More Read More

I spotted another of these Read More signs, posted on a pipe that’s near the Damen Blue Line stop. Lots of stuff here, along the stairs. I’m really happy to see all these Read More signs, cropping up all over the neighborhood. It’s really just someone who bought a bunch of generic name cards and a marker. I like the…

You Are Beautiful

Saw this while walking down Division. I stopped by Justin’s place, as he was home sick today. I dropped off his portable LaCie drive, as he needed some files he wanted to work with tonight. I hung out there a while, watched a few episodes of Family Guy, and headed home.

Breakfast of Champions

On a rare impulse, I decided to get some breakfast this morning. Specifically, breakfast from Dunkin’ Donuts.

So around 9:45 AM, I dig in to a nice breakfast of jelly donuts…

The whole time we rode back, this guy…

The way of the master

But I do have issues with the way this particular site interprets the biblical passages it cites. That, and their choice of super-techno sound effects for the button rollover effects. :| Below, I’m including a poem that I wrote…

Kevin’s in town

I left the reception around midnight, and decided to swing by Justin’s to see if I might be able to catch Kevin (who’s visiting Chicago this weekend for a wedding). Kevin is out on the west coast, so it’s a rare thing when all our paths cross. I walked up to Justin’s door, knocked, and as I was about to…
