Valentines Day came and went. Just like the last two Valentines I celebrated while on my mission, I enjoyed them chiefly amidst the male warmth I have become all too familiar with.
It's my own fault and I know it. I killed a good thing with Andrea. I faded a great thing with Sanders. I cowardly, but probably smartly, chose not to purse the Go-Go dancer. (as though I even have a chance) I have ignored the 3 or so not attractive girls that I know have big huge crushes on me. Yes, poor poor Jake.
Lance, has been seeing a girl for about two weeks. He met her online. I, we, still make fun of him for doing the whole online thing... but it brings home the betty's. This girl, April, is pretty. I'd say about a 7, but she is soooo dumb. She is so incredibly dumb that I avoid even having conversations with her. Last night Lance asked if he could use the downstairs for Valentines. He set candles up, had Robin Thicke playing on his iPod, and had set up a dimly lit picnic on the downstairs living room floor. I walked past after loading some laundry, and heard her saying to him, "...then he asked me what mountain range we were in and I said, 'the Alps' and he just started laughing. How was I supposed to know? There's like twenty mountain ranges." Alas, Lance was not seen from again last night so I think it's safe to say he got a Valentine roll around this year.
Aaron took a girl out Wednesday for the first time. She is pretty cute. Probably more like an 8. They made out on the first date, and apparently, (this is according to him) she has the longest tongue on the planet. They were in the kitchen yesterday, before going back to her apartment for some Valentine's dinner she had prepared (for their second date) and I asked her, "Mary, can I see your tongue?" She looked at me, looked at him, looked at me again and said, "Don't be a pervert." She then walked into the front room. Aaron laughed, patted me on the back and said, "Thanks for warming her up for me." Then headed after her. Aaron got home at 4am. I know because he left his keys here and I was the one he called to get in. When I let him in, he said, 'Dude, she is the best kisser!" I said, "I'm asleep. Tell me tomorrow."
Nick hasn't been on a date for a while. I think he spent Valentine's with his parents. He didn't come home at all last night because his parents leave a room for him at their place. I asked him if he had any Valentine's prospects. He said "Lethal Weapon". I said "huh?" He said, "We're watching Lethal Weapon tonight. It's Valentine's after all." I agreed that it was indeed Valentine's, Lethal Weapon made perfect sense... riiiggght.
Calvin, like me, didn't have any plans either. Yesterday the fruit cake he's snogging known as Marie calls my phone because Calvin hasn't been answering her calls. It was funny, but I'll let him tell that story. He and I were going to write a big post dedicated to Valentines Day, and even rate all the girls who have requested we do so privately... but we got lazy and ended up watching movies and eating carrots.
I had a 5 lb bag of peeled carrots, and since we didn't really have anything else in the house, and it was the sabbath, we just ate the carrots. Carrots are pretty good when there's no Doritos or raisins around.
So, no snog on Valentine's Day for me or Calvin. I don't know about Nick, as I'm not sure what type of kissing is acceptable in his family, but it would appear that Aaron and Lance were the best Valentiners this year.
