For those who want to think about the Olympics with a shorter post, a poll:
Ice dancing: is it a sport? And if it is a sport, do you think ballroom dancing should appear in the summer Olympics?
Can you listen to Carmen (Navka and Kostomarov's ice dance music) without flashing back to Gilligan's Island's musical Hamlet? Politica and I were singing "Neither a borrower nor a lender be, do not forget, stay out of debt..." at one point during the performance.
