You Know You Are A Crazed U2 Fan When....

Alright I don't know if something like this has been posted up b4 but just go along with this Please. Some of us in the chat were bored and out of no where I start doing the alphabet U2 style! Now You Know You Are A Crazed U2 Fan When..... You can change the entire alphabet to go along with U2 !! like A is for Adam B is for Bono C is for Clayton and so on. Now here I'm wondering...anyone else got something good to add to this ??? What other things give proof that you know you are a crazed U2 fan when....
I know you guys can come up with answers to that... what U2 fan can't LOL ok i'm done.

When in every conversation you have with others you somehow manipulate it to encorporate U2 - even if they aren't U2 fans, and when they already make fun of you for doing it...
Or when your friends refer to you as "super fan"...

It's like lotto - you gotta be in it to win it.

when...

You freak out whenever somebody says "you too!" in conversation.

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

When someone comments that it is a Beautiful Day, you break out into song.

You get upset when someone says Bone-O.

You have a special CD case filled with just U2 CDs.

You get all excited when you turn on the radio and actually hear them in an area that mostly plays country music and Top 40 crap.

And (true story), when someone asks you if you've heard that new U2 song, you think "The Hands that Built America," and get all excited and then come to find out they were talking about "Walk On" and you're like wtf???

When you are talking to your significant other and any of your replies start with:

"...oh - that was like the time I went down early to see the mirrorball lemon..."

"...yeah, I know - that is almost like the scene from Outside it's America where Phil Joaneau yells at the camera man..."

"...yeah - it hurt almost as bad as being pushed up against the barrier in 1992 when the Edge broke into the solo in UTEOTW..."

"...that is so funny - that rhymes exactly with 'we'll shine like stars in the summer night, we'll shine like stars in the winter time..."

And they just look at you with a blank stare, and then simply shake their head back and forth in disapproval...

When you are in a bar with a group of friends, and WOWY starts playing.... everyone at your table starts singing along.... suddenly, you start singing "well shine like stars in the summer night, well shine like stars in the winter night....".... only to open your eyes a second later to realize that all 20 people at your table are staring at you.... then someone looks at you and says.... "dude, I thought that you were a U2 fan, and you don't even know the words"... so you drag them out to your car and find 'that' version of the song so that they know you aren't nutso....

you sell all you material possessions and pilgrimmage to the site of the former Joshua Tree where you dress in sack-cloth and ashes to undergo a 2 week period of lamenting and fasting.

When you make your husband buy you a "special" oak bookcase just for your U2 books, magazines, programs and vinyl records

When you are in a store or restaurant and you go into a trance and no longer hear the salesperson/your sister/your husband/your kids because a U2 song is playing

When you realize your CD case has 87 U2 CDs and 13 "others" which all happen to be U2 related or Irish in some way or another

Like Sicy said, when you own a U2 license plate

When you realize that you have enough U2 t-shirts to wear a different one every day of the week...for 2 weeks

Your husband starts to give you dirty looks everytime he turns on the DVD player because chances are, he will find the Boston DVD inside, still warm from the last time it was played. "Just what do you do while I'm gone all day honey?"

Even though you have all the albums, you still check out the "U2" section at Best Buy...there might be some rare single that you don't have...but there never is..

Charlene...you have 87 U2 CD's? Dang girl...

I have some more........
I am a cashier, and when I have to order change, there's a spot where you put the register number....so when I happen to be on register 2, I put "U2"
Needless to say, they know who ordered the change...

"Cleaning your room" means removing the U2 items from the bookshelf and dusting the bookshelf-just the bookshelf, not the actual room that needs cleaning, or the rug that needs vacuuming.....just the U2 stuff, cause you have to keep it all in good condition.

Having a near heartattack when you go to play the Boston DVD and it skips *gasp*

But it only turns out to be a bit of dust on the disc and not an actual scratch

*phew*

Wait, you have only ONE???

How about...when you and a friend exchange valentines, you exchange U2 valentines.

Whenever you give a gift to someone who's a U2 fan, you include a U2 postcard, written as if it were from a member of the band.
