I'm lying in bed at a HOLIDAY INN in Lexington, KY. Nobody is here, but me. There is wireless internet, complete silence, and I didn't have to pay a cent for the room. You see Alkaline Trio gets a day room where they can shower up and their road manager took me over here early in the morning and nobody has been here for the last two hours. WOOHOO!!

I met up with the Trio yesterday. Bus call was 7:00 AM. Crashing out at a friends house I called a cab and made it over to the meeting place at 6:30AM. The bus was there in all its beauty. Oh, that warm feeling of a tour bus and seeing what kind of features are on board. Sat. TV, kitchen, bathroom... The basics were there and I was happy.

After greeting everyone with hugs, I went to sleep in my rock and roll bunk. I crashed out for three hours and when I woke up I was in Grand Rapids, Mi.. I shipped all my merchandise to my friend Dave who lives in town, but my t-shirts, stickers, buttons never arrived. I tracked them and then called UPS and guess what....? They have no idea where the package is. Rage was filling my body, but I calmed as really what could I do? But I have no shirts, stickers, posters, or buttons. Fortunately I have CD's.

The show in GR, MI.. was a rocker!! SOLD OUT and a fun time. Afterwards there was an after party show for MOTLEY CRUE. Vince Neil was hosting a wet t-shirt contest and I just wanted to get the hell out of there. No thanks!!! I can only equate the tits and ass crowd as the lowest common denominator in regards to people I'd want to hang out with. So I went back to the bus, read a bit, watched a movie, and went to sleep.....ZZZZZZZZ
Peace, mike
