A couple of photos I took around the office with my new camera:

I bought the most adorable dress off of ebay (it was a new sample sale dress) to wear to Rob and Christine’s wedding. I was really worried about the quality because from the picture it looked like it could go either way. But it is the most Val dress ever (seriously, everyone I showed a picture said “that’s such a Val dress”). I got it today though and it is even prettier in person…but it is way too short, and i don’t want to be showing my ass all night. 🙁

At least I can wear it out with pants or something.

I went to lunch with Walter today. I get to be an interesting thing! Unless, of course, he forgets about me. We went to a sandwich place and I had to explain to him my disdain for lettuce. He didn’t remember that we had had that exact same conversation last time we got lunch. But it was over a year ago, so I guess he can be forgiven. He was impressed with me getting diet Pepsi…until I only filled it halfway and filled the rest up with regular. Sometimes you just have to compromise.

I went to dinner with Nadia. We got Stir Crazy. It’s always fun catching up with Nadia. She has resolved to plan New Years by April 1. We have some plans. Then we went to Borders. I wanted to pick up a copy of “Rock Your Stars: Your Astrological Guide to Getting it All.” It was written by Holiday Mathis. I read her horoscopes daily (both Capricorn and Aquarius) and she is pretty spot on. I totally am going to rock my stars. Since I can’t go to a store without making an impulse purchase I also bought a sweet lunchbox. Because who doesn’t want to carry around their lunch in a sweet lunchbox?

Have you seen the trailer for “The Unborn”? It pisses me off. If this kid died in the womb he should not be terrorizing her as a toddler. He should either be her age or a fetus.

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.

    That’s what you get when you don’t eat lunch with me for a year. I forget things!
