Well, I haven't posted in a while. It's been an interesting (not good interesting) couple of months. I can't talk about most of it, unfortunately. To put it concisely, when I started my current job I was told I couldn't talk about work online.
The rest of this post rambles a little. I'm a little out of practice.
I've been averaging about a baseball game a week so far this season. It turns out you can get a little burned out after a while. I went to the Cubs game yesterday (6/21) and I had a pretty good time, but I wasn't into the game like I usually am. Jonnell had to yell at me a few times to stop playing with the iphone. I am going to the White Sox - Dodgers game on Thursday and I'm bringing my camera with to warm up for our vacation next week.
Speaking of the vacation, I really can't wait to get out of town for a while. Much to my surprise, Jonnell has figured out how to turn a trip to Texas Hill Country into a wine tasting trip. I am a little skeptical, but since I am dragging her to two baseball games I can try some Texas wine. There was an interesting story about Texas wineries in yesterday's Tribune.
My other goal is to eat either barbeque or chicken fried steak on every day of the trip. And never go to the same place more than once. I haven't had a 'real' CFS in a long time. Back when my parents lived in Houston, we went out to eat somewhere and I ordered the 'king sized' CFS. It was great but I think I had enough leftovers for two days of lunches.
I'm really looking forward to checking out some small towns on the trip. I think it's because I live downtown. Need to spend some time where there are a lot less people. Looking forward to driving everywhere, too. Taking public transit gets old, I took six buses and two El trains this weekend. I was on all of those trains and buses for around 15 miles of travel, which took over an hour of time, not counting the 45 minutes or so of waiting for them.
Be back soon with my review of the new movie Moon. Don't watch the trailer - too many spoilers!
