And did you see the recipe for Charlie's smoothie? Not clipping that one!
This quote from Charlie cracked me up because it's so true. I say it all the time!
Yes, "the Moms" are two terrific ladies, so friendly and appreciative to Meryl and Charlie's fans. Love how much they support them, too, I know that has been such a bonus for their career as well as their lives off the ice. And let me say "the Dads" are pretty awesome, too!
It sounds like it would taste really chalky.
New video up from their classroom series. This one is about fair play.
They give some great messages, and you have to watch all the way through to see this amazingness.
Meryl looks more into it than Charlie.
Finally a chance to see Meryl getting her Gangnam on! I still regret not trying to film her doing it at SA but she appeared magically at the far end of my row and I am short so it would mostly have been footage of all the tall people next to me and Charlie's head looking studious with his glasses on.
Well, it is called Short and Long Program in all other disciplines, so given all the rules COP has imposed on the Free Dance it might be a good idea naming it Long Dance since it's not really "free" anymore.
I love when you get a chance to see Meryl cut loose. She's got this mischievous streak that comes through that's just great.
I love that they used the clip from 2009 Worlds K&C to demonstrate "fair play". A great example of their sportsmanship which they have demonstrated more than once through the years.
I love Meryl's mischievous streak, too!
That was a very good lesson . That song makes my ears bleed Meryl's definitely much more into it
A great video, especially Charlie's line: "How you act when you win or lose says a lot about you." That clip, with someone yelling "That's too low" and Meryl shushing the audience, always gets me.
Finally, gangnam style!!
Yeah, she definitely had the better moves to that piece and looked like she was really enjoying herself.
And so it begins!

I'm getting all nostalgic about GPF in Quebec last year. I wish it was in North America more often!
You have Worlds this year and Four Continents last year and...come on, you need to share.
I've packed my bag, leaving to Sochi tomorrow...
Happy for you, Piper! Have a great time and please give us any reports on all the fun!
Wonder how many 10's we'll see all together with their programs at grand prix final?
Thread drift..I was looking around for info about Sochi and to see if I could find any practice reports and stumbled upon this Olympic Trivia page on Tumblr. It has some really neat pics of current and past olympics.
I so cannot wait until Sochi. Except for the fact that it will probably be the end of some great teams.
A couple pictures of D/W during Wed practice here.
Thank you! Weather is wonderful here, the Palace is incredibly beautiful.))
Waiting for SD tomorrow.
Nooooo I won't be able to watch it live whaaaa stupid school!!
I'm so sad that only part of the pre GPF teleconference is up on IN. It cuts off after 5 minutes.
Me, either! waaa...I'll be at work. Good luck, Meryl and Charlie!!!!
I know it's a ways off, but the fact that everyone is in Sochi right now makes me anxious for the Olympics. Lol I'm such an Olympics nerd, I get so excited for them so far in advance And I'm sure that D/W have an idea of what they'd like to do for next season (as most teams do most likely), and I can't wait to find out (even though we have a year of waiting to do hahaha).
Again, thinking way too far in advance, but Sochi is doing it to me hahah. Next season I really hope they have an FD that is a true marriage of power and elegance, something that harnesses a quiet power. I always say I'd love to see them use a classical piece (a la Beethoven, lol) and I think the Olympic season would be the perfect time to pair classical music...to something more modern and intricate in choreography. Notre Dame is a good step in that direction IMO, and it can only continue to grow over the rest of the season. I love the result of working with Alex Wong, and I hope they seriously considering calling him in a few more times before Worlds. Hey, I even vote for him to choreograph their Olympic FD!
Anyone else up and watching? (Well technically I'm probably in one of the earliest time zones and you all have probably been up and about for hours, but you know what I mean )
Yay Meryl and Charlie improved on their season's best and are sitting in first. I'm really itching to see the judges score posted, I want to see where they improved (since it all looks brilliant to my simple eye).
