Bullets
    Notes on Yesterday (in no particular order):
  • Yep. Chicago traffic is still terrible.
  • O'Hare is eternally under construction.
  • Stir Crazy would make a killing in Madison.
  • Taking the new job offer may kick me into a new tax bracket.
  • Avoiding I-90 from Rockford to Madison is idyllic towns and blue gill fish fries.
  • Beef jerky shouldn't be laced with that much red pepper.
  • iPods are an addiction... and I want one again.
  • Sanrio is so cute even I could collect all that shit.
  • aetrix9 shouldn't be allowed near Sanrio stores.
  • lady_fox's switch board operator was a ninny.
  • 30in Mac screens.. dude.. so hot.
  • I am not my job.
  • Aetrix's bed and window placement are perfect for under-moon sleeping.
  • Her obese neighbors are stupid amounts of loud at 5am.
  • I may be madly in love with my current state of affairs (pun intended ;))


It was a damn good day. Now, since I'll be in Beloit tonight I require some form of celebration regarding my impending jobiness, even if this just means runnnig around campus naked and full of beer.

I haven't actually been to Stir Crazy. I do really like PF Changs and Big Bowl.

And yes, traffic around here sucks :(

Mesmerizing too. The three of us (me, annan_dum and aetrix9) at the Des Plains Oasis outside O'Hare and watched cars go by for over an hour. We started devising a gambling game based on which car would emerge in which lane ahead of others. We figured this would be the only way to keep entertained while working at the oasis.

What about Sudoku? I thought it could be pretty entertaining.

Actually I had dreams about cars streaming out of my belly last night. Very weird.

I didn't get fresh last night, did I?

How'd you sleep? I slept spectacularly until your neighbors remodeled your ceiling.

I slept terribly well... It was one of those nights where I didn't even realize that I had slept until I woke up.

Aah... We work well together.

Wünderbar. I am pleased.

Stir Crazy has excellent tofu but their spicy sauces are NOT spicy.
justphoenix From: justphoenix Date: October 14th, 2005 01:48 pm (UTC) (Link)
That sucks. I like spicy-I put jalapeno peppers in Kung Pao dishes.

:) I was very saddened by the sauce. I should have went with peanut, though it wasn't listed as spicy so I'd have not been disappionted.

Oh! I had spicy beef jerky in the car... could put that into the dish.

There were some hot peppers in the place where I was getting shitpiles of chopped garlic and ginger.
abmann From: abmann Date: October 14th, 2005 03:57 pm (UTC) (Link)
I didn't want to go back t grab after I'd already been through the line. Had I known before that the spicy sauce wasn't spicy, I would have grabbed some.

abmann From: abmann Date: October 14th, 2005 01:56 pm (UTC) (Link)

zomg, i love stir crazy. also i had my first kiss in a parking lot outside of the one at woodfield after a delightful dinner. so good!
abmann From: abmann Date: October 14th, 2005 03:24 pm (UTC) (Link)
Very cool. I did hae kises outside after dinner but they were not my first. :)

Was it a good first kiss? Full of spicy sauces and wok-made meat flavor? :)

hahaha. that sounds awesomely gross. actually, that same boy was the one who taught me how to use chopsticks, which wants so badly to be a euphemism but it isn't.

Maybe it was because we didn't head as far into the city as I was expecting, but I really didn't think the traffic was all that horrible. I mean, yeah, it was stop-and-go traffic for a little bit there, but when we (I) were (was) hypnotized by the moving traffic under the oasis, it was because it was still moving... And we left the oasis at quarter of 5 and the traffic was moving. I was wholeheartedly expecting traffic where I stopped the car and turned off the engine and we got out and had a weenie roast by the side of the road.
abmann From: abmann Date: October 14th, 2005 03:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ah. Even Chicago traffic rarely calls for weenie roasts.
abmann From: abmann Date: October 14th, 2005 04:01 pm (UTC) (Link)
Oh yeah, go post pictures.

I was actually recently thiking about how Flattop would do really, really well on State Street. It seems very similar to Stir Crazy, I'm guessing.. It's really odd that Madison doesn't have something like that.
