My life seems to keep coming back to Chicago. It's odd, I had an interview for a college scholarship up there a few years ago, but I missed my plane. Now BP is thinking about sending me up there Friday for an interview.
I'll make sure to double check the ticket this time. It's no doubt 20 below zero or some other ungodly temperature in Chicago right now. Frelling heck I hate the cold.

Chicago! Probably a good sign.

It never, ever gets that cold up in Chicago. I lived there for 10+ years. I used to take a commuter train, then walk 1o-15 blocks to work most everyday for three years. I'd occasionally cab that distance if it was snowing or raining hard, but that happens less often than you'd think.

All you need is a good wool or leather winter coat, and some transit maps. New York it isn't. =P

Well, after ten-some years, I'd probably adjust to the weather too. :-p As someone who wasn't acclimated to the weather, however, and used to Houston's environ, Chicago around the lake was hellish cold in December. If you're used to colder weather, though, it probably isn't such a big deal. I know I was praying for thermal underwear when I was there, though.
