Friday is Valentine's Day. It's also Kate's birthday. So I'd be in big trouble if I forgot... but, no worries, it's going to be great. We're going out to Lavanda, a fancy Italian restaurant and wine bar in Palo Alto. Afterward there's a couple of places in downtown that have live jazz, so we'll stop by one of those.
After the gift-giving, well...
We're getting all dressed up. Kate's got this zip-up black shirt. It looks great with these black pants she has. Another option was a colorful skirt, but I liked the all-black look.
I got inspired by the all-black theme, and so I went shopping tonight at the Macy's men's store in the Stanford shopping center. Now I have a black silk shirt and black corduroy pants, plus new black socks, shiny black dress shoes, black leather belt, black sunglasses, and black silk boxers. (Who says men can't coordinate colors?) The centerpiece is this awesome black leather jacket. I look straight out of the Matrix in this stuff. It's all good stuff, too, brands I like. They always seem to have big sales when I go there, and tonight was no exception: I got incredible deals, like $125 for the jacket, tagged at $475 originally, and $30 for $80 shoes.
On Tuesday, I did the revision, and today I did the presentation again for a different audience. It went much better. I am happy about that.
