1. Today I was on standby for jury duty but luckily I did not have to go!
2. I dragged JoeJoe into my insanity today by letting him accompany me to the Taste for lunch.
3. Despite the fact that I have millions of things to do I went over to MK’s to watch Top Gear tonight…of course, I ended up just bringing my laptop and working the whole time…I have no idea what went on in that episode…

I don’t feel like making another post today, so I’m just adding to this one. I have discovered that the absolute maximum anyone can make it to the Taste of Chicago is 8 times. Between the rain and the 3 hours of sleep I’m working on I just couldn’t make it after work. So here’s my little lunch, and my last taste of the year:
Steak Burger with Blue Cheese and mustard sauce (Tutto Italiano), Hand-cut Sweet Potato Fries (Hashbrowns)
