So the Holidays are over and it is um like Winter. Flying on planes too much can get annoying. I really miss my cat when I am gone. I do not think the Bears chances of winning the Super Bowl are too high but I do want them to make it. I have not watched a Bulls game in a week and I want to.


Email Attachment of the Week

Joke of the Week


I am passing this on to you because it definitely works, and we could all use a little more calmness in our lives. By following simple advice heard on the Dr. Phil show, you too can find inner peace. Dr. Phil proclaimed, "The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started and have never finished." So, I looked around my house to see all the things I started and hadn't finished, and before leaving the house this morning, I finished off a bottle of Merlot, a bottle of White Zinfandel, a bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream, a bottle of Kahula, a package of Oreos, the remainder of my old Prozac prescription, the rest of the cheesecake, some Doritos and a box of chocolates. You have no idea how freaking good I feel. Please pass this on to those whom you think might be in need of inner peace.

I don't really care who I room with. I thought that I was going to room with Hubes due to a slam on the Bears from an earlier e-mail. ;-)

I am up for rooming with whoever - probably Paul F. I will be there at like 4:30 on Thursday, so let me know what the plans are for that day. If all else fails I can find a bar to hang out at until someone else gets there. Thanks.

hi guys. i need some info from you in regards to lodging. eds mom has been helpin us out and getting us a better deal on the room but we need to book now to assure they stay cheaper.

note below, it sounds like we are gonna do this prepay to get them cheaper but then they will be nonrefundable

i need to know who you are going to room with so we can put the reservation in your name. i am rooming with the bachelor (roman) and we are calling our room "the party room" and we are gonna dispose of empty beer cans in our bathtub.

thanks guys.

Ok guys.

My mom sent me the reservations for the Holiday Inn. There are 2 rooms under Jay and Mark and 1 under mine. Just the way it worked out, it really doesn’t matter so don’t panic.

The cost per night is $161.50 if we prepay. I think we are close enough to book. They would be non refundable, but I don’t see us canceling unless some emergency happened.

The cost if we want to pay when we get there is $181. $20 a night adds up over 4 nights.

What we want to do is find out who is rooming with whom and have my mom reserve each room under a name that is staying in that room. That way dividing up the bill would be easy.

Are we the only 3 coming in Thursday night? We may want to bunk up in 1 room that night (roll in a cot or something).

Let me know what you think.

We need to verify that this is the Holiday Inn we want:
