Most Embarrassing Moment #13 - The Final Threshold

I know this whole embarrassing moment saga has been kind of drawn out, but that's only because it has all been hinging on my AV geek metamorphosis. It's time to rap this baby up. I'm not really sure exactly why I decided to share all my most embarrassing moments in the first place, but it's been kind of liberating. We've been recording home movies since 2003, but it's been of no real use to us stored on those tiny little DV tapes. But now we've figured out how to load them onto our computer, which is really exciting!

I'd like to first set the stage by confessing something that very few people probably really know. I totally fantasize about being the lead singer in a band. I want to be like Jenny Lewis or Joni Mitchell and just belt out beautiful lyrics that move the people! But I have a crappy voice. It's pretty bad. Except when I sing "William, it was really nothing" by the Smiths. I think I sound pretty good when I sing that. What does that mean? It probably means I have a man voice. At any rate, check out exhibit A (video below) to see just how unlikely it is that I will be the next Jenny Lewis.

Anyway, this embarrassing moment happened on Memorial Day 2003. We both had the day off and slept in (I can't even remember what that feels like), and I headed downstairs to play with our new Mac. I had just downloaded one of my closet favorites, "Summer Breeze" by Seals and Croft, and ... well, you'll see...

The whole reason Bobby pulled out the video camera was because he wanted to record me doing this dorky politician commercial I had done for him earlier. He just got lucky and caught this moment. Yeah, lucky... ;)

I LOVE IT! I am so glad someone else likes Summer Breeze as much as I do! Katherine, if you ever make it in that rock band, can I sing back-up?

Anne said...

That is such a classic Katherine moment!
I have to get you to do that for me sometime. Good camera work Bobby!

Danny and Betsy said...

Man...I needed to see that again. Bobby, thanks man!

If that would have been me Katherine, I probably would have OD'ed on Ice Cream and beer.

Thats hilarious! Im kind of glad that we dont have a video camera to capture those embarassing moments! I feel like I know you already!

Danette said...

What I love most is that you are so willing to share! I caught myself watching it several times and found it more funny each time. The very end was my favorite, your are a crack up!

Julia said...

This is the Katherine I know and love!

I especially love the snaps and knocking on the table. You've got rhythm girl. :)

I miss those apartments! I was so lucky to have you and Jane as neighbors.

So funny Katherine!

I've been doing that snapping move and I plan to use it in the future. That was very bold to share that video. Don't worry you aren't alone doing stupid things when you think your alone. Exhibit A: My bruised knuckles. I was doing a ballerina twirl in my kitchen and backhanded the refrigerator. I'm so smooth.

rebecca said...

That's still funny the second time around!! I saw this somewhere in Kirksville too???? You are hilarious!!!

Johanna said...

Classic! That is awesome.

Jillyboo said...

I must admit, I have now watched this 4 times and made my Husband come enjoy it as well. You are so fun for putting it up for us all, I love it!
You are one in a million Katherine!

I watched this twice and then called Juston in to watch it. That is seriously funny Katherine! And I love Bobby's commentary. When he said, "I caught you just in time" and then started singing summer breeze I about peed my pants laughing. That is some funny crap!

Ashlie & Jonathan said...

You have got rhythm and soul!! I LOVE the knuckles and snapping! Bobby's laugh is wicked when he "catches you'...you are such a trooper! And then to turn around and pull another funny! You are awesome for sharing this and soooooo FUN!
