Returning Home to More Demo

Sunday morning, Liz and I debated how to spend the day. We talked about possibly heading in to St. Louis to visit a few places, but they all didn’t open until noon.

Ultimately, we decided to head back to Chicago so we could… do more house work, and do more demo. We figured that we’d get home mid-afternoon, leaving us a few hours to get some more work in.

On the Way to Edwardsville

This, to me, was an indicator that the battery was being charged, but only got charged when the car was moving at a certain speed.

Waking Up at 4:00 AM for a Colonoscopy

Honestly, in addition to the process itself… the administration of this drug was also fairly unsettling to me. I heard stories of people emerging from this having said or blurted out all manner of crazy things.

Weekend in Whitehall, Day 2

Felix Jung, 20×2 Chicago: What Did We Miss?

Everyone who participated got to answer the question however they saw fit, but had to follow one rule: answer in two minutes or less. I had a blast presenting, and really enjoyed all the varied answers. Below, I’m including video of my talk (along with a few favorites).

20×2 Chicago and an Impromptu Date Night

Tonight, I opted to just tell a story. I had some photos and slides made up, but it just ended up being all of two photos. And while they might have helped, they felt more like a distraction. So I just went all in on the words themselves.
