There are no pink chickens?

1. Thursday night Mat came over. I made a pizza because I had leftover cheese and sauce. Then I realized I also had onion and garlic so I made a caramelized onion and garlic pizza. Delicious.

We watched Atonement. How the heck was that an Oscar-nominated movie? It was awful! At first it was interesting, I really did love the first half hour or so, but then it just kept getting worse and worse. Awful. And (spoiler) I hate movies that just kind of end with someone wrapping everything up for you. And this was the worst because they not only did that but they did that by fast forwarding about 40 years. It was awful. I’ll give them that the cinematography was good. Oh, and they could have had a little more faith in the audience to have us believe that the three people playing that chick through the years was the same person and still have given her a different haircut.

Then we went and got a drink.

(213) what am I missing?
(708) milkshakes with a hot girl.
(213) oh who is with you?
(708) 🙁

(708) well I am now watching a movie with a really cute guy.
(213) the cat?
(708) …maybe…

4. The bad thing about walking half a mile to Trader Joe’s is that I can’t possibly carry back everything I need let alone want.

5. The good thing about hosting 24 every 5 weeks is that it forces me to clean out the leftovers from the last time I hosted every 5 weeks.

6. Idol is just bad this year. Bad bad bad. As much as I didn’t like Adam Lambert at least he pushed it every week and did something crazy. These people are all too predictable and boring. I miss the people like Daughtry who took chances and made the songs “their own.” Here’s where we stand…I think I can still win if Casey James somehow wins…

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.
