Blogher 2010: A Higher Point

Karaoke

Yes, that would be a picture of Gretchen and me totally nailing it. At the Friday night party at the BlogHer conference, they had karaoke with a live band. I didn't know that singing to a big crowd with a live band was on my life list, but it so was. In fact I'm going to write down my life list so I can cross that off. So much fun! I knew Gretchen could sing, and I myself am a dedicated living room karaoke artiste, so I begged her to get up there with me. And she said, "Okay, but when we're up there you have to sell it. Are you going to sell it?"

I think we sold it, or I did my best. It was a little tricky because we couldn't really hear ourselves. Fortunately, Pat Benatar's "Hit Me with Your Best Shot" is not a demanding song. Everyone said we sounded good. Were they lying? I don't care because it was pure pleasure. And after we belted out the last chorus, Gretchen yelled, "Thank you New York!" So many flavors of awesome.
When I spent all of eighteen dollars on that dress at Target, I didn't know I'd be making my world stage debut in it. And another girl at the party had it on too. D'oh.

I seriously could have sung all night, until I'd driven everyone from the ball room.

And look at Gretchen! Look at her selling it!

You guys totally killed it. No one else should ever even bother trying to sing that song ever again because you and Gretchen OWN it.

If anyone could "sell it" it would be you and Gretchen. Now, I wish I had been there because that would have been the highlight of my BlogHer experience.

We were damned good. We really were. And you know, some of those other girls...were not. I'm so glad you made me do it!

Oo, oo, let's start thinking of our number for NEXT year! We could even come up with costumes! Oh yes, maybe something with Jeggings! OH wait, only YOU got the Jeggings. Sigh.
