Hot Diggety Damn! I woke up with a slight headache…and it was well worth it.
Last night was AWESOME. My friend Heather’s birthday was yesterday. There was a listening party for Duran Duran’s new album, Paper Gods. Heather is a serious Duran Duran fan since they were birthed on Planet Earth. What a perfect circumstance. Guess what we did for her?
Erin began planning the night a few weeks ago and is a helluva party planner. We showed up at Radioactive Records for the listening party, Erin pops the trunk of her car and …SURPRISE! There was a party in her trunk…lol. Balloons and a Big Ol’ Happy Birthday sign floated out towards us. She’d packed a cooler with red velvet birthday cupcakes and cocktails. We all got our own personalized party cups filled with yummy drinks inside. Fun. Fun. Fun.
How Cool! What a super Best Friend move. You Go, Erin! Happy Birthday, Heather!
So after our curbside celebration, we ventured inside for some Paper Gods. First, let me just say that I almost had a music nerd orgasm as I walked inside Radioactive Records. I haven’t been in an honest to goodness record store in YEARS. Suddenly it was 1993 again and I was in audiophile Heaven. We walked the aisles and sipped our cocktails as we waited for the door prizes. Oh, yea. There were some door prizes to be won and I wanted the birthday girl to get one.
To get a prize you had to buy a Duran Duran album but the cool girl running the cash register gave me a couple of tickets for Heather when I got her Joy Division’s Unknown Pleasures album. Yay! How cool was that?
Heather racked up…lol. She walked away with a wall handing of the album cover, postcards signed by all of ‘her guys’, three Joy Division albums and…a frickin’ awesome turntable! You go girl!
Anyway…after that, I am not at liberty to tell. I will say this, it was one of the best nights I’ve had in a long time. There was all manner of debauchery that also shall not be mentioned and I gotta go get ready for Day Two of Heather’s Birthday Weekend.
Now…where did I put my devil horns?
