All righty...back when I was fundraising for St. Baldrick's, I promised that if I hit a certain amount, I would post a video of me singing. And then I got sick, sounded like crap, and then...I forgot.

Last night, I remembered. So...you get the raw, unwarmed-up, unrehearsed vocals of moi. Presuming the video doesn't get yanked (tried to stick in on FB, they immediately pulled it, because of the music.)

Oh yeah, the music. Since I did this on the fly, I played a song on my iPod and sang along.

And why this song?

Well...once upon a time I bought my first iPod and created a playlist with, like, 15 tracks on it. All 15 were of this song. Because WHY THE HELL NOT??? I used to drive around in the convertible and sing along, over and over and over. Also, now you know where the Queen of Pacifica got her name.

Lovely, Thump! Truly. Such a sweet lullaby. And, correct me if I am wrong, but did I hear Max contribute a single note of harmony? 😉
You need to share a St. Baldrick's song every year.

Okay. I clicked PLAY here with the *highest* of expectations.
I expected drama. I expected horror. I expected to be WINCING with the awfulness of it, damnit; and what did I get? A perfectly nice rendition of what sounded like a lullaby!
NOT GOOD ENOUGH, THUMPER!
Maybe this is because I am drunk - which I freely admit I am right now. I settle down with Mother to watch Midsommer Murders or somesuch, and have what my Grandmother would call 'a hefty nip' most Saturday evenings, so apologies for my possibly/probably appalling typing - but seriously; I was gutted! In my head, in the time it took to read that post, I had built up this moment in my head into epic proportions. There was out of control wailing. There was headbanging. There was inappropriate fashion being worn... And I press PLAY, and: nothing. And I know it sounds ridiculous - heck, *I* sound ridiculous, even when I'm *not* drunk - but it was a massive let down, I can tell you. I wanted garbage! Damnit: WHERE IS MY GARBAGE! I was promised garbage!
...anyway. I've ranted for long enough. I just needed to get that out...

I'm not angry, Thumper. Just *disappointed*...

You're actually a pretty decent singer. Beautiful song.

Beautiful, Thump! You have a lovely voice and you should be proud of it.

WOW! it is beautiful. You are a brave woman putting your voice out there! I don't minding singing with a bunch of Girl Scouts, but not for the public!

When the Video ended, a picture of Simon Cowell, eyes closed and hands together at his mouth! So I think he liked it too!
