    I go with gluttony. If you have to sin, then why not do it on a full tummy! :lol:


    If you could, would you travel to Sochi for the Olympics given the currently ant-gay laws and crackdown on immigrants?

    YES
    or
    NO

    CRACKDOWN ON IMMIGRANTS????? :eek: That NEVER happens in North America :drama: :rolleyes: There's plenty of bullshit, fascist laws and policies in place in both Canada and the U.S. So yes. I'd pack a pocket knife and iron knuckles just in case though. Putin can eat dog shit.

    "убить всех сейчас. Потворствовать убийстве первой степени".

    Oh, you were asking about employment. I'd rather be self-employed.

    The Far Side: yay or nay?

    Scott Hamilton? I watched the beginning as I lay on my belly getting fat off Thai food. But it got boring so I went outside to pick tomatoes and bathe the dogs.

    did you?

    1) I listened to it on and off while looking at other websites.
    2) Abbott or Verner in the lead role, depending on who has the more miserable Olympic season. Of course, I suppose that one could tour in North America, the other in Europe, and then there could be a coin-toss to the death for the shows in China, Japan, and South Korea. Kostner would do a fine job as the dead-and-loving-it Harriet Smithson. I'm not sure about the remainder of the cast but accept that a troupe of actual trout is not an option.

    wind chimes: yay or nay?

    Too slow.

    Moments in figure skating history:
    1. Sarah Hughes successfully detects the booby trap planted by team Kwan. :eek:
    2. Jeff Buttle gives a touching homage to Kurt Browning's Olympic track record for his 2006 Olympic SP.
    3. Surya Bonaly brings back her masterful signature piece, Vivaldi's Four Seasons, the 1998 Olympics.
    4. Lepisto's false start and sexy bitchslapping the ref to give her a do-over before her 2010 Olympic LP.
    5. Chaplin Nagasu smashes into the boards during 2009 nationals

    Do you think that some pieces of music should be retired unofficially in the seasons after iconic performances to them?

    non

    No. I was :lynch: at Kostner, Abbott, V/M, and even Mao for going for Bolero, A Day in the Life, Carmen, and Swan Lake respectively. Yet those are four of my favorite programs ever...

    your thoughts?

    Well, who is to decide whether or not a performance is iconic? If I go into a whirl of raw sexual love fetishes :grope: when I see Isabelle Pielady skate to a medley of the Electric Light Orchestra's greatest hits, can I campaign to have this profoundly moving and intensely sensual :swoon: music "retired unofficially"? And if not, why not? Well? :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: :mad:

    We're now into the second half of August. So I'm afraid these are the only choices open to me:

    Snow
    Rain
    Fog
    Gales
    Ice

    I think that perhaps you're being a tad disingenuous, Mr. Donym. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gale :oksana1: :insertsrandomvisualisationofoksanabaiul:

    Psychic powers is too vague a description, and I have no interest in blowing things up except for my neighbour's lawnmower, so I'll go for flight. Like a Lark Ascending, perhaps. :)

    1. If Kim, Kwan, and Chen were all the same nationality - let's say they're all from Paraguay - which would you like best? But if you say Kwan I won't believe you. :p

    2. It's 2.30am. Should I go to bed now?

    Yes
    Yes
    Yes
    Yes
    Yes
    Yes
    Probably. Has today been a little out of the ordinary for some reason? :) :sekret: or perhaps no :sekret:
