This time tomorrow, I'll be in the air on my way to the UK to start the tour. I'll be leaving behind the Seattle Sonics and their (just broken!) 14 game losing streak, and arriving back just in time for the NBA All Star Break and the release of the new Mountain Goats album. Oh, and that Super-Duper-Mega-Tuesday business. I'll be arriving as Man City is scheduled to take on cellar dwellers Derby and league leaders United and Arsenal, and an American hipster rock band (of whom I'm rather fond) tries to take over London. We'll also be walking into a broiling debate about new terror legislation - which should make us Americans feel right at home.
Of course I'm ecstatic about the debating, but for now I'm happy just to be heading across the pond.
