Spring has sprung. It was 70 degrees this week. It felt great. The warm air from the south blowing -- actually blowing like a fucking gale. Every spring when the wind picks up all the trash that has been collecting in the gutters, alleys and gangways all seems to blow up into my eyes. I'm spending more time flushing my eyes with water than I am drinking water.
I've had a busy week. We took our travel agent out for dinner in Schaumburg (yeah, the burbs). We when to Wildfire -- which as my loyal readers know, is my favorite restaurant in the city. It was shit...again. My steak was bland, the services we sub par (fat ugly suburban girl with a pus filled pimple on her cheek...ew). It was nice to actually meet AH (travel agent). She has been so good to me and my family over the past year -- she is moving to D.C. (ish) next week and she is very nervous about it.
I had dinner with and old boss yesterday (CMc) at a fab place in Ravenswood -- Cafe 28 is a Cuban/Mexican Fusion place. Since it was so fantastic outside I had a Mojito (we didn't sit outside because it was evening and it would have gotten too cool for us). The food was fantastic! I give it four (out of 5) stars.
Tomorrow I have dinner/drinks with a friend KS at Nacional 27, I sense another mojito in my future. I haven't been to the gym in a week. I finally downloaded the previous BSG episodes, so I can watch them while on the bike at the gym. I've got 8 days until San Diego, and I've got too much gut to get rid of (I shouldn't have had that big bowl of gnocchi at Carmines today -- we did sit outside today though).
Oh -- I've updated some play lists on my iPod and found myself listening to 1990's Rock (ish) music a lot lately (It's on shuffle, so this isn't the order I chose). Here's my play list. What do you think? Time for me to take off the flannel shirt and cut my hair (and put down that grande cup of coffee)...
