For the past couple months, the theme of many of my activities could be described as ‘things I should do before I leave Chicago’. Having a moving date (Sunday!) adds a certain urgency to one’s remaining time in a locale, I’ve always found.

The day before, Claire and I did the screen printing that we had been meaning to do for a while. She documented the whole experience on her own fabulous blog. Seriously, go have a look. You’ll be impressed. Cat pictures gratis. Lots of posts about books gratis. I know you all like books.
Update: As per Commenter #1’s request, here is a senior portrait-esque pic of me at the conservatory. Good thing Annie caught me being my candid self by the sunflowers!
