Choi's

So yesterday we decided to get take out from our favorite Chinese restaurant in our neighborhood. For any of you who live in the Logan Square area, I'm talking about Choi's which is right on Milwaukee & Kedzie. It is the BOMB! I've never had such good chinese food in my life. It was a total run down dive, and I don't think I'd actually eat there in person, but in the comfort of my own home...gurl...ain't no stopping me. Recently we noticed it was closed for renovation. I figured, the old Chinese couple was fixing it up a bit. Well last night we found out it is under new management. Now they have fancy take out dishes and the food does not taste anywhere as good as it used to. So this leads me to our apartment quest (which is still on). We've been toying w/ the idea of looking in other areas besides Logan Square. Quite frankly the rent is going up really high in this area and I've seen a total of 7 places and nothing that really excites me. I'm beginning to get frustrated.

So I take Choi's going to the shitter as a sign we should look elsewhere. We're thinking Lincoln Square. It's a nice area. I think this Saturday I'm gonna walk around and look for any for rent signs. Hopefully we can find something soon that suits our needs (both financially and location-wise).

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love my late 80s/early 90s music. Today's video I'm sharing w/ you is from the best female rapper to ever come out of the UK...Betty Boo!!!!



Ms. Boo is currently 1/2 of the UK duo WIGWAM. Check out their site here.

Oh no! Where's Lincoln Square? That sounds far Sista M? What about Wicker Park or Ukraine village? I know those artsy farsty college kids smell, but you would get used to it.

love that Betty Boo song/video. I always remember when it was featured on 90210.
