Alphabe-Thursday..."M" as in MISTAKE

I thought I'd jump in here and try and get a post up for Alphabe-Thursday this go around.  I haven't been reading or posting much lately and thought this might get me back in the groove.

Gosh, talk about getting back in the groove.  I've been telling myself I'd start walking again for exercise, but that hasn't gotten off the ground yet either.  Oh well, the longest journey begins with the first step.

So, welcome to Alphabe-Thursday sponsored by Ms. Jenny over at Jenny Matlock..."off on my tangent."  This week we are studying the letter "M" as in MISTAKE.

This week coincides with the Suchi Winter Olympics and since I thoroughly enjoy the ice skating events I thought I'd do my post on ice skating costume MISTAKES.  Like this one...
They actually won the bronze medal at Vancouver with a "Send In The Clowns" routine, but the costumes weren't exactly my cup of tea.

How about these?

You can see more MISTAKES here.  Personally, I didn't think they were all that bad, but some definitely could have been better!  Shouldn't the costumes add to the routine and not be a distraction?  What do you think?

Now head over to Ms. Jenny's blog to visit this week's letter "M" posts.

Thanks for stopping by...


  1. Great post and photos for M ~ will have to try and watch some TV such as that ~ Happy Weekend to you ~

    thanks, carol and artmusedog

  2. Some of those costumes are just plain ridiculous! I like the ones that are more traditional with some glitz and glamour!

  3. Hello and I like that for M. I agree with you - I remember the days they were so simply yet elegant and free flowing. Those were kind of wild. sandie

  4. I do like the skating, but you are right about the costumes! Funny in fact!

  5. Yikes! Looks like Halloween in ice!...:)JP

  6. Who would be a costume designer not me lol

  9. Ha! Yep, the costumes should NOT distract from the skating. ;))
