Valentines Day 2008 Recap.

Valentines Day 2008
Yesterday was indeed a bizarre, yet very fitting, Valentine’s Day. I didn’t have dinner reservations. I didn’t get a kiss. I didn’t give flowers. Matter of fact, I didn’t even realize Valentine’s Day was coming until the day before. Sad I know. I did, however, experience a lot of things relating to the color Red that I would like to share.

My first experience with Red was getting my blood drawn at 11:15am- The doc took four viles of my blood that I will never get back. My second experience with Red was found in someone’s cheeks- I had a long, heartfelt conversation over lunch with a close friend and we talked about issues that caused blood to rush to our faces. My third and fourth experience with Red were combined into one bloody experience. I met my friend Mr. Tulips, who was wearing bright red polyester pants, at a coffee shop in NW Portland. He showed up with a bag of candy, two movie tickets, a backpack, adorning a hood. I got a cup of Green Tea and we wandered over to the Cinema where we sat down together and watched, “There will be Blood.” If you haven’t seen this movie yet, I encourage you to do so. Mr. Daniel Day Lewis, if you are out there, bravo. What a great body of work. You are the type of guy I want carrying a db clay wallet. If you get this message, hit me up, and I will send you one.

I got home about midnight and poured a glass of Red Spanish Table Wine. I drank it, and another, cooked Red Potatoes, watched my lone fuzzy channel 2 and fell asleep. My dreams came in all colors and I awoke to tangled White Bed Sheets and stiff Black Coffee to start a new day.
Side Note: This morning I attended a seminar at the Governor Hotel which was addressing the issue of Strategic Economic Discussions between Chinese and American Businesses.  Former Governor Locke, of Washington, was the key note speaker.
