    I sing a song of Kwan, to honor the Kween on this, the day of her birth: :D

    And yea, all those in the Land of Kwan did fall unto their knees, blessing the anniversary of the day the heavens opened up and the Kwan was bestowed upon the earth, 31 summers ago. The glorious Kwan ruled the realm of the figure skaters for nigh a decade, amassing national, world and Olympic medals during her reign...bequeathing overmany treasured moments, inspiring future skaters and champions, such as the illustrious Queen Yu-Na, who resides in the Land of Kim. Yea, the Kween left a fullsome legacy in her wake...but naught lasts forever.

    Forsooth, the Kwan hath departed from the Land of Kwan for nigh 6 summers! The absence of the Kween hath been felt by her loyal and humble subjects. No longer dost the sun shine as brightly, nor dost the song sound as sweet...Thus the Kween departed from her land, taking resplendent gifts and talents, pure light and flat-out awesomeness to share with the peoples of other lands.

    Yea, the Kwan hath left her Kwandom, but the marvelous gifts she bequeathed during her reign will live on forever in the hearts and minds of those who love her dearly. And on this day, we remember the birth of the Kwan and raise our voices in adoration and cry: Huzzah! Huzzah! Huzzah! All hail the Kween! All hail the Kween! Long live the Kween! Long live the Kween!
    :saint:

    Happy Birthday to the Kween! :D

    Love Grant! And happy birthday to the Kween - it's great to see her mature from the little kid who could barely see over the boards to such a lovely woman.

    31?!?! It doesn't seem that long ago that she was just 13! :lol:

    Happy birthday to the one and only Kween! Wishing her as much happiness on her birthday and in her future endeavors as her skating has brought to her many fans!

    Just so I don't have to start yet another MK thread, did anyone else spot her in the audience on So You Think You Can Dance last night? I wasn't sure if I just imagined her or not!
