Normally, I kind of ignore this holiday. But instead, today I had lunch with an old flame (who brought me a white rose, aww...), had a long conversation with Kevin, and will be having Ethipian food with Jed. (And will hopefully be talking to David, if he calls me back soon, and maybe Karina, if she calls me at some point? I wish I knew what time it was in Australia.) So rather than blowing off Valentine's Day, I appear to be celebrating it in full fashion, with many people who I love a great deal. Which is leaving me an odd mix of happy, sad, fond, wistful, nostalgic, and just generally emotional. I find myself wanting to burst into tears and/or song at odd moments. I suspect what I really need is some curry comfort food to calm me down. Soon. Ethiopian curries aren't the same as Sri Lankan, but they manage to serve a similar function.
In any case, I wish you a less confusing Valentine's Day than mine. :-)
