Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

My dad just got us our Cubs tickets. Now he's working on the Whitesox.

Can't wait! Never seen these Chicago ballparks before...

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I have made a declaration to my friends that I am going to at least 3 Cubs games this year. I'm not even a huge fan of the Cubs, but I absolutely love spending time at Wrigley Field. It's easily my favorite ballpark.

US Cellular? Meh.

^ The Cell looks great now. It looked like CRAP when it was first built. I'm glad I waited until now to go.

In fact we'll be there opening day! Had to go to StubHub to get the damn tickets though...ah well, at least it'll be fun.

Oh, it's a fine stadium, but the experience just isn't the same. There's something special about Wrigley and the fans at the games that makes that place just so much more awesome to me.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

^ Yeah, I can't wait to see BOTH parks.

And fortunately, none of the games I will be seeing will be against teams I root for (I'm seeing Cubs/Diamondbacks and Whitesox/Rays), so I won't have to be the 'enemy' fan.

I do wish I could have seen Comiskey though. Twenty years too late for that one.

Comiskey was horrible.

Wait, 20 years? Christ, I was 5-years old the last time I was there! It doesn't seem like that long ago.

My first ever Playstation, I am now a convert.
Make sure you get Uncharted 2 (and Uncharted 1 as well). U2 is definitely a must-play game for every PS3 owner.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I just read up about that - looks like it is quite something! It would be great to see what this console can do when tested to the max, although I'm not usually too good with adventure games, I enjoy the sporty types more. I was thinking of Gran Turismo 5, and Mortal Kombat when it comes out in April.

Why couldn't I have got this at the start of winter? Now I suspect I may spend too many nice days at home!

I went nuts today and finally gave in and bought some leggings and skinny jeans. Then I consoled myself by buying two necklaces and a pair of earrings which are fast becoming one of my favorites already!

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I bought food for my office at work. I've been working in a restaurant for the last 5 years. I am not used to food not being readily available whenever I want it.

Always a good way to settle in. It's amazing the effect a box of cookies once every few weeks or so has. How's the new job going anyway?

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I foolishly went to Abercrombie & Fitch, you know, just to take a look at the new collection for the Spring...

Yeah, right.

I ended up bringing home this gorgeous Hamilton jacket.



Now the damned weather better cooperate and get warm enough so I can wear it.

I've always wanted to go to Wrigley just to see the infamous baseball-eating ivy wall. That's how it's described at the Baseball Hall of Fame. Occasionally, an outfielder gets lost in there, too. Quite a few have been hurt...

Fun lightweight jacket. Tell me about the weather though! I went out today without an overcoat and rapidly regretted it... brrr...



I just heard from my shirtmaker that the shirts I ordered a few weeks ago are ready; that's a much faster turnaround than usual. They're being mailed out tomorrow!
