I FOUND WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR!!!!! I GOT MY SHIRT!!!

 Seriously, I didn't feel like I could leave the house feeling like I had everything without my 360 shirt! So, we've relocated across the state for the time being but the fire is getting closer. It's hard to get any info. We're just waiting ...

But you know you're an obsessed fan when you're house could be in danger of burning, and you hear Streets in a store ... and still find yourself singing and dancing along!! Keep praying for us ...

Thank goodness that you found the shirt and you are safe!!! I hope your home is safe and everything is good for you.

I second Jen's statement, busymom.

When you're in a shoe store, EBTTRT comes on and you notice everyone starts dancing around while trying on shoes.

Noticed this too in an ice cream shop when WOWY came on, everyone quieted down and started singing along.
That is so awesome, Jen

YKYOW the only thing that stopped you from ending it all a couple of years ago was U2's music...
Don't worry I'm in a much better place now  :)

Wow DanitheU2fan, that really deserves a whole thread unto itself! Thank goodness you're ok. They really get us through, don't they?

OK, I got one for you:

YKYOW you're going to be interviewed by the newspaper after being evacuated and know exactly what you want to say: "This is really going to be an unforgettable fire, but it's alright. It's alright... A house doesn't make a home ... We can begin again ... "

Of course, by the time they actually called me ... I forgot my wonderful lines!
Still waiting and praying.

Just checked in here and saw that you are still not back home. Have you been in touch w/ your neighbors? Hope everyone is doing as well as can be and that the fires stay away.

. . . when you are go in for surgery and to pass the time all you (even in your unconscious state) and your friends keep making U2 puns to each other and the oblivious hospital staff. Example. . . the nurse comes in and asks is you are sleeping and your friends answers, "She's wide awake, she's not sleeping, No, no, no. . . "

They were actually driving me crazy because I was just drugged enough to get the references but too woozey from meds to keep up.

That is just too good!

 YKYOW you're drugged up and you can still catch U2 references without thinking!

That's really funny, Sama!

YKYOW... well, I know EVERYONE in this thread has done this before, but when you hear the faint sound of Beautiful Day playing in a store, drop everything, and run to a speaker to stand under and listen, playing air guitar and mouthing along and not caring what people think. :D I'm surprised I never see other people doing stuff like that...
