I'm a Rock Star

Oops, sorry.  That was some dream I just woke up from...

This weekend we had a party with neighbors and friends in our completely finished basement. Talk about breaking in a room.  It was our Halfway to Cinco Day Mayo Party or if you want me to be honest, our Hooray! The Basement Is Finally Finished Party. After months of tweaking and putting the finishing touches on his Man Cave, my husband was finally done.

My husband had his friend bring over the Rock Band game for the Xbox 360 complete with drums, keyboard, guitar, and microphones (3 to be exact). 

We live in a nice neighborhood and while it is a friendly neighborhood, I told my husband that he was going to be laughed out of his own house if he thought our neighbors would partake in that kind of craziness.  Our friends, yes.  Our neighbors, probably not. 

Okay, so I was wrong.  In a big way.  You would think I would have learned that we have some pretty laid back neighbors after our Labor Day party

I learned that one of our neighbors used to be in a band and that he played the electric guitar. And I was reminded what an amazing voice one of our other neighbors has. As for some of the others,  I no longer feel quite so out of place with my lack of musical ability (of any kind). And I got to stay up until 3 am in the morning again (minus any screaming children). I did start yawning at about midnight.

A friend's four year old was rocking out on the drums and sat there pretty much the whole night content to play til her heart's content. Lots of our neighbors tried their skill at singing along karaoke-style.  It was hysterical to watch.  I lost track of how many people got into the spirit of it. Several played the keyboard or guitar.  Yes, even me at one point at the encouragement of my husband.  My highest score was an 89%.  Not bad for a novice and a not so musically inclined person.
 
Let's just say I think I know what I am getting my husband for Christmas now.

And now it's time for me to go back to bed.   This time change is killing me.  Rock on!
