Help me what to choose...please?

Okay, here is the deal. I'm getting ready for my 3 weeks annual vacation. I'm heading to my place at the beach next Saturday . I don't think I will be able to spend 3 weeks without U2 all around me , so I'll take some of my stuff with me, as usual. The problem is: unfortunetaly I don't have my VW Parati anymore (it's a station wagon, with lots of space). I was left with a small GM Corsa slightly bigger than a shoebox, LOL, so I have to decide, you know, about "all that I can't leave behind". I've been strugling all these last days, so I thought you may help me to choose.

Here are the possibilities in videos, books and CDs:

Videos (no DVD player at the beach, only an ancient VCR, so no Boston DVD in the list):
Rattle and Hum
Achtung Baby the videos...
Zooropa live from Sydney
Popmart from São Paulo
Popmart from México

Books: I'm taking Carter Alan's The Road to Pop, the one I'm currently reading plus one of these:
Three Chords and the Truth
Bono The Biography
At the End of The World (re-reading possibility )

Now it comes the worst part...the CDs. I think I should take a few albuns and concert bootlegs, maximum of 10...and no singles, due to lack of space..the only exception might be my new canadian Stuck single . The ones I have been thinking of are:

ATYCLB
POP
UF
JT
UABRS
Popmart São Paulo
Popmart Sarajevo
Popmart Buenos Aires
ZOO Europa
ET Miami 03/24/2001
ET Notre Dame 10/10/2001
ET San Jose 20/04/2001
ET Phoenix 28/04/2001
Riverboat President New Orleans 02/11/1982
Salome CD 1
Salome CD 2 (I'm not fond of the 3rd one)
Unplugged
Irving Plaza
JT Tour San Francisco 04/25/1987
Zoocoustic
Happy New Year Dublin 12/31/1989
The Million Dolar Hotel soundtrack

and there are also some compilations I made, 3 CDs, I might pick one of them...man, this is tough, LOL

So what would you choose from the list above? Any help will be very much appreciated.

Books: I'm taking Carter Alan's The Road to Pop, the one I'm currently reading plus one of these:
At the End of The World (re-reading possibility ) This one's always worth the re-read!

ATYCLB

Thanks hippy
You know what? I left AB out of my list on purpose, because of Zoo Europa boot and the others from Elevation Tour I intend to take...but early this morning I realised I couldnīt survive for 3 weeks without So Cruel and Acrobat...so that CD is heading to my suitcase right now, LOL

Iīm a hopeless case

Ah yes, I was wondering where AB was

Anyway, I hope you have an awesome time! And get to relax some, if that's what you need! I know I would love to go on vacation right now! (Even though I just got off of it )

Have a wonderful time!

I'd seriously consider going out to a CD store and buying a pouch for CDs... I have 2 and they allow me to bring about 70 CDs with me to school every day with few negative repercussions

hippy, cass, NicaMom, thanks for the good wishes...yes Iīm tired, Iīm a 8 hours/day worker (more like a slavery...) plus all the housework plus the kids and husband plus the U2 groups I moderate here plus the news and articles I write about the band plus my english course...believe Iīm done, LOL

SkeeK, thanks for your advice, but I must restrict my stuff to a few CDs and videos, you know, I have 2 kids and they also have lots of things to be acomodated in that egg-shaped damn car, LOL, oh how I miss my old station wagon...

Crzy, yup, my birthday will be next week, but I wonīt be around...no computers for 3 weeks...but I will survive...I will survive (impersonating Gloria Gaynor, LOL)


Iīll be here until this Friday. But...I`LL MISS THE SUPERBOWL STUFF, damn it. Okay, I better calm down now, LOL

If it's any consolation follower, I am scheduled to work from 4:30 until 8 the night of the SuperBowl...wouldn't it figure...the ONE time in my life I actually want to watch the SuperBowl and I have to work...thank the lord for VCRs (if there was any way I could copy a tape for you I would, but unfortunately I don't have the equipment )

Have a wonderful time!

It's a case of ATYCLB and in alot of cases on here one thing is U2 lol *thinks about taking the band members on holiday *

Anyway ZooTV for videos (you have to have Macphisto)

Live CDs (good mix of songs) and ATYCLB cos you might have a bad day and need Beautiful Day and Stuck

Book At The End Of The World
