I remember this story as if it were yesterday...I was all of 5 years old; my parents had taken the family to a popular Mexican restaurant in Wilmington, CA...BTW, this was WAY before there was a DOOZER...

Anyway, my mother ordered me a regular hamburger off the list of mexican dishes...naturally, my burger took the longest...my older brother and older sister and parents were eating...the waiter finally showed up and said, "here's you meal, next time, call ahead and we'll have you burger waiting for you..."

Even then, never at a loss for words, even then, I said, "I can't call you, my mom didn't pay the bill and our phone is disconnected!!!"

I used to think the song 'Dude Looks Like A Lady' by Aerosmith was 'Do It Like A Lady'. My mom still makes fun of me.....

This isn't something I said, except when I told my friends at work about it, but I tried to type in a number in Excel...on my phone's keypad. I got upset when nothing was typing and I couldn't figure out why, plus all that beeping was really annoying. My brain's not at work today.

I can understand that. I do stuff like that all the time.

Gotta be my sig. I was outside the Ed Sullivan Theater waiting for U2 to come out of their late night practice session after the Letterman show. Bono came out, started to work the crowd on my left. Then The Edge came out, worked the crowd on my right. The Edge looked exhausted, so he moved down the line much faster than Bono. He got in front of me, took my Sharpie and signed my NLOTH album. Then he proceeded to use my Sharpie to sign all the items shoved at him. In the meantime, Bono crossed his apth and started signing for the girl next to me. With no Sharpie in hand, I suddenly got a panic attack and thought Bono is just going to skip me completely because I didn't have a pen for him to use! So I yelled as loud as I could, trying to get Edge's attention. "Edge, can I have my Sharpie back, please?" and pointed to my marker. He looked at me funny, but he gave it back to me. When I saw his look, I felt kinda stupid... WTF was I doing?? This is THE EDGE... someone I will gladly give one of my kidneys to! And yet I couldn't spare my Sharpie for him... x1000

Bono ended up signing my album with my Sharpie, but I'm sure he would have signed it with some other pen if I hadn't had it...

Was I there when that happened? I don't think I was because I would have remembered that

No, I think this was the only night that you weren't there, Laura. This was Tuesday night, I think? When they took their own sweet time practicing and didn't come out until after 9pm. You had to catch the train back because you had to work the next day or something like that.

I froze my toes off that night... but the wait was so worth it.
