We're Back, And Chicago Ate Me Alive

Historic day at The Bucky Channel yesterday, although that's not necessarily a good thing. For the first time ever, a day went by without an update. I gave the keys to Bear for the day, and he failed me. I've forgiven him, and we roll on. The reason for the slow day was my day trip to the Windy City. Besides the fact their sports fans actually enjoy when their teams lose, Chicago is one hell of a town. I'd could easily see myself living there, even though it's expensive as hell and I would have to become a FIB.

Let me share some of the details with you, if you don't mind. I make the trip to Chicago to check out a job fair, which was an absolute joke. If you're ever looking for jobs, NEVER go to anything sponsored by Diversity Job Fairs. The vendors that are there don't tell you anything except to go to their websites and apply online. What kind of bullshit is that? I could have done that from my parent's basement for Pete's sakes! Although, if I'm playing devil's advocate against myself, I should have known that the fair would likely be a joke.

I had a good day though, as I had the chance to watch the Euro game between Turkey and Germany with people that actually liked soccer. Not just that, but the people were actually from Germany and from Turkey! I've always thought the excitement of a soccer game depends on who you watch it with. If you're alone, it's boring. If you're with a ton of people, you wonder why you don't watch soccer more often. Of course though, I ended up sitting next to the one guy who just starting watching soccer last week. And he spent most of the second half making out with his girlfriend. Nothing worse than watch two uglies make out in a bar, especially when I'm trying to enjoy a 15 dollar burger.

So overall, the day was a wash. The one silver lining of the day though had to meeting my new friend, Garmin. Seriously, these little GPS things that you put in your car are incredible, and I just wish I would have figured that out sooner. The trip to FIB Land may not have gone as planned, but I'm back within the lovely borders of Wisconsin, and ready to make up for the day we missed.
