I don't know how anyone does it

I'm talking about blogging. Ok, well, blogging isn't really the hard part. The time management part is. Blogging is unbelievably time consuming....I had to take a break from it for a while because I have daily responsibilities to take care of. Seriously, I can sit here and read blogs for HOURS. Plus I'm a procrastinator so it doesn't help me with my time management.

Crazy, crazy, crazy....

Tone deafness can be fun

My first karaoke experience was horrible. At least I think it was my first....that I remember anyways. I was forced to go...yeah, see what had happened was about 3 years ago, a group of friends and I went out to a bar and it was karaoke night. I was in a mellow mood, just wanted to chill out, didn't even have a drink (I couldn't even if I wanted to, I was 19 at the time). My friends were boozing it up, crackin jokes, gossiping, having a good time. Suddenly, I had the urge to go to the bathroom so I went. When I came back, my friend Alison started to laugh and told me she wrote a song and my name on a piece of paper and gave it to the DJ. I'm a horrible singer but despite that fact, I still love to sing. Just not in front of total strangers. And the song she picked was one I didn't even like and hardly knew the words to. I know that the words were on the screen but that doesn't matter. You have to know the melody, rhythm, and etc. The song was Don't Speak by No Doubt. I love the band No Doubt but that song is horrible, I hate it. Haha, I butchered the song since I didn't really know it except for the chorus. Alison sang the song with me but that didn't matter. When we were done, she told me, "See? That wasn't so bad."

WHATEVER. I was embarrassed....probably sounded like I was drunk even though I was the only sober one in the group, lol. One would think that from that awful experience that I would never karaoke again. But no. My second time wasn't so bad. Actually, I had a blast! It was the day after my 21st B-day. So I had a few drinks before I went up there....didn't help with the nerves though. I sang the song horribly but I had fun doing it since it was a song that I knew and loved. The song was Strong Enough by Cher. Yes, CHER, don't hate! lol I even had a small group of people dancing to the song as I sang. That made me really happy.

When I told that story to my co-worker, she got excited. She always wanted to do karaoke but couldn't find anyone that was willing to do it with her. Now she's dying to go with me and a couple of other folks from work. Don't know when this is going to happen. And I want to "practice" some songs before this day, if it ever comes. I just don't know what's considered good karaoke songs. Most of the songs that I cherish are unbeknownst to the mainstream crowd.

The song that I truly want to sing next is Beggin' by Frankie Valli. But all I find on the internet is the Pilooski re-edit remix.

Since I haven't heard the original, I don't know how much of a difference it is.
Maybe I should do some Journey or AC/DC....
"Yeah you, shook me all night long!!"
Ahh yeah <3
I'm getting nervous and excited just thinking about performing. It's so fun even just watching others sing songs whether they are good or bad at it. I love karaoke.

Snow Day!

Even though I cannot stand the snow, I'm kinda happy that we are getting about 10 inches today, I think. I don't know why I'm happy about this! Plus I have 3 kids to watch at the moment since they don't have school because of the storm. I want to go out and build a snowman with them. It'll just be a plain one though. I don't have any scarves or hats for it. Are snowmen just a holiday thing?

Oh well, one is going to get made today =]

My friend Anthony told me that the fact that I try to see the good in everyone is a weakness. Some people are just born evil.

What do you think?

Not the same

Friday night with Alex was....meh. We went to see a movie and then hung out at his place afterwards. I try to make conversation but whatever I talk about, dies pretty quickly. Making conversation with anyone is a pretty difficult task for me to do.

With Alex, it's just damn near impossible. I can't really open up to him and be myself around him anymore. Now I'm just up-tight, quiet...BORING. Ahh, I don't like to be thought of as a boring person! -.-
