news from Dublin!

okay, here some news (not really important, but....)

In december, dallas told a friend of mine that the album would be finished in march

a friend of mine was driving a few days ago, and larry was driving also, just in front of him, he came back from the studios

i learnt that bono went to a U2 tribute band concert in dublin, called rattle and hum, in a small venues, like a pub (go to see them, they are good, and also Zoo 2, very good too!!!)

i went to the studios on friday, thinking nobody will be there... But sam (larry's tech) was there (when he is there, the band is usually coming), dallas was certainly there, a lot of guys from the management kept coming in an out, bringing papers and materials (as always).... i dunno if edge was there or not, coz when edge is here, he parks his car at the end of the garage, where no one can see it ... so maybe edge was there, but not the other members... i left at 5pm, so, i will never know

I saw larry with 2of his kids in Howth , in a shop...he goes there really often during the week-ends...

I went to killiney on sunday morning...

BTW for those of you who want to come to Dublin, and who want to go to killiney during the week-ends, u have to know that the DART(train) is not working from Pearse to Bray (so to go to killiney), so u will have to take the bus to go there... and if u don't know dublin, u will be lost, so, i advise u to go to killliney or to the southbend before saturdays...

well, i passed in front of a church, and i knew it was eve and jordan's school... there were a lot of cars... my friend said maybe there were there... well we decided to get off and go to the church... it was 11.30, the mass was about to finished...we looked like fans, u know, really tired, with big bags etc ... so we didnot enter, we just listened and looked through the window... then we took the way to go to bono's house and so the way to the beach (as we are doing almost every week-end this trip to breath)
when we were on the road, just in front of bono's gate, we heard a car coming from behind us, so my friend went to the left side of the road, and i stayed on the right... i stopped coz i wanted to cross the street... i turned round to see where was the car (i was waiting for it to pass)
and there, i saw this small girl, looking like eve, and then i looked at the driver: that was ALI!!! behind, i saw jordan and the 2boys... the car passed, i crossed the street, and i said to my friend, very quietly :" that was ali"....
the car stopped in front of the garage, we stayed where we were, not in front of the gate, but on the street , just like people walking, (but we could see the gate), so that she couldnot know we were fans (actually, we were not there to see bono, but the beach!!!)... they entered...

and then, we heard babies sounds!!! u know, we heard a lot of noise, people getting out of the car, and closing doors, talking to each other... but the loudest sound was the shouts of John... geez, we looooove babies, when we see a baby we are like so, just imagine our face, just hearing small bonos ... u know, this sound when babies are playing, talking to themselves and shouting, that is what we heard!... then we heard ali: "come on john!" he was certainly playing near the car, while ali and the girls were waiting at the main door for him!!
then, we kept saying: "we heard voices of small bonos"

that was the nicest moment in my life!!

so, well i think they all came back from the mass, in the church we were just 2minutes before!!

so, that's all with the news for today!!! i will give u some updates later on!

miss-U2, thanks for the news!

I want more details of the Larry & kids sighting. Do they look like him, was he alone with them, does he look like a good dad and that kind of stuff?

Miss U2, when you see Bono next, tell him he needs to replace the paper in the loo!
By the way, what denomination is that church?

I want to apologize for that double post. My computer is really messed up and I only thought one posted. By the time I got it working again it was too late to edit. I meant to say the flushing things, it's obvious the seat is wooden

Anyway, cute story, those kids are

yeah it is a catholic church... i prefer not to say the name of the school, in case some bad people have bad ideas, as bono received threat oever his family... we never know!!!

i don't think it is gold it shoud be!!!
normally, there is always paper in the loo... it was not the good day

well, larry was with his 2first kids, i don't know their name.. aaron and i dunno...ava ? i felt bad, i couldnot look at them, like for the ali story... but yeah, they look like him, the boy has his nose

Thanks for posting those pics Ireland is such a pretty country

on another bathroom related note, the toilet in the my room at the hyatt in Atlanta was the loudest I've ever heard! Everytime it flushed, I was afraid it was gonna wake up people in the next room

I can't believe I just posted that

i forgot to say that larry had his baseball hat on, nobody talked to him... and his kids have blonde hair...

i know it is expensive to go there... in Europe, we have Ryanair, that's really, we can have a flight for 5dollars... i am so sad cos it is not fair

I may have used that very toilet back in april! ha ha The Clarence was so lovely - nice and simple, but gorgeous! Yummy drinks in the Octagon bar, too! You're lucky to get to see anyone - I hung out at Bono's house in a downpour and didn't see anyone coming or going! Anyway - it's great to see the pix. I so want to go back!
