It Ain’t Necessarily So…

It Ain’t Necessarily So… Tuesday night was my “take your friends to the opera” night. Because everyone should go to the opera at least once. Porgy and Bess was presented at Lyric for the first time ever and I was excited to see it and figured it was one of those popular ones, being Gershwin and all, that a lot of people would want to see. So I got eight tickets and a bunch of us went.

We went to Townhouse Wine Bar for dinner. I pass by this place all the time and I also find it in web searches whenever I look for places to go for dinner around here. But it never really clicked that they were the same place. The bruschetta was excellent. The white fish was too. The 2 glasses of wine and vodka/strawberry/basil drink I had were also excellent although they made me kind of dizzy and kind of have to pee throughout the whole first act… Just sayin.

I have a love/hate relationship with MTV Books. Yes, MTV has a line of books and has for years and years. The love relationship started with Perks of Being a Wallflower (one of my all time favorite books), which was published under this line. But really most of the books are pretty crappily written but I always think they will be great. I don’t know why. I guess it’s for the same reasons I have a love/hate relationship with MTV reality shows.

I really didn’t like either finalist on America’s Next Top Model. I don’t think I watch anything on TV anymore. I guess 24 starts soon. I really only watch that for social reasons though.

I have a big box of shiny new accessories awaiting the arrival of my new camera. I hope I get it in time to shoot Josh’s wedding 🙁

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.
