1). Do you celebrate Valentine's Day?  If so, how ?

2). Chocolate: White, Milk, Semi-sweet or dark?

3).  Something you are looking forward to.

1.  Nope.

2.  Dark Chocolate, unless there are pretzels involved, and then white chocolate.  Although with the pretzel/white chocolate thing, a little goes a long way.

3.  The birth of DGS2

4.  The possibility of a honking snowmaggedon Wednesday night into Thursday (all day).  I'm hoping for a big push out to sea for this storm

1. Only in the very little of way. I bought DH a card and some candy, he will probably do the same for me.

2. dark

Cannot thnk of anything I am looking forward to or dreading.  Kind of a slow uneventful period of life.

We typically exchange cards, I buy the kids these small russell stover boxes of chocolate too.  All of it.  A lot of things.  A lot of things.

Yea, I've been doing this for a long time.  They are only like .99 cents but the kids get a kick out of it, Lol.  I will miss doing little things like that when they go off to college/move out etc.

1.  No, and all the guys at work are utterly incredulous.  2.  I like dark the best and milk the least.  3.  My busiest season at work is February, so while I genuinely enjoy the challenge of February, I look forward to March when I get to do some intensive teaching,  4.  I'm organizing a conference for he end of the month and there are a lot of details to attend to.  I'm a big picture kind of gal.  I understand the importance of getting the details right, but sorta wish I could wave a magic wand and get it all taken care of.

1). Do you celebrate Valentine's Day?  If so, how ? No.

2). Chocolate: White, Milk, Semi-sweet or dark? Dark, always, prefer 70%.

3).  Something you are looking forward to. Going to Copenhagen in May.

4).  Something you are dreading. A work-related meeting that is bound to happen in near future with a guy who is utterly repulsive.

1). Do you celebrate Valentine's Day?  If so, how ? -- Yes, but in a minimalist way.  Dh and I usually exchange cards. I usually get the kids some candy or something.  This year we have a Chef Series dinner on the 13th, so that will be our celebration  - even though The Boy will be with us and we'll be with 100 other people, lol.  The Girl gave up her ticket to this event and she and her BF are going out that night to avoid the 14th craziness.

2). Chocolate: White, Milk, Semi-sweet or dark? --  In order -- dark, semi-sweet, white, milk.

3).  Something you are looking forward to. -- See above about the Chef dinner.

4).  Something you are dreading -- walking to my class today in the snow.  lol it's only about 2", and I only have to walk like .2 miles, but I won't like it!

I can empathize right now! I'm in charge of our yearly regional conference in May.  And I have daily panic attacks about things that are yet undone or undecided or late or whathaveyou. Yet somehow, the next day it's all been sorted out and things are fine.  I have a fantastic committee, so that really helps. We found out yesterday that we have an additional $2000 in sponsorship that we weren't expecting, so now I have some addtional budget -- I'll etierh buy a good door prize, or up the budget for our Tuesday night event (thinking about bringing in live music, since we'll be in Austin. Seems appropriate.)
