I know this is OT but please everybody watch this video.
 

 

This is advice we should be getting from out governments but thank goodness for this man. 

I wear disposable gloves when I shop and the wipe down everything with a clorox wipe as I remove them from the bags.  You can even clorox wipe a zucchini and then wash it after... The trick for me is to change out the gloves before removing stuff from the bags.  That way, you're starting with clean.  I was just lucky to have two boxes of gloves from Costco before the apocalypse so I have no qualms going through multiple pairs. This guy has some good advice.  But I still like the addition of disposable gloves.

I thought I might make my first trip to a competition in Stockholm but not at those prices on those terms - do they think we can’t read or comprehend the terms after the last year?   As soon as I claw back a bit of cash from the ever open beaks of my children the ISU shifts the goalposts again and I have a rooted objection to daylight robbery.  Maybe he will go to Grenoble though I’d prefer it if he didn’t risk the ice tbh.

 

I was intellectually offended about the Skate Canada practices so I didn't buy any worlds tickets for Montreal but as the months passed and after I had that amazing experience in Skate Canada, I found myself regretting missing a life opportunity more than anything so I scrambled and settled for a lot of less than optimal situations to see Yuzu again.  I wasn't even considering Stockholm a month ago but now all I feel is the overwhelming weight of time passing and opportunities dwindling.  

 

But this is the perspective of someone who's held back and missed so many life opportunities her whole life as she enters middle age.  I totally understand where everyone else is coming from and I feel the moral outrage as well, but at this time in life, I feel the need to make the most of life's opportunities where I can and, realistically, the Olympics are out of reach and most athletes don't retire at the post Olympic worlds so this is the last chance to see him at a really big event.

 

However, as soon as he retires, ISU and NBC aren't getting a penny from me.  If I didn't know that it was so difficult to get tickets to even shows in Japan, I would follow him on tour like with concerts instead of spending money on ISU events

Usually I don't advocate of him taking many CMs, but now I think I need it in this endless drought :deadinside:

But they didn't call it a super slam because they know someone else cant ever achieve this :hihi:

Pfff, Yuzu is one title away from twice that achievement - and that title ain’t the most difficult one to get!

I’ve just been assuming that the prices won’t go down given that it’s in Sweden and I have relatives who live there and it’s expensive

I think this is the right attitude. As a Swede i wouldn't expect the prices to have gone down either. Sweden isn't the most expensive place in Europe by a long shot, but it's above the middle line for sure. 

 

Ah, i hate that i'm a poor student and won't even be able to attend a home worlds ; - ;

You know, Olympic Channel also posted many annoying articles.

Everything they posted about Yuzu was nice though

I can't believe it. ISU managed to write an article about Yuzu without mentioning NC. Hands down.

Same for me.

I am hesitating between buying all-event tickets even before knowing if I can go, as they seem to be with a "gala exhibition" as it used to be (and I don't mind if they just add half an hour Award circus); meaning to protest loudly if they replace it by some ersatz and to refuse to attend it.

Yuzuru Hanyu has wonderful masterpieces of exhibition programs, other skaters are way more entertaining in their exhibition programs too, it also show more of them, that's what people want to see, and ISU must understand they won't buy some indifferent stuff, even less attract anybody not already interested in figure skating.

And buying individual tickets.

the all event ticktes are surely going to be very very expensive and are out of reach....but if i'll have some leave from work(and who knows now)I'd like to try a couple of days and maybe see the FS and the gala.....Sweden is a very expensive country that's true but my life has changed dramatically (on  a personal level,Coronavirus apart)and the more i think about  the more i believe i got to do it,i've never seen a FS competition live in my life ,time to check on item of my bucket list:D.

 

 

Spoiler

thanks for the video about groceries shopping,it's scary but helpful,i use gloves too anyhow and clean everything too.also I spry my shoes soles as well and leave them outside my door....not very elegant/polite for my neighbours but it's not like I have a choice.

Somehow it was for him though. Hilarious considering his Olympic success rate is a stellar 100%.
