Taste of Hell

Oh the taste of Chicago. I guess it's ok to go to once, but really, after that it's just a giant nuisance. Traffic is hell, down town is full of tourists, filling the streets with a sort of "vibrance" that I could really do with out. Vibrance here really means other people sweating on me.

That said, I'm going to really miss Chicago and all of its shenanigans.

Now that summer is really here (today maybe a bit of a regression into spring) it means that we can chill at the beach again. I can't think of many cities where you can walk from work to the beach in a few short blocks. Sure Boston will be on a harbor and whatnot, but I'm pretty sure there are no beaches that I can get to from the T (that's entirely unverified, I'm just guessing)

Oh man I forgot this was the time for the taste. I went last year on the 3rd, and it was a madhouse! People got shot afterward, and at one point I was caught in a stampede, but the fireworks were pretty cool.
