Requesting Permission for a Flyby

The Chicago Air and Water show is this weekend, and apparently, a bunch of planes/jets are flying around downtown… getting some practice in. According to Rey, they do this every year, and zip in and around the buildings. We heard a few buzz by, but I didn’t really get to see much. I had my camera out, but slowly realized…

After Work

Justin, Chris and I stayed late to finish up some things. Chris headed home to get rested up for tomorrow (horrible day for us), and I went downstairs for a drink or two. I ended up meeting Tena again, on her way out, and she said she’d give me a call. I ended up watching part of a Cubs game,…

Weird

Last night, I dreamed of an ex-girlfriend from high school. Nothing sordid or untoward, I assure you. But it was the second girl (her name was Dzintra) that I had ever dated. And it’s been a good ten years plus since I’ve spoken with her. In the dream, we met up and fell to talking fairly easily and comfortably. There…

Ugh

Last night did a number on me. I woke up feeling groggy, moved to feeling crappy, and didn’t really feel human until about 4PM or so. Calling it an early night, and gonna try to get some rest. My apartment is still in shambles from all the travelling these past few weekends, but I don’t seem to care right now.

Going Away Party

After working until about 8:30 or so, Justin and I headed over to Shamrock, where Becky was having her going-away party. She’s headed to law school, and will enter into the entertainment law. There, we met Susie, one of the Q101 interns. She was kind enough to show off her jewelry (read: Slinky bracelet). Lots of Q101 folks. Ahh, crap….

Good Advice

I had a long talk with my mother, right before I left for Chicago. It was a good talk and, among the many bits of advice she gave me, she also joked around and said I should “relax” a bit more, when I’m around family. I know I’m the type of person who tends to keep his guard up a…

I’ve decided

While I post most of my own life up on here, I’m still wary of putting family stuff on the blog. While I’ve made the decision to make certain aspects of my life public, not everyone else in my family has (or would want to, given that chance). I expect this will change over time, but for now… I’m going…

Bachelor Party: Alex Visits

A few months back, we all made tentative plans for Alex’s bachelor party. A big camping trip was proposed, but in trying to match everyone’s schedules… it became apparent that we would all be hard pressed to find a good time (in August) for us to get together). Fast forward, and one night Justin and I are out on his…
