hey.. what if I make up a mix cd and send it to you, and you can just play it and announce the songs (or I can be a REAL virtual DJ and make it up like a podcast)

Like.. a virtual DJ gig. Heh...

I have no idea when I'll be back in Chicago - probably when the weather warms up and I have less danger of flying in a plane that could skid off a runway at Midway.

My sister is pregnant with her second child, so I have to get back there before the second kid gets here.

Hopefully I can bring my boyfriend with me.
