Soooo it rained a little bit in Chicagoland today. Check out our
lake front property apartment complex! The Beau Named Joe tests the depth of the sidewalk
Do you think they have to pay more for the lakeside view?
Our property managers apparently like the flooding so much, they installed a fountain (far left). j/k, That’s just an overflowing pond… into the street.
Thank goodness that’s not OUR parking lot.
Luckily, our parking lot was spared from the flooding so we can safely enter and exit the complex, but some people weren’t as lucky. But then again, at least we’re not in Texas right now. :-(In other news, the new job is going well. It’s a lot of hours and the hour commute kinda blows, especially with gas so high. But my first pay check will be so worth it (why do I have to wait until October 1?!) and it’s nice to sit and talk politics with other 20-somethings all afternoon/evening. It’s a nice outlet for my frustrations, since you guys are probably sick and tired of hearing my rants. (Speaking of rants, sorry for the pity party in the last post. TBNJoe surprised me with the new-ish Jason Mraz CD which made everything better!)
In further news, my cousin and his wife gave birth to a bouncing baby boy this week! Clarke Maxwell, a whopping 9 lbs 12 oz. Best wishes to them!
In even further news, Notre Dame is undefeated. Um, awesome. I think the best part was when the announcer told Jimmy Clausen (QB) that he hasn’t been sacked in two games!!!, like that’s a really big football feat… like not being sacked for two games is on par with Michael Phelps shitting golden eggs (wait, that’s not how he got all those medals?). Pretty funny stuff.
And last but not least, how excited are you for SNL tonight? Word on the street is Obama cameo, Tina Fey coming back to play Palin, and Maya Rudolph coming back to play Michelle Obama. I can’t control how excited I am.
So, friends, how’s the weather?
