Go Pop Yourself

I like to sing. A lot. One would think that with all of the singing I do, I might, you know, get better at it. But no. I suck at singing. Fuck it. I'll continue singing my ass off no matter how ear-bleedingly horrible my voice is because it makes me happy. And if something makes me happy, I do it over and over and over again. Zube Boy likes to sing and dance, too. I think he's with me on the benefits of singing. You should try it. Really.

Anyway, sometimes I sing commercial jingles or plain old songs. But, most often, I make up my own shit 'cause I'm a creative bitch.

It only takes the littlest thing to throw me into a singing frenzy. For example, yesterday, I was at work and was suddenly overcome with the urge to eat popcorn. I sauntered over to the microwave, tossed in a bag, and hit the 'Popcorn' button. Modern technology rocks like that. I don't even have to know how long to put the shit in there. Anyway, the word 'Pop' appeared:


...and I simply couldn't resist. I burst into song...

"Pop, pop, pop, pop, POP that shit...

Pop it like a cherry you microwave playah...

I'm gonna eat it after you POP it...

'Cause sloppy seconds don't bother me one bit...

Pop, pop, pop, pop, POP goes the popcorn...
"

This song was kind of cute because it was sort of a rap and lent itself very well to doing a little dance, too. And that's the fucking BOMB when I get to sing AND dance. The dance had an uncanny resemblence to 'Doin' the Butt' however I threw in a little more arm movements for good measure.

It was fun. I am SO glad, though, that no one walked in and ruined the moment.

How do you know no one walked in? Maybe someone saw you doing it, silently laughed to themselves, but decided not to interrupt you because they wanted to film you with their digital-video-camera phone and post it on their blog. Or on the company network. Or feed it to all the guest rooms. You never know.

Kind of like that proverbial tree in the forest thing... If no one SAW you do it, then did you really do it? :)

I think we need to figure out how to post video.

Look out American Idol! (Your song is actually better than most rap lyrics out there!)

I annoy my family all day long with my singing. I used to be really bad, now i'm just plain bad. I pop Karaoke Revolution into my son's PS2 and the game improves your voice. Give it a try.

I go around singing little ditties all day long. I can actually sing pretty well, but it is more fun to sing badly or use a funny voice. I also have my own dance that my ex coined the Happy Dance and one I call the Booty Dance.

Phil- I think my professional reputation would be ruined. Church groups would CERTAINLY believe that I was possessed.

Bonanza- Oh, I SO need to figure out how to post video. Though, I would only embarrass the hubby and not myself.

Junebee- Imagine. I was saying the other day that I should try out because the show needs shitty people to make it funny, right?

Minerva- *What, huh? Nothing to see here* Hee.

Barbara- I'm totally going to have to look into getting one of those.

Crazy Like a Fox- I aspire to get better. Someday! Singing and dancing is the spice of life.

Amy said...

LOL - That is toooooo funny. You are one of those crazy people but in a really good way, huh?

So, really, admit it, when White Christmas is on TV you and Zube Boy do a very Zube version of "Sisters" don't you?
