Staying In

My first Valentine’s Day date in years just got nixed. Okay, so I’ve never really had a Valentine’s Day date, since I’m not really one for days like this. There’s something about setting aside a day for love that appeals to me in theory, but not in reality. In reality I don’t much like the consumeristic nature, with all of the pressure to buy roses and awful cards and an expensive dinner (okay, I’m not exactly opposed to the dinner).

But when I saw that World Cafe Live would be having a free screening of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and offering a special Valentine’s Day dessert menu (with desserts like strawberries dipped in white and dark chocolate with Godiva chocolate liquore, red velvet layer cake w/ sour cream and cream cheese frosting, and crème brulee), I thought the idea sounded perfect. Yummy desserts and a sort of anti-Valentine’s Day movie! So I proposed the idea to my husband last week and he agreed to go with me. Until he heard about the predicted weather for this week and then he was trying to sell the idea of staying at home.

Well, it looks like the weather has won out, because World Cafe Live will be closed tonight. Oh well. There could be worse things than being stuck inside with my husband on a cold and wintry night. :)
