[Gwendal Peizerat (Russian team-jacket, blond, badly French-accented English) interviewing Evgeni Pushenko (Russian team-jacket, blond, badly Russian-accented English). It really was kind of cute.]

[Ladies' figure skating has always been my least favourite discipline, because of all the (over-)emphasis on prettiness, gracefulness, femininity. These women are athletes, it seems unfair that being pretty/sexy should play a much more important part than with the men. I've caught myself being automatically prejudiced in favour of skaters who ditch the pretence of a skirt for the bodysuit, and I love both Slutskaya and Sokolowa's styles because they're both so very elegant and beautiful but in a way that shows their power and strength much more directly...]

[Still, it occurred to me that watching figure skating is perhaps the girliest thing I do. And yes, I'm aware that this statement is wrong and discriminating in just about every way possible, but I'm not in the mood for an in depth analysis.Or an essay. Except possibly for occasionally squeeing over cute animals, alive, stuffed, or drawn. Oh and, musicals. Apparently I'm a girlier girl than I thought I was... Right. There was a point to this post?]


Oh, ::sigh::.

There was supposed to be a second, more serious rambling, introspective, already half-sketched out (and, ::gasp::, not-figure skating related) part to this post (hence the brackets above), but I doubt it'll get written today any more than it did yesterday, when I wasn't distracted by tv. So... eh. I'll leave the profundity for later.



Thank god Olympics are mostly over.
