U2-related things that betray our obession

This thread is for talking about things that you've made or painted or bought that look like something relating to U2 or your favourite band member. Some people might not notice, some people see it, crack up, and call you a nut... and some things you show off cause you're darn proud of your fandom.

Post about all those things here, I guess... we won't laugh at you unless you laugh at yourself first. Posts I start usually end up arseways cause I'm an idiot in general, but hey, that's not stopping me from trying. I'll kick it off with a picture of some earrings I made. No, seriously.

I had some extra beads that didn't match anything, and I got bored, so I decided to make.... HTDAAB-themed earrings. Behold the sillyness. Feel free to say "those are ugly AND stupid!" because that's the general idea..



And this post has a lemon emoticon because it was THERE and it's a LEMON for crying out loud... why wouldn't anyone use it?

They are pretty cool! I haven't really made anything like that, but I did buy some red and black striped legwarmers because they reminded me of the HTDAAB artwork! Funnily enough, I've never worn them

I have a scarf that someone bought me for St. Patty's day and I keep it on my mirror next to my picture of Bono because it is an Irish Holiday

I've bought a black cap at the local grocery store once cause it was $2.00 and it reminded me of Edge.

have I mentioned that I look hideous in it?

I've also bought some Fly shades before at Walgreens.... yes. It was $1. I'm a cheap idiot like that

Those earrings are not ugly and stupid! I kinda like them!

I bought a big inflatable lemon on eBay cuz I like the Pop era. The thing is so big it takes up so much room and I wonder what in the HELL was I thinking?

I also bought an ugly black and red plaid backpack purse before the Tour cuz it's the tour colors and I call it my Vertigo purse!

I drew Bono and wrote 'Bono' on a lemon and gave it to my brother because he likes the song 'Lemon' I thought it was really funny at the time. And I've asked my nan to knit me a plushie Bono I'm not obsessive I swear!

two words: adam pants

oh oh and the male action hero role models

and my floor
though I'm not sure most of you were around when I did any of those... I have pictures on request.
I think those are a little more obvious than most of the stuff you're talking about...

I have a pair of dangly earrings with flies on them

you got it
I took like 4 pictures of the earrings... they're so tiny, I couldn't get a picture that wasn't blurry
here's the best of them



aaaand the pants, as seen in a super-grainy picture of me on the beach in florida. With my larrry shirt on.




I guess while I'm at it there's the U2 sock puppets... made by me and hippy


a horrible mosaic of the floor in my bedroom at home... the pictures on the sides of the white parts should be touching. I couldn't take a picture of all of it at once.
About 4 years ago my mom told me to rip up the carpet (yellow shag ) in my bedroom and paint the plywood underneath to seal it because she wanted to put down wood tiles. Since I could paint it however I wanted... I kind of ran with it. There's still no wood tiles in there.


and the male action hero role models were from a spring break of boredom... me and laura (stories for boys) and ellen (ultraviolet light) got together and bought some dollar store action figures. We sewed them U2 clothes and made a few videos with them (like a parody of the numb video)... here's an example:


that's it for now... I'm sure there's more, I was very bored as an undergraduate for a few years.

You all are so creative! The best I've done is have U2 pictures as the wallpaper on my computer at work. While that may not sound so odd, it probably is when you consider that I'm a middle-aged "old biddie." But I know what I like!
