I actually bought two boxes of chocolates, one for myself and one for my sister. :)And I just finished pumping iron and rowing 5,000 meters in my basement - so it has been a great day and it is not over yet.Temperature update: since my past report on my blog this morning (- 5 degrees F) it has heated up to 5 degrees F now.Fantastic!

Nice intersection of OT topics here.

To those of you who are married - don’t forget the roses today.

Or there could be cannibalism concerns... :D

Roses are red
Violets are blue (and poisonous)
Now give us all treats

I am just a romantic at heart. One of my family members is  fluent French speaker, so it is always good to play some Julien Clerc etc. :)
