I have been craving bacon, but i guess no more than usual.

Meredith changed her birthday plans to Friday…so I made plans with Brian to leave way too early in the morning on Saturday and drive to Metropolis to watch the Dippin Dots eating contest 🙂 It’s my first “road trip” of the year! Superman Museum here I come!



Rumors are flying: Verizon and Apple may be in talks about an iPhone. I am way too excited about that because I want an iPhone but do not want to leave Verizon for AT&T.

Oh, but Microsoft might release a phone codenamed “Pink.” I think I need to get one on principle.


I think I have swine flu. I have all the symptoms.


I told my financial panther that I wanted to take all of my money out of pork and invest it in face masks. He didn’t get it.


If it is true that Canon rebates will be announced next week consider my tax refund spent.


I probably shouldn’t take life advice from random people on Twitter, but one of my fav wedding photographers posted this the other day: “How phenomenal would every business/personal interaction be if we were all doing what we love for a living?” I agree.


I have decided that I need my life to be some sort of combination of Mammoth Men and Mammoth Men. I should probably find a female role model so lets throw in some of her talent too.


I have been very good and posted at least once (sometimes 2 or 3 times) in Silly America this month. I now just have to design the site. Motivation Val. Motivation. The good news is that the more I blog in it the more I want to blog in it. The bad news is that I don’t have that much content in reserves to last me more than half a year at that pace…although some would argue that that is a lot of content 🙂


I want to take guitar lessons.


Matt went home on Idol. Boohoo. Adam was in the bottom three and I laughed and laughed and laughed. I think Eric has officially won my $5.

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.

    I should post up the pic James took of me in front of the Superman. He fucking cut off Superman’s head.
