I was driving home last night after a day at work where I desperately tried to keep my eyes open. I was thinking about how much I wanted to crawl into bed in my sweats, tell the South Beach diet to fuck off since I complied perfectly and didn’t lose any weight the 2nd week, and shovel some non-South Beach food in my mouth while watching trash t.v. Then I saw my little computer, nestled in its place on my desk. I had been in a hilarious email convo with some cool chicks, and I was wondering if there were more exchanges while I was driving from work back to civilization from the hinterlands. So I sat down at the ‘puter.
The first and only thing I can focus on is an email in my inbox from NewJersey. There was more to it than this, but you know I can’t copy and paste the emails anymore. The gist of it was, “It’s Valentine’s Day Velvet and we should be doing something.” Emails went back and forth. A phone call came. Plans were made. I would pick up dinner and he would come from work to my house. And that my friends was our plan. I would like to tell you that he followed through and that was that and sign off, happy that my details remained private for another post.
BUT I CAN’T! Because there’s more that’s worth discussing!!!
When he got to my place, I opened the door and found him with a bottle of wine and flowers that he jokingly called Pansies, but they were yellow roses. I adore this man! We ate. We watched t.v. We slept. We fulfilled the (bleeped out) promises of aforementioned IM conversations. We woke up. We went our separate ways to work.
I stopped at the grocery store to stock up on beverages for the office. I called my boss to see if there were any special requests. When I arrived at the office, he helped me unload. Then, all I did, and I swear, is grab something off the printer for myself and saw he printed something so I brought that to him as well. And he said, “You’re being especially nice today, someone must have had a good Valentine’s Day.”
Someone did. At least two someone’s that I know of.
Aw, shucks! Sniff, sniff turned into a big grin, methinks!

It’s so much easier to enjoy a date when you haven’t an entire day to get nervous about it.
This is turning into quite a show. “On the next episode of Velvet in Dupont…”

It’s your thing, honey.
DO what you wanna DO!

And here I am thinking it’s going to be hard to top my valentine’s – dinner consisting of carrots, toast and cheese (thank god today is payday) .. with my cat. 😉
Color me jealous 😉 (and psyched for you)…

Wicked excited for you (only upstaters say wicked we are THAT cool)!
I miss ya and we so need to catch up. Will you be attending the HH next week my darling?
2/15/2006 11:04:35 PM
In case anyone is wondering who “Madison” is in the comments section, it’s my brother talking for our niece. You know, the niece who is just turning 5 months old next week? Yeah. We’re normal. I know.
Disclaimer: Of course I will change the sheets you ass. But keep reading.
To everyone who is bombarding me with emails saying “So glad you had sex!” Where are you reading that? I said we made good on promises that were bleeped out. I never said it was sex.

But I’m glad you had a good Valentine’s day. 🙂
