We Missed It, And It Was All My Fault....

February 14 is the feast day of St. Cyril and St. Methodius. These two great men were missionaries who translated the Bible into the slavonic language. They also invented the Cyrilic alphabet. What greater love can be shared with anyone than the love of the Saviour? These two men definitely did that.

Valetine's Day was really nice. The day before, Bob gave me flowers (carnations, my favorite. Roses make me think of funerals, carnations make me think of corsages. Macabre, I know..), a balloon that plays "I Got You Babe", and a card. On "the day" he took me to see "He's Not That Into You", which made me glad I was to stupid to know how to play the game in the first place when Bob and I were dating. I'll tell you the story some time when we all could use a good laugh. Then, we went to Denny's for dinner. Very romantic, considering when we were dating, we always went to Denny's after the show so we could just laugh and talk until really late. Didn't hang out at his place with him until we were engaged. Well, thinking about gettin engaged, anyway...Yes, we just hung out. My badness was never in that way. I'll tell you what way another time.

So, next year, instead of sending Valentines, I may send out Cyrils and Methodiui. Does that mean I have to learn a slavonic language?

BTW In case you missed it on my St. of the Day button, today is the feast day of St. Onesimus. You know the one. From the book of Philemon in the Bible. If you missed it, it is a short book with only one chapter. The lesson on hope and forgiveness in this story is absolutely beyond my words...

I love Denny's! Nothing says I love you like a grand slam and a good cuppa joe! Happy Belated Valentine's Day!

Michelle said...

Katdish, Happy Belated Valentine's Day to you too. And Cyril's and Methodiui Day, as well. Yeah, I am a hopeless romantic. Denny's. Sigh. Memories....
Michelle, can't list the ways in a comment. I will just have to set up a mini series of posts to explain my badness...

I'm all about wherever the food is good! It sounds great to me!

I'd also like to hear your sordid stories.


We stayed home on V-night and Big AL made me a steak dinner! (I made dessert). I rented the movie "Night at the Retunde"Mainly because Richard Gere was in it and I thought that would be funny for Big Al after all the jokes we've been making about him.

ANd, just so you know, the jokes ruined the movie for me. Not enough "chemistry" between Gere and Lane. (she just wasn't rodent looking enough for him I guess! ;)

Sherri,

I gotta hand it to you. I didn't know that in addition to typos, you also butcher movie titles. What a gift! ;)

Night at the Retunde makes me think of a spa evening at a fat farm.

I think you mean Nights in Rodanthe.

Oh, and Happy V,C, & M Day Everyone!

We don't have a Denny's near us, so I haven't been there in years. But it was THE place to be during college

How Sherri would spell Seth Rogen. Not that she'd ever want to see any movies with him in them...

Denny's. I love it. Did you get the free Grand Slam about a week ago?

Can you believe our Denny's went out of business? Absolutly no place in this town for the boozers to sober up before heading home at 3am (NO, I am not one of those and would not have gone to our Denny's at 3 am...a bit too scary...)
