April Fool’s Day and Singing
Apr 1 2009

I haven’t had time to post for a few days (almost a week!) for a variety of reasons including kid’s birthday’s, anniversaries, my awesome & amazing mother visiting, life, shopping, etc.  Yes, my mom reads my blog …well I know she at least subscribes to my blog. 🙂

It will probably be close to another week before I post again because I’m attending the Landmark Advanced Course this weekend where I’m supposed to discover who I am – which I think is an elephant or maybe even a horse.  I also hope to discover what I want…or maybe I’ll discover that I already know what I want, and I just need to be brave enough to say it all out loud?  Who knows.

At any rate, today is April Fool’s day and I’m pretty sure I missed all the twitter April fools jokes since I usually only check twitter in the evenings while I’m doing some work on Babble Soft.  But at my day job, our office manager and I pulled a good one!  We told everyone that there was a full breakfast spread in the kitchen.  She even sent out an email with pictures she found from the Internet showing the food we bought (breakfast tacos, fruit, etc.) and several people fell for it!  It was a pretty darn funny, last minute joke.  People came with watering mouths only to find a sign telling them to look in the fridge and then a sign in the fridge that said “April Fool’s – you’ve been suckered!”  It had us laughing for quite some time.  Some people told us they were going to get us back so now we have to watch our backs. 😀

The only other April Fool’s joke I noticed was on the AustinStartup blog where they said they were acquired by TechCrunch.  I sort of believed it for maybe the first two sentences and then realized how unlikely that was.  I’m not usually easily fooled.  I think I can count on one hand the times in my life where I was totally surprised by something and one of those times was when my guy (yes guys) and gal friends hired a male stripper for my 25th birthday.  I was completely shocked.  I can’t recall if I told my mom about this…oops!

I also had a voice lesson today and it’s definitely not an April Fool’s joke that I’m looking to find some musicians to jam with from time to time.  I recently started this journey to find people with day jobs who like to express their musical tendencies.  I have met and communicated with some interesting folks so far and even ventured on to a Craig’s List search (despite my fear of running into creepy, potential crazy folks that might want to kill me) for the first time in my life.  I found a couple of listings that sounded interesting but one group already found their singer.

But what I have discovered is that I need to create a demo of me singing a few songs.  Although I have a presence in the major social networks, I have avoided My Space like the plague.  But My Space seems to be the place where people with musical inclinations put out their “look at me, I’m an awesome musician” crap.  Ugh.

So now I need to find a way to cobble together a karaoke type demo of me singing some songs.  I already know the two songs I’ll start with.  When I get a reasonable recording maybe I’ll upload them on the blog.

In the meanwhile if any of you know of some musicians looking for an amateur female vocalist to join them to sing cover songs, create some original music, pull together a CD to market on *gasp* MySpace or YouTube, and maybe play in public from time to time please keep me in mind.

Enjoy what’s left of your April Fool’s Day!
