Is getting new library books exciting? :p
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Going out for a meal with some friends, it's become a sort of tradition and is usually very nice.

Hubby and I went out for an early Valentine's Day dinner on Friday...to avoid the crush! I'm giving him a tree for our local park. :D

I'm eating chocolate that my husband got for me. Later we'll watch a movie if the kids will cooperate.

We celebrated it yesterday! New Zealand is a day ahead of the US. Valentine's Day is not a big deal here, so only the youngsters get excited about it. The library marked it with a Blind Date with a Book promotion which went very well --people choose an anonymous book wrapped in brown paper from a lucky dip bin and agree to give it a go even it's it's something right out of their usual comfort zone. There were spot prizes in some of the books and all participants are invited to a champagne and nibbles soiree at the end of the promotion.

Happy St. Valentine's Day to all! Planning to eat plenty of chocolate too! I bought a box of Hershey kisses for my department.
