If you're not a full-time student, and you've got a thing for buildings, then maybe you'd like to get a job as a Chicago Architecture Foundation docent. Deadline for application is October 7, and you have to fulfill a few requirements first. But hey, you can always spend the next month working on some new jokes about bridges, boats, and the Dave Matthews Band.
