A bear with a sore head
I'm nursing a cracking hangover today after getting all dressed up last night to attend a charity ball at Lincoln Park Zoo
. The theme was Bollywood, which I didn't get, unless it was something to do with the champagne that was flowing.
I'm trying to tell myself that it was for a good cause though. Lincoln Park Zoo is one of only 3 free entry zoos in the country and is well worth a wander around. Situated bang in the middle of the city, it is open every day, has 1,250 animals and was founded in 1868 with a couple of swans. Now you can see everything from polar bears to gorillas.
I was pleased to get this week at work over with, which probably accentuated my taking advantage of the free booze last night. The month of May is my most stressful at work, although September is already looking like it may compete. Something I realised Friday was that it is now a month since I was out of the office travelling, which must be some kind of record.
Of course at work I have an element of control over my destiny unlike my kitchen installation, which installment #96 is still looking like Laurel & Hardy were hired to do it.
