More of it

- Went to an art show in one of the south Loop industrial lofts on Saturday, where a friend's girlfriend was exhibiting. Some really good stuff and some pretty mediocre stuff, though nothing I'd call bad. A lot of slumming expense-account hipsters and people who dress better than I do. Got to see a bunch of friends and old co-workers I haven't seen in forever, which was very cool, and the whole evening was pretty inspirational for both pal Lara and myself.

- Picked up Later That Day..., the new Lyrics Born album, on the fervent recommendation of a friend, and what can I tell you? He was right. This is a terrific album, folks, definitely on my top ten of the year. I hugely endorse this thing even if you aren't a big fan of hip-hop (though why wouldn't you be?).

- Normally around this time, I'd already be shopping for my big Thanksgiving Expatriate feast, but I think I burned myself out on Halloween dinner; I haven't even begun to think about the menu yet. Maybe it's that less people than usual are coming, or maybe it's the fact that the kitchen needs a big overhaul, but I just haven't been able to get my culinary swerve on this holiday season. Not yet, at least.
