At long last, I present to you the karaoke video, as promised to my formerly-pregnant-now-mother-of-TWINS friend, Amaretto. You may recall that she requested that I perform “Total Eclipse of the Heart” karaoke-style to entertain her while she was on bedrest. The opportunity hasn’t presented itself until now; specifically, this past Saturday night at my friend’s birthday party. Better late than never!
Ordinarily, I expose the world to my karaoke stylings only under the influence of tequila and/or vodka. Copious amounts. My present expectant condition, however, prevents me from doing so. It does NOT, however, prevent me from getting hopped up on Shirley Temples, and letting the fact that we had a private karaoke room embolden me. In general, I’d only fling my arms and do a Jessica Simpson-style finger-to-the-ear move if I was very, very drunk. However, I was surrounded by people I knew, and well…I’m sure you can imagine how it went:

Please note that I actually spent a large amount of time TURNING AROUND. (Just like the song says!) That, however, has less to do with my slavish devotion to literally interpreting the lyrics, and more to do with the fact that the monitor was BEHIND me. Why, karaoke bar, why?
