Here's how you gained admission to the jelly bean hunt at my house this week: draw an Easter drawing with sidewalk chalk. An impromptu collaboration produced the "Easter Emu."

Yesterday, I saw a little girl jumping and cheering at the sight of Hannah Montana in the Mich. Ave. Disney Store window. Her older brother's sympathetic comment was, "I'ma kill you if I hear anymore about Hanna Montana." Her mother seemed interested though. Today another nice mom, Raleigh, from Denver, posted this little girl's review of the movie, "Mom that was the BEST movie ever!"

Lauren, who works at the Chicago Field Museum said all tickets were sold out yesterday for the new exhibit on, what else? Pirates--the trend continues. She had taken her 12-year-old brother.

This blog talks about Pirates so much, I should have an eye-patch.

See entry from Oct. 15,'06 "Yo-ho-ho and a stick of gum," or Jan 15,'07 "Pirate in the Phils," that page also sports a Disney pirate ship promo spotted in Istanbul (far from the Caribbean).
