    OK. Here's my night-before-Valentine's story, when my wife and I had a few hours to ourselves.

    Went to check out the new World Market store that just opened. It's a definite "meh." We couldn't decide on what to do for dinner, so we just ended up at Smashburger. Another "meh." The place was dirty and understaffed and the SmashFries were really, really greasy.

    Made a quick stop at a bookstore for Valentine's gifts for the kids, then went to pick up one kid from the house where the other kid is having a sleepover. Got fed up with the behavior of the little girl hosting the sleepover, so we came home. Everyone except me was asleep by 9.

    Plans for tomorrow, the actual V-Day: A long run in the morning, nothing in the afternoon, and the misbehaving child from tonight's sleepover and her mom are coming over for dinner. It might be awkward, and I'll want them to leave a lot earlier than they actually will.

    So I've got all that going for me, which is nice.

    You have a lonely single mom coming to your house on Valentine's Day?

    That's the dream, man. That's the dream!

    Buy two bottles of white wine.

    A girl decided to go out with my friend Jason... who grew up playing hockey... on Feb. 13 six years ago (it was a Friday) after meeting on Match.com and used the date as a "Screw You Valentines Day" date.

    Their 3rd anniversary is this summer and they have an adorable 1-year-old daughter to boot. :)

    Girlfriend has decided to cook leftovers Saturday, so we can go out Sunday when it is less crowded.

    Dick scoffs at your lack of commitment.
