Hello Hello!!

Amusing thoughts.... @ 01:58 am

angelkitten13:
I'm currently feelin: geeky
I'm currently hearin: U2: Electrical Storm

I was poking through some old email and I found this:

It is, of course, U2-centric....

Please answer the following questions YES or NO.

1. Have you stayed awake for 4 days waiting for the new U2 video, even though you knew the exact time it would premiere?

2. Have you ever seen The Fly in your soup?

3. Do people come to you for guidence when they are ready to cross over to U2 worship?

4. Do you know what time it is in Ireland, RIGHT NOW? (If you are in Ireland now, replace with Utah for no apparent reason.)

5. Have you ever dressed up your silverware like Adam?

6. Have you ever made U2 snow men? (complete with fro wigs and bug glasses?)

7. Do you wish you were one of Bono's freckles?

8. Have you ever wanted to buy U2 sunscreen?

9. Do you have a U2 fan page?

10. Do you fantasize about Bono in terry cloth?

11. Have you ever moulded your mashed potatoes into one of Adam's doos? (or into the shape of Bono's nose?)

12. Did you ever see a conga drum and quote Larry: "a conga, my very own conga!"

13. Have you ever had to be restrained because you thought the sound of the bus going over some railroad tracks was Edge warming up?

14. If you can somehow relate olives to U2, answer yes to this question.

15. Have you written letters to Larry's Dog?

16. Can you dance like Bono?

17. Do you like peppermint?

18. Do you despise that woman who tucks in Bono's shirt backstage?

19. Do you want to know desperately how she got that job? (see question #18)

20. Do you keep a potato chip under glass because you think it looks like Edge?

21. Do you have a collection of tree branches you plan to whittle into drum
sticks Larry might like?

22. Do you undergo a practice regiment in which you seek to growl like Bono?

23. Would you wear someone else's used socks to get to meet Edge's housekeeper?

24. Would you chew someone else's gum? Lick their toothbrush? (see question #23)

25. Have you filled your wardrobe with sequined suits and platform shoes?

Granted, I'm not real clear on some of this. Like: Do you like peppermint? OR How to relate olives to U2...but the rest of it is hilarious!

Thanks. :-)

I have to admit I found it rather puzzling.

1. Have you stayed awake for 4 days waiting for the new U2 video, even though you knew the exact time it would premiere?: No, but I'd set three alarm clocks to make sure I wouldn't oversleep and miss it...

2. Have you ever seen The Fly in your soup?: No, but the day I decided to become a U2 fan, one of my friends found a fly in her ice cube at Burger King. *g*

3. Do people come to you for guidance when they are ready to cross over to U2 worship?: Of course.

4. Do you know what time it is in Ireland, RIGHT NOW?: I'm not sure if they're in a different time zone or not. I don't think so, though. So it's probably about 4:45.

5. Have you ever dressed up your silverware like Adam?: Uh, no.

6. Have you ever made U2 snow men? (complete with fro wigs and bug glasses?): Like we'd ever be lucky enough to have that much snow!!

7. Do you wish you were one of Bono's freckles?: No...

8. Have you ever wanted to buy U2 sunscreen?: It's never occurred to me that such a product could exist.

9. Do you have a U2 fan page?: A few.

10. Do you fantasize about Bono in terry cloth?: Nope...

11. Have you ever moulded your mashed potatoes into one of Adam's doos? (or into the shape of Bono's nose?): Er, no. Backing slowly away from the computer now!

12. Did you ever see a conga drum and quote Larry: "a conga, my very own conga!": I probably have done at some point.

13. Have you ever had to be restrained because you thought the sound of the bus going over some railroad tracks was Edge warming up?: Um... no...

14. If you can somehow relate olives to U2, answer yes to this question: Yes - that's an easy one!

15. Have you written letters to Larry's Dog?: Isn't Larry's dog deceased?

16. Can you dance like Bono?: Believe me I try. *g*

17. Do you like peppermint?: I'm not a huge mint fan... and I'm stumped as to how this one relates to U2!

18. Do you despise that woman who tucks in Bono's shirt backstage?: No. But the Love Is Blindness girl from Adelaide needs her arms chopping off.

19. Do you want to know desperately how she got that job? (see question #18): *shrug*

20. Do you keep a potato chip under glass because you think it looks like Edge?: No.

21. Do you have a collection of tree branches you plan to whittle into drum
sticks Larry might like?:
Should I be feeling like a bad fan by this point?

22. Do you undergo a practice regiment in which you seek to growl like Bono?: Growling convincingly like Bono is one of my goals in life.

23. Would you wear someone else's used socks to get to meet Edge's housekeeper?: I wouldn't wear my *own* socks for that. Now, for a genuine band member, I might be willing to negotiate.

24. Would you chew someone else's gum? Lick their toothbrush? (see question #23): Vile!

25. Have you filled your wardrobe with sequined suits and platform shoes?: Haha.... I can honestly answer yes to this one!  I spent hours glittering those shoes....

Someone help me! Though I've had U2 cd's, etc for as long as I can remember, I am new to a lot of the rest of the media around them, and I don't get a lot of these references! (We didn't have cable for a looong time) Or perhaps I've just forgotten...

