26 years & JC finally met Bono!!

I hopped the 7:15am train to Penn Station, got in at 8am, walked 17 blocks to the B & N store and got online at about 8:20.

They didn't give out bracelets yet, I waited and waited and finally someone came around and said there will be no more bracelets handed out you can form a line to buy the book. So thats what I did.

As I'm standing on line, who pulls up to the curb but Circa1992 and her family!!!! They are the nicest family! So, Circas mom got her bracelet and onto the 4th floor where the signing was. I didn't recognize anyone else except U2forlife who was at the head of the line and Headache, (he's a tall one).

At this time I had a few hours to hang around, the store and hung with circa and her family and met another girl and her dad who were really nice too. Paige wanted here Coexist headband signed so she could sell it and donate it to an African orphanage.

This poor girl and her dad traveled from upstate NY and got on line at 11:30 last night and didn't get a bracelet. She was so upset and no one would help her get her Coexist headband to Bono.

Every security person told you a different story so all we had to do was figure out where they were entering.

It felt like forever, but Paiges dad checked around the corner at the back entrance and sure enough thats where they were entering.

Luckily we got a place by the rail, and who comes out to check things out but Big John Bono sec. guard.

I cannot even begin to tell you how unbelievable nice and cool he is. Paige told him about the headband and circa told him about her hats and picture, and Big John told them he direct Bono over our way.

The band pulled up all together, I tried not to loose it. I really was afraid I was going to faint, and I tried to stop shaking so I can take pictures. They all got out, first Edge, who signed my military jacket on the arm and then stole my pen!

Then............. He is everything and more! So kind, doesn't miss a beat, it seemed like he heard everything and saw everything!

While Bono was signing things Larry and Adam came out and Adam kinda went right in and Larry hung around a little longer but soon he was in too.

So I asked Bono to sign, my Edun jeans and he said Oh! like he was a little surprised someone was wearing them and he said yeah I will sign your Eduns so I slipped my leg through the rails.
Thank God it fit cause the rails were up to my ribs!
So he signed my leg Bono vox after I had to get my pen back from Edge who wandered off with it. I said hey Edge can I have my pen back, Bono needs it. He said yeah sure! and came over and gave it back, he said (about Bono) he gets all the good stuff, and Bono just grinned.

I asked Big John if he could take a picture. He did, but people on the other side kept calling him so he wasn't looking at the camera, he was looking at was going on. He leaned back on me to take the picture, I thought I was a gonner!!! When I showed my son the picture he said MOM! Bono is touching your hair, this Bono hair!!!

So, hes sooooo awsomely cute! Love the hair love the jacket, you can see his blue eyes through the glasses and when he was signing my jeans I didn't even think he looked at me but he said & I thought I had blue eyes, I didn't say anything I was just in awe.

After the picture I said Thank you Bono I love you, He said Love You and turned and said good bye to everyone.

There a piece of the story missing that Circa will have to fill everyone in on.

me & Bono

Edge the greenest eyes ever!!!

Bono signing

getting closer....

you can see his blue eyes through his shades!

The grin we all love!

ohhh and the chin scar, I was trying not to stare, you know I lika the chin in one of the pix you can see it.

I am so exhausted the adrennaline rush I had today was unbelievable, I didn't eat until 6 tonight and only had a soda in the cafe while they were doing the press photos, I think I am actually a little dehydrated.

I just realized that Paul G is in the background of a pix and I did get part of Adam!!!!
