    Sparks ignoring Ms. Dance because she's listening to Ashkenazy playing the Barcarolle. It is so amazing and makes Sparks' heart swell with love. ;)

    Mlle. Dance is in tears, having just told Sally-Ann Stapleford that she was pressured to cast her vote the other way. A second gold shall be awarded, with pancakes for all.

    Not into any of them, but Scott Hamilton = HOMOPHOBIC TROLL.

    Agenda for Wednesday, besides work:

    Soak in some sun
    Get a good run/walk in and breathe in some fresh air
    Watch the waves in the bay or the ocean
    Try to stay offline and away from TV sets
    Get in touch with old friends and tell them you love them and are proud of them
    All of the above :)

    purple have been to NC (to Salisbury one time, in fact, re: #461) but don't intend on going back there or anywhere in the South unless it's a brief weekend in FL or a quick connection through CLT just for airline miles' sake, to the extent US remains a UA partner :p

    San Jose, because of Kwan and Galindo's respective wins.

    Of the top four ladies' free skates at JGP Slovakia, I preferred Sakhanovich's by far.

    So did I.
    Chyld, you significantly underrate Karen Chen's skating.
    Chyld, you significantly underrate Alexandra Proklova's skating.
    Chyld, you significantly underrate Riona Kato's skating.
    Quit being fatuous, chyld.

    "Fasten your seatbelts, it's going to be a bumpy night!"
    "Remind me to tell you about the time I looked into the heart of an artichoke."
    purple from Shakespeare to Mankiewicz is a sad declension indeed

    Landslide, but I don't like either of them much. Sorry, Buzz. :shuffle:

    "Remind me to tell you about the time I looked into the heart of an artichoke." I've heard the other one too often.

    I could make a joke about that, but I know that you and Buzz have very delicate sensibilities.

    I like the Mars sunset very much, but if it were always the same, I'd choose Earthian sunsets for their colour and variety.

    I think Polonius has more "meat" on him. Or am I still thinking of Burger-In-Burger-Out?

    Three Shakespeare plays that I'm not very fond of:

    A Midsummer Night's Dream
    The Winter's Tale
    The Merchant of Venice

    I can't say Nay but that's mainly because I'm indifferent to the Harry Potter franchise.

    D/W's Scheherazade: yay, nay, indifferent/haven't seen it?
