Choosing Figs | Neurotic as Hell | A Travel, Lifestyle, and Life List Blog

I can see that at the Burger King.

1. I will give a cookie to anyone who can guess how many versions of My Funny Valentine I have playing on repeat on my iTunes right now.

2. Kobayashi backed out of the Krystal Square Off. We are now driving 20 hours in less than 48 hours in order to see a bunch of white guys eat burgers. It also means I can’t cross off “see Kobayashi” from my list. 🙁

3. I had lunch with Walter. He now knows who I am. He also thinks I am nuts because of my stand on shredded lettuce.

4. I don’t know which I find crazier: John calling me a stripper or JoeJoe calling me Valerie. All I know is that if I’m going to be a stripper my flight, hotel room, and a $60 Kobe and foie gras burger better be comped 🙂

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.

    Nuts in a good way. I have that irrational fear of water chestnuts so I can’t judge too hard.
    Also, you go to Burger Bar every time you go to Las Vegas too?

    Ah I thought that was what you were talking about. I think their Kobe burger is like $60. I didn’t think that was a universal price or anything 🙂
    Burger Bar is ridiculously good but it’s also ridiculously simple. You get a burger, on a plate. That’s it. No decoration or anything. Also, there’s not much of a restaurant atmosphere. The one I was at (are there more than one?) is in this mall area between Luxor and Mandalay Bay. You feel like you’re at Sbarro’s, but with ridiculously good burgers instead of pizza.
