I was in Vegas

For about 8 minutes, by the phone. It was the most amazing, heartbreaking and funny minutes in a very, very, very long time.

I phoned my dear friend ZooGrl during the show and came in in the middle of New years day. It took a few seconds to hear what song it was but when I did Bono bursted out in one of his famous houlings from the bottom of his heart and I just started to cry. Sitting at my kitchentable, on the other side of the world, 9 hours ahead in time, ready to take in my breakfast and head for work, I got to be there, in Vegas at a U2 concert. How many gets the chance to start off the day with a U2 show, live brought home to your own kitchen???

New years day they played I will follow and I started to smile hearing ZooGrl screaming like a maniac. LOL From tears to laughter...

Just wanted to share those precious eight minutes with you girls. My life has been like hell the last couple of weeks and I've been wanting to go to NA so badly. I couldn't but at least I got to hear them live in concert over the phone and it was almost great enough.

Have a great day everybody, I'm sure gonna have it!!!

Looking at U2tours.com... it looks like it may have only been a snippet... but I still would have loved to have heard it!!!
