whoo - karaoke!

so! we did go, and we did sing. it turned out to be just me, cheetahmaster, and anne. which was cool, but i swear next time others will join us becuase

A) there will be a next time, it was awesome fun
and B) others will understand by my ringing endorsement that it was awesome fun.

so, yeah, i did two songs. first was fiona apple criminal, which i did ok, and then i did the mavericks there goes my heart which i totally botched.

there was a really good crowd - everyone was encouraging and nice and was having a good time. notable moments - the anniversary couple, the guy singing "baby i'm amazed by you" to his wife, who i congratulated in the bathroom, and yes, there was a heavy country influence in oliver's, and the dude doing let the bodies hit the floor. it was a riot. also, i am now making my karaoke goal to do paradise by the dashboard light with someone, because fucking a, that was awesome.

i think the appopriate comment right now is "HAPPY NEW YEAR".

everyone, please join us next time. i can't effuse enough.

I'm sorry again I couldn't join you, but by the time I got home at 10:30 I was dead. I think I can swing karaoke if, you know, it's the only thing on the schedule that night.

How about again in a few weeks? =)

You betcha. Although I can now remember how badly I did at the last song I sang. I must choose more wisely in the future. But that is the nice thing about Oliver's... I don't think anyone gives a flying foo. Maybe it's like that everywhere.

Also, the other thing I meant to mention that I like about Oliver's... it is so the kind of place where you absolutely do not care what you are wearing. Jeans and a crappy t-shirt, hell yes.

there's a video floating aroud somewhere of my sister and I performing paradise by the dashboard light. Though we were just lip synching it. But we did dress up and act it out.

It was awesome.

Maybe next time! Weeknights are hard, though. Suck. There's a place on route one that has karaoke on Fridays....

i once won edible body paints in a paradise by the dashboard light re-enactment competition.

News on the karaoke front:

I hear that Remington's, the scary bar on rt. 1, has karaoke 7 days a week. I'll be investigating that.

The other place on Route 1 is down near Jenna and Shawns, right near 32. I also saw a place on 198 (east toward 32) that has it on weekends.

Is Remington's the one near the Greene Turtle? I saw a sign somewhere around there as well.

It's everywhere!

Remington's is south of contee, but just north of powder mill. Wow, there are so many options. And if I went to one of these new places, I wouldn't have to face anyone who saw me botch my last song the other night, heh... :)

Eh, like anyone cares! I'm sure no one remembers!
Plus, you probably didn't botch.
Sep. 19th, 2002 09:23 am (UTC)
Hehehe... it sounds like you had a really good time. Yay! :)
Sep. 19th, 2002 10:01 am (UTC)
i wish you guys had come out!! maybe next time?
Sep. 19th, 2002 11:00 am (UTC)
Yeah! We'll definitely be there next time. :)
