...you dragged your boyfriend to so many figure skating competitions and shows that he can distinguish between an Axel and the other jumps and knows that quads are "really hard". To this day though, he remains most impressed by Tomas Verner doing a very fast upright double-footed spin at a show in Bratislava (at the same show, Michal Brezina was jumping triple Axels right in front of us).

You have had it with work, commitments etc and the only thing you feel like doing is browsing goldenskate and watching figure skating videos
I agree!! With a new computer system at the hospital on top of the endlessly growing corona epidemic (masks people please!) and the US election, all I want to do is put my headphone on and watch skating and put the rest of the world on pause. Since I lost a lot of my copies recently, that means there will be more lists coming...2013-present. See video request thread for details...

...when you watch a celebrity edition of the quiz show "Pointless", and during the head-to-head round there is one of those questions where they play clips of music. The theme was that all songs were co-written by Cathy Dennis, and the players (who had all been in sitcoms) had to guess who sung them. So we had:

  1. Kylie Minogue - "Can't Get You Out Of My Head"
  2. S Club 7 - "Never Had A Dream Come True"
  3. Diana Vickers - "Once"
  4. Katy Perry - "I Kissed A Girl"
  5. Britney Spears - "Toxic"

And as soon as one of the clips starts playing, you start picturing this:

(I was actually looking for the first time we saw this but, unfortunately, the earlier performances of it are no longer on YouTube 😞 ).

When you buy a Roku on Black Friday just so you can stream NBC Peacock onto your TV. And big bonus - I love the Roku so much more than the Firestick. I don’t even use the Firestick any more.

When you watch shows like Battle of the Blades, P.J. Kwong's podcasts, That Figure Skating Show hosted by Dylan Moscovitch and Asher Hill. Also when you have a figure skating App on your phone.

When you re watch footage on Youtube of your past favourite FS champions like Karen Magnussen or Toller Cranston, even though the videos are grainy and sound quality is lacking, but you appreciate their amazing skating skills.
