oh dearest credit card,

i promise that after today i will treat you good and start paying off the balance and everything. i promise i promise i promise. thank you oh so much for this treat, the best treat i think i've ever given myself in fact: a weekend away for an amazing event [A Very Milky Christmas 6] and a meet up with the fabulous stephanie impossible! i have to admit that before i talked to her tonight, i was still a tad wishy washy, since i am missing parties given by both seahouse and gardenhead, AND i am missing mirah, but since i'm pretty sure she's living on our coast now...i'm going to party with the midwest kids!

i don't really know how train trips work. during my layover in chicago, i wonder if anyone can come hang out with me, or if it's like the airport, where you can't leave the station. on the trip to MKE, i have an almost 2 hour gap in chicago and on the way back i have a 4 hour gap. is anyone knowledgeable about trains who'd care to give me the 411?

wait wait wait. do you think tenoch is hotter than julio [gael garcia bernal]? cos if so, i'm pretty sure you might be the only person who agrees with me on this one.

most train stations i've ever been to are super lax, they don't care what you do. just make sure you are there with a few minutes to get on the train, and my advice is be there with PLENTY of time, so you can get a window seat.

i don't know if you need this information, but:

1. BRING A BLANKET ON THE TRAIN. it sometimes gets really cold.
2. bring snacks, but also bring bottled water or something. the drinks are expensive & i'm not so sure about train water.
3. bring kleenex just in case they run out of tp.
4. when you get to union station in chicago, you can go out the doors (turn RIGHT in the large ceiling'd area & then go Left -- clinton street -- it's sort of hidden & isn't one of the main exits off the lobby thing) & there's an el station about two or three blocks down, if you want to brave the el. if you go out of that exit, i think you can see the sears tower, but i'm not exactly sure. i don't think downtown is that close, but again, i don't remember. but the el is close-ish. it should take you five-ten minutes to get to the station from union, if you want to walk that far. doesn't dustin live there?
5. they give you shitty pillows on the train, so if you need a substantial pillow, bring it.
6. the train stations really don't care when you get there. i got there five minutes before we were supposed to depart both times & i was fine. the trains sometimes fill up, though & if you want a "good" seat (meaning not by the bathroom or the stinky man), then you should get there about fifteen-twenty minutes early, because they don't really start seating that early.
7. bring entertainment.
8. train 333! my favorite number.
9. have fun. :*
