We Love You Too, Gaper's Block!!

Category: Daily Diary

Soooo, it is Thursday at 6:30 p.m.  I have stopped working waiting for, you know, the BIG EVENT during which I imagine I will experience something akin to "pushing a wet St. Bernard through a cat door" (as an online acquaintance once wrote.) 

I'm still in my pajamas.  I'm not proud of this.  But there it is.  I'm hiding from the mailperson because I'm LARGE!  ENORMOUS!  CRABBY!  You could re-brand me as "Just like the old Jeannie, but now with more PAUNCH!  And BUTT!"  You could actually write that sentence across my posterior and have room for many, many exclamation points.

I was catching up on my blog reading and tuned into one of my all time favorites, Gaper's Block, which covers Chicago like no other media outlet can.  Funny, insightful, timely, creative.  I'm a big fan.  And what did I find there?  Hmmm?

Their top ten lists for 2005.  Including:

Top 10 Chicago bloggers we wish we knew (but don't)...and they put HouseInProgress on the list.


Man, maybe it's the prenatal hormones but being on the Gaper's Block list made me feel all "Sally Field at the Oscars" kind of gushy.  It has geeky, gawky, middle school me all aflutter that cool, hip, dreamy high school senior Gapers Block said "hi!" to me in the hallway before math class!  Gah!

We love you too, Gaper's Block staff.  Have a great 2006.

ah, that's just the way I felt when I got a real e-mail back from you Jeannie, Congrats and Good Luck. Can't wait to hear the real story of child birth as only you can tell it! Aimee

very cute! and of course they like you- they really like you! :)

I'm sure the mailman has seen much, MUCH worse on his rounds around town than you in your pj's........ I wouldn't worry too much. I hope time's flying for you!
