I didn't quite get the sleep I wanted as I woke up with the strong urge to use the restroom and in particular the #2!!
But since we're on a bus and we're not allowed to do the POO.... I couldn't just do that and go back to sleep, so I got up and luckily for me we were almost at the venue. The band the EPOXIES were sleeping in the front lounge of the bus. Their RV had broken down and were stuck on the side of the road. So we picked them up and are hoping they can get their vehicle fixed and finish up the rest of the tour dates.

I'm currently sitting in the lobby of the Marquee Theater. There's nobody here, but they have wireless internet, so I'm trying to catch up on some work. Last night we went to a place called PINKS. It's a hot dog stand that's extremely famous in the L.A. area. I had gone there for the first time on Plea For Peace a few months back. They have these crazy, crazy hot dogs with names like the SPIDERMAN dog, the LORD OF THE RINGS dog.. What else did they have? The Today Show dog and they all have the Logos. So they had the Today Show logo and then a description of the dog which was a 10" dog with cole slaw. But we asked ourselves what does that have to do with the TODAY SHOW?

And the SPIDERMAN dog which was three hot dogs, 3 strips of bacon, three slices of cheese, covered in chilie and onions. All this wrapped in a tortilla. Again, what's the affiliation with SPIDERMAN? Everyone wanted me to get the SpiderMan dog, but I just couldn't get myself to do it.

I ended up getting the veggie dog with guacamole, tomatoes, onions, and sauerkraut. That, my friends, was a weird combination. It was called the BAJA dog!! My friend Chris Candy turned 20 at midnight, so I bought him a hot dog and fries. Yeah...I know.....I'm a good friend.

Well, I better get going. I'll write more later. Be well.
Peace, mike park
