New Ways To Be Weird

I came home from my singing lesson this evening a little more weird than usual.

Maybe it was the made dash home from work, to my house (to pick up my singing music), to my teacher’s house, (to arrive ten minutes late), to then sing at the top of my lungs (in the car), while driving back to my house.

Then again, maybe it was just because I’m slightly strange.

Whatever was going on, I decided to try to sing in an accent. I was going for a spooky version of the witch lady on Disney’s Princess and the Frog crossed with the funny speaking priest guy in Princess Bride (the fact that these movies both have the word ‘princess’ in them is entirely coincidental).

Technically speaking, you don’t want to try this at home. Your vocal chords will hate you. You’ll feel like a twenty a day smoker who’s swallowed a few too many tablespoons of Vicks Nasal Vapor cream.

But, I’ve already done it for you. If you’re not in the mood for something wacky, I’d stop reading here. But if you’re game…

(Pssss! Whatever you do, don’t tell my singing teacher about this.)

Speaking of strange…I think it runs in the family.
