You spend many a Sunday midmorning meeting with your other crazy local fans at an Irish pub.

You celebrate U2 holidays like "Bono's Birthday!" at pubs with said fans.

(This week), friends and coworkers say "Hey, guess where BONO is right now?" and you reply, "He's travelling throughout Africa with Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill to take a look at how foreign aid is being used and how it can be used in the future. Yesterday they were in Ghana and they will be going to South Africa today...." *watch their eyes widen and then glaze over*

You consider decking a friend who just called U2's last album "Beautiful Day."

You consider kissing the same friend because he owns Zooropa and POP and loves them both!

-When the most unexpected people come to you and ask: So YOU are the U2 fan?, and wander around your cubicle and see all your pics on a board and your PC wallpaper with a delicious pic of Bono *sigh*

-When everybody you know comes and says:

1Hey! I just saw Bono on the news!
2Guess what? I DREAMT of you and U2
3Did you hear U2 an hour ago on the radio? They played that song you love, what is it called? I can't live with or without you?
4-I saw a U2 poster on a store yesterday...
5-I didn't knew U2 had a song in Tomb Raider
6- That Edge guy seems so cool (My sis)
7- Don't you like that guy? He has Bono's nose! (My mom lol )
And the most touching thing:
8- Ana, let's watch Rattle and Hum! (My cousin) *sniff*

a lot of the above reasons plus...

you camp outside the arena all night to get in the heart (I've never camped outside for ANY concert), or wait outside the arena for hours trying to meet the band

your non-U2 friends call Bono Bone-o just because they know you'll get mad

Like Jem, doing the alphabet, a friend of mine and I did a sort of "word association" thing with U2 song titles...we've done this in chat before to...for instance, somehow we were talking about beans, and started coming up with U2 song titles like...Even Better than the Bean thing, With or Without Beans, Beautiful Bean, Where the Beans Have No Name...etc.

u know when...
your 84 year old dad writes on your b'day card.." IOU one ticket to see U2 when they come to Australia"
What an old groover.
or... a friend sees you a block away in town and runs, not walks and you think ,shessh what's the emergency?And she hands you a picture of Bono the size of a postage stamp, that she cut out of the paper a month ago and kept for you, 'cause she thought you'd like it!!

BEANS!! i seem to recall a funnier substitute word than that. I recall all manner of things being Thrown Thru a Window. LMAO. And the shopping lists..

Many people know you as, "that U2 fan."

When you agree to go to a show with 4 "perfect strangers"...Hey, the show was U2 at FarmClub and the perfect strangers were pretty normal U2fanatics.

Good God, I called him that when I wasn't really a fan yet.
*hides*

You also know you're a crazed U2 fan when friends and family purposely don't talk about the band for fear that you would ramble. Their famous line to me is, "There she goes again...", matched with a groan.

When offhand remarks people make that are not in reference to U2 remind you of the band. The other day two of my co-workers were having a conversation and I wasn't really listening because I was focusing on my work when something one of them said suddenly caught my attention: "Well, some days are better than others." Sure enough, I started hearing the song "Some Days Are Better Than Others" in my head.

you know it's out of hand when your coworkers sneak into your office during the night to leave U2 jokes/gifts:

-frequently my wallpaper has been changed to some U2/bono insult. just to get a rise out of me.

-speech bubbles taped to the guys on my U2 calendar.

-a picture of bono taped around my pen, so now i carry my bono pen everywhere.

-phone messages left from bono ("stop calling me, i'm serious this time. i'm getting a restraining order!") i love my job!

peace, lynn

When you make up actions to go along with the songs. My friends in a band were coming back from a tour and to pass the time began doing near-choreographed actions to U2 tunes. The worst was a hand-clapping/pointing thing for Two Hearts Beat As One.
