The holidays are all over for yet another year. But the nice thing about them is that the gifts you got can last you for that year span. As long as they aren't candy or other food (which would be lucky if they lasted a day here!), you can enjoy gifts possibly for ever and ever. A good example would be one of my favorite gifts from my sister, the CTA shower curtain. This fantastic piece of decor goes wonderfully in my fire engine red bathroom. And it keeps me occupied when I'm in the shower in the morning. Not only that, but it's a great conversation piece. Everyone who walks through my front door can see into the bathroom (good thing I keep it spic and span) and consequently asks me about my new curtain. I love it. So you see? This is the gift that keeps on giving. Probably only to me, since I'm likely the only one in the entire world who could get excited about a shower curtain. At any rate, thanks, Adrian! How about everyone who's reading? What kinds of gifts will keep you occupied for the next year? Or longer?
A former New Yorker-turned Tennesseean-turned Chicagoan who sometimes keeps himself so busy, he barely has a moment to sit down. Of course I sit for long enough to keep this blog. I'm a self-proclaimed news and fact junkie, and I love writing about funny, touching, amazing, annoying, crazy, or just plain boring things that I encounter in this crazy city we know as Chicago.
