Ok....so I got the first official "Atlanta Nationals" phone call for the week Heather called all excited and was already gushing and nothing has started yet. Oh god...what are we in for?
Well, both Heather's and Dawn's flights made it to Atlanta safely and on time!! They said that Atlanta airport is HUGE and it took them forever to find the baggage claim!
Once they settled into the hotel, they went exploring. I guess they're staying in one of the official hotels, but not one of the hotels with a shuttle. So they went off in search of shuttle information. On the way there, Dawn was leading Heather....basically the "blind leading the blind" if you ask me While walking, the "Don't Walk" sign was flashing but it wasn't red, it was white...so Dawn started crossing and Heather followed her and they proceeded to have cars flying towards them...OOPS!
They finally made it to the place they needed to be and got in line to get their credentials and everything. As they were waiting in line, they heard someone come up behind them, turned around, and noticed that Peggy Fleming was standing behind them. So, skater sighting #1!!!
Apparently Dawn also doesn't know how to read a map...so it took them a while to get back to the hotel. Once they were finally there, they started checking out their hotel room and realized that there was what looked like a microwave in their closet. All befuddled by this, they were like "Umm...ok" and let it be. Turns out, it was the SAFE!!! LOL
Dawn's really excited because Nancy Kerrigan is being inducted into the USFSA Skating Hall of Fame this week so she's beyond herself because she adores Nancy and Nancy is going to be in the area this week.
Dawn's first volunteering shift is tomorrow and she has to get up at like 3:30AM!! CRAZY!!!
Finally, in the official nationals scorebook thing that they both got, Michelle Kwan's short program is the same as last year....the peter gabriel one. Cassie and Noe will enjoy that
Ooh...yeah, Dawn and Heather might be able to catch SOI on tv tomorrow. If so, Dawn is going to need DOUBLE DROOL BUCKETS because she'll get to see John Zimmerman there and then she gets to watch Peter T practice tomorrow as well. She's one happy woman!
