Jealous is not the word. You lucky thing! 🤗
So happy for you!
Well done, American!
I'm happy for you nix, I'm sure you can give him the benefit of the doubt, but after the 'I think you could be borderline' situation keep an eye on him, if not two eyes...
Oh Penelope. ! It definitely isn't worth being jealous of. You know We have our issues!
Alicia and Albertine. Thank you. I'm trying to not get too excited
John. I agree. I'm trying not to get too emotional. And he is coming this weekend, but I'm not as excited as before, but I am happy.you are up north? Otherwise we would be out for beer weekly
Yeah you gotta live and take your chances - something I need to tell myself! I'm in Sheffield so yes the north begins here for a lot of people.
South London. But we should do a panda meetup
Yeah. I've still not met Tasha S and she lives 10 minutes walk away! Kym S used to live nearby too. My Dad lived near Croydon for a lot of his youth. My uncle lives near Honour Oak.
Cmon guys. What about Birmingham
I don't know how I'd feel at a meet up. I hope some people do meet up though and there are pandas I talk to a lot off MoodPanda who I'd love to meet one day.
I'd have to be talked round I think! 😁
Oh come on john
You are one of the most fun and social pandas
Alright but if it's a meet up we need more than just us two.
Cmon Pandas - I'd do it. Birmingham, as it's in the middle? There's always my own beautiful Edinburgh:)
I would be up for Edinburgh. Need advance dates for decent price flight
Maybe I could make a day trip to bonny Scotland... Megabus probably goes there but it's evil. Sheffield is midway between Edinburgh and London! 😁😁😁😁
Are you okay???
JoAnn. It's gross. I've sliced my thumb and it is held together by 1 mm skin. If I cut it off it might be better but I touch eyelids etc
So having a bleeding wound is not ideal either

You are welcome John. The perfect gift
Always gay for a day on Eurovision! 😁
Good luck Norway
What were the judges thinking??
That running order for the final is very favourable to Australia... Netherlands even firmer favourites with the bookies???
Gutted poland didn't get through. Australia will do well but I don't like the song. Iceland my dark horse although no where near mainstream enough... Another Lordi?
Possibly. It's been a while since that type of music won, so it could be there year. I think the costumes will alienate a lot of people though. I don't like Australia either
I'm liking Spain. Ireland. Estonia. Austria. And for some reason Greece has a real feel good vibe that appeals.
Oh and of course San Marino. It could be serhats year. I thought he was worth putting £1 each way on
Serhat will get a large share of the ironic vote!
I can't remember which country it was but there was a very downbeat electronica pop song by a depressed looking boy and girl... I really liked that. I might buy it.
I have a friend that is obsessed with it and he thinks Norway and Macedonia have a good chance. Fingers crossed as I've had a dabble.
Netherlands is a strong favourite on skybet. I listened to their song it's got underwhelming staging. Sung competently but it's also forgettable. Don't see it winning. (I may eat these words on Sat...)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnA0doOsGDY These are my miserable teenagers, I like stuff like this. My favourite EV song since Sébastian Tellier turned up.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZQjBCvFd9E Sébastian Tellier radiating his immense power there.
Oh Slovenia. Their intense staring worries me some
Norway is pretty good. I've heard it once on the cd. Waiting for tomorrow to see the staging.
🤞for a win ian
Liking Lithuania tonight
Norway is where the smart money is
John. I can't imagine the Netherlands winning. Apologies to any Dutch pandas
Ugh, what a horrible thing for your friend, even if they weren't close. Such a dark pall on good things. Good luck with the work thing!
Sounds like things are going really well though? :)
Things are back on. Yay.
I wish it was as easy as him moving his minimal stuff in with my junk.
But the ocean, politics and stuff mean it's unlikely for a number of years.
aaaah the jetlag
Headache lasted a couple of days, but better now, and I got to the states for the weekend. On way back now. Will be tired from a few days, but recovered. Thanks for checking
Get well soon nixibear
Get well soon, nixi! 💙
Safe travels & have fun! 💙
You could phone a helpline. Explain you aren't in crisis but really could do with talking this through.
Or talk it out with a friend, perhaps? Some things are easier to talk about with friends than other things...
