Sorry it’s been so long since I posted, but usually when I don’t post for a week or more it’s because I try to make my posts entertaining and I don’t just want to be like most other blog sites and tell you punks what I ate for breakfast for the last few days. Anyway, since I haven’t posted for a while, I have a very assorted group of things to write about.
About a week ago I was at work and Kent IMed me to invite me to the United Center the next day to see the Bulls game. It was sweet! The Bulls pretty much suck, but they actually won! We were courtside so I got some pretty good shots of the players doing their thing. A few days later, I had to drive to several hospitals that were really far away from my house for the company that I work for. It took most of the day because not only were some of the hospitals 2 hours away, but I was driving through a huge storm. I did get a cool shot of the spooky clouds on the way home though. I had to finish up my hospital world tour on Friday in the city so I took cabs all around. I had a few interesting drivers, like one that busted out his newspaper at a stoplight and started reading it. Weird, but whatever.
After that it was Alumni day. That’s the day when college students go back to Deerfield High School and go around to classes and tell the kids what college is *really* like. It was fun to tell kids how fun school is going to be. During my senior year, the school was under heavy construction for the huge new addition to it. I had only seen the new building as a wire frame during the year and I hadn’t been back to school since I graduated, so it was really weird to see all the new stuff. Ed and I went into the new cafeteria for some Bosco Sticks… it’s huge!
After Alumni day, Ed and I went up to Lake Geneva for the weekend. We saw this jacked up van on the way there… never seen one quite like that. We got there and chilled in the hotel pool and made these parents really nervous that we were gonna try to attack their kids or something. We were just tossin’ this little water frisbee back and forth and talking about stuff and these parents were playing with their kids and then they left their kids in the pool and they went in the hot tub. They would not take their eyes off us or their kids… it was hilarious. Anyway, that nite we went and saw Analyze That. I know I usually do a movie review when I see a new flick, but this was just a stupid sequel to the first movie. It was funyn but worthless and unnecessary. Anyway, this guy came out of the earlier showing of the movie and started yelling at these two girls behind the concession counter about how the picture wasn’t that good like THEY could do anything about it, and demanded the supposed $40 he spent on the tickets and food that they bought. This super shady guy got really mad at the guy who was complaining and started yelling at the guy about not swearing in front of young ladies and stuff. The manager came out and kicked the complaining guy out and gave the other guy free passes and food and stuff. That was cool.
The next day was just a little bit different shall we say. We went to this big indoor waterpark as we usually do when in Lake Geneva. We went outside to this little hot tub thing next to the outside pool. It was FREEZING outside and hot under the water so there was steam everywhere… that was really cool. We were again throwing the little water frisbee back and forth and these two little 7 year old girls come up to us and say “can we play?” and we’re like “sure.” So we’re throwing the frisbee back and forth(keep in mind we’re all about 3 feet from each other) and one of them gets in the middle of the triangle and we’re playing monkey in the middle. Then one of them gets the frisbee and SLAMS the other one in the face with it! Needless to say, Ed and I were cracking up so hard we could barely breathe. Once we got the frisbee back, we were tossing it around and the little girl got it again, and once again throws it about 6 inches directly into the face of the other girl. We were laughing SO hard it was ridiculous. I managed to say “Dude, in NO WAY did we initiate this in ANY way shape or form..” and that made us laugh even harder. Then we were like “ok you guys really need to calm down with the whole slamming each other in the face thing.” After a few more tosses, one girl tosses it over the other’s head and then dives both fists forward right into the face of the other one. We were still cracking up because we didn’t expect them to keep doing it but we decided to get outta there because we didn’t want their parents to show up and be pissed at us. Man that was hilarious.
UPDATE: First off, I fixed all the pics in this post, so please go back thru and check em out – they’re great. Anyway, the last part of my current story deals with the journey of me and my boy Colin searching for an underage club in the Chicagoland area. We found this one spot called Studio 21 that was in this town about an hour away from my house – we drove there around 11pm, and after almost getting lost, we finally arrived. The place turned out to be a live Latino dance club/restaurant for hispanic families. It was hilarious… we figured it out as we walked up to the door and some 10 year olds came out with their dad. So weird. Instead we sat in the parking lot of Burger King and ate a ton of food and listened to some Timberlake. It was sweet. Colin and I always have a GREAT time – we’re CONSTANTLY making jokes and just cracking up all the time. He goes to Colorado State (if you remember my post about when I visited him this would make sense) and next quarter he’ll have his car! It’s gonna be great. If anyone from Chicago reads my site and knows of a good underage dance club, let me know. Thanx y’all.
