Hey, are you gonna be in Grand Rapids tomorrow? I wasn't planning on doing any waiting/stalking, but if you're going to be in town, I'll be up for meeting up for lunch or dinner and maybe hanging around for a while, and while I'm there if Bono happened by, that wouldn't be a bad thing.

I didn't want to stalk alone, and I don't know GR very well, so I was waffling. But, if you're up for meeting up for lunch or dinner and hanging around for a while, I am too. Maybe a late lunch/early dinner, then a bit of hanging around for whenever he shows up to go into the place?

I'm still a bit undecided on whether it'd be worth trying to catch him, since the hotel he'd be staying in (and that's debateable since he probably would just fly out to Dallas afterward and rest up for his speech there tomorrow) is connected by a walkway to the convention center, and I really don't want to be hanging around outside the hotel - I'm not sure there's even a place to hang around in, the way it's all set up. If it wasn't a private dinner, I might feel differently on trying to meet/see him. I dunno. I just feel weird about it for some reason.

I still have the afternoon off, though, and that hotel is swanky and has a nice restaurant, I'm told. If you wanted to drive all the way to Grand Rapids for lunch/dinner and just hanging out, I'd be game for meeting you there/halfway. In the understatement of the century, I do admit that I'm not as big of a draw as Bono. LOL

regarding his speech in Dallas, by "tomorrow" I mean Friday, of course.

My husband is pulling in the reins and telling me I "shouldn't go" which is almost enough to make me go just to spite him. However, I probably should not skip out on work since I already did so once this week. I'd be happy to meet you in GR/halfway some other time, maybe on a weekend or something, just to hang out though. That would be great fun. I agree with the sentiments about it being a private dinner and all that. Shall we just plan then to meet up some other time soon?
