Asta 2

'House' and Home

I'm back home. I've actually been back home since very late Monday night, but between work (don't ask) and catching up on sleep and other stuff I haven't been very active online. I've done a lot of skimming and believe I am all caught up on your lives.

Chicago was awesome. Just a wee bit windy and chilly on Thursday when writteninstars and I arrived. I managed to get sick during The Decemberists concert that night, but I'll spare you the details. I don't think it was the bands fault. ;)

Starting on Friday the weather was beautiful and lasted until we left. Much shopping was done though I managed to restrain myself from buying too much. I kept thinking about Illinois 9% sales tax to Michigan's 6%. And spent several hours at the Art Institute looking at some marvelous works and some others that made me debate what constitutes art. In addition to hanging out with my dear, mostly sweet writteninstars I got to spend some quality time with x_h00ine, her hubby mr_booze, lynnb, and dragonfly0303.

Did I mention the chocolate buffet? Yes, there was a chocolate buffet at the Penninsular Hotel and apparently there is a limit as to how much chocolate I can eat.

I am waaaaay behind on TV having not yet seen Ugly Betty, Heroes or Doctor Who and thank you friends list for being so good about cut-tags. I did catch House last night and have a few thoughts on that. Collapse )
