As long as someone gives me a better crashcourse than SatW gives for Eurovision, I'm game!

Also, telecommuting. Dang my lack of transporter device.

All I've been able to pull from SatW is that it's basically filmed musical shenanigans. With glitter. And back-biting politics.

Stock up on snacks, and have someone who knows Eurovision tell you the best time for bathroom breaks.

I suspect that whatever Satw said about euro vision was probably about right - her view of thibgs usually matches my own 😊

Not replying to poll as I have little idea of what I'll be doing in may, and it would be silly to take "may turn up on Skype" into account in planning. I'm not anticipating any Londoning that month.

I'm busy May 21st but otherwise available as far as I know, if you want me to be around for mentoring.

I voted preferring a hackspace, mostly because I'm curious, but it's definitely not a dealbreaker to do the other thing.
