Sleepy in the Windy City

I guess it's better than being windy in the sleepy city...

For me, it's after 2am. But here in Chicago, it's just passing 1am. Funny, that.

I flew in after work today and managed to completely miss supper during the travel. judiang met me in the baggage claim @ O'Hare shortly after I arrived & got my luggage. Then we waited for our chauffeur from Detroit to arrive. Judi and I both agreed that only someone insane would drive to O'Hare, so we're thinking of sending elsaf off for testing. Still, Elsa arrived and we headed on to Judi's apartment.

We unloaded the ingredients for Elsa's latest culinary excursion (for Judi's b-day) and started up the grocery list for things left behind or unavailable at the time. Then, shortly after 10pm, we finally headed off for supper for Trina.

We wound up going to Judi's old neighborhood (which isn't far from her current one) to Hackney's. I had fish & chips, a nice light supper for the post 10pm hour. Yummy! And Judi insisted I have an amaretto sour, so who am I to argue? The girls got gumbo since they'd both already had supper. Neither of 'em could finish it. But I finished my fish & most of my chips.

On our way back, we stopped at Jewel for the groceries we needed. Since Judi had Elsa's car available, she loaded about a month's worth of groceries in addition to what we needed for the weekend. Then we returned home to set up Judi's new wireless router. Thanks to sneakernet, we got the very complex WEP key to all of our laptops. Go us!

Anyhoo, I'm zonked, so will be heading off to bed as soon as I finish this post. Should be a fun weekend with me friends!
