Because I'm insane.

I got a MacBook Pro! I have always wanted a laptop and I am finally able to afford one. I am in love.

I do a weird thing though. It took me a long time to finally decide to buy it. Many people would think the reason is because I wasn't prepared to make such a large purchase, but my thinking is much more unsound. It's because I was emotionally attached to my MacMini. I don't want to give it up because it has been with me for so long and I'm afraid of hurting it's feelings. I realize how silly my logic is, but I still can't seem to just let it go. I know I could donate it or sell it but I feel like I have to hold onto it.

i really need to get better about posting. geezy petes.

the taste

I went to The Taste on Saturday with my family and boy was it insane. For those who don't live in Chicago or have never been: imagine a sea. A sea of sweaty disgusting people all eating and breathing and rubbing up against you with food in their mouths. But it can also be really fun and it's a good opportunity to try something new. My knockout favorite of the day was the cochinita pibil tacos from the Adobo Grill.

the taste 2

One major disappointment was a gelato stand that kept running out of cups. We seriously went there like 3 times and every time we got to the front of the line they ran out. It was getting to the point where we were all thoroughly tired and sweaty so I settled on a frozen chocolate dipped banana and everyone else got cheesecake. I ended up enjoying the banana more than I expected. It was almost creamy like ice cream and the chocolate was pliable enough that it stayed on for the duration of the eating without cracking off.
