Flying Girls In Sparkly Dresses

Anne Line Gjersem of Norway

Marcy:  The Olympics are over, Cindy. Why are you still staring at the figure skaters?

Cynthia:  I can’t help it, Marcy. Jezebel posted these incredible photos of the skaters in mid jump last Thursday.

Akiko Suzuki of Japan

Cynthia:  Their athleticism is mid boggling. I mean, just look at these pics.


Park So-Youn of South Korea

Cynthia: These aren’t just pretty rich girls in sequined tutus jumping around to schmaltzy music.

Marcy:  Yes, they are.

Cynthia (ignoring her):  These are fierce, unafraid, and determined young women ready to kill themselves for an extra point and a gold medal. Just like the hockey players and skiers.


Yulia Lipnitskaya of Russia

Marcy (yawning):  Whatever. I leap and twist in the air every day.

Cynthia:  Yeah, but you don’t do it on a pair of razor blades and then try to land on a sheet of hard ice!

Marcy:  Well. I’m allergic to the cold.

Cynthia:  Oh. Too bad. I was going to enter you in the Cat Curling Contest.

Marcy (horrified and angry):  And you wonder why I throw up on your favorite rug.

    Those pictures are amazing? I barely caught any of the Olympics. I kept forgetting it was on. Thankfully, I got to see the women's figure skating last night. So beautiful. You are right. They are fierce. Have you ever tried ice skating? I did once. I stepped on the ice. I stepped off of the ice. That is the extent my ankles could handle the skates. Those women are amazing!

    Sorry Marcy, but Cynthia's right! Those roller skates make jumping so much harder! : )

      I am a nightmare on ice skates. When I did it as a kid I would hang onto the wall for dear life. My biggest fear was falling and having someone run over my hand and slice it in two. Too scary!
      xo, cynthia

      I think you are right. She would be really good a psyching her opponents out with her mean Marcy glare. lol

    My disdain for Scott Hamilton is so great that I missed watching a lot of the figure skating this Olympic go-around – something about his commentating just rubs me the wrong way, hehe.

      My problem with him and the other commentators is that they aren't objective. They speak softly and say inane uninteresting things. I would like some real insight on what I'm watching.
