Last night we played in Newcastle. The further north we travel, the harder it is to understand what people are saying. The accents are so thick... I try to think about Star Trek and Scotty. Hoping his dialogue will teleport me into some kind of machine like state of understanding everyone.

The club had a huge video screen in house and a projector, so I got to show my movie on a bigger screen. The shows are starting to blur together. Not sure why that is. I think it has to do with being on a tour bus, instead of driving in a van or on a train. I have no idea where we are traveling. I just wake up and we are in the next city. Don't get me wrong, this is an ideal situation for me, but at the same time I feel like I'm missing out on the experience that is the UK.

We headed straight for the hotel after the show and I ended up watching British television til' past 4 AM. I've been up for about an hour. I was supposed to meet up with some locals to see Harry Potter, but I lost their phone number. ARGGHH!!!! Oh well. They have a gym here at the hotel, so I'll spend some time there and then a soak in the whirl pool. Be well.

MY MEALS YESTERDAY:
BREAKFAST:EGG SANDWHICH
LUNCH:FISH CAKES/PHILLY CHEESE STEAKS, and an ASSORTMENT of salads
DINNER:Catering didn't have their own section, so they had to close early. They set up dinner in to go boxes. I ate after the show in the bus. I think I ended up eating more than I've ever eaten. There were 4 different dinners and I ate one of each:
SWORDFISH
TOFU
CHICKEN
and PASTA
I don't know why I'm eating so much. My body must be wondering the same. Well, maybe not. It's used to it.

Peace,
Mike Park
