Billy Idol And My Pajamas

Wax Version

“Erika, I PROMISE I’ll sing with you. It’ll be fun! Plus, it’s been a long time since you really got down on stage. Speaking at conferences isn’t the same as stripping.

We get to be in the spotlight, and really, Erika, NOBODY cares. I have a terrible voice too. And if you’re that bad, You’re actually doing them a favor, cuz you’ll make everyone else look better.”

So off Adeline and I went to Mickie Finnz, a karaoke bar in Redondo Beach.

IN MY PAJAMAS!

NO MAKEUP!

NERD GLASSES!

HAIR IN TIGHT LIBRARIAN BUN!

See the evidence below. Of course, Adeline’s hair looks amazing. Always.

Bull Pen

Now I should tell you, I’m not usually this pliable. Nor do I run around looking like a reject from librarian school.

I prefer to be the wax version, glamour doll. See above photo!

But Adeline is the living definition of bon vivant.

And … she had just treated me to a 90-minute Chinese massage, popcorn shrimp, baked potatoes (xtra butter and sour-cream) and a bottle of cheap red wine, before she popped the question.

I said I would be open to new possibilities on my LA trip, so, I had to say YES!

First Melissa Cassera asked me to act in her TV Pilot. Could getting up on stage at a karaoke bar and singing IN PUBLIC be the next step in my evolution? I mean, what if part of the Universe’s plan for me is to be a rock star?

So, even though I was scared out of my wits – I took the challenge. Load up Rebel Yell, and let’s go.

I wish I could say it was a triumph, but I don’t think rock stardom is in the Universe’s master plan for me. I was only half way through the song when the host and MC of the bar started singing along with me to help me out.

And really, I don’t know how Billy Idol does it, because coordinating the lip curl and the fist pump with the lyrics is HARD.

Okay, Universe, what’s next?
