The 8th night of drinking with my brother ended on Monday when we put a couple of newlyweds on their first night of their honeymoon on the path to love and happiness, although the groom admitting that he had already purchased the $29.99 hotel porn package for their 3-day stay did concern me a little!
My brother completed the set of Chicago Addick
family members in Chicago this summer with my parents here in June, my son in August and then my brother. They were certainly all good times and each enjoyed the city in different ways.
So with just 3 nights at home in almost a month, last night I was in bed at 8.30pm. It was fabulous and I slept like a baby dreaming of Big Chris' 2nd goal at the KC Cauldron as I managed to see it on You Tube
before I poured my bedtime cocoa. By the way did you read some off those Hull fans' reactions
after the game? "Charlton are a team of overrated, cheating, nobodies,"
was my personal fave. You know when you are good when opposing fans spout that kind of tripe.
The next few weeks will be relatively calm. Work should drop off some, my liver should get a well-deserved rest and hopefully the continuing great weather
here will help the bags under my eyes change to match the rest of my complexion.
Tomorrow does signal the beginning of the Chicago International Film Festival
and we have tickets to the Kite Runner premiere tomorrow night.
On Sunday my football team hope to continue their fine form. We moved up a level after winning the 'summer league.' It's now the 'fall league' and we are doing well. My brother was witness to me scoring, making one and winning a penalty on Sunday night. A strange role-reversal as I used to drive him all around London when he was younger watching him play, once being made to run the line and giving offside to rule out a 30-yarder from him in the days before interference with play. He never has forgiven me.
Keep an eye to the right of this page
to see how the Cubs progress in the play-offs, tonight being the opening game.
And then soon enough October 19th will come around and we go on holiday to Japan, which should be fascinating. Has anyone been?
