Holy cow guys!!! I forgot to tell you THE most exciting news!! I’m going to see Duran Duran in concert on Thursday night!!! Yeah, see, I don’t care that they haven’t been popular since the 80’s, this is a teenage fantasy come true. When I was 14 years old (waaaayyyyyy back in the day) I had over 200 posters of Simon, John, Nick, Roger, and Andy all over my bedroom walls. See, back then there were two schools of adoration: you were either a NKOTB fan (or as we liked to call them New Dorks On The Block), or you were a Duran Duran fan. I was the latter – BIG TIME. To say that I had a mild obsession would be putting it, well, mildly. I loved me some D2. My bff at the time, Kris, shared in my obsession and we would spend hours, HOURS Y’ALL, pouring over magazines and listening to cassette tapes of all their songs. Duran Duran totally defined my junior high years. And in 57 hours, I am going to see them live. LIVE Y’ALL!!!!! I am so excited I can hardly stand it. Oh and another cool thing is that my 24 year old niece is going with me – I hope I don’t embarrass her!! 😉
Throw me my mom jeans! I’m going to see a band that hasn’t been popular in over 20 years!!! WOO!!!
(I”m trying to post a video but YouTube is being stubborn. I”ll try again later!!)
ETA: I just found out that D2 has cancelled their Tulsa show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am absolutely bummed beyond words right now. Why? Whywhywhywhywhy????????????????? I’m going to go cry now.
