View Full Version : A little gift from Michelle to the forum

May 9th, 2003, 10:23 PM
Yes, I still have to finish my report of the presentation, but I wanted to post this. When we went backstage after the show, I brought one of my pictures that I took at Worlds. I asked her if she could sign it to MKF. She, of course, was happy to. In fact, she went over and beyond what I asked. I scanned it in for you guys. Check it out:

Such a sweet gift. Thanks Heather and thanks Michelle. You both ROCK!

May 10th, 2003, 08:26 AM
Well I have to admit, Michelle is right...we do pretty much rock...:lol

Thanks for sharing this, Heather!

May 10th, 2003, 08:28 AM
Yes, Michelle was totally sweet in signing the picture!! Heather first showed her the picture and she was like "Ahhhh" and was taking her time looking through the pictures that Heather had. Heather then explained them to Michelle, and Michelle gladly signed them. It was kind of cute, because at first, it was hard for her to write, so I put out my COI book for her to write on. And she went above and beyond what Heather had hoped for.......so afterwards, we were again INCREDIBLY touched my Michelle's generousity and graciousness!!!

I also have pictures of the three phases of how she came about signing the picture.......when she was looking at it, Heather explaining it and then, of course, Michelle signing the picture! :)

May 10th, 2003, 08:35 AM
Michelle rocks too!!!!!! We wouldn't rock if it weren't for Michelle, because then they're wouldn't be a MKF, so Michelle rocks too!!! Thanks Michelle, and thank you Heather for scanning the pic!:RB

May 10th, 2003, 08:40 AM
Heather, Thank you, thank you!:RB

Colleen, I love the picture and am looking forward to your detailed report!

May 10th, 2003, 09:03 AM
How sweet Michelle is to her fans, thank you Heather. I am saving it in my picture files. Cole, can't wait for you to share your pics and report...

Michelle and MKF - :RB :RP :RB :RP :RB :RP :RB :RB :RP

May 10th, 2003, 09:08 AM
Thank you Heather. Wonderful picture . The autograph, with a message from her is just the greatest touch. Michelle is the gift that keeps on giving and giving. What a wonderful year this has been.

May 10th, 2003, 09:12 AM

Skatingfan2002 and Valerie - ITA!!! We should tell the KWeen that we have re-invented the spelling of the word "rock" in her favor!!! :lol I bet she would find it hilarious that we now use RACH on this board rather than ROCK hahaha!! ;)

Very nice! Thanks!!

May 10th, 2003, 06:59 PM
Thanks for the great picture!

Erin, I loved "holy Button"!! Somehow I"m going to have to fit that into a conversation (hopefully with a skating fan).

May 10th, 2003, 07:24 PM
Holy Button is cute :) ...My fav is Holy Salchow :b

What a wonderful gift from Michelle! You Rach too Michelle!!! (Wouldn't it be great if we could get her to spell it Rach? :) )

May 10th, 2003, 07:45 PM
That is so sweet! Michelle is the greatest and so is the MKF!

May 10th, 2003, 08:15 PM
That's so cool! LOL, at first when I saw the word rock, it didn't look right, and I realized that I'm too used to seeing it spelled rach here!

Thanks for sharing it with us Heather....are you trying to give us little tidbits so we don't go mad waiting for the website to be ready??:lol

la ah
May 11th, 2003, 03:01 AM

May 11th, 2003, 08:10 PM
*gasps* awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!! I love it! I love it!!!

Erin wouldnt tell me what it was since i couldnt get to the forum earlier and she told me over the phone today that it was a gift from MK to us. I flew through that lifeguard course and couldnt wait to log onto MKF to see what it was. It was the perfect gift after i missed the ABC challenge earlier. :D

This is so awesome, thank you, Heather!!

LOL, ITA, someone really should have told her about our MKF-MK centered vocabulary words! (wait, didnt we include one in the scrapbbok?) Now these words i wouldnt mind using in school every day! :rollin :rollin I mean, cmon, when you hear "fog" do you really think "weather" anymore? I dont. :lol

May 12th, 2003, 04:18 AM
Great picture, Heather, and it was so sweet of Michelle to sign it for us! You BOTH rach ! (Yes, Michelle does need a spelling lesson.)

May 12th, 2003, 05:06 AM
Thanks Heather for doing that and for sharing it with us. You and Michelle both Rach!!!

May 12th, 2003, 06:02 AM
Aggie-I'm just happy it was a course and not an actual lifeguard shift! If I were you, I'd have to work REALLY hard focusing on my task instead of being up in Kloud Kwan. I'll check my tape for you later today (one final down! YES!):D

In the future, you need to wear a sandwich board. Warning: Mind not on saving you, am missing Michelle on ABC Challenge.:lol

I'm so happy you finally saw it...I'm glad you were surprised...surprises from the gift season tend to Rach. It's set as my wallpaper now. My mom saw it and I think she gets it now. "Wow, Michelle knows who you crazy people are?" I said "Yes! And she loves her wackos.":D ;) She also noted how Michelle just signed 'Michelle', like an informal friendly thing...Aw!


P.S. Aggie, Yes, I compiled all our words and made an MKF "Dicitionary of Michellingo" for Michelle's scrapbook...gosh seems like so long ago! There ended up being a ton of words in there, and 'Rach' was one of them. LOL, Cole--there will be a quiz.:lol

*still not over the fact that Michelle has the scrapbook...heck I'm still not over Worlds, Baby!*

May 12th, 2003, 07:49 AM
When Michelle acknowledges MKF.... it makes being a member just that much more special, doesn't it? She is definitely one of a kind in the world of figure skating.

aww!!! that is SOOOO sweet fo her!!

wow. if we get thisfired up over a few words, imagine what we'd do if she wrote a full letter!!! *oohhhhh!!!!*

Michelle :RP !

Hey! she used "Rocks!" instead of our beloved "Rachs!" LOL!!! :RB :rollin

May 13th, 2003, 07:15 PM
:lol Give her time, she hadn't gone through the dictionary yet...

Be patient, she'll learn how to spell RACHS!;) :lol

PS-Isn't it just beautiful? I still can't believe she did that, she is so wonderful.

May 13th, 2003, 07:36 PM
That is so great!! I was so excited when I first saw it. I didn't post right away because I've been so busy lately, but Heather THANK YOU so much! And of course a huge thank you to Michelle as well, for signing the picture like that! It's awesome!
The first thing I thought was also how she misspelled "rock" LOL! I was trying to imagine the letters spelling it "rach" and it kinda works if you squint a little! lol
Michelle is just so awesome to her fans, I can't get over it, and it just makes me love her more and more, even though it doesn't seem like that should be possible!
Oh wow, I am on such a high right now...can't wait for all the reports either! :D :D :D

May 13th, 2003, 07:47 PM
Thanks Heather! I'm so glad that Michelle signed it! That's amazing! It's such a lovely pic of her too! She must be flattered!! :lol
I can't wait for the reports either!
BTW, I see "rach" too! Lol!

May 13th, 2003, 10:48 PM
And thanks to Heather too for asking her to sign this for us.;) :D :) :SE :CK :TJL :FBO
