My social calendar appears to be woefully lacking in entries for tomorrow night. Anyone care to meet me at Dockers for a pint or two? Current Mood: bored

So, JJ needed a bath yesterday. He'd gotten into something on the beach and smelled like shite. That
was an adventure. Imagine, if you will, a very large, very frisky, very soapy and slippery puppy galloping through the house, leaving wet footprints and soap suds in his wake, with a naked drummer chasing after him. High comedy I assure you. JJ was finally caught and the bath was finally completed, so in the end I won the war. However, I'm quite certain that in the process I very much lost the battle. Next time I may have to deploy additional forces.
I've succeeded, thanks to Cece's wise tutoring and careful eye, in making the most incredible Guiness cheese soup and my landlady delivered a lovely looking blackforest tort to my door this morning. (Apparently she thinks I'm too thin.) And I think I could manage to whip up a nice salad or some sandwiches to go with, if anyone is interested in coming to visit me for a late lunch date. Current Mood: amused

I've bought a new drum kit. I've been playing around on it for a week or two now, and it sounds fantastic. I can't wait to get into the studio and see how it sounds in that setting. In the meantime, I'd fuckin' love
to get together with one or more of you and try some things out. Especially you, Ad.
Oh, and I made sure there is a place for the coconuts to be placed on the kit. ;) Current Mood: excited

Adam and Bono: thank you so much for the lovely night. I'm still recovering. I think the club might be, too, after our onslaught.
Edge, missed you terribly, but at least you were there with us for a little while over the phone. I managed to convince Bono to let me drink that pint, rather than pouring it over my head... although the result was in question for quite some time.
Time for this licky little lap puppy to go to bed. See you all soon, I hope. Thanks again.

I am finally starting to feel better. Thank you, Bono, for taking such good care of me. How did I get so lucky as to have such a wonderful man in my life? I love you so much, sweet man.
Edge, thanks for being there for him, and for me. It means a lot to me. We should get together soon. I miss talking with you.
Adam, what are you up to these days? I'd love to get together with you as well. Current Mood: calm

I guess I shouldn't have played with JJ for an hour in the rain the other day. Now I've a terrible cold. If anyone wants to come and visit me, I'd be happy for the company, though of course you enter this plague house at your own risk.
CC stopped by and brought me more biscuits -- she didn't know I was ill until she arrived or she no doubt would've brought chicken soup as well. I think it's a secret plot to fatten me up, personally.
Hope everyone is having a good and productive week. Current Mood: sick

Hey Ad', haven't seen you in a while. Are you busy tonight? Thought I might pop by for a visit. I promise, I won't get pissed tonight (unless you want me to). Current Mood: calm

Edge, I'm sorry. Current Mood: sad

JJ needs a good romp. As does his daddy. Can I interest anyone in a romp on the beach? Current Mood: bouncy

Yesterday afternoon I had my very first cooking lesson from master chef Cece. The sheppard's pie came out beautifully. However, the soda bread was an unmitigated disaster, more suitable for the hazardous waste dump than human consumption. Moral of the story: If I offer you sheppard's pie, accept; if I offer you bread, run for your very life.
It's interesting that you'd be discussing puppies, Bono, because I have been thinking more and more about getting a puppy myself. I asked Cece about watching it for me during those times when we're on tour, and she said she and da would happily do so. So... anybody up for a search for the perfect puppy?
Off to the shop for milk, now. Hope you all are having a lovely day. Current Mood: calm

Home again. Anybody else finding that 9pm hits and you're wired to go onstage, but have nowhere to go? I thought I'd gotten used to being off tour, but those festivals put me right back into the cycle. It's almost enough to convince me to join you in club-hopping Adam. Almost.
But it was lovely to play live again, wasn't it? And I think we really reached 'em, ya know? You all reminded me once again why I put that notice up on the board in the first place.
This morning was an adventure. Did my laundry entirely by myself, for the first time in my life I think. I was rather concerned that I'd end up with pink knickers or some other silly mishap, but luckily I managed to come out unscathed other than a missing sock. Where do those go, anyway?
I think I may head out for a pint in a bit, if anyone is around and wants to join me. I'm thinking Dockers. Hope to see you lot there. Current Mood: restless

