I'm with you! I may be the only person you know who got kicked out of a church choir because I couldn't sing. Son, at 6 months, would put his hand over my mouth whenever I started to sing him a lullaby.

I cannot imagine any torture worse than being forced to get up and sing in public. Except having to listen to me!


I'll never forget one time I was at a bar and quite tipsy when some girl started to sing Stairway to Heaven. I stood up and yelled "YOU SUCK!" My friends pulled me back down lol.

And here I've spent a month getting ready to debut my new tune: If I Could Turn Back Time.

Not kidding.


Alcohol is the key element in the situation. I've been dragged to karaoke bars for work and school related functions, always giving the stage a wide birth. Amongst the circles I run with, karaoke is short for 'let's drink like we're on a mission.' It's an amusing torture for everyone...and the ones that take it all very seriously, well, they give me the creeps.


Merry Christmas, Lisa!


Lisa, congrats on the new job!

I'm not one for karaoke, either, and I have singing experience. I'm not fond of singing on command either, as in "Hey, Vix, sing this for me!"


you all have not experienced true karaoke until you are with a mixed bunch engineers and marketing types from many countries in some little place in Tokyo or Seoul after a very long day and recent consumption of mass quantities of alcohol

I’d rather listen to mike mathers – and I detest rap

What I'm Reading

  • Edward Ugel: Money For Nothing
    Subtitled, One Man's Journey Through The Dark Side Of Lottery Millions. (****)
  • Susan Braudy: This Crazy Thing Called Love
    The true story behind the Billy Woodward shooting, the case on which Dominick Dunne based his novel, The Two Mrs. Grenvilles. (*****)
  • Matt Birbeck: A Beautiful Child
    True story about the mysterious life and death of a young woman who's real identity still remains unclear. Excellent read. (****)
  • Richard Yates: Revolutionary Road
    A novel about the alienation arising from living in the "perfect" suburbs. Hailed as a great literary book. I thought it was okay, at best. (**)
  • Annie Proulx: Close Range, Wyoming Stories
    A collection of lyrical short stories from Annie Proulx that contains Brokeback Mountain among other gems. (****)
  • John Grisham: The Innocent Man
    I can only quote from the jacket blurb: "If you believe that in America you are innocent until proven guilty, this book will shock you. If you believe in the death penalty, this book will disturb you. If you believe the criminal justice system is fair, this book will infuriate you." A must read. (*****)
  • Nancy Caldwell Sorel: The Women Who Wrote The War
    Fascinating look at women journalists at the front during WWII. (****)
  • Jack Olsen: Charmer
    Riveting true crime by a master. (****)
  • Ann Rule: Too Late To Say Good Bye
    Excellent telling of the Bart Corbin cases. (****)
  • Michael Crichton: Airframe
    Ehhh. Better than the back of a cereal box, I guess. (**)
