So the past few shows, days etc have been rather enjoyable. I think tour, life, energy… everything just gets so compressed, smooshed, exaggerated when we’re in the Northeast. And strangely lonely without my phone or a computer. But things are just peachy today…
Chicago was great! Saw some old New College pals. Minneapolis was too much fun, NOFX said it best, “Seeing Double at the Triple Rock.” But really they’re just so cool there and we got to hang with our friends, drink with Glen and Alex AND THEN, somehow I DID LAUNDRY!
Then came LaCrosse and you know how I love Wisconsin. The Warehouse is one of the coolest venues and we got to play with the ever fun the Disabled. The only bad part is the 3 flights of stairs we have to lug the gear up! Oh and we found out… My Chemical Romance used to play all the time there and they said if they ever “made it” they would buy a lift for the place. I think they “made it” yeah? Where’s the lift?! Funny. Then to top the night off… we got to ride around the block in a limo someone (Shad) got for his girl (Taylor) as a surprise. We drank a little champagne and recorded voice mail greetings.
St. Louis was sweet, it was our first time at The Bluebird. They were super cool. We got to see a few people we were afraid we’d miss this tour and I even got to play MarioKart DS with some wee little girl fans.
So you say… yeah. That sounds real nice WELL guess what?
This morning we went to a buffet. It was a Sunday… we didn’t realize. UGH. And even though it was a little over-stimulating and the food was really bland, we did get to see some great suits and hats. We also got to see some “naturally deodorized” types cut in line thinking we’d all let it go! Well… we did. It was just easier WE WERE SO HUNGRY! I had lots and LOTS of salad and veggies and then to top it off…
I’ve got some blog ideas, you know, like stuff I think about that is not time-sensitive. I think I’ll save them for when we’re not on the road with silly little updates to give you.
OHHHHH AND… I downloaded 1 hour of Flip camera contents. We have a new YouTube channel and will start posting asap. Don’t worry. I’ll let you know.
I just finished watching “Tin Man.” Katie (sister!) and I used to watch the Wizard of Oz every day for years… she gave me a copy for the road. I had to finish watching today… I am in Kansas.
We have tonight off then a special little excursion in the morning. I can’t wait to show you photos!
