I’m big on birthdays. I mean big. I’m not sure why. It’s not like I hope for huge mind-blowing presents or anything like that. It’s just so exciting to have a day where everyone congratulates you for being born and hanging around for another year. I also like dragging the special days out for as long as possible– to milk it for all it’s worth. It only comes once a year after all.
Now my birthday is in August, so this post is pretty late. But it was action packed and covered in NIkes. So bette late than never.
The Field Museum exhibition on the 1893 World Fair held in Chicago and Egypt
I love this museum. It’s big and beautiful and filled with tons of great goodies. The exhibit on The World Fair was interesting. What a sight it must have been back in the day. Also, an Egyptian tomb was transferred all the way to Chicago and now stands on display in the grand room. You can walk around it and even climb up into it.
Seadog Extreme Thrill Ride on Lake Michigan
Now this was fun! Imagine a giant speed boat looping around, with the city as your backdrop. Be prepared to get soaked.
Oddball Comedy Fest at Tinley Park
Sarah Silverman, Amy Schumer, Bill Burr, Chris Hardwick, Jim Jefferies, and Hannibal Buress performed and I laughed my face off.
