OMG!!!! I MET THE EDGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OMG YOU GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THE LA3 SHOW!!!

We tried to meet the guys before the LA3 show, but apparently they'd snuck in without anyone knowing. So after the concert (WHICH ROCKED SO MUCH HARDER THAN VEGAS!!!!!), on sore, aching feet, we ran to get our gear to be signed, and waited...and waited...and waited for SOMEONE to come out to either "shake or sign." About 1:00 AM, here comes BONO!!!!!!! OMG! *hyperventilate*

He walks down the first group of people, but everyone was SO excited and freaked out, that they surged against the barrier fence, and it started tipping. His bodyguard decided that was enough, so back into the car went Boner. He rolled the window down and gave us a wave and a smile as he drove off.

Just an aside, I completely ran out of film at the end of the concert, and didn't have any extra, so this didn't bode well for me...

I was SO exhausted (nearly 48 hours with very little sleep or food, my feet hurt so badly I couldn't think of much else...I would sit on the curb and literally start falling asleep where I sat); but we continued to wait it out. By this time, many of the once-large crowd had left, so we had probably 25-30 people left.

Many many limos, SUVs and the like were going in and out of the back entrance, and we saw a few famous faces: Macy Gray, Counting Crows and...NAOMI. *scoff!* Then at one point, a black SUV drove out, and a VERY wonderful woman (God bless her little cotton socks) rolled down her window and said crypitcally: "There's only ONE left!" So I yelled "Which one??" and she said "Edge!" and they drove off!! I was about beside myself at this news, esp. because everybody and their dog (literally, a dog too) from the crew was coming out to tell us "they're all gone, no one's left." Hmmm...

Finally--FINALLY!!!!!!--at about 2:00, there's movement, and a touch of crowd hysteria. Yes indeed, THERE'S EDGIE WEDGIE in his ubiquitous outfit of black beanie, tshirt, burgundy jeans jacket, jeans and tennies. He very calmly and nicely went down the row chatting to everyone and signing everything. OMG you guys....he was a FOOT away from me, AND ME WITHOUT ANY FILM, AAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!! Talk about wanting to kill myself. Edge came up (with his own pen!), and I said, "Hi edge, thanks for making these 14 years worth it - you guys were awesome tonight!" And he said "thank you." I pointed out the place I wanted him to sign my poster 9from the April 3 Dallas show), and he signed...sort of paused, looked at the poster...then made that little squiggly thing under his name! I WAS ECSTATIC! But still kicking myself for having no film. I yelled for Moonie to take a pic, and she did, but she only had two shots left on her black and white film (for some different effects from the show). Mrs. Edge, I desperately need your friend PHIL cos he told me he has a couple shots of us, I think!!

As he was leaving, I then yelled, "Hey Edge, see you in Dallas!" and he said "Okay!"

SO...IS ANYONE GOING TO THE DALLAS SHOW OR DOES ANYONE HAVE ONE GA TICKET??? Pleasepleaseplease....

OMG...the entire weekend was surreal, a blur, a head trip like I've never been on....me and Moonie are STILL recovering (my baby toes are still NUMB), we're still exhausted, and still drinking water like dried up human sponges. But oh baby...IT WAS ALL WORTH IT. Everything I've heard is true. I can completely understand why people get addicted to following U2 around the country and even the world, going completely broke (but being completely happy!) in the process. It was an AMAZING, ASTOUNDING, ASS-KICKING weekend!

This is the first of MANY MANY posts, and I will be gushing my little heart out when I get back home...I know it'll be a while "after the fact" but as I'm staying with Moonie, I don't have the luxury of getting on line for 8 hours a day like at home!

I'm just thrilled to have finally seen the boys in action...to see the Edge up close and personal and get him to sign something of mine. Worth every penny, every sore muscle, every sunburned patch of skin. I JUST SOOOOO LOVE THEM!!!!

I'll post more soon, so stay tuned...my journal has 20 new handwritten pages in it that need to be transferred to Interference!

Disco...on cloud nine, ten and eleven!!!!

I'm so happy for you Kelli-and SAD that I haven't met him-I must have 'scared him off' when I had my chance in June!

And sorry I missed your 'fight' with whoever it was outside the heart-I had to get the he** out of there and go back into the heart-I was being CRUSHED.

It was great meeting you And Edge is just SO HOT, isn't he?

Oh my gosh Disco!!!!! You got to meet Edge!! That is soooo awesome!!! I am such an ass though- I saw you and Moonie there and I never came up to say hi b/c you were in a conversation and I was too shy, haha. It was before the concert, where everyone was waiting for them to drive up, I was there w/ my friend. Blast- I wanted to meet them sooo bad! But I couldn't have waited till 2 a.m. b/c we were already on the road back to AZ. Dang girl that is so cool though! Congrats!! I hope I get to meet Edge in Phoenix!!!!!!

Hey Disco, you lucky girl! Great Edge story. www.ticketsplus.com has GAs for Dallas now at $75 plus $15 shipping. I know it's a broker, but that is really not a bad price at all, and you'll get to go to the show!

Hope I see you in line! Oh, and me, ABEL, Like O2, and anyone else who wants to come are going to have a little preconcert get together Saturday night, probably at the Tipperary Inn in Dallas.

Cool meeting you, Disco!
I wasnt able to stay after the show and thus couldnt meet the band, but i did meet Dallas, he gave me a guitar pic - a really cool one,signed my tag and told me he was gonna check in and reply to his Yahoo Fan club! He was soo sweet, he seemed to like my tag and my cross, and thought it was cool that i was from here. What a guy!

Look...look what you've done to me...You've made me poor and infamous, and I thank you...

How bout how little JesseU2 snuck under the railing getting his photo w/Edge? Edge just shrugged his shoulders and smiled..The crowd roared! Jess was just beaming..

When Edge walked by me..I says-"Edge hey youre better lookin than Ray Bourque!" and he goes-"Ha,ha"!

Surreal..what a nice man..

Go Disco it's your birthday!!!! Go Disco it's your birthday!!!! Go Disco it's your birthday!!!!

Wow girl I'm soooo amazingly happy for you!!!! Of course I left before then, I really couldn't stand up any longer so I'm not too disappointed.

I had a lot of fun hanging out with you and Dana in both Vegas and LA. Such crazy girls, we had a lot of fun and I really miss everyone!!!! *packing up to go line up in front of the staples center despite there not being a concert* sorry but normal life is just too boring, I wanna be sleep deprived, cold, hot, rained on, starving, etc with fellow fans again *pout*
