Hi (she said sheepishly)
« on: January 14, 2009, 05:45:02 PM »
(I hate introducing myself to strangers at parties.)

Hi. You can call me Eurydice. I've been a U2 fan since 1982. (Wow, Eurydice you are old.) I'm a high school visual and language arts teacher. I live in the suburbs of a large, Midwestern American city (at least that's how they made me describe my home in my Master's thesis). I've been a regular @U2 reader since 2003. I've been lurking around the forum (laughing to myself and talking back to the computer screen) since early December and decided it was time to actually post something. Unfortunately, I haven't had anything stellar to write since making that decision.

I am looking forward to joining the community. However, I have now given up my dreams of wowing you all with my Wilde-like wit.

Welcome, Eurydice.  I'm another midwestern gal myself.  You don't have to have anything particularly stellar in order to post here.  Some of post even when we have very little to say (myself included!).  "I like the sound of my own voice,"  as Bono says.   :D

Hi Eurydice,
Welcome!! Its about time you joined in the conversations! Its good to have another teacher in the forum - and someone who has been a fan since the early 80's.
Not that I am saying you are old or anything but check out the Old Lady Thread in Real World section! It started out with discussion of the early U2 days and Bono's fantastic mullet!
Enjoy!

Hi eurydice! Welcome. I'm sure you have lots of wonderful things to say. Come talk with all of the above at the Old Lady Thread. It's easy, you say whatever you want there!  I'll be looking for you- SG!

Ooooh, I am heading over to the Old Lady Thread next. I am guessing that would be the best place for my "not only do I remember Bono's mullet, but I remember when The Edge had a full head of hair" comment.

It's not the snow...it's the -21 temperatures that get to me.
