Happy Heart Day!

Today is Valentine's Day. It brings out the nuttery in all of us. People are angry about it. People are sad about it. Nervous about it. Excited. Valentine's Day can be stressful. I don't know. It's not high up there on my list of things to worry about, but that doesn't mean I don't want it to exist. It has fun potential. I never hope for movie-like fun, candle-lit dinners and jewelry. I want fun that I like. Tonight was fun that I liked.

I didn't think today would be all that spectacular because I am sick and annoyed about it. I hardly ever get sick and I hate being slowed down by my own stupid body. We went to see Marc Maron this weekend up in Minneapolis. I felt sluggish, but I persevered, through the MALL OF AMERICA! That's how tough I am. I don't mean to brag or anything, but Marc Maron gave me a hug. I had some treasures to give him. I am pretty sure that's why he hugged me. The sight of me doesn't just drive people to hug me. I brought him a bowl from Gary. Marc is into cats and pottery so, duh perfect!
I was going to make him some cookies, but the sluggishness set in Friday evening and I could feel the sick coming on. Scott made me stop. He said, "You don't bake cookies when you are sick." He pulled me out of the kitchen and made me lay down. 

Today back to work. Midday I yawned and I realized that I hadn't been hearing right all day and now all the sudden I was. So, that's good! I'm getting better that's what that means. 

After work I stopped by the grocery store to find something for Scott. I thought it would be funny to give him a heart of chocolates. I was there with the bad husbands finding a last minute present like an asshole. We all were in the picked over candy aisle, trying to find the best of the cliche. Nothing frilly left. Just plain red boxes. WE'RE ALL LOSERS! I got a bottle of fancy wine to make up for my lack of prior planning. 

When I got home Scott had made homemade chicken soup, which was delicious, and he got me a print from Domestica! YES! I want everything in that store! It's so great. AND THEN! We watched the Westminster Dog Show! Holy shit. For feeling like hell it was a freaking excellent night.  

P.S. One of the Dogs was named: First Griff Tina Fey

Now I'm off to Ny-Quil induced lala-land.
