RSOC - Xmas meeting

Hey everybody and welcome to our first ever Xmas meeting. I hope that everybody is fine and having a great time.

I got the Boston DVD from my folks and Iīve been watching it all night. A certain bass player is looking great!!!!

Anyway, letīs get started. So how do you think does Adam spend Christmas??? I always think that heīs invited to his parents place and opens his pressies there. Then moves to his place to have a party

SO what do you think? And did Santa get you any U2 stuff???

My Christmas Angel!


Merry Christmas ladies! I hope everyone got what they wished for....we know we were ALL good this year!

Hmm...what's Sparky is doing for Christmas....I hope he is spending a happy holiday with family & friends...I hope he liked my gift! The delivery cost alone cost me a bundle!!
Of course, I will have to ask him when I visit Ireland next summer!! Yaayyyy!!!

I do so love this pic. Does anyone know what he's singing here or when this was taken?

Merry xmas, guys!

I'm a very happy girl right now. I got a beginner bass for xmas! I've been messing with it all day, and I've figured out Day Tripper and With Or Without You. I'm very proud. Heh.

Just thought I'd share.

izzybeth-try using webshots or google for the pics, but know that tripod and geoshitties don't let us post for some reason.

Merry Xmas Sparky gals!!

that's great news izzybeth! good luck with your bass! you seem to be a natural for it!
sadly...i am not making much progress with bass lessons...i am in the process of moving to a new place, so my life is upside down for the time being!

btw...that is a great pic....one of the few in which Sparky was caught singing! What a cutie!

speaking of asleep, i had my first real Adam dream last night!!!

it was not exciting in the least. the band was playing in a crummy sort of Kmart (but *not* Kmart, you know dreams...) and they were all there, but they were a little *off*. And I was uncomfortable, sitting on the lineoleum listening to them on a bad sound system.

it was so weird!

well..even though the scenery may have been off...at least you dreamt of them elizabeth, that in itself is a good thing!

sadly, i've never had one! i dunno why...though i did feel my "austin adam elevation experience" was a dream, even though it was very real!

i will tell you the abridged version of my story....
well, it was a magical experience for me,(a little background first) i had great seats to the popmart show, but was seated more toward the edge/bono side of the stage! then for the houston show, i had seats on edgie's side, so i vowed that the next time i would be right in Adam's sight and i did just that at the austin show. so, they came onstage and we made 'an almost' immediate eye contact, you know he scanned the area at first (checking out his side of the stage), the rest of the night was mine! my sister and my friend jen could not believe it! we were giggling like school girls....they kept telling me, he is looking right at you!!! of course i was on cloud 9, it felt so surreal to me. he'd smile that 'fatherly' smile at me and kinda laughed & nod his head b/c i sang along to every single song that night!
i only deviated from him for abit, bono came around to my side, he was like 2 ft from me (totally unobstructed) and i turned away to yell...wooohooo Bono! Bono!! you could say i got carried away in the moment. then i felt a poke at my back, it was jen motioning that Adam was looking right in our direction! I felt soooo bad! he'd noticed me screaming at bono! of course after this i really poured on the 'sparky' love...i kept cheering him on and yelling I luv you Adam!!! that remark brought out the biggest smile from him!
the rest of the show was wonderful! he was nice enough to pose for several pics, he even winked at me twice! the whole experience was thrilling, but the time went by so fast!
i still get chills thinking about it b/c i have admired & loved him from afar for half my life! he is a very special person and the fact that he knew who i was for that moment in time made it the best experience for me.
