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?


  1. Thank you Nige for reminding me that we're always aiming to get nul points. For a moment today, I started to compain how utterly bland this year's entry was when I should really have been praising it.

  2. Happy one thousandth Nige, ten hundreds, here's to the same again. The best that can be said about the ESC is that it was very...Norwegian, yes that's it, Norwegian, very Lutofiskish, Munchkinesque even. As Mai-Brit once said 'we are Wikings', I agrieged, not daring to kontikidict her.

  3. In fact, I saw your pigs today. Very nice.

  4. Happy 1000 Nige!

    We faced the devastating fact this weekend that you just cannot get hold of the Eurovision Song Contest in NZ. Gay housemate was near-suicidal. So thanks for the rundown! We did Youtube the German entry yesterday and it was bloody awful!

  5. Happy Thousandth Nige. May we all enjoy many more.

  6. I was impressed by the Armenian representative, hem hem.

    1000 up, good work. That's a lot of words, innit.

  7. Congratulations, Nige. I look forward to the next 1,000.

    And thanks for the tip on the Eurovision Song Contest -- we in the States don't know what we have been missing! (Not that we suffer from a dearth of fine entertainment, of course.)
