There He Is

Standard

Old Man Winter has been MIA here in the Windy City over the past few months. I mean, in Winter 2010, the Puffy Coat came out Dec. 9 and didn’t leave until March. Winter 2011, the coat made its first appearance at the Holiday Party night (Dec. 11), but that’s only because I knew my date would wear a long, black, wool coat and I didn’t want us to match. But since that night, the coat’s hung in the closet waiting for its permanent rotation.

Well look who’s coming off the bench now as Old Man Winter brutally slaps us across the fact with wind and cold temps. Mild winter, it was nice while it lasted. The “feels like 7” bit down there makes me loathe our wind tunnel we’ve got going on between our buildings and the lake. There’s only a few times in the year I despise living by the lake. And those times happen from January-March.

 

Auld Lang Syne

Standard

Just like Harry from When Harry Met Sally, I’ve never really figured out what this song means. Each time I listen to it, depending on my mood, it’s a different message. But one thing’s certain, this version is by far my favorite. Cheers to a fantastic 2012.

My Next Gig

Standard

It’s no secret that I love volunteering. And I especially love volunteer events where I have a high potential of meeting a boy. Or ones that reap serious benefits, like partying with Edward Burns. Or ones that pertain to things I enjoy immensely.

Alas, the mega one has landed. And next year, after seeing the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 in the Summer, visiting the theme park in Florida, I will head to NYC for the International Quidditch World Cup to volunteer.

Yea, you read that right. There’s an International Quidditch World Cup. And it’s in NYC. Which means that I could potentially catch the real Harry Potter in his Broadway show when I’m there.

I just became infinitely more excited for 2011. Despite the fact I’ll turn 26 (woof).
