Chicago, et al

So we just got back from our glorious vacation to Chicago (last year over Christmas, we went to Niagara Falls. I'm all, "Can't we go to Boca Raton or something?") and indeed, it was glorious. As is usual on our vacations, we totally nerded it up. We went to the Field Museum (the Ancient Americans exhibit was pretty fascinating) and the Shedd Aquarium (Seahorses are the only good breed of horse, for real) and this amazing rare/used bookstore in a football-field-sized room in which everything was under 10 bucks. We even caught the Steelers game in the hotel room with BEER WE BOUGHT IN A GAS STATION. For anyone that doesn't live in PA, you have to understand, buying beer in a gas station almost feels like you're putting one over on the man. Seriously. Pictures as soon as I get around to uploading them.

I start school on Monday. I'm actually pretty nervous--I am getting my Master's at the same school I got my BA (Pitt), so going into the bookstore yesterday was a bit of a weirdo throwback. It made me want to...I don't know...compete a case race and vomit all over my roommate, or something. Wish me luck!
