A Selfish Weekend with Friends.

By: The Dude on the Right
I wish I had a good reason for the lack of postings the last few days, but really it was all about selfishness. As happens every early December, this is a weekend that a bunch of friends from college, including myself, get together for a weekend in Chicago. Folks fly in from New Jersey, some people brave lousy driving conditions, but the weekend is culminated with a fancy-shmancy, or at least just a nice dinner, at one of the many fine-dining establishments in the Chicago area (this year is happened to be an Italian place called "Scoozi!").

I won’t go into too much about the weekend as I think Stu Gotz and I will go into some things tomorrow for our Weekend Wrap-Up! Podcast, but the weekend always gives some interesting events, and sometimes things for future blogs. A few years ago a group of us came up with a new religion, which if I could ever find the bar napkins we wrote most of our core beliefs on, well, if you thought the story of Xenu and Scientology is a little bit out there, well, our religion has that beat, and might be a little more fun. But this weekend wasn’t about religion, and as I reminisce this evening of a fun weekend filled with seeing old friends, it was also exciting because for a group of us as we broke out of our predictable selves and discovered a couple of new establishments, namely "Reagle Beagle" (Nice meeting you, Andie!) and "English",  both places being enjoyable, different in their own right, and hopefully longer reviews will follow at a later time.

For Stu I think I will fill him in on how I tend to humor myself in my own head with different scenarios I came up with over the weekend, but for some future blogs there might some topics like:

  • Are 7&7’s back?
  • An internet date gone bad.
  • What’s the point of a flat screen TV?
  • Ventilation in bathrooms.
  • Scrumpy’s remembered.
  • Sure the weekend kept me away from some important news and rumors like Britney Spears being pregnant, mourning the death of Evel Knievel, and paying attention to college football where, depending on the latest BCS standings, The Ohio State Buckeyes might find themselves in the BCS Championship Game after all, leaving The Rose Bowl for USC and Illinois, and the folks at FOX are close to breathing a sigh of relief of the ratings disaster of a West Virginia v. Missouri match-up.  Oh well.

    As being selfish can sometimes cause I am now left with so many things to catch back up on, so many things to post, and I still don’t know who got booted off of Survivor last Thursday, though I hope to fire up my TiVo later and at let the catching up begin.

    It was great to see some old friends again, and in about a year from now I will most likely be selfish once again because sometimes old friends are more important than posting things on the internet.

    That's it for this one!  I'm The Dude on the Right!!  L8R!!!
