Low Key Valentine's Day

Because Valentine's day was on a Saturday, we opted out and celebrated during the instead. C treated me to a nice dinner, and we went to a book reading/signing of an author we both really like (free!).

Since we'd celebrated earlier in the week, Valentine's day itself was a pretty quiet and relaxing affair. I spent the morning cleaning my apartment, which took forever since I was away last weekend and the place was just gross, but it felt so good to be in a clean space again when I was done. C came over in the afternoon, and we went out to lunch at one of our favourite local places (yum, Pho!). I paid, since C had paid for our dinner earlier in the week. We exchanged gifts which was fun, since we both bought each other inexpensive used books: I bought him T.C. Boyle's Greasy Lake, and he bought me Haruki Murakami's The Elephant Vanishes. We rented Tropic Thunder from RedBox and made a cheap dinner at home. Tropic Thunder was truly terrible and unfunny, which was disappointing. Even so, it was a nice day.

Just started reading your blog - very interesting! I noticed your Roth savings bars and wanted to let you know that contributions for 2010 jump to $5,500 :)

Thanks! And thanks for the heads up on the 2010 Roth limits -- I'm increasing my sidebar right now. ;)
