This week's Awesome is small but mighty. And yes, it's not external awesomeness but something I was involved in but am kind of proud of. :)
It's my sister's 40th birthday this week, and her hubby threw her a surprise karaoke party on Saturday to celebrate. Don's in BC right now and I... well I just couldn't handle facing the GateKeeper on my own, nor did I wish upon my sister the inevitable scene if said GateKeeper saw my face there, so I stayed home with a glass (or three) of wine and thought of her (my sister, not GK) fondly.
In lieu of our presence, Don and I enlisted the help of our friend Tyler Knight to create a video to send for the party. We kind of broke the karaoke rules and made up our own lyrics, but we're sure you'll agree they were appropriate for the occasion!
Please note that when we added the birthday greeting, our software messed up the resolution and put a few glitches into the recording, so if you'd prefer to see the "clean" original video (a much better example of Tyler's magic), he's got a copy up on his YouTube site here: Sad But True Babe.
But the birthday greeting adds just that extra little bit o' cheese, so here is the lower-quality but higher(?)-comedy version that my sis got to see at the party:
Have an awesome week, everyone -- I'll hopefully be less of a crankypants next week!
