Val's Employed and Ready to Party Party

Valerie’s Employed and Ready to Celebrate Celebration!

MattyK tastes my wine (some French dessert wine) and makes the same face I make when I taste his martinis:

Matt: This tastes like a pixie stick…It tastes like Tinkerbelle was killed and ground up and juiced into the glass

Val makes her signature sad face: “That makes me a cannibal!”

Last night was Valerie’s Employed and Ready to Celebrate Celebration at Salt Creek Wine Bar. Highlights from the night include:

• Josh brought me a little gong to put on my desk at work since I told him it is completely empty.

• Jenny ordered a beer!

• Reiden doesn’t hate me she just only likes me for very short periods of time.

• Brandana’s friend said that prettier people get hired over unprettier people. I said that’s how I got my job.

• Joe called me from across the table, then he hung up on me.

• Alina told me I could have JoeJoe once she breaks up with him.

• I agreed to sleep with Josh and he will leave me in the morning, that makes me a Bond girl.

• Joe was going to blow me a kiss but he blew it to MattyK instead.

• Brandana blew me a kiss and I made out with it.

• Brandana offered me and Alina $20 to make out.

• I touched matts lips then touched joes so they indirectly kissed

• Matt said he would make out with himself but didn’t know how. So I showed him how to by making out with my hand then I wiped the slobber on his mouth.

• Umm, I am sure there is more that I am forgetting that didn’t involve making out 🙂

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.

    Thanks Jen, hopefully next time!
    Sorry Sid, I would have but even after one glass of wine I get a little loopy and might have done even more damage to your knee. 🙁
