A letter to the weather

Dear Chicago Spring Weather,

Thanks for stopping by. Put your feet up, relax. Stay for awhile. We've all missed you.

The weather reports tell me that you're think of leaving soon, and bringing back the chilly cold this weekend along with some crazy thunderstorms. I don't mind the rain, but please don't leave. I want to bask in your warm 70+ degree weather glow for as long as possible. So, please, stick around.

Yours truly,

I'm baaaack from France

France (and the one day journey to Germany) was absolutely amazing. And that's all I have to say about that. Well, not really... but I'm still recovering and have loads to catch up. So, for now, I'll leave you with a couple pictures. I promise to return with loads more info about my European adventure when I come out from all the laundry, work, and loads of other stuff that didn't go away even though I did.
.Our first time at the Eiffel Tower.

Standing in the Place de la Concorde at the Obelisk looking down the Champs Elysees. Very cool. Except for the traffic.

Walking onto the Ile Saint Louis, where we stayed. Beautiful. Ah, sigh. Wish I was still there.

But now... it's back to reality.

Over on Gather

No more How I Met Your Mother posts/reviews over here!

I am still writing them, but they're over at Gather now. Gather is a relatively new social networking site. Think Facebook, but with a focus on sharing all sorts of info--from entertainment to news to book reviews to status updates.

I'll be reviewing a lot more TV, and books, and movies, and all sorts of fun stuff over there, too. So, come see!

I will still be posting on this blog, too, but now it really will be all about the writing!

My first HIMYM post over there: Ted is a Jerk.
