No football. :-(

Lots happened this weekend, but one thing that didn't happen was football. For the first weekend since August, there was no football to watch. One of the saddest weekends of the year for me.

Friday I went to my favorite Indian restaurant, Hema's Kitchen. Sadly, it was closed! They closed the entire building down for some reason as I found out. Fortunately, just south of Hema's, across Devon, is my NEW favorite Indian restaurant: Bhabi's Kitchen. Awesome selection of naan (bread) and Bhabi seems to be very detail oriented about his dishes. And it's byob!!

Saturday I went out to see my folks. It was 16 degrees in Chicago when I left and 7 degrees when I got out there. By the time I left, it was 2. Ugh.

Today I ended up playing floor hockey for the first time in years! A buddy of mine and coworker at Morningstar, Adam, is on a team with a bunch of guys who played real hockey in high school. We had fun, but the first string and second string goalies were out, so Adam ended up in net. He did a great job, though we lost 9-4. Imagine if he didn't do a great job!! I scored a goal, had an assist and set a screen, so I was on the floor for three of our four goals. Unfortunately, I was also out there for three of their goals and could have done something about two of them. Well, it's week one for me, so we'll see how I do in the future.


Look at this picture closely. I saw this truck in front of them the other day and snapped the pic.









I bet you see these out West all the time.












This pic was taken at a Starbucks where I met CMU Katie for coffee on Saturday. Haven't seen her in a long time and she's gone through some big changes during that time. It was good to catch up.

Anyway, I LOVE this artwork on the wall. It's ivy in some kind of pressed glass and hung in an homage to Wrigley. The 368 is the distance to left and right center at Wrigley. I'm wondering if it would look good on my exposed brick either downstairs or in the hallway. Anyone know where I might be able to get something like this made? The Starbucks folk think it was done by a Starbucks designer.

There was plenty of football - real football not American football.
