As I wrote in my kayak journal

Sometimes a cold is a cold, and other times it is man flu.

I had a choice when planning my recent trip to the US, to visit family before the cruise, or to cruise first, and then visit family. I chose the former, so that I could be home, and well rested enough to be able to enjoy Eurovision. Yes. I am a Eurovision dork, and I freely admit it. It starts in just a few minutes, and I am giddy with excitement. Or that might possibly be the wine. Tonia has just tossed a couple of steaks on the grill, and I am home, and getting over my jet lag, and also my man flu. I even napped today, so I can stay up late and enjoy the glorious foolishness that has become my favorite TV event in recent years.

oh I think it makes sense to plan travel around Eurovision!

Wasn’t Moldova fantastic? That teddy bear and the way she almost fell off the couch!!

Damn! Just realised yesterday was not the last Friday of the month! Oh well, 6 more to go then! 🙂

I often think that the only thing better than an exciting trip is coming back home. Wine, grilled steaks, and a good show sound heavenly.

Loved the knitting brides in Bosnia & Herzagovina’s entry, although the song was a little … shouty. Loved loved loved the pirates – Latvia I think? Personal favouritre for the song itself has to be Greece, i thought it was ace. Was VERY disturbed by the Spanish entry, so disturbed in fact that I had to put my knitting down for fear of poking myself in the eyes…

Ah… another lovely Eurovision!

Eurovision! The perfect thing to watch online while I lay in my sickbed, dying of your man flu. (I don’t care if you can’t catch germs via Skype, I’m blaming you.)

Hi Brenda,

Wishing you a speedy recovery! (and selfishly your return to the most addictive and wonderful podcast in cyberspace)

You know that spot on the back of your hand, between the thumb and forefinger? The big meaty part? Press that! And 2 inches away from your wrist, on the back of your forearm. *hugs*

Hi Brenda, I talked to you briefly on the Sea Socks and when I said I lived near Lorna’s Laces you asked if I had any recording equipment, I said I didn’t but one of my friends does. Was there anything you wanted recorded?

There is a very funny youtube video about a man-cold.
