Angela: So sorry to hear about Mia. I'm keeping her (and you) in my thoughts.

Everyone else: Thanks for the encouragement. Still waiting to hear from Harvard (no, for real) but yeah, I know I have to do it. You just don't say "no" to a full ride ivy league doctorate. You just don't.

Jess: I knew I could count on you to be a cheerleader for NJ. I've driven through a few times, plus the airport, but only on my way to elsewhere, so I can't say anything about it overall good or bad.

Pelly: Doubt I will drive. Done that a few times (cross country) and I don't think I'm up for it. If time/circumstances allow, I will do the train. It stops in Chitown to change trains.

If I do that I would likely schedule an overnight in Chicago and just catch the other train the next day. If I do that I want to see all my Windy City friends.

It stops in St. Paul also.::looking at Angela::

Again, it's a year away.

ok,college basketball fans. CBS has the title game tonight. Why are Charles Barkley & Kenny Smith the analysts? Nothing against them, I think they're great, but doesn't CBS have COLLEGE BBall analysts that they use all season long? Seems like a slap in the face to not use the college bball A-team to do the title game. Would be like Jimmy Johnson, Howie Long, & Terry Bradshaw working the BCS Title game. Wrong, wrong, wrong.

You know, I'd be pretty pissed if I were the college analyst/color announcer and this happened.

...Turned out a very watchable game, tho my team lost...lol...Congrats to Louisville and Patino....I agree about the analysts....ESPN's Colin Cowherd also spoke to the greed of the NCAA, by starting the game at 9:30, on a school night....

Chicagoland might see some snow on Friday. I'm gonna start doing doughnuts in the parking lot while spraying an aerosol can out the window and using an incandescent light bulb. This global warming needs a boost.

Eh, you can do that here if you have a very loose definition of the word "beach" or "city" or "camping".

Beach = rock quarry?
City = Walmart?
Camping = Pop up camper at Walmart?

Do you really trust a man who tells you you are going to get 12 inches tonight?

I see you have a fairly accurate picture of Central Illinois. Have you been?
