I spent the weekend in Milwaukee with some of my besties! Sometimes it's nice to get away from your normal environment, even if only for a day or two.
Eric, Nate, Johnny, Topher and I decided to escape the Chicago cold for...the even colder Milwaukee.
But we had a blast!
Apparently, I was so excited that I proclaimed, "The cheaps are drinker here!" And that was even before any alcohol touched my lips!
We ate at the fantastic 'La Fuente' mexican restaurant, which had excellent margaritas, and then proceeded to go out to the bars, where we danced the night away!
In fact, Johnny was even involved in a danceoff....and of course he won!
The people were friendly and the drinks were flowing. Can't wait for our next trip guys!
On another note: Registration for the 2010 Chicago Marathon opened today, and naturally, I have already registered. This will be my 3rd one, as I clearly am a glutton for punishment!
If you are planning on running it, let me know! I love to keep connected to fellow runners, as it pushes me along and inspires me. If you have ever thought about doing it, I urge you to sign up. Do it quickly though, before the field is full and registration closes. Let the training begin!
Finally, I watched the Grammy awards last night, and I have to say that this was probably one of the WORST shows they have ever put on!
There were barely any awards handed out (9 awards in 3 and 1/2 hours???) Many of the performances looked like they were just thrown together (Jamie Foxx, Drake, Lil Wayne, Taylor Swift!...shame on you!)
The real saving grace of the show, and the spotlight moment of the night, was the absolutely amazing Pink!
Breathtaking doesn't even begin to describe her performance. When I come up with a better word for it, I will let you know.
She wasn't the big award winner, but she stole the damn show by giving an acrobatic performance that was classy, yet exciting!
If Pink can sing, do all that, and STILL sound incredible, then nobody has an excuse to lip sync EVER AGAIN!
A performance with 50 backup dancers couldn't compare to her alone on the stage.
Unfortunately, this morning, the reviews of last night's show include her, but they give her a mere blurb. It is sad that we live in a society where the media can talk endlessly about the disastrous mess of a performance given a couple of months ago by Adam Lambert, but barely give a sentence or two to the brilliant display of artistry that Pink gave us.
Oh well... Pink, you rocked it! Thanks for that performance.
