Last week was interesting. Or interesting enough.
Chris is officially “over the hill” now. Old fart. We honestly didn’t do anything special for his birthday, but he did take the entire week off, so it was good to have him around. We did almost nothing but we did nothing together, and that.. really was nice.
I got couple of tickets for Bad Religion show for him. I know, it’s kinda lame birthday gift – because if I didn’t get them, I’m sure he would have gotten them himself.
Then on Saturday, we decided to go to Chicago. Actually, the original plan was to go on Friday and spend a night, then there was minor fiasco: we had no running water in the morning! Then when it came back on later in the afternoon, the hot and cold were reversed (which, thankfully eventually turned back normal). That was not fun, at all. So in any case, instead of having an overnight trip, we made it into a quick day trip. (And of course, the weather was gorgeous on Friday but it was really foggy and rainy on Saturday.. go figures)
We mainly went to see Katie’s “new” condo. But then we also went to the Field Museum. I mean, why not – she lives right by it. And of course, I saw Sue the T Rex. You can’t not see the dinosaur! (and hooray for double negative)
By the time the museum “kicked” us out, the sky cleared up. That was pretty nice. And even though I didn’t get to go this time, I got to see the Navy Pier from distance. I love Navy Pier, I have always liked to sit there and watch the lake, and if we had time, I totally would have went there. Again, it’s pretty funny how (and why) I was so excited to see Lake Michigan even though I see it everyday, through my windows. I “do” live by the lake, and I mean the very same Lake Michigan. Same pond, just different angle.
Anyways, other than the museum, we went out for a brunch in the area, then went some bar in Wrigleyville but meh, nothing exciting. Didn’t get to do much since we were running on a tight schedule.
But nontheless, it was fun. I love Chicago.
