    Thank you to you, too, Mathman.

    While I appreciate that you are trying to comfort me that I did not make a complete mistake, sorry to say this, but you are also giving me a hard time... I have already read your post twice, and still scratching my head trying to thoroughfully understand it.
    It's close to midnight in my time, so let me try it tomorrow morning again when my head is fresh and clear!

    I will try again. "If I had been there, I would not have cared." Impeccable grammar but kind of blah.

    What you want to say is, "OMG, if only, somehow, beyond the uttermost reach of my fondest dreams, I could have been so lucky as to have had a chance to be there, I wouldn't have cared if the sky fell on my head!!!!!!"

    So you want the construction "If I ever could..." to serve that function. Does it?

    Yes, I think so. "Ever" means "at some point in the infinite stretch of time." By extension, in a sentence like "How did you ever guess?" it means, "Within the infinite continuum of possible ways that a person might find out something, which one did you light upon?"

    So what the phrase "if I ever could have..." communicates is something like, "among the continuum of possible circumstances that might have occurred that would have resulted in me being there, oh, if only one such actually had occurred..."

    Forgive Mathman, Deedee. He can't help it. He's a Gemini.

    Now I can understand it much better. You are the sweetest person on GS forum! Thanks. Had a good laugh Monday morning.

    btw, are you really a Gemini, Mathman?
    Let me guess SkateFiguring's: you are a Leo, ...or a Virgo!, aren't you?
    And Olympia... must be a Libra or a Taurus!

    eta. I think Mathman is part Gemini. Or else he would be Mathmen.

    AFAIR, Mathman has the same birthday I do, March 28th; so if my memory is correct, we are both Aries.

    No. But I forgive you, because it is my utmost honor to be included as the same sign as Olympia! (...if it's true, of course lol)

    If you click on "calendar" at the top of the page you can see everyone's birthday (at least the birthday that they claimed when they registered ) -- provided that the member clicked "show birthday" when he or she registered.

    But never mind about signs, does anyone want to guess deedee1's ketsueki-gata?

    Mao Asada's is B: She is wild, active, creative, passionate, and strong.

    OK Deedee, you are the same sign as your favorite skater, a Pisces.

    I think I at least got the element right. Toni, a fire sign, blue dog, earth sign, kwanfan and MM are of air signs.

    Oh I see Mathman revealed the calendar so there is no fun guessing signs now.

    No. But I admit I tend be falling in love with a Pisces since I was a little girl!
