keep your dirt cool

i found this styrofoam cooler full of dirt at my place of employment yesterday.

man, my job is fucking weird.

as a side note, you may find it interesting to know that i was working with the limited brands yesterday. they own just about every store you see in the mall, such as the limited, bath and body works, and victoria's secret. well, yesterday, i just happened to be wearing a pair of pants from the limited and my only pair of underwear from victoria's secret. wacky.

until yesterday, i didn't even know that those two stores were owned by the same company. could be worse - could be owned by wal mart, i guess.

lions and dragons and bongs

oh my!

today i saw a parade of lions and a dragon down wentworth at the chinatown summer fair.

at one of the booths near one of those blow-up trampoline/jumpy things that are sometimes shaped like houses or castles, this pinata was for sale.

just in case you're wondering, that is the back of shrek's head on the left.

so, what do you suppose you stuff a bong pinata with? do you put your weed in it?

yeah, the kids love that.

i love the bean.

it is so shiny and pretty and big and lovely and reflective.

millennium park is pretty great, even if it is vastly over budget and very late. i'm ashamed to admit that i even kinda like the frank gehry pavillion now... it's not so bad once you get up close. still looks like hell from far away though.

oh, and i think i could watch kids play in jaume plensa's fountain all day - especially when the faces start spitting and scare the shit out of the little sopping wet brats.

would you eat this?

just so you know, the food at the westin o'hare is scary. this is chicken.

it was on my friend jarrell's plate.

dinner also featured wild rice that had the flavor of packing material.

needless to say, we didn't eat much.. but hey - more room for drinks at the paradise of hala kahiki!

get a bike, rod.

today i learned that i'm the governor's neighbor, well, kinda sorta.

i was inspired to do some research when, after a long bike ride up to the bahá'i temple today, (that's the photo from my phone, by the way - creepy pink sky.)
i saw blagojevich jogging down leland avenue, toward damen avenue. that's less than a block away from my house! he was being followed by what appeared to be a plain-clothed state police officer on a bike.

turns out the governor lives in ravenswood manor which is about half a mile west of my place on ravenswood.

of course, after we passed, we thought of all the great things we could've said to him. i wished i'd said, 'get a bike'.

ted says that he wished that he had asked him if he knows barak obama.

what would you have said/asked?

one big dandelion

i found this in andersonville on the way home from the dentist today.

it is about 4 inches in diameter.

i thought to myself, "damn, that's one big dandelion."

i've been remiss in my photo taking for a while...

but i did do this.

so you can amuse yourself with that, i guess.

i did.

oh, also, i uploaded a bunch of stuff that i sometimes need when i'm out of town, and hey, if you happen to need it, i guess you could grab it too. it's stuff like an illustrator cd label, and an action set for photoshop that cleans up photos of whitewalls real good. there are also some mini icons of file types.

there's a link called need it? take it. over there on the right. bon appetit!
