Happy New Year & Chicago!

Hello 2007.

Partied up with some of my penguino friends. Continuing with stuff, I have decided to put up some of the better pictures from my great adventure in the place in America dubbed "The Windy City" (Indeed it was windy even though the temperature was moderate).

The City

Lake Shore Drive


From the hancock observatory at nighttime. I notice the bluriness and that was something I couldn't really control on my camera.

Museums and Other Places

OMFGs--cute at the MoS&I.

Was a real living baby at one time? more MoS&I.

Giant spiders feast on grubs at the Field.

Penguins at the shedd. The rockhoppers=funny jumpers.

Where Laura went: Museum of Science and Industry, The Field Museum, Adler Planetarium, and Shedd Aquarium. Oh the memories and antique scents.


Went here quite a few times back in the cicero days.

The polish from Lucky Dog (see above). I used to get it plain, but for this occasion it's got everything on it. It tasted different from what I remembered.

Gino's East pizza. This deep dish takes a frickin' long time to bake. There was graffiti and other writings on the walls and seats and under the table. Some pictures exist somewhere.

Other food places: Al's Italian Beef place and some buffet at this casino (the crab legs!). Most other places were in museums or food gained from groceries. The fair share, have thou changed so much?

Ending the Journey

One of the cousins. We planned to party, but cramps ensued. I watched some Hayao Miyazaki instead.

The plane on the way back west (to Las Vegas, actually) showed Little Miss Sunshine again. Multiple little screens show the part in the film where the family is shacking up in some motel for the night.

I had a lot more relatives (even a baby niece) that I don't have pictures of here. Uh, that's mostly because..my camera sucks and there's some pics on the family camera that has yet to be uploaded. Um. Yes. etc.

....the end of my year was fun. I also watched some kid show I had heard of, but didn't really know much about. Here it be: The Wonder Pets

This show...so adorable. Really.
