I turned 26 yesterday! This week has been pretty filled with friends and demi-adventures. We went to a White Sox game 3 days before one of their pitchers threw a perfect game. We got terrible directions basically all over Chicago. Hey Chicagoans! Quit assuming everyone walks around with a compass! I ain’t no boy scout!
Other than that, we fiercely spectated at the Warrior Dash out in Joliet. It was the second time I’ve stayed with good friends in a town that houses a federal prison. Fitting, since Doug is such a miscreant.
We basically ran through room after room of taxidermied animals at the Field Museum and came home exhausted, which is the only way to come home from vacation, really. Good thing I took the whole week off.
Yesterday for my birthday I hung out all day, bought the The State DVDs and a couple of CDs and played Settlers of Catan with Kyler and Jesse and Osiris. I won. Today actually marks the third day in a row I’ve played that game. I’ve won 3 out of 5 games, I think, which basically makse me the Biggest Dog. At least at a nerdy game about sheep and ore.
All in all, vacation is good and I love birthdays in general but especially my own. This has been a good one.
