Hugh’s happiness about Estonia may have two reasons.
Only a few days ago, Estonia became the first former Soviet state to legally recognise same-sex partnerships, as the BBC reported here. The new legislation will come into effect in 2016. You may also have read Stephen Fry’s blog on the topic.
There’s also England’s game against Estonia in the qualifying campaign for Euro 2016 last night. England won the game in Tallinn 1-0.

I read an anecdote from someone whose African Grey didn’t particularly get along with her Amazon parrot, Paco. One night she was preparing cornish hens for dinner, while the grey hung out with her in the kitchen. He got a closer look at one of the hens, looked his mama dead in the eyes and asked, “Paco?” Then he laughed.
that is one sadistic bird
I am slightly afraid now.
I love birds?
African Grey Parrots are one of the smartest birds, and seems they can be known to play “jokes” or “pranks” on their owners or any visitors.
I was visiting a friend of the family one time and I was just casually watching tv when I thought I heard the water running. I go into the kitchen but everything’s fine. the parrot looks at me and says “gotcha”.
Parrots are awesome.

Christopher, from ‘The Pursuit of Happyness’. (via perculiarquotes)
A guy is drowning, a man comes by throwing him a rope: “No thanks, I don’t need the rope. God will help me!”
Then a boat drives by: “Come on board!”
Guy answers: “No, God will help me.”
Then a helicopter comes. He refuses again. He drowns.
He comes in heaven, very disappointed: “Why didn’t you help me, God?”
God answers: “I sent you a man with a rope, a boat and a helicopter, how much help do you need?”
