    1. Chen. "sumptuous presentation" :swoon:
    2. Probably. Has it been a little out of the ordinary? :watch: Do tell.

    What is your most sensitive sense?
    sight
    smell
    hearing
    touch
    taste
    sixth

    My senses are fairly dull. I have horrible stygmatism (I'm like a Cyclops). I can't detect the smell of dog urine in my bedroom apparently, according to my mom. I have a freakishly high pain tolerance. My taste buds don't stir in response to many subtle foods (I put hot sauce on everything.) And my hearing can only be described as "senile". :shuffle: My sixth sense is much stronger than most people, however, though this deserves a post of its own at some point...

    Taste. Not because it's sharp, but because the others are so dull.

    It would depend on the season. :D

    Kim skating to "Mr Blue Sky"
    Chen skating "Can't Get It out of My Head"
    Kwan skating to "Strange Magic"
    purple no, f_d, the Pielady is the Queen

    The super-final would be a skate-off to "Nellie Takes Her Bow", every edit of which would be required to include the instrumental section that sounds just like "God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen".

    Vampires (Specifically, the Volturi.)

    Kids doing even relatively simple pairs maneuvers: :yikes: (Of course, that could be my ignorance talking.)

    In the 1960s:

    pairs
    ladies
    men
    dance

    They're all horrid - I'd rather put a charred vegetable by the kitchen window :mad:

    1. What sort of tarts do you like?
    Jam tarts
    Pop tarts
    Inane tarts
    Purple sugary tarts

    2. What is Patrick Chan's connection to autumn?
    His birthday's in October
    He likes walking through the crunchy fallen leaves (the leaves have fallen, I said :mad:)
    In his programmes, he always falls over a lot, and the season starts in autumn

    :lol:

    1) Jam tarts. Inane tarts seem to multiply as one consumes them. :yikes:
    2) Patrick Chan is a fanatical admirer of the poetry, correspondence, and whist-playing of John Keats. As far as he's concerned, October 31 is Keatsmas, and the festivities just keep going on from there until about ten days before his own birthday.

    1)

    Assuming that two of the US ladies' spots will go to Wagner and Gold, you'd most like to see the third spot go to

    Gao
    Nagasu
    Czisny
    Hicks
    Zhang
    Siraj
    Wang
    Baga
    Cesario
    Miller
    Flatt
    The USFSA should give up that spot :D
    purple refusal to accept my assumption/presumption :mad:

    2) How bad is my location?

    awful
    horrendous
    unutterably vile

    Did I say John Keats? I meant Barbara Bel Geddes. I get my October 31 people mixed. :shuffle: :eek:

    1) Oscar Wilde.
    2) Tolstoy, even if his amanuensis wife wasn't famously fragrant.

    Thomas Hardy or Maeve Binchy?
