So I was watching the Olympic Ice Dancing tonight, and it was so good. I really enjoyed the American couple Davis and White. He reminded me of Christopher Atkins in the Blue Lagoon with his curly blond hair, and she was beautiful like Belle from Disney's Beauty and the Beast. I loved that they skated to Phantom of the Opera. It made me wonder what would happen if in the middle of your skating routine, the music skipped or something?
But OMG the Canadian couple Virtue and Moir from Ilderton Ontario, (which is half an hour from where I grew up) I was crying the whole time, and then they won the Gold. I think I have made a decision. I think that when Jeff and I retire we are living half the year in Canada and half the year in Arizona, and we will live in Trilogy. Although I think we have already talked about doing this already. But I had no idea the population of Canada was not that high, well like California is bigger, no wonder Canadians are so nice, they are not overcrowded and people on top of people, you have fresh air and green grass. Although where Jeff grew up in Illinois, it was so much like my home in Canada there was not much difference when we lived there. I guess the older I get, I am getting a little melancholy. Snap out of it eh?
Oh my sister Jax and my niece Jade found this cool video of Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir skating…check them out…
OMG Here is another one, a montage one, I could watch them all day…I would love to see them do a Twilight dance, can you imagine Bella and Edward on ice?
Oh and what was up with the Russian Bungee cord skaters? The girl looked like she had a bad case of spider veins on her leg, I don't think they should have got third, and the whole hanging onto the cords for holds, that seems weird. I need to look up on-line what their costume was for the short dance program, cause I guess they got into trouble for that. I think they should have been penalized, and the bronze should have gone to the other American team…but since I have no clue what so ever how it is all scored, I could be talking out of place.
So as I was watching the Ice skating, I thought I'd whip up one of my famous off the wall kinda humor cards. Are you ready?
Seems innocent enough, a kind little chef offering up the evening menu for Easter.
But it is always nice to have a choice when you go out to eat right?
…hmmm? Decisions, decisions. You decide and surprise me.
Recipe…errr maybe I should use a different word this time…

OH my God I was bawling the whole time too.
It was on so late here. They did not skate till 11:30 PM, when get up time is 4:00 AM that is pretty late, but I watched them anyway. They were amazing, and all the people in the community centre in Ilderton. How fun.
They were just flawless the whole entire time…and the Russians with the weird outfits….yeah check those out…WTF??

Shelley Bohan says
OMGosh I can't believe I missed the Ice Dance free skate. I was busy working on my swaps due on friday. Luckily I caught it the next day. That was so amazing! I just finished watching Joannie Rochette perform her short program on the verge of tears, when she finished I just started bawling. I actually stood up and started clapping. I'm starting to cry just thinking about it.
Girl you crack me up. Love your humor.
It's very rare that a card has me laughing out loud, but you did it with this one–front and inside!
