    *nervous* I'm new here. Hi.
    Welcome, Pink Feathers! Funny, funny, funny especially your 1, 2, and 3 selections. Hopefully, Jeremy will rewrite his Redemption script and perform to the extraordinary level of his talent more consistently.

    I do have a soft spot for Priscilla Hill, and I think she is an excellent coach in many ways, especially on the technical side. There are reports alas, that perhaps she has some limitations in helping skaters deal with the emotional and strategic aspects of the sport. I always loved seeing Priscilla (and her costume coordinating) with Johnny Weir in the kiss n' cry. It was nice seeing Priscilla with Victor Pfeiffer at Worlds too. Victor is a lovely skater to watch with his lyrical grace.

    Anyway, in this off-season bookstore, it seems that anything goes! The season was a wild and crazy ride, so the off-season literature must surely tell it like it is/ was.

    On that note:

    Partings Sweet and Sour, by Caydee Denney, John Coughlin, Jeremy Barrett, Caitlin Yankowskas, Joshua Reagan, Ashley Cain, Taylor Toth, and Felicia Zhang (loads of skaters and coaches wanted to write Forward/ Afterward, but the multiple authors already had enough/ too much to say, so they declined including additional commentary)

    Quad Heaven: I Told You So, Part Deux, by Evgeni (Quad King) Plushenko [A special conference to discuss this tome is being planned by caseyedwards, with Patrick Chan rumored to be tapped to give the keynote address -- and Elvis Stojko has agreed to lead a panel discussion]

    Staying Together Through Thick and Thin, by Mark Ladwig and Amanda Evora, Foreword by Tai Babilonia & Randy Gardner, and Afterword by Mark Ladwig

    The Wondrous Benefits of Pie AND Cake, by The U.S. Skating Federation, featuring major profiles on Joshua Farris and Jason Brown, with Foreword by Frank Carroll and Afterword by Johnny Weir and Evan Lysacek

    How to Channel the Honey Badger Within, by Keegan Messing, Foreword by Ralph Burghart and Rory Flack Burghart (favorably reviewed by Johnny Weir)

    MAC Magic: Fire and Ice Makeup Tips for Ladies Figure Skaters, by Johnny Weir, Foreword by Tessa Virtue and Meryl Davis (preordered by Caydee Denney, Aliona Savchenko, and countless other ladies and men ... skaters and non-skaters alike, eligible, professional, retired, you name it )

    Johnny I hope it's edible glitter!

    Definitely Janet Lynn should write the Foreword for Alissa's titled tome

    Maybe some of the faces Scott makes are "horrid," but his spur of the moment 'I'm not feeling this' misuse of words was "horrors" more in the aftermath politically and pr-wise, perhaps b/c it was caught on camera and microphone (wonder if the unfortunate utterance by Scott will lead to legislation surrounding the use of cameras and mikes in the kiss 'n cry -- at the least, perhaps kiss 'n cry etiquette classes).

    Possible new title choice: Surviving the Foot-in-Mouth Disease of Scott Moir
