Lol I'm sooo happy for Ashley I feel like crying & singing & dancing with joy and wild abandon!
Seriously, I've always said I felt she should've won 2008 Nationals (the best Nationals ever for Ladies imho; everybody skated their best & Mirai won). I just love everything she does, she's got it all, spins, jumps, artistry, presentation, speed, total command & confidence now (her hands didn't shake once!).
My favorite program of Ashley's though is the "Somewhere in Time" one by Rachmaninoff "Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini"....ahhh....choreography, costume, everything just exquisite. If she ever reprises an old program I wish it to be this one.
This makes up for the horrible dream I had this morning about G&S and Rockne getting into a plane crash (most likely due to my having watched "Final Destination" several nights ago).
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO AGNES & CAROLINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now there is a break I found this link on twitter for live feed, you need to download software but just in case, cause canada one freezes for me frequently.

Skate fans are just as prone to prejudging skaters based on their past performances. Ashley was great. Better than ever. I'd still have given it to Kanako, but I'm not a trained judge and I'm not there in person.
I didn't care so much for Mao's performance today, with her arm movements somewhat unnatural and rushed at times. Really like Murakami. So glad she recovered from her medical conditions yesterday and was able to put on a great performance.
I can't watch because I'm at work and have to finish a project.
Thanks for the play by plays.
go Cynthia!!! Rock it!!
What happens when you get nothing on Keyhole except message "Login timed out. Check your Network" ?
Great skating from the top 3. Great SP from Ashley best I have seen her skate. Kanaka was on tonight, Loved all three.
