First I HAVE to address the local craziness that is happening in Pittsburgh before I blab on about the wonderfulness (and crazy gas prices) of Chicago.
University of Pittsburgh or Pitt, as the students and locals call it, has experienced at least FIFTEEN bomb threats to date on the famed Cathedral of Learning and other buildings on campus. The police are offering a reward of $50,000 for the identity of the culprit. This cuckoo kid has disrupted many classes and cost the university thousands of dollars every time they sweep the building for the bomb. Thank god no one has been hurt. If you know anything please help stop this craziness that is makes the most livable city in America unsafe!
To read more click here. The numbers are not updated from today's threats. As I am writing this now there has been ANOTHER bomb threat - WTF?!
Gary has been planning on attending the annual AACR (American Association Cancer Research) conference for a couple months and I have been hesitating on going with him because my older and very close sister is expecting her very first child!
Last minute I decided to accompany him and I loved every minute of my stay and was happy I didn't have to be separated from my lover. I am definitely adding Chicago to my favorite places to visit list and plan on going again. There is so much to do! And my sister didn't have her baby yet.