Someone want to explain:
5. Have you ever dressed up your silverware like Adam?
8. Have you ever wanted to buy U2 sunscreen?
20. Do you keep a potato chip under glass because you think it looks like Edge?
21. Do you have a collection of tree branches you plan to whittle into drum sticks Larry might like?
23. Would you wear someone else's used socks to get to meet Edge's housekeeper?
24. Would you chew someone else's gum? Lick their toothbrush? (see question #23)

Help me get the in jokes? Please?

I believe the silverware question is a reference to Adam's spoon collection (see the U2 episode of The Simpsons!). No idea what the sunscreen thing is all about. I think the other questions are just asking how obsessive you are about the band... i.e. do you see their faces in inanimate objects, and would you do gross things just for a chance to meet someone who knows them!

I love the episode of the Simpsons where U2 guest stared. It was so hilarious. Larry's like, "Hey Edge. Want to go drink a pint at Moe's." And the the Edge is like, "Sure." and then Adam's like "Can I come too?" And they both say "No". It was overly hilarious.

Re: amusing thoughts

(Link)
Have you stayed awake for 4 days waiting for the new U2 video, even though you knew the exact time it would premiere?

*Yes. And then stayed up another 4 so I could catch it on again.

Have you ever seen The Fly in your soup?

*Of course.. It's odd. My alphabet soup keeps spelling out various lines from Achtung Baby songs.

Do people come to you for guidence when they are ready to cross over to U2 worship?

*Yes, and I tell them to follow the Ultra Violet light at the end of the tunnel.

Do you know what time it is in Ireland, RIGHT NOW? (If you are in Ireland now, replace with Utah for no apparent reason.)

*Yes. I have kept track of this for many years... they're 6 hours ahead of where I am. I actually have imagined Bono, say, getting his kids ready for school when I'm just going to bed.

Have you ever dressed up your silverware like Adam?

*I have a full place setting of the band.. Bono is my fork. Adam is my spoon. Edge is my knife. And Larry, well... he's the napkin.

Have you ever made U2 snow men? (complete with fro wigs and bug glasses?)

*Complete with drum stick shaped twigs, 2 broom guitars, and some sort of odd lumpy thing I found in the grass for Bono's mic..

Do you wish you were one of Bono's freckles?

*That'd do. But I'd much more prefer to be Larry's wart..

Have you ever wanted to buy U2 sunscreen?

:o IS there such a thing?? Oh damn, I'd even wear it at night. Along with my Fly glasses. Because I wear my sunglasses at night. So I can, so I can... uh never mind...

Do you have a U2 fan page?

*Actually, seriously I do. Complete with an opinion section of each song, album, and video. A memory book of the concerts.

Do you fantasize about Bono in terry cloth?

*Bono wouldn't be caught dead in terry cloth. It's obvious the man is much more fond of cheesy, flashy polyester outfits made by Saturn's finest designer.

Have you ever moulded your mashed potatoes into one of Adam's doos? (or into the shape of Bono's nose?)

*I once sculpted the entire PopMart set out of meatloaf...

Did you ever see a conga drum and quote Larry: "a conga, my very own conga!"

*Yes.. it's really embarassing to have the music store employees come over & start to try to tell you all about congas..

Have you ever had to be restrained because you thought the sound of the bus going over some railroad tracks was Edge warming up?

*Hell, that's nothing. Every time I hear glass break, I think of I Will Follow. When I see a lemon in the grocery store, I cannot resist pronouncing it "Lemowwn".

If you can somehow relate olives to U2, answer yes to this question.

*YES! Giant olive on the set of the PopMart tour! Hello, hello..?

Have you written letters to Larry's Dog?

*No. But Edge's spotted owl is my best pen pal.

Can you dance like Bono?

*YEA, and I even want to learn to River Dance. Just because it's Irish.

Do you like peppermint?

*In every fashion & form.

Do you despise that woman who tucks in Bono's shirt backstage?

*What the hell?! Who is she anyway? You noticed it doesn't seem like she's really enjoying herself?

Do you want to know desperately how she got that job?

*Now that you mention it.. I wonder how much she gets paid? WHY would they pay her to do that, when there are millions of us who'd do it for free.

Do you keep a potato chip under glass because you think it looks like Edge?

*I once had an entire potato shaped like Mr. McFisto's head.

Do you have a collection of tree branches you plan to whittle into drum
sticks Larry might like?

*What a marvelous idea! & I'll melt down some of my daughter's plastic toys to fashion into guitar picks for Edge!! Wonder if he would like Barney colored ones?

Do you undergo a practice regiment in which you seek to growl like Bono?

*This is a task that I have mastered. I am in touch with my Inner Bono.

Would you wear someone else's used socks to get to meet Edge's housekeeper?

*I'd wear their underwear too if that's what it took.

Would you chew someone else's gum? Lick their toothbrush?

*Yes.

Have you filled your wardrobe with sequined suits and platform shoes?

*ok. No sequined suits or platform shoes. But I certaintly do not object to the possibility.
