Julio Story Time

We (Laura (stories for boys), Lies(livluvandbootlegmusic), Ellen (ultraviolet light), Gina (hallelujah here she comes), Brianne (mirrorball girl), and I (me)
anyway, we showed up at the hotel and the bellhop (Julio) sees all our U2 shirts and says "oooh U2 fans! Are they in town?" yada yada, Brianne tries to explain our convention to him...
anyway, we're there at like noon, and the rest of the people don't show up until four. So we sit in the lobby because check in isn't until three. Whilst there we play with sock puppets, Larry's stick, Edge's pick, and look at concert pics.
Julio: *walks by and looks at the pics over our shoulder*
Us: Ummmmmm...
Gina and I were talking to each other with the socks... and we look up and basically everyone in the lobby is staring at us going :eyebrow:
Us: *hide in shame*
Julio: *points at the sock with the fro* Is that Adam?

We came up with various things to do with Julio such as dress him up, invite him to watch videos with us... The videos thing didn't go down cos he'd see our jimmyed TV and possibly tell on us.
So in the end we gave him a poster on the way out :-D
He thought it was SO cool. We're getting in our cab to go to the train station and Julio says "You girls stay cool!"
Me: You too!

***I posted this to see that Kristie hath already told the story while I was taking so freakin long posting this ... but oh well! Here it is again!***

BWAHAHAHA! Oh, that is fabulous. Loveth photos, girls! Yeah, so I'm still waiting for the hotel to call me and be like, "Um, so did you jimmy the TV in your room ... and put it back together using delicious chocolatey Kit-kat wrappers?" LOL!

By the way, although I wasn't actually there for the presentation of the poster to Julio, I can begin the Julio story. (Shannon, you might want to cover your eyes -- the story is about to be told again. ;) )

When we girls first arrived at the hotel on Friday afternoon, it was way before check-in time. However, we had ten tons of luggage, so there wasn't much else we could do around town. We set down all of our crap, busted out photos and presents and Pants and sticks and picks and CBB and sock puppets and U2 comic books ... and proceeded to engage in much chatting and laughing and general PLEBA-ness. Meanwhile, Julio, the bellboy, had seen the U2 members on various t-shirts and was all excited. He was like, "U2??" He wanted to know if we were in town to see them that weekend (Dude, we WISHED), etc. I told him we were sort of there for a convention.

Julio: "Really? Where is it??"
Me: "Here..." [thinking: "No, no, dude, you sooooo don't understand..."]

So , although I imagine we were entertaining and/or frightening anyone in the general vicinity, we sort of managed to forget about Julio. Kristie had busted out SockAdam and SockLarry, and we were having fun dressing them, etc. Picture the scene:

Laura: *holding The Pants in her lap* (I think she had them)
Me: *absently stroking Larry's stick*
Kristie and Gina: *holding naked SockAdam and SockLarry dressed in Adam's clothes, with Adam's fro and cigarette*
*having them greet each other in Sockvoices*
Lies, Ellen, Laura, and I: *giggling like lunatics at Sockpuppets*

We all suddenly become aware of the fact that...

Julio: *is standing about 2 feet away from the couch, watching us*
*sees fro on SockLarry*
asks: "Is that Adam?"

Us: *collectively die*

Seriously, we were cracking up, writhing around on the couches and chairs laughing hysterically in a combination of mirth and shame ... and Julio just stood there and kept watching us, grinning.

So that's the beginning of the Julio story. Kristie has already explained the rest of it. :D
