Hey, I ain't got no money but honey I'm rich on personality



There's nothing like winter in Chicago. The sound of the snowplows barreling down the street. The feel of the windchill freezing your runny nose as soon as you open the door. The way the windshield wiper fluid leaves a film on your window as it freezes as you drive.

It's mind-numbing cold. The windchill was TWENTY BELOW ZERO the other day. The bottles for the water cooler froze in the garage. We had a party for the Super Bowl on Sunday and I used the garage like an over-sized refrigerator for storage. I think there's still some cake in there.

Speaking of the Super Bowl, our beloved Chicago Bears lost. We're kinda hard-core fans so we sported the orange and blue facepaint. The Girl wanted rainbows but we settled on "C" (for Chicago)

Bear's fans

Touchdown!
Oh well. Baseball unofficially starts ramping up next week.

Prince was the halftime show and it was surprisingly good. It was pouring rain and he rocked it like it was 1999. That's old school my friends. None of this lip-sync crap with 20 gyrating dancers in the background.

In other news I've had the mother of all respiratory infections. I flew to Iowa last week and I really thought that my lungs were going to collapse on take-off. I'm much better taking care of other people .. I suck at being a patient.

2 posts in a row. I need to go lay down now.

"There's nothing like winter in Chicago." Exactly. And, as a native Chicagoan (who now lives in NYC, I say that's a GOOD thing. :)

Hey, I ain't got no money but honey I'm rich on personality
Agree with you on this line. Personality is far more important than money itself.!!!
