Albena Denkova and Maxim Staviski are the world ice dancing champions AGAIN!!*bounces*I'm so happy for them and for Bulgaria!It seems unreal that they would manage to do that two times,in a row,not because they are less amazing this year,but because the judging in this sport has been so very unfair to them,so often.

I don't feel the same exaltation as last year though :],in fact I can still feel last year.It was a novelty,something that had never happened in Bulgarian figure skating before.Even if they hadn't got to the first place this year,they'd still have achieved a victory that no Bulgarian skaters ever came close to before.Last year I was trembling and barely dared to breathe during they performances.This year,especially after seeing them in the Grand Prix,I almost wasn't worried at all.I just knew they would be perfect,because nothing less could be expected of them anymore.This time I was absolutely sure they would be the best yet again,but I was resigned to the fact that they would most probably not be allowed to get what they deserve for a second time.This season's free program,while great and exquisitely performed,was too dramatic for my taste.But most of all,I suppose,I can't get as happy,because all the time I was thinking "and that's it,watch them carefully now,cause that's the last time".I will miss them so much.I can only hope that they can train somebody at least partially as good as them.Albena's younger sister is also an ice dancer,so maybe that couple will have a go when they are ready,but Bulgarian figure skating won't be this big anytime soon,I'm afraid.
Oh,why am I moping,they got to be world champions two times,and I'm getting annoyed because I can't find a list of their other medals and my memory is very sporadic about details :P.But anyway,medals are far from the most important thing and they've given figure skating fans amazing performances and the last competition in their career left them with happy smiles,instead of Maxim's sarcastic/pissed-off/not-surprised-though one ;)) Thank you for these great years guys!!!
Ice Dancing in the next years will be interesting,too,I like the younger couples that are now stepping up.Not the "best" Russian couple though.
And,did I mention-YAY!;) (why,yes,I'm an obsessed figure skating fan,if that's news to anyone;P)

Albena Denkova and Maxim Staviski are the World Ice Dancing Champions in Calgary 2006!They'll be going up the cute maple leaf podium right now....Omg and there's a mountie next to it *G* My fangirlishness is desorientatingly triggered from different directions :P
Finally,after all these years of being pushed down by judges,they made it in maybe their last competing season!(please,let them decide for one more,at least!)YESS!
*l*I was so nervous that I was almost afraid to look when they started.But I did watch them and they were amazing.All the couples from the last group were very good and you could feel the class that separates them from the others,but Albena and Maxim absolutely deserved to win and they also deserved the best marks for their free program,but,oh,well,it's the final result that counts.I thought that the second best were Margarita Drobiazko and What'sHisName though...

*bounces*

So I go away and my flists starts posting.*l*
My new schedule is awful.I have classes from 7.00 every day but one!That means I need to be up at 5.50 every fucking morning and I'm so -not- a morning person.I just hope we manage to squeeze the 2 classes our groups have in friday into another day,cause otherwise,I'll be going home for like half a day and taking the train back.
Figure scating ramble in the next paragraph.
Albena Denkova and Maxim Staviski didn't make it to the medalls yesterday.Damn.I wanted them to make it so much.They most probably won't have another chance for olympic success,unless they do like the italian couple and go back to competing especially for the next games,but we saw how good that went.You shouldn't have missed her leg at the original dance,Maxim :[.*l*Although it was truly astonishing how much worse mistakes the following couples made.They fell and they fell WTF was the ice more slippery or what?:] It was the pressure,more likely and it was a problem not only for the Bulgarian couple,as was seen.Poor French guys(I am so awful with names).... I started to get that new judging system just a bit and enough to not be happy with Albena and Maxim's the second mark yesterday.Blah,that's what I don't like in this sport-there is absolutely no way to ensure fairness in judging.Oh,well,5th is not bad.They weren't perfect technically(which happens rarely to them),but try to compare their artistry to Navka and Costumarov's (unsuccessful) effort for the passion in Carmen.
And how the hell did I completely miss the sports couples?!Idiot.

