Pinky's Fandance, Saturday Edition

In an effort to be an effective blogger, give you all the juicy DD details, AND keep up with the daily postings you love (like Celeb Wrap Up and Pinky's Fandance) in a timely fashion, I'm going to combine the DD update and my Fandance. Yes, you'll live. Plus, it'll be super exciting! Right? :)

Here's the funny thing about this picture (other than the tears in my eyes....embarrassing....)...Simon LeBon is actually my least favorite member of Duran Duran. Yeah, I said it. Andy Taylor used to be my least favorite, but he quit (what was he thinking?!!?), so Simon took his place. My true loves (in order) are: Nick, John, Roger, and then Simon. Granted, Simon is an amazing performer and great singer, but he's just not my TLF. Still, he is the lead singer of Duran Duran and therefore I was all about getting a picture with him.

So, there I was in the Palm, circling and circling (times infinity) for any sign of my beloved band members at one something in the morning and I'd *just about* about given up (as even I have some limits). I decided to circle ONE more time and just happened to see Simon walking out some door with a girl. I ran up next to him with my camera and said, "Simon, can I please get a picture with you?" Sadly, he *tried* to pull a "Kelly Clarkson" on me (i.e. looked straight ahead/down and pretended to go spontaneously deaf at the sound of my voice), but I was having none of that. Hello, it's DD!!! So, I kept up next to him and explained how I'd driven down from SLC and would he please take a picture with me (yes, I'm classy, I know). He said if I could take the picture while we walked, he'd take it. Well, I just happen to be incredibly skilled at walking pictures, so waa-laa. Picture history is made. Thanks, Simon! After the picture I'm pretty sure I told him he was brilliant that night, but I'm certain he could give a crap less about my opinion. Oh, well. At least I got the pic, right? :)
