Lady Strange

Well my Friday night Karaoke was a bust. We get there, and there is no karaoke, I was damn near homicidal.

Saturday I went out with a group of friends for a bachlorette party. We went along to nearly every establishments in the city that sells beer ,wine and spirits. By the time we got to the second place, I forgot what town I lived in and my fathers name.

But at our normal spot, they had Honky Tonk Heros. Yes yes, I do not do honky tonk, under normal circumstances..meaning when I am not under the influence of any mind altering shit.

SO it was a DJ and also karaoke. So I was reduced to doing one country tune. Now my friend and I did a duet..We sang 9-5 by Dolly Parton...i know i know..

My solo country debut, I sang the only country song I know.

And I can not even muster up the nerve to type it.

nope..I tried again, and my finger wont allow me to type any of the letter in the song title.

Shit..I am sorry.


I am at my wits end with the Berber carpet shit. I rented a carpet cleaner over the weekend. The thing with this type of carpeting is that you will get the stain out, but within 20.5 seconds it re-surfaces....

I got my whole floor clean....and if my dog pisses on it. I.Will.Kill.Her.


But, I must admit, right after Mr Shaky rolled it out of here and back to the store, I spilled a whole can of Dt Cherry Coke all over said carpeting.

But I don't mind the smell of cherries.

Ok, see if this works..

I found it on youtube...Since I can not type it, nor say it...

good day..I am going to hide under a rock and pray no one I know saw me signing this..or else no one sober did.

Sorry you weren't able to sing your heart out. You are becoming a serious party girl! There is always next weekend...

Flip Flop Goddess said...

well...I like to get my groove on;)

nora said...

As I was reading I kept thinking "what could be so bad?. Surely she did not sing Achy Breaky Heart".

Although I have to admit that I watched Hannah Montana yesterday, I really do need to get cable.

Flip Flop Goddess said...


u caught me.

My kids watch that show, and I find myself crushing on him...sick I know.

Halfmexican Mama said...

im sure u sang beautifully...omg i so utubed that to show erin who hanna montanas dad was a few months ago...sheesh, it could be worse, now i have been known to belt out some martinamcbride from time to time!

Dr Pepper smells good too!

"Working 9 to 5 what a way to make a living..."
I'm sure you had fun, even if it WAS honky tonk night.
After a few drinks, WHO KNEW WHAT night it was???

We used to have Berber carpet, and ours got SO dirty it just looked like a different color carpet all together.
When we moved some furniture we were shocked to see what the original color really was.

Scarlet said...

Friday Night Karoake...that's right up my alley. Billy Ray? Not so much, but you had a good time and that's what counts.

Next time you should try Shania...Honey I'm Home or "Man, I Feel Like A Woman." If you decide to go country again, you'll have fun w/ those.

Flip Flop Goddess said...

I dont even know a M.Mcbride song.


yes I moved my couch out, and I was like WHOA, I dont remeber it being this color...scarey how damn sloppy we are in this house.

well, I am not a Shania lover...nor a country music lover, but hey, u never no;)

I might sing I think we're alone now Saturday night and dedicate it to u;)

1 plus twins said...

ha ha i am sorry i have such a hard time picturing you singing 9 to 5!! omg i wish i could have seen it!

Fantastagirl said...

Billy Ray? You didn't? No Way....

and 9 to 5?

You may have to move...

LMAO... and I like country - (just not those songs...sorry!)

Britmum said...

Still making me smirk.

Hugs xx

Flip Flop Goddess said...

1 plus twins,
it wasnt pretty, be thankful u didnt see it.

yes..Billy was the ONLY country song I knew..


and mark my words, it will NEVER happen again:)

bless your cotton socks!

Katie said...

You ventured out from your norm, gold star for that!

Yippeeskip said...

It may be good for the soul to do something different but Achy Breaky Heart gives you some bad karma to deal with.

aatank said...

That's to too damn funny. The crappy DJ at the wedding this weekend...played that song...It's so 80's country music. I don't listen to country music like I used to but come on there is some better songs than that out there.

Flip Flop Goddess said...

yes I did..and I did not like it!

bad kharma for sure..

sad thing is, I only sang it because its the only country I knew..

*hangs head in disgust*

patti_cake said...

LOL you are out n ' about these days aren't you! Have fun chick!

Slick said...


Were you the one in a cowboy hat, a big belt buckle, and some pink flip flops?

I think I saw you....

Flip Flop Goddess said...

Patti cake,
I need to start staying home;)

shit...u got me..

Dawn said...

I had berber carpet. I nice shade of white. With 2 little kids. And a dog. Yuck.

The worst? Brennen was about 4 and was painting. The pictures were drying on the enclosed front porch, on the floor. The dog walked on the bright paint and proceeded to walk into the house. Doggy paint prints ALL OVER the carpet.

Bradley Egel said...


Did you sing achy breaky heart as your solo...if so...Def Leppard, wherever they are will have disowned you and your tattoo :)

Working 9-5...HA!

The Berber carpet thing...we have that too...and get use to the stains...cause they just won't leave :)

The Egel Nest

Flip Flop Goddess said...

PLEASE tell me your joking..I cant deal with that..holyshit no.

I did sing it as a solo..and the boys will NEVER hear about it, so keep your trap shut!


Miss 1999 said...

I teared up at the mention of karaoke. I used to go every monday night for two faithful years, until my bar closed *trying to compose myself*

At least saturday night sounded like a good time! *hugs*

Wendy said...

Bwahahahahhhaaa! Wish I could have seen it!

Flip Flop Goddess said...

miss 1999,
it was pretty sweet...i would just DIE if my bar closed;)

Neurotic1 said...

No you didn't. No you didn't. No you didn't. You have crossed over to the dark side. The bad side of the dark side at that!

If alcohol is gonna impair ya that much you might want to start looking into something else ;)

Hope you had a great time!

Flip Flop Goddess said...

Gette said...
