    What's flying like today? (Experiences/news)

    Thought I’d share a quick recap of my journey from London, UK to my home region of Limousin, France yesterday. Overall (and due to very low expectations), I was well impressed by people's behaviour! Had planned on WFH home from my sis house and some time off a couple of weeks ago when France...

    Commercials: Laughter or Tears; Your Faves

    This one never fails to make me laugh: La Marche de l’empereur (March of the (Emperor) Penguins title in France)

    Papadakis/Cizeron #9 - People Will See Them And Cry

    Great interview, not dissimilar to the Championnes du Monde one from last July, but with still new sides of Gaby!

    ISU Cancels 2020 World Figure Skating Championships

    Is it naive to ask if Montreal could host next year and move all allocations by one year? Don’t think there would have been much organisation done for 2021 yet? But Sweden might get annoyed to not get pre-OG Worlds?

    Let's Talk Movies #36 - 2020 - Yep it is a new decade

    Saw Emma too tonight. Really enjoyed it. Josh O’Connor (aka The Crown’s Prince Charles) was absolutely brilliant as Mr Elton!

    Montreal chosen as host for 2020 figure skating world championships

    Lol. There was a time when I would get really annoyed at North Americans saying “we’re going to Europe”. Where? There’s 27 countries in a Europe! I got over it but I still find it very strange! (Works for Africa too! )

    The aftermath of DG's resignation - what next for the FFSG?

    I feel the same. That he took a little bit of time to resign so he could organise the next steps. I hope I’m proven wrong :(

    Montreal chosen as host for 2020 figure skating world championships

    My understanding is that the ticket holder voucher is to be exchanged for a real (I assume plastic) holder + lanyard - should protect the ticket!

    Does french figure skating have a culture of rape ? FFSG in the storm

    Let’s see how this develops this week. But I think it could happen. France is 4 years away from hosting the Olympic Games and will need to show that they don’t support this behaviour.

    No, it's a she - former Olympic swimmer Roxana Maracineanu

    Let's Talk Movies #36 - 2020 - Yep it is a new decade

    Finally managed to see Knives Out today. Enjoyed it. It took me a while to get into it but I did and it was a fun murder mystery. i didn’t know Ana de Armas but she did a great job! (i kept thinking it was felicity jones even though I knew she wasn’t in the movie!) Re: going to movies alone. I...

    Let's Talk Movies #36 - 2020 - Yep it is a new decade

    Saw 1917 yesterday. Very good movie. Filmed to make it look like it’s a single shot from beginning to end gives it a special closeness feeling (cinema also had amazing sound and it really adds to the experience) and it felt almost like a behind-closed-doors atmosphere - even if it's entirely...
