Friday night MK had a grill party at his place. Since my drive through endless construction got me there about two hours late I basically downed two hamburgers within minutes of getting there. I was hungry! But I have no photos of my hamburgers. :( I do have a photo of some hot dogs: We flipped between the Cubs and the Sox and both teams won. And MK made lots of drinks. And I invented the best drink ever: vodka and pickle juice: The seeds floating in there totally enhance it. And Scott played the piano...

1. I realized that we've been hanging out for a year now. And haven't fought or cried. I think that is a record for us getting along by about 11 and a half months. 2. FYI, a giant road sign that says "Driving distracted is both unsafe and irresponsible" is kind of distracting. 3. Note to self: do not store carrots and crackers in the same container. It will end badly. 4. This morning was one of those mornings that made me think that I shouldn't get out of bed. First I broke my favorite jeans. Then my CTA pass...

1. I went to Trader Joe's on Saturday. I spent $40 and figured out that it would make a grand total of 13 meals. Which is pretty awesome. Of course, that means I am eating chicken stir fry three times, chicken pizza twice, cheese/crackers/fruit three times (for work lunches), pasta three times, and mushroom bites twice. But it's economical. My best find was a bag of multi-color frozen pepper strips. Because I am not a big fan of peppers but I like a little in my stir frys and this gives me three different peppers that I only need to...

1. Why do I always look like crap when I see the cutest guy ever? Answer: because I almost always look like crap. 2. Did I ever mention how much I love guys with curly hair? Love it. 3. Last night I had Ian's Chicago hot dog pizza. It was pretty tasty and I didn't even douse in ketchup! 4. I actually wore a dress yesterday that was not over jeans. Today I am back to the dress over jeans. (Yes, I know, my fashion style is so mid-nineties.) 5. When I get married I am getting registered at the Foodie Registry. 6. THERE'S GOING...

1. In case I didn't get enough bacon at Baconfest on Saturday, on Monday I made some bacon-wrapped shrimp with the bacon I bought. :) 2. These are some awesome photos of water drops I took at Monday's location lighting class. 3. Like how now that my blog is redesigned I am back to blogging way more? 4. So I was supposed leave for Texas on Thursday and that is certainly not happening :( I need to reschedule something. And then actually plan it. There is a gyro eating contest in Houston next month...

1. I have managed to cancel all of my travel plans for this year. 2. Tonight I went to see Mat's improv show. Then we got Taco Bell. 3. The other day I made wiener schnitzel. I was excited that it came out on my first try ever. :-) 4. No Idol updates for the week. Michael Lynche got kicked off but then the judges "saved" him so he's back this week. 5. Last night Mat and I got drinks at the Shire. He's been wanting to go forever because the name reminds him of Lord of the Rings. The waitress took our...

1. STOP THE WORLD. My mutual funds, for the first time in three years, have more money than my initial investment! 2. Sunday night I went to see Mat's 5B improv performances at io. Some of the people were good, some horrible. There was this one guy though who is frickin insane. Towards the end he got on the piano switched to organ and rocked an amazing preacher act. Amazing. Afterwards I stuck around for U Who? (Middle Aged Comeback) and 3033. The first show was hilarious because there was this adorable little girl who kept making this weird laughing/crying noise....
