Well Im probably not the best person for the job on this diary. Been sick for quite a few days now, and on this particular night I was quite fevery and kinda delusional. So not only did I not have my best show, but I also don't remember a lot of what went on this night.
I know that some people came that knew Willem somehow, perhaps through his brother. But my head was in a vapory cloud of heat and I seriously could not focus on anything. I knew I was sick and brainless, so I didn't try to meet any of these people, but apparently they were good people.
Basically I saved as much energy as possible for the show, burned it at the show, and then called it a night on reality.
The guys continued to enjoy the evening at the bar across the street, so the van and I took some interesting journeys through Des Moines in search of food. This of course included me standing outside of a closed McDonalds (with a 24-hour drivethrough), screaming "You forgot my sweet and sour sauce" through a glass panel enough times for them to read my lips. I guess it would have been easier for them to read my lips had I not been screaming...
Id like to say this is the first time I've had a problem with McDonalds and sauce, but it's definitely definitely not.
By the way, feeling much better today, and just in time. Tonight is our show in Cedar Rapids and Im in pretty good shape for it. Still resting as much as possible though, and will give it my all tonight.
Good luck everyone.
