Ah! yesterday (6-17-99)
was a day of great rejoice! Geri's album arrived to record stores
everywhere! I rushed out as soon as I could to get a copy of my
very own, in my hot little hands. I dragged my mother into Sam
Goody at the mall (not my usual place to buy CDs, but we were
in the mall and pressed for time, so I went there.) to get the
aforementioned CD. To my delight, I was greeted by a large poster-type-thing
of Geri's album cover in a gigantic 'CD case'. I rushed inside
and grabbed a copy of the album. I examined the cover and the
sticker on the front that read:
From the woman
who defined Girl Power
HALLIWELL IS BACK
debut solo album featuring
1 of 4 Collectible Posters
I, of course, was
overjoyed by the fact that I was going to be getting a magical
little poster inside my CD :-) Once in the car, I opened my Cd
and I got the "Vamp" poster. I was happy cause that's
my fave "character" in "Look AT Me". Clutching
my CD, I wandered over to the 'H' section, just to look. I was
extremely happy to see that they had the "Look At Me"
import from England, CD2. When I bought the CD and single, the
girl behind the counter also gave me this little CD size packet
wrapped in plastic. I could see the 'Sister' picture of Geri.
The girl said it was a promo thing they'd gotten but hadn't used,
so I could have it. I was happy :-) When I opened it up, it revealed
four little cardboard card of Geri's "Look At Me" personalities.
But it's rare cause they say "Sister", "Vamp",
"Virgin", and "Boss". The "Boss"
one is rare because it is supposed to say "Bitch" but
it's regarded as a 'bad' word in America and if it's a display,
it might offend people. I also asked if they would give away the
big CD cover poster in the front when they were done with it.
She said she couldn't reserve is for me, but if I came back in
a month, I might be able to get it. I hope so! I would oh-so-love
to have it! It was really big, probably two or three feet high.
There is another, much smaller, Sam Goody around here that isn't
all that popular that would give it to me if they have it. They've
given me lots of promo things before because they don't have the
demand for them like the more popular stores do. I hope I can
As for the album,
it's fantastic! I really do like it! (I will try to have some
sounds up for you, but the files haven't been working right for
some reason.) All of the songs have a good beat to them and are
catchy. I personally really like Lift Me Up and Walkaway,
besides Look At Me.

that the girl behind the counter so kindly gave me:
