Weekend

Friday is here at last, at last...
Sorry about the cranky woe is me yesterday. After I posted I started thinking about all the amazing women who have been at this much longer and had a harder time than I have and still are childless. What a twat I am. (Nah, don't bother to comment, I know, I know: I'm a NORMAL twat.)

After last weekend's sad pathetic what-the-hell-all-my-friends-are-race-fans and nobody-wants-to-karaoke, I am determined to go tonight. It has been months and months and I am just itching to make a fool out of myself.

The bar we used to go to closed, which is too bad. It was half a block from where we used to live and it was like Cheers - everyone knew your name and worried when you didn't show up. The waitress had your drink as soon as she saw you walking in the door. The woman who ran karaoke was really sweet and nice.
So nothing can be as good as that and many of the karaoke places are weird. There is a place north of here that has a dj who looks like Tom Petty with dark hair. He also likes to sing Tom Petty songs. And he's creepy. We used to go to a place that had karaoke run by a Slovakian Elvis impersonator who would say "Wadda ya tawkin about?" every five minutes along with "teeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaam DRIIIIIINK." He apparently got fired though.

So my big plan for the weekend is to karaoke. After that, who knows. Maybe I'll try and plant those plants I got from my mom last week if they are still alive...

  2. Here via NCLM to say that some good old fashioned Kareoke sounds amazing right now. Seriously, I'm a horrid singer (think someone stepping on a cat) but I don't care at all.

  3. Okay, I totally misspelled that word, I'm sorry. I'm a terrible speller.

  4. Okay, now I MUST go to Indy to karaoke with you on the off chance that we will find some bar where they have rehired the Slovakian Elvis impersonator! I. MUST. SEE. THAT.

    Yes, you are a normal twat. Which reminds me of the time when I was riding around Lubbock with my summer boyfriend and his mom, and we were at a stop sign, and she instructed the car in front of us to "Move your twat!" And seeing as his family was ultra-conservative Catholic, the boyfriend had to ask her exactly what she meant by "twat". And she, being very sheltered, said, "It's like another word for butt, right?" And he didn't have the guts to say the "vagina" word to his mom, so he just said, "yeah, sure." while we snickered under our breath. Ah, good times.

  5. I am notorious for going to a gardening center, buying lots of plants, unloading them from my car, and then letting them wilt in the heat, unplanted and forgotten.

    Sing your heart out this weekend, girlfriend! If you post a video on yoo toob, I promise to watch it lots and lots.

  6. We've got a good old-school karaoke place here (Office Lounge), but no Slovak Elvi. Just good ol' boys. Let me know what you find.

  7. I love a good asian style Karaoke (bootle of booze, small room, lots of friends) the north american style (big bar, loads of people, watered down drinks) terrifies me!

    You are a serious rockstar!

    Whats your favourite song to sing?

  8. wish i lived closer to you---- i'd go drink and sing with you (did i mention drink?) - i am a race hater also (hubby loves it). I bought him tickets to michigan international speedway (when we were still dating of course) i will NEVER, i repeat N-E-V-E-R go to another race as long as i am alive. horrible, sweaty, drunken, smelly, hot, loud, long, and boring are all the adjectives i can think of to describe just how i feel about races. so yes, if i lived closer, i'd hang in a karoke bar with you (and drink - which i haven't done in forever) - too bad.

  10. I dread North American karaoke, too, but I'd sing with you this weekend if the plane ticket fairy would come to visit me.

    Oh, yeah, and normal twat? You make me laugh so much.

    p.s. - do you say "twat" to rhyme with "caught" or "cat"? I prefer the former, but my sister uses the latter and it makes me giggle just thinking of it...

  12. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I just wanted to say that it doesn't matter how long you've been waiting for your family the pain is very real and valid. No one should have to wait for a family. Have a lovely weekend and sing your heart out.

  13. Hope you were able to fulfill your karaoke itch last night!

  14. Step on up, ladies and gentleman, as we present The Amazing Karaokeing Twat! ;)

    For the record, I think venting is good. It does not make you a twat. It just makes you a blogger.

    BTW . . . Hope you don't mind that I added you to my blogroll. I heart your blog! :)

  15. I hope you got your karaoke groove on last night.

    I will be drinking heavily tonight to try to end said funk. I doubt it will work, but it will at least make some time go by a little quicker.

    What exactly makes one a 'normal' twat? (I love it!) In all seriousness- what is the point of having this wonderful place to pour out every emotion if you can't spew out the crap along with the witty commentary? I always feel better- if only fleetingly- when i hit that post button on my most ranting of rants. It's a vent for a reason- if you kept it all in you'd explode. And no one wants to clean up the gooey Io bits off the walls... ;o)
