JANUARY 31, 2004

yesterday i had such a great day at school…we had a big school assembly for all the kids from kindergarten up to Grade 2 (primary 3). the purpose of the assembly was to celebrate the fact that all the children managed to raise $173,000 for a charity in China! they raised money by reading a certain amount of books – with each book they finished their parents, or other sponsors, would donate money. so the children spent about a week reading as many books as they could…and at the end of the week the total was calculated. the charity in china is called “Heifer Project” – a “Heifer” is a cow. so for yesterday’s assembly the school chose me and this other guy to dress up as a cow! hahahaha…i was the head and the other guy was the ass. so all the children were in the big gymnasium waiting and then the principal said, “we have a special guest today – its a Heifer!”. then we came out – but when i was wearing the cow mask i couldn’t see anything! HAHAHAHA…there was supposed to be another teacher who was supposed to guide us but he left! i whispered to my partner “yo man – the teacher isn’t here! i can’t see shit!” hahahaha…so i was in the front and i couldn’t see – i could just see the lines on the floor of the gym. so i followed those lines and then all of a sudden i came to a wall. i was like, “oh shit…”, then i made a 90 degree turn to the left and followed another line until i finally found where the principal was. i could hear her laughing so hard! so we stood next to her and when she said, “you kids managed to raise 173,000 dollars!” me and the other guy pretended to fall to the ground. the kids LOVED it!

alright ladies and gents…i’ve finally uploaded a bunch of photo’s to both our photo page as well as the Tour Diary…check them out…there are still a lot more photo’s to get from friends and our lovely roadie Joseph so we’ll add those when we get them…we started a new song last night!!! sounds fucking rad…can’t wait…ANYWAY: people at my school have just watched the documentary these past couple of days and they can’t believe it…they get so inspired from watching the documentary and that means so much to me. its weird that things i do and have done with this band can actually inspire people. especially people who view the way i do things – that’s non-stop doing stuff everyday and chasing my dreams no matter how much the world says that it can’t be done. if you haven’t seen the documentary – its linked up above…
