So I look and a local cinema is showing Casablanca Valentine's day. So I amble up to Mrs. UB and say, "Would you like to go to a movie on Valentine's Day?"

Mrs. UB: "Dissertation."

Me: "Well they are showing..."

Mrs. UB: "Dissertation!"

Me: "I know, I just thought..."

Mrs. UB: "DISSERTATION!"

I think there will be dissertating on Valentine's Day.
Way to read between the lines.
Well, I have been married for almost six years so that makes me an expert, right?

Going to an Irish Rovers concert in a few weeks as a late V-Day celebration.
Good times!
It didn't work out. I got sick so my daughter took my place. It was their final tour, so I don't get another shot at it. My wife did get me a 'Best of...' CD and a t-shirt, but it's not quite the same.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Sorry to hear that. It has been ages since I saw them. I grew up with them due to my father's love of Ireland. Well them and others like them. My favorite still is Tommy Makem and the Clancy Brothers.

Plan to go to Smokies for belated (planned) anniversary trip end of this week. Lots of gears have to mesh for this to happen.

My wife and I are strange when about Valentine's day. She calls it a greeting card holiday. Last year she pointed out that it is not much different than Halloween; there is candy, cards, dress up, etc. She even pointed out that the same isles for the Valentine's paraphernalia at the stores are the same for Halloween. (She has an MBA and works in contracting and procurement.) The times that we have gone out, for fun she asks me to analyze the various couples in the restaurants. i.e. who's wearing wedding bands, who isn't but is showing tan lines from rings, how they are dressed, the non verbals/proximics between the couples, etc.

But this year, as last, I going to try off setting the celebration by a day, either before or after. We normally buy each other a small inexpensive gift as well. Last year she bought me a new fillet knife and had two steaks sealed in the shape of a heart from a local butcher shop.
