#99- A day off, of sorts

On Friday, we had a staff appreciation day at Navy Pier. It was fun to get out of the office despite the fact that it was 40 degrees. I spent my $5 allowance and:

I rode the Ferris Wheel at Navy Pier.

Actual live action shots coming soon-they are on a co-worker’s camera. Trust me, you’ll want to check back for those. I’m not sure I’ve ever actually ridden a Ferris Wheel at all, but certainly have not ridden this one. It’s got a spectacular view of the city from great angles and it was pretty fun. It’s $6 and the ride takes 7 minutes to complete. While you ride, the speaker system gives trivia about its infrastructure and other nuggets of information about the Pier.

It also got me thinking how much trust one places in Carnies when one does shit like this.

Fun factor: 7

    Isn’t this how they came up with “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off?”
