One Book, One Chicago

After work, Liz called to see if I wanted to go see an exhibit at the Downtown Library. It was a gallery of custom-made books for One Book, One Chicago. I had a bit of a stick up my butt, and initially didn’t want to go out. But, after taking a step back… decided to meet her, and to take…

Starcade!

The long-awaited Starcade T-shirts finally arrived today, for Jane and Chris. As you may recall, Jane found a great Starcade resource a few weeks back. She and Chris ordered some shirts, but the shipment got a little messed up, and only arrived today. Rumor has it that the two of them might be able to get their photos on the…

Mmmmm…. Bhajiya!

Kashif brought in some fantastic home cooking today, for everyone to share. I’ve never had bhajiya before, but once I tasted one of them… I had to pull myself away after eating a fourth. Man, those things were good.

Steph @ California Clipper

Met up with Liz and Steph (and Marcus) for a Guild Complex reading tonight, at the California Clipper. She’s read here before, but tonight’s reading was for the Guild’s annual awards ceremony, for fiction and non-fiction. A dark shot of the table. The room was fairly intimate, so I didn’t feel like having a big intrusive flash go off. And…

Overheard

This morning, while getting my coffee, I overheard a woman talking about taking her kid to the zoo. She said how they’ve gone once or twice, but each time her boy was constantly afraid of the animals, afraid that they would “get” him. I laughed to myself hearing this, remembering back to a time when animals filled me with a…

Operation Costume, Take 3

A long while back, I set up a “Google Alert” to keep an eye out for the word avoision. I rarely check my Gmail account, but today I happened to pop in and saw a few mentions. Lo and behold, I get taken to a YouTube video of a guy in an Operation Costume. Turns out he got inspired, and…

Steph Reading @ California Clipper

A while back, my friend Steph did a reading at the California Clipper for the Guild Complex. For those of you who might have missed it, she’s reading again tomorrow night (Wednesday, February 7th). The Clipper is a cool venue (albeit a little out of the way). It’s a cool feel inside, and really epitomizes what I think of when…

Sequestered!

On arriving this morning, I happened to see that Chris’ desk was completely cleared off. He’s set up shop in Letty’s office, so that he can work undisturbed by all of us rabble in the bullpen. Chris and Jane have been working a lot on this year’s Emmy Award animation. Last year, they did a spectacular job – and they’re…

New Space!

So it’s official. Papers were reviewed by lawyers, plans were drawn up, papers were signed. We’re moving. Again. Time sure zooms by. It seems like we just moved out of our old space and just moved into our current digs. And now, come April (if we’re lucky), we’ll be moving yet again over to a new location at State and…

Bling!

Bryan (aka Peabe) shows off the bling that just arrived in the mail. It’s his design (of course). Check out more of his work over on his website.
