Alright all of you 2005 Astronaut tour-goers, this one is for you!!
On this date in 2005, Duran Duran played at the Wachovia Arena in Wilkes-Barre, PA! Who was there??
On another fun, yet entirely random note, I had a dream last night. It is very rare that I’ll dream about Duran Duran (because let’s face it – that’s a sign that it’s time for a vacation.), but last night it happened. I don’t know where I was or why I was there, but I was speaking with a woman who had short blonde hair. She was thin, a little older than me, and spoke with a friendly, but clipped English accent (very similar to that of my mother-in-law, oddly enough). I didn’t recognize this person, but in my dream I knew who she was and that she was to be trusted. (dreams are so bizarre sometimes) For some reason I was telling her that we still (I’m assuming I must have been talking about Daily Duranie) get questions all the time about Dom and whether or not he’s touring with the band. For some reason it must have been quite a while since any of us had seen him with the band. (Probably because it HAS BEEN…) The lady turned towards me and I noticed she was stacking Dom’s CDs on a folding table in front of us, and she said “Yes, but he won’t be touring with the band. He’s going north…and then on to Italy.” Italy?!? Admittedly geography is not my best subject, but Italy is definitely not north of the UK on the world maps I’ve seen lately! I must have given her an odd look because she followed that sentence up with “You know he’s going to start playing oboe, right?” <insert completely blank look here>
I remember going through the seven stages of grief right then in my dream, as I thought about how I was going to handle this information going forward, and then I woke up very confused. What was that about?!
Oboe??? Interesting choice.
I need a vacation. 😀
