Which Way is Up ?
Monday 26th October 2009. Los Angeles - Vancouver.

The alarm went off at 9am, I got up feeling absolutely dreadful, packed, left my bag at the door and went back to bed til 2pm. I'm really not a happy camper. I don't have much recollection of the journey to Vancouver, but clearly it happened as I'm here now. The crew end-of-tour party is tonight, but they'll have to struggle on without me. I hate to miss it, but I barely know which way is up just now.

Doc
You are probably all better now. At least you were in Vancouver - where healthcare has a public option!!! We were in Vancouver - I am a doc and helped out before the show at the stage when a 16 year old fan passed out...woulda helped you out too if I had known! Hope all is good now. A little R&R is better than quite a few meds! See you in Seattle.

Best job in the world?
Somehow, I got sucked into a quiz on facebook and selected my ideal job as a "Roadie for U2"... and the irony of it all. Reading your entries for some time now, I can only think that perhaps YOU have the best job - though I could not nor would not want to be away from my children for that long.... God Bless ya for doin' it so I can enjoy it live in concert. Thanks for all you do - entertaining me on show nights and when this entry gets published. Ta.

It looks like we will have to do our Tonight Show residency another time - we're one man down. Bono has injured his arm in a cycling spill in Central Park and requires some surgery to repair it. We're sure he'll make a full recovery soon, so we'll be back! Much thanks to Jimmy Fallon and everyone at the show for their understanding.
