Why Do Birds Suddenly Appear?

I saw this at the poster spot a while back, but haven’t had a chance to get a shot of it. Not lit that great, but at least you can get a sense of it here. I wonder if the people who built this also did the whole eye thing.

Nope

Sorry. I’ve spent the day lounging around, and picking up the place (slightly). Nothing for ya here. I updated yesterday’s entry, but that’s about all the energy I’ve got.

BBQ

I didn’t really take that many pictures tonight (mainly because I didn’t know anyone at all, and didn’t feel like asking for permission and doing that whole thing. Howard (one of Justin’s building-mates) snapped a few shots here and there. Met a bunch of interesting folks (as well as the couple, Liz and Patrick, who the party was for… as…

En Route

Got invited to a backyard cookout at Justin’s place, that his neighbor Michael (I think I spelled her name right there) was throwing. It was a going-away party, but also a sort of general get-together I guess. I walked down Damen towards Ukranian Village, and stopped off to pick up a sixpack. Saw a few things along the way: Where…

Another Long Day

Got out of work near 6PM or so. Chris and I took the Blue Line, and met up with Will for dinner. Grabbed a slice at Santullo’s, and the three of us wandered around a bit… heading over to Reckless. I dug around some, and came across a DVD of The World According to Garp, for about $8. I loved…

WOOT!

I stumbled home at about 3:50 AM to find this sticking out of my mailbox. Juliet!! Matt!! You guys rock!! I got a lovely card from Juliet and Matt, along with some great gifts. I got a book of poetry, some noodles, and a bunch of photographs that Juliet took. Turns out, the two of them are going to visit…

Pet Peeve

Thankfully, I haven’t worked too many super late nights lately. However, the AC shuts off for the back half of the Q101 offices after 8PM. The main areas (the studios, the jock offices) are all cooled. But back where we are? It just shuts off. Things don’t get really bad until maybe 10:00PM. Then, the air gets muggy, there’s no…

Assessment

Sparks did help wake me up some, but at what cost? This stuff looks like neon urine, and has a taste that’s the equivalent of Flintstone vitamins (in liquid form). This stuff tastes like drinking Pez. Or, as Grumpy put it, carbonated Dimetapp.
