Karaoke Lunch

Last night I got an email from Rinako asking me if I wanted to go do lunch today and some karaoke. I jumped at the chance. So we met at her favorite restaurant at 11:30. One problem. It was gone. Yep, no sign, no map, just gone. So we changed our plans and went to Italian Tomato Jr. instead. Then we went to the other foreign food market that recently moved on me, and although it was only a block away I couldn't find without help. Then on to ruining her eardrums. I told her I liked karaoke, but I was lousy. That's only half true. I can't find the right key by myself. But I do okay if I can follow someone elses lead. And it is hysterical when you think you know a song and turns out you don't. The only two songs out of two hours worth of singing that I was able to pull off were "Horse with No Name" and "American Pie". And suprising that I didn't really know "Do You Want to Hurt Me" and "Bad Girls". I also pulled off a couple of country songs. The worst part is that Rinako is really good. No - seriously really good. But I had a lot of fun anyway, and it cost lest than 500 yen for 2 hours. It was a kick in the pants. Gotta do that again.

Are people supposed to have that much fun at lunch? Sounds great. Mum

I am trying to understand the whole concept of karaoke lunch without cocktails. I'll have to try it! Tracey
