25+ in age? Come Talk to Me.....

So... do you find yourself going backwards in life? Reliving your youth? Becoming that teen again? (ok, let's not get crazy here, but I think you know what I mean...)

Here I am, having just turned 27, and I am acting like the kid I wanted to be back in highschool. Going to rock shows all the time, following my favourite band around the world. I am even putting bloody posters on my walls! Buttons on my bags! My wardrobe has become one big ad to the band and soon... a tattoo will grace my body embelishing my love for U2! (Sicy's the girl!)

So talk to me, tell me your stories. TELL me I am not alone. I want it all! Bootlegs, singles, stickers, flags, emblems, patches, pins, photos, official, and non-official. Give me U2 merchandise!

B R I N G I T O N!!!!!!!!!!!

_______________

*Pls note, in no way am I a fanatical lunatic, as this post comes in jest in hopes of simply bringing one, maybe two smiles to the faces of interference...... oh! & to make me NOT feel like a fanatic! lol*

I recently went to 4 shows in 6 days...I didn't even do that in my younger days...following the band from Oakland to Las Vegas meeting the coolest fans from around the world...and yes, my need for everything U2 still going strong...oh, and I'm 38 by the way! Your only as young as you feel, and I'm feeling good!

Chris

Angel, I'm sorry I missed you in Vegas, I was so looking forward to meeting you as well.

I have a silk flag up from the Unforgettable Fire era in my spare bedroom, as well as a poster with all the bands albums on it. That is it for posters, but have tons of magazine, tour books except for the War tour, as well as books, cds, and tons of albums and singles...lots of collectables from 21 years of being a fan.

Chris

Damn, did I miss the tattoo session in Vegas?? Why didn't someone call me?

Oh well, maybe I'll get my belly button pierced in Miami. But no, I'm not acting like a teenager.

Talk about acting WAY younger than my age, I'll be in Dallas on Sunday and maybe Miami next weekend! But I have sisters in both cities that I'll be visiting and staying with, at least that's the story I'm telling my family.

I do know EXACTLY how you feel Angel...I'm just a couple of months shy of being 27 and I feel like I'm at my most "obsessed" U2-wise in about 10 years....

But I don't think it's me trying to re-live my youth to be honest...I think it's because this recent cd, tour, etc resonates a lot more with me than a lot of their 90's stuff (don't kill me anyone!). They make me feel the way I did when I was 12 all the way through to 18 or so...

It's wonderful to recapture these feelings!

And splendid to follow them around! (I didn't do that when I was younger but only because I couldn't afford it!....er, not that I really can now! lol! )

I'm 34 now, but ever since I turned 30 or so, I've been a sticki-in-the-mud, whioch is the exact opposite of how I was in my earlty 20s and teens. I don't go to rock concerts anymore, and hardly ever even go to movies, cuz I think Hollywood over-rates themselves.

A week away from 36 and I'm always trying to reach my inner child. It helps me deal with my 3 kids!!! Except now I'm turning all three into U2 fanatics!!! Just like Mom, when she loved the Beatles!!! I was lucky to get to two shows this tour, one before and one after. But I don't think I'll go with the tattoo. My collection is pretty slim, just CDs, tapes and books with a couple of old AB era Propagandas. I may actually have a poster stuck in the back of my closet. I've put together a decent video snippet tape. My husband thinks I'm definitely getting worse!!! But one can dream!

Amen!

7 shows in six months, including a hop across the Atlantic. But most of the time, I'm a mild-mannered mom of 2 driving a minivan to the Parents meeting. (with a U2 boot in the CD changer) But I think what's SO important is to keep a bit of yourself going - so yes, I have always been this way and am blessed with an understanding and supportive husband!

I don't think I'm reliving my youth... I'm just still having fun after all these years.... ehhhhhhhh

(someone hand me my walker)

U2 makes me feel alive. It has been a hell of a madness, sometimes some stress, during all these years, but I don´t complain.
Crzy, you´re lucky to have a husband like that.
Angel, my posters are now on my daughter´s bedroom, LOL
