U2 in Starbucks @ 12:37 am

neverletmedown:
I'm currently feelin: amused amused

I forgot to mention this, albeit, it's rather trivial.

But U2 fans love trivial U2 information, so here it goes:

About 2 weeks ago I met up with my old manager from when I worked at an internet company. He was the coolest manager to work for because he was a die hard U2 fan and had been following them since he saw them in a local Vancouver club in 1982.

Nevertheless, we decided to meet up at the Starbucks coffee shop at my university campus. As we were chatting, I recogized the music in the background. It was U2.

But not new U2! It was old-school Boy U2! I couldn't believe it! I was not expecting to hear the entire Boy album at Starbucks... home to prefabricated trendy jazz CD's. Instead, I was treated to my favourite band.

They also played the Cure, which also made me very happy. :) Nevertheless, I thought I'd share that trivial U2 moment with you.

Most of the time the employees get to pick what they want to listen to. You have some good employees over there at that Starbucks. :)

I always get excited with unexpected U2. I can't count the times i've smiled and quitely sang along when i here U2 in the background of some store or public place.

By the way...is the person in your icon Mena Suvari? Maybe a model of some sort? American Beauty has got to be one of the greatest movies of all time.

No, no... you're suppose to say, "Have you seen American Pie?"

And I'm supposed to say "No."
