U2, U2 everywhere! @ 05:26 pm

I'm currently feelin: giggly giggly
I'm currently hearin: Stay (Live from Toronto)

Welp, I took a trip over the weekend from Tampa to Boston and back, much U2ness around.

I DLed a Popmart boot from the YSI community the night before I left.  Much love to desert_sky who provided my soundtrack for most of the car-riding.  It especially helped me out on my trip to TIA, my dad drives like a maniac! I've had better rides on rollercoasters.  So I closed my eyes and went to Mexico City.

I would've continued listening to it once boarding the plane but.... they were offering Rattle and Hum as an inflight movie!  Delta/Song may be economy class flying, but much love for them!  I own R&H, seen it several times, but I still dished the $5 to watch it while flying.  They were also offering HTDAAB as a music/mp3 selection (free), but I went back to my U2pod after that.

While eating in downtwon Boston, "One" came over the radio, my brother was unimpressed by my rib-nudging and proceeed to slug me in the arm. Owie.

There was a nightclub called "Vertigo" took a picture of their sign. :-) I would throw in a picspam, but I just got back and have yet to develop the photos.

While exiting the plane back in Tampa, the kid sitting across the aisle from me said he "loved the band on my shirt."  He then gave me a look of admiring awe when I told him I was going to the concert in November.  Gotta love 12 year-olds.

LOL the only pic I have to offer you guys is the canopy that reads "Vertigo"

But a lot of my trip will be included in my personal (non-friends-only) journal in a week or so.

I was at the mall with a friend earlier today, and One came on the radio. It took barely three notes for me to point upward at the nearest speaker and go "This is U2!" to which my friend told me I was obsessed XD She was right. And then I had to try really hard not to sing along, and of course, she was looking at me like I was crazy.
Then later her cousin offered to give me a ride home and asked how far I lived from the mall. My response was "The length of one U2 song". It's true though. City Of Blinding Lights to be precise.

On the satellite at work, they play CoBL and Crumbs. People are often unimpressed when I mention it's a U2 song.

Oh well, I just took a picture of their sign. :-P Then I had to run to catch up with my relatives, proceeded to drop my purse, hurdled over it like a true Olympian, and had to run back to get it.

Little known U2/Boston factoid. When they were in town 2001, U2 went to a small Irish bar in South Boston called Baggott Inn – which is the name of a pub they played in Dublin many, many moons ago. The Baggott Inn has since closed, but I sat in every damn seat just to be certain. I heard they also went to the place across the street, The Blackthorn which was my local.
