Meiko updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@meiko) on Wednesday (January 14), talking about how she recovered from a flu bug and opening for Katy Perry at her Hotel Cafe show on Monday night despite the illness. The singer songwriter tells readers:
I picked up some nasty flu bug while I was in Europe, and it kicked my arse for a little bit… I have to start remembering to travel with all my vitamins and the weird hippie shizzle I like to take when I’m under the weather… Lesson learned.
I got back home… went to Trader Joe’s, made a smoothie, took my Colloidal Silver throat spray and my Ultra Zinc Lozenges and now I’m cool as a mule in school.
The bummer/ awesomeness that happened… was… the day I got back… I got asked to open up for Katy Perry at The Hotel Cafe… I was like, “Uhhh-should I do it??? I feel like balls!?” But… I did it… I had to… Not only because it was an already sold-out show… but, because Katy is my friend and she asked me to.
Did y’all know she started off at the Hotel Cafe? I used to serve beers while she would be on stage, by herself with her acoustic guitar… Haha! Those were the days….
Anyway… She ended up having the flu too. Here is a pic of us smiling… but totally sick.
