Karaoke Queens

Look at my new desk (and chair, courtesy of Shauna)...

Crafty, eh?

This is what happens when you sell your furniture before you move.

In other news, I had a good weekend.

Although I did not see the shemale again (thus thwarting my chance to befriend him/her), I did meet my long-lost friend, Suzanne, out for a drink last Friday night.

I knew her 10 years ago when we were both in an Air Force training program. I was 23 and she was 30, and I remember thinking at the time that she was "really old." Anyway, she lives in Tucson now (and is moving to DC the week after me... so I can see her again there!), and we reconnected after all these years.

Of course, I forgot to take a picture of us (and my old pics are all in storage), but she looks great, and she reminded me of many stories I wish I had forgotten... namely, she was with me when I totalled my Jeep in 1997 at Big Bend National Park and had to be rescued by a bunch of deer hunters who brought us back to our campsite on a bed of dried corn... but that's a story for another day.

Then last evening, Ingrid hosted a girl's night chocolate fondue and karaoke "pre-party" for the big final event next Friday night. I didn't realize I was such a karaoke whore. God, I love that machine. I found that my voice is most similar to Pat Benatar, Patsy Cline, Nancy Sinatra, and Blondie. I also do a mean Cockney accent on any Madness tune. So I'm ready for next weekend.

Also in attendance... Iva...

...AKA "Madame Roxette"

Anna G...

... AKA "The Dixie Chick"

Plus The Moos ("Miss Kris Kross") and Katie ("Lady Wilson Phillips")...


As an added bonus, here's a sampling of Ingrid ("Wasted & Gay George Michael") singing Faith...

What stage presence!!!
