Neglecting the Blog
Sorry to be gone for so long. This weekend Katie came to visit us and her, Kristen, and I joined our other friends in celebrating Keith's birthday. We celebrated by participating in my favorite activity, karaoke. But this has a slight twist. There are a few establishments in Chicago, known as Korean Karaoke bars. What this means is that you get your own room for your group, with couches, big screen tv's, wireless mics, and a karaoke system. You pay 35-40 bucks an hour, depending on the size of the room, as well as paying for your drinks/food (if you eat there, which I don't think anyone does) and for this extra cost, you can belt out Journey songs in the privacy of your friends and you never have to fight with anyone to sing, except for your friends. You are in control of the order of the songs, you just punch in your number and it keeps a running queue of songs. It's my favorite place in the world.
