A homemade card, a dance to La Vie en Rose just past midnight in front of the bartenders and last dregs of the regulars, by ourselves on a cigarette strewn floor.

No chocolate, no flowers.

Perfect.

And on top of it, we won the pub quiz.

yeah pop quiz winner! when you come to NY i'm taking you to my quiz place. it's impossible. I brought an ivy crew and we lost-- quite pathetically.

Sounds very romantic, like a scene from a movie... Not a cheesy romantic comedy though, sounds more like a cool, slightly gritty indie film, starring Christina Ricci as Lauren, and Paul Rudd as Stephane. ;)

Happy Valentines Day Lauren! Life will always be la vie en rose...

Ahhh, that's lovely. You two are the sweetest thing. And did you wear the green sweater?

Ammo and I had dinner in the restaurant next to the 5th last night and had a great time watching couples having enormous difficulty with fondue and raclette. The flames were out of control and there was spitting oil and burning cheese all over. They weren't happy. I, on the other hand, was laughing so hard at it all that I cried.

Top tip: naked flames, boiling oil and melted cheese DO NOT make for a romantic meal.

We also didn't do a traditional V-day...though we did buy a reduced-price Whitman's Sampler and shared the top level of it ;-)

We decided that it would be much more fun to go see Pink Martini perform this weekend than blow the money on an overpriced, overcrowded dinner last night.

You guys seem like such a cute couple :-)
