See, your chemistry class was cool. In my high school chem class, people would randomly yell out "MOLEY MOLEY MOLEY!" like Austin Powers in Goldmember. And there was that one girl who would excitedly shout "MILLIMOLE!" in an Indian accent whenever she saw the symbol mmol. No one really knew why she did it.

I do remember being incredibly amused in Grade 9 social studies class when we started talking about elevation in terms of cartography. In fact, if I remember correctly, I wrote the lyrics to the song in the side margins of my text book. I must see if I still have that book! I wrote the lyrics to New Year's Day in the front jacket and got them all wrong.

I've experienced all the typical correlations with people, but more commonly I'll enter a situation and think of a U2 song.

"Vertigo" when I'm in a nightclub or bar...

"Beautiful Day" whenever I'm driving in heavy traffic. sitting at a gridlocked intersection.

"So Cruel" whenever I see friends hurt by significant others.

"Kite" at funerals

"Wild Honey" when jogging through the park.

When I was getting dressed this morning, I noticed the coathanger my shirt was on had the word PAPAYA on it.

Reminded me of the U2 bootleg of the same name.

I was sitting in my friend's kitchen (she doesn't know anything about U2) and I noticed that on the jug of lemonade, were, surprise surprise, lemons, (with the writing LEMON) and as I was giggling by myself a FLY landed on the table. I said to my friend "oh look, that's bono" and she had no idea what I was talking about. I said nevermind.....

Almost everything related to travelling makes me think of ATYCLB and the suitcase-logo..

And of course there are U2 lyrics for every situation imaginable.

LOL Danospano there is actually a nightclub in my uni called Vertigo! Every time I walk in everyone wonders why I am so over-friendly, as I always say hello twice.
