I've been looking for a good guidebook to Illinois, and I've not been finding much. There are a bunch about Chicago, but not the rest of the state. Maybe that means that I should write one :) I'm semi-serious about that. Working title: The Other Illinois: Get Out of Chicago and See the Rest of the State! It could be fodder for a lot of road trips. And maybe an article or two. I need a decent DSLR though. (It's always something.)

A Road Trip Illinois blog would be a good idea too. It would get me out of the house and exploring. It sounds like fun!

I found a state park about 2.5 hours away from here that I really want to hike. It's kind of hilly (it's in Eastern Illinois), but that might build my leg muscles up.

I solved the problem with my boss about my working days while she's gone. I'm going to take the Monday after my Sunday conference presentation off, and work the rest of the week, including Friday. Including the Sunday, that would be a full week. And then I'm going to work Wednesday - Friday the following week.

There is a horrific fire in a tall apartment building in London. Most of the building seems to be ablaze. Those poor people trapped inside....I hope that firefighters contain the blaze soon.

I've been watching the coverage from London on CNN's live streaming feed for hours (six people killed, 30 injured; three attackers shot dead; eight minutes elapsed time from the first call to the police to shooting the attackers--way to go, Metropolitan Police). Now the live feed isn't loading, so I wonder if Comcast throttled my Internet. It's probably a sign that I should log off.

I did get my laundry done, which was my one contribution to productivity. I talked to my mom, but we didn't have a lot to say, so we cut it short.

I'm thinking of going to sleep soon and getting up early to get a few things done before work.

Casualties after London Bridge 'knife and van incident'

Damn. Following the updates. (You'd think that I'd know what the time change is to London by now, but I had to look it up.)

I think that it's only a matter of time until we have such attacks here.
