I Can Haz Fire

The other day, I had my furnace chimney swept, and while I had the guy here I asked him to take a look at my fireplace chimney, too. For some reason, I was under the impression that the damper was broken, or stuck in the shut position, or something. So he had a look, and to my surprise the damper opened, and though sooty and dusty, there is nothing wrong with my chimney. He swept it, and cleaned it, and - lo! I can have a fire in my fireplace.

There's something so cheering about a fire on a damp, chilly, winter's night.

Tonight I'm going to try some new apple ale, and have cold pork loin and salad and a baked potato for supper, and a little treat for dessert (THANK YOU, Mr. bakery clerk for saying "Only one??" and pointing out what a sad middle-aged spinster I am being alone on Valentine's day. Well a pox on that, I say.) I took my furry loved one out for a nice walk this afternoon, and we shall curl up in front of the fire and he will chomp on a bone and I will sip apple ale and maybe watch a dvd if I can decide on what to watch!

Possibly this treat is delightful enough to warrant the purchase of multiple specimens, thus his surprise? *grin*

I hear ya. I was buying a birthday card today at Hallmark, and the woman at the till proclaimed, "NO VALENTINES?" I guess she meant cards, but it was . . . hahahaha. No, the answer is no. No fucking valentines, thank you very much.

Enjoy the ale and the fire. Maybe you should watch House of Flying Daggers, which, btw, now sounds like a good name for Hallmark. :)

I actually ended up watching Say Anything, which always makes me a little wistful because John Cusack reminds me of the Great Love of My Life (it's hard having a Great Love who resembled a combination of John Cusack and Hugh Grant, with a bit of Paul McCartney thrown in - so many romantic comedies become fraught). But it's a pleasant wistfulness, not heartache, so quite appropriate for a Valentines Day.

And, goodness, that was all so long ago...

I love Say Anything and like you have watched it many times. I have a mild crush on John Cusack. It's the Irish face thing, mayhaps.
