A couple weeks ago I took the two CFI summer interns, Stef and Tony, to the classic Buffalo bar Klub Karaoke. (Wow, that site is dated.) We had an hour to kill before Stef had to go to the bus station; a karaoke dive bar seemed like a “FUN!!” way to pass the time.
The website mentions that there’s a “69 foot” (*snicker*) chalkboard bar—with free chalk!—which is a little strange but can indeed be FUN!!1!OMGZ. The music was too loud for casual chatting, so at some point I grabbed a piece of chalk and whipped up these two quick-and-terrible portraits of the interns:
I got the mad cheesy chalk-drawing skillz, yo. Did I mention it was too dark to see well? For comparison, here’s a picture of them (and MN campus leader Sarah) I lifted from Facebook:
In case you’re curious, I did end up singing a couple songs—even though we didn’t have much time and I was fighting a phlegmy cough. I figured I couldn’t be worse than what was already going on. Really. Ow. The interns (who didn’t sing) helped select the two numbers: K-Ci and Jojo’s “All My Life” and the Guess Who’s “No Sugar Tonight/New Mother Nature.” (I almost did Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now,” but I can barely hit those notes when I don’t have a sore throat.) Good times! And I made it through without coughing up a wad of mucus, w00t.
A+++++; would do again. 🙂

I am not a “spammer!” Spammers are trying to sell you something, Debbie. Jesus’ Love & Forgiveness is absolutely free. In fact, it will cost you dearly if you don’t accept him into your heart. You seem like a nice person, but there is only one path into Heaven, and you are going the wrong way. You can still believe in science, you know! It’s not a zero-sum game. A great biologist (the name escapes me) once called religion and science non-overlapping majesties. Think about it.
That biologist was Stephen Jay Gould, but there are many other great scientists who’d say he was wrong. I’d have to agree–I think Gould was wrong on that. 🙂
Those chalk drawings are wonderful, Deb”God”! They remind me of what Picasso said: “It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.” It’s almost a shame that you’re going to burn in hell for eternity because you so flagrantly reject your Lord & Savior Jesus Christ. It’s not too late to change your sinful way, you know. God Bless!
Wow, a religious spammer! …I think. Can’t tell. Is this a poe? Are you a for-real religious person, Jan Murray? I thought you died a few years ago?
They look more like those people than anything that guy Picasso ever drew looked like who he was drawing!
I love “Don’t Stop Me Now”! Glad you guys had fun 🙂
