Right now I am in Chicago at a Homewood Suites hotel (fast, free WiFi - yes! Broken laptop power supply - noooo!), and I'm writing on my iPhone yet again Although I've yet to visit anywhere downtown, I've seen the Sears Tower and walked around in a park/forest preserve where I got a few photos. That park had so many mosquitoes...in one part I had numerous attack me (including some who bit me through my shirt), and although I got a few, there were way too many to kill, so I departed rather quickly from that path.
Later, what looked like a mosquito landed on my arm, but if it was a skeeter, it was the biggest one I have ever seen: it was around an inch-and-a-half long and about the same in height. I didn't try to figure out if it really was a giant, mutant mosquito or just something harmless that looked like one; I brushed it off as quickly as possible. I daresay getting stuck by its nose (if that's what it was) would have been quite unpleasant.
Now that my cousin's boot camp is done (it happened yesterday), we've just been hanging out at the hotel...my siblings have been in the pool a lot (and I did last night as well - gasp!). Now we're about to get some famous Chicago deep dish pizza - hooray! By the way, what do you think of the new Blogger interface?
Unfortunately, I dropped my iPhone on a hard surface for the first time yesterday (I'd dropped it multiple times before, but not onto concrete), and it has a scratch/nick now. At least it still works fine, and the scuff isn't very big. I really need to get a case for it before I really damage my phone.
