Hi glad to see you made it home.

Did you get the stuff?

renniekins From: renniekins Date: March 13th, 2004 11:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
I got the videos...thanks! That is very thoughtful of you, and I'm sure they will be useful. Didn't get home 'til 11:30, which is why I didn't call or join the party.

Are you on any messengers right now?

Where is the rest of your team in this picture?
renniekins From: renniekins Date: March 14th, 2004 04:06 pm (UTC) (Link)
The teams are lined up in rows by place, perpendicular to the podium. You can only see one row from this angle.

It was an unexpected discovery when I arrived home. I'll post more on that soon, complete with a picture... (:

Really?! Wow, I was quite sure it was you two, given your prior tricks. hm, the mystery deepens.....

Thank you!!!

So cool! Why did you get to stand on the podium? Were you still wearing your skates, and if so was it hard to climb up there and stand? What are the Marines doing there? Is your goose as proud as you are?
renniekins From: renniekins Date: March 14th, 2004 04:04 pm (UTC) (Link)
I was wearing my skates, yes, and somebody gave me a hand up. I am the team co-captain. The captain and I argued about who would go up ("you go up" "no, you should go up!"), both too nice to admit we wanted to do it, and she somehow won and I did it. I felt really guilty that she wasn't up there with me, but so very VERY elated that I got to do it! It was an unforgetable moment.

My goose seems very proud, yes, thanks!
simplykimberly From: simplykimberly Date: March 14th, 2004 07:31 pm (UTC) (Link)

wheee!

congrats again - you look very happy there, as I imagine anyone should/would when living out a dream like that :)

I can't wait to see more pics of you/your team/your vacation!

Welcome home - sorry about the weather, but we did TRY to give you nice weather here in California ... gorgeous enough, or WHAT?! :)

Hope you feel all better soon!
renniekins From: renniekins Date: March 14th, 2004 11:42 pm (UTC) (Link)

Re: wheee!

Oh wow, I couldn't take that big grin off my face for hours. It was such a wonderful moment.

FABULOUS california weather!! It was perfect, high 70s, low 80s, just what I'd been hoping for. We really lucked out there. Thanks for arranging it for me!

Cool picture. I am sure your deserved victory was paid for by years of hard work. Well done!
renniekins From: renniekins Date: March 15th, 2004 02:36 pm (UTC) (Link)
Thank you! Lots of work, but it was all worth it.
cannibal From: cannibal Date: March 15th, 2004 02:28 pm (UTC) (Link)
Wow, you got to stand on the podium as team captain? Now *that* totally rocks. You look great, too. Even though you probably won't get to keep the crystal trophy. You should stick a "property of..." sticker on the back of it, so maybe someday the skating club will clean out their trophy case and give it to you.
renniekins From: renniekins Date: March 15th, 2004 02:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
YES!!! It was the most amazing experience. I'll tell you all about it when I see you.

It's a silver plate actually. But I don't need it...I have the memory of accepting it, and pictures, that's extraordinary all by itself.
stillriver From: stillriver Date: March 15th, 2004 08:39 pm (UTC) (Link)
That's a great photo. Congratulations! You've definetly deserved it!
renniekins From: renniekins Date: March 17th, 2004 08:10 am (UTC) (Link)
Thank you very much! (:
cannibal From: cannibal Date: March 16th, 2004 12:03 pm (UTC) (Link)
Very nifty... but who is more likely to demand a boy's head on a silver platter, you or the skating club? I'm thinking you. ;-)
