Overheard in Skokie
Grumpy teenaged girl: Nothing's open on Easter. I'm Jewish; I should know.
Spent most of today studying for biochem. Boy, was *that* fun! Carbohydrates will be the death of me, figuratively and literally. Can't I get an Atkins diet waiver and just learn the protein and lipid stuff?
Cubs won against Atlanta after 15 very tense innings late last night. Today, the game started out similarly, but the bullpen imploded in the 8th and we lost 5-2. Tomorrow I have to forego baseball because we'll be in Rockford for Easter, and I don't want to be one of those relatives who spend family gatherings staring at the tv instead of being sociable. The tv shouldn't even be on, unless we're all watching something together, which we never do anyway. Our family is all about eating and yakking and playing darts. Believe me, things can get pretty wild. :)
