And…we made it. Unfortunately, exhaustion last night caused me to pass out early, fully clothed and with glasses still on, thus preventing a post. My posting streak since November 1 has been broken, and I’m okay with that. Mostly. I was too tired last night to really care.
It is freaking freezing here, somewhere around 10 F. Once it’s below freezing, the actual temperature really doesn’t matter, it’s just damned cold. My handy dandy local weather toolbar tells me that it’s -2 in Denver right now. We’re all miserable. The difference is that in Denver, 100 year old records are being smashed. Here, it’s just Monday.
We broke up the drive in from Des Moines yesterday by stopping at the new Legoland Discovery Center west of the city. And I was reminded why I won’t return to Legoland in San Diego. If you’re an adult, not for you. If you’re a teen or tween, not for you. If you’re a boy celebrating your 8th birthday, totally for you, have a ball, we’ll see you in a few hours, no you can’t have the $500 Lego Millenium Falcon.
(We interrupt this post for lunch. A Chicago hotdog, no bun, fries and a diet coke. Urp.)
This week will be a whirlwind of museums, food you can only get in Chicago (see aforementioned hotdog), and the music convention I’ll be attending at the end of the week.
There was more, but WordPress apparently no longer does automatic backups and it already ate half this post. So instead I’ll take a wee break and enjoy a cookie from the gluten-free bakery down the way from my parents’ house.
