An embarrassing moment (sort of)

I had a meeting in my office today... One of the attendees says "So, I take it you're a U2 fan?" and I said, "Oh, what made you think that?" moving to hide the LA Times article a friend brought me. He said, "Oh, the keychain, newspaper articles, wallpaper, you know, those things."



Here's my wallpaper:


*sigh* it's my own fault...

--
Love will make you mine
Creep up from behind
Get you jumping out of your skin

That pic is great! It inspired me to try that little heart thing with my hands just now (I am doing anything to procrastinate studying). My next picture pose!

I had to take my car in the other day and when I picked it up the mechanic said "you like u2, eh??". I didn't really realize until he said something but I have pins all over my sun visors, a luggage tag hanging from my rear view mirror, never mind about 15-20 u2 cd's, singles, and compilations in the pocket next to my drivers seat!! If he went in my glove compartment he would have found my "fly" shades!!!

Don't feel bad. Yesterday, my parents and I were in Home Depot, someone must have asked my father if he found what he was looking for, well, that was my cue. In the middle of the aisle, I BUSTED it out, arms flailing, singing, you guessed it, "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" When I realized I wasn't in my room, I looked around, gave people a sheepish grin and walked away. Mind you, I was wearing my U2 shirt.

Hee Hee! LMAO. The other day, my younger sister and I were making Christmas cookies and I needed the big wooden mixing spoon and I said

JessicaAnn: "Where's my spoon?" *This sent me into fits of laughter thinking about Adam. Then, to quote Sparky from the Simpson's episode, I said I'd go crazy without my spoons.
This elicited a very strange look from my sister
Sister: What the hell are you talking about?
JessicaAnn: Never mind *more giggles*
Sister: Wait, let me guess ... it's something about U2.
JessicaAnn: It's always about U2.
Sister: sarcastically Sorry I forgot.
JessicaAnn: Well, it's always about David Gray with you.

One gets lots of funny looks rummaging through the hat section in one's local Ragstock, muttering "Edge hat, Edge hat, Edge hat....."

:: blush ::

And that same trip I found a t-shirt with a big sunflower on it and it said 'u2 one' and it was really a tough decision whether to get it or not. (I mean, $20 for a secondhand t!) So I drooled and wibbled and carried it around the store. And got it, of course.

izzy (must hit Goodwill sometime. really need an Edge hat.)

this is why I love you guys....we're all a little U2-wacky!!! Before I got laid off, I had U2 pictures all over my little bulletin board, tons of PC wallpaper (embarrassing moment: my boss is in my cube and that gorgeous close up pic of Larry and his man cleavage came on...he literally stopped what he was staying and said "Who's THAT?").

The other day, I happened to talk to my [former] boss' boss, and he said, "I thought about you the other day...my car was broken into, and they stole all of my CDs except for two U2 CDs!" I was like WHAT?? Those FIENDS! They have absolutely NO TASTE at all!!!

Those losers! LMAO at your former boss, Disco.
My boyfriend hates when I put as wallpaper huge pics of my BBabe. He says: "Again? Look closely! Look! He's just an oldman! Damn it!" My reaction: at him.
Him: *super fumes*
Me: What? You're not that young for me ya know? (he's 11 years older than me)
Him: Shuts up and walks away

That will teach him!

LMAO My family mocks me. At work my dad saw a box that had the word edge on it with a sword though it and cut it out and gave it to me. My brother for the longest time wouldn't let me change the computer's wallpaper to something U2-related but has just designed a black and white background with 'U2' featured very prominently. It's pretty funny.
