My Backwork

(no subject)

Anyone feel like making a new icon for the community? I am so tired of the boring one I put up when I first started this community. It is very very blah.

If anyone wants to be creative that would be very cool! Just post a reply here and if there is more than one icon made I will set up a poll and everyone can vote on which one to use, how does that sound?

Thank you in advance to anyone who might do this!

the U2 road trip.

i recently got back from my vacation... this year, my friend and i took a road trip across the country. our first real stop was at the rock and roll hall of fame. we drove from san diego, california to cleveland, ohio to see the U2 exhibit. it was one of the best things i've ever done.
i took a few pictures in the atrium of the museum, as that was the only place that one was allowed to take pictures.

we continued onto louisville, where i got some tattoos to commemorate the trip

after louisville, we went to memphis, which also was home to some U2 lore.

at the rock and roll hall of fame, at the end of the exhibit, there was a book for people to write comments in. we found one from two ladies who had also made the trek from san diego to cleveland just to see the U2 exhibit. i need to find these people and hang out with them; hardly anyone i know is as into U2 as i am. ok, no one i know is as into U2 as i am. not even anything close.

if you want to read about the rest of the trip, go check out my livejournal.

hope you enjoyed the pictures.

great b-day present lol

ok so my little sister had THE FUNNIEST idea for my birthday present :) I loved it - it was great lol! So I open the present she gives me with my mom sitting there saying 'yeah you'll never guess in a thousand years.' She was so right. My sister - she's 13 and was gifted with all the creativity that seemed to skip over me - went out and bought a ken doll and a concert outfit from toys r us. She dressed him up in this outfit(with a red leather jacket that I thought was really uncannily appropriate), wrote U2 and Bono on the shirt in Sharpie, and she even bought a pair of bluish glasses and colored the lenses in a bit! Then she put him back in the box and coverd the outside of the box - except for the plastic display area - in pictures of U2 from the internet. There are a few along the inside back of the box, too. She wrote Bono over every place where it said Ken, and she wrote the rest of our boys' names where it had stuff like matel and whatnot. It was GREAT i just about died when I pulled it out of the bag :)
