Good morning, everyone, it's 11:29am. I had some errands to run this morning, but I am back now. It's beautiful out. Nice breeze, decent temps. Anyway, tonight is the CAPS meeting for Beat 2523. It is at Copernicus Center, 3160 N. Milwaukee, at 7pm tonight. I ask those of you who don't want to attend, or aren't busy, to attend. Please. I won't be there (I need a break), but I still ask that you attend. Also, there's going to be a bit of a schedule change I want to let you guys know about on this blog, for the next two days. Today will be pretty normal, as I'll be here all day (except for dinner and if an unexpected nap happens) until 10pm. I'm going to bed at 10 because I have to be up at 5am tomorrow morning. I have to run an errand at 6am, then I'll be cleaning up my block for a half hour or so. I'll blog from about 6:30 or 6:45am until about noon, when I'll take a nap for about 90 or so minutes. Then, I'll be here until around 5:15. I'll be eating dinner at that time, then I'm going to a meeting until 7pm. After that, I'll probably be taking notes on it for about two hours, then I'll finally be back. With that, here's crime for today.
