Ok, I’ve been holding out. I’m going to tell you a 100 percent true story.

When I was living in Houston several years ago, I was in a band with a fabulous guy named Sunjay. Sunjay’s grandmother loved to shop. She especially loved to shop at the State Street Marshall Fields and would make frequent trips to Chicago just to spend some time and cash at the store.

When she died, the family decided that they should spread her ashes in her favorite place in the world.

The State Street Marshall Field’s.

Yup. Grandma is sprinkled all over the store in various planters and such, mainly in The Walnut Room.

It’s all true. Swear on the super cute new Kenzie Mary Janes I got today at Macy’s.

    Does anyone know of a secret event to be held in Chicago next Saturday the 16th? Every one involved is sworn to secrecy and have signed non-disclosure docs.

    I have toured the secret location because a friend is working on the site as security, but he has no idea what is going to happen next Saturday. This is a vert secretive party and its huge. I cannot tell the location, but I will say it is a stones throw from Lake Michigan and it is south of Hyde Park.

    Did anyone else buy the expensive collectible Marshall Field’s clock with instructions for inserting a new 1.5 volt AA battery? The clock cannot be opened. There is no place to insert a battery.

    I bought the collectable Marshall Field’s clock. I went back to the store and a helpful clerk showed me how to pry open the rim around the clock face with a butter knife. The knife goes under the outside edge of the rim.The mechanism, including the spot for the battery lifts out.
