When did you realize???

I was driving home from work on friday, with my too long sleeves covering my hands, my bono-ish shades on, listening to Bono sing "tuuuuuurrrrrnn iiittt ooooonnn, turn it on, turn me on" over and over again, in my u2-azzled (is that a word??) car, and I realized that this has gone too far......


And I am so happy about it.

When you stop taking chances,
You stay where you sit,
You won't live any longer,
But it'll feel like it,
-Summer Rain, Bono

OMG *FUZZIES* When I started wearing my pewter heart suitcase necklace everyday. Even though it's kinda big and I look like a (poor) rapper.

Bono's contagious. That's all.

*camo hat*

Or it might just be Post-Elevation withdrawal...you never know.

Make cookies in the shape of Bono. That's what I do.

MOM: Why does that cookie have big eyes?

MONA: Those are his SHADES, mom.

MOM: ....shades? OK....em....where are his hands?

MONA: *sigh* His SLEEVES are covering them. GEEZ, Mom.

3 months later:
A green, moldy, festering, hardly recognizable cookie is found in Mona's room, with the cookie nose bitten off.

Weeelll,

I think I realized how bad I had it when I turned to my best friend and, with a determined look on my face, decided that U2 ROKS would be better for a license plate than BOOKWRM... you know, the coolness factor would be more on the U2 ROKS side than the BOOKWRM side, although I'm a verocious reader.

And, ever since I've been getting worse. However, I think it's a good sickness. I've met lots of cool people and have even made some really good friends. So, this is a sickness I don't mind having.

Blah! I saw the coolest cammo-hat on Sunday but when I took it to buy it, it turned out it was in small size Damn those youngsters! They're so lucky! Everything fits for them!

Anyways, I just realized that I've gone too far with this U2 and Bono addiction. But also I'm proud to be a psycho

Cheers for us!

LOL Me too!
It gets worse everyday, it wasn't too long ago when I got my first U2 poster. I was sitting in my room, thinking *U2 is such a big part of my life and I've spent so much money on my collection, but you can't tell when you come in here. That's wrong.* So I bought a poster advertising Beautiful Day and hung it up. I could not look at it for 5 days! When I went in my room I'd divert my eyes and not look at the wall at all. *This is way too noticeable!*
But I've come to accept it...

Yah for all U2 Psycho's. Thank god we have found Pleba so we can discuss these things with people who understand!!! My boyfriend told me that I had a problem yesterday, but I think (hope) he was just joking. I think that he is just jealous of Bono.
