    Valentine's day, the one day in the year that a man can buy his wife flowers without her getting suspicous ;)

    This page is intentionally left justified.

      Well, depending on the state of your parkinson, the birthday and (in some countries) nameday would also be fine.

      Enoch was right!
      Enjoy the last years of Rome.

    Valentine's Day of 2000 was my first-month anniversary with Kristin. However, first-month also becomes thirteenth month, and then twenty-fifth month, and it stops being an interesting number. (And Kristin said I could stop counting months now, since we're into two years. ;) )

    Getting explained who this ailie is.

    Hopefully, somebody can explain it.

        no, i didn't.
        Was yesterday (Feb. 14th) his/her birthday? Then: Happy birthday from me.

        An iBook is too expensive to give as a gift, although my mother got one to her birthday (from my father).

    I'm 26. I have a date in an hour. This is the first time I've had a date on Valentine's Day. It's the first V-Day I'm not single.

    I'm a little bit happy.

    Thanks to everyone. At the time of this writing, I've received 14 bouquets of flowers, 6 iBooks, 22 Happy Birthday wishes, and 8 VW Bugs. What a take!

    There seems to have been some sort of delivery backlog, however, but that's understandable considering the sheer volume of birthday loot. Undoubtedly it will all be showing up at my door at any moment.

    Well This Day I will do the same as the other days, just my and my computer 'til end of work and later who knows, some beers, rum and something to forget this day. Maybe spend some time playing with Perl at night or with my PS1.

    By the way YES I'm Single and with out a Girlfriend, but I hope not for much time.

    God help me always to see the other face of the coin. And prevent me from accusing of betrayal those who don't think just as I do.

    I'll be taking the other half out for dinner, but we are waiting until the weekend to avoid the mad rush.
