Did the same last night...

Different band, different phone, different person at the other end ...

i'm an old fart


why is everyone nodding? especially at the 'fart' bit?

my sister got me into U2. she wasn't a fan herself, she just had October on cassette and I 'aquired' it. I didn't become an uber fan until Live Aid. creepy coincidence, the guy with the big tongue (lol icelle) on the other page, my nephew, was a little baby on my lap while I was watching Live Aid in 1985, on a black & white tv at my sisters.

I kept calling random people on my phone throughout the concert - people I hadn't spoken to in months.
I just wanted to spread the U2 love.


Actually, funny thing - I got a call halfway though SYCMIOYO from a friend of mine who didn't know I was at U2 and doesn't like them apart from that one song. I had a completely delayed reaction - I answered the phone normally and it only registered with me that I was actually in the middle of a concert when she said 'why the hell are you playing Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own so loud?'

You remember watching Live Aid?

I wasn't ing at the old fart bit, either.

I wish I had a cute "so and so got me into U2 story" but it was really kind of just myself... I'm at fault for my own demise, so to speak.
