~first post of '09~

Ugghhhh.. why oh why do I subject myself to this?? I thought I had learned *finally* my lessson about drinking too much. I haven't felt like this in a long long time, because I *thought* I have learned how to control myself. Oh well..I blame it on the atmosphere. I was a good girl though and stopped drinking 3 hours before we decided to go home. We planned on staying the night there, but I just really really wanted my own bed! And I really really didn't need to continue drinking anyways. But anywho.. we had a good time. I got to smooch my hubby at midnight for the 7th year in a row :) And we've been celebrating with some of the same people for that long as well!
One of my friends from high school and her husband hung out with us. At some point we decided it would be fun to call my parents and tell them we were planning on signing kareokee sometime soon and then spend the night at their house (this will happen when the third girl we were besties with comes back to visit from NC). I asked my dad if he wanted to come and sing kareokee with us.. here's how that convo went.
Me: Daaadd, you wanna come and shing kkareokee with ush?
Dad: I'll come and watch, but i'm not singing.
Me: But daadd, if you could shing any song you wanted, what would it be?
And he breaks out in full tune, right off the top of his head. Like it took him absolutely no time to think about this... "These boots are made for walking, and that's just what they'll do. One of these days these boots are gonna walk right over you."
Reealllyy Dad?? Do you practice this in the mirror when you're getting ready for work??? He's too funny. I think my mum said in the background that she'd sing Sweet Caroline, but I'm not sure!
What's everyone's token kareokee song?? Mine you ask?
  • Strawberry Wine
  • Hotel California
  • Don't Stop Believing
  • Bohemion Rhapsody

I'm sure there's more, but I can't think of any. It's been too long!! I wonder if anyone even shares my deep love for kareokee?

Anyway.. I plan on doing absolutely NOTHING today. I've had to nights in a row of 5 hours of sleep, so i'll probably be doing some catching up on that!!

Sounds like y'all had a great time!! I was a bum and watched movies with my mom and little bro all night. Kevin works nights right now, so we couldn't celebrate together this year. But on the bright side, I didn't wake up with a hangover, so that's always a plus, right?
And I've never worked up the guts to humiliate myself in public by singing before. I can't carry a tune, so it would be painful for everyone there!! If I had to though, it would probably be Aerosmith "What it takes". Great song to belt out and sing horribly!
