Just got back from a nice trip to Chicago. Drove down yesterday for a friend’s birthday party at a purty cool Turkish restaurant. I wasn’t really optimistic that I’d like the food, but it was actually VERY good 🙂 Afterward we smoked some rose tobacco from a hookah in the restaurant lounge. Can’t say I’ve smoked anything like it, had a nice scent & flavor, and didn’t kill my lungs like everything else I’ve ever smoked (except clove cigs, but I don’t inhale those). Got back to the hotel about 2am, and crashed till 10am. Today we took a trip to IKEA and saw lotsa things we woulda loved to buy, but didn’t have a truck to haul it all back to Wisconsin (we took my Elantra). While we were there I started not feeling very well, and a bit seasick (do all IKEA stores SHAKE like this one did?), so we headed home. We did take a quick detour to the Apple Store, and drooled over the laptops I can’t afford. Dale wants a mini IPod, but they’re back ordered 5 weeks.
