Three cheers for last minute gifts

I had an unusually difficult time picking out a birthday present for Meg this year.

It is because I had already bought her part of a present (a Spanish national team soccer jersey) and I needed something else.

Knowing how much she loves to play SingStar with her roommates - and on account of the fact that she just got a Play Station so that she can play Guitar Hero - I picked her up SingStar Amped (the rock version).

SingStar, for those of you who might not know, is basically video game karaoke. You have microphones. You get "judged" on your pitch. And you're singing along to popular songs.

So that's what I get her.

She hooks it up shortly after opening her birthday presents, and all hell breaks loose. My dad's family is, like, clamoring for the microphones. Every single one of them thinks that they're a damn rock star.

I had to go out to Target to buy SingStar 90s.

I don't think I've ever laughed so hard. My mom and my aunt singing David Bowie's Changes? Seriously?

The only way it would've been better is if there was a SingStar Broadway verson.
