I'm not your toy, you stupid boy



Apart from all the "ooh-ing" and "aah-ing" at John-John's new place on Saturday, our little gang embarked on a mammoth session of pre-Eurovision madness - watching all 43 confirmed entries for the contest 2018 in Lisbon...

Among the dreary balladry, childishly whiny "political" messages about peace, the cod-rock and truly dreadful hairstyles, the UK's own SuRie and Storm came across rather favourably (and is certainly the only song we came away singing, so that's promising). However, on this Tacky Music (Bank Holiday) Monday, I have a "treat" in store to cheer us all up as we sit and watch the constant, never-ending, rain.

Laydeez'n'gennlemens, meet Netta!


The contest has been crying out for several years for a Beth Ditto-looky-likey doing chicken noises.

    1. Originally it was a short form for the name Antoinette, but, like so many (such as "Harry", "Jack", "Liz/Liza/Beth", "Tom/Tommy", "Matt", "Kate", et al) it has been adopted as a full name. Her surname's Barzilai, incidentally, and you don't meet many of those either... Jx
