I'm on my LA layover, but my ride/guide for the day disappeared, so today I've travelled, slept, eaten a little, and been in a tired state of dazedness, basically. :) Oh, and I'm watching my first tv in a week--a little Simpsons, Seinfeld, and 360! I don't even know what happened with football yet (oh no!) 'cause Sunday was scuba day (and there was at least one U2/Packers fan going to Duke's to watch the game at 8am so I would've had company if I could've gone!). It was really bizarre when we stopped at a roadside shrimp truck to see Monday Night Football going on on their tv...and it was 4pm.

ANYway, a lot more to update than my thoughts on football on the trip! I'll try to actually get pics to post this time--I usually don't bother since it's $5 extra per roll of film for a cd, but...PICS! I sent out the post cards last night, so lemme know when you get them so I make sure you did--I used S's regular stamps, so I'm hoping the 1-2 I used on the international ones was sufficient.

It was really fun running into U2 fans everywhere...on the plane on the way there (and airport shuttle last night), in the hotel, on the streets, even hiking up Diamond Head! Then, later on a beach at the North Shore, we met the chick Bono pulled up. Haha. I met people from the UK, Germany, Canada, Australia, and all over the US. I met an eccentric woman on the airport shuttle who's engaged to someone named Martin who works for the band. Oh yeah, and I saw a certain drummer in the airport around 9:30 last night, Hawaii time. I didn't do anything but look though--he was holding his kid with both hands and just looked so *happy*, I didn't want to bother him by basically asking him to put the 3-4(?) year old boy down just to sign my boarding pass or take a pic. :/ This chick from our shuttle gave me the head's up that he was right behind her (coming through security--I was standing there waiting for S, who got in a slower line than I did), and then we saw her again and she'd seen *him* again so now I know he took the red-eye to New York last night. Yea for mild stalkage? Haha. Ohhh, tired, will update soon on things.
Now don't inundate me with requests. ;)
