Hennessy

chelle2008 left an almost-full bottle here, during the second Chicago get-together. The past few days, I’ve been dipping into it and, I must say… I wonder if I’m developing a taste for it. :)

Another Lazy Sunday

I’ve got some work to do on a microsite for KPWR, and I’m getting to it. Slowly. I slept a great deal more today. Still not sure what that’s about, but I’m feeling a bit more energetic. A good thing, since I’m going to need it for next week. It’s been overcast and gray and thundering most of the weekend….

zzzzzz

Seriously. All I did today, off and on, was sleep. Every so often, I’d sit back down at the computer and try to get some things done. But next thing I know, I’m slipping back under the covers and zonking out for a few more hours. I don’t know where in the hell that came from, but I literally slept…

Sketchbook

Today at lunch, Ben and went to New Laroush (sp?) for some Indian food. The food was, today, particularly exceptional, and we had a good chat over food. On the way back, we started talking about what we learned in school, in classes, and Ben talked about keeping a sketchbook. Lo and behold, I come across a link on Infourm….

Cookout, Art

Alex gave me a call, late in the day at work. He invited me over for some grilled fish, and to go see a gallery type art event. I showed up at his place (finally rode my bike again), and waited a bit for him and Linda to arrive. Turns out, they were in a car accident, and were delayed…

Hideout, Revisited

After work, Justin and I snuck out to the Hideout, for a quick beer. We talked a bit about work (like we can avoid that), and thing shifted to the "database lessons" Justin promised me. For my help with his niece’s Flash photo gallery, he’s going to help me on whatever project I have in mind. I need to come…

Personal Project

Stayed late tonight, to work with Justin on one of his personal projects. He’s putting together a Flash gallery for his niece, and I helped him with a modified version of the Flash photo gallery I’ve made. We scaled it back down from Flash 6 to Flash 5, and added more graphical elements… turned out well, although it took much…

Guitar Man

Most days, guitar man stands at the corner of the Merchandise Mart, right on Wells by the river. He’s an older black man with a beat-up acoustic guitar, greying dreadlocks, and occassionally talks to folks that walk by. Most of the time, he’s just standing out there: not begging for money, just standing there… waiting for… something. I often want…

Test

This morning, on the train, I was standing behind a guy (seated) who was studying. He had one of those 20-page handouts, printed on that thin, tan-colored paper – pictures of road signs and what they mean, diagrams of cars and intersections. Obviously, he was studying to pass his driver’s exam, and I thought it was rather funny to see…

UltraCrib II

An interior shot of the next "Ultra Crib" apartment. Ultra Crib is a contest that’s sponsored by Q101, and one of the very first ever microsites I did at my current job. All in all, it’s a rather amazing contest. You get to win an apartment (rent paid for a year), along with a wide range of prizes (including burritos…

Muskingum!

Driving out to New Concord, OH. Heading to Jim and Meghan’s for a party, where a lot of old MFA folks are going to be drinking and hanging out. Technically, this shot was taken on my way back home to Chicago… but it gives you a good sense of the openness and green. I’ve been in the city too long;…
