>Sing, we joyous, all together….


In a continuation of our 2010 holiday events, we attended a “Holiday CD” sing-along party last night.

Our friend, Bill, is a musician (one of several in our group) and has a mini recording and remixing “studio” (aka spare bedroom) in his apartment. He invited everyone over to his place last night to record some holiday songs which he is going to edit and make into a CD for all of us. There were a good thirty people there and we sang in groups of 4.

Here is a shot of one of my groups singing “The Little Drummer Boy.” (We look so “We are The World Goes Bald” don’t we?)

L to R:
John, my hubby Jeffrey, Me and (seated) Ron (who’s also one of our teammates on the Blowouts.)

I also performed “Heat Miser/Cold Miser” with another group (that also included Jeffrey) and then me, my (co-cookie baking friend from last night) Tom, and our host, Bill, performed an X-rated version of “Little Drummer Boy” – re-dubbed “Little Hummer Boy.”

It really was a lot of fun. It will be very interesting to hear how we sound. If and when I get some sound files I’ll share with you here if it’s not too atrocious.

Last night was really just a sing-along. We’ve all decided next year we want to rehearse and harmonize and really make something awesome (Most of my friends are excellent singers, just another thing for me to be jealous of.)

It’s been a long week of late nights and I am looking forward to a quiet night at home tonight before my 3 day weekend starts, a weekend booked to the hilt with plans and gatherings. I’m fortunate to have so many friends and so many great things to do, but I need a boost of energy to keep up with it all.
