New book

Finished this book, Three Women. The author followed these three real women for years and even lived in their towns and talks all about their stories/relationships/sex lives. It's amazing and so incredibly written. So much vivid detail. Must read! Also, a pic of a sleepy kitty :)

Drank a new Trump inspired beer, Chinga Tu Pelo, meaning "Fuck Your Hair." AJ made the most delicious banana bread ever and then we ordered Luella's for brunch and Spacca Napoli pizza for dinner. A DELICIOUS day.

Quick run in the morning and then came home to make pumpkin drop cookies and hang some prints I just bought from my favorite photographer, Jamie Beck! Check out her site and follow her on Instagram!

Zoo time

Ventured to the Lincoln Park Zoo today. Walking around is limited by construction and covid one way paths. Plus a few buildings were closed so there wasn't much to see. But I managed to catch the flamingos during a nap and the macaques doing some serious grooming. You can reserve your slot here

Get me outta here

Rode my bike to the post office. Watched Idgie crawl in and out of a box. It was a fascinating day.

Coffee and art

The sign says it all: Common Sense Prevailed! Took a walk to get some coffee and ended up buying this awesome Jordan-esque print of Obama at Side Project Coffee, a new coffee shop at Foster and Damen that sells some awesome prints and other fun stuff. Plus, great coffee!

Spidey sense

We discovered this spider at the bottom of our back stairwell. Some people said it's poisonous. Other don't. I just assume it's poisonous and stay away. Good luck with your web buddy!

10 minutes into my run, I saw people on bikes and sidewalks and in the streets randomly yelling or cheering. It took me a few minutes to realize what was happening and for maybe the 200th time this week I refreshed my NY Times app and I saw it....BIDEN DEFEATS TRUMP. I jumped up and down and yelled "OH MY GOD, I'M SO HAPPY! I immediately called my mom and then AJ called from home to make sure I saw the news. Holy shit, what a relief. 2 and a half more months of this asshole and then we can hopefully start to turn things around (more mask mandates, pass another stimulus bill, rejoin the Paris agreement, etc etc ETC). Fingers crossed :)

Come on Pennsylvania!!!

Feeling pretty good about this election now, Biden is ahead in most of these swing states. Now if Pennsylvania would just call it!

Vote dangit.

It's Election Day! I voted last month and dropped off my ballot at an early voting location. It seems like we've been talking about 2020 since 2016 and since it's been a shit year, like the shittiest year since I've been alive.....I'm ready for some good news. I'd like to quickly say that even though this year hasn't been great, I really have nothing to complain about. I still have my job and so does AJ. We're making the same amount of money, if not a little more. I'm saving more by not going out as much. But on the other hand, I'm working at home every day with very little to do, I haven't done comedy in 8 months (the whole reason I moved my life here 16 years ago) and we can't see our favorite bands, our favorite friends, and our family (for the most part). But I'm sacrificing much less than other people so I can bear down and wait until things improve. And as long as we have Biden leading this fight against coronavirus, I think most of us will be much more at peace and trusting of the administration. Here's hoping for a blue win and results as soon as possible!! Now get out and vote and give this kitty a high five!

A nice peaceful sunset before what will most likely be a very stressful week.

Went for a long run, enjoyed some cool Xmas decorations and baked cookies! AJ worked tonight but there wasn't much of a reason to celebrate anyways.
