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.
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.

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.

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.
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?
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 have a feeling this thread was started because Guru found out I just got engaged. Our first date was to a Doc Walker concert, so when I figured they'd be coming back to town for the Calgary Stampede, I thought that might be a good place to propose.
