    Sorely tempted to illustrate a Charlie puppy...
    "Eve was not taken out of Adam's head to top him, neither out of his feet to be trampled by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected by him, and near his heart to be loved by him."

    Meryl already drew a Charlie Puppy in her NHK silly interview where the question about what would you be if not yourself was asked. Charlie wanted to be a puppy. Meryl wanted to be the owner of a Charlie Puppy and her sheet of paper had a drawing of a puppy that had a decidedly Charlie look to it.

    I don't know what it looked like but I'm thinking something like a yellow Labradoodle?

    Meryl's drawing kinda sorta reminds me of this famously animated puppy

It's like, you don't have to look perfect all the time, it's enough if you look perfect in competition.

    ETA: Just took a peak at the #18 last posts and I saw a few comments on the SD dress. Well, for me it's perfect and she shouldn't change a thing about it. The color is divine, the skirt flows and moves beautifully as Meryl dances and the top with the sparkles is glamour but very refined and classy. I love every single part of this dress, so please Meryl don't change a thing! (work on the FD costume instead )

    Since there was some discussion toward the end of the last thread about favorite D/W performances, I'll always love this version of Eleanor Rigby. It wasn't perfect by any means, and I still like the later version, but I love the more contemporary approach to their dancing here. Sometimes I wonder what route D/W would have gone if they had been fully prepared for the start of the season (though I know Charlie had an injury so it was out of their hands) and if the program had been more cohesive.

    I still really like the entrance to the twizzles here, and wish things like that still mattered more today.

    (Sorry if this version had been posted in that recent discussion! I didn't happen to see it, so I assumed it wasn't)

    It's killing me that the senior SD isn't until tomorrow, and it's the last part of the competition. I don't know if my nerves can take much more of this.

    That man is ridiculously cute.

    We are anxiously awaiting an ice-apocalypse scheduled to arrive early Friday morning. No school tomorrow makes a 3:15 (CST) start time much more appealing. I may even set my alarm for pairs.

    Thanks to Finnice for this lovely photo. Clearly "no core strength" Meryl and "wobbly blades" Charlie:

    I've always laughed when people say Meryl doesn't use her core..or has no core strength. To get anywhere in skating, no matter the discipline, your core must be strong.
