Haven't been especially good about posting lately. I have some notes from scribbled posts on the way to/from work that I've written in a journal, but now isn't the time.

I just want to let everyone know that every day is defriending amnesty day around here.

And/or (for example, if I'm a frequent commenter/friend of yours but you don't have me friended back, thus I have become some kind of imposition, or I've done something to offend you, or whatever): if you have an issue with me, please let me know. Either we can work through it or we can go our separate ways.

Thing is, it would be nice to actually know these things so I'm not sitting here with no idea, thinking it's all ok, doing the same annoying thing over and over when I could stop, or what not.

I will be in Chicagoland from July 6th through 9th. Put in a time off request and let's make plans.
I can't stay in your apartment because I'm seriously allergic to cats, but lunch or an early dinner would be fantastic! ♥

Got any recommendations for GF-friendly restaurants?

I will see what I can do, anyway - I've taken off a lot of time recently. If I can't get the whole three days off, I can definitely make plans for an evening or two or bug Jason about scheduling around a day (the seniors love me).

What are your plans for being here?

I really don't like the owner of Karyn's, but her triad of restaurants (Karyn's Raw, Karyn's Cooked and Karyn's on Green) are definitely good GF options, particularly the Raw place. I am not a raw food fan and it's still up there in terms of food. I'll have to bug Jessi - she has a friend on Yelp who's got celiac disease who goes out to eat all the time. Chicago's actually surprisingly good about it recently.

I believe that I am staying with Joy outside of the city, and I'm not sure what we're doing. I'd like to get into the city for a day at least, but Friday I have to get on the train home in the evening, so I would only be able to do lunch at the latest. Really, it's like I'm there for 2-1/2 days.

I don't really like doing touristy-things, and I probably won't have any money anyway, so I'm not sure what I would want to do. Walk around, live like a local I guess.

Worst-case scenario, I can forage for things I can eat.

I'll let you know when I get my work schedule. It'd be hard to take off anymore time - I have a family reunion the weekend of the 16 and have four or five days requested off - but I'd really like to see you. We're not super touristy people anyway, no worries.

Where outside the city? The suburbs are a big place.

I just remembered rice counts as at least semi-legit gluten-free, so our newfound appreciation for cheap Vietnamese food might interest you. I'll keep you updated on other ideas I have, we've got a month after all.
