    Thank you, though I should apologize. I probably shouldn't have added the word "late", not because it isn't true, but because he passed away in 1988.

    Respect for the ShibSibs! :mitchell:

    ladies

    You can save only one (and you're under orders to save at least one):

    Conrad Black
    Piers Morgan
    Rupert Murdoch

    I'm just mean.

    Amusement, except in the case of certain skaters, in which case he'd be :swoon:. I mean, one of his compositions involves the use of a cannon, so I wouldn't expect a Boulez-listening-to-the-Leningrad kind of response.

    Just a guess.

    1) Nathalie or Natalia?

    2) Willa or Wilhelmina?

    3) Mathilde or Matilda?

    Oui (and oui to the previous question.)

    What is the most appropriate smiley for Irina Slutskaya (excepting the one that actually depicts her) ?

    :biggrinbo, on account of her jumping ability and fluff segments like this one.

    Also, :2faced:, not because I think she's two-faced, but because I wouldn't want to be her enemy. That's not a bad thing.

    In general...

    Slutskaya's short programs
    or
    her free skates?

    :) Also, "Claire" is a beautiful name. It beats the hell out of "Kathryn".

    Purple shouldn't be an impossible question for me to answer without breaking all-known records for phony cultivation, but which, sadly, is.
