well, I never thought I'd say it, but I actually miss Madison, Wisconsin. (gasp!). don't worry guys, I haven't gone completely crazy, I still miss Chicago too (quite a bit).

dear cat,

you're a good friend, but I'd appreciate it if you'd stop puking all over my apartment. also, I realize you get lonely during the day when I'm gone, but sleeping on my face at night isn't a good solution. please feel free to make friends with the robocop doll in the corner of the bedroom.
