    1997 (those were great programs -- she definitely should have won; plus she did win the fp) :saint: In 1999, MK was under the weather but still skated well, it was just Maria's year; in 2002, MK still skated great, it was just Irina's time to win; in 1997, TL was the wunderkind the judges wanted to win ;)

    Out of Africa. I just love their flawless performance to it at 2009 Skate Canada.

    Arthur Rackham or Aubrey Beardsley?

    Like MK, I think PURPLE is the color for me. :)

    I love watching everything S/S and S do on the ice. I think the above list is my favorite programs of theirs in order, altho' upon further reflection, I'd probably put The Mission on top, then Pina, and I'd move Out of Africa up a bit more. I have an idea for a program for S/S for the Olympic year, but I can't speak or write German. :( That's a verrry difficult language, even tho' I studied it a bit in college. I would love to see them skate in person and have the chance to meet them. I know Robin speaks excellent English. I did meet Ingo once, but it was well before he began coaching. Ingo seemed a very friendly, cool guy; he smiled a lot and was eager to engage with fans even tho' his English wasn't perfect. :)

    Favorite Languages:

    French
    Spanish
    English
    Arabic
    Japanese
    Portuguese
    Italian
    Russian
    Swedish
    American Sign Language

    German and Chinese are way too difficult (at least for me :shuffle:)

    Would you care for some cat food? :2faced:

    Hmmm, if I was starving to death, sure I could eat cat food, but only the healthy kind with people grade ingredients, eh. I'll pass up the watery meat by-product mess sold in supermarkets and the dry pebbles, which aren't any good for cats either. BTW, little cats and big cats are obligate carnivores ... :2faced:

    I love sweet potatoes and white potatoes, but sweet potatoes are healthier

    Sweet potato casserole with spices, raisins and apples; sweet potato pie, french-fried sweet potatoes

    Scallops

    Tilapia

    - I love it!
    - I can live with it.
    - I'm like Munch's screamer.
