I MET BONO AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! </h1>





I went down to GM Place after work originally hoping to listen in on the rehearsals and meet some U2 fans. I'll be honest in saying that as much as I wanted to meet U2, I really went down there to bond with other U2 fan club members, make new friends and be around good people on St. Patrick's Day. Bonding with other U2 fans is a reward in itself. I enjoyed sharing sentimental experiences with others.

I met kaishijinn and we clicked right a the sweetest most sincere U2 fan that I have met so far. Slowly as the day passed, more people came and more stories were shared.

Bono's ride drove out of the venue at around 3ish in a black fancy van with tinted windows. The figure inside looked like Bono but I wasn't sure at first.

Bono initiated the meet and greet by rolling down his window to say hello. The few of us who were waiting politely slowly walked up to the car. He extended his hand to greet us and even though he was in a rush and couldn't stop to sign anything, he made sure that we were "taken care of." I just stood there in shock, confusion and was numb all over.

I did manage somehow, with my hands shaking, to take a picture.
Of course out of politeness and courtesy I asked Bono's permission if I could take his picture for my Livejournal. I'm not one of those pop tart fans that crosses the line. Bono sincerely appreciated the courtesy and waited until the picture was taken before driving off.

I did manage to say "Thank You", the simple words I've been wanting to say for the past 4 years since "All That You Can't Leave Behind."

Later on kaishijinn and I ease dropped on portions of the rehersals.

1. Beautiful Day
2. Mysterious
3. Vertigo with snippets from "Stories for Boys"
4. Bullets

Remember this story

I meet Danielle today. It was so awesome to meet the girl who returned U2's suitcase. I'm scheduled to do an interview with her for my March/April 'zine and clear the stories and the media rumours.

Another treasured memory.

P.S. Good to see them not traveling in a beat up white mini-van.

Haha! I've had 3 dreams like that. Except one was just flashes of random things and I randomly saw Bono and then flashes of different places. That one was wierd.
The other one was I got a private concert by U2. It was the best. All my friends and family were there. It was pretty interesting.
Another one was Bono at a university lecture hall pointing at a man crying because his wife had left him. Yeah my dreams are wierd.

Those are great lol. Mine was I was in some kind of hotel and Bono was appearing there. I was looking out my hotel window and i saw him getting out of his car. I naturally freaked out and got dressed real fast and tried to go down and find him. Then i come back up to my room and hes sitting outside in the hall reading a newspaper with no shoes on. I just casually say hi to him and run in to get something for him to sign then i come back out and hes on the elevator and the doors are closing. I freak out so i got down to the lobby and there are all these escelators and he is singing (don't remember what song) and hes finishing it up and about to leave when i catch him at the door and ask him to sign something for me. He says he has to go and he doesn't have anything to sign and hands me this catalog of some kind (I think it was a guitar catalog).Then I say "well im coming to your show in november so I will give it back to you then." Then he smiled and gave me a hug (a really long one) and he starst talking to me in my ear while he is hugging me(I don't unfortunatly remember what he said). Thats all I remember. Honestly it was probably the best dream of my life. :)

Wow. I love the way you explained that in detail. Too bad you can't remember what he whispered.
