This is Charley. He's a dog from the North Shore Animal League and I'm going to be sponsoring him! It's a good deal for me, since I couldn't deal with having my own pet, but I still get to do something for animal who really needs help. Charlie has a disease that wastes away young puppies. According to NSAL, he has paralysis of the backlegs, but that doesn't stop his tail from always wagging. Isn't he cute!!!! You can find out more about NSAL or make a donation or sponsor a cat or dog at www.nsalamerica.org Posted by Hello

Your at a place called Vertigo - that's how I felt climbing up to our seats at Continental Arena. But the view was pretty good!

I had taken Tuesday off just to kill some vacation time. I had been fighting with my evil computer all day. Then my sister called me after she got home from work - someone at school sold her 2 ticket to see U2, and she wanted me to come with her!!!!

U2 is one of my favorite bands in the world. I got to see them in 2001 and I wanted to just cry the whole time I was there!

Tonight's show was so good too. They did a lot of songs from their new album and some classics too. A good mix. They played one of my favorites - Running to Stay Still from Joshua tree. Bono played the guitar on it.

Funny (also annoying) thing was there was a guy who was drunk and stoned out of his mind sitting in front of us. He tried to kiss the woman who was with him and they both crashed on the floor. It was a riot. He also bumped into everyone around him and I'm surprised no one punched him.

I just can't believe I happened to have the day off. When I was in college, I was supposed to see the PopMart tour. I had a ticket to see them on my 21st birthday. But I couldn't go because I had gotten a job in Houston. So it's kind of made up for that disappointment!

Here's the set list. They did 2 encores!!!

City Of Blinding Lights, Vertigo, Elevation, The Cry, The Electric Co. / Bullet With Butterfly Wings (snippet) / I Can See For Miles (snippet), An Cat Dubh, Into The Heart, Beautiful Day / Blackbird (snippet), Miracle Drug, Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own / No Regrets (snippet), Love And Peace Or Else, Sunday Bloody Sunday, Bullet The Blue Sky / The Hands That Built America (snippet) / When Johnny Comes Marching Home (snippet) / Please (snippet), Running To Stand Still, Pride (In The Name Of Love), Where The Streets Have No Name, One
encores: Zoo Station, The Fly, Mysterious Ways, Original Of The Species, All Because Of You, Yahweh, 40, Vertigo

** I think I've posted this one before - but I just LOVE Bono!!! Posted by Hello

I finished my last layout for my circle journal group today! And I used lots of postcards for this one. Rachel's theme was ten favorite things so I scrapped about my favorite bands. Posted by Hello
