Welcome back Bono-Vox!

Couldn't you just kill Mom's sometimes?

They have a certain way of taking things really lightly that could have a definite impact on your future! Example:

I got home from school two weeks ago and Mom goes...oh, there's a letter in your room that's been here for about a week and a half...It looks official, better check it out. I go and look and it's my registration statement for school that was due in two days! I could have killed my mom!

------------------
"A Bono approved event is a good event!"

You can dream, so dream out loud!

"The way to be optimistic is not to shut your eyes and close your ears." -Bono

Create Light, Create Unity, Create Joy, CREATE PEACE!

I'm embarrased to even admit this, cos I'm somewhat of a perfectionist, but since I've been laid off from this company...

when I first started working at company X, it was the telecom industry, of which I knew nothing about, learned from the bottom up (I was an admin asst.). One night, we were all working very late, I was very tired and my contacts were turning into potato chips in my eyes...all I wanted to do was go home.

My boss gives me a memo to email over to our customer (this was fledgling email time: 1989 or so). I read (poorly) this one particular line and typed in the email something about a jet airplane! Then I went home.

The next day my boss comes up with this *look* on his face and says, "WHAT were you thinking when you sent that email??" Of course I was a dorky girl and was all "what are you talking about?" And he said, "you sent an email to our customer about a jet airplane!! Were you on drugs or something?" But he was laughing...and the customer laughed too (whew!).

Over the 10 years I was at that company, this guy NEVER let me forget that one!

Edge *bluuuuuuush* over that one....

Yeah, me too. In my case though the stupidity was theirs as they first disconnected then changed the number with clearly no intention of informing me.

Here's one. On a high school camp (during one of those awful high-wire obstacle course things) I very nearly descended from a tree without my carabena (thing that's what the little metal connecting piece is called) attached to the correct rope. Which is to say I very nearly jumped from a twenty-foot treetop.

Im BACK from Dublin it was soooooo good!

I searched for Bono and i did nay find him but i was in this record shop and they were selling u2 vinyl with autographs and the guy said it was 400, i tried to use some of my lovely charm and give him 20 but he was having none of it and he gets all his autographs b/c his friend works in bonos hotel-he gets FREE autographs and wouldnt let me give him 20 for one, tsk tsk!

He said (in a REALLY causal voice) oh aye, u2 are in town sure i saw edge on grafton street this week, I was SOOOO distraught, i was on grafton st every day and i didnt find edge!


And my mum *thinks* she saw Bono in some fancy posh shop, she descirbed him as wearing "leather" with "lots of men walking with him-about 6" so i dunno if thats true or not but cest la vie

OH mona ur threads still flamin
