Discussion in 'The Trash Can' started by Aussie Willy, Jan 3, 2012.
It has been a while. We need to lobby for her return. But who do we lobby?
I think this year it's more likely than last year that Patrick Chan will finish FORTH OR FIVTH AT WORLDS.
Only leis from Usova will bring esta back. Maybe she will blow smoke on her baby again, so esta will arise.
I am delighted to read an update about ESTA and look forward to reading more of the truth and leis of figure skating.
And gymnastics and all its vaults and faults.
A gem that I found online
That is awesome! Thanks for the link.
Wow that is awesome.
Fantastic journal. Pity it stopped in 2006. Love the picture of Eville Maya.
If we can find/post an article about Maya, maybe Esta will magically appear?
I love that ESTA turned on Kwan once she got touched by the black mark of Tarasova.
I remember watching a fan-cam gymnastics video of Svetlana Khorkina's 2001 Worlds FX, and the fans were totally making fun of ESTA and commenting with thick Russian accents.
"She is in good tecknikk."
"Judge Dancer will no retire Svetlana Khorkina."
I wonder who this judge dancer ESTA kept referring to was.
ESTA=enthusiastic Slovakian turtle aficionado? IDK, interesting idea that the letters mean something and the Estonian trolls one made me ROTFL!
Where is esta? This is how I picture it:
A dark room, lit only by candles and the glare from the 64” flatscreen TV mounted on one wall. G&P’s winning performances are playing in a continuous loop, interspersed with clips of Pasha’s Marilyn Monroe “imitation”. The other three walls are covered with Pashabilia, all framed for posterity: an autographed program; an array of publicity photos; a pair of Diva Pasha’s discarded tights…
As your eyes adjust to the gloom, you realize that there are 17 cats prowling over the furniture, and in the center of the room, sitting at a table, taking another shot of vodka before once more bending over her ouija board, is esta.
“WHEN WILL PASHA SAVE THE ICE DANCE?” she asks for the umpteenth time. And once again the answer is unclear. Another shot of vodka and then she raises her eyes to the TV screen just in time to catch Pasha cooing “Happy Birthday, Mr. President”. Esta sighs ecstactically as she watches and strokes the cat who has jumped into her lap. At the conclusion of the "performance" she lights an unfiltered cigarette and puffs away contemplatively.
I am sure Esta is still here, under her other user name. Probably someone that we would least expect to be her.
Ooh, looks like we have a sekret konspiracy on our hands!
Or ARE you? LOL
I could picture this a scene from an Ingmar Bergman film
Ah well, I suppose 1960 was a very long time ago.
As I recall, the secret to awakening ESTA is to start posting nice things about Maia Usova.
I fear that Post #23 in this very thread killed her off. It's a Puff the Magic Dragon sort of thing.
Does anyone know what Maia Usova is doing these days? Last time I heard anything about her, she married a doctor and had a baby. But that was quite a few years ago.
This may help out, for anyone who can read and speak Russian: http://mayiausova.narod.ru
Probably traded the baby by now for a carton of menthols.
ESTA, please come back and entertain us during the off-season!
This is a fan site, I think It hasn't been updated for 3 years. It does have great pics of Usova-Zhulin wedding and Ice age if you haven't seen it before. Was Maya at Socchi? I am still waiting for an Anastasia
I have an Esta id hunch...pure speculation.
