Europe, I hardly knew you

I love visiting Europe. However, there are moments, as this clip will illustrate, when Europe bewilders me. What I find even more fascinating is the aura of cultural superiority that Europeans maintain vis-a-vis Canada. Now, I know that Eurovision is seen by many in the UK at least as a hilarious contest, but I am quite sure that our Lithuanian friends found absolutely zero irony in their ridiculous performance. It's totally cringe-worthy, folks. Enjoy.

ADDENDUM: This reminds me of another fantastic European performance.

They have such playful eyes - especially winner #2. Honestly, this really made my day - that was hilarious. "We are the winners, of 'Euro(pe)' vision, we are we are, we are we are!!!"

honestly,baby, the only people that take Eurovision seriously are the Greeks....which is a bit of a disaster. I watched it and it was good, tacky, fun... Anna rocked, but so did Lordi. xo

I love you... and forgot my cell but have a question for you...I'm going to Mykonos and booked two nights at 57 E a night..it's close to the beach. I could have gone to a hotel for 44 E a night but it's a bit further and more ghetto. am I being too extravagant. Am I worth it ? L'OReal
