Chicago Visit

Well, I am having an excellent time in Chicago. Took care of the business I came to take care off, and then just seem to have spent the whole day eating. I went to Las Tablas for lunch, then to pick up my best friend and then out for ice cream. Spent most of the afternoon just catching up on his visit to the motherland. When he got hungry we went out to my favorite restaurant Yu’s for chinesse… so more food.

We wanted to go to the show, but I robot which was the only movie that we wanted to watch did not start until real late… so just hanged out at the parking lot of the theater and chatted some more. Then he got tired (party pooper) LOL just kidding, and I ended up waiting for another good friend Bill, that was going to let me use his second bike… he had taken his kids out to the drive in… but as soon as he was done I got a text message. From then on it was riding until 4:00 AM :) Got to catch up with some other buddies downtown and just did a lot of riding. So it is going to be a hard day to top… but today is looking awesome too. Gonna go visit Sho at her new condo (I wanted to help paint, but kind of overslept) and then to catch up with my best friend again. Check out the moblog for pics 😉

For all my female readers (How to detect a 2 way mirror)

Actually for everyone… (found at AnnaBanana’s page)

how to detect a 2-way mirror??

when we visit toilets, bathrooms, hotel rooms, changing rooms, how many of you know for sure that the seemingly ordinary mirror hanging on the wall is a real mirror, or actually a 2-way mirror (i.e. ppl can see you from the other side, but you can’t see them)

there have been many cases of ppl installing 2-way mirrors in female changing rooms. it is very difficult to positivily identify the surface by just looking at it.

so, how do we determine with any amount of certainty what type of mirror we are looking at?? just conduct this simply test.

place the tip of your fingernail against the reflective surface and if there is a “gap” between your fingernail and the image of the nail, then it is a GENUINE MIRROR. however, if your fingernail “directly touches” the image of your nail, then beware, for it is a 2-WAY MIRROR!

the reason there is a “gap” on a real mirror, is because the silver is on the back of the mirror UNDER the glass. as a two-way mirror, the silver is on the surface.

so remember, every time you see a mirror, do the “fingernail test”. it doesn’t cost you anything. it is simple to do, and it might save you from getting “visually raped”!!
