In the Windy City
So day one of our Chicago trip was a bit of a lazy one. Our train got in around 1PM. We're staying with a friend who lives in an amazing loft apartment in the west loop. When we got to the apartment Jon and I took a long nap. (We didn't sleep the night before and we didn't get good seats on the train so sleeping during the trip didn't work too well.)
Then we walked around Greek Town a bit and had an amazing dinner. Mmmmmmmm...saganaki and spanakopita! After filling our bellies with delicious food we went to my old work place to watch The Greatest Movie Ever Sold. It was nice seeing some of my old co-workers. I've been having a recurring dream where I'm working at both theatres simultaneously and have to take the train back and forth between Detroit and Chicago everyday to get to work. It's a really stressful dream! So I kind of hope that by going back I've filled whatever sort of unconscious need I've been having and can finally sleep easy, haha.
Anyway the movie was really good. It's by Morgan Spurlock the guy who did Super Size Me and it's about advertising and product placement in the entertainment industry. It's interesting because it's a documentary about making a documentary that is unfolding as the movie progresses. I thought it was clever.
Today is Jon's screen writing award ceremony! I really hope he wins for his screenplay. He really deserves it. During the day we are probably just going to walk around a bit and I'm going to hit up my favorite thrift store.
I forgot the point and shoot camera at home, so we've been taking iPhone pictures so far which has given me an excuse to play around more with the hipstamatic app. I love the way every pictures turns out with the app. Jon kept making fun of me on the train because I was taking pictures of just about everything, haha. It was perfect though because since it was so rainy out all of the photos turned out really eerie and interesting.
