Eurovision song contest... rare occasion... Finland has 6th place as best placing ever, and is usually last. And it's not too bad either.
"Then it’s time for the most talked-about entry in this year’s contest: Lordi, the hard rock monsters from Finland. Wearing platform shoes that must be 12 inches high, lead singer Lordi growls out ‘Hard Rock Hallelujah’ in front of a stunning display of pyrotechnics – this isn’t just a few sparks; we’re talking huge jets of fire. Huge bat wings unfurl from Lordi’s back and by the end the now-smoke-filled arena is stunned. Terrifying but brilliant."
(And we are in the semi-finals in hockey world championships too - we beat Belarus 3-0 last night and need to beat Czechs tomorrow... I think Finland is one of the few countries in the world where they actually mentioned this in the middle of the ESC semifinals. :-D If the game would be played later, they would tell the results in the middle of the ESC finals too :-D Let's see what the Swedes too ;-) They are playing semifinals against Canada at the same time with the finals of ESC ;-))
Anyway. Now I know what I will do for Whiplash. There's a dog bed that needs a new cover, so I will be making a patchwork. I just need to think if I want to make it a rainbow, a pattern, just random squares or crazy patchwork. I don't know how time works with me, I need to visit my sisters this weekend. So I don't know if I have time to finish this thing. It's not a small job, considering that my sewing machine is broken, so I have to do it by hand. That's a good thing considering the fact, that I can do it sitting in train :-D Was there "sewing/crafting in public" group somewhere? I have seen "knitting in public". :-D
