Well, lookie here.

I read on the DCist this morning that DC Parks were recently ranked 5th BEST in the nation.  I knew there was a reason I was traipsing around this place on foot.

Running in Chicago

Last weekend while visiting Chicago I went for a lovely run through Loyola Park and Loyola University's lakeside campus. Below are images of the park and Lake Michigan. Also, I'm pretty obsessed with my new app, Polamatic. It's the new Instagram. Also, I just blogged this from my phone with te Blogger app. iPhones are the bomb dot com.

Well, You Know I Like My Chicken Fried

Something terrible happened last night, and I'm not entirely sure that I should be putting this story in print...but no one was harmed, so here goes.

Last night, I fell asleep with chicken in the oven.

It all started when I came home from work.  It was after 9pm, so I had some cheerios for dinner, but was forced to cook the chicken I had thawing in the fridge, lest it go to waste.  The chicken went into the oven around 9:25 - where I promptly forgot about it.  I know I fell asleep sometime between 10 and 10:20, since I only remember a little bit of the Big Bang Theory episode I was watching.  And when I happened to wake up at 3am, my apartment smelled like a 4th of July Barbecue!  I instantly thought, "Weird, I wonder if my neighbor is cooking..."  Then I rolled over and tried to go back to sleep - a few minutes later, realizing, "My oven is on, and that is WHY my apartment smells like an amazing chicken dinner!!"

This episode, combined with the time that I almost fell asleep with the stove on (only to be disturbed by the hissing of the gas), makes me pretty sure there's a part of my brain that has not fully developed.  I'm worried about me, really worried.  And the chicken still went to waste.

A Funny for the Weekend

Ok, I keep reading and re-reading this hilarious little bit from Buzzfeed:

I'm also going to take this boring Friday to point out my favorites.
*Sidenote - as I narrow down my faves, I'm realizing I love them all.

Cute, right?
Mosey on over to Buzzfeed - All 33 are really worth LOL-ing at.
