# At the Oscars!

Well, these days being part of the glittering world of show-biz is not necessarily a good thing, but when your life is soooo glamorous that someone feels the unstoppable need to make a biopic of it… well, you really need to embrace your new status as a movie star and enjoy all the perks that life will now throw at you…

I know, I know… This is still about the Eurovision. But, this time they made a short video to tell the story $-$ you may think the still above hows Marta and me, but these are actually two actors, playing us!

I think they’ve made a very good job at rendering us $-$ particularly me, I think. If you believe the movies:

• We (particularly I) are younger than we really are;
• We drink a lot (although “Marta”’s drink 25 seconds in looks like a cross between Cranberry juice and the stuff they use to show vampires drinking human blood from hospital blood bags)…
• We laugh a lot $-$ I think this is kind of true, though…
• I like how 1 min 24 seconds in, “Marta” authoritatively demands a kiss on the cheek and “my” response to that is covered by floating webpages $-$ kind of rated R
• The storyline seems to suggest that we thought about doing this as wondered whether we should do a Bayesian model $-$ of course that was never in question!…

Anyway, I think I need to thank the guys at Taylor & Francis (Clare Dodd, in particular), who’ve done an amazing job!
