Now, a short(er) one

It's because I'm hella tired. School, plus the inability to sleep at night does that to you. It's not fun.

What was fun was U2...I know I promised a full review, but I just don't have the strength right now. Went with Marty Boy and his lady friend, plus Blondie...who gave me the "I'm starting to think of you as more of a friend speech". Yikes. I knew it was coming. I do not feel that way. She's a sweet girl, but a touch too immature and rather needy...So it was a 'no' from me. Hopefully we can still be friends. Back to the show, it was super-fun (aside from the $12.50 beers and the $45 t-shirt). The ACC was packed of course and it was just a great atmosphere. There really were a lot of highlights, I'll just think of a few that stick out...the opening of 'City of Blinding Lights' was uber-cool, with all the neat-o effects and such, plus it's my favourite song off the new album...'Electric CO.' from way back off their first album, I never expected to hear that...'Love and Peace or Else' also from the new album works MUCH better live than in studio...The trio of 'Pride', 'Where the Streets...' and 'One' to end the main set had everyone singing along of course, these songs are classics. Towards the end of 'One' they went into (of all things) 'Ol Man River' (!!!) and were joined onstage by Eddie Vedder...very cool. '40' ended the show, with the band leaving the stage in turn until only Larry was left on drums....perfect way to end it. Again, a super time. Dang, that was fairly thorough....oh well.

What else...it's Heavy D's birthday today...a very happy one out to him. He's joined the quarter century club...scary, huh? The cute girl in my film class I was going to try and talk to already made another friend, seconds before I was about to start talking to her during a smoke break...that sort of bummed me out. Plus, she's not in either of my tutorials. The world is against me. I'll see what happens there. Hopefully I can work things out to visit girl who lives very far away. Man, I need something to work out in my favour. That's it for now. I'm drifting...later folks.

I'm confused, You want something to work in your favour, and something did, but you turned it down. What's wrong with making something more out of a friendship? Lot's of people have done it, maybe she's the girl of your dreams, but you just need to give her a chance.

I really don't feel that way about her, at all. I did give it a bit of thought...but it's not right. She really is a sweet person, but rather immature at times and quite needy (that's a lot coming from me). Again, I REALLY do not see her as more of a friend. Plus, I just don't have a strong attraction. Just how I feel.

Glad you had a good time at the U2 show, Mike. I too thought 'City of Blinding Lights' was off the chart. And the performance of 'Discotheque' was so good that when I got home I listened to Pop all the way through.
