Even the Pigs Are Celebrating
This is my 1,000th post on Nigeness! And to think that I was a reluctant blogger, dragged into the business by The Yard whom God preserve. Looking back, I see my very first post on Nigeness was about the Eurovision Song Contest. Two years, on I missed most of last night's Eurovision - what little I saw seemed more blandly boring than stark staring Eurobonkers - but I tuned in for the judging, which is always half the fun, with its procession of microcelebs from forgotten corners of Europe desperately milking their announcement moment. Anyway the Germans steamrollered the competition - we seem to have reached the point where the occupied countries are letting bygones be bygones - but sadly the UK, in its heroic quest for the elusive nul points, was let down by a couple of foreigners giving us some points. Better luck next year, eh?
