In Topic: The surrealism of everyday life

Yesterday, 10:11 PM

 

 

Two business trips to North Chicago, two crazy ORD situations:

  • Day trip turned into overnight due to T-storms in NYC. Imploring my colleagues to do something rather than suck down margaritas so that we wouldn't be sleeping on the floor of O'Hare.  Managed to snag rooms at Hilton, then needed to buy underwear and such as I hadn't packed anything for an overnight.  Nearly didn't get home the next day thanks to T-storms in Chicago.
  • Hours-long delay thanks to a small electrical fire in the bathroom of the control tower, which occurred right before lunchtime.  Only consolation was getting to see Andre Previn, who was on the plane I eventually wound up on.

 

is Andre still dead?

 

 

Yes, but not at the time of the flight.  :P

Found this morning in my previous dentist's clinical notes about me, which I'm reading for the first time:

 

"Pt has been doing far too much research on the internet and has come up with every bad thing that could happen."

 

Well, is that accurate?  :P

The landscape here is just breathtaking. Great visit. Oh and Marla Bakery was lovely.

 

They have a stand at the Tuesday/Thursday farmer's market at the Ferry Building, which is good for me because I work near there.

Sorry you had all those blips on your first day.  Enjoy your stay and the relative temperate weather!
