The Targo and I are working half days today. Because it's totally baseball season! This is our first game this season, because the White Sox game we were scheduled to go to was cancelled due to cold. Sissies.
My beloved Cardinals are coming to town to play the Cubs... the dreaded rival! It should be fun. And also? It's supposed to be in the 60s (but cooler by the Lake). Generally, I'm not the biggest fan of Wrigley Field. In my neighborhood, that's like saying "I'd like to shoot Santa Claus." But, it's old, falling apart, and smells really bad.
Last Friday, the Targo and I went to a meet-up with other Cardinals fans. Heh. Unfortunately the game was rained out, but we did meet some really nice people who were recently transplanted from St. Louis. One was a self-proclaimed crazy cat lady. She had pictures of her kitties on her cell phone. For the record, I don't. My phone just doesn't do the kitties justice.
That's another one of my favorite things about Chicago: that you meet people from everywhere. In our close circle of friends, people are from Illinois, Missouri, California, Michigan, Colorado, Korea and Hong Kong. I'm just sayin' in my little hometown... totally not like that.
And also? Did you all see that Chicago is the U.S. representative bidding for the 2016 Olympics? (I know that was so last week, but whatever.) I can't even tell you how cool I think that is! Have any of you been to the Olympics?
