A mixed bag

Bad things so far:

- Van deemed unroadworthy one day prior to departure
- Stayed up till four burning CDs (Bayleaf stayed up screenprinting)
- Departed late, in a Dodge Caravan full of all the gear and seven people
- Cramps (see above)
- Found out en route that show was cancelled (venue shut down: licensing issues)
- Got lost, missed Philly, ended up in Jersey
- Broke a mirror on the borrowed van while parking in Philly
- Got dicked on money at the Manhattan show
- Had a friend, who had come up to NYC from Philly, get her wallet stolen in Manhattan
- Wandered around Bushwick at 8:30 am exhausted, because I couldn't sleep anymore
- Learned the Monday show in Jersey get cancelled
- Slept on a floor every night since Friday
- Watched a really crappy Monday Night Football game

Good things so far:

- Played a fun warehouse show in Philly, arranged at the last minute
- Rode in the very spacious replacement van
- Met a long-time/no-see friend in Manhattan for a afternoon two-hour coffee
- Ate delicious Ukranian food and drank delicious beer with the ass-kicking A White Bear, Bave Dee, et. al.
- Played a great show in Brooklyn with Titus Andronicus (after a lengthy nap in the van)
- Read a newspaper over coffee for the first time in days

We'll see how Delaware treats us tomorrow.

Oh, Bayleaf! Both times I have met her I have thought her name was "Bailey", and wondered if people called her "Beetle Bailey" as a kid. Those cd cases are nice.

Her real name is Bailee, but I call her Bayleaf on this here weblog.

Show in DE tonight is a houseshow. I'll keep an eye out for this pizza you speak of, neo.

Oh, I got it. So the "Beetle" nick would work. Cool nonstandard spelling.
