1. Last night I met up with Chelsa and Tammy to go see some improv at iO. It was awesometacular. Tammy's boyfriend was in the first group and they were hilarious. There was then another group who were really funny and a third guy who did a one-man show where he improvised an entire musical! It was pretty amazing. Afterwards we got Ian's pizza. I was kind of boring and just got a veggie slice but it is hard to pass up a colorful slice of mushrooms and spinach. Next time I will try something weirder. 2. Tomorrow I am driving...

Sunday, May 24 Spent all morning making my bedroom purdy. The living room is still my closet. In the afternoon Chelsa came over and we headed to Eric's place for a BBQ. We had cheese-filled hot dogs bought with food stamps. We watched people play beer die and I still have no idea what the rules are. And flippy cup but I am pretty sure the rules of that were much simpler. Afterwards we headed to Hydrate for a benefit for Ron's theatre company. It was a cabaret. Me and Chelsa stole a lot of popcorn. The bartender was hot but I had...

Thursday, May 21 Packing, packing, and more packing. Friday, May 22 Moved a load of stuff into the new place with Heather. Listened to everyone's advice and painted my room blue instead of tan (no I did not paint it pink). Saturday, May 23 Moved (almost) everything else over. By myself. My arms hurt. This included lugging a pretty heavy bookcase and nightstand up to the third floor. By myself. I am sore. Re-painted the room tan because I hated the blue (no, I did not paint it pink). ...

Dear world, I am not dead. You do not have to send text messages asking why my blog is broken (although I do appreciate getting text messages). I have just been very busy and do not have internet at home in which to blog from. I will update soon. Love, Val ...

1. I always find it funny when I meet someone new and they say "I know who you are they talk about you all the time." I'm not that interesting!   2. I took the days off and said yes. My summer vacation will now consist of flying to Seattle, driving to Hyder, Alaska. Driving back to Seattle. Spending a few days there with Scotty. Flying to NYC for a few days and to see the hot dog eating contest.   3. So my new lens should be delivered today. I was going to buy it from the camera store I always go to...

I felt sick yesterday and woke up feeling sicker this morning. I realized I didn't have my boss's number and for some reason it wasn't in the directory so I called a few random numbers and then gave up and set my alarm to wake back up at 9. Then I called, left a message, and fell back asleep until 11:30. I stayed in my pajamas in my bed and watched 4 episodes of Cash Cab (I am determined to see the Crazy Legs/Eater X episode! Alas it was not played but I did see the same question asked in...

one. Seriously, can I make it to a 1pm ice cream eating contest in Metropolis and make it back in time for Meredith's birthday party in Oak Brook at 7pm? I am considering this as an option. I have done stupider things...
