Skunk Sprayed Me!

I caught this video outside my office of a skunk who looked like he wanted to come in. When he lifted his tail, he sprayed (you can see his little butt working). Eek! Thank goodness the door was between us.

GAM-TV Premiere

The debut of my webisodes went fab this past Saturday. About 35 people showed up and were a great test audience. It was wonderful to hear their reactions to the pieces. I'm hoping I can take this somewhere because it's fun!

My Directorial Debut!

I know this sounds cheesey but I directed my first series of "webisodes" that I'll be debuting tomorrow (Sat. 3/26) at a club here in Chicago. Everyone's invited. It's free (cash bar). It'll be at 3 p.m. at @mosphere, 5355 N. Clark. If you're not able to come, I'll let you know how it goes.

Angel's Day Off

A couple weeks back, I got a Friday off and wandered around downtown. Chicago truly is a magnificent city.

There's the gleaming Trump Tower.

The corn-cob buildings of Marina City.

A tour boat on the Chicago river.

Wacker Drive looking to the Wrigley Building.

Rahm Emanuel riding a hot dog.

Inn at Aberdeen

I was in Valparaiso, Ind., to interview a convenience-store retailer this week and stayed at a really cool bed-and-breakfast called Inn at Aberdeen. It was a quaint place with vintage country style rooms and meeting spaces. Might be a cool place to revisit.

Let the Sun Shine

Friends and I went to see the touring production of Hair downtown. We got a picture outside the Oriental Theater and near the Chicago Theater where the "puppet booth" was garnering some attention (and Charlie Sheen's tour on the Chicago Theater marquee). Here I am inside the Oriental letting the sun shine in.

Asians and Friends Chicago had its first "Dining Club" outing to a Chinese restaurant called Sun Wah. It was great duck! Yum ...

Editors Meet in 'Hedgehog' Retreat

The editors I work with met last week on a planned "retreat" to discuss our mission or "Hedgehog" statements. We had fun in Riverdale, Ill., for a bonding experience.
