Gosh, spring has been pretty slow to emerge this year, huh? Well, there's no better cure for the 'winter blahs' than gazing out at a Caribbean seascape — even if it is just a mural. Two rooms (one of which looks like a Corona ad) are up for rent in an apartment near Chicago and Western in the Ukie Village for the very reasonable price of $550 per month. From the Craigslist ad:
"You will have TWO adjoining bedrooms to use as you please. One of them is pictured - a folksy airbrushed ocean view and beach. It is equipped with a ceiling mounted full spectrum bank of lights. It really is a very very effective room for the winter blahs!! Good for guys or gals - an electronic engineer friend of mine stayed here and love this Caribbean room feel for his WIFI and soldering projects!"More about the place, please. "It has an uplifted, light feeling- I am of the artistic variety, so it is cleverly put together with a small budget, and has an elegance and sense of humor as well as a slight bohemian edge."We'll take it!
