So...did you get anything U2ey?

Did Santa leave you anything U2 related?


I didn't get anything directly U2 related but oddly enough I recieved two pairs of tuxedo pants and a red satin tuxedo shirt.
I also got a "Bono jacket" like the one he wears in "Stuck" but with a hood.

What about you? Share your booty...so to speak.

Lol...one of the pairs has Edge-like rhinestones all down the side. My Great Aunt said I'd look like Elvis and I said "That's the idea little momma!". Now she's calling me Mrs. Presley.

Olive....don't get your tearaway pants anywhere near a certain angel...they'd be gone in NO TIME.

Well, I got a karaoke machine and a voice canceler so I can take the vocals out of my U2 tapes and sing my own versions.

The whole thing actually started 'cause my dad wanted me to sing a Janis Joplin song and this old World War One Christmas song for him. Yes I am a good singer, some people are skeptical who haven't heard me...so I told him, Get me some equipment so I dont have to just sing them into a My First Sony or something. But after I knew I was getting the recording equipment, I was like, You know, I bet I could do kick-arse versions of "Van Diemen's Land" and "Two Shots of Happy"....

Hey-I got that book too!!

I got the Joshua Tree DVD that I already have-so I have to return it.

I got a new computer a few months ago, so that was my main gift-but today I got some candles, a nice striped sweater and some long sleeved t's, some CD learning software for XP...

<-----village idiot

Hmm-what else? Titanic on DVD, a patriotic mousepad w/ the flag and eagle on it, body lotion, shower gels, etc. A beautiful Irish crystal candleholder, movie gift certificates.

OK-I've bored you all enough

BONO sleeves?
Er.. in response to the original question.. so far, no. But I KNOW I *am* going to. (How do I know this? My relative told me it was U2. Of course right away I almost said,"ALL OF THEM? WHERE?" Anywaaay..) My main Christmas present was the concerts this year.. so in a way, I could list it like this:

- Bono smile
- Edge smile
- Bono's pant escapades

I am feeling incredibly silly.

"Don't call me Shirley." - Larry

"I was drunk, high on him, a shrinking, shadowboxing dwarf following in his foosteps...badly...STARSTRUCK.." - Bono, on meeting Frank Sinatra for the first time

No but I GAVE U2-ey stuff to my sibs and folks: home-burned CDs of some early Boy/October stuff, the "complete" JT, ATYCLB + B-sides, and the Tribute to Heroes music.

Also, just before I left to go home for the holidays, I received a copy of the U2 Encyclopedia as well, but blargh! on UPS! I was anxiously waiting for a copy of the book "Walk On" from Amazon, but they prolly delivered it 2 days after I left. So at least I'll have that to look forward to when I go back, yay!

p.s. I was disappointed in the Encyclopedia -see the thread I started a while back on this...

Four blown up and framed photos from my two U2 concerts from my mom. I cried. The Best Buy cd... and I got a cd-r drive that's not working right. I've already done this on EYKIW, and I'll do it again, if you'll direct your attention to the internet music board you will see my problem. It's about converting mp3s to AIFFs. *sigh* I am so not a techie. But I have to get HMTMKMKM on cd!!! *OH oohhh*
