I. If you could have watched any Olympic Event live....
Salt Lake City
II. Which discipline?
III. Which event?
The ladies' free skate in Nagano.
Might as well repeat...
1994 ladies LP or 2010 mens SP
Unfortunate book titles here
Pooh Gets S****
John Candy or Steve Martin?
Why did you **** Stuck
Monty Python’s Flying Circus
Are You Being Served
Best Rowan Atkinson comedy?
The Thin Blue Line
Not the Nine O'Clock News
I don't really like him much, but Blackadder was good.
If she had competed at a different time to Michelle Kwan, would Irina Slutskaya get so many "truck driver" insults?
Products sold on TV:
No! No! Hair
Furby Hot & Cool
Green bean coffee
1) Yes. While I have my own criticisms of Slutskaya's skating--as I do of any skater, even one of my favorites--I've yet to read a post with that phrase in it that struck me as persuasive, relatively free of mind-dead conformism to the prevailing gender ideology, or written in good faith./end stuck-up -ery. ETA: Well, the bad faith accusation might be a bit much.
2) Nutri Bullet is one of the funniest product names I've ever encountered.
April 20 spawn:
Saint Rose of Lima
Rosalynn Sumners (same day as Glover, which tickles me, though it means nothing)
ETA: Joan Miro, easily. Toller Cranston was a big bitch and I doubt I'd get along with him. I give Jessica Lange and Crispin Glover a tie for silver. Edie Sedgwick can have bronze, she paid her dues by dying. Ryan O'Neal gets a DQ.
Nay, Slute would have looked masterful next to Kat Witt.
Top 10 Reasons I hate all the Russian babies
1. They all look exactly the same, I can't tell them apart.
2. They're gangly.
3. They'll all need hip surgery by 19.
4. Two foot skating.
5. UGLY jumps. A triple lutz should look like this, not this.
6. tacky costumes
7. no ice coverage
8. mean looking coaches
9. there's just too many of them
10. No Stahs
You are missing the "All of the above" option!
1) It was a relief to read #4, #5, and especially #7 on your list, though I still like Tuktamysheva and some of the middle-of-the-pack ladies (Stavitskaia, Gerasimova, Agafonova, and Gosviani). ETA: Sakhanovich and Sotskova aren't so bad for their respective ages.
simply as a program:
Ten's The Artist
Chan's La Boheme?
ETA: I really am awful this morning (EST). Please forgive me and watch this video of big cats playing with cardboard boxes. Choose a favorite if you like.
Leonova qualifying for Sochi 2014 - likely or unlikely?
1. Unlikely I'd say, but you never know with Alena.
The use of Bute and Slute as diminutives for two of the finest skaters to come out of Russia?
Not irritating at all - I use them all the time
Batman vs. Batman
Disabled vs. Disney
Andrew Burnett vs. Dog Owner
Wanita Young vs. Free Cookies
Homeless Man vs. His Parents
William Baxter vs. His Wifes Cat
I just hope Andrew Burnett won't sue me for posting in this thread that he sucks.
clavinets, mellotrons, waah-waah pedals, or keytars?
Pearson vs. Chung. I understand "mental distress", but $67m for a pair of trousers is at least $1m too high.
The homeless man is rather
Can I summon up the energy to go for a brisk walk?
Walk? You've got to run
Of course you can - don't be so wet
It might be nice, in the English spring
There are rather a lot of hills
Stay inside with FSU and don't feel guilty
It might be nice, in the English spring and then you can stay inside with FSU and don't feel guilty.
Water. Or cranberry juice.
I don't think you should feel guilty about staying in today, orientalplane. Google says it's a bit chilly where you are.
Which of these colors cheers you up the most (if at all)?
thistle (or lavender)
purple refusal of this limited palette
Florica Danica is the world's most expensive dinnerware at about $1500 and up a piece.
Are you crazy?!
Yay, only because I would've thought that there'd be some horrible, jewel-encrusted platinum set selling at $15,000 apiece, which would be the subject of a Daily Mail story that would spawn threads on fora all across the Internet.
Do you own a tea service?
put a spoonful of sugar in it, nosy
Colgate dinner entree
Dumbbell Eating Utensils
Wonder Sauna Inflatable Pants
"Kush Support” Breast Separator
Jar Jar Binks - YAY or NAY?
Star Wars new coming trilogy wants to hire the stars of the original trilogy.

Which would you rather be?
Roger Ebert or Pauline Kael or James Agee?
Chicken fillet sandwich
Fish fillet sandwich
Is there enough material in The Hobbit for the book to be made into three quality films?
purpleGollumBurger (I haven't read it)
Old lady names:
You know you're being perverse, so I refuse to answer. In any case names are cyclical; most of those you list have come back into fashion, or never went out.
LOL @ Orientalplane
Did Mantauk Air Force Station once house a Time Tunnel - Yes or No?
Are you happy with your weight?
Separate names with a comma.
