The one place they had to try was Gino’s East. We are at the Lincoln Ave one, which literally has ten tables.

We got some new art on the windows after Jessie and Stacey decorated.

I am waiting for Jessie ad Stacey’s train at Union Station. I’m excited for their visit and hope they have fun!

Parking’s not THAT hard… Is it?

I am fascinated by the effort people use to park large cars. They turn, backup, turn more. In all, they are no closer to the curb than when they started. They’ve wasted gas and made me laugh. This person has been at it — no kidding — 10 minutes and she is STILL no closer to the curb.

Overheard on the Blue Line…

/begin crabbiness — Who says things like "ditto" and "smoocheroo?" Apparently she does. I am glad some phones DON’T work in the subway. /end crabbiness

I start my week of three concerts with Yann Tiersen, the guy who did the music to Amelie. It definitely wasn’t the same music but I could hear it underneath. Amazing performance and close by at the Logan Square Auditorium.

Jessie & Stacey’s visit

Wadup Chicago? Jessie and her friend Stacey decorated the window. With much smelly dry-erase markers and drawings, you can see it from the street I bet. Yay doodles!

Jonesin’ for Obama

In line at the 7-11 in Boystown and while getting invited to a house party I notice Obama — on soda bottles. *sigh*

Credit Cards made easy in a cab

Although I am running late and have to spend the dough on a cab, I am delighted to see payment-friendly options. Touch and go is the way for me.
