My flag jumped to British, as I got wi fi and roaming on at the same time, both are free, but sometimes I phone chooses the roaming — that is when wi if is slow.

I can't watch those videos right now as they won't download, the connection is crap. We are actually on the beach — the temperature of the sea is warmer than the air here.

How did the UK vote? The UK vote is not on either of those lists it seems. If that's the case — it's outrageous (just kidding)
Anyway, glad you got the result you wanted.

The flag is French again. We are in a bar by the beach, the closer to the sea — the slower is wi if, but roaming always works. It is funny, I noticed it was the same in Ireland.

See, staying avay from politics helpes me a lot ^^
I think many Russians on this forum aren't friendly because of your group.
As for me people should always differ politicians/politics and ordinary people. For example I don't like Canadian foreign policy but I have friends in Canada and I like Virtue&Moir alot. They are beautiful skaters (ice dance). And I like other things about Canada too.

Oh, It's my favorite type of vacation (sea and beach). I tried some skiing but I like swimming in the sea the most.

Russian "patriots" of this forum hate me in particular cause i live in Britain and along with America — that's the pinnacle of their hatred. But I love the country I live in, people here have always been great to me, I am married to a Brit for Christ sakes and actually — have only known British men in my life (in that way I mean). Why should I pretend to be someone other than I am on this forum?

You would love it here — Cote d'Azure, beautiful place — fantastic for swimming — tranquil, no jelly fish, hardly any breeze, comfy temperature. Our British beaches — cold water, wave, breeze — more suitable for surfers rather than swimmers.

UK probably didn't take part in that voting. It was an urgent proposal and it was a mess.
I believe it was a trial balloon. Next year it will be serious. I'm not sure but Kostornaya is our of their reach now, she will probably turn senior before next ISU Congress (you can't send senior to juniors).
Ladies figure skating career are probably the shortest among other kinds of sports.
Julia Lipnitskaya senior career was de-facto 1 year, but she became Olympic gold medalist (team event). And her «girl in red» is among most watchable skating performances on youtube


Average senior career among top ladies is usually 7−9 years. Taking away 2 years from them seems unfair to me.

British family i've lived in my childhood was also very kind to me.
And many people on this particular forum are «playing games». I can easily imagine a person thinking where to go — politforums or «world of tanks». You are in their foes team, so they are playing against you.

Btw, what ballet performances do you like most?

P.S. I realise you are on the beach now, so it is very inconvenient to post or watch videos. Pls don't think I require immediate answer

This is too deep into the subject for me to comment on, as I know nothing about it but I wish the Russian skaters well. You know in ballet — there is no competition like that. I mean — there is of course competition, fierce competition but no «country» competition. The public is the judge — in any country where the particular ballet tours. Art critics can write whatever they like but it's like with films- the public is the ultimate voter and judge. Of course unlike with films, the «ballet public» is much more sophisticated.

It's so hard to answer that cause there are so many. At the moment I watch a lot of children's ballets — cause of my daughter — last one I watched was in the Peacock Theatre in London (it's the Children's theatre) — it was Canterville Ghost (Oscar Wilde, musical interpretation by Artem Vasiliev) — it was contemporary, I loved many performances there.

So many figure skating fans (me included) dream figure skating to stop being «country» competition.
Best scenario for me it like they compete in tennis.
Russian and Japanese ladies have so many troubles because it's a country competition.
For example Carolina Kostner wouldn't be able to compete till she is 30 if she was a Russian skater. She is the only notable figure skater in Italy, that's why she shouldn't be afraid about her place in Italian team. That's why she can casually train during the whole season and peak in right time (worlds or Olympics). Russian ladies pool is deep as ocean that's why they can't allow to make mistake. Every competition is important for them and they have to be in peak form almost during entire season. That can impact their health and their longevity as a skater.
