horoscope for this week...

Few of us articulate our every thought. We learn, early in life, that it isn't wise. You take more risks of this kind than most people. You don't burble every notion that flits through your mind, but nor do you suppress opinions for the sake of polite pretence. You're silent only when you suspect you're in company where honesty is unacceptable. You come alive with people you can speak openly to. Right now, there's something you need to say. Find someone willing to listen. You can change your understanding of the past in one conversation. Through that, you can transform your idea of what lies ahead.

...if only i could say what i need to say....bugger!

Nobody knows the trouble you've seen. Except for Bob, that is. You know - the quiet neighbour, with the binoculars?

horoscope....

Your Week Ahead: You deserve to be rewarded, respected, recognised and repaid. You have done well lately, despite difficult circumstances. Because, though, you have been making so much effort to overcome adversity, you have become tired and disillusioned. Your energy has gone into the fight and now, even though theoretically you are starting to win, it does not seem like much of a victory. You are smiling on the surface, but deep down, you doubt whether your struggle has been worthwhile. The triple conjunction of Jupiter, Neptune and Chiron is about to show you a very reassuring sign. Soon you'll have more energy, enthusiasm and belief in yourself. We are in the 'Dark of the Moon' - and a rare triple-conjunction

....hmmmm...one can hope, i guess....

and humorscope....

You will contemplate nothingness today, but somethingness will keep intruding upon your thoughts.

...that sounds about right. LOL

so i went to chicago last weekend (thurs-mon). took amtrak. no crashing fortunately but my train was delayed by 1h 40min on the way home but it was still faster than greyhound would've been. lol and it was wAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAy better than driving. so glad i didn't drive. so much more relaxing that way. not sure if i'll ever drive to chicago again. LOL

anyway, it was tons o' fun. met up with one of my friends down there....who was down from alaska (yes, the state) for a wedding.... i met her in NZ. small world. did shopping (browsing, actually lol), lots of coffee, went to the lounge in the hancock a couple times, sears tower, bahai house of worship (beautiful!!...albeit f'in freeeeeezing that day!)

i stayed in a hostel that was in a great location (just a few blocks from the art institute and a block off off michigan ave)...but my room was also literally 30 feet from the L. sounded like a plane landing everytime it went by. fortunately it doesn't operate at the odd hours of the night.

on sat night i went out with a group from the hostel to dinner (v.v.v. good vietnamese restaurant) and to a blues club. a very odd moment at the restaurant, tho. i was near the window. at one point this small army of 20-something year old guys walked past in snuggies. LMAO! so, of course, the random cute irish guy sitting next to me didn't know what a snuggie was (or about all the parodies and such) so i had to try to explain it. not easy. LOL actually what was even funnier, a few minutes later one of the guys in a snuggie ran back past the window...in the middle of the street...flailing his arms....chasing after a bus!!! it was the funniest thing i've seen in aaaaaaaaaaages. ROTFLMFAO!!! well, later we went to the blues club and for some reason brian dennehy was there...not that i've ever actually seen any of his movies/tv shows. but anyway.... good music.

hmmm...what else...oh, pizza.....mmmmmmmmmmm..... and went to some museums. art institute, contemporary photography and contemporary arts. actually took a free tour at the contemp arts museum. definitely worth it since i know nothing about contemp arts but i like looking at it. lol good to have some sort of explination for it.

well, i think that's about it. did some other restaurants and such but no exciting stories. still loads of fun, tho. :o)
