Why Sewing is a Superhero Ability

As I was sewing Prototype Beta of my body suit, it occurred to me that sewing must be a superhero ability, and a pretty common one at that! I mean, superheroes can’t exactly take their outfits to a seamstress or tailor to get them fixed or duplicated.

Does US Ice Dance Skater Meryl Davis Look Like the Na’vi from Avatar?

Is it me, or every time that I see US ice dance skater Meryl Davis, I think that the Avatar animators stole her looks for the Na’vi creatures in the movie?

Sure looks like a little nose job, war paint and dreadlocks could have made Meryl the sister of Neyteri! The TV pictures are even better, and I wish Neyteri would have smiled for a picture or two! But maybe if Meryl had shown up in the crazy blue jump suits worn by Ukrainian pairs skaters Tatiana Volosozhar and Stanislav Morozov at these same Olympics, it might have convinced you!

Hey, isn’t there a gala show or something after the competition is over? Meryl should maybe come out in that get up and a little blue face paint! She and skating partner Charlie White could do an Avatar epic!

Or maybe do one for the World Championship in Turin next month? Probably too soon but certainly not for next winter! I think they’d have the crowd behind them!

But listen, Meryl, Avatar made a ton of money! There’s no reason a little of it couldn’t be yours! I think you’ve got a great case they stole your beauty for those creatures in that mega-hit movie!

Maybe even better, ask for a starring role in the sequel! When the avatar comes out into the real world!

And takes up ice dancing! No, just kidding! ๐Ÿ™‚

p.s.
Congrats on the silver medal at the ice dance in the Olympics, Meryl and Charlie.
Fantastic show, but Virtue & Moir were just a tad better.
