So Valentine’s Day went well. I wore a black dress that I bought last summer (and never gotten around to wearing) and I’d mentioned it to Clay that I was probably going to be a little dressy, so he dressed up as well. I gave him sugar cookies (as mentioned in my last entry) and he gave me chocolate-covered marshmallows and a book (Dream Warrior by Sherrilyn Kenyon). Yay, chocolate, marshmallows and smutty romance. He knows me so well, hehe.
We had to drive around to find a restaurant. It took a while to find someplace that didn’t have a minimum hour wait or had a set Valentine’s Day menu. I was so ready to give up that I even told him that we should just consider a drive thru or something and then he says that we should just check one more restaurant. Of course, this happens to be a restaurant with a very short wait and we’re seated within about 5 minutes and had an excellent time. They had really good service as well we kept on getting more bread and I kept on getting more soup (which came with the dish that I ordered). And he was impressed because he found something on the menu that he loved and would actually consider going back to the restaurant for.
It was pretty good. We hung out in his car and talked for a really long time. It’d been a long while seen we’d seen each other, and despite daily texting and phone calls every few days, there’s a lot that we don’t get to talk about. So we did that. I got home by 12:08am today and… yeah, it was a good night.
Today I was woken up at 10am because I was supposed to be up already to go shopping with my friend C. I ended up getting picked up close to 11am is and we headed out to go shopping. We went to an awesome bead shop. I picked out approximately $18 worth of beads. Her total was a tad higher than mine… I bet the bead shop people just loved her by the time her total was calculated. We caught a bus to head somewhere further into the city and we eventually ended up just walking and we ended up getting hot dogs from a street vendor (licensed and all, right on the side of the cart) and we sat on a park bench to people-and-dog watch.
At one point, she was adjusting her jacket (or something like that) and was standing up. This guy comes along and goes “You look like you’re a polite girl. I’m polite. I’m not from around here, I’m from Halifax. Are you from around here? See, I need another $4 to get a room at the [insert organization name here]. Could you help me out? Every little bit helps!” (there were some side commentary from my friend and I during this). Then I go “Sorry, I don’t have any change at the moment” and he goes on about how we’re not polite. Then he moves onto the next park bench and the woman says something and then he goes “Fuck you!”
We went into a coffee shop at that point as my friend thought he had spat on her inadvertently while speaking to her. Ew, I know. So she washed up and then bought coffee, I inhaled the scent of coffee while we waited (yay for silent suffering…? Heh…). Then we headed out and went and saw Confessions of a Shopaholic (came out on February 13th). So. Damn. Good. I mean, for romantic comedy it was really good. A lot of the things that occured did occur in the book series (it covers the first two books), some of the characters’ roles were slightly changed, but yeah… Good movie all around. Great chick flick for you and your friends (if you’re into that sort of thing). Isla Fisher definitely takes the spotlight in the movie as the main character (Rebecca). I’m going to stop before I start sounding like an advertisement, but it was an excellent movie. And the guy who plays Luke Brandon? Not that bad on the eyes…
