    Is everyone ready to feel REAAAALLLLY old?

    The Kween turns 30 on Wednesday.

    I can distinctly remember the tiny 13 year old wunderkind capturing the attention of the skating world in 1993. I still have my copy of Skating magazine with her first cover...

    I'm remember around Lillehammer there was an article about her. I was reading how she was 12 or 13 and she could do triple lutzs I remember being so jealous lol and I made it a goal to jump like that by the time I was her age... well never happened lol. Had no idea I'd be looking up her for the rest of my life. Happy bday Michelle you're amazing.

    Happy birthday to Michelle!

    I remember when she was 17 at the 1998 Olympics, which now seems like an eternity ago. Granted I was like 8 at the time, but still!

    LOL, I am from the same year. And my father asked me recently : "how old is Michelle Kwan ? She might be a grandma now !"
    I felt very, very old !

    I made up a solution for that a long time ago. I always turn my age around backwards (if it's the right year). Yep, Michelle will be 3 years old on Wednesday and I will be 25 in September.

    Is Michelle still at Tufts? There are many rinks in that area and I have not heard about her going to any of them even for a sporadic practice. Is she skating at all now?

    How'd she suddenly get to be a year older than me? That's strange....
