Do you ever have one of those nights out that by the time you get home, looking back, it feels like parts of it happened days ago and not just hours ago? Saturday was one of those nights. I mean, I guess this feeling was helped by the fact that my night out was actually more like over 25 hours out. But still. I met up with Chelsa and Tabitha and co. around 11am, coffee in hand. It was going to be a long day...

one. So I don't watch the Office. I mean, I love it every time I see it but I don't watch it regularly and have maybe seen about ten episodes. But I watched the wedding. And cried. And cried. And once he cut off his tie I was pretty much GONE. two. I hate when people say things about your life that you know are true but you just don't want to believe. three. What's worse than waiting for someone to call? When you're waiting for someone to call and your phone is out of batteries and therefore vibrates every two minutes. four. Guys take note. Pink...

one. I found out last night that Robot Chicken is not about a chicken and Aqua Teen Hunger Force is not about aquatic teenagers. two. Saturday morning around 8am the gay couple upstairs were having a very loud fight. Again. I heard I giant thump of something hitting the ground. I heard something being dragged across the floor. Then about half hour later I heard a very long zipper closing noise...

Val (seeing the title "Ocean's 11" on the TV screen.): which movie in the series is this? I mean, I know there were multiple Oceans movies. Which one is this? Mat: Well there was Ocean's 11, 12, and 13. But this is the original movie that those were based on. Val: Oh. Is it just me or do my conversations sound terribly too close to Jessica Simpson's? After the Millennium Park concert I met up with Mat who was just finishing up work a few blocks away. We grabbed dinner and then tried to head back to his place on the blue line. Which...

Every year Lyric Opera presents a big free concert in Millennium Park. I always have to work it, usually helping at the info booths and whatnot. This year we decided to try something different. My sneaky plan of posting vacation photos all around my desk to show what a great photographer I am paid off and they let me run around the park with my camera to take photos of the crowds to post directly to Facebook as the show went on! That way the people listening on WFMT at home had something to follow along with! The plan went off...

1. Today stared longingly at every guy I saw and contemplated whether one of them could be the love of my life. I stared at the guy at Starbucks and told him how excited I was that I was ordering a pumpkin spice latte. I stared at everyone on the el and on the street. I stared at the hot guy who works at Whole Foods. I stared at Eric and MattS. I told Eric and Matt that I don't think either of them is the love of my life. Eric complained that I was staring at the back...

Sunday night Heather and I met up with Alyssa and went to Wicker Park Fest. We played with some random dogs, listened to music, drank (Alyssa beer, me sangria, and Heather nursed a hangover), met Batman, ate (I just had sweet potato fries), and played half-assed hipster bingo (we spotted some nice ironic mustaches and a lot of fedoras). I determined that my usual theory that a hot camera can make a guy look hotter did not apply to Wicker Park Fest for some reason. Then we tried to go to the bar I've wanted to go to but it was closed...
