Karaoke Queens!

Damage Report:
hangover - check!
sore throat - check!
busted knee - check!

Now that I'm sufficiently recovered from Friday night...

It started at the Eldo hotel's happy hour. Cheap drinks and free food! It was a seafoody day, and I really enjoyed the food. They even had a thing I'm totally stealing which is a shot glass with a raw oyster in the bottom topped up with Guinness. The flavours go really well.

I'm careful about going on about seafood these days though. I was proclaiming my love of fish at work one day and the fellas all found it hilarious. Bah!

Sporties was all fired up and ready to go. Didn't even get a nibble on the raffles this week =(. After that it was Karaoke - and I was all over 'Faith' - god I love that song. Sue and Biker Chick and the horde (six kids - SIX!) were there.

Sue sang the song he was named for, and with style. Biker chick also got up and sang - "I wish I was a Punk-Rocker" - I love that song too. I don't care - I know it's not cool. I have no rock OR punk cred now. =(

I hope you appreciate the picture - getting to the front of the room to take this (with my phone) is how the knee got busted. It seems sliding on your knees across a slippery floor isn't as suave as my drunken self though =(. Or maybe it was suave - but just not a good idea. My knee is still hurties =(.

Wow, this sounded like a lot of fun. When I went on vacation, I did a shot of vodka, with an oyster in it, topped off with cocktail sauce and a dash of lemon.

It. was. delicious!

You have great taste, and I love Guiness---especially black and tans!

I hope you're feeling better though!

Sounds like a fun shot! And oysters are meant to be great hangover cures, so you're getting them in early.

I'm much better deb - hope you're feeling better too =)

Glad to hear the knee is on the mend! I wish I was downing oyster shots and singing karaoke!

Taz said...

OYSTERS in your shot?

I love oysters. i love raw oysters.

I can't imagine them in a shot glass.

it's not a lesbian requirement is it?

I may have to turn in my card....

Taz said...

Don't knock it until you try it WW =). You'll love it I'm sure.

And where do we sign up for one of those cards?
