LOTR:The Two Towers was so fun. I was expecting much less and was surprised by how great it was. And as we drove home last night Chicago was cold and dreary and drab when compared to the 3 hours I had just spent sitting happily in the dark.

Itís snowing big fat flakes of snow. And we walked to a hole in the wall Indian place in the Loop that I had no idea existed. Down a flight of stairs and there it is: grungy, florescent lit and full of Indian/Pakistani peeps eating at long tables. I recognized some of them from work. The food was cheap and good. What other places are hiding from me? Is there a hole in the wall noodle stand that I donít know about also? Down that one street I never use? And up some stairs I've never seen?
