We are off to see the Wizard

Two more days…. I just need to make it two more days and then it’s off to Chi town. Yes I am taking a vacation after being on the job for 1 month. Jealous??? I am nervous about boarding Buddy as this will be our first time away from each other. We will arrive just in time for the fabulous Halloween Parade on Halsted. I am sure there will be plenty of debauchery as well as some fab costumes. After that there will be a lot of relaxing and just kicking back (and by kicking back I mean hanging out in the back room of Touché).

College Football Weekend

We had another weekend of many upsets in the top ten but the highlight of the weekend was the LSU vs Auburn game. My hubby the Auburn fanatic and our good friend the LSU psychofan had a great time talking trash all game long. Hubby was doing most of the trash talking until LSU threw essentially a hail mary pass with 6 seconds left and it was a catch in the end zone(BOO). It was a great game and we had a blast. We are off to the State Fair as this is the last day it will run so maybe they will be giving away some cool stuff. The other half likes to play the kiddie games and then do the dance of joy when he beats them. He does end up giving them the stuffed animal in the end, but not until he rubs their little noses in it that he fills up a balloon with water faster than anyone in the land!

Senorita Boozehound

I need help! My name is Joseph and I am an alcoholic!!!OK, so that is a bit extreme, however I have enjoyed waaay too many cocktails lately, but with good reason. My best friends from Chicago came in for a visit(if you can call someone that leaves you to move to Chicago to become a fountain girl at HoJos your best friend! OK So the job is a little better than that but still) and we celebrated their arrival with one or twelve drinks, darts and great karaoke. The next day was quite a chore and a glass of wine or seven really hit the spot. We then decided that to cure that hangover we would meet our other BFF who is currently selling her turquoise jewelry(and bad advice) on a sidewalk somewhere in New Mexico out for an hour or nine and catch up. All in all the week was eventful and fun and I can't wait to do it all again in a couple of weeks when me and my other half will board the giant penis shaped aircraft (shut up . you know a gay man designed the modern passenger plane. Look at one!) and head out to the windy(rat infested) city. Oprah better lock up Steadman cause here I come.
