    As the Page Turns (the Book Thread)

    I used to enjoy the Kay Scarpetta series by Patricia Cornwell but the characters became so unlikeable and the plots so weird I stopped reading them.

    Tanith does a great job providing insight for lower ranked dance teams but not so much for the top teams. Also, I wish she would lighten up a bit - she tries to be so professional she comes across as stiff. Charlie does a good job bringing out her more personable side.

    Montpellier 2022

    We bought our all-event tickets from the arena. We are in section G as well and are in the same seats except for the men's long.

    Montpellier 2022

    Found out it was impossible to get an answer through FFSG. Anyone with questions will get a response emailing with the arena in Montpellier.

    Music You Hate in Skating

    The k.d. lang version of Hallelujah. I love the song but I can’t stand her overwrought wailing. Any song where the skater(s) says that the song “describes their journey.”

    Skate America 2021 Returns to Las Vegas

    USFS would make a fortune if they sold clear bags along with the SA merchandise. Also, I wish arena security was as diligent about keeping spectators from coming down the stairs during skaters’ programs as they are about the clear bag policy. 😠

    U.S. Women [#1]: The Contenders Unmask Themselves

    I want Alysa, Mariah and Amber to go to Olympics. Bradie and Karen have been to an Olympics and it’s not like either one has a prayer of medaling so why go back? I want people to go who’ve never been.

    Not skating related but I wish the gymnast Oksana Chusovitina would just retire already. She announced her retirement (again!) after Tokyo but now she said she’s going to compete at next year’s Asian Games.

    Jessica Calalang Cleared of Drug Violation

    Perhaps it depends on the serum but the kind I use actually does make my eyelashes longer and thicker. But I agree a good mascara helps a lot, too. :)

    Skate America 2021 Returns to Las Vegas

    That was another question. I've been to other events where the spectators were supposed to carry a "clear bag" but it wasn't enforced and it seemed the other spectators pretty much carried in whatever kind of tote, purse, bag they wanted. Is the clear bag mandated at this arena? Thank you all...

    Skate America 2021 Returns to Las Vegas

    Those of you who went to Skate America last year, what did you pack? It looks like it's going to be in the 80s next week in Las Vegas. Did you pack shorts to wear while site seeing and warmer clothes to wear in the arena? How cold was the arena?

    A performance from the past it just gives you chills. Please post one

    Kavaguti/Smirnov Manfred Symphony at Skate America. Stunning! Alas, they never skated it as well after that performance.
