me and Tina/T have been discussing this and wondered how everyone else feels about it. Are you embarrassed about being a loonie or proud.

haha looks like it's just you and me Tina

We're not questioning whether people are proud to be a UB40 fan at all - i'll happily tell anyone that will listen about UB40 and what they're doing. What we mean is do you tell people about the whole internet fan/ubloonie/fanfest/coming on here chatting to random people on here every day thing?

I know exactly what your saying Hels in fact didn't we discuss this the other week?

I don't mention it for the simple reason that if somebody told me that they did all the same things that we do but following another band then I'd think they we're a complete nut job!! :lol:

I think most people know I belong to this cyber family.

The senior partner of the company where I work, mentioned UB40 in my online company profile. I got a great kick when I saw what he'd done.

I love catching my UBloonie mug during my 9-5 day, brings a smile to my face. I have a UBloonie bracelet made by Jolene for some of us in my car (only to be worn on gig days). I love it :)

Even if I don't tell people about this little world, they don't have to look very far :)

Sadly no UBloonie t shirt to be worn in 2 weeks, Crabby would kill me :(

Why not tell people :?:
If you think of the people that come on here :?
You really dont know who looks in :shock:
Family.....friends.....people from work....neighbours :? :?
As these people look in you might just be answering a post :?:
Or putting a pic of yourself up :shock:




Gotcha :shock:

They will know your a loonie :D

So be honest and admit it :D :D :D

Let me just say that Erin used to talk about "the BB" all of the time. She would go on and on about talking to everyone and stuff and I thought she was just short of standing on the street corner talking to imaginary people....but then...............I went to a UB40 concert with her and met some of the people that she talks to on here and now I am hooked and talking about it to people. I guess you don't know until you try it, at least for me anyway.

Only CLOSE friends know ... i wouldnt tell more random people or extended family, generally people irl think forums are for saddo's and or geeks and when i mentioned a fanfest before you would have thought i was suggesting going on a bus ticket collecting convention or summat :roll:

Well considering i'm fairly new on the board and not a golden oldie
I couldn't stop chatting to my mates about the BB, Especialy when I
was one of the lucky one's to win the comp for the CDP gig back in
June just a few weeks after discovering and joining the BB.

I dont mention the BB - but most know about the website from when I used to organise fests! :) To be honest dont really talk to the 'outside world' apart from my family, about UB40 period.....got sick of the "are they still goin?" question years ago - and dont really think they are interested anyway!!!!!!!!! :roll:
