One of the most fun things that I have found in the 7 months of being married is the silly late night conversations. They are the ones that stem from one funny comment that then takes on a life of its own. Last night, we had one that started from a combination of my ailing shoulder and her upcoming trip to NY city. The following is a paraphrased and slightly abridged conversation:

Me: If my shoulder still hurts next week, then I will go to the doctor.

Wife: So you're going to go on Monday?

Me: No, I said next week meaning Thursday or Friday after you've left for NY.

Wife: What if you find out that it's cancer and you've only got four days to live. I would feel guilty that I left you to go to NY for vacation. (My own form of hypochondriacism is to initially think that everything is cancer. The thought typically last for a few minutes. Then, I move on to more reasonable illnesses.)

Me: I would leave you a note saying that you shouldn't feel guilty. No one ever sees the onset of rotator cuff cancer. In fact, the doctors themselves would say that this is the first case of RCC that they have ever seen and that the progression was faster then they could ever imagine. Just dumb luck...there is noting you can do.

Wife: What heroic thing would you do with only four days left to live?

Me: I wouldn't do anything heroic. I would just take off work and play video games.

Wife: What?

Me: If I'm going to be the first ever death from rotator cuff cancer then I think that's a big enough thing on which to go out. At that point I would just want to relax and enjoy the final days. On the upside, I might be able to convince them to name the disease after me. That would be a fairly good legacy. Man, people would hate having to call it the Farquharson disease.

Wife: That's O.k. Gerhig can be a tricky name too. Besides, I'm pretty sure that you're not going to die from RCC.

Me: You're probably right. But, it would be kind of cool in a weird sort of way.

After this bizarre yet humorous conversation, we went to sleep so that we could be well rested for our trip to Austin this afternoon. The great thing about our trip is that they have stopped construction on 35 this weekend because of the traffic from the Texas-OU game. Also, we will be traveling opposite of the traffic. Were heading down to see Rilo Kiley on Sunday night at Stubbs. It should make for a pretty good show, but I am really just as excited about stopping in West for my Koloches. :)

Saturday Distraction: What's Your Karaoke Theme Song?

Your Karaoke Theme Song is "I'm Too Sexy"

You're a total goof ball and a bit of a nut job. You don't take yourself seriously at all.

And while you may not be the greatest singer, you're the first to volunteer for karaoke.

You have a wild and unpredictable sense of humor that always gets people cracking up.
Irreverent and rebellious, your humor knows no bounds or limits. You enjoy shocking people.

You might also sing: "Like a Virgin," "Ice Ice Baby," and "Hey Ya!"

Stay away from people who sing: "Sweet Home Alabama"
Funny thing is that I have actually sung this song at a Karaoke bar. But, I do love Sweet Home Alabama.


What song would you sing? Take the quiz and let us know by leaving a comment for us. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Go Texas!

Your Karaoke Theme Song is "YMCA"
You're the type of person who can't have fun unless everyone else is right there with you having a blast.
You have an amazing knack for figuring out what people want, and you don't mind going the extra mile to make them happy.

The spotlight is something you enjoy on occasion, but you prefer that not all the attention is on you.
If you've gotten people to sing or dance along with you, then you're song is a success.

You might also sing: "Macarena," "Hot, Hot, Hot" or "Stayin' Alive"

Stay away from people who sing: "The Greatest Love of All"

Your Karaoke Theme Song is "Since U Been Gone"
You are a very expressive and genuine person.
You're not so emotional that you wear your heart on your sleeve - but you're not afraid to show how you're truly feeling.

Whether you're singing along in the car or singing on stage, your favorite songs make you get a little carried away.
You're definitely the type most likely to dream of becoming a rock star!

You might also sing: "Livin' La Vida Loca," "I Will Survive," or "Hollaback Girl"

Stay away from people who sing: "I'll Make Love to You"

***Your Karaoke Theme Song is "Margaritaville"***


You are a true party animal, but your style is mild and chill.
Kicking back with a few friends and a few drinks is all you need to be happy.

You certainly don't feel pressured to be a part of any party scene. In fact, you avoid trendier spots.
You've been known to kick loose anywhere and everywhere. All you need is a cooler.

You might also sing: "Gin and Juice," "Love Shack," and "Red Red Wine"

Stay away from people who sing: "Wind Beneath My Wings"

This is a pack of lies:

Your Karaoke Theme Song is "Baby Got Back"

You're a total show off who is willing to risk looking like a fool to get a few laughs.
In fact, you'll go for the cheap laugh if you need to... because it's better than no reaction!

Your friends can count on you to get a party started, and you'll party hard until you can't remember their names.
You're charismatic, charming, and a total character. With or without a few drinks in you.

You might also sing: "I Touch Myself," "Oops I Did it Again," or "My Humps"

Stay away from people who sing: "Candle in the Wind"
