  1. Random Thought Theater

    The whole thing was distasteful- the media were awful from start to finish, and by start I mean the whole Ice Princess/ good girl vs trailer trash story they pushed before any criminal activity took place. It wasn't a period when I followed ladies skating and the news I did see didn't encourage me to start again, so I don't know the ins and outs of it but it had that awful 'judging by appearances/ background ' vibe that is so unpleasant.

    Those things always look so peculiar - never understood the attraction of Mme Tussauds.
  3. Startled to find my mix of personal favourites, sentimental picks and the obvious bookies picks put me so high up the list - but then it has been the weirdest GP series. Thanks @Joey for organising it and well done to the winners.

    I think everyone needs to calm down. Get back to work/ homework/ writing papers whatever you normally do. There's a lot of bits of 'news' leaking all over the place -ignore and wait until something else comes out from TCC or JSF. If he's well enough for Nats he'll be there- if he's not we'll see him in PC. Whipping yourselves into a state doesn't do anyone any good and if he were to see any of it might have a bad effect.
  5. [2017] GPF - Ice Dance SD & FD

    The problem with ice dance is that personal preferences are going to colour the average fans view ( quadruple that for the casual viewer ). I can't tell the technical difference between the two - not knowledgeable enough - but I prefer P/C - to me V/M are too flashy/in your face/ whatever, but not in some new innovative way, just in the NA tradition, just a bit too much without adding anything new. IDK how to express it - it's just a feeling and it is probably me being too European but that's what I think
  6. [2017] GPF - Ladies SP & FS

    OTT - apologies - Helsinki - I was meeting an old friend for lunch- couldn't put her off - don't know whether she noticed that I was suddenly massively more upbeat and cheerful after a trip to the ladies to check what was happening. Couldn't wait to get rid of everyone so that I could watch and rewatch and wallow.....
  7. [2017] GPF - Ladies SP & FS

    I was a total coward and went off to do housework rather than watch the ladies, which is most unlike me.

    I find them most annoying but it's my most secure stream. I wish I could have Ted commenting on everything not just the juniors

    @sallycinnamon So do BESP- they sound like lots of us talking about Wakaba i really dislike C/B s music
  10. [2017] GPF - Pairs SP & FS

    I love S/H but that was great - pity about the Russian pair, but the Olympic pairs competition is going to be insane.
  11. [2017] GPF - Pairs SP & FS

    It must have been hard seeing the reaction to S/H while they were waiting to start

    We are having snow showers this afternoon - nothing to those of you who live in cold countries, but more than enough to put the feline dictator out of temper. He's been following me round the house growling his displeasure and attempting to herd me to the sofa to provide him with a warm place to dry off.

    My daughter can stand up for herself better than my sons can ( comes of having older brothers) but even she calls in the big guns when things get too nasty, especially if she's not well
