    Happy Birthday Charlie! I'll have a drink to your good health and fortunes for this season!

    Also, love those pictures. Could Meryl be any more adorable?

    I think I've been unconsciensly deeply impressed and thinking about their performances. Last night I had a dream that Meryl the Giselle was a friend of mine and she looked absolutely breathtaking that I had some butterflies in my stomach even after I woke up! And I am a woman!

    They're playing the rhumba part of Davis and White's SD as background music in Skate Canada practice!

    I love this part of the season, when everyone's rolling out their programs. My only complaint is how long it will be until the next time we see Meryl and Charlie!

    Last night I dreamt they were doing their Notre-Dame FD to POTO and it made complete sense to everyone watching. I blame the costume color ahahhaa.

    So cute! I love their off ice pictures. Sometimes I do wish they were a couple...maybe when they retire :D. I'll never lose hope :p.

    I have a very similar pair that I purchased at Macy's.

    Meryl has such fabulous off ice style (as well as on) that I would love to raid her closet just once.

    The new boots were the first thing I noticed! She always has the best boots.

    For the first time ever, I woke up in time to watch D/W on the Today Show. :lol:

    They talked about this season, the upcoming Olympics, and the Classroom Champions thing. They then skated to a modified version of Die Fledermaus, Meryl in the blue costume.

    I'm glad D/W have their PR machine going right. Hopefully they can build it up so that by Sochi, they are some of the stars the US really watches and roots for (a la Michael Phelps?). It would also be great if they revive the sport in the US! No title sponsor for Stars on Ice last year was ridiculous!

    A bit late with my impressions about the FD. On the whole I do like the dance, although I still think that the music changes are too abrupt - probably they can do something about it to make them smoother. The new connection is nice, as are the many different holds. The only thing - I feel like there are too many of those little hops for Meryl. They've had them in other dances too, and they didn't bother me before, but now I am really noticing them, and it's a bit annoying. Possibly when the whole dance will become smoother, other things in there will make up for that.

    I have read from V/M fans that D/W are so concerned about equaling V/M's "chemistry" that D/W are forcing themselves into fake chemistry, which is a waste of time because they will never have the natural chemistry of V/M. In return D/W are letting their technical aspects slip, when V/M's technical ability + chemistry can never be matched. It is also the opinion of some V/M fans that their Carmen program is so heads-and-tails above D/W's program that the only way D/W can win is with a catastrophic mistake by V/M.

    What does everyone think about this? I'm a fan of dance but certainly not an expert to be judging nuances like this. Is it just bragging by fans or is it really something D/W need to be concerned about?

    I think people should wait until Carmen is actually performed before saying how unbeatable it is.

    Sounds like like a lot of delusional hoo-ha to me. :lol: That's exactly why I stay out of the V/M thread.
