The solitude of winter

How about that for a title?

Last night I was riding on the train and I noticed this guy sleeping across from me. I was afraid he was foaming at the mouth or had really yellow teeth because his mouth was sort of open. It turned out it was his gum which proceeded to fall out of his mouth and rest on his sweatshirt for about 15 minutes even after he woke up. He also did something I have never seen someone do. He very slowly took some toilet paper and rolled it up like a joint. He then moistened one end and started to clean/wipe inside his eyelids. It was all very strange.

After that epic train ride I met my good friend Joe downtown for some hanging and drinks. It was good to see Joe especially since I live far away and he is moving way out in the burbs in st. Louie. We ended up at some college bar called Skeeters (I think). The beer was cheap for Chicago and they had a giant jenga setup. It was amazing. This picture does not do it justice.

This weekend is going to be rough because I don't have cable and duh the Puppy Bowl is on Sunday. I'll try to make the best of it.
