Tonight was to be a big night - the Annual Miss America Party! Every year Bubba's Mom and I, along with our closest beauty queen friends, gather with our crowns on to eat, drink, be silly, and watch the Miss America pageant on TV. But alas, this year I am sick. And no one wants my germs. And I feel like ca-ca. So no party.
Bubba's Mom made a big pot of homemade soup tonight, so I went to her house, ate soup, curled up on her couch with my crown and sweats on, and watched the pageant. There's nothing like having your mama when you're sick, is there?
I must say, the pageant was much better than last year. Miss America has changed so much over the years - some of the changes good, some not. We miss the days of a September crowning in Atlantic City, of Bert Parks singing "There she is....." But we still got to see the swimwear, the beautiful evening gowns, and the always entertaining talent competition (our favorite part!). They still answered relevant interview questions, altho not much was said about their platforms. In the end Miss Indiana was crowned Miss America 2009, and we were good with that. They even played a recording of Bert Parks singing that famous song as she walked the runway. But we missed Katie Lady and D... - we'll do it next year, girls! Keep those crowns polished!
I Could Use Less Excitement, Too
