Aside: FUCK!

I had massive problems getting back here from Chicago. New full post tomorrow. Certain people on Facebook need to be medicated. This is my new personal theme song: http://chickenwings.ytmnd.com/

That is all.

Figure 1: For a moment, I thought I’d have to move here.

“I’m from a city in the Midwest/best city in the whole wide world, hey!”

Chicago is the best! Everyone who visits loooooves it. You should move there!

I, however, will NOT be returning full-time, barring any family tragedies (God forbid). I love it, but I found my place elsewhere. I even got Ma Dukes trying to move up here with me. But I love where I’m from!

Everyone loves Chicago! It’s prolly cause of me and Obama, ya know?

BTW – When I was 11 or so, my plane landed at the wrong Chicago airport. This was pre-cell phone era, and my parents were waiting at the correct airport. Good times.

Chicago is wonderful! Except for that damn lake Michigan! Making a good day 30 degrees colder.

I hate getting stuck in airports. My little airport story in which I nearly got trapped:

I used to be friends with a Greek girl and a white/Italian girl. Let’s call them Althea and Donatella. So we are coming back from Cabo San Lucas after a Spring Break trip. We get to the Houston Airport and everything is cool. We go to the gate and there is another plane there along with a long line of people going to let’s say New York. Our plane leaves the airport, as in, LEAVES THE AIRPORT at 9:00pm. This other plane is there at let’s say, 8:45pm. Althea and Donatella SIT DOWN and say, well our plane must be next after this one. Mind you, our plane LEAVES at 9pm.

I check the board behind the service counter and our flight is nowhere to be seen. I tell them that it’s likely our gate has changed and we should go back and check the big board about 8 gates down. They insist that we should stay put should our plane show up (we have assigned seats, their sheer dumbassery is killing me this point). I tell them that I’m going to check the board and they get UPSET. Telling me that I should listen to them and that it’s two against one and blah blah blah. I tell them fine, I’ll go ask the counter-help. So I go and ask her and lo and behold our gate had been changed. To a gate waaaaay on the other end of the terminal.

I go back and start picking up my stuff and tell them the gate had been changed from A to Z. They go “whaaaat? how is that possible?” I ignore them and flag down one of those golf cart guys and tell his we’ve got a flight that is leaving in FIVE minutes and we need to go. We get to the gate and it was like that scene in Home Alone where they were closing the fucking door on us. We were the last people on the plane. Everyone was staring us down like, “sit the fuck down” and we get settled.

I turn to them and they NEVER say thank you, or good looking out or thanks for making so we weren’t stuck in Houston for the night. They just settled themselves and started talking about the trip.

I am no longer friends with those idiot bitches.

Sorry for the long response I just got really heated remembering that

Tomatohead, everytime I see your moniker, I want to cry.

As a Texican of Louisianan descent, 99% of the dishes I know how to make are tomato-based or contain tomato. 100% of them contain pepper.

I just used my garden’s last tomato on dinner and yesterday I used my last frozen pepper.

I can either starve, contract salmonella or–worse–USE CANNED TOMATO WHEN I COOK TOMORROW. Sign of the end of days? I’d say, “yes.”

LOL. I know…I almost died when the cheeseburgers I like so much at Bongo Burger no longer had tomatoes…but they switched over to an organic farmer so tomatoes again, yay!

Errrr, Jen, ALL tomatoes have been safe for a couple weeks now. Turns out that the salmonella outbreak was from janky salsa, and not fresh tomatoes.

Hahhaah Dustin. I totally thought of something “totally different” when I saw fist as well…I was just not as forthright about it. 🙂

What the deuce???? You mean my dining hall has been refusing to serve tomatoes for no goddamn reason?

15 07 2008
Jen

I thought I was supposed to be avoiding salsa components, not salsa itself.

I am paranoid of any tomato, pepper or piece of cilantro not grown by myself or a family member right now.

@TomatoHead; YEP! The caefteria @ my job stopped those first 5 days or so, until a clearance was issued. There could be 2 issues at hand in your cafeteria. One, they may be rying to reduce the chances of someone filing a frivolous lawsuit ( since we know people will sue over the dumbest shit) and it’s cheaper to just not serve it, than to deal with a BS lawsuit. Two, could be that they’re just cheap, period. Food is skyrocketing! I went to get a bag of lemons last night, and it was 6 freakin dollars, no bullshit. I dopped them shits right back where I got them from and got some bottled organic lemon juice for 2 bucks cheaper, and yields more juice than I’d have gotten from the bag of intact lemons. 😦

I live in Milwaukee, so I visit Chi pretty often. It is always a good time. I was just there about a month ago. Of couse I only have to drive about an hour to get there, so no travel problems except for the crazy downtown traffic.

