Chicago Air Show

So I watched the air show from the 33rd floor balcony at a condo on Lake Shore Drive yesterday. It was pretty epic. First time I've been to an air show where you have to look down at the planes. Plus, when they buzzed the building, it's was undeniably awesome. I tried shooting the show with my kit lens, and it was no bueno. That lens is just not long enough for something like that. I hopped on eBay and found a 55-200 VR for $150 shipped! So yea, that's on the way, thanks internets!

As soon as we left, it started pouring. The walk to the subway was a little wet. Saw a friend I haven't seen in a long time on the train, that was fun.

Slummed it on the couch for the rest of the day. Watched Fanboys (worth it, for being 90 minutes of Star Wars in-jokes) and Zach and Miri (still a great movie). Finally finished downloading season one of Mad Men (I'm pretty sure I'm the only person who's never seen it).

I was awoken by a pretty major storm last night at around 5:45AM. It's been a while since we've gotten a good storm, more to come today, I hear. Only thing is that it apparently knocked out my fucking wireless router. It's just sitting there, totally dark. Everything else is working, so that's weird. It's going to be pretty weaksauce to not have internet for a bit until I get it worked out.

I'm hoping that the bolts for my rear hubs come today, I need to pull my rear spacer so I can take the car in for a (hopefully) warrantied wheel bearing replacement. But if it's going to rain all day, I don't want to be wrenching on the car.

That's all for now.
