Sunday was Wednesday Lunch at Murphy’s. You heard me.

A bunch of us met there for lunch. In a nice coincidence Murphy’s is also celebrating their 40th anniversary this year!

I got a bacon cheeseburger but in retrospect I do not think there was any bacon on it. LAME. It was still delicious.

A ton of the Wednesday lunchers/KCSAers showed up and it was awesome to keep catching up!

Jeff showed up! I was happy because I never see Jeff and it was the first time I got to see him that weekend! AND he gave me a copy of Horsemen of the Esophagus (affiliate link) which he found at a used bookstore. Jeff kind of rocks.

Sid just got a new waterproof camera. He decided that, obviously, the best way to test out if it was, in fact, waterproof would be to drop it in a mug of beer and chug it. Obviously.

It was actually pretty awesome. And he has some video and he posted it to Facebook and hopefully I can get him to put it on youtube or something so I can post it here…

We stayed until the end of the insane Bulls game which went into double overtime. How does that one dude even play with that much hair?

And then it was time to say goodbye and end the gluttonous festivities of our KCSA reunion weekend. It was a fun weekend of catching up with old friends and reliving old times. Hopefully it won’t be another 40 years until we can do it again 🙂

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.

    Man I miss Murphy’s beer glass day. I’ll have to hit that place up next time I go to Champaign.
