Excuses, excuses...

Y'all, I had great plans for this week's blog post, but they've thus far come to naught. I won't bore you with a litany of excuses as to why ('cause I hate that shizz when other folks do it). The week got away from me and that's that. Forgive.

I'm currently in Chicago for a day-job thing. Part 1's been sorted, Part Deux takes place tonight, and then I'm off to Saint Paul, MN on Tuesday. Flying exhausts me, and the Xanax I take so as to NOT flip out on the plane exhausts me more, despite the copious quantities of caffeine I consume when I'm back on terra firma. I'd thought I might be able to compose the blog post in my hotel room Sunday night, but alas, no. It's just too much for me right now.

I go off to bed, wrapped up in self-loathing for my failure to produce*, and leave you with some pics of one of the towers in Millennium Park's Crown Fountain (as well as a teaser for an upcoming blog post).

And the teaser...

*I'm mostly kidding about the self-loathing. Mostly.


  1. so you will be ordering a self-loathing wrap over breakfast? Tis a nice enough blog post and the pics are interesting - funny I have always thought that flying around thing would be glam - not so much now :)

  2. I'm not a good flyer - luckily I only do it rarely. Those pictures are great.

  3. Love it, a blog post about not producing a blog post - and so well done! Love the pics and am intrigued by the teaser! Have a safe trip and hope you are home soon!

    I'm a horrible flyer!

  4. Hey, no beating yourself up! It's all good. Relax. I hate flying too. Not so much the flying per se, but the claustrophobia and the extreme irritation with the rudeness of other passengers. I take valium and martinis for my issues ;-)

  5. I hope you get to do some sightseeing or something in your off time. Have a safe trip!

  6. Great shots! And I haven't blog produced in a couple of weeks, either!

  7. Beautiful pictures! I hope you have a fantastic trip!,



  8. @David - LOL! I'm not worthy of such a wrap.

    @Annalisa - You're incredibly kind to say so. :-)

    @Yolanda - Thanks, love - I'm back in NY but flying again next week!

    @Tina - Thanks, doll. That's a mighty potent Rx! ;-)

    @JoJo - GAH, these pics looked SO much nicer on my camera phone. I cringe now as I look at them, knowing you'd take GORGEOUS pics of the tower!!! I did get to do a bit of something, which I'll post about anon.

    @Rocky - You're in good company, sir!

    @Valerie - Thanks, lady!


C'mon, post a comment. All the cool kids do.
