Overheard In The Loop

AKA: Why, no matter how long I live here, I'll never be a Cubs fan.

"Look, Wrigley is a great place to hang out and talk. If there happens to be a game going on, that's a bonus."

Also? Kerry Wood is on the Disable List for a freakin BLISTER!

That's gotta be a really, really, REALLY big blister. Don't you think?

Suck it up you giant baby.

Friday Morning Convo

K: I got your text this morning. Well, that's stupid that they're not running the train (out of O'Hare.) Does this make things extremely hard for you?

Me: No i'm totally cool. (Your) hotel is at Rosemont and that's where the trains are stopping. Track work. Nothing functions properly in Chicago, this city is such a wreck...I'm just going to head your way when I get off of work at 6:30pm and I'll call you when my train is getting close to the hotel.

K: Yay!! I'm doing some housework and watching a documentary on home births. Yikes. I'll tell you all about it later.

Me: Home births? What about dolphin births? Have you heard about those? Birthing with dolphins? I don't think i'd trust a dolphin to deliver my baby. No thumbs ya know.

K: But really supportive clicking sounds.

Why is Neil Patrick Harris the sexiest, singing gay ever?

Two words:

Dr. Horrible.

Have you seen this yet? It's brilliantly funny. Funnier than most of the TV shows up for Emmys and I don't even mind all of the singing! Why? Because it is so hysterically funny and a little bit sad on so many levels I cannot count them all.

So, while you can totally watch Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along-Blog for (gloriously) free on the website, what you should reaaaaaallly do is pay the $3.99 to subscribe to the podcast on iTunes. 'Cause, remember that writers strike way back in last TV season? Yeah, this is the sort of thing they were arguing about. The viability of online content.

Would that my home internets were working (curse you AT&T and all of your technical support minions!) I would gladly pay for all three episodes, and then pay for them again when/if Joss Whedon decides to release them on DVD (please please please please?)

So that's my story and I am sticking to it.

Carry on.

I Know, I Know

"But Jen, where are all of your posts about planning your wedding?"

Well folks, to tell you the truth, I've been a bit busy actually PLANNING the wedding so I haven't really had time to write about it.

I promise I'm working on some entries and I'll post something more substantial sometime soon.

Now I gotta go back to tying ribbons onto invitations.
