Sick Again

Well I’ve managed to get myself sick again! I suppose I ran myself ragged this past weekend and I’m coming down with another cold. I need someone to take care of me…. Related posts: Sick Again I’m Sick! Feeling Sick Sick

Should I have Asked Senator Paul Simon about Senator Lott?

At the Messiah event, sitting 2 Boxes away from us was former Illinois Senator Paul Simon. He is now a professor at Southern Illinois University. As I saw him in the hallway after the event, I wanted to go up and introduce myself. More importantly, I wanted to ask him what he thought of Senator Trent Lott’s recent comments at Senator Strom Thurmond’s 100 birthday party. But I resisted the temptation. After taking part in such a festive event, I didn’t want to ruin it by talking about politics. But I still can’t believe Senator Lott made those bigoted comments. […]

Do-It-Yourself Messiah

Just got back from the 27th annual LaSalle Bank Do-It-Yourself Messiah at Civic Opera House Chicago. Composed in 1741 by George Frederic Handel, The Messiah is a large scale piece for orchestra, chorus and soloists.

Nonetheless, it was good to take part in this holiday tradition with 3 other good friends. It definitely helped me get more into […]

I use to think it only applied to things in my past I didn’t want to remember, but I’m now having my doubts. In talking to one of the people at the party who was a huge hockey fan, I mentioned that I went to […]

Feast or Famine

Tonight I’ve got three holiday parties to attend. The first is a dinner party being hosted by a friend I met at Fourth Presbyterian Church . The other two are hosted by friends of another friend. It should be interesting to see if I really make it to all three. I’m so tired already. Gosh and it’s not even Christmas yet. Hmm, why do the holidays have to be so jammed packed? I like all the social events; I just wish they were spread out more. Come February, I’ll have nothing exciting to do. But hey, who’s complaining? NOT ME!! […]
