Brief Notes from the Weekend

This is my new favorite picture. It's a graffiti tooth.

When I was in Chicago, I...
  • stayed in a hotel with a painted cow statue in the lobby.
  • overheard a homeless man have a seizure in the street below our room window.
  • forgot my coat.
  • just barely made it to the Gogol show because we were running "fashionably late."
  • was given generous doses of whiskey by the bartenders.
  • danced. my. ass. off.
  • went walking by myself around Lincoln Park. it was beautiful until...
  • got lost and took a cab back to the hotel.
  • had the best complimentary breakfast ever.
  • watched the food network.
  • grossed my companions out with sweet potato fries. twice.
  • bought a new coat.
  • burned my mouth with a habanero pepper.
