We had a low-key Valentine's Day weekend around here. I took Dave to dinner on Friday night at a place called Daryl Wine Bar in New Brunswick -- we've wanted to try it for a while. It gave us the illusion of being in Manhattan without paying Manhattan prices. (Or spending two hours on the train.)
Dave bought me some pants at Banana Republic on Saturday. I haven't bought any new clothes in months, so it's probably a good thing he stepped in!
Gifts notwithstanding, neither one of us puts much stock in Valentine's Day. It's one of those manufactured florist's holidays when the merchants convince us we all need to spend money. Red roses, heart-shaped candy boxes -- gimme a break.
Today I'm going back into the city for the second round of my job interview. I hope to also do some photography -- I haven't had any new photos to put on Flickr in about a week.
