Tuesday Tube

Happy Tuesday friends!  I first came across this video while "watching" the Bears game with Em and Dave on Sunday.  This commercial had me cracking up and clapping to myself because I absolutely love the SNL skit it is based off of.  My friend Matt and I have joked about the Superfan skit a couple times and I have insisted that I grew up with a neighbor down the street who talks like these guys.  Even though I technically grew up in the suburbs, Chicago is my city. 

I'm actually reading a book right now that takes place in dystopian Chicago.  The book is Divergent by Veronica Roth.  It's a really good story so far.  I decided to read it because there's a movie coming out in March and the movie looked interesting.  It reminded me a bit of Hunger Games in that it's a dystopian story with a strong female lead.  Anyway, I really like the book so far, but the idea of a broken down Chicago is extremely sad to me.  There are scenes at an abandoned Navy Pier, mentionings of my beautiful Lake Michigan that dried up into a marsh, and a Chicago River that dries up completely.  Sad, sad.

Enjoy!!
