2. Sunday night I went to see Mat improv again with Chelsa. I saw the entire program this time and for the most part it was really good. I think the best line of the night was when Mat was up and playing a mime and someone pointed out that “there is a poster on the wall that says nothing.” Maybe you had to be there. The worst was when someone did a that’s what she said joke which was kind of low comedy and also not even a good use of it.

3. Last night Mat stopped by between class and bowline and we went to a bar for a bit. Then he explained to me everything I missed in the improv show.

4. Last Wednesday I took JeffH to see Damnation of Faust. It was a crazy awesome opera and you should have seen it. Basically it looked like an 80s music video. And there were pole dancers. And a guy who kind of looked like he stepped out of Rocky Horror.

5. I’ve been feeling nauseous lately. I think that either means I’ve immaculately conceived a child or that I need to start wearing glasses.

6. Seriously, how did I not know that there was a sequel to Center Stage until now?

7. Last week Idol didn’t record the results show. I am starting to hate Comcast. Also, UPS who wouldn’t deliver a package even though I was home and they didn’t ring the doorbell.

8. Breaking News: My mutual funds are now only down $650 from where I started!

9. Dear Chase, “Direct Access to a Live Advisor” is not a perk. I would much prefer dealing with an automated message each time I call. I hate talking to representatives.

10. I can guarantee that I am one of the best two finger typers you know. Although technically I use three fingers, a pinkie, and a thumb…

11. Before AjaxAntigone the other week Chelsa and I went to Caesar’s. Although the entire purpose of the trip was null for me when I discovered I had lost my ID and, therefore, could not get a margarita 🙁 Luckily I found my ID on my dresser later). I did, however, get mole enchiladas.

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.
