Spent the afternoon downtown in the Loop for W's interview *me waiting for an hour at Caribou Coffee, peoplewatching and sipping enormous amounts of caramel frappucchino*. Afterwards we went to Hannah's Bretzel for some pretzelbread sandwiches, funky lemonade and German chocolate (they have a wall of chocolate from all over the world!!). Good food, and healthy as well (most of the sandwich stuff is organic, I guess).

We had our lunch at Millennium Park with a nice view of Cloud Gate (also called "The Bean") and lotsa tourists. A guy was walking around, juggling, on huge stilts and in a funny costume, but he seemed a little depressed because all the tourists wanted to do was gawk at their reflection in the large shiny object. I tried to send him some positive thoughts.
