Will Spring Be Springing?
In preparation for the major CTA crap that is supposed to start in April, I decided yesterday to try a bus-only route home.
Pros of the Bus:
Bus stop right outside of work
It takes Lake Shore Drive for a good portion
Seats seem plentiful on the route I need
If anything happened, I'm not afraid to jump out of the bus window.
Second bus drops me 2 blocks closer to home than Kimball el station.
Cons of the Bus:
Waited 15 minutes for the bus (I must have just missed the last one.)
After it gets off Lake Shore Drive, it meanders through a bunch of neighborhoods until I get off at the end of the line.
I have to wait for a second bus after that.
It's the bus.
I got home about 15 minutes later than usual - if I had caught an earlier bus, who knows, it may have been a wash. Oh and by the way do you give a crap about my daily commute? I thought not.
Scratch got us some Lollapalooza tickets. If the lineup has bands I like, I will go. Otherwise I will encourage Scratch to go with a friend. I have a feeling this is going to be a busy summer, and so I don't like committing to anything. I have never been to a lollapalooza. I remember the first one down in Tinley Park, I think I had to work or couldn't afford tickets. So I got all "Lollapalooza sucks!" to compensate for the fact that I was too broke to go. I've never looked back.
OK here is looking for a nice weekend! Don't step in any thawed-out dog turds!
i went to lollapalooza in tinley park once. it was the year sinead was there. bring sunblock, i got burnt up to a crisp! newt wants to go to warp tour this year. he has been the last 2 years without me. it always seems to degenerate to people fighting in mud, which doesn't appeal to me.
wish i could have gone to chicago when i was in IL, even for a layover visit! next time!
