    Meryl and Charlie are just so cool, hardworking, and uber-talented. They make me smile -- they are so fun to watch and such great people all around. Charlie has a wonderful sense of humor. Loved reading his blog, and his "morning pic" is hilarious. He was too cute when he said that "by the time the weekend rolls around, I don't know what to do with myself." Surely Tanith gives him some suggestions. ;)

    Ha! Charlie trying to sing and then dying laughing was great! And I love Danell and Gabby fighting over getting in the van. And Jeremy doing the least enthusiastic Gangnam Style ever.

    But Adam and Charlie doing the lift was definitely my favorite part. I love that they managed to get into that position but then couldn't get out of it.

    Glad the skaters and Gymnasts had fun together. Lol.

    Don't forget that Meryl and Charlie are on NBC in the Skating and Gymnastics spectacular right now if you are in the US and your NBC affiliate is actually showing instead of bull fighting or whatever it is they show...

    I'm definitely not in the US, but my NBC is doing relatively good. The amount of commercials is killing je, though.

    I love Meryl and Charlie, but my god that song is awful. It's definitely something made for 10 year old girls. Also, that rink is too small and awkward for two skaters. The whole thing is a bit painful to watch.

    I just realized there is a good chance I will be able to make the Ice Dance practice on Thursday (if it is true the practice will be open to the public). practice starts at noon and my flight arrives at 11:00. Now I am even MORE excited about going to Omaha.

    It looks like Charlie took Adele very seriously. :lol:

    Everyone seems to have had so much fun rehearsing and filming. I'm glad there was so much footage.

    As an aside, I am so ready to see Meryl and Charlie compete again! Although I'm getting my wisdom teeth out the morning of the SD. But still!

    Anyone wonder if they made more adjustments to the FD? Does it, in anyone's opinion, need any more choreographic adjustments? I've really loved watching the evolution. Each change has been breathtaking. (I may still be going crazy over the bells.)

    D/W's group is about to practice. They're in FD costumes. Charlie's shirt looks tighter.

    They changed the part with the little hops before the circ steps. Now they're in like spiral positions facing each other and gliding along one side of the rink. It's really pretty! I took a video and will upload as soon as I can between events!

    I thought the tighter shirt meant he has really muscled up.

    I think it means they're starting a campaign to rub our noses in their fitness level. Typical Meryl and Charlie. Always campaigning about something.

    I like what I hear so far! Those hop steps before the circ step always seemed like pure filler to me :shuffle: (I don't understand all the hopping in this FD, truth be told), so I'm excited for this change. Matching spiral positions sounds like it'll be a beautiful moment.

    :lol:

    I thought it meant they'd taken in the shirt. There was something off about the fitting before to me.

    Perhaps they'll put out an article about how people have been criticizing their fitness level and they don't really know Charlie? ;)

    Typical Meryl and Charlie, always stealing everyone else's style. Go back to being fat slobs with no connection :mitchell:

    I'm sure it does mean they've taken in the shirt. But what does reality have to do with made up internet rumors?

    And Charlie had his SD shirt altered to make it tighter last year. They even copy themselves!

    So glad I got to see them practice today. I especially noticed that he was very protective of Meryl on the ice. Made me love Charlie even more (if possible). Three times I saw him stand in front of her or block her when others practicing came near. Very nice touch.

    Aww, that's sweet (although the cynical part of me wonders if this is some psychological strategy created by Marina :p). Thanks for the report!

    Back from pairs SP and the practice video is STILL uploading to Picasa. If I'd been able to use YouTube it would be up by now, but I don't want it to get deleted again. :mad: Hope it will be done uploading by the time I get back from dinner!
