T-minus 24 Hours and Counting

Hmmm, let’s see if I have everything…

1) Overpriced, moderately-racy Valentine’s card, check.

2) Flowers and Walkers Shortbread Cookies, che…oh, I knew I was missing something (mental note: hit Target after work today).

3) Two tickets to Monty Python’s Spamalot…for next weekend…check.

4) Dinner reservations for two…also for next weekend…check.

5) Obligatory rehash of old Valentine’s Day Huntsville Times column and blog posts…check, check, check and check!

That about covers it. Have a great weekend, everyone. And guys, if she really loves you, she still will even if you screw everything up.

Believe me, I know.

    I thought about you and your blogs the other night. I was in a store and saw the Valentines Cards, so I stopped to read some. They seemed so stupid and sappy – I didn’t buy any.

    We’re off to dinner, theater and a B&B this evening in Abingdon, VA. Not for V-day, mind you. We’re finally getting around to celebrating our anniversary that we didn’t have time to celebrate last month. #22

    Atta boy, Hal. Go against the flow!

    And congrats on #22. No small thing these days.

    Speaking as someone who hasn’t celebrated valentine’s day with a boy since I was 19 or 20, (that’s been five years if you’re counting), Eyeguy is right. You can completely screw it up and if she’s worth anything, she’ll love you anyway. I got a maglite from the man I would’ve married and I loved it, and him, regardless.

  4. Mike the Eyeguy

    A Maglite? Seriously? Sheez, you’re better off without him…

    (note to self: return red Maglite ASAP!)

  5. kristiS

    I love that maglite. It was the last gift he got to pick out for me himself since shortly thereafter he got sick and then everything else happened.

  6. Mike the Eyeguy

    That doesn’t sound like a story with a happy ending, so if the Maglite is a sacrament and reminder to you of better times, then hang on to it tightly, my dear, and take care.

  7. kristiS

    Oh, I’m fine most of the time now. It’s been several years. But my cousin did use that maglite to attempt to chase down a cougar a few years ago, so it does have a happier memory associated with it now. Sorry to ruin the cheerful Valentine’s Day mood.

  8. Mike the Eyeguy

    No apologies necessary; Valentine’s Day, and really life as a whole, are not all sweet like chocolate, but bitter too, and we should have the courage to recognize that and say so.

    Now, about that cougar–I’m intrigued. I have seen those powerful creatures up close before and I would think that even the largest Maglite would be of little use when chasing one down.

    Haven’t celebrated Valentine’s Day since I was old enough to realize. If you expect something tomorrow and don’t get it, then you are disappointed. So if you know you aren’t getting something then when you DON”T get something then no biggy. So NO my husband and I don’t do Valentine’s. For the above and it is so close to Chistmas and husband’s birthday. Save money and have better of the two. But if he ever does get me something I would be floored. We are talking about the guy who forgot to get a 1 year anniversary card (we already did presents). I gave him 24 hours then got mad 🙂 Have a Happy One. OH BTW don’t know when you and Eye Gal are going to Spam-a-Lot but My dad and I are going on Friday

  10. Mike the Eyeguy

    Ah yes, the old “lower expectations so low that you’re practically a cinch to exceed them” trick. Use that one all the time.

    We’re going Saturday. I’m already smiling at the prospect of taunting French knights and evil rabbits.

    Here’s to all the single people who agree that V-Day is over rated.

    Here’s to all the women out there who got their nails done today knowing they’d venture outside to do yard work or house maintenance on a beautiful February day…instead of putting their newly polished nails in glass cases.

    Here’s to that staple gun that can secure just about anything in place…at least the boarder around the bottom of my deck.

    Here’s to all those love birds who…uh…er…make the effort.

    I really should get a life…

    you will love Spamalot! 🙂

    Here’s to you, cg, and that adventuresome life of yours!

    Laurie, you’ve seen it? In Seattle or on Broadway?
