Wait... she's gone? Going? What?

So, one of the things about my new job is that I cut across that big plaza at Michigan and Lake every morning and every afternoon. So I got used to seeing the hung-over looking Michelle Leigh standing outside to do the weather. And now her contract isn't being renewed or something.

Scratch got into a habit of watching the Fox Chicago news every morning about a year ago. I never was one for watching TV in the morning, because mornings are not leisurely for me during the work week, and watching TV is, to me, a leisurely activity. If I start, I can't stop. My one impression of Michelle's work is that she had tousled hair, the "hoarse yuppie chick" voice (like she'd been smoking Marlboro Lights and shouting to her friends over the din of some Dave Matthews at a bar in Lincoln Park) and gave a decent idea of what the weather would be like that day.

Who knew she was a local treasure that is now being taken away from us? Me. I'm so out of the loop, even when I'm working "in the loop" har har.

I Love Hate, and I Hate Everything Else!

Once upon a time, that was a slogan for a comic book. Yes, I'm a nerd.

But anyway. There is this blog/site called Five Things I Hate. You can email the moderator five things you hate, and the owner will post them. Your name is not tied to it, but if you know me, you probably can tell which contribution I sent in.

Anyway, if you want to get your hate on, Hater, email this person.

In Other News

We had a great weekend! We picked up the grill we bought, and Scratch put it together. The happy prediction is that cleanup will be easier now that the cooking's being done sans pans. Then... we went out... to a bar... with... friends on Saturday. Big outing for us! It was fun. Then, we went to the Bulls game Sunday, which was tons of fun, even though the Skiles Face isn't as clear from the 300 level. Still, I have a connection with Senor Skiles. I just know it. Go Bulls!

Do you know you can buy "the mango" all peeled and sliced at Costco? Totally worth it. Mmmmm. Mango.

I was going to post something about going to work tomorrow downtown, and how I don't really think that the big march will affect me in any way, but since I have nothing important to say about the march, its organizers, or its cause, I will just leave it at "I am going to work tomorrow." Whatev.
