we used to make FUN of people at the cat's meow!!

wait, this seems like such blog-fodder, i can't believe i didn't already say it, but just in case i didn't, i sang karaoke for the first time. lauren sang Thriller (have you ever just sat down and read the words to that, as though it's a poem? perhaps you should, for the coming Halloween season), and after long deliberations, i chose "take a chance." i mean, what else could i have chosen? it's been stuck in my head for a month. and it was the right choice, because someone bought me a drink, and i even thought he was cute! but i didn't accept it because we didn't stay. anyway. that. and m has listed karaoke as a potential activity for when k's in town, and i was all like 'yep, no problem, i am a seasoned pro.'

lauren mused: have you ever noticed that michael jackson's kids are white? like white? not, like, mixed? and no one ever questions this? i mean, michael jackson's NOT WHITE.

Anyway, if you listed the categories of top 40 songs, you'd get like 56,714 in 'love' and 20,455 in 'depression' and 15,600 in 'hate' and then, Thriller:

It's close to midnight and something evil's lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight you see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes
You're paralyzed'

Cause this is thriller, thriller night
And no one's gonna save you from the beast about to strike
You know it's thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for life inside a killer, thriller tonight

You hear a door slam and realize there's nowhere left to run
You feel the cold hand and wonder if you'll ever see the sun
You close your eyes and hope that this is just imagination
But all the while you hear the creature creepin' up behind
You're out of time'

Cause this is thriller, thriller night
There ain't no second chance against the thing with forty eyes
You know it's thriller, thriller night
You're fighting to survive inside a killer, thriller tonight
Night creatures call
The dead start to walk in their masquerade
There's no escapin' the jaws of the alien this time (they're open wide)
This is the end of your life
They're out to get you, there's demons closing in on every side
They will possess you unless you change the number on your dial
Now is the time for you and I to cuddle close together
All thru the night I'll save you from the terrors on the screen
I'll make you see

That it's a thriller, thriller night'
Cause I can thrill you more than any ghost who would dare to try
Girl, this is thriller, thriller night
So let me hold you tight and share a killer, diller, chiller
Thriller here tonight

Rap:(by Vincent Price
Darkness falls across the land
The midnight hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y'all's neighborhood
And whosoever shall be found
Without the soul for getting down
Must stand and face the hounds of hell
And rot inside a corpse's shell
The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand years
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom
And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist
The evil of the thriller
