Watching the European championships live from Budapest at 3 A.M. in Kentucky...
Is that obsessed?
I left work early and got into trouble just to watch GPF on TV and I already knew the results
...And I do understand skipping an organic chemistry class to watch an event is not good but I did it anyways.
IMO, leaving work early or skipping organic chem to watch an FS event are both perfectly logical. Then again, this is a thread re: being obsessed w/ FS. Which means that logic isn't exactly a priority...
I figure as long as nobody is stalking anyone or otherwise turning into Hannibal Lecter, it's all good.
Yup...that, too!Ahem, to that I'll add for a while I thought MK Blades were named after Michelle. The MK actually stands for Mitchel & King, though I still like to think they stand for the Kween.
If you come up with a complete guide to fixing the scoring system as Blades of Passion did in another thread.
I have started to refer to a major Hollywood movie star as "Yulia Roberts".
The times I've stayed up until 6am watching events across the globe are too numerous to name, but this is the first year my friends caught on in all the post-Sochi madness, and I even convinced them watching the gala live on their laptops was a good move.
'Let me guess, you stayed up until sunrise watching skating and slept in?' -an actual text a friend sent to me when I slept until noon after Worlds this year
You discover via Twitter or Instagram that a skater who you're a fan of is vacationing in the same city in which you live, and you immediately freak out and hope that you'll somehow run into them
Totally by serendipity, on a random local sidewalk, I found myself a few feet away from one of my favorite skaters. I was aware from his social media that he was in the general region for a couple of SOI and other appearances, but I never would have dreamed that I would have a chance sighting.
He happened to be roaming around by himself on a day off, and he graciously stopped for a not-so-brief one-on-one conversation. A surreal and thoroughly enjoyable encounter for me.
