain the phenomen that is Eurovision to my American friends. Perhaps it’s the same as American Super Bowl? The main difference being that it’s not about the ads but a weird mix of picking the best song in the current political climate. I’m not really surprised by the fact that Ukraine won. I am slightly wondering what was the reason behind UK’s popularity or why Norway’s fox song didn’t score quite as high as I thought it would.

In any case, Richard and I hosted a party for about 14 people, great fun was had and I had the real British scones left over for breakfast the next morning. Now that’s what I consider a winning weekend!
