My Kind of Town?

In the past and basically up to this point, the name "Chicago" has meant long delays at ORD and freaking freezing ass cold windy weather- blah. It earned the nickname Shitcago.

September 30th, 2007 (Happy Birthday Mom!)
I land at ORD to have my bag temporarily misplaced, an extra hour in the airport. Imagine that, no surprise there. But when you walk outside.... comfy climate. Hmmm.... Check in to the Marriott, nice hotel. Hmmmm....

Takin the "L" in to work. Feeling alive in a big city, thinking NYish - love it. Arrive at the federal building downtown, LOVE IT. I always wanted to work in a federal building! 34th floor, oh their view!

Took advantage of the full kitchen in the hotel, brought a cake to our staff meeting:

October 3rd.... 4th....

Took long strolls around the city, shopped a bit too - wow. So many wonderful things you can notice when you don't have to cover your face with a scarf and protect yourself from cold weather (hee hee):

And so begins a new era... of thinking this is my kind of town... and wearing GSA shirts.

Until next time Chicago, until next time....
