Knight Life

Well, I did it. I lived through it. I was so nervous when I got out there that I couldn't keep my knee caps from jumping around but people laughed at all the appropriate moments (which was pretty much the whole show) and it seemed to go fine. I didn't need to leave the stage to throw up even once. I did mess up lyrics on several songs so that sucked. I have the worst on tape. No I will not share it with you. For anyone that is curious, here is the set list:

Come On A My House
Lazy River
God Bless The Child
Black Coffee
Love Me Or Leave Me
Makin' Whoopie
No Moon At All
Peel Me A Grape
My Heart Belongs To Daddy
The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea
Cry Me A River
Lullaby Of Birdland
Night Life

Here is a picture of me on stage with wine and Dean Martin.

I look like a demon. Per usual.

This was taken right after the show. These are two of my best girlfriends.

I was so lucky to have so many friends show up. I really appreciate them coming to support me. It really meant a lot to me to see each of them there and it isn't something I will forget.

I owe my soul to Jason. He directed and kept me sane. He made it funny. How do I repay that? I assume with booze.

Here are some highlights of what happened. My dress was seriously short so I had a lot of ad libbing about trying not to show too much, if you know what I mean. I had a line "My other loves are Dean Martin, and my Lesbian lover Casey, I mean Julie London." Everyone thought this was an accident including Casey. I didn't even write that line! When I did "My Heart Belongs to Daddy" My dad was in the front row and he wouldn't look at me. Unfortunately the whole audience was watching him not watch me. Awkward! Then some other crap happened but I'm getting bored talking about it. Time to move on.

Thanks for all the support and well wishes peeps!

Reb said...

Wonderful set list, fabulous photos! It must have been a stellar evening, how could it not have been!

Next time will be much easier, but just as nerve wracking. Go conquer the world girl!

Farmer*swife said...

Gal! Demon, crap with that! You looked stunning! Hit it on the nail Gal, of beauty on stage!!

Cheese and some Wiz with that -- so wish I (I mean we, all....) could hear you sing.

So wish Casey or someone would have filmed it and you could have edited anything you felt completely "un-airable" -- Guess in today's times i should say, "Un-You-Tube-able."

Anyhow, sounds like you rocked the place in true knight stunning fashion!

Oh, and the ad-libbing! That is always the best part of any show. Maybe I'm the only one of a few who can tell? But, in an audience? I can usually tell.

And, the ad-libs are always the best of the show on top of the show, ya' know?!

Happy Friday and have a Fantabulously Happy Weekend!!!!

night knight ;-)

Love it! Love me those songs, too. I'm totally curious how you did "Makin' Whoopie" cause that is one of my cabaret selections, too!

You look beautiful - and I KNOW you were fantastic. I'm so glad you lived through it...when's the next one?

Micky-T said...

Congrats. Sounds like you, are your own worst critic.
You look great and no doubt you were a lot better than your telling us.


Jo said...

You're so modest. If I could rock all those songs in front of an audience looking as gorgeous as you do after wine, hot lights, and vomiting twice in some stranger's purse, I'm pretty sure I'd make out with myself.

I'm so proud of're just a superstar in every way. It's really great your papa got to see the show.

Sounds like a lot of fun and I'm sad I couldn't be there especially if there was Julie London being sung. I bet you were spectacular.


Dianne said...

I knew it!

Anonymous said...

awwwwwwwwwwwwwww My sis is soooooooo HOT! I knew you could do it! I am glad that you had a lot of friend support!

Luv ya sissy!!!

I wouldn't worry about the messed-up lyrics- people are usually too drunk to notice. And somebody could die on stage and half the time they'll just think it's part of the show.
And your photos look great, ya stunner!

There's no such thing as a dress that's too short! ;)

You look amazing in the photos and I'm sure the show rocked the house!

Fortune Cookies said...

I'm glad you survived. I'm sure you took away your "lessons learned" and will do better next time :)

Lovely photos.

Freakazojd said...
