As much as I absolutely adore figure skating, I don't like people other than my family (because I've made them fall in love with it as well) finding out. Because figure skating is absolutely non-existing here (the only commentator in this country can't even tell the jumps apart and doesn't know the first thing about the IJS) so I am bound to be judged when they see it. But I will wait for the Olympics for some of my friends to start asking about it :laugh:


What you mean you'd be judged?! I'd think this is your chance to act like a big shot expert,doling out lectures and judgements yourself!

When the Olympics roll around, I'll be able to talk about it freely with everyone and act all know-it-all :laugh: I think at least a couple of friends might start asking me about it and who to look out for once it's close. :cool:
But for the time being, I'm perfectly content with all the interesting discussions we have over here, thank God for the internet :biggrin:

My Sister is in that movie. She's one of the Hair Dressers in the Bend and Snap scene. If you start the video at 2:00 minutes, My sister is the girl with the "Fake Orange Fro" who's working on Ell's friend Margo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-4tIs00NvM

I love that movie and the musical.

My confession - I stopped shaving my legs and just wait until I have to wear a dress for something. I feel incredibly lazy.

I also love instant coffee. Especially prepackaged 3 in 1's. I have anxiety and knowing my coffee will taste EXACTLY the same every day helps me start off relaxed.

:love: This forum never ceases to amaze. I remember back when we had a "stupid questions" thread I asked if anyone had flown in a Blimp Airship and wouldn't ya know it....someone had an uncle who was a pilot. I think I won the thread because it disappeared shortly after :slink:

Thanks for sharing.....I always love your tales by the way :yes:

Fear not, the thread lives on. It was moved to "Figure Skating References" and renamed as "Figure Skating Questions" (so any future ;) blimp questions will have to be posted elsewhere).

I do recall fondly :luv17: the blimp discussion that you prompted. Your question is on p. 155 of the thread. (It was el henry's father-in-law who was the blimp pilot.)
The thread now is 226 pages and counting ...

I'm watching Apollo 13. Again. For the eleventy-billionth time. (And every time, I still hold my breath when they go through re-entry).

I would totally have been one of those teenagers with a crush on the astronauts. Or better yet, Gene Kranz. Failure is not an option, indeed!

I haven't followed figure skating with any real interest since Weir and Lipinski became the lead commentary team on NBC. I don't even watch the pro shows. :no: I'm a bad fan.

Not wanting to listen to those two worthless babbling idiots does not make you a bad fan. :yes:

And I :love: that Paul Wylie skated to music from Apollo 13 in SOI!

I stopped watching Figure Skating exhibitions when they started using those annoying and distracting spotlights.

"LIKE" times a million...... I remember Champions on Ice when there was standard lighting and the skaters did real past performances...boy am I old.....

I went in a big fight with my family over watching Russian Nationals on Christmas Day on the TV. It was the first time the TV broadcasted this event so I was watching it.. But they had enough before the last group of ladies FS, so they demanded that turn off the TV. I went to my room and had to watch it with Russian commentary online. I haven't spoken to them for half a day tho. :curse::gaah:

We will be your new family. We understand......

The number of posts I have written and then deleted might be higher than the number of posts I have written and then actually posted :rolleye:

I will have an exam in the end of January, and today I could choose between two exam days-23rd and 30th Jan. I told them immediately that I want to go on the 23rd, but they were surprised I didn't choose the later one -:laugh2: I didn't make a confession that the last week of Jan. won't be ok for studying because I'll watch the Euros the whole week :biggrin:
