A box full of honey, indeed

Magnet #170 - Duran Duran's Red Carpet Massacre

A few weeks ago after a particularly craptastic day at work, I came home to a hand-addressed package with pretty, pretty handwriting. On the elevator ride up to my apartment, I wracked my brain wondering who I knew at this particular place, if it was something I'd forgotten I ordered, or, if perhaps it was a special surprise one of my friends had sent me.

It was better than that.

Remember my Friends of the band magnetpost on Duran Duran, where I said I'd run away with jaunty John Taylor if he asked me today?

Well, apparently, my people got in touch with his people. Because my people freakin' ROCK. Dudes. That package? Contained the RCM tourbook, and a signed copy of Red Carpet Massacre, as well as a very sweet With Compliments note from their people.

Holy. Freakin'. COW. This was better than being linked to on, or on Huffingtonpost. This was even better than the graduation Vermont Teddy Bear that VTB graciously sent (after this magnetpost) to the blogmocking cousin who dared to mock joy magnetism.

Look, rationally, I know that there's a stack of these CDs and books sitting around in some office somewhere - I don't care. It was totally sweet of their people to take time out of their day to send me something from the boys. While I'm a little embarrassed, it's still like the coolest thing ever, and I shall cherish it always. And, yes, I made a magnet out of the signed liner notes - it seemed quite fitting. It's in a little magnetic sleeve, and has been given a place of honor on one of the magnet boards. So, May and Sharon, if you're reading this...thank you very, very much.

And while I'm saying my thank yous, and without getting too maudlin, I get my fair share of readers, and it means a lot to me that you guys, my family and friends, and new friends, take time out of your days to read my silly little magnetblog.

Of course, I'm still waiting for John Taylor to show up at my doorstep. He has my address, after all. :-)

Happy National Duran Duran Appreciation Day!
