Each time she roams, Chicago is calling her home.

 What else do you do when your sister announces she'll be moving halfway across the county in a week (!!)?  You invite her friends out to treat her to dinner and get roaring drunk and sappy and think about how much you'll miss her and try your hardest not to cry, of course!

A bunch of us got together at Osha Thai and had way too many (but just enough) cocktails and tried to ignore that fact that soon this group of people will be spread out over a pretty big map.

I don't know if you've noticed but I kind of love my sister a lot.  She's keeps me sane on those off days when I feel like just running off to a place where no one's forced to be "responsible", whatever that means.  I don't know what I'm going to do with myself when she leaves, but I know I'll be crying like a baby when her plane flies off into the sunset.  Or away from the sunset, rather, since she's headed east.  Whatever, the fact remains I'll miss her and I plan on bothering her on Skype a lot, just like in the old days when we lived in separate countries/continents.

Chicago, you better take care of her!  She's a Californian and therefore much cooler than you just by birthright, so watch yourself.


  1. Oh, I'm So Excited For Her, And So Sad That We Will Be Spread So Far And Wide. Thank God For Computers/Internet. And Yes, Treat My Baby Well, Chicago!

    1. Are you going to be in San Francisco before she leaves?

  2. I hate it when people you love, move so far away, but what a send off you have been giving her! She must be floating getting all that love! Your blog makes me want to visit San Francisco again! I've been twice, and it definitely ranks us my favorite US city.
