making homemade chocolate pudding

Are you bemused?

1. Thursday I went for sushi with Josh and Nadia. We were supposed to go to this one really good place but they were packed and had a ridiculously long wait. So we ended up at another sushi place a few doors down. Now, I have a theory here…If you are in Lincoln Park and one sushi place is packed and another is completely empty there is probably a reason… (I probably also shouldn’t take restaurant advice from a boy whose favorite restaurant is Tasty Gyro…) We did have an excellent appetizer of teriyaki beef rolls. And I had yummy plum wine. But the waiter was a meany who would not bring me the plaid 3-legged pony I ordered (he said they were all out of the other types of ponies) and who sat on my imaginary friend. Mean mean waiter 🙁

2. I baked chocolate pudding. OK, OK, so you don’t really bake pudding. But it counts. I then ate my pudding all alone by myself watching a movie with a former Dawson having a lot of sex. It was an enjoyable movie. The pudding was too lumpy (I am too impatient some times).

3. A horoscope I enjoyed: CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): If you were to get very quiet and tune in to all that’s going on around you, you may realize that you’re the thought that turns someone’s lips into a bemused smile.

4. Yesterday I got a tour of the Civic for the first time. I kind of forgot that there was this whole other part of my company that I’ve never seen.

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.

    If you are in lincoln park and need sushi, go to the rice box, it’s at broadway and oakdale, about a block north of where i lived. it was cheap, clean, and never made me puke.
