Tell that to my wife...We have so much crap that we are worried about where it will all fit. I was out with some of the other gmatclub members and I think the consensus is we are already too occupied with things to even be able to schedule anything more than a day in advance. I am doubting the turnout of the Kellogg folks...seems everyone is wrapped up in life in Evanston already and will take a few months until people have settled into a routine.


What are you guys, 90 years old? You have no idea what busy is yet!!! .... busy is when you have two firm interviews at 8am on Monday, each back to back with two 45-minute slots each, followed by a corporate conversation at 11am to 12pm, and a midterm at 1 that ends at 4, followed by a dinner with a firm at 6.30 at some downtown restaurant, followed by another interview the next morning you need to prepare for.

Allow me to explain how to make it work:

"Honey, where do I put the rose petal aroma therapy candles?"
"Golly gee pumpkinbutt, how bout in the bathroom! I don't know we are soooo busy!"
"I know! Yesterday I had to program our TIVO!!!"
"No way!"
"Way!"
"I know, and today, I had to cut my morning yoga meditation to an hour!"
"Wow, thats just awful."
"I know. I know. I feel so stressed, the muscles in my pinky toe are totally tense."
"Hey didn't you have that awesome dinner planned next week?"
"Yea, but I don't think I'll go."
"Why not?"
"I dont know, im just so busy."
"You should go"
"You think so? Why?"
"Well, first of all, you'll meet a bunch of other people at Kellogg and Chicago, and you never know who can help you get that dream job of yours."
"Animal Handler at Barnum and Bailey?"
"No the other one."
"Investment Banker to the Gods?"
"Yea, that one."
"Ok, but if I go, I'm going to lose like 3 hours of my evening."
"I'll come with you. It'll be fun. We can meet other couples. It'll be a good chance for me to hear about what to expect in recruiting cycle so I dont end up divorcing you"
"You know what, your right! The feng shui waterfall can wait till Monday."
"Indeed it can."
"Lets do it."
"You are so awesome"
"So are you too. Lets make out"

Haha, maybe people would come if you offered up this one. Though I'd prefer trapeze artist myself.

I say if it takes you more than a half a day to unpack, then you didn't throw enough stuff away.

I'd offer to grace you guys with my presence ;), but I'm leaving for vacation in San Francisco on Sunday - yay!

Ok all, here are the details:

I made reservations for 6:30pm for 9 people (you know who you are)

Location: 3763 N. Southport Ave.
Chicago, IL 60613
773-477-5466

Time: 6:30pm (a little early but i figure with 9 people, someone is bound to be late)

Map: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&g ... 27637&z=15

Menu: http://www.menupages.com/partnermenu.as ... 34066af465

Nearest L stop: Southport

Restaurant Details: The restaurant is BYOB, so if you want to bring some wine, go for it. I'll bring a bottle. Prices are generally reasonable, although some dishes are a bit expensive, you should know that portions are absolutely huge by any standard, so sharing is recommended.

A menu is here: http://www.menupages.com/partnermenu.as ... 34066af465

Getting there: Car is going to work well, if you plan on drinking, the L is a great choice and should be easy from downtown. Those of you in Hyde Park, I may be able to come grab you in the car.

back to life after teaching a new employee, moving to US and catching up with life (cell phone, bank account, accounting class) here :) Talked to Darden and ncprasad today. If ncprasad will decide to go, we'll be in three, if not, hope to convince Darden to accept the cost of going to Chicago in two :) Though, kk returns from the trip this weekend and it's highly possible that he will join us too. So, shall have info about most of the people taking part by the tomorrow afternoon and full info on the weekend.

Sorry it is going to be a no-go for me...I know a lot of the Kellogg folks wont be able to make it either but maybe a few will be able to make it and represent for us. Maybe in a few months when things settle down more of us will be able to get together.

Everything has been amazing here so far, having tons of fun and meeting lots of great folks including most of the gmatclub folks. I think my wife is actually enjoying it more than I have been so far, except for the job hunt part that is. Hope GSB and Ross is treating you guys just as well.

I'm busy too, but I'm going. Little things such as buying olives take time for me, everything is new, and I JUST CAN'T BELIEVE HOW MANY OPTIONS THERE ARE ON SUPERMARKETS. Now back on right mood. Furniture, hasn't come also, they will on Wednesday (Hopefully), we're still sleeping at an Air Bed (or whatever the name is), but I'll make it. I can't stand anymore, getting into the same store for the 5th time and still my wife doesn't know if the bloody thing is the right thing (please nobody tells anything about that on Sunday). Oh and to make things worse, try to buy a cel phone with no Credit Score...

Come on River just make it happen :lol:

Looks like I wont be able to make it on Sunday. Darden and RED should be there, so the Ross gang will at least be represented. Have fun everyone!

Oh, and can I just say that accounting is a piece of #@!^
