Pictures to Warm Even a Grinch's Heart

So this year, I'm not exactly been in the Christmas spirit. Feeling pretty Grinchy. I still plan to keep a few of my traditions: visiting my family, re-reading Dickens's Christmas stories, and eating enough for two people, but this year there doesn't feel like a whole lot of celebratin' to be had.

In fact, now that I have a cold, it's a fight just to keep my chin up. But tonight I saw something I've never seen in Chicago. It was corny as hell, but it made me smile, and I hope it makes you smile, too.

Of course, the Grinchy part of me couldn't help but wonder how much this cost, considering how bad off the CTA is financially right now.

It is very pretty though.

I'm sorry to hear about your cold. I hope it gets better quickly.

It was cool. People were smiling and taking pictures and strangers were even striking up conversations. I know that happens, but on the train I've never seen it.

This looks great. I'd like to ride around on this baby all afternoon — with my feet up on an embroidered pouffe and a glass of mulled wine in my hand.

Hah - I think I saw someone doing just that, Whirl!
