So, I opened the front door this afternoon, and received a very happy surprise! It was the self-addressed, stamped envelope that I enclosed when I sent Adam the engraved Ice Cream Dipper and requested a photo. I know you’ve all heard about this gift: there’s a YouTube video shot at the radio station when I asked Adam if he received it, thanks to my very good friend Lila. I’ve posted pictures from that day too, and that scene was even pictured in the May 25 People Magazine!
I very excitedly opened the envelope, careful not to damage what I hoped was inside. I pulled out a gorgeous picture of Adam. I can tell it was taken when he performed Satisfaction the first time, trying for votes to get into the Top 12. He’s dressed in all black, complete with several gold chains and necklaces. He has a microphone in hand and a full-on smile, so I think it was when he was receiving the judges’ comments. Well, not Simon’s, if memory serves me correctly! This was when we first heard the “self-indulgent rubbish” remark referring to the beginning of the performance!
The picture is a 5×7 computer print framed with a white border, on a full-sized sheet of photo paper. At the top, he wrote “Thanks Carol!” and he signed the bottom, Adam Lambert. I compared this signature to the self-made Adam Lambert CD I had him sign when he was exiting the radio station on Homecoming Day. On that day, he was in a hurry and his signature was rushed. The only letters you can clearly make out are the capital A, the capital L and closing “t.” However, on the picture I received today, the entire name is clearly legible, like the signature on the iTunes picture. I compared those two signatures closely, and was happy to see this is a fresh signature, not a printed version.
OOOHHHH – I’m so excited!! I think the last “fan club” I joined was when I was in elementary school – and it was for the “Shrimpenstein” TV show!! While that show had a very catchy theme song, I’d trade my “45” in a hundred times over to hear Adam sing again!
I’d love to share in your excitement too, so if you’ve received something from Adam, please don’t be shy!
