US novice champion Vincent Zhou admires Patrick for his sunny personality:
only 4 olympics? serious underacheiver! lol. wow. how old is Nathan Chen now? Vincent aspires to Plushenko longevity! oh to be young with mega confidence. clearly he has amazing parents as well as talent. good luck little Vincent.
Indeed, Patrick has a very sunny personality. That's why he is being adored here. I may have posted this here before? Can't remember and too lazy to check.
I wonder whether Patrick is at Colorado Spring these days. His website puts him in Colorado but I know it's not always accurate.
For now, the only thing new I can find is this pic on his site
I think he looks damn good there, even with that pseudo 'stache. But what do I know, right, Skater Boy?
Kathy Johnson was with him there in Casa Loma, Toronto, June 15.
Anybody has an idea what the event was?
Hmmm, it says rendevouzkorea 2012 as the name of the images. Rendez vous Korea? A good hint?
Here's a blog about Rendezvous Korean Cuisine 2012 at Toronto, June 8, hosted by the Korean Consulate. No mention of Patrick or Yuna. But yummy.
Well, we know Patrick is a Toronto VIP and a great Canadian representative.The guests came from all sectors – from politics to sports, from arts & culture to journalism, from chefs to those in the diplomatic corps. Next year will be the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Canada and Korea, and Rendezvous Korean Cuisine was a great way to continue deepening that great relationship.

I think Patrick is still in Toronto. He said before he would spend this summer in Toronto.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Ir2KtSP0kk I particularly like this arrangement because of the erhu and drum percussion. It's like yin and yang.
Not sure whether Skater Boy will be pleased with Patrick's dressing this time? Skater Boy, I think we have to contend with Patrick's limited wardrobe until he completes his studies and earn his own pay check!I think he looks damn good there, even with that pseudo 'stache. But what do I know, right, Skater Boy?
Gee, I hope the CS community is doing fine and the fire controllable. Bush fires are so common in Australia especially in summer and partly due to the fact that we love the bush and gum trees! I had an experience of driving along a highway when I came across fire on one side of the road. I really didn't know what to do so I drove past. Boy, it was scary ... very smokey. I swear I will never do it again! I remembered a huge fire in USA some many years ago .. somewhere in California? And it was partly due to gum trees. Gum trees contain high amount of oil so they burn and spread fire easily. We didn't understand its nature but our indigenous people (the Aborigines) in Australia did. They would burn trees every few years and wait for their rejuvenation otherwise if you allow them to burn themselves, the fire can be uncontrollable. Some many many years ago, the bush carpark (huge car park area with rows of gum trees) in my former workplace caught fire and my car was one of those 100+ cars 'barbequed'!Originally Posted by Olympia

Spiky D that must have been so scary. Fortunately in Toronto we dont have fires but do we have a lot of snow sometimes. One year we had to call in the army to help us remove the snow and the whole country called us wusses!
I too am so anxious to see what Patrick is doing. I pass by the cricket club where Wilson is every evening on the way home from work and I keep asking DH where I should crash the place. He is firmly discouraging.
Today I was home and spent my time watching Chan and V&M videos. I am thinking of going to the Thornhill skating as it is usually very close to where I live.
I spent almost two weeks without electricity and heat in a bungalow during the Great Ice Storm of Quebec. No fireplace either. I wouldn't go to the shelter without my dogs.
eta my snow story: Quite some years ago, after a major overnight snow storm, I cancelled an appointment and walked around to enjoy the snow scene. There were three young women shoveling away to free a car, which was a small snow mountain like all the others. After a while, one of them flagged down a snow truck to help. Then they started to clear the snow off the car and one of them cried out, "This is not my car!"
Ditch him, DH that is, for one day. Be a free woman!I too am so anxious to see what Patrick is doing. I pass by the cricket club where Wilson is every evening on the way home from work and I keep asking DH where I should crash the place. He is firmly discouraging.
Starting Canada Day early? We had the Quebec's National Day (Fete Nationale) a week before. July 1st is for moving.Today I was home and spent my time watching Chan and V&M videos. I am thinking of going to the Thornhill skating as it is usually very close to where I live.

I could nevery ditch DH even for a day! He pays all my bills including visits to GPF/ on ice at CSOI/Worlds next year etc etc. So I will be a good wife and fall in line.
Actually I had the day off in error - I thought that I had some appointments with doctor etc today. Stayed home and then realized it was actually nex t week - what a fool I am.
Ha, this is like my day today, but I wasn't the fool. A friend called me in the morning and reminded me of a luncheon which I didn't have on my agenda though there is one for tomorrow. He assured me of which one it was and asked me to take note for him for the next day's. So I took my usual 30 minute walk to the business club and saw him sitting outside so I asked what he was doing there. Well, he had to buy me lunch!Actually I had the day off in error - I thought that I had some appointments with doctor etc today. Stayed home and then realized it was actually nex t week - what a fool I am.
But Emdee, tell DH that you just want to test your detective skill? Unfortunately, I don't live in Toronto otherwise, we can masquerade as ice sweeper, electrician, AV technician or mobile ice cream seller into the rink to stalk Patrick or even David? Oh Emdee, you are our only hope to stalk Patrick or David.
BTW, I am sure Tu Ly knows since he has to 'research the costumes for Patrick'. Anyone knows Tu Ly well? Let's bribe him.
Alright, I better not laugh. It's not funny for the poor car owner.Originally Posted by Skatefiguring
Speaking of great winter story for the future grand kids, there was once a man knocking at my front door in his underwear early in the morning of one of the coldest New Year's Days! It was a semi commercial street and I lived in a century old Victorian townhouse with a deep garden but there was a small office building across the street. This guy had worked till late at night and slept in his office. Going to the restroom in the morning he locked himself out of his office. For some reason, I think looking for his partner he had called, he opened the front door to look outside and locked himself out of the building!
