Valentine's Day 2004

Alright, you've waited long enough to find out what I'm going to do (if you don't already know). Since I finally have a spare moment now that I've just bombed my midterm (which could be a $3,000 mistake), I'm going to tell you all about what I'm going to do this weekend.

Just to give a little background, I've never had plans for Valentine's Day before. Usually, I give flowers to all my girl friends, and spend the rest of the evening serenading girls with Fleet Street. There's really nothing more fulfilling than watching girls melt at the sound of your voice.

But this Valentine's Day, I'm doing something different. No, I didn't all of a sudden snag a girlfriend. Instead, my friend, Barbara, notified me as of a couple weeks ago that we had plans (of which I was previously unaware). On Saturday morning (V-Day), I'm going to pick up Barbara, drive up to Point Reyes and take a nice private horseback trail ride in and through the woods and up to view the Pacific Ocean. Then we're going to head to Santa Rosa where we'll check into a bed and breakfast and dally around the town until dinner time. Then we'll have a nice dinner by Sonoma, perhaps some dancing, perhaps some chilling, then a movie, some wine, and finally some sleep.

The next day, Barbara's birthday, we're joining up with all her friends in Napa Valley and we're going on a wine-tasting tour with a fancy dinner to finish it off. Then we're driving back home and doing homework. Nice weekend eh? I never would've thought of it myself. I'll let you all know how it goes next time I write here.

Anyways, this should hopefully be fun. I personally don't think I'm ever going to plan anything like this again for anyone but a girlfriend. Not that it was super stressful or that I won't have a good time, but I feel this kind of thing is most rewarding if there's a deeper emotional investment in it. So if you wanna spend a romantic weekend with me next year, please check the girlfriend box first, like so:

Well, that's all I have for you for now. Stayed tuned and as usual, feel free to leave me comments. I read them you know. They entertain me. When I'm bored. Or at work. Or trying to study. You know?
