How are you today, hon? I hear it was some show last night.

MASSIVE SPOILERS CONTAINED HEREIN:

You know, it was a great show...but I have to say that if U2 does ever tour again (LOL), I won't see shows on the same leg again. The setlist was very similar to Philly I, and of course the many "surprises" were lost on me because I'd seen most of them last week. I was glad to have gone with Meghan, though, because she'd not seen them this time around yet. We squealed and jumped up and down and hugged like two little girls seeing the Beatles when "City of Blinding Lights" started.

That said, I was psyched that we got "Gloria" and "With or Without You." But I don't think a lot of folks in the crowd knew "Gloria"--I think more knew "Electric Co." and "An Cat Dubh/Into the Heart" last week. Bono's speeches were shorter. He definitely cut the "Jesus/Jew/Mohammed" thing and the "Father Abraham" thing down.

The girl he pulled up for "Mysterious Ways" and "With or Without You" seemed positively giddy when she got to run around the ellipse, and she, like the other Philly girl, seemed quite satisfied with a chaste hug from Bono...although she got to stay up on stage for WOWY, and I admit, THAT must have been pretty cool.

Yeah, it was worth it.

("Miracle Drug" would have been cooler with Ewen there, but...)

Lucky girl. I'm so jealous you got WOWY... The last time I heard that one live was May, 2001. Maybe in October.

I'm kind of with you on the more than one show per leg, since all three of my shows had COBL as the opener. I was really hoping for LAPOE to open in Philly, since we had such a great spot where they would have walked right past us, but it was still an awesome show regardless.

Hello 'Goners!

Just wanted to drop in and say "Hi" before I went shopping, so... Hi!

See you later!

The project I'd been working on for almost three months got sent to another department for review, and I was clicking through some of the comments from the review...there are 23 pages of comments, none of which are nice, and many of which were made in a bitchy tone; i.e. "This is the last time I'm going to make this comment," "This SHOULD NOT be happening," etc.

The worst part is that a lot of the problems aren't even my fault--they're technical problems that IT is going to have to resolve, not me. But it's still very discouraging, seeing all the nasty feedback and nothing nice.



My boss told me I did a good job with it in my 90-day review the other day, though. That's something.

The new kissyface one in Ewen's

Maybe me and Tim should take a kissyface pic. We never have. But were always kissing in front of people so I think weve subjected enough people to seeing that already.

OK, I'd say something about my yogurt right now, but I won't (thanks to the reaction I got the last time Abby, lol). It must be the sickness messing with my taste buds.

*grabs juice from behind bar, loads it up with vodka*

Ahh, much better.

How is everyone?

Abby

**Comes into the bar after shopping**

Just checking to see how everybody is doing before I go out and make some dinner...


Abby! Sorry to hear 'bout all the bad comments on your project, but to all the good comments you got at your review - remember them!


Demmy! The future President of the U.S of A is having a skip day? I'm very disappointed...
