Hey, VP, I met a not to be named interlander, and gave that person an extra ticket of mine to a U2 show, for free....and that person did not recall meeting me. Talk about not being memorable!
Any trip that culminates in being towed 4 or 5 hours home is not a good one.

Giving a ticket to someone...wow, that should be a memorable occasion! I'd think anyone would be extremely grateful for that!

Hey Thora!

If I drift away for a bit, it's because I'm working on editing that damn list.

Nothing beats sleeping in the parking lot of the place across the street from the venue (the Palace can blow me, still to this day ), then making a mad dash for the GA line the day of the show.
I was at the Post the night before the first show...and then in the parking lot just before sunrise the next day...and in line. The next day, we didn't get to the parking lot till noonish, I think.

That place was beyond hellish.

Ah, the plotting night with the signs and running all the hell over the freeway. Good times.

I still can't believe what idiots those Palace guards were. Unbelievable. Oh well, at least the shows were fantastic.

I will NEVER forget that bully Quincy. Remember him? He tried to throw me out of the line. We argued for about 20 minutes. I think he was compensating for having a tiny penis.

I actually thought it was pretty funny. It does make for a comical story, and I only break it out for special occasions.

Lila, you'll remember me, won't you?????

On occasion - I was in London back in February with some friends for an overnight, and had a date in Windsor over the summer. That's the last time I've been, actually.

FYI - did you decide on a booth or a GA? I think I'm gonna stick with GA.

Short version (as opposed to the extremely long, detailed version poor NSW had to hear ) right after the first show, I rear-ended someone, hardly tapped him, he had no damage, but the front end of my car was crumpled pretty badly, but it was still drivable. I was fined, met a flirty cop who's originally a Canadian from Hamilton...left for home the day after the second show, and as I was merging onto the freeway, my hood flew open and scared the crap out of me...thankfully, I got over to the side safely, and ended up being towed home. $7,000 worth of damage to my car.

Best trip eva.

I consider myself lucky and honored to have been the recepient of the long version. It read like a good short story.

Going to go watch some more movies now. I'm being such a hermit this week.

Have been e-mailing my friend today re: New Year's plans, so we'll see how that pans out.

Got a text from Kissyface on Christmas day. Haven't replied because I don't want to give him the impression that I like him.

I just sliced my finger open. It's not deep, but it hurts.
