Okay…I'm geeking out, or at least I did geek out REAL bad yesterday at roughly 4 p.m. C.S.T.
That's when the mail came. And I geeked out royally.
The backstory first…
I have a friend named Krista, who is a righteous babe, a music publicist and a digital scrapbook product designer, and who also has one extra tag she can boast: one who has MET Neil Finn. (and if you scroll down her blog post, you'll see the proof.)
So anyway… she kept me rapt with her extremely detailed e-mail recounting of that fateful night. I LOVED reading all the little bits. I get what a big deal it was to meet him. BELIEVE me. I get it.
So in the meantime, she tells me she's sending me some CDs (remember, music publicist) to check out, and the package arrived and i was like, "Cool. New Music." Then i opened the package, and the geeking commenced:
I present to you the front (which Dan had to gently point out to me was a series of anagrams based on the name 'Crowded House'):
And then I present the back, which i actually saw first when i opened the package:
Kiaora to YOU, Mr. Finn.
Thanks, Krista. That was the best surprise I've had in many moons. Many, many Finn-laden moons.
