Five for April 17th:
Ear infection. Jane has wasted no time inheriting some of her father’s less desirable childhood ailments. The good new is that we got her on some antibiotics, and while she’s still crabby, she woke up this morning fever-free for the first time in 3 days, which is a good start.
The Onion. Generally speaking, the rapid-fire, Gilmore Girls-esque delivery the Onion employs for their fake video news interviews annoys me so much that I typically don't watch these, but I can forgive it with this one because it's so goddamned awesome.
Bleed blue. Game one of the Stanley Cup playoffs versus the Blackhawks is tonight. Yeah, we’re in an injury-riddled slump, but let’s not dwell on those things.
Cool stuff. Donut Palace donuts at work, new kite, 70-degree weekend, morning Loop parking lot cruise, dyeing eggs for Jane, eye doctor appointment for (much-needed) new contacts, BMX dust-off.
Weekend action. Taking a 4-day weekend starting tomorrow. On deck: 2 year wedding anniversary, JB skate sessions, last fish fry of the year, CHP egg hunt, decker at Firebird or Via Dove at Off Broadway, finishing the front steps, drums and other noises, hanging out with the crew. See you Tuesday.
