Nothing makes me more apathetic about jogging than the humidity being at 1000% with a temperature over 85 degrees. I guess apathetic isn't the right word because that makes it sound as if I could go either way. Nothing deters me more than the humidity. However, I have decided to start bringing jogging clothes to work and go to North Park's gym if it is too hot outside (too hot being entirely subjective).

Now, I know this doesn't make sense, but when I'm with one other person and they need to go to the bathroom, it almost offends me that they walk in the bathroom and lock the door. Do you think I'm going to wait ten seconds until you're peeing and then come barging in? It's something I don't understand.

Sorry I have gone so long in between blogs. I have started my chaplaincy at Evanston Hospital, which is taking more energy than I thought it would. It's funny how fast you turn into an elderly person when you have to get up for the 8:30-5 job. Seriously, at 9 p.m. I'm thinking about how I can carefully extricate myself from any social situation and get to bed as soon as possible. It's sad really. Chaplaincy has been good so far. You become a much better listener through this process (probably a less selfish person altogether).

Today I'm buying Ravinia tickets to go see Peter and Paul's tribute to Mary. They're looking a little older these days (as opposed to when I used to go to their concerts in the 60s? What am I talking about?):
I think I will also go to the CSO playing some Mahler's Adagio from Symphony no. 10, Barber's Adagio for Strings, and Mendelssohn's Concerto in E Minor, which I am really looking forward to. Concerto in E Minor is one of my favorite classical pieces of all time. NorthShore employees get in free that night, so why not go?

I think the worst sound in the world is when a guitar amplifier falls. It sounds like what I imagine hell to sound like (lots of weird, crashing reverb). Well, I don't have much more to say; I wanted to get back on the blogging bandwagon. Later.


  1. Don't say jogging. You run faster than me, and I consider myself to be running. Also, the "run" button on the treadmill at Galter says that jog is 4mph and run is 6mph, which helps justify my terminology.

    I agree about the bathroom thing! I think people do it just out of habit, but still...

  2. I always hated that you said jogging too. Now that Alli said it, I feel okay saying it too.
