I sold the Renoir and the TV set

Yet another lyric that makes NO SENSE. And I just don't care. On your left you'll see a poor picture of keyboardist Nick Rhodes, by far my favorite member of the group. Followed by Roger Taylor (drummer). There was a tie between John Taylor (guitarist) and Simon LeBon (lead singer) until Simon showed up at the MTV music awards sporting some Don Johnson scruff. The I was in lust. Never liked Andy Taylor, the other guitarist.

I had a dream about Nick Rhodes in this very sweater. It involved him picking me up late at night in a deserted shopping center in a small car. I think. There was a lot of keyboard equipment in the back. I also had a similar dream about Princess Diana, but there was no keyboard equipment. It's hard to say who I loved more. Anyway, if I haven't made it clear, I loved Duran Duran. I don't not love them now, really. I loved Princess Diana for a MUCH longer time.

On a completely different topic, there is a "contest" going on over at Tomato Nation raising funds for an amazing cause. Donors Choose is an organization where teachers submit their requests for funds to supplement their students. I just donated $10 to help buy 2 cellos for a NYC school. Last year, I helped to buy a graphing calculator overhead projector and a something else. So far this year, the Tomato Nation readers have raised over $100K during the October Blogathon, and the Blogathon itself has raised in the neighborhood of $234K with 2500 donors. Donate $5 or $50 or more if you can. Make a difference in the life of some kids, not only physically, but by showing them that people they don't know care about their education. Do it through Tomato Nation or not, it really doesn't matter.
