Last night we were supposed to get 1-3″ of snow, which would have made for a slushy mess during this morning’s run. But the weather people were wrong and I thnk the storm passed by us with just a few flurries. I was supposed to do an 8 mile tempo this morning… but it turned more into a tempo-ish run. Even though it wasn’t that cold, there was black ice everywhere around the park… so I’m sure I showed off some interesting moves this morning.
Speaking of today, I’m sure you’ve been told 3,564 times by M&Ms and Hallmark that today is Valentine’s Day.
I am not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about loving each other and showing it… but it’s a holiday that is so overly commercialized that I have a hard time jumping on board. Blah. Needless to say, we don’t tend to celebrate it. Unless you count going to Chipotle, which is usually what our Valentine’s Dinner is.
I do think it’s a really fun holiday to celebrate with family… and love sending Valentine’s Day goodies to my niece and nephew.
So that being said, my night will be as exciting as it was for Mardi Gras (am I just getting old and boring?!).
In honor of the day of romance, though, I stumbled across this which is pretty interesting:
I have always thought that French was a very romantic language… but am surprised that the German way to say “I love you” is considered romantic? I always think that the German language sounds so rough and angry. I am surprised too that English is considered the second-most romantic language!? Definitely would not have guessed that.
How do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?
Which language do you think is the most romantic?
