Sing along with Ldy

Went to karaoke last night... sang pretty terribly for the most part, but had a great time.

I've always been ultra-sensitive about my singing voice... namely, because I've never had one (to speak of). I've always been embarrassed about it, so a few years ago I started practicing. At the computer, in the shower, wherever.

Last night, I sang "These Boots Were Made for Walkin'," "Chrome Plated Heart," "Don't Get Around Much Anymore," and "Like the Way I Do." They weren't great, but I didn't send people screaming from the room. "Chrome Plated Heart" was even pretty darned good.

Two milestones here-- 1. I've improved my singing voice, and can probably improve it further, and 2. I wasn't embarrassed or super self-conscious about it-- I had fun.

So, woot.

Other highlights: Eman sang a special song for me, which was really sweet : ) Joanna is now engaged, which is awesome. A wheelchair-bound Elvis totally rocked the house. I caught the flu.

I've had this nasty bug all day. Missed work; even missed my class (which I haven't had for two months and had really been looking forward to). All I did all day was sleep. About ready to continue that.... but wanted to share these, first

Nifty art-in-progress-- go help right now

Yet another nifty quiz-- I am THE OTTER (coocookachoo)
That one was so on-target that it gives me chills. And in the collective sense, I am part of a prank-- teehee. : )

Heard that a couple good friends were getting some nasty tips online, and thought of this song. I could just see the two of you singing it for some reason (*hugs*). (I considered complimenting you both on your commendable crotch hygiene, but oh well.)

I leave you with one of my favouritist songs of all time...

I'm Going To Go Back There Someday
Written by Paul Williams; performed by Gonzo in The Muppet Movie

This looks familiar, vaguely familiar,
Almost unreal; yet, it's too soon to feel yet.
Close to my soul, and yet so far away.
I'm going to go back there someday.

Sun rises, night falls; sometimes the sky calls.
Is that a song there, and do I belong there?
I've never been there, but I know the way.
I'm going to go back there someday.

Come and go with me, it's more fun to share,
We'll both be completely at home in midair.
We're flyin', not walkin', on featherless wings.
We can hold onto love like invisible strings.

There's not a word yet for old friends who've just met.
Part heaven, part space, or have I found my place?
You can just visit, but I plan to stay.
I'm going to go back there someday.
I'm going to go back there someday.

The tune is amazing haunting, while the lyrics kinda sum-up my sappy feelings towards the net, and the people I've met through it. I'm a cheezeball, I know. No need to remind me ; )

Hugs to you all.
I'll be back.
