    I grew up west of Chicago.
    What I like about the city is that the fans are for the Cubs/Sox/Bears no matter how they are doing.

    In Minneapolis, people practically need to get a bobblehead to get their butts in the seats at playoffs.

    I'll admit it, that Cubs comment was low, sorry. But seriously, Boston broke our curse, when will the Cubs finaly turn it around and win the big one? Or any one for that matter.

    Why don't you move to Chicago, Poly? That would solve all of your rants. Well, one of them, and that's a start.

    Myyyyy kind of town, Chicago is...

    Has it not occurred to you that Beanie might like it too.? A little too much?

    Ok, so I go to WM to get a birthday present for my son's friend. I already had to put up with your typical WM headaches such as people who think they're the only people who matter, blocking the whole aisle so that nobody coming towards them or behind them can pass till they get good and ready to MOVE! The self checkout line was fairly short so at least checking out didn't take quite as long as it usually does on a Saturday. So we're finally headin' to the car. I get the kids buckled in and proceed to put the present in the gift bag. (Yeah, I know, I'm one of those moms who waits to get the birthday present till right before the birthday party. So what of it?) Anyway, I'm fixin' up the gift and this car stops behind me and a little ways down, waiting for me to leave since I had a pretty close parking space and she didn't want to end up parking in the north 40. Cars were lined up behind her all the way down to the front of the store which caused a traffic jam and this lady wasn't about to move. I gave her this look like, "are you kidding me?" So I stopped what I was doing and left so this poor sap could get my place and ended up finishing the gift when I got to the party. This isn't the first time this has happened to me either. Why are people so dumb sometimes?

    Maybe Agape4Robin will loan you her rolling pin and you can "go to town"! You won't need to buy one at Walmart, it's seasoned, it'll work on Beanie. Just a thought.

    That's the Sibbie's rolling pin. Robin stopped by to borrow it when she was baking a up a batch of fresh truth, and she still hasn't returned it.

    Flat! Yes! I remember the first time I came to MN, and went up north. I kept saying, "look at all the trees!!!" My friends said, "uh, yeah." And I said, "No! All of the trees!!! And there are hills!!!"

    When you drive on 80, and there is nothing but cornfields for 2 hours, this is amazing.
