Drury Lane duck

I have a heart like the sea.

I guess this is a spoiler if you don’t watch The Office. But I don’t watch The Office and I already knew what happened so it probably doesn’t matter. And also I think I am the only one who doesn’t watch The Office anyways…

So I’ve maybe seen two episodes of The Office. I know I know it’s a good show but in general I just don’t watch much primetime tv because it becomes too hard to keep up. So anyways, I made the mistake of tuning into one episode the other night and it was the one where Jim tells Pam he loves her. And then I proceeded to cry for the entire night.

I think I am going to start a segment here on my blog called “things that make val cry but no one else.” The above story does not count as I am sure many others cried. Today we will discuss the song “Teenage Dirtbag.” Val cries at the song “Teenage Dirtbag” because she thinks the story in the song is sweet.

I don’t know why I bothered putting RSVP info on the invites to my sister’s baby shower as I gave up on keeping track of who RSVPd.

I went to Drury Lane with my family today to see Miss Saigon. You know you are in trouble when on your way there your dad (who bought the tickets because he says he always wanted to see it) says “You know what I found out yesterday? This is a musical.” Yeah. he didn’t know. And he pretty much hated it. I thought it was not great, but I like some of the music a lot.

We had a package where we got lunch there and then the show. Here is what I ate…

Duck is made from duck
Quote from my sister Jen (a vegetarian) on raising her child: I’m just going to show the kid a plate of food and a picture of the animal it came from and let him make his own decisions.”
I ate the duck.

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.
