Isn't it Romantic?

The wife says to me yesterday, “I don’t want you to bring me flowers tomorrow. I’m serious. I don’t want you spending a fortune.”

She thinks Valentine’s Day is a trumped-up, commercial holiday, and she’s right. I bring her flowers all the time, just cause, and I don’t need a holiday to tell her that she’s the love of my life, though I’ll probably say it again today…jut cause. The emmis is the emmis, am I right?

In the meantime, I hope you guys all have a good day, whether you are married, single, in a relationship, or newly divorced. You can swing by the Banter for the love and a cyber hug. We’ll be here.

I'm taking myself out on a date tonight ... and I'm pretty sure I'll be getting lucky. :-)

I got the girl a stack of gossip and fashion mags and some jelly bellys (her favorite) and tonight we're going to our favorite neighborhood sichuan joint...big doings over here.

really though, her birthday is in 4 days so we just save the big "going out" night for that...i.e. me putting myself into a red meat coma at Old Homestead.

[0] Let's give Vincente Minnelli a litle credit! Great image, great movie.

[1] Do you know that bit of stage patter from Tom Waits' "Nighthawks at the Diner" album? "I ain't kinky, I don't tie myself up first..."

Just go to Momofucko milkbar and get her a corn cookie or a crack pie. Yeah, flowers suck and they end up dying anyway, I never quite understood their purpose but I'm not a woman so there's a lot I don't understand.

“I don’t want you to bring me flowers tomorrow. I’m serious. I don’t want you spending a fortune.”

Do you really believe everything your wife says?

Rose (i.e., pink) champagne. (The real stuff, from France.)

[0] One of my favorite movies!

As for my plans, me and a couple of my fellow single gal-pals from my gym are going to do a vigorous workout tonight and then head up to Dallas BBQ to get our slob on with some ribs, therefore totally ruining our workout efforts! ;-)
