Elf Time with Grandpa & Izzy!

Totally rad

Last weekend I went snowboarding at Devil's Head with Ken, Josh, and Laura. Of course, there were plenty of hijinx and I planned on writing all about it, but with my lack of internet, the moment has passed. All I can say is that it was great fun until I had a mini-breakdown a la Flo on the Amazing Race. I blame sheer exhaustion and the dread of falling for the 81st time. Ultimately, I decided that snowboarding is quite fun and once my body has recovered, I'm not completely opposed to trying to thrash on the slopes again.

And yes, such things as "I totally biffed it!" were definitely said. We are just that cool.

As promised----

First picture is of my little friend who stopped by the apartment one day while I was watching TV. I laughed. And snapped a photo.

And my big weekend story--- Laura went with me to cross off two items on my 101 list. One was to get a picture taken with Santa. Check! And the other was to go up the Hancock Building. Check Check! Santa was at the top of the building. How convenient! (We went up twice by accident... There's a trick to get up for free which we discovered....) Anyways, to see Santa AND see Chicago at the same time ---before it was clouded over by nasty weather--- was great fun.

By the way, for those of you who have young children... Santas like to flirt. And touch backs. And ask you to be in their band. And hand you their card. Just so you know.

I'm not a big Christmas card sender, so here is my version... 'Tis the season!

I should really get internet...

A quick lunchtime message to let you know that I am still alive. I have a couple of funny photos to post soon and next time I have interenet at the apartment, I'll throw them on. Soon! I promise! And I'll tell you all about my new workout buddy at the gym, how I knocked off a couple of things off my 101 list, and how Ken and I continue to refuse to turn on our heat. Yes, life is that exciting! Stay tuned---
