San Francisco
I ran away to stay with friends near San Jose last night, so this morning I slept late and hung out with my mates for a leisurely breakfast. I also saw my first ever episode of "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" (OK, so I don't see a lot of TV) and really enjoyed it. It was much funnier than I thought it would be. Especially the bit at the end where they watch a video of the straight guy trying to do everything by himself. Took BART into the City in the afternoon and first stop was to get an extremely average haircut on Castro St. I'm staying with another friend in San Francisco for the next couple of nights and hope to catch up with a few people. Fielded a few phone calls about the European show and headed out for sushi. Can't beat the SF sushi deal.

Within the bands entourage (certainly by comparison to the crews clockwork scheduling) travel departure times are often a little loose. This morning was especially so, due to three contradictory memos which had been emailed out last night and this morning.

I was planning on resurrecting the tour diary today, being the day we were scheduled to fly to Auckland for the load-in tomorrow. However, its now old news that the remainder of the tour dates have been postponed, so Im not going anywhere further than the corner cafe. Its been a very weird week indeed - much akin to driving into a wall.
