Where's my Chicken Report?!

Hey.

I gotta new job and a new blog.

Job: Since, according to the guy that tested me, I'm the best truck driver ever tested, I decided to go for the big money and school while I wait for an architectural job to appear.
Technically, I'm still a truck driver sometimes, but it's intermodal. That means I'll be dealing with railroads and trucks and computers. It took a week of training just to learn the computer workflow.

Blah blah... Bottom line: I'm home every day / evening, make a lot more money and can be in bands / take classes. But the shifts are like 5am-5pm with no official holidays (trains don't stop for Jesus).

New blog: Try This, It's Awful
Remember Beer Frame? No? Good, then you won't think this is derivative. Actually, Lucas' pamphlets were much more design / product-ridiculous oriented than my Jackass version of Guilty Displeasures.

First subject: Scrapple.
Future subjects: picking up hitchhikers, green tea Kit Kats, back waxing...

My list is long, though your suggestions are welcome.

You are welcome.

Robots work there.

Chicago is kinda boring, btw. But that'll change.

Chicago is boring? How can that be?!

I don't think I entirely understand your new job, but it sounds good if it lets you do those other things too.

There's almost too much going on to filter and deal with in Chicago, yet I still feel like this is a small Midwestern town. It's hard to pin down. NYC feels like a big city, but this feels like a huge network of neighborhoods.

Having a job here might be the anchor that makes it all decipherable.
The job involves organizing (on the ground) the taking of things on / off trains, trucks, into and out of clients. Mundane, but I am unfortunately good at it.

Philly loves their scrapple. I enjoy it. It's mostly cornmeal, but yeah, flavored with all the parts that weren't otherwise worth eating. I've seen vegetarian versions, but doesn't that, in some ways, seem even more wrong?
