    Yup! Although in PA, we're got to get rid of our governor (Tom Corbett), because he's been killing public education across the state! If he had his way, every school would become a charter school.

    1/1....

    Also:

    - your mood for the entire day is directly influenced by how your skaters skate
    - you started skating because of your favourite skater
    - your web browser bookmarks are 90% skating related (or more)
    - you check for skating news on your breaks at work...

    this, as well as the people you follow on Twitter who only speak Russian...you have learned Cyrillic through osmosis (the vocab & grammar are another story)

    I only got 4. But I think what pushes me over the edge is that when my neighbors are choosing to be "high-volume" at midnight, I replay some of my favorite calming skating programs in my head

    I can totally relate to the learning Cyrillic through osmosis comment! I'm not on Twitter, so in my case, it was mainly through looking at results for Russian Nationals!

    But, I have lots of Russian and Ukrainian contacts on Facebook, and I am on the Russian social networking site vKontakte, so I get lots of practice in attempting to read Cyrillic messages (with varying levels of success! )

    A few days ago, I bought a Russian desk medal on eBay. I knew from the item description that it was to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the foundation of the Udmurt ASSR. But, it arrived today. And the scary thing is, I can read nearly everything on it!

    Mind you, I wouldn't even attempt to actually write something in Cyrillic on my own!

    Hey, I spent 3 years at school learning German, and I never got the hang of the grammar. And it didn't have the added complication of using a different alphabet!

    Well, posting in GS forum in the middle of June is an indication that needs no comments
    I think I can beat my personal obsession record by posting here (complaints about refs) during the soccer WC.

    About the original article:
    You don’t trust any sports that don’t involve glitter.
    This one is priceless!

    I can read all my faves' names in cyrillic. I got Plushenko first, but I can also read Gachinski, Menshov and Voronov now. Still working on the others.

    I grew up in PA. Haven't been following the gov race there (nor Rhode Island ) & was dismayed to see your post re: pub educ. Very upsetting.
