Less than nineteen and a half hours till my very first U2 gig!

I can't believe I'm finally going to see them. I've loved them ever since I heard 'A Celebration' on the radio back in 1982 and went out and bought the single (one of the few who did - I only found out recently that it's one of the rarest of U2's singles, as it got deleted after 6 months - copies are now worth about £30 each! Not that I would ever sell.)

When I was living over in France for a year in 1983/84, I would listen to 'October' and 'Under a Blood Red Sky' whenever I felt lonely (I remember going into a record shop over there and asking for the latest album by 'Ooh-Deux', only to be told they pronounced it the same way as in English, lol!) I used 'New Year's Day' as lesson material.

'Achtung Baby' gave me a lot of spiritual support when I was going through a tough time and something of a personal struggle. The album just bleeds with the raw pain of Edge's divorce (as we now know in retrospect), but its honesty and struggle and pain were a great source of strength for me.

I lay on the sofa cuddling my baby daughter and sang along to Joshua Tree with her. Both my kids can now sing along to U2 albums. I must be doing something right as a parent *g*

Mysterious Ways may have had a hand in my taking up bellydance - now my second job. (The exact circumstances around my starting bellydance are now lost in the mists of time!) The Zooromancer remix of Salome was certainly the first bellydance solo that I choreographed.

And if it hadn't been for the old 'Zoo' on the original U2.com, I'd never have found my twin, Owl (who I may just possibly meet for the first time tomorrow - keeping my fingers crossed for you m'dear!).

And had it not been for the sexiness that is The Edge, I would never have known the joys of writing erotic fiction ;D

Is it any wonder I'm hyper at the prospect of actually seeing them in person in a mere matter of hours?

(Please keep me away from any caffeine or anything remotely resembling a stimulant, or Alan might just have to scrape me off the walls, since I could well essplode with the excitement.)

OMG, U2 tickets!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I'll have to find somewhere safe to keep them :D
*briefly considers keeping them in her bra until the gig but decides they might not be too legible after 3 1/2 weeks in there, lol*

I'm finally going to see them!

Back in the old days of the Zoo *sighs nostalgically* Regina always used to organise a birthday card and Christmas card for Edge and arrange for someone at Principle (I think) to pass them on to him. Nice idea. Some of the Edgers from there have set up a site for this year's Christmas card. So, if you fancy leaving a Christmas message for Edge, go to the link below:

There's a new LJ devoted to Edge!

Here: [livejournal.com profile] the_edgeu2

Lots of Edgepics, fics and general drooling planned.

Sounds like my kind of place :D

[livejournal.com profile] owl_at_the_moon, go and join straight away! *puts on best assertive schoolmistress voice as patented by my mother*

Naturally ....

You sure you're not one of them?
Are you sure you're not a member of U2? If you
aren't a band member, you're completely
obsessed and if anyone's going to queue for
days in the rain for tickets to their next
concert, it's going to be you.

How much of a U2 fan are you?

I wouldn't have dared post it if it had been anything less!
