So the new year is just around the corner...its still about 40 degrees in Chicago...no blizzards yet. My new year's resolution is to stop stuffing myself with food and sweets...which I have been doing since Thanksgiving (what a typical resolution, huh). Ben's is to quit smoking- which I am happy to be able to say I have successfully quit for about 2 1/2 months now. Neither of us have been full fledged smokers in a while though, so its a good time to give it up.
Still working at the chocolate place...and still don't know my way around for the most part. I told Ben today that I am going to plaster a big Chicago map on the bedroom wall so that I can memorize it.
We saw a pink VW Bug yesterday that was a pig and was oinking out holiday music- not sure why...
Matty and Ben O. (Ben's buddies) are coming over tonight, so we'll probably go out with them. Then, for New Year's the transit is free (Ben insists its a penny a ride), so we plan on party hopping, being drunk on the train and bus,hopefully with Rowley and Michelle and some other folks.
We went to Ikea earlier in the week, which was a huge mistake. The place is fucking enormous, and way visual overload/chaotic. The floor also shakes, and we were getting kind of motion sickness. We hit a massive traffic jam on the way home to top it off. I am never shopping at Ikea again. We did pick up a coffee table, a coat rack, and a dresser for Ben. So, our apartment is lookin pretty snazzy.
That's it for now.
