Daily Special at Martini Park in Chicago.

I don’t want your sausages creepy train dude.

15 minutes into Season 5 of 24 and already way too many of the good characters are dead. 🙁 And I’m already crying over one of the characters who I know is going to die later in the season :'(

When I run out of clothes to wear I should stop buying new ones and just do laundry instead.

I wonder how many nose studs are lodged in my brain.

Plan for next weekend: Go to Opera Ball in Chicago on Saturday. My dad is going to pick me up at midnight downtown. Then we’re driving to Chattanooga (9.5 hour drive) to go see Kobayashi eat a bunch of hamburgers Sunday afternoon. Then we turn right around and drive back (9.5 hour drive). Then I go to court Monday morning for jury duty.

You know a camera is good quality when the instructions include “use electrical tape to hold the batteries in place”

Friday I got back to work around 5:30. Luckily my coworkers were still there drinking. My boss kept filling my glass with whiskey. I felt pretty drunk by 7:30 when I left and went home and fell asleep at 9:30.

Saturday I met up with Alina and Joe and Heather and Kelly to grab some Gino’s East. Note to self: the slab sausage pizza is way too much sausage. The spinach pizza was tasty though. So were the spinach sticks which were kind of like cheese sticks but with spinach instead of cheese. Then we went to Martini Park to see Daily Special perform. JoeJoe knows some of them from college. They were pretty awesome because they play a lot of 80s covers. Despite looking classy the bar was pretty skeezy because there were old men grinding up on young women. My peach bellini was tasty though.

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.

    9.5 hours is worth the drive to see Kobayashi will win back the title!
