    Kwanita Rhinestone: Excuse me, f_d, but don't you have two astrology books and a (largely pictorial) hagiography of Barbra Streisand in your room right now? :D
    Me: Shut up, shut up, shut up! :mad:
    Kwanita R: If you were going to give anyone the gift of Thomas Friedman's wisdom, you should've stolen it first. :rolleyes:
    Me: Why does everything have to be a contest?! :angryfire

    And so on and so forth...

    You're right. I'm clueless as to "What does everything have to be a contest?!" even thinks it means. :eek:

    1. War And Peace. I don't even remember how many times I've read this book!
    2. Three Sisters
    3. I've always adored K/O's Carmen but I think if V/M skates their routine with more polish and effortlessness, that'll be my Carmen for-ever. Katarina's Carmen will always remain iconic in figure skating history book but I don't see any particularly great in terms of skating skills or choreography. It was all Katarina who breathed the program. And I love Yuna, but she wasn't displaying "it" factor she owns now in that Carmen at all which shows how much she improved as time went by.

    Who is more hated?
    A guy who works for IRS
    A lawyer
    or
    An ISU official:rolleyes:

    I can't think of any better way to keep my earnings safe than taking on Russian citizenship.

    It's not the sort of thing I can agree or disagree with--he has a legal right of emigration--but it's not something I'd do in his position.

    Captain January

    "General January"?

    A Little Princess. Of those listed (which I haven't seen), Mandalay sounds like the best bet.
