These days go by so quick it's really disgusting. I feel like I've done absolutely nothing. Hmmmm... Well, I'm sitting upstairs at the House of Blues in Orlando, Florida. It's located dab/smack in the middle of DISNEY WORLD. It's a surreal atmosphere that I'm not sure how I feel. Though I love the theme parks and the disney experience would be great if I could actually go in the park, but playing a rock show and in particular a political rock show makes for a complex/confusing time for me. But that's ok.

Things have been incredibly good. After yesterdays memorable day. I'd have to rank it in the top 20 days of my life. Being able to have a conversation with Michael Moore and Gloria Steinem was really ridiculous and I don't know how it happened. I feel lucky and honored.

We rocked Tampa last night. The humidity had me on my toes as the perspiration kept rolling off the tip of my nose. Tons of energy from positive kids got my adrenaline pumping, so I was in an extra good mood. Plus I was still reeling from earlier in the day.

We didn't leave until 11:30 AM today, so I actually slept in a real bed in a hotel for the first time all tour. ANTI-FLAG always gets one hotel room to shower in, but they never sleep in it because they'd rather fall asleep on the bus where they can just sleep until they arrive at the next city, so the room is empty. I decided to take advantage of this and had this big beautiful bed to myself. Alone, I stripped naked and walked around gleefully. A few jumps on the bed and with the glow of the TV keeping me up I stared at the ceiling smiling at my day. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Peace always, mike park
