Contest Winner makes Mr. Fab WORK

Dawn from So A Blonde Walks Into A Blog... won the contest, even though she was sure that Mrs. Fab would throw her entry away if it was drawn.

Mrs. Fab is made of sterner stuff than that.

Blonde's choice was James Blunt's You're Beautiful. Of course, it was the one song I wasn't familiar with. But after looking it up on iTunes, downloading it, printing out the lyrics, and practicing it many times...well...it could be argued that I still wasn't familiar with it.

But I gave it my best shot. A deal is a deal. It is a nice song. I apologize in advance for ruining it for those who like it.

And thank you to all who entered, and who checked out my very first renter!

I downloaded the "mature" version for one of my kids a couple of months back, and have been assaulted by Blunt's "fucking high" in place of the "flying high" you have in your cover.

I want to drive a stake through his heart for this.

Haha. You are so brave! But you know, it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I was kinda ready to cringe when I clicked on the audio button. Bravo to you!

Well, it's apparent that Mr Blunt is not going to be out of a job. But if he wants backing vocals you may just make it. LOL.

Your version did bring a tear to my eye but not for the right reason. :D

That was very interesting. I agree with Marty. Every time I hear that song on the radio, I want to hunt down James Blunt and bludgeon him with a blunt instrument... but I had no desire to kill you at all...

Oh my gosh....I am literally ROFLMAO!!!!! Not at your singing...just that I finally got someone to sing that to me, even if it was forced, rofl!!!!!!!!!

My daughter said you "weren't that bad," and I agree!

Thanks for making my day! And thanks to Mrs. Fab for letting you sing it!

I had such a great time and I felt bad that I wasn't able to visit more over the week I was here.

I got offended when Mr. Fab said, "People who salt their food before they even taste it should be put to death." and I had to fight to keep Mike out of my drawers.

Yeah, I put salt on my food before tasting it but it's only because I KNOW there's not enough on there.

All in all though, after my salt induced temper tantrum and the really nice drinks provided--my stay was

FABULOUS!

Go figure... :) Thanks Mr. Fab.

Beady--You are making me blush

Dawn--That is a relief, because you could totally kick my ass!

ABB--Glad I could make you smile!
