    Reading the Cap Fax blog on my phone. While fishing.


  2. - Oswego Willy - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:01 pm:

    Cooking for 50 men, making cannoli too


  3. - Bored Chairman - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:01 pm:

    Basement. Doritos. Wifi. Cap fax.


  4. - RNUG - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:02 pm:

    I’m going to be traveling (already started a bit), and I expect to spend a lot of the summer playing with cars. During any downtime, read some more mystery and history books.

    If I’m in town, occasionally lift a few beverages with some friends locked out by the State if it comes to that.


  5. - Team Sleep - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:02 pm:

    I’ll be going to Lego Land to see if I can build some alternate universe of working government.


  6. - nona - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:03 pm:

    Watching national Fox News play up the impasse by depicting a heroic Republican taking on the mean Obama Democrats.


  7. - Oswego Willy - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:03 pm:

    Going to Legislator golf outings with fearing to be seen…


  8. - Hyman Roth - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:04 pm:

    I want everyone to enjoy the cake……so…enjoy!


  9. - Commander Norton - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:04 pm:

    Plotting all the distances from which I can drive back in 48 hours. I hear the Northwest Territories are beautiful this time of year.


  10. - Oswego Willy - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:06 pm:

    I guess my internship for the Legislature will actually be busier than first thought


  11. - Oswego Willy - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:08 pm:

    Copying the emails from “ck” and then drive to all the towns she listed in them and have the elected officials of those towns sign them


  12. - chicon - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:09 pm:

    I will be watching the regular posters here get all crazed because the governor is actually trying to do what he said he’d do. This is a novel concept in these parts! Watching the beneficiaries of the status quo squirm when threatened is fun.


  13. - Kippax Blue - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:11 pm:

    Going to work every weekday only to find out I am still locked out.


  14. - Just Me - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:13 pm:

    Working a temp job for the State of Illinois.

    (actually, there is some truth in that.)


  15. - siriusly - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:13 pm:

    Reformin’ Legislatin’ Broadcastin’


  16. - Huh? - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:16 pm:

    Working for the state and trying not to get deleted on capfax.


  17. - Anonymous - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:18 pm:

    Save money. Maybe do a lot of walking (yeah, I’m a state employee).


  18. - Linus - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:18 pm:

    Doubling-down on failed political systems.


  19. - jazzy - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:20 pm:

    Livin for the weekends. ….wait with the way things are going everyday could be the weekend….gotta stock up while I got some change jigglin in my pocket.


  20. - Oswego Willy - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:20 pm:

    Write a treatment about a wealthy man running and winning the Governirship of a big state and how his staff is continually putting out or lighting fires.

    It’s a comedy.

    Watch it get turned down dozens of times as unrealistic…


  21. - RNUG - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:20 pm:

    -ow-

    Maybe I’ll pass you on the road. I’m going to be in the Chicago burb’s in a couple of weeks.


  22. - Popcorn - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:20 pm:

    Eating popcorn and sitting on the couch watching the Godfather Trilogy - I mean, the State of Illinois Trilogy… with “Turnaround” commercials.


  23. - RNUG - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:21 pm:

    == It’s a comedy. ==

    Wrong audience. Sell it as a reality show …


  24. - Oswego Willy - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:21 pm:

    Send mock emails as Trover or Brown to each other.

    Might be fun..,


  25. - Been There - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:22 pm:

    ===* Your summer plans?====
    Anyone with “plans” is delusional


  26. - Minnow - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:23 pm:

    Pull a chair up to the TV and breathlessly await the stunning ads from the governor. Because I just didn’t enough of them before the election. Not!


  27. - William Jennings Bryan - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:23 pm:

    Enjoying the memory of my father who died on April 24. He was a
    WWII vet and a 34 years CPD Officer. Miss him every day. Calm Winds and Following Seas Dad.


  28. - MrJM - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:24 pm:

    Free motorcycle lessons.

    – MrJM


  29. - Oswego Willy - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:25 pm:

    Selling as a reality show, I don’t think Lance or Z will let Rauner sign the waivers..,


  30. - jazzy - Sunday, May 31, 15 @ 2:25 pm:

    Starting up “Victim Anonymous.” Membership limited to those living in the Springfield cocoon.

    Free membership to those Democrats leading veto proof majorities who are claiming to be held hostage by a single man who had the audacity to challenge them. Double free membership to those claiming to be hostages!

    My plans?!? I’ve already got my popcorn. Waiting for the stuff to hit the fan.
