Only a few more UK dates

It is wednesday night ( I think), we just played in Guildford. It was nice, a lot of people from the show in London last night, came out. So thank you for making it a fun night. We were pretty tired when we showed up, cos we only slept 3 hours or so. The bar last night didnt close til 4am, and we had to get up at 8am. We went to the Gibson show room today, it was really nice! Then went to Tiger Tours and got a new van. But first we got a parking ticket.
Tonight we are staying with a new friend out in the country, actually in a cemetery. It could freak some people out I suppose, but it is actually very cozy and warm! And there is a bed here. I am very relaxed. The guys are already sleeping. I am uploading a bit more video from last week, cos people keep emailing me about more video from the road. It's just been so insanely busy, I haven't had much time to go through it all yet. I have so much video...But here is a bit from last week...Wow...last week.It seems like 2 months ago....

Loving Glasgow!!!

We are on our way to Barnsley. We have never been before. We just spent 4 days in Scotland, and I am ready to move there. It was so amazing. First stop was Edinburgh, but I think I already wrote a blog about that...Just in case I didn't, here's the short version of it: Played a show and went on a 3 hour walking tour and learned everything about the old buildings, the witch hunts and the ghosts. Then we went to Glasgow. I knew that was gonna be insanely rad, just because we have friends up there. Sure enough, they came out to the show and brought another band with them from Denmark called Mew. So there we were ...Three bands out partying in Glasgow. Gliss, Glasvegas and Mew. That was fun!
I don't even know how many bars we went to, but it got more and more fun and weird. Finally at some point in the morning, we ended up at some small bar, that was supposed to be closed, but they let us in, and there were about 20 people down there in the basement partying. As we are standing at the bar, a cute female midget ( she looked like a very small Britney Spears) walks up to us, looks at David and yells:
"OY! Where are you from?", and as she yells that, she jumps into the air and slaps him really hard right in the face!!! One of our friends just looked at David and said "Welcome to Glasgow".
It's probably the best thing I have experienced EVER! David looked really confused, it was really funny... Then she grabbed Martin and dragged him out on the dance floor...I can't even describe how funny that was. She was half the size of Martin, and as they are dancing she starts rubbing her ass up against him. David and I were laughing so hard, we were crying.
Next day we slept all day and did laundry, then went out again at night.
So it's been fun. Although Martin and David are constantly rude to me. They love it. Like yesterday..This is what happened, when I was about to tell a funny story:
Martin goes: "I dont wanna hear your stories anymore, they are giving me a headache, you are so over the top"
And did I mention we only had 2 small beds in the room? Guess who slept on the floor for 2 days! ME!
As we are about to go out David says:" Boys night out, bring the ladies home. Victoria you need to find a place to stay tonight or sleep in the van!"
I am gonna keep writing down all the rude things they say to me, hehe... I am never rude to them, I am basically a saint!
My body is hurting, especially my heart. It must be all those energy drinks..Or something..Maybe I will take it easy tonight after the show. Oh, just realized we don't have a place to sleep tonight. Great...

Edinburgh Day 1

We have been in Edinburgh for a couple of days. It's a great city, very old and very haunted. I haven't seen anything spooky, except David in the morning, but we took a guided tour of the city today ( yeah dorks ) and they told us about the witch burnings and all the haunted scary places. I will put together a video of the tourist stuff later.
It's insanely cold ! My plan tomorrow, when we get to Glasgow, is finding a pair of gloves. Being European you'd think I would be well prepared for this weather... But I'm not. I am always the one without a jacket, in a t-shirt, begging the guys to borrow some of their warm clothes. They both have 2 jackets on this trip!!!
After walking around Edinburgh all day, I went straight to bed and passed out. Unfortunately that means I am now very awake and everybody else is asleep.
Here's a video from our first night here: video

Manchester tonight

It is monday morning and we are on our way to Manchester. I had phone problems and missed 2 phone interviews, that sucked. But I did a bit of rescheduling. Hit up a gas station and got a "top-up" as they call it over here, for my UK phone.
We are driving a huge splitter van, I am in the back, freezing!! As some of you know already, I forgot my jacket in Los Angeles. Right now I borrowed Martin and David's jackets, one wrapped around my legs. The promoter from Manchester just called to warn us about the cold weather. Apparently it's only gonna get worse, cos we are heading north to Scotland tomorrow. Then Glasgow on wednesday, which I am looking very much forward to.
We are listening to the David Lynch song, " Dark night of the soul", produced by Sparklehorse and Dangermouse. It is SICK! ( yeah, I use that word as a compliment)
There's a bunch of hills and cows and sheep right outside the windows. Trippy...
I'm tired and cold....I need a pair of wool socks and a nice hug, please !
