oh, the humanity.
Howevs, there was one item I could not ship via US Mail. See, I (ridiculously) promised that I would vlog a karaoke dedication to my giveaway winner.
And how hard could that be? I'd have some drinks, get a friend to hit record on a digi camera, and sing my little heart out to some Lisa Loeb or something.
Yeaaah... and then I got preggers. And there was no way I was doing that shit stone-cold-sober.
So, sadly, I'm yet to make good on the karaoke promise.
See, I couldn't bring myself to show my own face on the video. (You didn't want to see me anyway. New baby + maternity leave does not equal a shower every day. Trust.)
Here are more reasons that said sing-song is highly humiliating:
* I sang in the privacy of my own home, with no one but a 5 week old baby to judge me, and this was the best I did.
* There may or may not have been multiple takes, and this may or may not have been the best one.
* Also, the song is SUPER corny. I mean, I'm a new Mom and even I think so.
* That doesn't mean that I didn't get hella choked up while dazzling you with my pipes... yeah, we'll blame my horrid high notes on emotion.
So, I know that sappy country music isn't Tina's favorite genre... but, she has a daughter whom she loves and adores -- so I hope this tune makes her smile. Or laugh. Hysterically.
(I shall never be the next American Idol, but... I've sounded worse.)
Note to self: never again promise to vlogspice myself singing karaoke and then completely cop-out.
Song: In my Daughter's Eyes, usually sung by Martina McBride...
and in my defense, it's kind of a hard song to sing.
