Today is Mother’s Day but only in Slovenia, if we believe Wikipedia. How lucky then that mom is Slovenian out of all nations. And how lucky that I was born near her.
Last year I wrote about how we found our first dog in the trash on this day. Talking about a present. Here he is, his name was Žak:
This year amore is cutting chocolate salami for you, mom, but you’ll have to fight bestia for it. 😀 (nahh, we don’t let him eat that! It’s got rum!)
And now let us sing all together with Slovenian vocal orchestra Perpetuum Jazzile (check out their youtube channel for more amazing a cappella singing) for my mom and all the mothers in the world:
LALA LALA LALA LALAAAA! ♫♪

My mom is the author of this alternative lyrics to Slovenian Eurovision Song Contest entry which will be performed tonight in the second semifinals, and in English translation her version goes something like this:
When you down download, you can’t have a taste unless you know how to copy paste.
This year Slovenia is broadly liked and cheered on. The song crawls under the skin. If it hasn’t yet, here, give it a try, just like Slovenian vocal orchestra Perpetuum Jazzile did, shortly after the song had been chosen as the national winner:
And this was a live performance of Maraaya with PJ for national TV.
The finals is on Saturday. (EDIT: I love it how I didn’t even doubt that they will make the finals. Now they had and they will be the first to sing on the night. Top 5 is still feasible but more unlikely under these circumstances.) Whatever happens, I’m happy this year, but you know you want to come to Slovenia next year, Europe!

I could put here many songs by this Slovenian vocal orchestra but I choose this one because it’s by their (former) leader, because the video is wwwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaah to cry for and because it has no words but it still speaks. And because right now, after that basketless b-ball, marks just that spot which the ice-cream at 6 am missed. Agreed, Jan?
