I dug out my boots, dug out my old U F t-shirt (it doesn't fit any more, but I have other U2 shirts to pick from), bought my ticket to Chicago, booked the hotel, been listening to NLOTH every day this week, and have written myself several notes to remind myself NOT to forget the tickets with my suitcase!

Oh I'm glad I'm not the only one!  Packing is hell!  warmish in the day 24C/ 74F predicted for Sat so far with lows of 14C/ 63F  - Tropical T-storms or cold rains & cool nights...  :P  ACK!

I'm applying for my US entry visa thing.

I'm considering botox and plastic surgery so i fit in in LA

I'm looking up 'tipping' in the dictionary

I'm eating only really crap food in HUGE servings

I'm taking the beer that I drink, tipping out half of it, and filling the rest up with water

I'm leaving the 'u' out of words like 'colour', and 'honour'

I'm driving through Melbourne on the right hand side of the road

I'm only paying half the quoted price for petrol when I fill up my car. And then complaining HEAPS

I'm wearing loads of baseball caps and training jackets.

I've changed my name to Chuck and my wife's name to Heather

When I go out, I ask for a LOT of directions from strangers, and then tell them they're wrong

I'm constantly on Orange Alert

I add strange orange colored (see? no 'u') cheese to every single thing I eat

I've given up trying to understand 'irony'

But most of all I've just started calling the time I'll be heading over there 'Fall'.

Hope you're pumping the gas into an SUV!! And the yellow cheese is called "American" cheese. Although a lot of Americans don't care for it either. but those that do enjoy it in hugeg servings...as you already pointed out.

I made my AASK mask yesterday.

I emailed a good list to the rest of my posse about what to bring/do/expect. - now that I found the "joe's GA list" on u2.com, I'll forward them that link too.

READ READ READ whatever forums my google searches return tracking the GA line chatter.

reformatted my camera's memory cards, and recharged my camera batteries (twice).

picked out an easy-to-sign, easy to carry, U2 item and bought new sharpies for any possible meetings.

told my daughter to make sure she had her homework lined up for being gone Friday.

check my email hourly to see if my two extra reserved tix have sold on stubhub yet (not yet).

make U2 lyric references on all recent FB status updates.

listen to every U2 live audio recordings I have - in chronological order (I'm up to Rattle & Hum) - if I have time, I'll watch the DVDs too.

keep thinking that I have LOTS more to do.


-- Let me in the sound!

Every day since yesterday I'm changing my profile pic in FB to a U2 album cover. Starting with Boy, right until the 24th.

That's right... American cheese! From the latin for 'plastic'

Hey! Leaving out the U is cool!  :D (I usually like the non-American spellings of words better actually)

Dunno if you have to be a U2.com member or not to get to this link...

If you've done GA lines before, it's not a lot of new news but he has added a little bit about 360 - only it's Europe experiences, NOT north america....



See you in the queue!
