Valentine’s Day Recap

February 15, 2005
Last night was great.

Well – first of all – Chad sent me roses at work, in case I forgot to mention that yesterday – very nice.

The restaurant was wonderful. Small and quaint - quite “underwhelming” – but the food was fantastic and authentic. At one point, I leaned over and told him – this is where all the cool people are dining tonight, as a gay couple made their way to a table near ours and another crew of very “artsy” looking people came in the front door.

We had the special – only $50 a couple- which was quite reasonable. I had the Hungarian goulash, the Wiener schnitzel and black forest cake for dessert. He had the goulash, Jaeger schnitzel and this cake called the bee sting. SOOOOoooo good. A pound cake sort of thing filled with this honey/almond custard and topped with this toasted almond glaze. FABU!

After that, we did the romantic gesture of going to Walgreens and buying a basal thermometer to track fertility and whatnot.

Don’t everyone go “Awwwwwwwww” at once.

Then we went homeward – had a nice time in bed (period has STILL not started!)– and fed each other lindt truffles while listing out the ten things we love most about each other.

Actually, I listed eleven. (hee hee).

I don’t know if I ever mentioned this before, but we love listing things and making up little games. We do this often and have been probably since we started dating. We play a lot of what we like to call “Alphabet Games” – which usually have to do with music. Such as – name songs that are named after women, start with A. Okay – Amanda by Waylon Jennings. B – Uhhhh Billie Jean by Michael Jackson . . . and so on.

Anyway – we have all sorts of variations with this alphabet game.

A few days ago I asked him to begin listing the top cheesiest saxophone solos of all time. We’re still thinking on that one – although I did offer the one from Jackson Brown and Clarence Clemmon’s “Friend of Mine.”

Anyway – it was a great evening, altogether.

I suppose that I am bloated or something like that – because the scale shows an EIGHT POUND WEIGHT GAIN!!! How is this possible? You know, I really ought to go into a “weight gain” business if this is the kind of results I can produce. If they’re making a Bridget Jones III, they’d better send Renee to me. I think I can get the job done.

I really think that it may be bloating or something. Chad said my face looked as though it had swelled up overnight. Bizarre. I’m not letting it get me down. Just have to keep on keeping on.

Well – more soon.
