Euro-Visionaries

I'm very excited about Eurovision song contest on Saturday. The last time Serbia &Montenegro participated was in 1991 (and the political voting ought to be interesting; I'm curious how badly we'll get slagged off by the ex-Yug nations- although Macedonia ought to give us some points).

I realise that some of you stranded souls across the Big Pond will be deprived of this spectacle, but fear not, for here to delight you is The Eurovision Song Contest Official Website

The Yug entry- by Zeljko Joksimovic When people in Serbia & Montenegro were voting for what song to send to Eurovision, Zeljko Joksimovic won obviously but the runners up were a (dire) boy band called The Fifth Element one of whose members is a classmate of mine from Belgrade. Surreal.

For added stimulation check out a picture of his band which I find hysterical, because they all look stoned. I can understand the presence of the musical instruments in the composition but the goose utterly mystifies me. Perhaps they are so stoned they've mistaken it for a musical instrument.

What I'm not excited about is the fact that I went to see my GP today and got prescribed fucking SSRIs AGAIN even though they actually do nothing for me beyond ruin my sex life when I have one.

Ah well. Life is shit. And Wellbutrin is not licensed to be prescribed as an anti-depressant in the UK.

I've tried to teach yugoslovia how to be cool for years now, a sort of "My Fair Lady" thing, but I'll be damned if they ever listen to me.

Sorry to hear about your presciption :( I know from experience that depression meds can be tough on a gal's vagina. Uhm, I've got a prescription and a refill on my Wellbutrin, I don't think I can even use all that...so if you want some kind of illegal international trade - I don't mind.

Thanks for the compliments :) Except...I wouldn't call it immoral - if you want some wellbutrin, hey! it's your choice. I can give it to you cheap too, thanks to the county government I get a years supply for ten bucks! So thats what? ehh... uhm... i'll give you a month's supply for... 3 pounds? or maybe just a few pence. do they use pence over there, or is that just from dickens novels or something??

A year's supply for 10$? bloody hell, that's a pretty sweet deal. The prescriptions here are a rip-off.

Pence still exist- 100 pence makes 1 pound. But farthings and shillings and some weird denominations that Victorian novels are rife with are no longer in existence (tenpence? Sixpence? Tuppence maybe. Anyhow).
