Drove all the way from the NW side of the city to Woodridge (Seven Bridges Ice Arena) to watch a game at 840am only to find out it's actually at 840pm. Not how I wanted to start my day. Should've been suspicious in the first place at an 840am weekend start time for a Midget game.

Blue Liner, that absolutely blows. At least you're close to Naperville, though, with plenty to do there (not sure on Woodbridge myself). That is if you didn't just turn around and go home.

I just headed back. My dad and stepmom are coming into town and I'm picking them up from the O'Hare at 1 and then finishing up my Christmas shopping after that. Just figured I'd head home. Had to send a few emails and texts because I was supposed to speak to a few people before and after the game. Just an annoying inconvenience and stupid screw-up on my part. Oh well. Was going to attempt to get back to sleep for a couple hours but no go.

Please don't mention Christmas shopping. Haven't even started with my 2 sisters or mom yet.


Although I'll be bringing whatever I get them up on January 2nd, so have a few extra days. Don't have a clue what to get them, though.

Back home in Champaign for the long weekend, so enjoying some badly needed relaxation.

I love being able to cook because my gift to everybody is pastries and cookies and cakes.

no. but why are you trying to dump them?

another question to tap into the male crowd...i was skyping w/ my cousin's girlfriend tonight (b/c i was supposed to be in chicago for christmas, and won't be so we were catching up blah blah blah). they're both in their early 20s...i get the feeling she wants to talk to me about "something" and finally she tells me she thinks cousin in question was cheating on her most of the summer...she's upset about it, thinking about breaking up with him etc. now, i'm pretty sure he was...but that doesn't matter, family first, etc. - and i just say (honestly) he'd never discuss that sort of thing w/ me ... go talk to him. my question is, do i mention to him that i think she's on to him - or just say nothing. i think it's "say nothing" b/c (1) he never talks to me about that sort of stuff, it would be awkward; and (2) it's not my business.

...at the same time...i think he's kind of been a jerk to her the last 6 mos. so feel like telling him she's suspicious so hopefully he'll clean up his act or dump her so they can both move on...but, again, it would be a weird conversation - and i suspect i just need to mind my own business.

amirite?

I don't have nearly enough experience to prove you right or wrong, but I can say you made the right decision coming here and not the Lounge, where the answer is always: Post '95.

I completely forgot about this until now. Last night I had an insane dream that the Hawks boards was a big family. BWC was the tall, awkward, computer-savvy cousin, DGHF was the scary uncle with a 5:00 shadow sitting in the corner with a Coors light, RayP was the awesome rich cousin we all have, Cullk was the popular high school kid, and I was in a cage.

yeah, that's my thought. said cousin is 23 - even for his age, the behaviour i've heard of is a little gross - but he's my family member...and we actually get on fairly well.

as the adult - i want to yell at him he should just cut the gf loose - b/c i think he'll end up hurting her badly. but it is what it is...and i agree i should stay away. i already know i'd never say anything to her - i'll just leave aside saying anything to him.

I'd actually prefer a good Italian beef if I had the option. It's been forever since I've had one. Can't wait to get up there next week.

I love living near Chicago because there is good Italian beef everywhere. Portillo's and Tony's are my personal favorites.

Portillos is my favorite fast food by a mile...and I worked there when I was a kid in the late 80s. But I usually get the cheeseburger. Best cheeseburger anywhere that I know of.

Been talking to my ryla family all day today so I'm in a great mood despite my parents fighting and yelling at me all morning (gotta love the holidays -_\\\ )

Were having a reunion on Thursday and I'm so excited! I miss em so damn much and I can not wait to see them. Its just gonna be our cabin too so I won't be surrounded by strangers and feel kinda awkward (though ryla is about stepping out of your comfort zone). I'm so damn happy right now.

Oh and Christmas is tomorrow. So I have to go last minute shopping. *sigh*
