One of those days

So I woke up for the final time after a sweeps-week mini-series of surprisingly gory nightmares that woke me up every hour for seven hours to find that the Sun-Times turned into the New York Post (and I mean that as a compliment) because Blagojevich is calling out Mayor Daley who is in turn calling out Jody Weis for an increase in violence in the city. The temperature breaks 90 for one day and everything goes off the rails.

Also: What Are You Doing for Chicago 2016, Citizen?:

"Plans have yet to be finalized, but officials are considering a more dramatic lighting show [for Buckingham Fountain] that would coordinate with lighting installed along Congress Parkway. They're also debating between new lamps that show sharper colors and the yellowish, more romantic hues of the current lights [Ed. Note: Read that sentence again, it's pretty awesome].

The added flash and flourish is meant to draw more visitors and impress the panel of International Olympic Committee experts scheduled to visit in the spring."

For my part, I took a shower this morning and scooped the litter box.
