Oh, Laura! You are such an inspiration to tall girls everywhere! Yaaaaaayyyy!

I'm so happy for you. Tim had said his friend Laura got pulled up and in all honesty, I couldn't place who it was...

It wasn't until I saw a picture of you (it was taken from far away, with all of you on the main stage) and I thought, "OMYGAWD! That's *LAURA*!!!)

Uh, yeah. It takes me awhile.

I think you'll make the DVD. I can't imagine why it won't be on there.

What an experience! Soooooo happy for you! Yay! The next time you're in town, I'll have a hug waiting.

Does anyone have video of Laura's 2nd performance? I only saw the first night (and a pic of night 2).

Great composure through the 2 shows. If I was up there I would have been freakin' out, so nervous, etc. Great job. You made the Chicago shows so much more special!

I only saw a video of your first performance and was struck by how COOL you were up there, wow! You appeared so very relaxed and it was so precious to see how Bono was smiling the whole time.
I'm so happy for you that you had this amazing experience. Now I'd love to see the 2nd one as well, can anyone upload it?

What an awesome story!
"Mediocrity is never so dangerous as when it is dressed up as sincerity." - Søren Kierkegaard

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Hey Laura,

During the Monday show, I was standing next to Tim ( to his left), and guess what? I had a camera, and you were right in front of me. You can view some of the photos here (my girlfriend's website):

I think I probably have about 6 or 7 high-res pics total. I tried to take some photos as you were being let back into the crowd, but it was very pushy then, so they got blurry, but I can send those to you as well. You did an aweseme job!

also, check out my other webpage: (just for fun)

"...and next thing I know I’m being hoisted up onto the stage."

Hahaha, that's where I come in. Thank you Laura for my most memorable person hoisting experience.

Seriously though, I was right there and saw it all. Bono loved it! We all loved it in that section! Congrats and SWEEEEEEEEEET!
