hey aaron, would you mind if i did previews for the website, or do you have someone doing that already? cause if you do, then i could do some articles during the tournament too. and if you already have that, then let me know what kind of stuff i could do to help out. thanx!

Aaron, maybe not use these for articles but possibly put in photo section as *early* pictures. Sometimes it is hard to find pics of players during their early years of playing. :D

King Aaron
Aug 30th, 2002, 10:40 AM
Kerry, it's a great idea. + I still have some Fed Cup photos to update. Unfortunately, Amanda hasn't been around and it'll be pointless if I add now since she won't be able to approve it.

Nevermind, I moved my lazy but (or should I say lazy fingers?) and saw that anna will play at something-with-three-letters Polo Open in Shanghai, China, (as the top seed?) and then Toyota Princess Cup (?) in japan (?) . Now can someone please tell me when do these tournaments begin?
Thanks!

Irish
Aug 30th, 2002, 08:07 PM

Looks like your question is answered Karen! :D

Mitzi
Aug 31st, 2002, 06:30 PM
Thank you so much Kerry. So I guess I'll be able to make the previews for both (provided the draw for the Toyota Princes Cup will be out at the 15th).
Since I'm going to join the army at the 17th of September, I doubt I'll be able to make previews for the following two weeks after that (if Anna will play than), since the army won't let me go home probably :(

King Aaron

Mitzi
Sep 2nd, 2002, 06:47 AM
Kerry and Aaron, you're so sweet! :kiss: :kiss: :kiss:
My basic training or boot camp, or watever it's called, will be for two and a half weeks probably. I still don't know if I'll serve in an opened base (which will mean I'll go home every day, and making previews would be easy :) ), or a closed base (then I'll go home every other weeked, so when they let me home I can do the previews too :) ).
Anyway, I'm scared out of my mined, but I just found out my high school final exams (the bagrut, or mutriculation, in English) and I passed all of the test with very high grades! so I'll porget about the crappy army for today...
Anyway, whenever possible I'd be happy to make Anna previews and other articles :D

Mitzi
Sep 2nd, 2002, 06:50 AM
oh, I've wrote that so fast, please forgive me for all the spelling ang grammer mistakes (btw, did I mention I got a 96 in the highest level of english exam? :D ).

Mitzi
Sep 2nd, 2002, 06:16 PM
Thank you so much, Kerry, you made me smile :D you're so sweet :kiss:
I've just found out that the day before I join the army is "Yom Kipur". It's a Jewish holiday in which you can't eat or drink anything, can't use electricity, go to the cinagoge... So a celebration for me joining the army won't be possible :fiery: Just my luck :rolleyes:

You`re the sweet one Karen. :kiss: Maybe you could binge the day before Yom Kippur and you would be too full to want to eat or drink on that day. :) Be very careful on Sep 11....we try to look out for you guys even though you are very good at holding your own. :hearts:

Alright, you must be an `old` friend of Aaron`s. I am protective of him. :)

Irish
Sep 3rd, 2002, 07:24 AM
Oh yeah, Karen, your basic is 2 1/2 weeks!! You all must stay up 24 hours and get everything done and learned quick. Ours is the shortest for the U.S. and it is 6 weeks. Marines are 11 weeks! :eek:

Mitzi
Sep 3rd, 2002, 09:32 AM
wow, six weeks! :eek: Basic training here is according to what you're going to do in the army, so mine might be longer than two and a half weeks.
Since Yom Kipur is Monday (and I join the army on 7 AM Teusday morning), I'll probably have a party on Friday or Saturday... We start the fast on Sunday night having a big dinner with the family, and the fast ends 25 hours later, at Monday night. Since we can't do anything but read books, we usually just go out and walk a lot, the only problem being that it's hot as hell here...
I hope it goes ok, I'm not good with not eating or drinking for a long time :(
Well, 14 more days to go!

King Aaron
Sep 3rd, 2002, 12:26 PM
Oh no!!!! :( Poor Karen. Just your luck. Well, make sure you stock up before Yom Kipur ;) and I'm sure you'll tough it out!! :D oh and..'it's getting hot in here, so take off all your clothes....' ;)
