Stupid Debt to the Universe, Anyway

Okay, so...thanks to my friend, the lovely and somewhat conniving Candice Kennington,( who apparently needs a distraction, and something she referred to as Universe brownie points) I'm posting this today instead of tomorrow. I can't focus on my revisions with this debt hanging over my head. This is take 52 in Project: Get The Universe Off My Back because I kept forgetting my name and at one point my nose disappeared from my face completely. I think it went for a taco. Also, apparently I have a chronically arched evil eyebrow when I'm singing that I was heretofore unaware of. I think that means I'm meant to write dark stuff, but that's just my opinion. So, yeah... please be kind and forgive my nerves.


There you go. The Universe is officially paid off and I don't even have to listen to Simon or Randy tell me that I sound "Karaoke" or "Pitchy".

Yay?

  6. You ROCK!!! And you are a rockstar! I'm so proud of you and I must say, wow, you can really sing and you can sing well acapella which is even more impressive. Consider me entertained, distracted, and proud!

    I would also like to say, Universe, I gave you Jenn J (I think that has a catchy popstar ring) a day early. You owe me.

  7. That's it, you're the lead singer in our fake band!!!! :) Loved it. I even got a little teary half way through (because one, I was so proud of your talent, and two because I've been lucky enough to read the book and it made me think of Parker too). So awesome. The Universe will be very happy.

  13. Wow, now that is brave! (Do something scary every day?) If I did this the universe might cry and slap me. But your voice is GORGEOUS.

  14. Awwww, that was so pretty. I get the fun and privilege of listening to you sing often, so I'm not at all surprised ... but to sing in this forum? Well, I got hives just waiting for you to start! Beautiful voice ... beautiful daughter. ;)

  15. Thanks everyone! You are all so nice, it makes it a little easier. :)

    Candi - Seriously?! I sing and embarrass myself and YOU get Universe points?? Something went horribly wrong here...

    Kasie - I SO Want to be in a fake band with you guys... So, what instrument do you play?

    Robin - yeah, I'd probably do a soundtrack list if given the chance. :)

    Renee - Yay! I got a golden ticket!

    Jenny - I used to have that motto, but it applied more to overcoming heights issues than embarrassing myself.

    Mom - Aww, you're visiting me! That's fun! :) Welcome!

  16. Okay wow. I thought, (as you do with all American Idol first auditions) that ohmigersky, I hope she doesn't suck.

    And you didn't! Holy guac! That was awesome! My daughter (a 9 year old critic) even agreed that you should audition for AI. :)

  17. Michelle - two words: THANK YOU! :)

    Anna - Thank you and your daughter. :) You're both so sweet. And your thought: "ohmigersky, I hope she doesn't suck" was the exact way I felt while recording it. ;)

  18. I was totally prepared to laugh at you, but I couldn't! That was beautiful! AND BRAVE! :D

  19. In that old, transcendant tradition: OLE, OLE, OLE!

    I won't even joke with you because you ought to know that your voice transports one right out of their skin.

  20. Monica - Haha... you were prepared to laugh at me. How honest of you to admit. ;-)

    Laura - Thanks lady! You helped me be brave enough to do it. :)
