so yesterday i wasn't feeling too good, i left work early went home, took a nap and then met up with Santis at Cracked Chanclas bookstore. i always feel better after talking or seeing santis. i actually went there to see cracked chancla too and was a little disappointed to see her husband...no offense to her husband...at her usual sit. i walked in looking for her but she was no where to be found (hey this sounds like the beginning of a story with a happy ending). anyway, i waited for santis and then he walked in. we saw each other and hugged (dude i miss the old days!!, why do people have to grow up, damn us for maturing!!) Santis and i talked for a while, i told him about my adventure to the strip joint last weekend. "Guys?" he asks me. "noooo girls!!" i tell him. you should have seen the smile on his face. i told him i had fun which i did but i was very very sober so whenever the girls came over to me i got tense and in my head i kept telling them, "go away!!, go away!!" i think it would have been different had i been intoxicated. why did i go there? you're asking. Well my friends thought it would be a good way to distract me from thinking about mr. K. i have to admit that when i was at the place i was like "mr. K? mr K who? who is he?" nothing works better then seeing naked women to forget about a guy..hehehehee. anywho, after spending some time with santis he drove me to la casa del pueblo, a mexican grocery store. i love going to mexican grocery stores!!! i always want to buy everything. anywho, i got some nopalitos,tortillas de trigo (santis, they did have them!!), aguacates, frijoles and rice (i'm planning on having a "healthy" burrito for dinner tonight) it was nice seeing you santis, i wished cc would have been there but oh well, i will use this as an excuse to go back, ehehehe.
So i've decided to volunteer at the University of Chicago Hospital in Hyde Park. i will be working with latino families going through crisis. i start in two weeks!! i'm actually very excited about that!! i'll see how that goes. i'm also looking into volunteering at the DCFS (department for children and family services). my landlord told me that i would be good with the "drug infested babies", my landlord, you gotta love the guy, very sweet old man. anywho, i'll see how that goes as well.
i really don't have plans for this weekend. My friend, the sportscaster, is in town. his in town because he will be working this weekend working for the chicago rush!!! yay!!! indoor arena football season is here!!! the only reason i know about this is because of Mr. sportcaster. he lives in atlanta, works as a dj on a radio station and around this time he comes to chicago whenever chicago rush plays, yay for me!!! how did i meet him, you are asking? i met him at a bar, yes i know not good place to meet guys but i was not looking for anyone so i really didn't care talking to him. he seemed to be a cool guy, we exchanged numbers and have been friends since then, it's been about two years. he's been wanting me to visit him in atlanta and i think i will sometime this summer. anywho, i'll be going out to dinner tonight. Tomorrow i will be having dinner with mr. joe and then we might go out to see a movie down in andersonville. Sunday is superbowl sunday!!!! i'm not at all a football fan but my brothers are so all of la familia is meeting at my parents to watch the game. la familia plays this square thingy game that i totally do not understand but it seems to be quite alot of money that the winner ends up getting. wish me luck!!
