|Ilia's First Earthquake
July 8, 1998
Phoenix, Arizona USA
Im so excited to have this website and fan club! I found out through the website
"The Romeo of Figure Skating" about the Krew. I left a note on the guest book
and that was that.
The first meeting? It was on my birthday. I felt so happy! I never got in
my life such a big birthday, so many people congratulating me and happy for me because it
was my birthday. On that day I had two shows -- I end up just sleeping. The next day was
day off and we went to a Russian restaurant in Miami where we sang Russian songs!
You know, I was so happy with the Krew, especially with the chain that holds things... a
key holder. I love it! I dont know why. I put it outside on my
computer bag. And even some of the skaters, some of them have computers now also. They
were so jealous! Its because of the fan club. Alexei Yagudin and Anton Sikharulidze
have computers now, Oleg Ovsiannikov is going to buy one -- so everyones starting
something like that.
I would like to get a digital camera and from month to month give the website pictures of
where I am. Maybe you can know some good kinds to get? Competitions, with other
receptions, practice with skaters. In Hawaii, a camera to go surfing and bungy jumping
In Los Angeles, I am dying to meet Krew! I will be nervous, but I am excited
also. I dont know what to expect. Out of the rink -- well, it is a
different person sometimes when you are the off the rink. Im a bit nervous
Okay, I will talk to you next time!
