    I liked it better when I saw it a few weeks ago. Perhaps I was hopped up on sugar. Anyway, I told you in that post that I'm really Boris the Spider.

    I like V/M's Latin dance from 2011 Worlds and their Carmen from 2013 Worlds. I also like D/W's Samson et Dalila from 2009 Worlds and their Die Fledermaus, though I've forgotten which performance to it was the most polished. They were good.

    Why you asked me about ice dancing is one of the great mysteries of my profile page. :drama:

    Re #270, I'd rather dine in awkward semi-privacy in the first choice than have people fuss over me in the second.

    My parents just announced that they're showing up in a few weeks. Which place to take them?

    Michael Mina
    Gary Danko
    or some cheap Chinese place because they're going to b*tch about the first two being too expensive and not Chinese enough for them even though I'm paying for it :saint:

    Take them to Michael Mina and insist on ordering them the most sculptural menu items possible.

    Gordon Ramsay: yay or nay?

    Take them to a cheap Chinese place called "Jade Dragon", "Hunan Village", or something generic along those lines. :p

    How many intrusive french kids could you get through before socking one in the face?

    I was going to say that you'd committed the unpardonable crime of changing your mind, but I see that you merely said you thought it overrated, which still leaves room for liking it. :eek:

    Kostner's "Humoresque" SP.

    Skaters born today: Todd Eldredge or Yukari Nakano?

    Well, his ivy league sensibilities still nauseate me (sorry UMBS :p) but I liked his skating and liked the program. As a child I always thought he vaguely resembled Mr. Bean. :confused: Regardless, I was a total idiot jerkoff back then (as opposed to today, where I am only partially). I should thank you to remove that link immediately. :drama:

    Gorgeous Yukari. :smokin: As a young skate fan, I always thought Todd was the most repulsive thing ever. :scream:

    Revisiting Yukari's Firebird long program.
    A choreographic disaster.
    Surprisingly voidy for a skating warhorse.
    A masterpiece.
    A costly choice in an olympic season.

    Very good, but no "Giselle".

    first decade of competitive skating you actually find watchable, based on what you've seen up to this point:

    1870s :D
    1900s
    1910s
    1920s
    1930s
    1940s
    1950s
    1960s
    1970s
    1980s
    1990s
    2000s (You lie.)
    2010s

    I can't say I approve of his yellow kitchen but Monet's Garden seems lovely. Too much frilly stuff at Sissinghurst. :blah:
