I'm jealous of the two of them

My best friend, a Boulder native, is at the ballpark tonight. Watching his Rockies play the Padres. Guess who is pitching. Yes, my beloved future Hall of Famer, Greg Maddux.

Tonight two of my favorite men leave me feeling left out.

I have the strength of 10 and cannot be vanquished!

A group of coworkers and I wandered over to the Taste of Chicago at lunchtime and I am proud to report that I walked right past the booths that tempted me with familiar fare. No Robinson's rib tips or Billy Goat cheez-borger/cheez-borger for this Gal. Not today.


Skewered shark veracruz (or "shark on a stick," as we like to call it) was the feature at The Polo Cafe booth, and I went for it. It tasted like just about any other baked fish with a chunky tomato sauce and capers, but that's not the point.


I'm a wee bit burpy but still proud of myself. I am a true lunch time adventuress!

Manic Monday #14

What sound or noise do you love? A cat purr.

What sound or noise do you hate? You know the sound when you assemble a brand new moving box? The way the cardboard sounds against the cardboard? I get goosebumps just thinking of it. I may stay in my condo forever, just to avoid that noise.

What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Pet sitter.

What profession would you not like to do? Food service.

This kinda reminds me of that survey from the end of Inside the Actor's Studio on Bravo. Except it's missing the question about God -- "If Heaven exists, what would like to hear God say to you at the Pearly Gates?" My answer to that would be, "Hi, Honey. Welcome!"
