BAD L'DY FOR NOT POSTING
I've not fallen off the face of the Earth.
And even though I leave for India in three days, I've not exactly been finishing deadlines, doing last-minute shopping and packing, either.
I've been socializing:
WED AFTERNOON = lunch with Bo (the friend who saves all the cats; e-mail me if you're interested in adopting) at an organic cafe and bakery in Glenview (followed by a travel-related trip to Target; you'd think that the one in the middle of the cornfield would be better-stocked and -organized than its urban counterpart. Not so).
THURS AFTERNOON = lunch and hookey with TJ
THURSDAY EVENING = chai and dinner with the former neighbors (whose delightful Bangalore-based parents -- whom I met there in 2004 -- are here visiting)
FRIDAY AFTERNOON/EVENING = snacks and high-jinks with Dreyfus and Dreyfus Jr., who were in town for the Cubs game (they beat the Brewers by 1 run)
SATURDAY MORNING/AFTERNOON/EVENING = An impromptu reunion breakfast with three of my long-lost cousins (plus one friend, one spouse and three offspring) at Heartland Cafe, followed by a trip on the EL to the Lincoln Park Zoo and lakefront and then dinner at Hema's Kitchen.
SUNDAY AFTERNOON = Lunch with TJ
SUNDAY EVENING = Potlock with the Sunday night crew, followed by stoop-sitting and Flight of the Conchords:
Perhaps today will be a bit more productive....
