If you were with someone, how did you celebrate Valentines Day? If you were single, how did you cope? DId it go by in a flash, or did you really enjoy the day?

For myself, I spent it with my girlfriend; she and I went out for some Thai food and caught "BECAUSE I SAID SO" in the theatres. She loved it; I didn't. We wanted to see a different movie, but it was raining, and we didn't want to take the long walk to the other theatre.

Everyone else/

I've seen TWO movies so far this year: Because I Said So - (3*); Borat - (5*)

I enjoyed some peppered beef jerky and Yellow Tail Cabernet Sauvignon (I love this brand of cheap wine) that my wife got me. She got some much needed sleep as my gift (along with the large box of Mike and Ike's that I bought for her). MMMM just what the doctor ordered.

My son got my wife roses and a cute card with a list of coupons to make dad do some work around the house.

Needless to say, I'm not too happy with him right now. However I recognize that he is by far a better man than I

Does someone live near a Trader Joe's?

That Yellow Tail Cab is one of our favorites as well - and I don't think it's bad at all. I just can't do the Two-Buck Chuck anymore.

My girlfriend left this morning to spend a month in Oaxaca to continue her PhD research. Yesterday evening was spent packing her suitcase (insert obvious joke here) and organizing the things that had to wait until this morning. Then, this morning, we left at 6:30a to get to LAX by 9:15a.

Actually, we did have a nice dinner. But no time for anything overly romantic.

Well, after 17 years of marriage, I am never quite sure what to do...

I decided that since my wife has a new job, I would get in good with all the people she works with and send flowers to her new office. Great in theory...

Then it decides to snow like hell here and she decides not to go into the office. Works from home.

I get an Email from the one person I know at the new office saying she is enjoying my wife's flowers...

Oh well. I tried.

I've been working all kindss of hours so I told Mrs. JJD and IJ that since it was Valentine's Day I would meet them for dinner, which hasn't been happening very much, if at all, lately. We kind of did our Valentine's Day-thing Sunday when we went to the Supermall (Note for non-Seattlites: It's not really that "Super".) and I bought Mrs. JJD and IJ new purses and we wnet to Johnny Rocket's for a late lunch.

Holy fuck shit motherfucker shit. Read comics. Fuck shit shit fuck shit I sold out when I did my job. Fuck fuck fuck shit fuck. Sorry had to do it....

Took my gal out to a nice dinner after giving her 30 long stem red roses and a bunch sugar-free chocolates.

Stayed at work late, went home, and went to bed early.

My girlfriend lives in a different city so she's not getting her present until she shows up here tonight. I did mail her a card, though.

Tried to do something other than flowers for once so I looked for websites that rated/reviewed chocolates and ended up picking the one I found mentioned most

Yeah, I thought I had eaten good chocolate before. Nothing, and I mean that more than you know, has ever come anywhere close to this stuff in quality. It's not even fair to consider this and everything else the same thing. They aren't. This is Super Chocolate. I will never eat any other from now on.

Oh we did dinner and ...stuff..too. She got me some nice things for her to wear and Office Season 1 & 2. I'm not sure how I got presents on Valentines Day but I'm not complaining.

Fondue for dinner, wine for her, beer for me, single malt scotch for both, and a rented DVD of Idiocracy.

We do the fancy restaurant deal enough as it is, and we both love fondue, but seldom have it because it's so incredibly messy, greasy, generally unhealthful.

Idiocracy was pretty good in case anyone hasn't seen it.

I'll third the love of Yellow Tail. The GF and I are partial to the Riesling.

We decided to have a low-key night this year, and just went to a local Persian restaurant, and then I filed her taxes. And it was great :)

My wife and I have been married 20+ years. This year we said, "Valentines Day is a stupid holiday, let's not do anything". So, I decided to cook dinner and call that good. The menu ended up being broiled lobster tails, asparagus almondine, and grilled corn-on-the-cob. Dessert was a store-bought heart-shaped creme brulee.

She was shocked, surprised, and happy all at the same time. She took pictures of the meal and emailed them to her friends and family. I scored major-big-time points.

I told that next year I really wasn't going to do anything. I wonder if I can really get away with that now?

I got three packs of random kids valentines and made a "trail from our bedroom door to her real card, so she could followthem when she got up.

and I ordered proflowers 18 roses and a vase. Very Beautiful, and I scored BIG on that. We're going to see the Hugh Grant/Drew Barrymoore film and dinner tomorrow night.
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

Being in central IL, we had about 10-12" of snow and 35 mph winds ... so my wife and I stayed home. We had a couple of New York strips and some wine ... very relaxing.

We exchanged gifts Tuesday night after putting the kids to bed. I got her a dozen roses and some kissy bear thing that lights up and plays music. She got me Norah Jones latest CD (The W at Amazon). We went out Friday night, instead of Wednesday (weeknights are bad for us...), and hit the Chinese buffet and walked around the mall since none of the movies playing appealed to us. We ended the evening by grocery shopping at Wal-Mart at 11 o'clock at night.

I left my wife a love letter when I left that morning. She had left me one in my computer case. When I got home, I had a Hallmark card and a chocolate rose for her and she had a homemade card and a batch of cookies for me. Then we just laid on the couch together and watched a movie. It was very nice.

I travel a lot and it usual for someone next to you in the airport to just start talking (usually fairly loudly). But there's been a few times. Once, I was at an airport bar watching a game or something and a guy came up behind me (you sort of feel that)...
