Awww yeah! What great news to start my Friday. I am so proud of them. =)

(And actually, I usually hate the Grammies and think it's all a bunch of crap, but um, it's a bit different when your favorite band is involved. ;))

Wonder what silly acceptance speeches (oh and you KNOW they'll be taking home some statuettes!!) we'll get this year. Can they top the Orgasmatron??!?!?!

I know, I know, I hate to admit, but I get just a teensy bit embarrassed for them with some of their comments. Except that I totally adore the that little human side of them :)

Yeah, they get up there and I'm always on the edge of my seat, wondering just what they're gonna say this time. *groans* It's usually something I would normally find funny if it was said in an interview or concert, but because they're in front of a larger audience --including people who love to tease me about my obsession-- I always get a little bit more embarassed when Bono....well, is Bono! =D And that Edge is a rascal, too! But I love them both for it.
