so lessee,.what's new today? well it's monday,..we'll be on our way to st louis in a few hours,..
but i still have oshkosh on the brain,..lol what a nice town and such nice people!
so i guess i should fill you in! ok,.when we woke refreshed and bushytailed on sat, emily and i took a walk through the town,..Athena needed to get some parts for her car so she went to the local junkyard and
got everyhting she needs AND installed for $20,..less than what it costs to live in NYC for a day!
so we put some CDs on consignment,..got some joe at the cafe, got some free back massages at the wellness center as well as some yummy hommus,.then we went on a quest for the veggie stand,..apparantly the best in the oshkosh area,..but here's the thing,..the lady that looks out for the stand wasnt' there,..it was raining, but all the produce was still there,..perplexed, i went to the quickie mart next door and asked if someone was coming back,..apparantly she wasn't but leaving all your wares on the street is oshkosh standard so we were told to pick out what we wanted and pay for it there,..
so we did,..
we then found out where to get "curds" basically it's young cheese,..i've been told by my wisconsin friends i need to do that,..so i did,.tastes like cheese, basically,..lol i love the accent here! the wisconsin accent is so cool,..i've
been practicing so maybe when i get back i'll demonstrate my skill,.. so that's sat,..we drove back to sandy's place in chicago,..drank some wine, chatted and then hit the hay,..
sun: ate some yummy veggies,..emily athena and I were all on our own path,..emily went antiquing, athena slept and took a jog, i took a nice long walk,..didn't know we were so close to the lake,..lake michigan i think,..
it's huge! so i spent the day getting all thoughtful watching the water roll in and lap on the rocks,.looking at the chicago "skyline" (im a stuck up new yorker) i do have to say chicago is a beautiful city, its clean and it's pretty diverse,..and i love the juxtoposition of the skyline on vast lake,..and it really is windy!
it does make me miss NYC though,..as much as i bitch and moan about it,..there's no other city I can call home,..
so we had a gig in lansing IL as well,..nothing much to say about it,..but when we got home we had some wine and ate some yummy dinner,..and had more wine,..it was that kind of night,..really it's a good thing it was a cafe', had they had jaeger i doubt i would remember much,..
anyway,..that's been the news so far,..still having a blast! till next time!
