I'm so Ashamed

I'm a drummer you know.


Actually I'm a better singer than drummer.  I can play lead guitar passably, but if I had my druthers I'd leave that up to someone with more skill.

I've toured Amsterdam and London.  We got kicked off stage in New York because our vocalist sucked and the rest of us couldn't save him.

Alas.

Little turns fifteen this weekend and since we're going to be at the lake, I gave him his birthday present early. The last item I bought with my discount before I quit the second job was...

Rock Band.

It was a completely frivolous and unnecessary purchase.  I'm racked with shame that I gave into his pleas.  I should be dumped into the Pit of Useless Mothers for even considering such a total waste of money and time.

Please, Ma.  You know this song don't you?  It's Dead or Alive.

Oh dear God.  He played the Bon Jovi card.

Damn.

I knew that song and flat rocked Run to the Hills to the point I earned us a tour bus and several groupies.

I have no time to blog because I'm

Rock on, Sugar! You get the Coolest Mom Until She Takes Over My New Toy Award! (It happened with our dad when we got our first Nintendo way back in the day). My dad just HAD to beat Bowser in Mario Bros. Have fun. I'm not a gamer either, but my BIL brings his Rock Band over for family functions and it IS a cool game!

It is so much fun, Moxie! I haven't been this much into a game since Pong. I spent way too much time playing Myst when it first came out, but that is a computer game and doesn't count. HA!

Well hi there, Sheila. Glad to meet you!

I don't think I have the strength for Guitar Hero. One is enough.
