newyorksubalien has evolved. New city, new life, new blog.

Yes, I’m still socially-insecure and still deemed too primitive a life form for a bank account. I still can’t say ‘water’ correctly and voice-recognition software still doesn’t understand my number 8.

Meanwhile Superalien is still as super (at least in my eyes), Male Mini-Me is taller than all of us and Mini-Mum has returned to the home of the Mini, only popping back from London to sleep, be fed and help balance out testosterone levels.

But in my new home of Chicago, I can at least lay claim to my own subgroup. I’m now Chi-rish as in Chicago Irish. Apparently the hyphen is important so as not to be confused with Chinese Irish or the town in Armenia. But I’m trusting my readers not to be churlish and to forgive these, my (hyphen-less) Chirish chatters…..

Going native

I have a new home. And I don't even need to pack this time.

It was the "pants" thing that did it. I realised I was starting to go native. Or rather I was starting to feel local.

So I've gone local, joining the esteemed family of Chicagoan bloggers that make up ChicagoNow. Although I won't be able to say the name properly. ChicagoNigh? ChicagoNao?

Anyway, come visit....
