It just dawned on me that I'll be on in the US next week... I am incredibly unprepared, not even a thought has gone into packing and the tickets haven't even been printed off yet. The trip has been booked for months and months but seems to have crept up on me and pounced from behind.
Thankfully our friends who we'll be staying with are a little bit magnificent and have made us a great plan for the three weeks we'll be over there, including staying in a cabin in the woods (a la Evil Dead), going to see a baseball game and plenty of sightseeing, basically all the places that teenagers get killed in Slasher films, win.
We'll be enjoying Arcade Fire, Lady Gaga, DEVO and like a million other awesome bands at Lollapalooza (aka the reason for us going) and staying with friends for another couple of weeks after that, I'm rather excited but very, VERY unprepared. If anyone is in the Chicago/Wisconsin area in August and has sightseeing tips, they would be very much appreciated!
