Cluster F*ck

I feel like I haven't written a blog in forever (just a few days). Here's what's going on in my mind:

1. Today is absolutely gorgeous. I can't believe we're in the 70s. I walked around downtown during my lunch and realized how much I love this city.... I was in a blissful state until I got on State St. and was welcomed by the sounds of the drummer boys. Must they insist on banging their buckets year round? They are 2nd place to people begging for change on my list of "city annoyances".

2. Regardless of how wack people think they are, I love my crocs. I bought them a while back when I was living in Arizona and they really are my shoe of choice for bumming around the house and running errands. Like, I'm a stiletto addict, but if I'm going to Jewel with some sweats on, I'll opt for my crocs.

3. I love the CTA bus tracker website. No longer do I sit hopelessly waiting for a bus to magically appear... but with a few clicks of my blackberry I'm instantly in the know.

4. I feel like nothing nurses a hangover better than ramen noodles. I don't know what it is about them, but if I've been drinking and need some comfort food this is what I'll grab every time.

5. Cayenne Pepper makes everything better.

6. How come nobody ever told me that Lincoln Park was the best place to live? I was thinking my life in the South Loop was bomb only to venture to Fullerton/Diversey and fall in love. I am on a mission to convince my boyfriend to move to Lincoln Park.

7. The obscenely great weather today has reminded me how much I love the city, but more so how much I DON'T love the humidity. There's no humidity in the air today and it is just wonderful... but it's making me have flashbacks to sweated out hair, insanely hot bus rides, and everyone's attitude being a perpetual state of stank.

8. Reggie Bush and Kim Kardashian are an adorable couple. Point blank. Period. This picture is disgustingly cute...

I absolutely adore Kim K and her and Reggie are adorable. People love to hate. Girl I can not put my feet in Crocs for some reason. They are comfortable but so ugly! LOL!

I can imagine you trying to put your feet into crocs and having them like breakout into hives or spontaneously combusting. lol...

Aramide said...

I love this list...though I've never been a fan of Crocs. But they do look comfy.

CaramelKisses said...

It is absolutely lovely in the city today..

those damn "bucket boys" bother the hell out of me also along with the man who always has his sermon and P.A. system near the old navy on state street...lol

Although, I can get with you on the Croc..lol i do have my "low key" day shoe which is either a pair of those ugly flats that seem to be popular or my workout gym sneakers..lol

Linoln Park is awesome, plus there are so many little boutiques that you'll love. trendy after hour spots that make the neighborhood pop, cabs all over, and buses that run all up and through lake shore drive.. it's awesome. Just make sure you get a place that has a parking garage for your car because it deinitely isn't a "park friendly' area..lol

I LOVE this picture of Kim and Reggie. People love to hate on her, but I think she is fab.

I also love Lincoln Park, but you need to find a place away from all the loud pubs:) I live on the South Side, but run up to North Ave to shop every week. I think my favorite place to live in Chicago would be the Gold Coast.

I tried on my Mom's crocs last month and now I understand why people wear them. I don't think I could buy my own, but I would wear them if I got them as a gift.

BTW, are you and your friends chilling at Z-Tejas in Scottsdale in the picture to the right? The decor in the background looks so familiar...

Kiwi said...

I only had one hangover and ramen noodles helped!

And K.Kardashian and Reggie...damn...only the rich and fabulous can have that kind of glow...well not really but seems like it I am jealous

Kryssy said...

I have heard that those Croc things are so comfortable... but DAMN they're ugly. LOL
I love Kim & Reggie.. so damn cute.

GlamStarr said...

LOL...Ishea I am not that bad...am I? LOL!

I'm always playing "Devil's Advocate" and I feel like I need to defend crocs. lol... They aren't intended to be fashionable or stylish. I think that they're intended to be a comfort shoe and yes, they could've made them, well, look different. lol... but I don't know... I got them in hot pink and I like them. lol... but trust, if you run into me on the streets I'll be rocking stilettos 99% of the time :)

@CaramelKisses - Yes, parking is a must! Between my boyfriend and I we have 3 cars to park and that was what stopped us from looking at Hyde Park. The parking situation is atrocious.

@Catherine - Yeah, that's Z'Tejas at Fashion Square...one of my favorite places. I'll take the tortilla soup, a chambord margarita and some corn bread any time. I own a house in Scottsdale, old town area, and am always running around there...I'm actually going back next month.

@Kiwi - 1 hangover? Ever? Wow...I think you're the first person I've heard say that. lol...

@GlamStarr - I think you ARE that fashionably fierce type of chick...crocs may send you into cardiac arrest. lol.

Catherine said...

I knew that was Z-Tejas! I went to the one in Chandler last Thursday and ate. I had the fabulous cornbread, but didn't get a margarita:-( I used to live in Ahwatukee so the one in Chandler was my spot, but the one in Fashion Square is my favorite. They got a Kona Grill in IL, so they need a Z-Tejas in downtown Chicago immediately...

I think I saw the Kona Grill out towards Oak Brook. I know that I was thrilled over the summer to find out that Ra Sushi was here. Ra in Old Town was one of my favorite spots.
