Caption book, Edge got it!

To the Mods: I know this probably needs to go to the fan meeting discussion section but since this is a specific act of getting the caption book to the band oppose to a random meeting act, I thought I put it in Pleba. Also I started a new thread because I want to let the Plebans know quickly that the deed had been done.

I'll skip all the boring bits of the 2 hours of travelling, walking/waiting in the rain (it rain all day), hungry pains and the anxiety you get when you go to the bathroom and wondering if you have missed the band. About 4 pm I made my way back to MSG (Madison Square Garden) entrance to where the band would come in. I had just missed Larry by 5 mins. Since there were less than dozen fans, I was able to stand next to the railing. About 15 mins later a black town car pulled in the driveway. Its back windows were darkened, so you couldn't see who was inside. But 5 mins later, the car backs up and the bodyguard gets out with an umbrella and then...out comes Edge! He shook a few hands. Someone asked him about posing and he said that he couldn't pose, they would have to snap away. As he got closer to me, I began to slightly panic because the book, wrapped in clear plastic, wouldn't come out of the damn book bag I had it in. I thought geez, I'm this damn close and Edge is going to passed me by. Luckily, someone else next to me was having her on moment of trying to find paper for Edge to autograph. By the time he was in front of me I had the book in my hands and I said, "I don't want anything from you, I just want to give you this. It's a gift." He said, "Awww, thank you", and stuck his hand out to shake it. I shook it. I think I said you're welcome and smiled but I can't remember. He went back down the line shaking hands and signing autographs. As he made his way back to the car, a chorus of "thank you" arose and I wave my hands. Edge looked my way and raise the book in the air. He got in the car and it pulled in the underground garage. Next came Bono in a black SUV, he waved but didn't stop. Adam came last in a black town car; he rolled down his window and waved but didn't stop. No one else came outside.
And that's it.

The concert was great and I had a great time by myself (watching people getting drunk and stoned is sad but amusing). Despite cold feet, hungry pains and a lost earring, it was just like the man said, "it was a beautiful day".

That would be awesome!

I can post which one of mine got in.
Cassandra emailed me about it.

Perhaps others can do the same.

Maybe we can post them in a new thread.

Can't stay for long today (boss got me working my butt off today because I was out on Friday), but I would like to thank everyone for the encourgement and postive thoughts. I'm sorry I couldn't send a photo of the book, but just image a aqua blue and white raw silk fabric cover and the "pages" in colors of blues, greens, purples, reds, and orange cotton fabric-all hand-dye by me. There is a title page, intro page and beach ball intro page. Roughly 137 captions on 120 pages submitted by 60 talented Plebans. You know I felt empty this weekend after the concert...we may have to do this again...I even have a title "All that was left behind..."

I do have copies of the captions, so if anybody still wants me to send them their entry, just leave me your email. Gotta go.
