The weekend in Facebook

Monday, Jul 28, 2014

* Rep. Greg Harris

Really inappropriate dreams starring my friends Guy Zakrzewski, James Hallberg Piechocinski, a random bag lady, Little Jim’s and a copy of the state budget.

What, no bacon or Sharknado references?

* Will Caskey

Toddler’s new favorite toy is a small plastic hammer. So he was hanging out with me and tried to hammer the window. I said no, off limits.

Then he hit himself on the head with it and got upset. I comforted him and said that’s why we don’t hit ourselves.

He looked at me defiantly and hit himself in the head again.

Insert political metaphor here.

I’m sure we can come up with something.

* Anders Lindall

You know you’re dragging when … you try to plug your phone charger into your granola bar.

* John Fritchey

How did I get this far in the day without knowing that it’s National Tequila Day?

* Rep. Rob Martwick’s band “Little Egypt” performed at Jeff Fest over the weekend

What did you post?

    Picture of some new lawn art in the rock garden … plus a few comments on various posts.


  2. - Ron Burgundy - Monday, Jul 28, 14 @ 11:15 am:

    I’m musically inclined, so I celebrated being in power pop heaven watching Tommy Keene and Matthew Sweet perform Friday, and congratulated Weird Al on his first #1 album.


  3. - Commander Norton - Monday, Jul 28, 14 @ 11:20 am:

    Nothing that exciting… or disturbing.


  4. - Streeterville Guy - Monday, Jul 28, 14 @ 11:26 am:

    I laughed at Dan Proft for his outrage that Divvy bikes don’t look cool, and noted that the last time I complained about bikes not looking cool, I was in 5th grade.

    https://www.facebook.com/danproft/posts/10152266158006238?fref=nf

    And so much for using “Streeterville Guy” as a nickname. Guess that cover is blown.


  5. - Amalia - Monday, Jul 28, 14 @ 11:26 am:

    what is Martwick’s music like? for that matter, what is he like?


  6. - Streeterville Guy - Monday, Jul 28, 14 @ 11:27 am:

    Of course that is a link to Dan’s page. I don’t post comments directly on his page. He and his readers take things a bit too seriously, so I kept the discussion of his status on my own page.


  7. - Jimmy - Monday, Jul 28, 14 @ 11:53 am:

    Will - don’t let your Toddler hammer your wooden furniture. I learned the hard way that plastic hammers can make an impact…


  8. - a drop in - Monday, Jul 28, 14 @ 12:16 pm:

    I sometimes post news articles under the heading of “People unclear of the concept”

    Some of these listed facebook posts qualify.


  9. - RNUG - Monday, Jul 28, 14 @ 12:17 pm:

    - Streeterville Guy - Monday, Jul 28, 14 @ 11:26 am:

    re cover blown … that’s why I didn’t post a link to my lawn art


  10. - Belle - Monday, Jul 28, 14 @ 12:46 pm:

    Couple things–fortunately, not silly stuff:
    Madeline Albright is on ‘Face the Nation’ and as typical is wearing a pin…today, it is massive dove pin in the shape of a Peace Dove. I hope the symbol spreads a little peace.
    Very interesting article…especially if you plan on being employed in 2030 since you may want to scan the jobs to see if your job will still be around in 15 years.

  11. - Chicago Cynic - Monday, Jul 28, 14 @ 1:09 pm:

    I would tell you but don’t want to out myself like Streeterville Guy.

    Oh, and SHARKNADO!!!


  12. - Stones - Monday, Jul 28, 14 @ 1:17 pm:

    I never post anything political. With all do respect most people don’t really care what my political opinions are. I like to keep my Facebook page positive and fun. Posted a couple of photos with friends over to weekend doing recreational activities.


  13. - Grandson of Man - Monday, Jul 28, 14 @ 1:17 pm:

    I almost never post on Facebook, but this weekend I posted a picture of my beloved dog, who we put to sleep last week. She was at least 14 years old.


  14. - Belle - Monday, Jul 28, 14 @ 1:40 pm:

    I am so sorry for your loss, G of M. Such a tough decision—been there more than once and it is always hard to make the decision. It’s even harder to be without your friend. Unlike politicians, they are terrific. They are our real friends.


  15. - Person 8 - Monday, Jul 28, 14 @ 1:40 pm:

    Big Hurt going into the hall!


  16. - 32nd Ward Roscoe Village - Monday, Jul 28, 14 @ 1:46 pm:

    I posted a picture of the Reserve Champion ribbon my 4-H son got at the Lake County Fair in Photography II. I think he is an alternative state fair delegate, so on to Springfield!


  17. - Anonymous - Monday, Jul 28, 14 @ 2:04 pm:

    Posted pictures taken in Vancouver on way to airport for plane to O’Hare. Returned from 12 day land and cruise tour of Alaska.

    The humpback whales are on to something–summers in Alaska and winters in Maui!


  18. - Nearly Normal - Monday, Jul 28, 14 @ 2:06 pm:

    Anonymous at 2:04 was me. Been away too long and forgot to use my nickname.


  19. - Dirty Red - Monday, Jul 28, 14 @ 2:40 pm:

    That information is for subscribers only.


  20. - Grandson of Man - Monday, Jul 28, 14 @ 3:01 pm:

    Thank you for your sympathy, Belle. My family and I adored the dog. The dog was family and our dear friend and companion for many years.

    You’re right, it’s hard to make the decision, so we put it off for a short while.

    Will……re: hammering your head - “I do it because it feels so good when I stop”
