Happiness in Geek land

Yes, I will be the first to admit that I am a total GEEK when it comes to Duran Duran. I have never really ended my love affair with them and this past Sunday night was just DREAMY. What made it the most fun is that I spent the evening with 2 very good friends of mine, Lisa and Illyse. Lisa...a durantard, like me, and Illyse a Duran Duran virgin. First we picked up Lisa, who just happens to live in Hollywood and then we went to dinner at a swanky Italian restaurant on Melrose. Here is Illyse actually volunteering to drink 1/3 glass of wine at dinner! And..yes those of you who know Illyse, YES she did turn red in the face and get a bit happy feeling.

Then off we went to the Nokia Theatre in LA to see "the boys". Here we are right before the show. Darn wind blew my hair swoop in the wrong direction. Otherwise I think it is a fun pic of the three of us.

The concert was of course fabulous, I did regress and turn back into my 12 year old self. Good to escape I guess. I hated to see it end,but I had a blast. Our seats were in row G so they were really a few good pics. Or at least good enough to satisfy me.
All in all a "funtastic" night. I think Illyse may now be a convert...she is no longer a naive little girl and she may just join the hysteria with us once again. :0) BTW Illyse, thanks for the yummy dinner and for joining me in my "world". Back to reality....sigh
