Karaoke is good for the soul

One of my absolute favorite things to do is blast Youtube videos at top volume and have impromptu karaoke nights. I cannot sing. I can get every single vocal fluctuation in a song, but not the key or note or pitch…or whatever. I’ve tried to get my husband to teach me how to sing for the last 6 years or so…but he’d rather just tune me out!

I have several “go-to” songs to sing to – Leanne Rimes’s Amazing Grace, Audioslave’s Highway, older Britney Spears songs, Nsync, and well…anything that was big in the 90’s. I stopped listening to popular music around the time MTV stopped being “Music Television”.

What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re home alone?

Things that just Suck.

It seems like there’s been a flux of stories lately about people abusing/killing/harming animals in the news. I saw one website about a man whose dog was shot by a cop who was at the wrong address. Another site about a man who threw a kitten out a car window. Two brothers who set a pit bull on fire.

In my personal opinion, anyone who willfully or voluntarily harms and abuses animals shouldn’t be allowed to have children. It should also be a felony with mandatory jail time, and a prohibition against any future animal ownership or “caretaking”.

Grumble grumble. The idea of anyone hurting my furbabies breaks my heart, and they at least have an owner who watches out for them. There millions of homeless and wild animals that have no help.
