Glee’s Karaoke or Wayne’s kind of music?

Last night, I went to a friend’s house with my husband, Wayne, and our children to celebrate New Year’s Eve.
My friend and I were very excited.
We had plans.
We were going to eat.
We were going to have a few alcoholic drinks.
And we were going to play Glee’s Karaoke Revolution.
The first part of the night went according to plan.
My friend served a fabulous filling meal, complete with spinach dip, finger foods, shrimp, chocolate cheesecake, and chocolate covered fruit.
So, plan to eat: check!
The second part of the evening, not exactly according to plan, but not a complete failure.
Her husband served us these pretty pink slushy rum drinks.
The only problem, however, was that the pretty pink drinks were STRONG. Like we’re talking take a sip, and go, “Holy Mother!” then open mouth, wave hand in front of open mouth after each sip, put down drink, and say, “I don’t think I can drink this.”
Then repeat.
Clearly, the husband had plans to get his wife hammered, which, in normal circumstances, I’d be like, “You go buddy! Do what it takes to get some doggy style.”
Unfortunately, I don’t drink often.
For instance, the last time I had alcoholic beverages, was a couple of weeks ago, and that had been the first time in over seven years. 
So alcohol and me does not guarantee that my husband will get laid.
What it does guarantee though, is that I’ll sit on the couch, watch Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Years Eve, and spend several hours saying, “What’s wrong with his face? Does he have Parkinson’s? Is it a stroke?” and feel really sad, because come on! Dick Clark was a part of my childhood.
Fortunately for everybody in the room, I wasn’t drunk enough to break into the drunken cry; you know the one, where suddenly the entire weight of the world is on your drunken shoulders, and you make a vow to move to Africa, and save the gorillas…
…and no, I have no idea if the gorillas need saving, but during a drunken stupor, it’s either saving the gorillas or building schools for the disadvantaged…and I’ve never been very good with construction, so you do the math.
So, plan to drink:…sort of check…?
However, there was still Glee’s Karaoke Revolution to look forward to.
So I say to my friend, “To the basement! Let’s sing!”
She’s like, “I’ll need a few more drinks before I can do that.”
I say, “More drinks? I’m still full from supper and the slushy drink. I can’t have MORE!”
So we sit back down on the couch and feel sorry for Dick Clark till midnight.
Below is a video of my husband, Wayne, on the drive back to our house.
Keep in mind, he has not had one single drink.
Look how much fun he’s having…yes, you can take the time to check it out, the video is 40 seconds.
I promise, it’ll make you laugh…not at him. With him.
Who needs Glee’s Karaoke Revolution when you’ve got really old music?

    OMG Sandra…what a riot. He's so cute. I clicked on it first with the speakers muted, that in itself is hysterical. Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! I'd love to be at a party with you guys. So would Bruce. Happy New Year Funny Lady!

    Happy, wonderful husband and not a bad singer either. We were talking about Dick Clark last night too. I think the reason why it really hits us (beside the childhood memories stuff)is that in the Hollywood crowd older people first get a lot of plastic surgery and/or fade away into the sunset. It's like nobody gets old in tinsel town and when we see it, it's a shocker. Tell Wayne thanks so much for the singing. My hubby is fun like that too.

  10. How do I join the Wayne Fan Club??? And more importantly, did he get lucky?

    Your Hubs' got great taste in music. I was singing along, I'm sure he didn't mind.

    Btw, I can't remember the last time I stayed up to see Dick Clark or that 'Acorn' thingy drop. So, DC is still alive??

    I'm amazed he actually knows the words to that song. If k-ster ever actually sang and then I recorded it and THEN I put it on the internet. It. Would. Be. The. End. Of. Us.

    I think it's really funny that my word verifcation is booti. I thought you'd like that.

    What a funny man! How awesome is it that he's smiling and singing along knowing that you're going to put this on your blog. My husband would never do that! I love it. I also love pink slushy drinks…and you.

    I am sort of laughing at him. :)

    I don't drink alcohol, but I have discovered bananas foster. And in Utah, it's usually just rum flavoring.

    We went to a high end buffet in Vegas, and man, I am pretty sure I got drunk off their bananas foster.

    I haven't watched a Dick Clark special in about 10 years but, sadly, that was the exact conversation that went on back then, too. Kind of like a pushmepullyoo (from the children's book, Dr. Doolittle.) Don't know if you should laugh or cry.

    Does Wayne take requests? Because I like Woolly Bully, but my favorite song from that era is Purple People Eater!

    Sounds like a really fun way to start the New Year!

    We don’t have to get drunk to do doggie style. That is our favorite position because we can both watch wressing on TV at the same time. We are multi-taskers.

    We are going on a cruise and my best friend's only goal is to get drunk off her ass and sink “Like A Virgin” in the karaoke bar.

    You have now given me the idea of recording it and posting it!

    Yo! That man has fierce Wooly Booly skills! You are one lucky girl!

    I think the gorillas need saving, but more than that, it is the lions. I'll go with you after a few stiff drinks. Maybe we can save Simba.

    Happy New Year my friend. May 2011 bring you only love, joy and lots of karaoke.

    People who love to sing don't need to drink. And when they do sing, the people around them often get all happy, too. Hooray for Wayne!

    That was so so cute!!! I love it! Your husband sounds like he's a great guy and fun too! I know what you mean about drinking! I do the same thing as you do and probably drink about as much! One glass of wine and I'm all silly….2 and I'm crying!

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and commenting about your professors. I certainly hope you get a better set this next semester. My suggestion: try to see them during office hours, away from class, when they might be in a better mood. Or not. Stop by any time.I'm usually in a good mood!

    January 2, 2011 | 11:59 pm

    Holy Hell. That video of your husband was SOFA KING funny. I may have peed in my pants. A little.

    As for Dick Clark's Rockin' New Years Eve, I watch that EVERY YEAR. And yes, he had a stroke a few years back. I couldn't wait for them to “Wheel Out Dick” this year, however, listening to him talk kinda breaks my heart. But at least he's still working that tan!

    Just thought I would confirm that.


    I LOVED the setting down and repeating of the strong drinkage. You are a trooper. Awesome!

    Glad you had fun and that Wayne seems like a fun dude. Hope you are staying warm in the 'Peg!

    I had some frank Dick Clark discussion, myself on the couch, in my PJs on the party night of the year. I didn't grow up with Dick but I understand he's an institution and all so it's somewhat perplexing to hear him talking like he has a mouthful of berries. Cheerful man though. I wasn't TOO rude. Plus there were boy bands who weren't boys, to ridicule you know?

    Glad you had a good one, reminding people that alcohol gets you doggy style later. It's worth reminding, no? :) Happy new year!
