    Yuka.

    Why is it Sioux-daddy's favorite music?
    - he's a hopeless romantic
    - it makes for great skating programs
    - he secretly wants to be Liberace

    Liz Taylor is not his style
    And even Liberace's smile
    Is something he can't see
    Is something he can't see
    I wonder what's wrong with baby
    My baby just cares for
    My baby just cares for
    My baby just cares for me


    Definitely one and two. :p

    Perhaps he's the reincarnation of Liberace, despite having been born several months before the latter died.

    I have literally nothing in common with Liberace. :lynch:

    It can take lifetimes for a spirit to find a new body. Thats what ghosts are. :)

    Of course the best solution is to dissolve ones contracted consciousness into the cosmos and end rebirth drama altogether. :drama: :inavoid:

    Would you rather work as a coach or a choreographer?

    Choreographer, though my Volozhinskaya-wannabe tendencies would lead to the creation of routines like this one.

    The better artistic skater, most likely:

    Kate Bush
    or
    Crispin Glover?

    ZOMG I haven't seen that in years! :swoon:

    Kate would have been a brilliant skater. Crispin Glover isn't too far from Lycacek.

    I usually blend my own coffee. :swoon:

    Same question.

    I think he'd take it to a whole other level, though.

    Have some coffee at home in the morning, but at no other time or place.

    Happy Mole Day!

    With age your sweet-tooth has:
    declined.
    increased.
    stayed level
    stayed roughly the same, though your tastes have changed
    never had one to begin with.

    90% genuine anger, although today's news reports indicate that some (but not all) of the spying was indeed European spying that was merely shared with the NSA, so 10% faux outrage.
