Happy Valentine's Day
Yeah, I know, I'm saying this a day late. Well, for Valentine's Day, I gave Shan a little card to start the day. Later, a dozen red roses with two heart-shaped balloons were delivered to her room, along with two white ones from the kids. Later still, she received a box from the Vermont Bear Company!
After we got home, Shan brought a big ol' bouquet of balloons (one has a push-button that plays "I think I love you!") attached to a Pittsburgh Steelers popcorn bowl set!
Inside the set were a couple bags of popcorn, two boxes of Milk Duds, and a box of Sugar Babies. If you don't know by now, one of our big "things" is to have popcorn with melted butter and then load the popcorn up with Milk Duds! Do not knock it until you try it! It is goooooooooooooood stuff!! :-) She said there was going to be a movie in there too, but she couldn't find the movie she was looking for. Of course, she won't tell me what movie it was because she wants to get it for my birthday or Christmas... How am I supposed to help her out if she doesn't tell me!? :-)
The kids sent my Mom two white roses. From us, the kids got a movie each, some trading cards, and some candy. From their grandparents, they got balloons, candy, and cards/toys. It was a very cool day!
I found SingStar Rocks! online the other day, so I bought it and now we have all four SingStar versions (for the U.S.). I can't wait to play it this weekend. It has some really cool songs on it:

On a different note, some time ago, I posted pictures and talked about really, really small computers and what people were putting Windows XP-capable machines into (remote control cars, cereal boxes, humidors, Millenium Falcon toys, etc). Well, there is now an even SMALLER version of the motherboard (called a Pico-ITX) that is 10 x 7.2 CENTIMETERS! It is so small, that one Japanese company put one into an original GameBoy casing and it boots Windows XP off a memory card! Amazing!
