Tonight is the anniversary of MacPhisto's phone call to Monique at KLM Airlines! It's a favourite of mine, and I'm amazed that his first attempt at a lengthy conversation turned out to be one of the best of the tour.
I wonder if Monique found the experience memorable! She seems really nice, with a good sense of humour - I'm glad he got through to her.

The faces he pulls from 3:47 to 4:10 are freaking hilarious - I love the sudden look of recognition and delight when he hears the on-hold music, LOL! Also the suspicious look in his eyes when he thinks she's not taking him entirely seriously.
His beautiful smiles are lovely too, and all that flirtatious batting of eyelashes at the end... <3
This show also featured a pleasingly enthusiastic performance of Desire - "I'm really burning tonight!
