Modern Bromance

Modern Bromance.

Anyone sensing next year’s theme???

Ok, ok, so it was an article about best man friends who secretly want each other or something…but I like it 🙂


Dear Amish people,

Why are you listening to iPods?




Don’t you love when you spend a couple of frustrating hours analyzing your code only to eventually realize that it is not your html that sucks, it’s your math skills?


When I imported my phone numbers into my new phone something happened and a handful of the numbers are missing and just replaced with a “0”. So I am missing a couple of peoples phone numbers. 🙁 Not only that, but if I try to call one of the people with a “0” phone number my phone decides to call some dude who is a friend of a friend who I have never actually called before. In conclusion, I may need your phone number.

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.

    Hey, so you are on Sid’s or Lindsay’s LJ friends and work is boring so I LJ wander.
    But, your comment on amish with iPods was funny, i was driving to work today and it was the one DJ’s last day, and the other DJ called him an ‘urban amish’. I had no idea what that meant. I mean, he worked on a radio station but supposedly didn’t have a computer or facebook or myspace or an ipod or anything. Made no sense.

    I never read the red eye, but I happened to catch a glance at someone reading it on the train and thought the bromance was appropriate for me 🙂
    Amish people in Chicago amuse me, because they are always doing things like eating at McDnalds, which doesn’t seem amish.
