Muddy Runner Dirty Dozen: No. 10

Number 10 in the Muddy Runner Dirty Dozen is my Karaoke adventure.

For my 34th birthday... sigh, I'm 34 going on old... anyway, for my 34th birthday I wanted to have a karaoke celebration. I wanted to invite some friends and family and assign a song to each of them. Yeah, that idea lasted about two seconds when I realized that nobody would show up.

But I still had that karaoke bug. So, to expel that, I decided that I still wanted to sing karaoke (which, by the way, is way out of character for me). And I figured that I would let my blog readers suggest songs and then vote for which song they wanted me to sing. I would then record that song and post it here on the blog.

There were some good entries (Sweet Child O' Mine by Guns N Roses, You Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC) and some really, really gawdawful ones (Bootylicious by Destiny's Child, Whitney Houston's I Wanna Dance With Somebody).

I lucked out and sang this one.

Greetings from Mexico City! I haven't been able to do much except A) work and B) suffer. The altitude hit me hard and contributed to an upset stomach on Tuesday morning. On Monday night I went out with a group of friends and had about three beers and ate a lot of beef and chicken and tortillas, and Tuesday I suffered. I think it was a combination of everything - the altitude, being tired, this crappy rock-hard bed, lack of eating/hydrating - and I didn't start to come out of it until Tuesday night.

I'm fine this morning, though. Looking forward to the big game!

Anyway, before I head out, I wanted to post this video. As promised, by Wednesday, Metallica's Enter Sandman, LB style (which is to say terrible). This video from my camera is dark and not the best. My brother shot video from his video camera so hopefully that one turns out better.

In the meantime, here goes:

LOL! Sooooo brave. I'd rather run 26.2 miles before I do that. ;)

Merry Christmas to you and your family!
