Biograph was where John Dillinger was shot.
The St Valentines Day Massacre was in the garage at Calrk and Belden

When you get some extra time to read (hah! I know) find Barbara Tuchman's March of Folly. She explores 5 or 6 episodes in history where governments took action that could not possibly had a favorable outcome. Most are ancient or historical but she includes VietNam.
She is a good historian and very readable.

So I watched the movie Flight last night. It was really good (and as a random aside, has a really good soundtrack) but made me feel a lot more emotional turmoil than I was expecting.

My friend: "This movie makes me never want to drink again."
Me: "This movie makes me want a drink and a cigarette."

Speaking of alcoholics, Matilda...

At a restaurant waiting for my friend. I ordered wine and actually had a preference as to what kind of Reisling I got. Does this mean I'm becoming a wine snob or an alcoholic? Both?
It does not make you a wine snob. It makes you knowledgeable as to what you like. Riesling can be a very good aperitif. Wine snobs can also be ones who ridicule your choice of wines.

I'll leave the alcoholic part up to you.

i haven't had anyone ask me about famous chicagoans.
i thoguht of somethign else to warn you about... european pillows tend to be smaller and flatter than what we ahve here, so if you are a side sleeper or just need more pillow, bring a pillow case and shove a pair of jeans or a sweater in there to prop you up... that and some anxiety over work left behind left me with some crappy nights sleep...
I don't think anyone asks anymore either, maybe in small towns. I use a memory foam contour pillow so maybe flat is good. Wish I could bring my pillow. Thanks for the info.

I've been calling this the trip of doom. flight cancelled because of dreamliner, train ticket debacle, bad back and big toe. Friend going with has hemorrhoids and a bad knee and no sense of direction. And more. I'm out of here today.

I wish. Barely made it to work as it was. Spent all night wrapped in two comforters shivering yet sweating. And I puked blood this morning. I've had the worst headache I've ever had for the last three days, and my kidneys hurt.
Happy Friday!

See a doctor.
If not a doctor, an urgent care center.
Puking blood and sore kidneys are not good.

Flu or hangover?

Decent segue into: weekend plans, everyone?

My friend L's birthday outing is tomorrow night and it'll be a girls night. Should be fun.
