Elise Christie, a Scottish speed skater who was disqualified twice from races. 

From pathetic internet and mobile trolls, nobodies too afraid to say it to their victims face(s) so they hide behind keyboards and devices.

I got a new purse. It had me at strawberry. I'll be singing "Strawberry Fields Forever" a lot in the coming days. It is a Lulu Guinness, but it is from her JCPenney collection so it isn't nearly as expensive as the ones I'm seeing on her website.

Interesting fact time. Lulu Guinness married into THE Guinness family. This means, indirectly, she is related to Tara Browne, who was the "lucky man who made the grade" and "blew his mind out in a car" in A Day In The Life according to John. One of her two daughters is named Tara, surely no coincidence.

I think, it the UK, that would be a handbag!

Did anyone see the skiing in the Olympics?

Miller won the bronze medal and then the reporter wouldn't shut up about his dead brother until he broke down. It was horrible and disgraceful and pathetic and about every other negative thing you could say. And the worst part is that it was on a 9-hour delay, so they could have cut it out, but they didn't.

EDIT: Still no video, but here's a transcript. Disgusting stuff.

I haven't watched the Olympics this year. I guess I'm more of a Summer Olympic person.

How awful for a the reporter to do such a thing! Some people's children I swear!

Whilst the Christin Cooper should have stopped earlier Miller brought it up and i agree with a tweet Miller posted - "My emotions were very raw, she asked the questions that every interviewer would have, pushing is part of it, she wasnt trying to cause pain." Nearly all journalists would have continued as they are looking for the emotion behind the story, at times more for the emotion nowadays. I don't like how its going that way however. There was an interview with a farmer's wife on the BBC News last Friday afternoon and she was talking about how they were maybe going to have to think of a career move if things don't improve over the next couple of years for them due to the weather, economy etc. At one point the interviewer said to the lady "and i can see a tear on your cheek, its obviously affecting you" to which she laughingly replied "no, its the rain". He then made a joke out of it which is fair enough, what else could he do?

The reporting of the floods and the sound bites by the public has, at times, been dreadful.
