Guilty Pleasures


If you happen to pull up next to me in traffic, when you glance over, I will be singing.

    I’ll be too busy reading my book….

  2. If I pull up next to you then my ruddy care will have done some VERY strange uncommanded manouveres and managed about 100 miles a litre. (440 mpg for the Nordamerican’s on board)

    So your singing is a good thing, right? Last time someone looked over at me when I was singing thought I was abusing them! Road rage can be sooooo ugly and so too singing!

  4. George says:

    Well, I’d much rather see you sing than to look over at the usual guy who’s always picking his nose and analyzing the results. 🙂

  5. yorksnbeans says:

    I’ll be blogging. 🙂

  6. But will you be singing LOUDLY with the Windows rolled down or just under your breathe with the windows up?

  7. If you guys need a new friend to abuse, I mean amuse… You should meet my little sister:

    so that was you!

  9. What would you do if you looked over and saw me? That is an incredible photo; where in the hell did you find it?

    • If I look over and see you, I’m going to abandon my car and get in yours.

      Isn’t it incredible? I love it.
      I found it the same place I find everything. On the internet. I stole it. I did a google image search for traffic.

    You’re not alone! My daughter and I sing and dance in the car all the time! Its the only way to drive!

    This begs the question of what your perferred genre of music is that you like to sing to?

    Mine is country rock.

    • I really love all kinds of music. My kids get me to listen to emo screamo rock pop hiphop. I listen to almost anything. It just depends on the mood I’m in. I’ve been very mellow lately so I’ve been listening to a lot of calm stuff. When I’m excited I listen to fast stuff.

        Same here. When the commercials get to be too much, I listen to college radio.

        But for really good head pounding music, I listen to a local college station that has a major chunk of their playlist devoted to all kinds of metal music.

  12. “We are family!”
    So of course, I’m singing with you. I do remember one of your children looking at me weird when I visited…Cause his cool aunt knew the same songs as his mom – ewww.
    My son on the other hand tells me to stop singing and turn down the radio. Party Pooper!

  13. I sincerely hope you’re “singing” a little gangster rap. That would be too amazing.

    Me too. except I don’t have a car and walk everywhere and get the strangest looks as I sing and walk. But I also get some really nice smiles . . .

    I crank up the CD player real loud, and sing yell along at the top of my voice.

    Going to work this morning I scared some sheep with ‘Astronomy’ by the Blue Oyster Cult.

    My excellent rendition of ‘Over the Wall’ by Echo and the Bunnymen on the way home was, however not appreciated by some philistine of a cyclist.

    …there really was no need for that gesture that he made. Whatever it meant!

    Nice choice! Don’t let the stress get you down! 🙂
    Take it easy,

    As Queen of the Highway, I hope you are singing Queen of the Night. I think that would be ever so delightful.

  18. Donald Mills says:

    I know I’ve gone down this road before but if more people sang this song the world would be a damned happier place.

    Plus, it is catchy as Hell.

  19. Ivan says:

    And what do you sing Claire? That song I sent you once? 😛


  20. How is this a guilty pleasure?

  21. Bill Reed says:

    Great picture! And why be guilty about singing in your car. Its probably unlikely you’ll see anyone you know and even if you do you can always mumble vaguely about a doppelgänger. 🙂

    • I love that picture too, Bill. I don’t know who the fabulous photographer is but it’s beautiful.

      Singing makes me feel good. I’d rather do that than talk on my cell phone or look all pissed off when I drive and that’s what everyone around me seems to be doing. Singing is much more fun.
