OMG I just talked on the phone with Einaudi!! - 11/19/08 11:59 PM

So I landed safe and sound in SF, on my way to the Einaudi concert. As the plane taxied to the gate, I turned my cell phone on, and it rang a couple of minutes later. It was AnthonyB, who asked if I had arrived, and we chatted a minute or two about the free concert in a music store that Einaudi was giving tonight, which Anthony was able to attend but I was not (I didn't find out about it until AFTER I had booked my flight ).

So then Anthony said something like "somebody wants to talk to you" and then another voice came on the phone, saying "Monica?" I thought it was some other PW member that Anthony had hooked up with, so I said "Yeah? Who is this?" And then the person said "This is Ludovico."

At which point I said something brilliant like "You're kidding!" and then started babbling and telling him how much I was looking forward to the concert tomorrow. He said "I will see you tomorrow" and then handed the phone back to Anthony.

Wow. Just wow. \:\)

The people around me on the plane thought I was pretty weird, though. ;\)

He's probably busy writing on some other forum,

"OMG I just talked on the phone with Monica K!"

I'm still tingling. \:\) But I'm insanely jealous of Anthony, who got serious FACE TIME with Einaudi and had him autograph his iPod. WOOT.

If you get a chance to talk to him, tomorrow, try not to babble incoherently...oh, heck...why not! Babble all over him, then get the vapors in front of him and let him be the hero who pats your cheeks and brings you around. Yai Yay!

Have a blast!

Yay Monica. Hey here's an Idea. Get a big poster and write in bold letters "I am Monica" and hold it up when the concert starts and when it finishes. \:D

I hope you get to talk to him.

That's great, Monica - you do seem to have a piano/airport kind of thing going. . .

After reading this, I've decided that AnthonyB is *my* favorite uncle - except that he's 1/2 my age.

I really fail to see what all the excitement is about It was just Einauldi.

Now, if it had been Norah Jones or Diana Krall or Keiko Matsui on the phone then I could understand what all the "blubbering" was about ;\)

Have fun and enjoy the concert (and please try your best to keep your undergarments on yourself and off the stage) :p

That's great. I have his book here at home, and I wish I'd mailed it to Anthony for a signature. I'm very excited for you all!

Ha! If you add up both concerts together I racked up a total of 4 autographs. I'm not sure he would have done any more. ;\)


I was really feeling sorry for Monica not being
able to make the extra performance due to her plane arriving too late. I figured it was just about the least I could do at the time. I'm glad she liked it so much.

I really did surprise her with it though. I wish I could have seen her reaction to the whole thing. I would have been priceless. \:\)
