karaoke at Pigalle

You've never really lived in a city until you visited some of its seedy parts. Back in LA, Dad would take Kuya and I to "bad" (really just poor) parts of town to get really good Mexican food or soul food. Yum. Oh man can you believe I haven't had any Mexican food for over 2 months? Anyway, Pigalle, in the 18eme, is pretty seedy (yet touristy) with its sex shops and cinemas, but what we girls came for was the karaoke.

Met up with Kristin, Lucia, Kathy, Suzie, Romina, Nayommee, Morgan, and Sarah at a karaoke bar. We all got our own drinks in addition to a meter long row of tequila shots. Had one shot myself. Learned to do that thing, that thing that D.B. Sweeney and that other girl did in the film Cutting Edge. First you lick your hand, put some salt on it, lick off the salt, take the shot, then suck a lemon slice. It was my first time doing that, and it was fun.

We didn't get to sing our songs cuz we left early. Kristin and I were going to sing "Love Fool" by the Cardigans. But we had some fun, there were some fellow English speakers who picked some English songs, "YMCA" and "It's Raining Men", so we sang along with them. The French people who were there picked these really sad, slow French songs. It was depressing. When you're doing karaoke, you can't do that stuff! Anyway, it was good times, and I'm glad we got to continue celebrating Lucia's 21st birthday.

It never really occurred to me until now how weird it is to spend a birthday, especially a 21st birthday, abroad and away from close family and friends. I hope Lucia had a great time with us. I'm glad we all have each other to look after. I'm going to be spending my birthday abroad as well, and I can't think of a better group of people to spend it with.

Called Dad to wish him a happy birthday this weekend. It's nice talking on the phone but it's no substitute to talking in real person. It's weird how we can carry on a conversation even if we're not physically together. You would think, being so far away, there'd be some sort of gap of silence because the sounds of the words we speak have to travel so far. Technology is amazing, but some things are better the old-fashioned way.
