I am a strange person.

I am only turning twenty; I should not feel old!

...Etan decorated the apartment with all-black decorations. He thinks he's funny. He's not. :)


Katrina not so popular as baby name

America doesn't like my name anymore, oh noes! Actually, the first thing I thought was "Good lord, people, Katrina =/= Adolf!" And then I laughed when that same analogy was in the article.

In other news, I have now watched last night's Supernatural three times and it does not get easier. *sob* Can't wait for the finale next week.
When I woke up this morning, there was a huge beetle ON MY FACE.

I have the heebie-jeebies.


*happy dance*

Skating has been so fantastic lately. After a long period of sort of drudging through it, I really do remember why I love it so much. I'm having so much fun with it again, and I'm just thrilled about that.


Etan and I saw 300 the other day. Seriously, one of the most visually stunning movies I've seen in my life. I enjoyed it quite a bit, actually-- more than I would have guessed. Etan didn't like it very much, poor kid.


Harry Potter book seven cover art has been released... I'm torn between anticipation and sadness. I've been reading these since sixth grade! I don't want them to be over!


Um, what else? Oh, evanicontest has been doing so well. I'm excited! We get really fantastic entries every week.


And finally, the ladybugs are upon us, which means Etan is going totally batshit. I don't know what his obsession is.

Note to self: Stop clicking on .pdf files, you silly twit.

Random icons.

This is my first time posting a real icon batch, so I'm kind of nervous. :)

Evan Lysacek IconsCollapse )

So bored.

My brain is apparently my favorite color!

I love this icon. I love Evan. He is way too adorable.

I'm booooooored. And hyper.

Your Brain is Red

Of all the brain types, yours is the most impulsive.
If you think it, you do it. And you can get the bug to pursue almost any passion.
Your thoughts are big and bold. Your mind has no inhibitions.

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about love, your dreams, and distant places.

Well, this isn't fun.

Etan and I are in the process of moving, so everything's a mess right now. It's driving me crazy. I can't think straight.

I got my hair cut. I hate it.

I hurt my foot and so I didn't skate today, which makes me cranky.

Firefox is being a bitch.

I need some chocolate.


I am just now getting to my Nationals thoughts. I've been sick, so I haven't felt up to it until now.

-I got to see my friends Madison and Keiffer compete in the junior dance event. It was SO close between them and Emily & Evan, but they ultimately ended up with the silver. They were great though! There was only a 0.17 difference between first and second place.

-Mirai Nagasu and Caroline Zhang were very impressive. It's always so interesting to see the younger skaters, and they didn't disappoint. I knew Caroline was amazing, but this was the first time I ever saw Mirai. I think she has a better chance of surviving the puberty monster, but I'm really hoping that both of them make the transition into Seniors smoothly.

-The senior dance event was wonderful because the U.S. suddenly has so many talented teams! I really enjoyed all of the top six and many of the lower-ranked couples. The highlights were definitely Navarro/Bommentre, Davis/White, and of course, Belbin/Agosto. I think B/A's new Amelie free dance is going to be stunning.

-Pairs was... pairs. It's America, how good can the pairs event be? Nam/Leftheris were great in the SP (not so much in the long, unfortunately), and Castile/Okolski did a good job to win the title.

-The senior ladies were great in the short program. WAY more exciting than I thought it was going to be. Bebe Liang won the night for me. The long program was beyond dull, but I was pleased to see Bebe fight back after two falls by throwing in that Lutz combination. She's also a doll when you talk to her.

-The senior men... well, it was all about Evan Lysacek, to tell the truth. His short program was great and he got a standing ovation, which was awesome considering that he skated early. But it was the long program that sticks out for me. I have never experienced anything quite like it. The whole atmosphere was amazing, the crowd was practically chaotic, and Evan gave one of the most magical performances I've ever seen in person. It's right up there with Michelle Kwan's Tosca in 2004. He gave me goosebumps.

-The medal ceremony for the men was another big thing for me... I've been a fan of Evan's since 2003, so I was very emotional to see him win this title.

-Also, it has to be said that Evan is one of the sweetest people I've ever met. He's so good to his fans, and he was just a darling to me. I got to see him several times throughout the week, and he never seemed less than happy to talk to me. I've been fortunate enough to talk to Evan at many competitions before this one, but each time I'm just so impressed with how he handles himself. He's a genuinely nice guy in addition to being an immensely talented skater.

And Courtney, I forgot to tell you... I have something for you!

-Oh, I got to talk to Frank Carroll and Ken Congemi, which was very interesting. Ken is VERY enthusiastic (so he's not just like that on TV... hehe).

-I missed the exhibitions because Etan and I came down with some horrible stomach virus. Disappointing, but I had a great week despite that.
