Brevity... is needed if I'm going to make this ChrisNotes thing work.

Awards. I've gotten some more awards. I think I'm going to try to create an awards page to put them all in. I'm not ignoring all the awards you awesome people have given me,  just finding a good place for them. So yea, expect that soon (or in a couple months).

CSN Giveaway. Nobody really seemed too excited about the CSN giveaway thing so I think I'm going to pass for now.

The Superbowl. Most of Chicago is still crushed from losing to the team that shall remain nameless a couple weeks ago. Easily the least I've ever been excited about the big game. None of my friends are even throwing a big party for it. That being said, GO STEELERS!!!!

Go Look at these Blogs!

KatyDid at Lesbians in My Soup. Katy is incredibly insightful, witty and hilarious. If you haven't checked out her always entertaining blog you really should.

K. Syrah at Shoes Never Worn. Easily one of the more interesting blogs I've come across recently. Her posts are thought-provoking, intelligent and always leave me satisfied.

Random Tweet of the Week from @ntsfrmundergrnd 

If only I knew then what I know now. Which was that I'd need two bottles of vodka.

Comment of the Week: 
i think i need to get a full body condom now...
This little gem was from Paige over at Awkward Sex and the City and was posted on Amphiboly. Strangely enough that was exactly the reaction I was looking for from that piece.

Netflix Stream Movie of the Week: His Girl Friday.
The dialogue in this classic newspaper comedy is some of the best I've ever seen. The quick and witty delivery from Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell is really second to none. Click here for my full review. 

Coming Soon to NoFU:
Yes, I'm aware these are the same exact blogs I said I'd post last week, it happens.
  •  My take on everyone clamoring to put the dollar back on the gold standard.
  • Another bible blog. This one on Ecclesiastes.
  • A review of Charles Dickens' Great Expectations.


  1. My daily reading just got a whole lot more exciting,

  2. Apfel: I'm glad!

    Penny: I'm sure you'll enjoy both of them.

  3. What the hell's a super bowl???

  4. Congrats on the awards. Presumably, you didn’t show up to the award ceremonies drunk and make a fool out of yourself.

    And thanks for the shout-out, although bad timing: it came mere minutes after I posted what might be the corniest thing I’ve ever written.

    Oh well. Superbowl is on. No one’s online today anyway…

  5. Mmhmm, looking forward to your long-awaited updates for the second time. ;)

    And oh gosh, that is a precious condom - erm I mean comment. Look what you've done, you've got me thinking like you too now! Yeah, you know exactly what I'm thinking when I read noFU. ;p

  6. Oh! Thank you so much for the shout out and congrats on the award!

  7. Hey! Congrats on your awards! Wah. No Super Bowl for me. I don't even think they showed it France! Missed all the commercials!

  8. Ryan: It's the championship for a little game we call football, I'm assuming you guys would call it soccer since we call your football that. It got its name from the giant bowls of mexican dip that people eat from while watching it. Well, maybe not but that's my theory.

    KatyDid: Is there really any other way to accept an award? I'm a bit behind on my blog reading, but I look forward to checking out your cheesy side.

    Philosophia: Ha, be careful. Once you start thinking like me there is no going back. It's a scary place.

    K. Syrah: No problem and thanks!

    Samantha: There were a few pretty good commercials. I think you can watch them all on Fox's website, if you can bring yourself to going to Fox's website. It's not really the same though.
