My Failures of 2006

I’ve done plenty of things in 2006 that I’m proud of, but here are a few things I meant to do this year and didn’t:

– See Ken Vandermark perform. The man’s a freakin’ MacArthur Grant recipient, he plays in Chicago all the time, and the shows are pretty cheap. No excuse.

– Visit the Green Mill. It’s up in my neighborhood and I used to see shows or the Poetry Slam all the time. Erica loves the place and has friends in bands that play there regularly. And in the two-and-a-half years we’ve been together, we’ve never been there together.

– See a high school football and/or basketball game. It just sounds like such fun. One barrier to our getting to a game is that we don’t actually know any high schoolers and I never could seem to find a centralized resource for finding out when games would be where.

– Get to a single night of Summer Dance Chicago. Forty-four nights of free dance lessons and performances, plus weekly appearances by world class DJs. Erica’s a dancer. Were we really that busy? I’m going to put it on my calendar for June 2007 right now.
