My vlog on "Modern Rites of Passage For My Soon-To-Be 13-Year-Old Son" is the "featured" video of the week and here it is for your viewing pleasure:
For the record, my son mows all four acres of our yard and is getting to be a real maestro at the controls of our zero-radius turn Kubota ride-on lawn mower. Kudos, son.
Now, for the drunken karaoke.
The drunken (or mostly sober, in my case, on the second night, anyway...) karaoke happened to be two of my favorite moments of BlogHer '12. AND HOW COULD IT NOT, I ASK YOU. It's only a wee snippet, but it is of the best karaoke tune for closing out a bar EVER, in my not-so-humble-opinion — Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody. I'm not in it, but you can hear me wailing off-screen, slightly out of tune, but with gusto. Maybe someday when I'm looking for an excuse to hate myself, I'll call the Muskrat and see if he'll show me the video he took of me singing this (you see us filming each other at the end).
