I got this fortune in a fortune cookie in the union of U of I last time i was down there. I didn't think I still had it until it fell out of my coat pocket and MattH picked it up at BW3s. Night People: Anybody who goes to bed the same day they got up is a quitter. I concur. My tummy is full, too much teriaki chicken wings. I bought the dvd of Rent. Yay. I started and finished reading Chuck Palahniuk's Survivor the other day in less than 24 hours. Very good book. It starts on page 289 and...

Dying My Hair Black I was watching Snow White the other day (the Faerie Tale Theatre version — do you remember those?) and decided I really wanted to look like Snow White. I mean, who doesn't want to look like Snow White? Lips red as blood. Skin as white as snow. Hair as black as ebony. Etcetera. Etcetera. So, I tried dying my hair black. Again. This time with permanent hair dye. This time it worked a lot better. It's like black black. I went into work today with my newly-dyed black hair and my boss saw it and said, "I love your...

I suppose it's time for a recap of my wonderful, thrilling life! I know you were waiting on the edge of your seat in anticipation. And I'd hate to disappoint. So here is a random list of everythingedness: 1. After watching the trailer for Brokeback to the Future (see earlier post), I decided that I really wanted to see Back to the Future (I also want to see Brokeback Mountain still too). I had actually never seen B2TF before. I'd seen bits and pieces here and there, but never the full together movie. So, I told...

So on the radio this morning Eric & Kathy were talking about how Kirsten Dunst was apparently mistaken for a hooker and approached outside of a hotel by an old man who wanted to lick whipped cream off of her. They then asked people to call in if they had ever been mistaken for a hooker or a stripper. They then threw in "Eh, we'll take it if you've ever been mistaken for Kirsten Dunst." I so was going to call in, because, while I've never been mistaken for a stripper, I have been mistaken for Kirsten Dunst. I...

So I've always wanted jet black hair. So, being Val's best year ever, I figured now was the best time to try it out. I just bought one of those dyes that's only supposed to last 10 days, and it didn't turn out as dark as I'd hoped. Perhaps later I will try a permanent one. Anyways, this is moi with black hair: What do you think?...

In continuing with my strive to towards having the best year ever, I just had quite possibly my best birthday ever (even surpassing the infamous 21st birthday party where I got everyone so wasted they were throwing up all over the place). For my 25th birthday, we went to Parallel 42, a wine bar in Riverside that I heard of through a girl in my magazine writing class who wrote an article on local wine bars. I seriously had the three of the best wines I've ever had in my life: prosecco, an ice wine ($15 a glass, but worth...

So, 10 minutes left of my 25th birthday! Too bad I am sick :( I left early from work Monday and stayed home Tuesday because of a sore throat, fever, and general ickyness. I feel better than I did, but my nose is all stuffed and I'm coughing like crazy. I went to lunch with Matt and Matt at Panera for soup to celebrate and after dinner I went out with MattyK to a restaurant where he had a hamburger and I had a piece of chocolate cake. yumyum. He insisted that the waitress would think i was...