Nice I’m in Mil too so I feel you about the traffic down to Chi. Did you know that out of state travelers have three tries to pass the 20 freaking mile toll lane and go through the I-Pass before they send you a ticket? Um… err… uhhh… that’s what somebody tole me.

I was in NYC this past Wed-Sat. My mom and I were on a non-stop flight from SEA-JFK for 4 1/2 hrs in the exit row. My mom’s seat was right next to the slide, so she could only extend her left leg. There was freezing cold condensation raining (not dripping) on her and gale force winds blowing through the crack of the door. The flight attendant, in the jump seat LOOKING RIGHT AT US, couldn’t seem to figure out what was wrong. The flight was full, and there were no other seats. I know cut backs extended to food on flights – but aircraft maintenance?? Speaking of food, on the way home, the flight attendant comes by like, “want to share a menu?” it’s bad enough I have to buy food – but I have to SHARE A MENU??????

Ahh, Chi-town. Lived there for 3 years when I was coming up my damn self. Well lemme rephrase that. We stayed an hour north of Chicago in the damn boonies, which to be completely honest, was about 5 minutes from the Wisconsin State Line. smh. I love the city, but HATED THOSE COUNTRY ASS BOONIES.

Sadly Chicago politics and media are incredibly corrupt, but i guess what isnt these days. You couldnt pay me a million dollars to move to the mid west. People that far from the ocean are introverted. Example, People still live in Nebraska, Ohio, Kansas, Oklahoma, etc even though they know they have a better shot at getting hit by a tornado that year then hitting the lottery. Second, once they get hit by the tornado, they REBUILD! ARE YOU KIDDING ME? There are over 100 tornados a year in the midwest, and millions and millions of dollars in damage, and those dumb ass hicks continue to live there. Maybe thats why the features in those houses are as standard as they come, because why put granite in a house that will just be blow away. Im sorry you went to Chicago, the only thing it has going for it is Oprah, and the Sears tower.

Planet Wings has a super hot chicken wing flavor that tastes like its been basted in battery acid. My friend who is indian and thus bred on jalepeno spiced breast milk made the mistake of actually eating 2 (i ate part of one swearing my black and country genes could handle it, dipped the last half in blue cheese dressing and still ended up downing a gallon of soda and all the mozarella sticks to calm my mouth) and spent the the next 45 minutes in school laboratory sink in newark running tap water into his mouth. Being indian he also took his text book with him to study while attempting to save his tongue at the expense of possible lead poisoning through newark tap water.

not at all an exaggeration. I thought he was kidnapped and had to search for him after 30 minutes.

DO NOT EAT THE SUICIDAL WINGS! i swear they are poisonous and will remove your skin.

Not a fan of Chicago…I was born here, I went to school here, I can’t wait to get away from here…

Miracle Max…Chicago is located on Lake Michigan. It’s not an ocean, but people love it just the same. Chicago also has one of the highest boating communities in the United States. I lived in New York for 3 years and never saw people with the same love for the good ole’ Hudson River, nor were they chomping at the bit to get into the Atlantic!

SBPH I hate flying out of Chicago or Detroit. I had to leave from O’hare airport to go to Detroit….2 hrs away and we sat on the runway for 3 1/2 hours! I fell asleep, woke up, paid my taxes and we still were sitting on that dang ole’ runway. Then after I got to Detroit I had to connect to another flight and sat there for another 2 hrs. At least they gave me 5,000 free air miles….whoppee!

Miracle Max-I grew up 13 years in KS and not once have I ever seen/been in a tornado. Yes they do occur, and this year was definitely the year of tornadoes. Plus, only 2 towns were severely hit by tornadoes in recent years. Greensburg last year. It wasn’t a big town, and they’re rebuilding it to become the first entirely green city, so yay Kansas. And recently Chapman. Parts of the town were hit, but they’re getting it right back up. Shit, we could live in California where there is always a blazing fire or some shit. Don’t forget all the recent floods either.
Also living in Chicago, there is much more than Oprah and the Sears Towers. I’ve been and lived many places, but Chicago is always home. You cannot beat Chi-town.

I’m just glad the people who sing that chicken wings song aren’t Black. After BET’s “Read a Book” fiasco last year, I can’t take anymore.
