sightings of bono? @ 04:03 pm

like__a_song:
Current Location: pacific palisades, ca
I'm currently feelin: surprised surprised
I'm currently hearin: dying in america - rent soundtrack

So I work in a restaurant called Patricks Roadhouse in Santa Monica, CA. Its full of irish and other european collectings (the only way to describe it) and anyway, its very VERY eclectic.
Anyway, a couple of days ago I had a dream that Bono and the rest of the band came in for breakfast while I was working...needless to say it was one of the better dreams I've had.
This morning I was talking with one of my regular customers about music and how much I love U2 and how brilliant they are. I also happened to mention my dream and how it would totally make my entire life if that actually did happen.
A little while later some customers walk in and I literally died of shock. It wasn't Bono, but a guy who looked EXACTLY like him. He was absolutely hilarious, and I couldnt help but ask him if people told him that he looked like Bono all the time. His first response was "no. never", but it turns out that his name is Pavel and he's actually a Bono impersonator for a living!
He looked, sounded, and acted like Bono. The thought that he was acutally bono and was just pulling my leg crossed my mind, thats how much he resembled him.
how weird is it that I had a dream like that, mentioned it to someone, and then it pretty much comes true?

anyway his website is www.bonodouble.com, you should all check it out.
Has anyone else had  a situation like this?

How strange. If it works out the same way the mini movie 'sightings of Bono' did...you may meet the real thing someday :p

Closest I've gotten to 'Bono' was dancing with the singer of a tribute band lol.

YEAH! haha i think i watched that film the same day that i had that dream. what a strange set of circumstances.
i totally had to do a double take when i saw him. like i glanced at him when he came in and i was like "oh, cool looking rockstar guy, maybe he wont be a boring customer", and then i was like "BONO". it totally played tricks on my mind. it was his birthday too!!

Pavel, like Bono, seems to be everywhere.

My niece and her pals hit up some clubs in Hollywood for her bachlorette party and Pavel was at one of the clubs. They took photos with him. They tried to trick me by stopping by my house at 3am to show off the photos. Even at 3am I could tell he was a fake. ha ha Close, but still a fake.
