The Man and I don't much celebrate Valentine's Day. We're far too lazy for such things. Our day usually ends up sounding like (at night when we're headed to bed) this:
Him: Oh hey, it's Valentine's Day, right? Was I supposed to get you a present or something?
Me: You bought me some books.
Him: I'm such a good guy.
Me: Yes, you are.

Here's what I'm celebrating this week:
—Being ahead of schedule. At the beginning of the month, I talked about working on Effigy's final edits and how my plan was to get through a chapter a day, to be finished by the end of February. I started off behind, but I'm now a good week ahead of schedule. Sure, I'm still incredibly worried and paranoid that it's been going too well and that that's only a harbinger of doom, but hey, I'm ahead of schedule.
—Which is a good thing because my lovely and talented niece is coming up for a few days. She's on school vacation this coming week and decided to kick things off at my house. I have no idea what's on our itinerary, but we never fail to have a good time.
—And last but not least, today is the day that advance tickets for the Veronica Mars movie go on sale. As of the writing of this post, I have not yet procured my tickets but I hope that at 9am EST—or shortly thereafter—I will have. Of course, the closest theater to me playing the movie is in the Boston area, but I love the Boston area and have driven further to see movies in the past. I'm looking forward to it. Like, a lot.
That's going to do it for me today. Thanks for stopping by. Whether you celebrate this holiday or hate it with every fiber of your being, I hope you have a great day and a fantastic weekend.
