Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy VD to everyone out there! Kevin and I exchanged cards and wouldn't you know it--both cards we picked out featured beagles. Big shocker there.

Another Germany observation: small bags. I'm talking about the plastic bags you put food in--the kind of thing I used Ziploc bags for in the US. Ziploc is very difficult to find here, so people either use the twist-tie kind, or this strange opaque kind. The second are shaped like plastic grocery sacks with two handles you can tie together. The weird thing is that they're antibacterial. Whoever thought of making a plastic bag antibacterial? Apparently the Germans.

Today is a shopping day. Kevin doesn't know it yet, but I'll be picking out an expensive Valentine's diamond. Or maybe not. Maybe just a new fountain pen. We're headed to the pen store and then back to Wal Mart for some more stuff we've discovered we need.

I got up super-early this morning. Well, very early for me--8:00. And to think there was a time I started work at 8:00. I don't know how I did it. Well, I do know. Not very well. I was constantly late. Oh well, those days are over. Anyway, I know I'm going to be exhausted later today. But that's okay, I take a nap every day anyway.

I've yet to consume a German beer. My God, what's wrong with me??? Perhaps we'll have to remedy that tonight.

May I recommend Krombacher? Oh, and Happy Valentine's Day!
