I have a confession
Last night I went to see The Break-Up
, a film hotly talked about here in Chicago as it stars their favourite son Vince Vaughn
and was filmed here in the city two summers ago hot on Jennifer Aniston's break-up with Brad (you may have remember reading about that little bit of tittle tattle!)
The film was pretty shite actually and only held my interest because it was filmed in Chi-town and included many of it's more famous
and less widely
Today I took my camera along to Ferrari's on Oak Street
, which is an annual event for Ferrari owners in t
he Midwest to show off their motors. I'm not a petrol head by any means but I know 'nice' when I see it and there was a lot of nice today. Oak Street between the Lake and State St, is commonly known as the most exclusive throughfare in the city and expensive boutiques were added too by rich men and young beauties strolling along with ridiculous shades on in overcast weather.
This morning we played our last game of the spring 'soccer' season and got roundly beaten to finish bottom of the table. Tuesday and Wednesday this week I will be in Colorado with work but will fly back in time see Madonna in her Confessions tour
Ok, hear me out. A work friend got some freebie tickets and after he suggested it I realised that despite never actually owning any of her albums, there have been enough Madge songs over the years that I have liked that she might be worth a watch and male intuition tells me she's probably quite a performer. I remember some mates and I tearing up the dance floor in Bournemouth to 'Holiday'
as a 17-year old on my first ever holiday without my Mum & Dad.
Hold that thought.... that is a bloody good memory. Oh well I will see if she has aged as well as me on Wednesday!
