I get to see Bono of U2 tonight!!!!!! He is being awarded the Liberty Medal at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia and I got tickets!! Doing so involved my becoming a member of the Constitution Center, so now I have my own pocket-sized copy of the Constitution in my purse. Hey, one never knows when one might need such a copy.
RandomReality fans may recall that I heard Bono speak to the World Affairs Council at a lecture at U of Penn in 2005. Later, I actually got to talk to him (okay, one sentence: "I love you, but not in a creepy way") at a reception afterwards. His talks about Africa, global AIDS relief and poverty are so inspiring. Everytime I hear him speak, I want to move to Africa and start a school. Oh wait. I have no money. And Oprah already did that. But still, Bono is putting his money (and stardom) where his mouth is and using it for a CAUSE.
What is even better, his efforts get results.

sure - glam it up - -I 'll be doing the dedicated Mom thing and visiting schools for Back To School Night - I might even get a glimpse of the school principle( he looks eerily like a taller version of Ray Liotta)

How exciting!! I once met a girl who got pulled on stage at the Hartford Civic Center in 1987 to dance with Bono. (Joshua Tree tour...why, oh why, didn't I buy a T-shirt??) And that was pretty exciting (for me, that is.)
But this is so much better!

Can we can get an update? Does the man have a halo? What is its wattage? What does he smell like? Do his touches heal? Do his socks match? Is he the recipient of good professional dental practices? Details. Give us details.
