    Gymnastic news #22 - Tokyo or bust

    So cool! I attended my company’s Women’s Leadership Forum by Zoom and our guest leadership speaker was Dominique Dawes! She was amazing. She spoke about checking your ego at the door, understanding the team goal is more important, every contribution is important. Choosing to be positive and...

    Yes I was so sorry she didn't make an Olympic team. I think she got very thin in 1992, seemed to lose a bit of power plus the injury. Then, this sounds creepy, I wasn't aware of this: https://archive.seattletimes.com/archive/?date=19960303&slug=2317061

    I think of "mean-girling" to be bullying, peer abuse. An adult in a place of responsibility, a teacher doing it - just plain old abuse.

    Dancing with the Stars, Season 29

    Justina actually performed. I think others did a better job at execution, but she looked like she was having fun. Johnny executed with line and extension, but he was a bit stiff. Hopefully he will continue and will not feel black inside.

    Boring Facts About You

    Same except brown Lexus SUV, and there is one just like it at my office that I try to enter all the time. I finally notice that it has cream instead of saddle interior and slink off to find where I parked mine. I hope it is never broken into as my fingerprints are all over it. I think I say...

    Lawsuits against USA Gymnastics, Larry Nassar, etc. - news & updates

    I went to a ballet academy for jr. high and high school, and there was no reduction in tuition if you were injured and could not dance. We were required to sit on the bench and watch (and you can learn quite a lot from that). But the tuition covered English, Math, Science, French, Music, Art...

    Foods/Drinks You Have Tried and NEVER AGAIN!

    There is very little I won't eat, but I prefer not to eat lima beans, cooked/frozen peas (raw is good), chicken livers or gizzards, sweetbreads, tripe, haggis, things like pigs or chicken feet (but ok if it is just in soup), sea urchin, and big, musky west coast oysters (I love smaller east...

    I would just love to see her at Nationals. And how about a head to head Chellsie Chussy event.

    Gymnastic news #22 - Tokyo or bust

    I read a bit from VKF's book about her dislike for cornrows. Jeanette Antolin showed up in cornrows and VKF told her it was a harsh look she didn't want her team to project and that she'd be sitting on the bench if she didn't take them out. Katelyn Ohashi showed up in cornrows, she got the...

    Lawsuits against USA Gymnastics, Larry Nassar, etc. - news & updates

    Judicial economy, cases have filing deadlines so that they can move forward to a finish. Terin had plenty of notice of the case and the ability to know the filing deadlines. While she concedes that she was well aware of the case and its deadlines, she says she didn't realize she too was abused...
