My birthday

Chris came to Chicago on 7/22 to help celebrate my birthday. I'm twenty nine....again. :) He also came to see Lance Barber performing at Martyrs in Lincoln Park. For once, I was not the most intoxicated. That award goes to Chris! He was even smoking. Who would have thought I'd live to see that day. He was not in very good shape the next day, but he eventually recovered.

Dave gave me tickets to see Dave Matthews Band on 7/24. I was totally surprised! The concert was at Alpine Valley in Wisconsin. It didn't take too long to get there, but it took just as long to actually get inside and park. We missed the opening band, which was probably a good thing. We got there just in time to hear the first song from DMB. After the show it took us an hour to find the car. We didn't get home until almost 3 am. Fortunately I had taken my birthday off. It was a great day.

I'm back.... finally

Okay, so it's been about 2 months. My Grandma Donnelly died on June 13th, so Dave and I went to the wake and funeral in Iowa. I did get to see my 2 first cousins that I hadn't seen in over 15 years. John Patrick is "retired" at age 22; he refuses to get a job. Kelly is working and going to school; she seems normal. I interviewed for a job at Hewitt, but didn't get it. Why, you ask? Allegedly, there were typos on my resume, and I don't have a high enough "learning agility". WHATEVER. This Monday, the day I always feared finally arrived. Starting in the beginning of 2006, no more free food at work! Can anyone say "Monster"? I also found out that my dad has a brain tumor the size of a cucumber. Fun times for everyone.
