Bono is coming!!!

Bono is coming to my school December 4th!! This is pretty big news since we're just a little (2400 students) liberal arts college in Wheaton, IL. Needless to say, I'm pretty pumped!!!

Wow. That would be, uh, Wheaton College? Is this publicly announced anywhere?

FUCKIN HELL!!! ARE YOU SERIOUS??? Man, my girlfriend's brother goes to college at Wheaton College, and we're all going up there on December 6th! Shit.........I wonder if pursuading them to go up 2 days earlier would be hard? Probably, considering they all have jobs. But this would probably be the best opportunity to meet Bono I'll ever get!!!! I must drive to Wheaton on the 4th, and meet my girlfriend and her family up there on the 6th. Problem #2: December 4th is my girlfriend's birthday, and I'll be dead if I miss it.....maybe all these conflicting circumstances is God's way of telling me that I'm not supposed to meet Bono. Shit!

Don't know if he's going anywhere else in Ohio, but for those who live here in Iowa, at www.atu2.com they have a news thing saying that Bono's coming to the Iowa Memorial Union in Iowa City a week from Monday.

I have a teacher that takes groups of Challenge kids (and kids that aren't in Challenge but still have an interest in certain things) to various things around the state, I wonder if she knows about this...and if she'd be willing to go (I'm sure she would)...and if I could go along with her...yeah...

*Note to self, mention this to said teacher on Monday when I get to school

They're allowing 1300 tickets (free!!!) for students -- all you need is a student I.D. Our chapel seats maybe 2500, so I'm not entirely sure who the other tickets are for. My sister's roommate, who doesn't go to Wheaton, tried to get tickets. She was told that she'd basically need to buy one off a wheaton student.
Apparently, he's going to sing (!!!!) too with a gospel choir that's coming with him. Ashley Judd (who, sadly, will be ridiculouly overshadowed by a rock legend) will also be there in support of the DATA tour. But here's the best part . . . this is an exerpt from the flier I recieved in the mail from College Union today:

"College Union is seeking interested students to prepare dinner for Bono at 5:00 on the 4th. If you would like to be considered, please submit a proposed meal plan (being sensitive to Bono's vegaterian preferences) along with a one-paragraph summary of why you should be selected for this honor . . ."

Talk about not believing the news today!!

I know Larry's a vegetarian, but I've never heard Bono being one. I'm not complaining -- I'd love it if he were However, if he really IS a vegetarian, I'd guess he just started recently because there are many chapters in Flanagan's book that mention what Bono is eating -- which happens to be meat most of the time, plus I have also seen several Elevation era articles which mention what he is having for lunch, which is, again, something with meat.

Yes, I'm a loser.

There were 4 tickets available yesterday at 11 am.

However, like I said above, check datadata.org -- they added a new one for Waterloo, and more dates for other states. Tickets aren't on sale yet, nor anything but the day is set, so don't worry.
