Day Off - London-2

Regular readers may remember my dental disaster salvaged by having a temporary filling fitted in Zurich by an Asian dentist called Peter Sellers. Today I finally got it sorted out permanently at an awesomely hi-tech dentist in Knightsbridge. The Swiss guy was pretty impressive, but this place actually photographed all my teeth in horrifying digital close up, relayed to a video screen at my elbow. It didn't make me feel much better, but gave me all sorts of ideas for new video pieces for the show.

Consequently spent the rest of the day drinking soup through a straw and feeling like the elephant man, but at least its accompanied by that smug sense of achievement at having managed to organize another of those simple domestic chores that become overwhelmingly complicated to arrange when you're on tour.

The crew loaded into Earls Court today and reports are encouraging. I'm really looking forward to this.
