We are Siamese if you please.

I never really got that line…

Anyway! Just wanted to remind everyone about the dinner at UNO’s on Sunday in Kenmore at 6:30! Hopefully we’ll see you all there!

Smelly cat, Smelly cat, It’s not your fault

Hello lovely ASBers. Matt and I are tirelessly working on Pre-break at this very moment. We are pumped to meet you all in 45 MINUTES! We have some awesome things planned- including candy- so be there, or be square.

In reference to this blog’s title, we have recently found out that showers are an issue. The YMCA we were planning to use is facilitating another spring break trip and doesn’t have room for us. But, NEVER FEAR! ALANA AND MATT ARE HERE! We have called every gym, Y, hostel, and JCC in the Chicago area and we will find you showers!

Matt’s getting dangerous with the scissors, so I better go. See you all so soon.

Hey Volunteers!

We’re so excited to have finally found out who will be going on our trip we us! We’ve creeped on you and all of you look awesome!

We’ve also gotten to meet our chaperone, Meg White, and she is pretty awesome too. She works with housing on upper Comm Ave and is really excited to work with us. She even has experience running around Chicago! YAY!

Also, PREBREEEEAK is on Wednesday February 24 from 5-7 in Metcalf Hall. We really want all of you to attend, if you don’t we’ll be super sad. 😦 So be there or be square. We may or may not be dressed as animals. We swear we’re not crazy. Can’t wait to meet you!!

For your paws only…

Hey everyone!

We have updates! So we’ve been talking with Sharyn, our PAWS site contact, and we’re scheduled to have a conference call with her this week to check in before the break. We’ve also emailed our housing contact and we’re hoping to finalize our stay with them this week. Yay for not sleeping on benches!

If you haven’t gotten to check out the Chicago PAWS Website, do so!! It’s got a ton of great information and some inspirational stories. They’re a wonderful organization! Check out this video about their shelter.

Random Chicago Facts!
