    She doesn't live anymore, but for me would have been Sonja Henie. She pushed the figure skating in a direction which influenced till now and she made films during the Golden Age of Hollywood. Must have been very interesting to meet her!

    Meet? Medvedeva.


    Have a fun lunch with? Any of the top juniors. Most of the kids are fun or funny, especially at the table

    On second thoughts ... Tamara Moskvina. She's so knowledgeable and has great anecdotes.

    Also, I noticed in her TSL interview, she turns every possible negative into a positive. Including questions, she'll turn them around to the person who asked her a question, and convert it to a positive.

    I actually met Mishin and he was really nice. Even drew me a cool picture when I asked for an autograph! Not at all what I expected. Yuna and Brian Orser were really nice too. Looking at my albums I can’t believe how many skaters I did meet. (Thanks to my ridiculous stalking skills at skate America 2005, 2007 and 2009.)

    But one that I never met...Michelle Kwan!!!

    I would like to have lunch with Kurt Browning and Jason Brown. The energy would be infectious and I imagine the conversation would be hysterically entertaining,

    Mao.

    Javi We'd talk about cats because that's the most important thing in the world, I'd embarrass myself by trying to speak Spanish and would stare at his eyelashes forever. I'm sure it would be fun.

    Although if Toller were still here
    Dick Button is the first person that popped into my mind. But I didn't mention it because I know I'd want to talk with him for way more than an hour!

    If I am totally honest, I have already spent an hour in a restaurant with the skater that instantly popped into my head when I saw this thread:

    Giorgia Isabella Sechi

    <<< If you want to see us together, just look at my avatar!

    She is just the loveliest person you could ever meet! A real pleasure to spend time with. To the extent that you don't even notice that time is passing.

    But, I'm not sure if this counts, because we didn't have a meal. For the simple reason that the restaurant was closed at the time (the restaurant in question is her family's business, so it was a handy place to arrange to meet).

    So, if we return to the hypothetical, there are loads of skaters that I would like to spend an hour with. But, if we are talking going to restaurants, there is no question as to who my answer would be:

    Liza Tuktamysheva

    As if I could choose anybody else to go on a date with!

    Yuna Kim. Not least because she has been so chary of publicly revealing herself (e.g. letting slip her private sentiments).

    At first, Robin Cousins came in mind, but I changed, because I would be terribly nervous/excited in front of him and could be totally stupid. One houris too long

    I love Midori as much as I love Robin, and I could be nervous, but she is like my younger sister with sunny personality, so, I think one hour is too short.

    Plushy! But I'd probably embarrass myself by flailing my arms like
    Kermit the Frog


    Failing that I'd kinda like to meet Brendan Kerry

    Probably Michelle Kwan as she's actually my age! I was thinking of current skaters, but they're just kids so it'd be kinda weird. Maybe Jason Brown...