I'm trying to find some kind of job that would agree with my insane schedule.Keep your fingers crossed for me,please,because I need more money badly :P.

Hey there!Yup,I haven't disappeared,um,at least not intentionally or permanenly :P It's just that I had first practical exams at the end of the term and then,shortly after there was the theoretical exams session and most of the time I wasn't home,so no computer and ...blah.I may have got used to not having one all the time,but I still hate it with the same fiery passion.
Anyway,I'll try to catch up at least with the most recent posts while I'm home...um that's until sunday morning :[,I hope I manage.
Hey,at least I took the exams :),the chemistry from the second time but it's all done now.And I'm very very tired and the second term is starting on moday.Yay.
I had things I wanted to write here while I was away and I tried to remember them for later but I'm not sure I did...*lol*Seriously I'm going crazy with all of the last-minute studying,I had this dream,while I was preparing for zoology and it was so very weird,what I remember is there was a lot of snow and ice,a nuclear bomb,some criminals,a mention of Veronica Mars,disfunctioning cell phones,a rickety car that I was trying to escape with,that kept occasionally turning into slippers(!),a pack of stray dogs,with a small,but very vicious pig in the lead that attacked me and tackled me after my car had once again transformed and some moral dillema along with the whole thing that I'm not sure what it was.Yes,this comes from zoology,ecology(which was the previous exam),my phone playing tricks on me and,I suppose it had something to do with my newly discovered interest in CSI and WaT *g*.My brain was fried.
I had forgotten how much I enjoy a good criminal show *l*.But staying for two weeks wth only a black-and- white tv and 3 channel with those two shows the only thing worth watching reminded me.Oh and that's the CSI with the blue-eyed black guy with the name that makes me think of Yorick *l*,not the one with the off-putting almost albino guy.:P I'm not sure which city is which but I don't like the other one.
Oh,but we finally bought a bigger tv for home and now I'm taking the old one in Stara Zagora,along with a dvd player :D!And since I finally found (can you believe it?*g*) a fellow Due South fan,we can now watch it all!:)) And I plan to give her a few new obsessions,too,heheh.And I have a new one,btw--how addictive is Prison Break?I never expected to be taken with such a show,but it's great!And their break(the show's) is ridiculously long,they better give us some good stuff on 20.03!:]

I now have the first and the third books from The Tawny Man!!!:D I asked a friend that studies in Richmond to order the whole thing(second hand) and bring the books with her when she comes home for the winter break,but the second book was slower and now I'll have to wait until May to get it,too.*l*Which is just like my luck,because I have already read the first one(e-book),but still!I've been trying to fugure out a way to get these for years,literally!Maybe I'll order Liveship Traders the same way next year,if I have money.I probably will-these three costet me only $16 which would be about how much I'd have paid for them had they been published here,if not less.I hope it doesn't sound as if I'm only using my friend to avoid shipping costs *lol*.I would have preferred for her to have stayed here instead of going to the other end of the world so that I can only see her on hollydays,but if she's there with a credit card anyway...;))

I was very sorry that I missed the men's short program the other day(I'm talking figure scating and the olympic games...*points at journal header :]*)but I saw the free program yesterday and I have to say I was quite dissappointed.That's the olympic games!Everyone should be at their best,right.So why weren't they?:( There wasn't one perfect scate!Not even Plushenko gave his greatest performance that I've seen.In fact,I believe it wasn't even his second best.And that's something coming from me,cause I don't like him.Ok,I admit he's got very good these last years,but he'll never be as good as Yagudin -and- he could have tried harder yesterday.*l*There's no place for comparisson between his program and The Iron Mask *sighs*Yeah,ok I miss Yagudin a lot :P,but that doesn't make it not true.I hope Albena and Maxim don't get too undergraded tonight,although that's what usually happens,so it wouldn't be a surprise.And that new judging system is so confusing btw,I can't get it at all and have to rely on the commentator :[.Hmm,I just realized that I don't know if anyone on my flist is interested at all in figure scating,so ignore this if you're not.

Ok,that's it for now,I'll go look at my Friends page now *s*
