Liveblogging my trip to NSC with Max Schindler

Post by Perturbed Secretary Bird » Fri Jun 05, 2015 5:19 am

In an attempt to uphold a fine Chicago tradition, I will be chronicling my NSC journey with Max. I would like to acknowledge Ben Zhang, without whose scheduling prowess this would not be possible.

Max also has some choice words for Ben Zhang. Quote: "They rhyme with 'meet a hick.'" Fuck Ben Zhang.

On bus to O'Hare now. Quick recap to follow.
3:40 I text Max to tell him our flight is on time. His response: "What sort of just God would make one of His creations get up at this time."

3:55: Max promises I will gaze into the face of despair sometime en route to the airport.
Max is also very, very grumpy and has adopted a thick Yiddish accent. Many "oys."

3:58: Max threatens to leave me after I note that I may not have my bus fare card. Fortunately, I owe him money and say I'll only give it to him after we get through security.
As I write this post, Max Schindler regales me with the story about how he lent Matt Jackson a dollar for pizza at VCU Open and then did not demand interest when he collected at OPPEN.

On the bus, I eat my bagel and Max eats his pop tarts. Max: "See, this is an interesting role reversal since I'm Jewish and you're white trash."

We're now waiting at the Blue Line.
4:32 Max was very happy to get off at the (Matt) Jackson Street stop.

I try to discuss Mo Yan with Max. I tell him I really liked Red Sorghum but that Big Breasts and Wide Hips dragged on a bit. Max: "That's unsurprising. They seem like the sort of things that would slow you down."

I'd ordinarily agree, because I hate it so much, but there's an Arby's at almost every exit, and I'm frequently thinking Arby's.

While Indiana is certainly terrible, don't diss this stretch of highway - it was redeemed for me last year when I was told by...someone from Michigan? Maybe Lafer? about this excellent establishment which I have since used to interrupt the otherwise interminable drive.
