    translation.
    I used to have days on which I could land them and the days that the quad left me.
    But lately, I have days on which I could land them 4 times out of 4 trials.

    I don't think so. Like him or not, Evan is not stupid and neither is Frank. Nationals did not work out. Evan knows he can be clean without the quad, so he will go for that and let the placement be what it may.

    If you say that is "lost", then what do you say about Miki's 3/3 ? She also tends to get downgrades to the point that she is wary of putting it in her programs anymore, even though she says she will at the Olympics. Also, if a skater can do it in practices, but for some reason at competitions due to nerves which I suspect may be the Japanese skaters' case, then do you call that losing it because they still can do it. So I don't think you can say that the skater has lost it.

    Not at this Olympics. There are too many skaters that we want to fit in. (I like his skating.)

    I had a dream that I was at the Olympics and landed a Quad. It was glorious. I came in 2nd in the Short Program too. The dream didn't last long enough to see how the Long Program went.

    Good idea! Plushy and Joubert on the top, Lambiel and Abbott second, and Takahashi and Chan third. (See, Chan can be on the podium too. Canada is happy.)

    Hmmm, ok, then Plushy, Joubert, and Lambiel on the top, Takahashi, Abbott, and Chan on the second, Verner, Oda, and Weir on the third. Everybody's happy.

    ...... (It's like a competition in kindergarten. Everybody has a prize.)

    It would be pretty insulting to leave Kozuka off!

    Sadly, I think Weir would be out. If we are going to go by the strength of their programs this year.

    That is hilarious. I quit dancing 10 years ago (woah, that long ago? scary) and I still sometimes dream that I'm doing a quintuple pirouette. That's the good dream ... sometimes I dream that I'm on stage and I never learned the steps and I'm trying to follow all the other dancers and play it off...

    I agree. I wouldn't put Weir on the podium anyway if it's not to make Seniorita happy.
