Sunday Night Soliloquy - Catching Up!
I have not blogged in a while and I wanted to catch up.
Notice how I always start with work - sad, it is like 70% of my life. I finished up some projects, invoiced clients and I am busy organizing my end of year stuff. It takes a lot of time and it is never fun to do. As soon as the invoicing and reporting is over, I will have to update my work website (even more fun).
December is always a busy month for events and I have been going to a few. Just over the weekend, I was honored that my Tweets were selected by Mike Dwyer and used in The Tweet Life - an improv skit comprised of tweets. It was a TON of fun!
Sami had his "Tweetup" at the Sofitel and I got to see Tony Ham, Jen Chicago, Mafia Hairdresser and Matt. There was only one awkward moment at this Tweetup - it is always entertaining for me to watch because I am a voyeur.
I also saw the play Elizabeth Rex at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater and it was excellent, I highly recommend it.
I had an UH-mazing massage at Urban Oasis from a therapist named Christine.
This afternoon, I saw my friends' daughter play the part of Clara, the lead. It was so amazing to watch her dance that part. I've known Taylor since the day she was born, she has been in ballet since she was about three years old, this was a huge accomplishment for her and so gratifying to witness.
I also saw Peter Murphy at The Metro (but that was the weekend of Thanksgiving).
What is Coming Up?
Tomorrow night I am going to dinner at Henri and then to see Wilco at the Civic Opera House. Having seen the Lyric Opera many, many times, I am very excited to see a band perform here. The acoustics are incredible!
For Christmas, I am going to NY to visit Monica. We are spending Christmas Eve with the son of a famous author, a Russian wine collector, a fine, older lady who looks like Uma Thurman and loves to salsa dance and Scott Murphy. This should be awesome! I will try to video tape.
