I'm currently feelin: amused amused
I'm currently hearin: "Walk On (Single Version)" - U2

I just thought this was too funny. It's from the article on Bono I was reading in Time magazine:

"At 1:30 AM, exactly five hours after his bravura Super Bowl show Bono is exercising the rock star's fundamental right to be ridiculous. At a celebratory post-game dinner in the French Quarter with his band mates, the U2 management team and actress Ashley Judd (an old friend), he throws back some red wine, tells a few stories about Frank Sinatra, leaves a rambling cell-phone message for Judd's husband gently informing him that his wife has been kidnapped by a rock band, and then sneaks off to the bathroom for a cigarette. (Bono thinks the rest of U2 doesn't know he smokes; they know.) After 15 minutes, guitarist the Edge, who adopts a kind, paternalistic role toward his childhood friend and band mate, glances toward the bathroom and says nervously, "Bono's allergic to red wine." Sure enough, Bono has passed out on the bathroom floor. U2's deputy manager, Sheila Roche, is unconcerned and continues sipping her drink. "He's probably just taking a nap. He's an excellent napper," she says.
A few minutes later, Bono emerges rumpled but renewed. As he exits the restaurant and makes his way through the mob on Bourbon Street, he throws his hands in the air and screams to no one in particular, 'No, I will not do the snake dance for you!'"

Yeah I would have fallen over, he would have picked me hope (in my dreams anyway) and then I'd offer him the money, hee hee! Oy, he's my mother's age (I'm 22) but I don't care dammit ;-p!

Ahh, I know how you feel.. He's liiiike 3 years younger than my mom I think. It's ... weird feeling. Heh, but I can't help it! And worse yet, in the article about him in 'Time' it showed a CLOSE-up of his face and I think I saw a gray hair! :( Oh well, he is a beautiful man and I'll keep on thinking that until I'm some crazed old lady in a nursing home somewhere, mummering "Bono, Bono" to myself. ;)

LOL! There were several strands of gray hair, dear. Didn't take away from his natural beauty though ;-).
