Visited a friend at Northwestern today, the nicest hospital EVER. On one of the levels, there's an Au Bon Pain and Starbucks and Argo Tea and GRK. Super friendly nurses and a huge and gorgeous lobby. I used to be terrified of hospitals; I mean, who isn't? I went to one when I was little and then didn't step foot in one for about 25 years, until I visited a friend last year. But when they're as nice as Northwestern, it's a really pleasant experience. I don't usually go to the hospital but when I do, I prefer Northwestern.
