Good week

I met Nina on Tuesday!

She's in town on a family trip, and took some time out to meet up with me for some yummy pasta, local wine, decadent chocolate cake, a jazz band playing just for us, and a really fun conversation! As I know I've said before, meeting a blogger is like a first date with an old friend - you know some of their stories and personality, but have to ask basic questions like "so what exactly do you do?"! Anyway, I hope I've inspired Nina to meet up with some more bloggers who live just a leeeeetle bit closer to Freiburg!

And then, on Wednesday...

What's this?

It's part of a mega-cool stage set that barely fit into BC Place, that's what it is:

But who's it for?


I've seen them before, and was very happy to see them again! I agree with some of the local reviews I've read; while I do like the new album (MUCH more than the one before), I would have liked to hear more of their classics. But they have such an immense repertoire that they're never going to be able to play everyone's favourite songs, and all in all it was a great show. I would post my videos, but the camera is blatantly moving to the music in a rather embarrassing manner.

Hallowe'en party at the weekend! w00t!


  1. ooooh, I saw U2 at Valle Hovin in Oslo in 1993 and 1997. Freaking awesome. Bono was still hot back then. Not so sure about that anymore, but I could probably change my mind.

  2. So jealous! I got to see them at Madison Square Gardens in 2005 - an amazing experience. I'd love to see them again.

  3. Good times! They always put on such a great show. I couldn't get tickets for their last tour, but that's OK, I didn't really like that album ;)

  4. p.s. I've never really found Bono to be hot. However, The Edge is one of the coolest people on the planet. He rocks!

  5. I found the most difficult bit of meeting another blogger, was finding him in the pub!

  6. I would LOVE to see U2 in concert! I don't find any of them "hot", actually, but they're frigging cool =)

  7. UHDD, that made me smile! Luckily, both Nina and I have published photos of ourselves on our blogs. In the past, I've been easy enough to spot as I'm the one with the panniers and bike helmet on the table!

    Bean-Mom, I heard they just announced new tour dates!
