    Leigh was superb. I can't imagine that Davis would have been better.

    Max Steiner: yay or nay?

    On visiting the site, I think I'd like the Avocado Cucumber Maki and Sweet Potato Nigiri the best. Of those listed, the spinach and bean quesadillas have the most appeal.

    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?

    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 :dog:-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.

    Saint Rose of Lima
    Odilon Redon

    Joan Miró
    George Takei
    Ryan O'Neal
    Edie Sedgwick
    Veronica Cartwright
    Toller Cranston
    Jessica Lange
    Luther Vandross
    Crispin Glover
    Rosalynn Sumners (same day as Glover, which tickles me, though it means nothing)
    Joey Lawrence

    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 :drama:

    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.
    2) Chaplin.

    simply as a program:

    Ten's The Artist
    or
    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.

    1. Unlikely I'd say, but you never know with Alena.
    2. Hummus

    The use of Bute and Slute as diminutives for two of the finest skaters to come out of Russia?

    Somewhat irritating
    Mildly irritating
    Not irritating at all - I use them all the time

    I just hope Andrew Burnett won't sue me for posting in this thread that he sucks.
