Day 247/365 [Year 2]

Today I did my first 50 mile ride. It felt pretty good, really - and I wasn't even that sore afterwards. Woot!

The 50 mile ride is part of my training process for the Harbor To The Bay - a 125 mile ride from Boston to Provincetown, and a fundraiser tosupport HIV/AIDS services in the Boston and Cape Cod area - 100% of the money that is raised at which goes to the charities.

I am going to be doing a 125 mile bike ride fundraiser for an aids benefit.

This is what I had done when I had misinterpreted the assignment. I don't want to go into it, really. I was way off. So, the basic detail is: this is a portrait of a person without them in the photo.

Day 243/365 [Year 2]

This weeks assignment I kind've missed out on whilst in Chicago, so I had to do it last minute at work.

Welcome to my office, again.

Day 241/365 [Year 2]

Today began with a bagel and a bus zooming past me - as a result, I went to the field museum instead of the museum of industry and science. Never to fear, I am very much intending on a return visit to Chicago in my future. The field museum was great!
A little kid-crowded, but some fun exhibits, and honestly I didn't care about some of them, but holy crap the dinosaurs were awesome, as was an exhibit on photography from the civil rights movement. Those two alone made the museum admission worthwhile. After finishing I wandered out and looked at the line for the aquarium. I've heard phenomenal things about it - but I wasn't about to wait 45 minutes just to get in, plus I really prefer to just wander and explore cities without an agenda, rather than tourist it up. So I did that. I wandered up the lake aimlessly - took a little nap in the sun along the way - and enjoyed the sun, buildings, water, and people. When I realized I was near the hancock building, I decided to wander to that and go up it, having heard it's view is better than the newly ledge-enabled sears tower. The view was beautiful, and it was awesome that they had screen windows on one side. I swear you guys - I fell in love with Chicago this weekend. After this I toddled [see what I did there?] back down and walked my way back to the hotel through the city. I had missed the ability to hang out with [livejournal.com profile] mikiedoggie during the day, but he joined Lewis, myself, and a few of Lewis' friends at [dinner place name?], and I'm glad we got to meet - he's a swell fella! A bit of wandering and [our third]/a dose of DQ and we parted ways, and went to sleep. Thanks for coming out, Mikie!

Day 239/365 [Year 2]

Day 2 in Chicago!

Today involved a brunch at a local place called Blackie's, which proved to be rather tasty. From there a day of wandering and adventure. Hopped on the train and made our way north to boystown [the gaybourhood], and explored the various shops. Saw Wrigley's from the behind on our way, and walked. It started out drizzling, but turned into a very nice day for wandering. Stopped at an Ann Sathers to try their much-talked-about Cinnamon Rolls, then hopped on the El and made our way back down. After this we got together with one of Lewis' old friends Joanne, and headed into town to grab food and see a show at Steppenwolfe, both of which were tasty. The food involved tasting a local brewery's work, and the Steppenwolfe show was a presentation of 500 Clown's performance The Elephant Deal. I think Lewis penned it best by saying that he really enjoyed it, although he is not entirely sure he understood it.

Day 238/365 [Year 2]

Lewis had a conference in Chicago, and I got to tag along.

My first time ever to Chicago, and it was a wonderful trip. I still can't quite believe how beautiful Chicago is. I look forward to another visit before too long. The company was pretty good too, of course.

On the first day we wandered, had Giordano's stuffed pizza, then wandered through Millenium Park, exploring our way back to the hotel. Later, we wandered to the Chase building to attend a taping of Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me. It was a lot of fun, much longer than the program - but in a good way!


Many many many more )

Day 237/365 [Year 2]

Today was my cousin Courtney's wedding shower.

So all the guys went golfing.

I enjoyed it more than I expected, though I am still not enamored with the sport.

Day 234/365 [Year 2]

Went to NY Pride with [livejournal.com profile] bix02138.

It was quite the experience, that parade is HUGE. Had a great time, and a great experience. Plus got to meet some great people from here at a brunch at A.O.C. in the village, which is RATHER delicious, if I do say so myself. A truly great weekend!


I'll start with brunch with some LJ-folks, and work through the rest of the day, eh?

Day 233/365 [Year 2]

[livejournal.com profile] bix02138 and I traveled to NYC for this years pride.

While wandering about the day prior, we stumbled upon this art exhibit... it was pretty awesome. Dizzying, though.

Also, if you're in new york, and you have not yet encountered the New York NeoFuturists, DO SO. They are phenomenal.

Good news. I went to the doctor, and I am not dead.

Nor, as far as we can tell, am I dying.

I have decided to explore the "woods" near my work on lunchbreak.

Identification, please?

I hope to revisit it and it's brethren with my flash.

Day 220/365 [Year 2]

Today I ran a 5K the bar I'm somewhat standard at was hosting, which ended in a free beer garden.

Proving that I will do close to anything for free beer.
