Ok, so I signed up to participate in Blogville Idol 08 and this is what happens: I lose my voice and end up sounding like someone who has had a hard life and spent the majority of it drinking and smoking crack: My current voice. It hurts to talk!
(Compare this to the entry I recorded back in March: Me in March.)
I have no idea if my voice will be back in time for next week but I really hope it will. Pray for me: I want to participate!
(Edited to add: I found some recordings I made for fun last year so I guess I can use one of those for the first round if worse comes to worst.)
