So, we got up very early yesterday morning and flew to Chicago, so that we could do some cleanup on the building we own here, which is now vacant but for all of the junk that we must now deal with, and to get one of the locks changed (we were concerned that someone got hold of a key to the door, and wanted to change the lock before things went missing). We got a lot of work done yesterday during the day, then came back to the hotel and watched the new version of The Producers. In many respects, it's even funnier than the original, and the original is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. Today, we went out and bought a few books, found a Starbucks, and did what we do every Sunday: sat around and read. I read Sex, Murder and a Double Latte by Kyra Davis, which just looked good. And it was, very good. I look forward to reading her second book. I also started reading Bloody Mary, the sophomore effort by J. A. Konrath, an author from the Chicago area, and will finish it on the plane tomorrow.

I did some writing while I was here. Nothing of any great consequence, although ainabarad gave me an idea with some of the stories that she's been writing. I probably won't post what I came up with (sorry, Tara), but you never know. I brought along a copy of The 3 AM Obsession as well, and started working one of the exercises in there, but realized that I was just too tired today to do much writing.

We had pizza twice while we were here (yes, we were bad). We ordered in yesterday, and stopped at the place and ate there this evening. We decided that the carryout experience was much better. Pizza was good both times. That should hold me for a few months now.

It was good to fly up this time, rather than drive. We probably paid less for the tickets and reduced accommodations than we would have if we had driven.

We're back tomorrow.
