Yes, there has been more karaoke. I'm indebted to Dani, the flutist in the band, who responded to the news that I'd only done karaoke once in Japan with an invitation to go last night. So we went! Josh couldn't make it because of his schoolwork, but karaoke isn't really his thing anyway.
I was NOT informed, sadly, until much too late that the vocalist from the band would be joining us. Yes. Spencer, the professional singer from the Navy Band came along to SING KARAOKE with me. Folks, it was a bloodbath.Okay, I may have been exaggerating the tensions for effect. We had such a great time! Ninety minutes flew by, as we passed the mics back and forth for pop songs and a little Disney. Can you tell, though, that Dani hears Spencer sing every day at work?Hee hee! We all got a kind of amnesia about which songs to sing, but she was smart enough to check her iPod.I hope I can remember in the next few weeks to soak up as many nights like this as I can - as much Japanese karaoke, sushi, ramen, shopping, and of course dates with all the friends we'll have to leave behind. If badly impersonating Prince is part of the deal, so much the better.
