Eternal Flame

Karaoke Closeup

One of my favorite karaoke songs.  Quite fitting if you ask me.

Karaoke, our favorite pasttime; aside from window shopping, eating in fancy restuarants, and dressing up for Halloween.  We went once more, last Friday, as a tribute to her time in America.  D. was going back to Sydney, Austrialia.

We sang 'our' song, "Pieces of Me" by Ashlee Simpson, neither of us being able to hit the right notes still.  This time, I think I'll blame the subpar food at Cooper 35 (redeeming value were their $4 drinks).

It was a grand ol' time.  As the night wore on, we sang tributes to D. causing her to tear up on more than one occasion:  "You Were Meant for Me" by Jewel,  "The Rose" by Bette Midler, "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen, and my personal solo dedication, "Confessions Part II" by Usher.  I know, I can be so emotionally sadistic sometimes.

We sang our hearts out, she bawled her eyes out, and I hope our melodious tunes will carry her on cloud nine as she takes her one-way trip back to the Land Down Under.  Damn, now why didn't we sing that?

Have a safe trip back D.  You'll be missed.

Karaoke is the PERFECT send off party! Hope it wasn't too sad, though....

Eternal Flame?? MY GOODNESS! I haven't heard that in YEEEEEARS!! And honey, there is not such thing a "right note" in Pieces of Me. Ok FINE, I kinda like Ashlee.

I seriously need to hear you sing Bohemia Rhapsody. LIKE, OMG! That is a hard song to sing!

Jase, it's alright if you can't hit the notes in "Pieces of Me"; even Ashlee Simpson doesn't know that song...
