"Kit", they said. "We need your powers
to represent this land of ours.
We need your beauty and your skill
To win the day. Please say you will!"

"I'm sorry, boys", our Kit replied.
"There is no way I can abide.
I'm busy writing lines of verse.
Take my sis. You could do worse."

"But she's not you!" She heard them moan.
"Her beauty will not match your own!"
It mattered not. They could not find
A way to make her change her mind.

On her sister then, the job befell
Though less than Kit she did quite well.
They dressed her up, made her rehearse
And she became Miss Universe!!!


Congrats to Miss Canada, chosen as Miss Universe last night!

Another reason we are kind of proud up here now.  I am glad it was a "sister" who won.    
Contratulations to her, she will do our country proud I am sure.

This is a great link to see more pictures of our Russian-born Canadian winner. (Pages of Kit's sister Balladeer.)

LOL, I tried to whip up a little poetic
response for you Michael ...

but ...

You've left me speechless, lol.  

Congrats to my "sister"!
She is adorable ... and so are you!  

PS, when I was watching the show the other night,
I must have missed that gal from
Toeragia while I was channel surfing through
some of the commercials - I have
a feeling I'd have remembered her.
