In a fit of Olympic withdrawal, Elio and I spent much of the evening downloading videos (from this place, for example, and from here) of favourite figure skating routines from previous Olympics & Worlds. I just love it all—the music, the costumes, the drama and, of course, the guys. ;) I firmly believe that more sports need to feature guys with nice (long, that is) hair, earrings and ... interesting outfits.
In the even of future onset of sudden urges to watch figure skating, I think I will try to build up a library of great performances and burn them to a CD or DVD. I’ve been a figure skating addict for a fair while now, an its even more fun now that I get Elio to watch it with me. Of course, I am slightly suspicious of his reasons for doing so. It may have something to do with the fact that he’s a great fan of classical music whereas I am not ... unless said music is accompanied by an interesting figure skating routine. ;)
