On October 6, 2005 I traveled to Greensboro NC, hoping to meet
Simon at the American Idol auditions. Since the next day was his birthday, I arrived with gifts and flowers in hand.
It worked. After giving Simon his gift bag and wishing him
a happy birthday (which, he reminded me, wasn't until the NEXT day...LOL) he waved me over for a kiss and I was able to give
him the flowers as well.
<insert death by emotional overload here>
Being able to see this on video is the most amazing experience
ever, second only to it happening in the first place. I would like to personally thank Tim Ervine, from FOX35 in
Mississippi for sending me this footage.
This footage was actually SHOWN
on the January 24 episode of American Idol!!!!
I'm shocked too.
Special thanks to Missy for making
the clip for me. And, for those of you wondering...NO, Simon DID NOT pay me $100 to make him look good. He manages to look
good all on his own.
