I am wearing my favorite new comfy-cuddly sweater/wrap thing from Ann Taylor Loft I do not look like this in it Jim calls it a poncho “Is that a real poncho or a Sears poncho?” - Frank Zappa The sun is shining and it’s relatively warm A big golden dog smiling, hanging his head out the back seat of a Jeep Kicked off a user group this week that is going to be huge Remembering the last time I had an uncontrollable giggle fit It was at a small playhouse in Chicago with my friend Susan “Do you know what the Nazis did first? They took all the guns away from the Jews.” The actor stopped in the middle of her monolog, looked at us and said, “Is there a problem?” Which only made things worse You really had to be there Da’s birthday is tomorrow I am so grateful he was born Planning a trip to Michigan in May to shop estate sales with Mom Planning Nelson’s annual trip to Chicago in June Planning Susie’s annual trip to Chicago sometime this summer The “Bang” song from How I Met Your Mother A date with Jim at the Roundhouse last night It’s so cool and amazing how, after all these years, we still have great conversations The restaurant Yolk on Wells in River North – great omelets and amazing fresh fruit I’m finally awake and thinking clearly after two months of mono ~~~~~~~~~~~ I am listening to: Some jerk yap yap yap I am reading: Nothing much And I am: Comfy-cuddly
I’m finally kicking the mono’s ass instead of it kicking mine The famous 'hairy mammoth' of Chicago Laughing with Mom on the phone My fingernails look great The sun is SHINING! Lunch @ Portillo's with Jim the IT guy today Going to dinner with the You Know Who’s tonight “That looks a little big on you, let’s try the medium.” - the angelic and delightful salesperson @ Ann Taylor Loft in Geneva Commons The Old Spice commercial – “I’m on a horse.” Still haven’t had any chips since June of last year in spite of many opportunities including a special 'mono dispensation' from Jim The upside to mono: lots of reading. Recommended: Game Change, The Lost Symbol, and Hawaii by James Michener “Practically every week I hear somebody say ‘You should see all the great things Heather is doing for LCG.’ We really screwed up letting you go with Larry.” - the guy who fired me 2.5 years ago “Well I believe everything happens for a reason and I’m really happy now.” - my response It’s funny – I didn’t even think before saying that, it just came out. Must be true. ~~~~~~~~~~~ I am listening to: Phoenix – If I Ever Feel Better I am reading: Nothing right now And I am: Rockin'
