Still no James/Sharna AT up on the page. Getting a little fishy, I think.
I wouldn't be surprised if the reason they are taking so long to upload James' and Sharna's AT is because of the current complaints about Carrie Ann.  Once they put up the video they may receive more negative comments than they care to deal with.  In fairness they should at least put up the video tomorrow so that it can be seen over the weekend before the finals.

Another take on an AT - this from Louise and Kevin on last week's Strictly. A beauty.

Glad you posted that, bro. It was next on my agenda but got distracted and didn't do it. You know that Danny and Oti are my team on Strictly. I wonder how things will go tonight.

I've been asked to write tomorrow's article about it, so I guess I'll have to watch (not that I wouldn't anyway).

Laurie Hernandez is 5 feet tall according to the internet.  That's my height.  Maks is 6'2", Val is 6 feet.  He doesn't look that tall and Derek is 5'10", but you guys probably already knew that.

I knew Maks was tall(dang that guy has the longest legs!!)  but I did not know Val was that tall!.........I saw Shawn next to Laurie and Shawn looked shorter than Laurie so I guess Shawn might be 4 something?

Yes, it says Shawn is 4'11".  Maks does look tall because of his long legs.

Don't forget what high heels can do for a girl. Giggle However, being 6'4'' myself, I could still call Maks Tiny if I wanted to. Cool

Sorry for my absence... I've been experiencing some weird kind of gastrointestinal thing that has me barfing for days on end, but no fever.  I will feel fine for ten hours and then buckle over with gas bubble pain again.  It must be something I am eating, but it is taking me time to figure out the culprit. 



And it does not lead me to think clearly, so excuse me in advance if I make no sense. Yuck

Sorry for that. Come and join me. I'm still in the claws of the flu, sweating all over, and with a freight train running thru my head. But like good dancing pros, we return when it matters, right?

Same to you. Well, we don't actually have to dance in the finals- unless you'd like to, of course.

You DO have to dance at the Lovely Lady party, Brother and Psychee. It'required. So take your vitamins and anything else that is beneficial and get in shape!

   For her to just start grieving her father when she went on dwts....I just wasn't buying it, but that was her storyline.

Your memory is highly contaminated by your impression of her, Kin.  Most of her packages were not about her dad, and everyone on the show thought she had the sunniest disposition.  That doesn't square with your impression that she was crying every week.   

As for her just dealing with her grief for the first time during the show, I guess you would have had to know how the Australians were viewing her before she did the show.  They thought she was being mind-controlled by her mother because she never cried, and always seemed sunny.  They thought she was unnatural.  What she was, though, was a sort of self-appointed "parentified child", a kid who took on the strong role when her mom was crying with grief -- in her child-like mind, she was holding everybody up, and feared disaster if she let go.  The fear, of course, was that she would lose her mom, too, if she did not stay strong.

Do you remember how often she would say something like "Bye, stay safe" to her mom?  Bindi lived with the fear that any moment, the rest of her family could be taken away, too. 

Her season on DWTS was incredibly therapeutic for her.  Half of the credit for that is Derek's empathy skills, but the other half goes to her, for jumping in to that emotional roller coaster with absolute trust that Derek would keep her safe.  Marilu could have never done it. 

The Australians were mind-boggled by her tearful catharsis and ultimate transformation.  And Bindi hasn't really changed much in the last year from the girl we saw on the show.  Just a year older, and now 18, and probably no longer a virgin after a birthday vacation in a tent with her boyfriend,  but she still idolizes her dad and spends pretty much every waking hour trying to maintain or build on his legacy. She still thinks of herself as just a zoo girl.
