Had a fun weekend with Gia and my family. I made sauerbraten (it rocked) for our family Oktoberfest/birthday celebration and my world famous macaroni and cheese for the kids. My mac and cheese should be its own food group it is so good! Lots of other German style dishes from the rest of the family and a bunch of great beers. Nice get together.
I was a little buzzed on the way home. Relax...Gia drove. Now we usually listen to talk radio in the car. Opie & Anthony re-runs, Ron & Fez stuff or whatever they are playing on Air America (lefty, liberal radio). But we felt like hearing some music, and since I was the navigator and a bit buzzed I was picking whatever I felt I could sing to best.
The ride home was rainy and crazy windy, so Gia had to pay close attention to the road. But at one point while I was singing along with The Who, she looked at me and said the nicest words anyone has ever said to me.
"You know...I never noticed it before. but when you sing you sound a lot like Roger Daltrey. You know, back when he could actually sing."
Now THAT is a compliment, in my book. What a woman I have.
