I Got Chlymidia From My Valentine!

Heh! That got your attention eh? I had TWO Valentines over last night. Am I a play-ah or what? I invited friends, Joe and Steve, over for lasagna for supper. They arrive at 6:00PM:

Joe: (thrusting a beautiful plant into by hands) "Happy Valentine's Day! It's a Chlamydia!"

Steve: NO! NO! It's a Cyclamen! CY-CLA-MEN!

The plant (and that exchange) was the PERFECT Valentine gift! It was fun to spend time with the guys again. We had supper, played games, had peanut butter pie and watched "Meet The Fockers". It's always nice to see them. They make me believe that maybe there are still 'nice' guys out there somewhere.

Today I went to breakfast with D at the The Pancake Cafe. What a zoo. Remind me not to go there on the weekends again! Sheesh! But breakfast was great as was catching up with my old friend.

I watched the opening ceremonies of the Olympics. I LOVED the 'Aboriginal People of Canada' thing (other than the NBC announcer who insisted on talking over the whole thing) but was so disgusted with the airing of the footage of the Georgian Luger's death scene that I shut it off and haven't turned it back on. It was tragic enough without having to see that clip. Lots of kids were watching those opening ceremonies. Extremely poor taste NBC! I'll go back to my Dirty Jobs and sitcom reruns thanks!

I'll end this with a picture of my REAL Valentine...striking the pose (complete with lip licking) on Valentine's morning. Dependable, loyal, true, delivers copious amounts of kisses, will snuggle all night, worships the ground I walk on. and makes me feel like a rock star every time I come in the room. Who could ask for more

Happy Valentines Day!!!

I have a very similar cyclamen at work to bring home, but I think it has thrips and thus needs a bit of treatment before I bring it into this house. Love them.

I missed the opening ceremonies - was at work - but I've wanted to slap the snot out of Bob Costas with previous Olympics. He just can't seem to refrain from talking over everything and can't seem to learn that it's EXTREMELY. RUDE.

Mr. Ben: Captain of the Bed.

I am so not a V-day person, but I'm glad you had a good day. I got home late on Friday and missed all the stuff about the luger that everyone is so ruffled about. Of course, I love the Olympics (especially the Winter Games) so much that I'd still be watching as much as I could anyway.

Hey, we're all different. It would be awfully boring if we were all the same!

No TWO persons could keep up with YOUR social schedule. ;)
