Back Home

I spent a lot of today just sleeping. I mean, sure, it’s the weekend and all. But I slept a TON today. Just in and out, all day on the couch. Unfortunately, Deb had this great thing at the Arlington Racetrack today. I had a ticket, but wasn’t able to attend. She had some seats reserved and though I was…

Happy Birthday, Justin

Headed over to Justin’s, for a little backyard celebration for his 30th. I got over there a bit early, and met up with Dave and Howard for some Papajin prior to. Quick shot of my gift, some JW Black, and Dave’s fantastic choice of wrapping paper. Warmup routine: a glass of water, some tea, and a pack of Halls. Party…

*cough*

Feeling fairly ok, but the cough got way worse. The muscles in the back of my neck are starting to hurt, I’m coughing so much. I can’t think of anything to write that isn’t out and out complaining. I’m off to sleep.

Happy Birthday, Everybody!

So for our little Interactive group in Chicago, there are a ton of birthdays in August: Justin, Kashif, Matt, Anthony, and Deb. We all gathered at Cafe Iberico to celebrate (Mmmmmmm tapas). As she does with every big birthday gathering, Deb gets everyone a huge bag of goodies. Justin, showing off gifts. Anthony, who is sadly leaving Q101 for greener…

Resting

Since yesterday evening, I’ve felt pretty crappy. I’ve had this itch in the back of my throat, and it’s been back there all day today. Each time I cough, there’s a sharpness in the back of my mouth, and I can feel how hot the cough is. Yuck. It’s weird to feel sick in the summertime. Just something not right…

The Aristocrats

Went to go see an advance screening of The Aristocrats today, with Justin, Chris, Will and Dave. Ever since I heard about it, I’ve been itching to see it. The five of us showed up fairly early (circa 6:45PM for a 7:30PM show), and they were turning people away at the door. As happens with these advance screenings, they run…

Ninja Stylee

There’s this silly thing going on between our department and Marketing. For the past month or so, we’ve had a scooter in our area that really belongs to the Marketing/Promotions folks. Well, last week, they came and took it back. Since then, we’ve tried stealing it from the, and peppering the thing with stickers that have our logo all over…

Top of the Mart to ya

So this morning, a few of us showed up early to work and managed to get onto the roof of the Merchandise Mart. To give you some perspective as to how high we are, check out this entry. Chris, next to what I think is some big satellite relay. That, or it’s the biggest popcorn machine I’ve ever seen in…

Q101 Pontiac Street Team

So. Remember that photoshoot that Ben and I went on a while back? Well, here’s the final result of a lot of those images. Click to find out more about the Q101 Pontiac Street Team. The look is quite nice, and I really dig the design/layout of this thing (all Ben). Also, Chris is the one who did all the…

Another Coin-Guessing Game

I swear, this is starting to turn into some sort of unofficial sport with us. Mike ended up bringing in a big water cooler jug of change. As a frame of reference, let me refer you to: 1) The first ever coin-guessing game.2) Matt’s Bag-O-Money Challenge3) Justin’s Quarterless Bag of Money Chris, using some intricate scientific method to determine the…

Rainbo Club

Met up with Justin for drinks at Rainbo. I originally wanted to hide out at home after what felt like a nonstop weekend (my work schedule last night combined with today made it feel like I hadn’t really stopped moving). But when I sat down in front of a computer tonight, the energy just wasn’t there. So off I went….
