    this will either be the biggest month ever for LAist 

    or the second biggest month. thats a nice done-deal going into the last week of the month.

    i write you at 2:19am on wednesday morning. im watching the end of the first quarter of the bears saints game. i may watch this game every day for the next week and a half.

    i seriously cant believe the bears have such a great shot at winning the superbowl. im scared that theyre playing indy but im glad theyre playing indy cuz indys good and peyton has a good reason to try to win and if the bears win they will have beaten NO who were America’s Team and they would have beaten indy who probably has the best qb in football.

    if only we could fuck up the field in miami as much as it was fucked up at soldier field.
