    I adore Brazilian food. :swoon: The Fish Stew sounds more appealing at the moment..

    My first crushes:
    Madonna, as in the film Dick Tracy or
    Hank Scorpio from The Simpsons


    I guess this explains why my romantic life is a mess. :(

    Madonna.

    No-nos:

    requesting dental coverage on your first date as a condition of continuing the relationship
    or
    letting a prospective boss in on your yen for chastisement during the interview (even worse if Mandy Patinkin shows up and starts singing)?

    St. George's Cathedral (I think I can see falling_fance peaking through one of those window(??) :eek:

    Which of my pupils will win the 2018 Winter Olympic Games? :encore:
    Anthea Corneo (her trademark move is a high kick and a 2 salchow-1toe-1toe-1toe-1toe-1toe-1toe-half loop-1 toe combination. Now she just needs to learn what skating skills are...)
    or
    Meredith Cocksedge (are we looking at the future Viktoria Pavuk of South Easy Bay Figure Skating??? Recently made it around the rink for the first time!! :cheer2:
    or
    Thomas Ediberry. His heroes, as listed on his USFS bio, are "Wonder Woman", when he grows up he hopes to be an "Archertext", and hobbies include "brownies".

    Miss Cocksedge will win the ladies' OGM, finishing ahead of Sakhanovich and Osmond. After failing to make the Olympic team in singles, Corneo and Ediberry will team up and win the silver, then a duplicate pair of golds, in ice dancing just four years later. US pairs will continue to languish in the bottom half of the top ten.

    On ice/carpet/lineoleum/hardwood surfaces, you spin

    clockwise
    or
    counterclockwise?

    Clockwise. Sumners, :sarah1:, Galindo, Kostner, Weir, and I are likethis.

    things that don't particularly bother me in skating:

    stiffness
    slow spinning (provided it's not that slow)
    the overuse of Scheherazade

    For transcendence and fascination, neither relationship could ever have compared to a nice bowl of pie.

    1) "Rosie", though I'm also fond of "Rose" and "Rosemary".
    2) Paulina.

    I'm a little on the speechless side after receiving a surpassingly lovely PM a short while ago, so I'll need a few minutes in which to come up with a new entry.

    Separate weddings, or just one big occasion?

    Skunk Anansie. Or Poly Styrene. Or Lora Logic.

    Apparently, my usual browser (Opera 12) isn't sufficiently up-to-date to access this page. Which one should I get?
