Fun things in my neighborhood

So my printer is still not…well printing┬ábecause I did not know that I needed a USB cord to make this work and of course it was not included in the box. So tomorrow I will be heading to the Apple Store to get one and rectify this situation since Best Buy thinks $30 for a cord is “reasonable.” But dad did replace the string on the light in my closet, so I no longer have to use a flashlight when digging for clothes. So that is a plus.

And even though I did a 4.5 mile walk this morning, I decided to walk back from Best Buy (but with a Bobtail smoothie to make it manageable) and found the below billboard. Actually Ryan and I saw it last night and found it hilarious, but my Baby Buddha needed to get home and in the fridge so I couldn’t take a picture of it then. I find it amusing, mostly because I swear like a trucker.
May officially starts this week too and wedding mania really picks up so there is plenty of good material coming up :)

    Meg that was hilarious. I seriously laughed really hard out loud. I’m glad I’m not the only one who finds that stuff funny.

    There’s a construction sign near my house that was vandalized and now says, “Slow down, my mammy works here! Thanks, Booby!” It makes me laugh every time because I like to say Booby.

    Oh man, I haven’t been to Bobtail since last summer.

    The craving has begun…

    wow that is quite a walk. Sounds like we are in the same ‘hood. i walk usually from Addison to just south of Fullerton along the lake. I love East Lakeview.

    We must live sort of near each other. I used to live about 2 blocks from Bobtail, but now I’m at the north end of Wrigleyville. Yesterday I walked from Belmont to Diversey and then back up to Irving Park.
