It’s still a silly holiday. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of going shopping last Friday, and finding a few things that I thought someone might like. (A sweater. And some pajama pants, because, despite his insistence to the contrary, he didn’t have any. Sweatpants, yes. Pajama pants, no. There is a difference.)
I was serious when I said that (a) the presents were just because, and not for Valentine’s day and (b) that reciprocation was not required. However, when he went to go fetch breakfast Saturday morning (which was really nice in and of itself), he was gone a little longer than the usual donut-and-sausage-roll-fetching trip.
He came back with a little bag, which he tried to pretend wasn’t there. (“What? The bags had donuts in them!”) I pointed out that I didn’t think donuts came in gift bags. He finally caved and gave me one of these:
Yes, a pink one. But I like it anyway.
And some games, too…although I believe Final Fantasy XII was really for him… (“Take the game with you! You should play it! But don’t save over my game, ok?”)
But the Nintendo wasn’t for Valentine’s day, either. Hehe.
I shall close with the traditional Valentine’s fun, which involves making a list of the first 10 songs that pop up on your MP3 player/computer with “love” in the title. Note: I am at work, and the selection is far more limited than the computer at home.

Maroon 5 – “This Love”
Pixies – “La La Love You”
Sarah McLachlan – “I Love You”
