1. My potential date for Rob’s wedding isn’t going. Now accepting bets or bribes for who I should hook up with at the wedding!

2. Take a good long look at this baby, because soon you will never see it again.

3. I was thinking the other day that I think I actually did fall asleep during the Hush Sound concert. I don’t really remember any of their playing.

4. During the inauguration, did Aretha Franklin sing actual words or did she go all American Idol on us?

5. Some conversations:

me: they really have to stop asking me to do impossible things
eric: like work?

me: i just flushed the penny that fell out of my underwear
scott: you “flushed” the penny? and you waited this long before removing it? okaaaay
me: it fell out of my underwear into the toilet. what else was i to do?
scott: okay, see if I had a piece of cold metal toughing my nether regions, I would get rid of it fairly quickly apparently you keep it there for hours what does that say about you?
me: haha! i felt around for it earlier but couldn’t find it
scott: apparently you weren’t looking hard enough 🙂
me: well, you don’t want to feel up your ass too much at your cubicle
scott: see, that’s what a bathroom is for and yeah, that might look bad

me: i want a job where i can just take off and go wherever whenever i want…
jeff: that’s called unemployed
me: nono, the unemployed can’t afford that did you ever see that sean white (amex?) commercial where he just takes off to snowboard wherever the snow was good? Yeah, I want that. but with less cold.
jeff: ahh well what are you better at than everyone?
me: slacking? man. i can’t even say i sleep well, because i suck at sleeping
jeff: haha

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’m great at sleeping. The only person I know that might be better than me is Matt Harring.
