I’ve been so amused watching Shawn Johnson this week, as she reminds me soooo much of Starbuck.  They look pretty similar from a distance (well, a teenage Starbuck, anyway) and the little serious face that Shawn makes when running?  OMG.  It’s the exact same face that Starbuck makes when she concentrates hard on something.  I’m probably the only person on earth that’s noticing this and being this amused, but hey, gotta find your amusement where you can. 

(Starbuck was a short little muscly gymnast back in the day herself, and still has that same basic shape, although she’s now 5’0″ and claims to be waiting for her late 20’s (well, now early 30’s) growth spurt.  Used to coach gymnastics for several years, too, so it’s really her “thing.”)

    Hmmm, it has been a few years since I met her, but you know what, I can see that. I am really enjoying watching the gymnastics. I did it for 7 years, but was never any good at it – am waaaayyyyy too tall to be a gymnast (couldn’t tell that to my 7 year old self though!)
