Random U2 tidbits:
I have a five year old niece, I'm already trying to educate her in the ways of U2. Alas, unlike myself, she's not a Bono girl. She seems to like The Edge best XD
My father wears safety glasses for work, and he has several pairs. Many of them are very Bono-esque. My niece got a hold of one dark red pair of these glasses, and put them on.
She came running up to me and said "Look! I'm Bono!"
Also, on another occasion, I had my Achtung Baby CD booklet in my hands, and she took it from me and started looking at it. And then she went "Boys aren't supposed to wear dresses!" XD
One evening, after dinner, my mother, sister, and I were all relaxing in the living room. My sister was about to go do laundry, and she had an empty laundry basket in her hands. We were all in quite a silly mood. Bear in mind that we're all adults.
She put the laundry basket upside down on her head. My mother looked at her and made a joke that it was a cage she had to wear to keep her from attacking people (think Hannibal Lector).
So in response to this joke, my sister started running around the room acting like a psycho. She ran to me and said "I'm going to kill Bono and put him in your microwave!"
I dunno, maybe you had to be there, but I ended up literally on the floor laughing.
My day today was spent interestingly enough... I spent the majority of it watching U2 videos, and drooling over the band... with women twice my age. My mother and her friend. It's just a bit disturbing.
And to top it all off... my friend Steven is insane. You see, for the last few years, he's had the nickname and screename "bno". It's his LJ name as well.
Since I've become a Bono fanatic, Steven has been complaining to me (lightheartedly) that Bono stole his name.
When I use logic to explain that Bono has been Bono since the late 70s, Steven insists that Bono travelled forward in time just to steal his name.
It's all rather mad. But I was very amused to see Steven using this LJ icon today:
