Michelle and Clay say Merry Christmas (from Michelle's twitter page).
For those interested, the MK forum is up again now. Michelle just posted a Christmas message. Mentions her whirlwind honeymoon in St. Moritz, then jetting off to Korea for the Special Olympics, etc.
Michelle's work on behalf of athletes with disabilities as been cited by the U.S. State Department as one of the top thirteen (number five) "Stories that Shaped 2013."

LOL, even Kwan can get starstruck, I guess. (Or maybe Raisman and she have a pre-existing friendship as fellow Olympic medalists?)
^ Michelle and Aly are old curling buddies.
Here is Michelle watching Mirai's exhibition skate at Nationals. People who were there say she was visibly moved by the performance and by Mirai's difficult situation, and she left immediately after Mirai skated. (Thanks to photographer belladella and to poster teach23 at the MK Forum.)
Fanboying from Jason Brown:
(golden411 had posted the earlier tweets elsewhere, but Jason's tweet was from today)

.@ArsenioHall you should've been there! @jasonbskates skated brilliantly & I had a chance to give him a congratulatory hug @USFigureSkating

And then today's very cute tweet from Jason:

(2) Unrelated funny photo from @charlieawhite:
.@meryledavis and @MichelleWKwan having a nice conversation while I look on like- "whoa we're being interviewed by Michelle Kwan"
I'm assuming Michelle is in Sochi covering the event for Fox Sports? I saw some of her pre Olympic interviews with Jeremy Abbott, Gracie Gold and Ashley Wagner which were illuminating.
I wish she were doing commentary though!
Yes, Michelle is doing features for Fox Sports 1. Links are listed in this thread on the MK Forum:
Here she is in Sochi with the Protopopovs.
