04/23/14, a Tuesday - Albuquerque, NM
We got a late start but the drive was pretty. Jill won the Alphabet Game. We played at a funny punk bar called Sister, the green room had a bathroom with a shower & ancient show fliers for D.R.I. and 7 Seconds plastered on the wall. Afterwards we had a tough time finding food but in the morning we got to go to Frontier Restaurant and the co-op. Tristan started feeling flu-ey, he tried some homeopathic remedy that we later debunked.
It’s been really cool seeing one of my favorite bands play every night. Lots of driving.
04/21/14, a Monday - Phoenix to Albuquerque
04/20/14, a Sunday - Hoover Dam Lakeview Overlook
Or: the time we tried to go to the Hoover Dam & the security guy said they’d need to search our roof carrier & I said “that would be a big pain in the butt, can we just turn around?”
04/19/14, a Saturday - Henderson, NV
We played at a VFW & got Slurpees. Everything in Vegas is open 24-hours, I got to go to Subway at midnight.
04/19/14, a Saturday - Flagstaff, AZ to Henderson, NV
Should I go to law school? Could I be a lawyer? Like a vigilante lawyer though.
04/19/14, a Saturday - Flagstaff, AZ
Great show, great bands, great breakfast, great friends.
Kris from Human Weather made us a Dutch Baby this morning, I was able to work on some grading & drink coffee. We got a roof bag carrier thing & now we can breathe in the car again. Heading to Vegas soon, I looked up Cirque du Soleil tickets & they’re way out of our price range.
04/18/14, a Friday, I-17 N to Flagstaff
Crammed a bunch of gear, Dogbreth, & Jilly-bean into my 2002 Subaru Outback.
Investing in a roof rack, pronto.
Downloaded a bunch of peer-reviewed articles on to my reader, so I can highlight on the go.

04/17/14, a Thursday
Tomorrow, we leave for our tiny tour with Waxahatchee. I’m 100% stoked.
Also 100% not ready to “drop everything” for a week, the week before the semester ends and everything in the world is due.
Also only like 75% cool with turning 28 next Friday. When did that happen?
My parody tattoo would be a day-planner with a banner that says “Live Busy, Die When Scheduled”.
