I beat you to it. Godiva has a new bar that's milk chocolate with strawberry bits in it. They had it at a nearby shop.
Enjoy watching Nationals, all you in Canada! I hope everyone skates splendid programs.
I hope Patrick will have a great skate...great to celebrate the Chinese New Year
Maybe instead of throwing flowers and toys and panties....they should just give him some good lucky red-pocket $$

Patrick was brilliant! And it was really interesting seeing Reynolds and Rogozine. The women were more interesting this year. Quite a few feisty skaters. Pairs is a real nailbiter; I hope they all skate splendidly. Duh/Rad look really strong and Dube looks refreshed. Wow, it's exciting! Ice dance is scaring me. V/M just look like different skaters. Hope that's just a blip. Going to get a quick bite and then it's back to the TV with wine AND chocolate. Egads, I love Nationals!
Three words to describe Patrick's short program: Perfection, Perfection, Perfection!!!!!
I hope he can "bring it" again tomorrow in the long.
Chan skates one for the ages at Canadian championships
“Believe it or not, his last words to me (before he went on the ice) are, ‘I’m going to take small steps,’” said his coach Christy Krall. “Because when he starts to overstride, he gets too fast and you’ve seen what that does. Sometimes he runs into walls.”
Patrick Chan takes commanding lead at Canadian figure skating championships
With consistency, Kevin would be a great choice.Asked who he would prefer to accompany to the world championships, Chan said he was confident Reynolds could deliver the goods.
“All of the (top men) are great,” said Chan, who was born in Ottawa and grew up in Toronto. “They’re all great friends.
“I think we have a strong team spirit. Out of all the years I’ve been on the world team, this is the biggest brotherhood I would say, out of all of us. But it would be nice to see Kevin go (to the world championships). He’s a very consistent, very strong skater, and he’s made a lot of improvements from last year.”

I love the end of this one showing skaters and coaches applauding, which is not shown on the TSN video.

"World figure skating champion Patrick Chan was spotted in the elevator of his hotel on Saturday morning with big plate of bacon and eggs" (http://www.torontosun.com/2012/01/21...-championships). Aha, now we are talking! A big plate of bacon and eggs dipped in sweet cream butter, adorned with parsley, broccoli and salad shrimp to lend vivid, beautiful spring colors, and sprinkled with black pepper, chili powder and ground almond/peanuts according to individual taste. Or maybe he was just being a good kid bringing breakfast to his parents or whoever accompanied him to the competition.
