i do enjoy a holiday dedicated to the color green, beer and green beer. in honor of this holiday, i wore green to every work day (and some non-work days) during the month of march. only one person noticed. weak.

since i couldn't make it to 44, i went to my favorite chicago pub and had some harp. and i had the best chicken fingers (they call 'em strips out here) that they have out here. in fact, i dare say, they rival jim's. don't believe me? come and visit and i'll show ya. i'm sure as heck not gonna take you to a yucky pizza joint.

oh, and i also learned how to pour a perfect pint of guinness. all in all, pretty productive, i'd say.

i went to the doctor's today. a holistic doctor. who told me that all of my problems are caused by the fact that i eat crap, crap, crap all day long. apparently, the crap i eat feeds the yeast in my gut which raises insulin levels which means that progestrin doesn't get made which means i feel like crap.

so, for the next 6 weeks, all i can eat is raw nuts and berries. like, seriously. i can also have veggies and other fruits and 13 8 oz. glasses of water a day. and acupuncture to help me deal with the fact that detoxing my body is going to feel like i have the flu and a hangover and am dying from e.bola and other crap. mostly, i think i'm going to die from the lack of beef, beer and bread. grain free is NOT the way to be.

but! when this is all over, i should be healthier, less reliant on "better living through chemistry" aka all those legal drugs i take and have a slamming body. i mean, pochahontas looked pretty good in her leggings and god knows she was eating nuts and berries like they were going out of style. then again, so do bears, and they're kinda fat asses. crap.

oh man

i really didn't think i was going to make it today. i woke up with the worst hangover that i've had in nearly a year. so yeah, just like last year, i didn't make it to the southside parade. by no means do i regret dancing to some really good music last night and having some good ol' fun, but i was going to cry if Patty had come downstairs and said, "aren't you ready yet?!" luckily, she thinking the same thing, except i would have had to go upstairs, and she was mostly asleep.

umm, then i had some food and put some laundry away and watched some movies. yep, day two of blogging is real exciting stuff.

i took monday off of work with the thought that i may need to nurse a hangover on monday, but instead i think i'm going to just wander around the city (it's going to be 60 out!) and meet different people for lunch and then go to a doctor's appt in the late afternoon where i'll hopefully find out why i keep getting sick all the time again. maybe i really do just need to have my nose taken apart and put back together every couple years. and no, i'm not linking to those pics, so relax.

close call

i was going to attend the river dyeing this morning, but decided to be hungover instead. patty made the same decision, so it wasn't a big deal, or so i thought. then we went downtown and the river was not green. i mean, it's always green, but it wasn't holiday green. i got really nervous - i mean, did they decide to not bother dyeing the river since i didn't show?

but don't worry, they story has a happy ending - we walked further east and the river was toxic sludge green. i just didn't realize how slow the chicago river's currents are.

happy drunk weekend!
