Table Saw: $99.
Replacing some truly cheap, ugly carpet with something that looks like beautiful hardwood: Priceless.
I would like to thank my parents for the table saw, the Habitat for Humanity Restore for the cheap materials, and my wife for her patience. :)

Okay, so our Valentine's day wasn't exactly what most people would call ideal -- we cleaned, put in about 2/3 of the new floor in the guest room, made dinner, and are now browsing the 'net -- but I've had fun, and so has Jen, so I guess we're all right.
Incidentally, if you buy a bottle of Chambord, and use the included recipe to make raspberry martinis, note that the result is very very very very alcoholic -- roughly 3oz of pure alcohol in each one. I'm having trouble typing. :)
Anyway, the point of this post is that sometimes it still startles me how grateful I am to be who, where, and more importantly, with whom I am. I love you, baby.
As for gifts, I got a nice 3-speed hand mixer. It was very handy when whipping the cream for the chocolate expresso pots de créme. ;)
Hope everyone else had a good V-Day. ;)

I swear this weekend was no more than four hours long. We got up on Saturday, cleaned some of the house, went to the grocery, and went out with one of Jen's old classmates from Butler -- at a very cool bar downtown called Lounge (try the White Martini, seriously). Could become a regular hang-out spot for us. Sunday we got up and went to the dog park for a few hours with Megan, Nick, and Tupper, which was pretty fun. Came home, Jen did homework and I wrote some code, we watched the halftime show (what did I think? 1. Totally planned. 2. Meh.) and went to bed. And that was it. I mean, I missed a day in there or something! Sigh.
