    Oh, Ducky of course you can have a kilkenny.

    So, Scootch are our Eurovision entry....There are no words to describe my feelings on this particular song. If you haven't heard it, then you are lucky. If it is possible, then I would say it is twice as bad as Daz. :lol: It's so, so bad!! I'm so ashamed. The outfits, the singing, the dancing, there are no redeeming features for this song.

    I live in California but I have scots-irish blood in me and apparently- according to my grandmother- part of her family was kicked out of Ireland because they were 'too opinionated'. <-- Sounds like my family alright :lol: :lol: :p

    I just checked the web to see who won the Eurovision yesterday and apparently "Scooch" won and will be representing Great Britain. Havent heard the song but judging by the photo they look like a cross between Butlins Redcoats and trolley dollies! Another year where we can cringe with embarrassment. Nothing new there then!

    When Sir Terry Wogan was presenting he got the result wrong saying that the winner was Cyndi, and all the confetti started falling, then co-presenter Fearne Cotton was like; "Scooch, it's Scooch!" I got really angry because I thought either Big Brovas or Hawkins & Brown should've won, but they were 2nd group of two that were out! I think that Scooch will just demean our name even more; then again it's just a song contest, we never took it seriously before and why should we start now? There were very 'camp' entries back in the Golden Age of the ESC. Hopefully, it will bring in the Nostalgics' votes; and the fact that the band is so rubbish and pathetic, it may bring in sympathy votes. :lol:

    Anyway, have any of you guys been seeing and experiencing the freaky weather lately? Today it was sunny and bright and started hailing, melted again then began to snow. Looking out my window now, it's a mixture of rain and sleet, I tell you global warming has a very strange effect. :lol: :D

    Because we have such rubbish weather that is why. :lol:
    I had to walk to college and back today 4 times! (I have no friends to spend lunch with or anything, so go home for lunch) I freezed my arse off! Really windy too. Rode my horse out and he was crazy because we haven't been able to ride him for a week because of the weather. I say bring on the global warming!!

    No-one been in here lately?

    Anyone fussed about the Budget? Im not into politics in any way and all the Budget means it me is that I have to pay more for my wine!

    The news is so depressing, is there nothing good happening in our country?

    Anyone going to see The Police at Twickenham? I wanted to but missed the first day of buying tickets and now they are in the hundreds and I cant afford it. :(

    I'm not English but I hope I'm welcome here. I love football and basketball, so as you can see the TV's usually tuned to the EPL.

    Watching the England vs Italy U-21 match, I must say those lads look mighty cute to me!

    Am I off topic? :confused:

    Sorry for being so slow at replying.

    I do and have always lived in Nottingham. It is a fantastic place with lots to do. There are great shops (we are in the top 5 shopping places in the country), brilliant nightlife, lovely countryside nd plenty to do. I wouldn't change it for the world.

    Oh and it is true that we have a higher ratio of women to men. Does make it harder to find a date though, lol.
