Rachel and I hit Adonis late last night and had a great time. Jeff and Nathan were back from L.A. (California, not the Louisville Area) and it was great to see them.
We did some karaoke. I let Toniqua pick my first song, Brandy (You're a Fine Girl) by Looking Glass. Rachel gave it a high rating. So I let Toniqua pick again and he went with Levon (not Hernandez). That was okay. Started a little rough but ended strong. On a roll, I agreed to a duet with Toniqua of You Don't Bring Me Flowers. I at least got to do the Neil Diamond part. I didn't know the song very well, but didn't need to to get through it. Feeling confident (and Christmasy) I went with Same Old Lang Syne by the recently departed Dan Fogelberg. I dedicated the song to the newly wed Mary Schmergel (a Dan Fogelberg fan...not an old lover). Rachel gave it a low rating. Turns out the chorus is pretty high. Anyway, more later, the snow is turning into rain...
