Miss America

Okay, guys.  My mother just reminded me of something very important.  Tonight is the Miss America pageant.  Now normally the Miss America pageant would not be cause to celebrate, but this year, things are different.  This year, Miss Minnesota is….wait for it…


I know!

My beloved home state, Minnesota, is being represented by a violist at the Miss America pageant.  The Miss America pageant is a highly accurate assessment of a young woman’s worth, so it is a great honor, and enormous step forward, that the viola community will finally be represented.  Although I do not know Nicole Swanson, I do know her older sister.  The Swansons are perfect Minnesotans- tall, blond, and nice….AND THEY’RE ALL VIOLISTS.  This is a wonderful day for violists and Minnesotans everywhere.

I am praying to GOD that she makes it into the top ten and then plays a Hindemith solo sonata, or something equally jarring, in the talent competition.  THAT WOULD ROCK SO HARD!

So set your TiVos, America. Let’s cheer on our new Viola Queen.

(Oh, and if the allure of the violist isn’t enough to excite you, this whole circus is being hosted by Mario Lopez, a.k.a Slater.)

    Hey Kate! I’m not sure if you’ll read this or not, but I wanted to say hi. Being one of my sister Nicole’s biggest fans, I was just being a dork and googleing her name…and I saw your blog spot that mentioned you knew me. I scrolled down to see who you were, and was suprised it was you. Hope you are doing well! You have a cute blog:) and I love your pictures.
