    Some place competitive and athletic, but ultimately more like an audition than anything else.

    Sounds like some serious criteria

    What a great concept for her 2014-2015 LP!
    I think it's far more likely that one of the regular posters in this thread is Zelda Fitzgerald.

    Still, maybe Suguri could do a program to the Zelda or Midnight in Paris soundtrack.

    Seriously. Don't you honestly feel that factual information will truly drag down this thread???

    Perhaps Sinéad O'Connor should write Fumie a letter?

    It's really interesting why tkaug is so emotionally invested in this.

    I know! tkaug = Chika Suguri, jealous of Fumie's parents still funding her skating, whilst she had to skate one some crappy cruise ship for years.

    How about instead of Zelda Fitzgerald, Fumie's next LP could be themed "What Ever Happened to Baby Chika?" I can imagine it now:

    Fumie: "You wouldn't be able to say these awful things to me if I weren't still competing."
    Chika: "But you *are*, Fumie! You *are* competing!"

    This is a great thread since around November (or October as this might be last year she even makes it to Regionals) will be what happens every year for the next 12 years (atleast) to come. It can be resurrected annually and still be an accurate and no way misleading thread title. There is no way Fumie doesnt skate elite amateur until almost 50. The girl is delusional. She wants to chase her dreams of Olympic and World Golds, even if a clean long program from her couldnt beat a great short program by Yu Na Kim anymore.

    If I had tons of disposable income, I would totally fund an ice production of "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?" starring Fumie and Chika Suguri.

    That is a good one. I laughed good at this one!

    Another good one for her would be "To dream the impossible dream, to fight the unbeatable fight....."

    Poor Chika. She gave a birth to her first baby when FSU users were kidding her and her sister. CHika is a pretty much understandable person. Moreover, she's been successful as a TV commentator, got married with a handsome guy, and now has an adorable baby. She was not as successful as her sister was as a competitive skater. However, she seems happy enough with her life. I never think she envies Fumie in this quad. So I say tkaug is NOT Chika. He/She is someone else. Let Fumie/Chika/tkaug live their lives.

    Congrats to Chika!

    Echoing congratulations to Chika! (also an apology for earlier )

    Since our FSU production of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane has been shut down, how about if Fumie goes for a Sunset Boulevard themed program instead with Fumie playing Norma Desmond?

    Her ending pose could be this: http://youtu.be/zIcC8YJrevQ?t=13s

    "All right Mr. Cinquanta, I'm ready for my Olympic gold medal..."

    and if i had tons of disposable income, i would follow it from city to city wearing a blond wig with sausage curls carrying an enormous doll

    can we get a kickstarter up in here?
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    Thanks rosewood, for all the info on Chika, glad to hear she is doing so well!

    I hope our Fumie/Chika comments were not offensive, we were really using them to poke fun at the troll.

    I found this video of Chika explaining jumps, with giant posters of Fumie, Miki and Divakawa in the background

    Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald (July 24, 1900 – March 10, 1948), born Zelda Sayre in Montgomery, Alabama, was an American novelist and the wife of writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. She was an icon of the 1920s—dubbed by her husband "the first American Flapper." After the success of his first novel, This Side of Paradise (1920), the Fitzgeralds became celebrities.

    The couple wed in New York on April 3, 1920, and later moved to Europe. While Scott received acclaim for The Great Gatsby and his short stories, and the couple socialized with literary luminaries like Ernest Hemingway, their marriage was a tangle of jealousy, resentment and acrimony. Scott used their relationship as material in his novels, even lifting snippets from Zelda's diary and assigning them to his fictional heroines. Seeking an artistic identity of her own, Zelda wrote magazine articles and short stories, and at 27 became obsessed with a career as a ballerina, practicing to exhaustion.

    The strain of her tempestuous marriage, Scott's increasing alcoholism, and her growing instability presaged Zelda's admittance in 1930 to the Sheppard Pratt sanatorium in Towson, Maryland, where she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

    By August 1943 she returned to the Highland Hospital. She worked on her novel while checking in and out of the hospital. She never really got better and never finished the novel. On the night of March 10, 1948, a fire broke out in the hospital kitchen. Zelda was locked into a room, awaiting electroshock therapy. The fire moved through the dumbwaiter shaft, spreading onto every floor. The fire escapes were wooden, and caught fire as well. Nine women, including Zelda, died.[84]