Since nobody took me up on my plea, I was forced to throw myself on the mercy of our very own Elvis and deliver up several dozen biscuits to his flat. However, I've still two dozen left. Adam? Come on, I know you like Cece's biscuits. And we haven't been riding in ages. When would you like to get together to go for a ride?
Edge, I was talking to my landlady this morning, and she told me about several other places she is looking to let. One is out here on the beach, a few doors down. Another is just off St. Stephen's Green, a Georgian. A third is over the sweets shop on Grafton Street. If you've an interest, I'd be happy to join you in looking at them. I quite fancy the idea of you in the Georgian, myself. Somehow, its quiet dignity would suit you.
Bono, my very own Cookie Monster, are you interested in a picnic? I'm thinking Wicklow Mountains, lots of fresh air and a lovely fresh breeze, maybe a stream to sit by... Although we'll have to get Ads to recommend a wine for us as I'm sure we'd do it all wrong otherwise.
I think I'm getting the hang of this holiday thing. S'a pity it'll end just when I've got it all figured out. But I see that Bono and Edge have been hard at work, hammering out the direction of our next album. Just let me know when to buy the coconuts. Current Mood: relaxed

Help. I've been inundated by chocolate-chip biscuits. Cece seems to have come to the conclusion, after seeing me onstage yesterday, that I am starving away to nothing. I've now three dozen more homemade chocolate-chip biscuits sitting on my counter tempting me sorely. To go with the one dozen I'd left from her last batch. For the sake of the band's image, someone (or several someones) please come and take some of them off of my hands, before I become fat Elvis. Current Mood: amused

I am nearly moved in now, thanks to Bono's unselfish willingness to pack and move boxes, and his ability to keep me on task and get me to throw away some of the less necessary items.
I've a need for some furnishings, and I was thinking that you, Adam, might be just the person to take along, with your sense of style and flair.
Edge, if you will pardon the occasional box and the lack of furniture, my castle is ready for the grand tour. Whenever you'd like to come see it, I'm sitting here bored outta my mind. Mind you, I'm sitting here on my very own piece of sandy, rocky beach, having an iced tea and being bored. But bored outta my mind none the less.
Bono, I know you've a busy calendar today. However, I was hoping you'd be available tomorrow night, perhaps, to experiment with the moonlight through the sittingroom windows.
To all: Cece has come and loaded my refrigerator with loads of fresh-cooked meals, and has left with me several dozen just-baked chocolate-chip biscuits. If you come and keep me company, I'll share.... Current Mood: bored

I'm off to look at flats this afternoon. Someone PLEASE come join me, as I really don't want to do this alone. It's just too depressing by oneself. I can provide bribes in the form of alcohol, or a good pasta lunch, if such are required.
When can we get back to work? I'm bored out of my friggin mind.... Current Mood: bored

Happy Birthday, Edge! I hope you'll forgive me for not posting this last night. But I got my wish -- I don't remember much about last night, including the dancing I. May. Have. Done.
Glad you liked the book of sonnets. It wasn't much, but I know you like those sorts of things. And the bow was lovely, don't you think?
I promise I'll be awake later if you want to start looking at some flats.
Ad? Ring me. We've things to discuss. Current Mood: exhausted

|Edge's Birthday Roast
Here it is Sunday already and we've never confirmed our plans for birthday celebrations tonight. Since Bono has informed me that I. Will. Dance., I suggest we meet at Docker's for a few pints, say around 7pm, before heading off to some night club or sundry. Adam, can you point us in the direction of a reasonably nice club, preferably one that'll not be too crowded?
I've your prezzie all wrapped, Edge. Cici was kind enough to tie the bow for me as I seem to have developed ten thumbs this morning.
Who will be bringing the chocolate syrup? Adam? Current Mood: cheerful
