So what did you get (and gave) and how you spend the day after all?

Valentines day was yesterday and by now most of us either gave or got something. So what was it? No doing the dishes does not count!

We spend the day skiing with friends (my first blue without rolling down the mountain!! Yeah!!), had a nice cheese fondue and then "sleep" :P

I got an amazing gift. A dvd of a movie i wanted to watch for ages but i was too lazy to go to the cinema. And i gave.... well something

Valentines day was tomorrow ....
Are you... from the future?

The girlfriend's on vacation in India with her dad, so a simple SMS exchange of "Happy artificial holiday!" had to suffice.

My dog gave me a reminder about how great it is to be single.

She behaved like a man.

She started the morning by giving me kisses and cuddles.
Then, right after breakfast, she just gave me SH!T!

Woke up in an amazing hotel, had breakfast brought in by the omni-present yet discreet butler "Andreas" and went from Mimosa's to Grey Goose. Excellent.

Re: So what did you get (and gave) and how you spend the day after all?

I started the day at 6:30 in Berlin where I had spent one day with my gf/ex-gf/gf/ex-gf/gf after arriving by rideshare on Friday. We half-slept in for a few minutes and then had a nice breakfast before I took the S-Bahn for 15 hours of regional trains back to Basel. It was short, but I couldn't stay longer and it was great to see her.

(Schoenes Wochenende Ticket: 37 Euros for all regional trains in Germany)
