Hi, my name is Kim and I spent the entire weekend moving from one apartment into another, so I had a pretty lame weekend. I did however wear red, white, and blue, drink beer, ate lots of food, and bought American made products, so I’ll give myself a solid 7 on this one.

I practically peed red, white, and blue. I should probably talk to my doctor about that…

Well I ate a ton of food, drank a lot of beer, got drunk said ‘Murica countless times so I would say I was at an 8. I would have made a perfect 10 if I partook in some fireworks action . Just like the Simpsons said “Celebrate the independence of your nation by blowing up a small part of it”

 
 

Which is the worse of all when it comes to the “L” lines?

Hmm. This is a tough question. They all have their periods of suck. I’d have to say either the Red Line because it’s always crowded and the most smelly, or whichever line that guy is on who walks from car to car saying he needs money for a prescription to treat his leg infection/blood clot. You know, the guy who says the SAME thing every time, about how sorry he is for pissing people off, and how he offers to show off his diseased leg. No, guy. No one wants to see your stanky leg and we’ve all heard this speech before. Go. Away.

I personally don’t care for the Red Line. There’s something about being trapped underground in a miasma of pee smells, heat, and other people’s sweat that makes me want to take Divvy bikes seriously for a moment.

I would have to say it’s more the people riding it and when there is a group of people who make a wall right by the doors. Move aside, so people can get in and out!

 
 
 
 

So who plans on rocking some overalls sometime soon. They’re back in you know!

NO NO NO NO. I have 26 supporters on Facebook who have decided to band together with me to boycott the return of overalls. Overalls ONLY look good on toddlers and Justin Timberlake (Come on. He looks good in everything) See photo below.

If by “in” you mean “in a Goodwill box” where they belong, then yes, they are. I am not Old MacDonald, the Illinois corn is not in Chicago, there is no reason anyone in Cook County should be wearing overalls.

I have been rocking overalls all my life.. Are you telling me they were NOT IN the this whole time?!? This explains so much of my social and relationship life.

 
 
 

The JAT team loves boating so we were wondering if you had a boat what would you name it?

Speaking of Justin Timberlake, I would name my boat Justin Timberlake so I can text all my friends and say, “Hey Guys! Let’s go for a ride on Justin Timberlake!”
