I know... I was busy during the day and went out last night, so I missed the opportunity.

I'm sure Hilde will do a good job though. For once someone labels the thread with the tournament name and the year so that we don't confuse it with threads from previous years.

Hild, are you around? What does this mean?

Le remboursement doit être terminé lorsque le montant des prestations exécutées atteint 80% TTC du montant du marché.
I especially want to know what "precompte" means and TTC

Changing the topic into something else (probably of no interest to anybody else):
Is it too soon to talk about Eurovision yet?
Belgium is going to send an Elvis imitator to the Eurovision songfestival and Elvis fans are already pissed off about it.

I've another nice saying for what happened - a storm in the teacup, is it correct in English?
And if you want my opinion I agree with Melanie and Metis - it's a nice clear title. I know some people here prefer looooooong thread titles, I actually prefer shorter thread titles so...
Edit: Metis, see what happens when you stay away just for a day. That's why I can't open any tournament threads, I may not be able to update it every day.

Re: Chat Thread "The Den of Spite and Iniquity"

I haven't heard most of the songs but I gather it's going to be a bit of a weird year this year. A lot of ballads, and some very weird stuff being sent.

Are Belgium still annoyed over Kate Ryan and that's why they keep sending bizarre stuff? The entry last year was a bit way out there...

Here's Estonia's entry for this year, IMO not bad. Have fun.

Not that you're doing all that but I do see that you've taken this up in another thread and of course, Mikey, needs to add fuel to the fire. If you were taken aback by my reaction, why go to somebody else? We're not 5-year olds who need to run to our daddy. We should be able to talk about disagreements.

Don't mind me... You keep doing your adorable thing in here and I'll be the grumpy one.
You dont have to justify your sense of humor at all. I know that you were only joking.
My bark is louder than my bite (do you say that in English?).
Please don't stay away from here because of me. Put me on ignore or something.
is it a drama...?why
my drama i dont get all in english

I SAID, no time for to speak today..
I said yesterday night my thought to u here and i dont talk bad or insulting u in another thread, if i share my thought with mike coz he is my best friend ,in his casa i dont need to ask the permess to anyone.blame me for his reaction
I said that because i'm in no in a mood i 'd prefer to stay whrere my words or my mood cant offender no1.it doesnt mean i abbandon the thread but only i wont this question...now

i'm not mad with u...wont put u in ignore..some misanderstanding maybe...

Thanks Maria

I quite like that.

It's a big improvement on Estonia's effort last year, that's for sure

Yep Scoobs, at least much better than last year.

Betty is upset.

Re: Chat Thread "The Den of Spite and Iniquity"

Belgium has a habit of sending weird stuff because we usually don't stand a chance in that voting system anyway.
I can't remember what we sent last year other than that it was utter crap (and not in a good way).
Usually we take turns in picking songs. Last year, Flanders got to pick a song , this year, it's Wallonia's turn (and they usually select slightly better songs in all honesty).

Do I detect sarcasm there.


Andreea...hmm...not easy to translate that sort of stuff because I'm thinking in Dutch and those are not terms I'm familiar with in English.. I'll give it a go:
Précompte...voorheffing in Dutch. (bedrijfsvoorheffing) I'm not sure what the correct word for it is in English but in this case, it's the tax on labour and it's deducted from the wages beforehand (hence the "pré"). Companies have to transfer the money to the government.
Simplified, it means that the government tries to encourage companies to transfer that "précompte" well in advance by letting them to pay well in advance on regular intervals, giving them a tax deduction as a result.

So, you can either pay with regular intervals well in advance (every quarter of the year) or you pay it at the end of the term but you'll have to pay more.

TTC = Toutes Taxes Comprises (all taxes included)

If Eurovision teaches us one thing - it's that comedy does not translate well across Europe
