First Week in Chicago

I've been in Chicago a week already. I'm settled into my room (and the bathroom and the garage) in Happy Time Harry and Stellar's house in a quiet northern suburb. I haven't been doing much of anything productive except catching up on my sleep and cruising Craiglist. Next week I plan on being more active. I may even start exercising again, but that may be a little too ambitious. I should probably just stick to finding a job.

I had an extensive tour of the city proper given by Shayne and Robb. I can't even remember all of the places and neighborhoods we visited, but it was a lot of fun just to walk around and see and hear what the city has to offer.

And I've already visited "The Bean" in Millennium Park, so I'm almost a full-fledged Chicagoan now. All that's left is for me to eat a Chicago dog, enjoy a deep-dish pizza, and develop a love for one of the baseball teams and a hatred for the other. I'm practically in.


  1. Just for baseball reference...


  2. Has anybody told you that you remind them of jason castro? I want a Jason Castro doll, Zach!

  3. anonymous, I believe you have me confused with someone else. My name is Mr McBastard.

    If you're going to get my name wrong at least call me Josh.

  4. I don't have you confused with're Zach and the other guy is Jason Castro...everytime I saw Jason Castro perform...the nuances of his facial expressions...his good natured grin, the shape of his eyebrows and the twinkle in those smokey eyes reminded me of you...I guess God only makes so many yours by God is a damned good one so why wouldn't it be repeated on another very talented (albiet musical talent) young man! I may be anonymous but reality is that I'm your mother who from day to day can't remember her user name and password for this flippity gidget blog
