Followup is a bitch, ya know?

So ... after hilarity, then what?

The deepest pits of despair?

Maybe, but really my reasons for that are so immature and lame that I'm embarrassed to speak (write?) them aloud.

I messed up an audition for something I want pretty badly. Ever since returning from vacation, I have been sick -- with the accompanying vocal issues that I know well from years of "everytime I get sick, it turns into laryngitis."

I had postponed the audition once and didn't think a second postponement would go over well.

So I sang with, for lack of a better word, vocal crap.

And it showed.

And it made me feel like crap to sound like crap.

Oh well. Better luck next time.

We now return you to our regularly scheduled hilarity.

That's a bummer:( I have laryngitis as well...it's no fun. I can't imagine singing with it.

You're a singer? I didn't know.

Jenni said...

Aw, I'm sorry, Janet! I hope you feel better soon and another equally great opportunity comes along.

Well darn, sorry to hear this :o( Here's to something bigger and better coming along!

Debbie said...

The pressure to keep it up is terrible. I didn't know you were a singer either. There is so much sickness going around. Hope you are well soon.

Oh boogers. Do they know you? Have they heard you before? If so, then maybe that'll come into play for ya.

Hope your croaker is well soon.

I'm proud of you for trying, even if you knew you weren't at your best. Congrats for giving it your all & I'm sorry that wasn't the best.

I'm sorry. If it makes you feel any better, I have the voice of a sick cat. Just posted about it tonight as matter of fact. Even my kids don't want me to sing!

All I can say is that they are not ready for YOU, not the other way around. if you were meant to have that part, you have gotten it. Next time, you'll be the star.

I'm so sorry. That happened to me before. I had a solo taken away during rehearsals for a show because I had a cold. By the time we put the show on I was fine. Looks like they might have recognized you had a cold. They should have let you bring an audition tape so they could hear the real you.

Simply Jenn said...

Oh Janet, that sucks. I am so sorry.

Joanna said...

Well may something better come along (that would so make them jealous for not picking you).

I'm so sorry to hear this. I hope you feel better soon.
