Tomorrow's second day of selling has been cancelled as most of the stuff was sold within 3 hours. Over 1000 people visited the sale making a line outside of 100 meters already before the doors opened.... :-( I was planning on going tomorrow due to work... Not fair!

YLE is selling next Monday and Tuesday all the goodies used in Eurovision: flags, banners, lamps, chairs, papers and all the rest. All money goes to Ylen Hyvä charities for children in need. Also RadioVega sells some stuff on auction for the same cause on Wednesday.
Marija Serifovic did it. She came out in Serbian TV after winning Eurovision and declared her song Molitva is dedicated to all minorities. She belongs to two herself: lesbian and gipsy. Brave girl, Serbia isn't the easiest place on earth to come out!

Well deserved winner

Hanna's performance on TV was watched by nearly 2,2 million Finns. We must go back over 20 years to have such an audience for Eurovision in Finland. Also Helsinki bars, BioRex for fans and Senate's Square were packed and not counted in that number. In average the final was followed by 1,9 million Finns while the semifinal's average was just under 0,9 million.
For all of you who have missed my updates - I know you are like three of you - I try to get back in business after this rather overwhelming Helsinki 2007 experience.... Ten days, 2260 photos, 24 CDs/promopacks, 20 autographs and 23 photos with the stars, opening party, nights at EuroClub, days at EuroVillage, Palestinian press conference, breakfast with Eric from Austria, T-shirts, pins and hanging out days and nights at Lasipalatsi, Dima Bilan, after party.... just to name a few, it's time sit down, go through the photos and newspapers and try to get some order into this chaos. Meanwhile I'll do Krisse and just say: I go now, bye!
