Happy Valentines Day

So I had been debating on what to get Grumpy for Valentines day. I mean a card and chocolate would have been okay but its not very romantic or orginally so I decided to write him an old fashioned love letter. I have this cute computer stationary paper which is a sunset over the ocean so I used that to write. After finishing I sprayed it with perfume (not realizing the ink would run duh!) and after folding it I set it into the red roses I had brought from the restaurant. See on Valentines day we give a rose to the ladies while we give the check to the men.

Well the best part of the present wasn't the letter - even so I am not one of the people that says "I love you" all the time so I am sure Grumpy loved the letter just for that

(I just think the words are being over used especially by people that you don't "love" that way. See in german you only say "I love you - Ich liebe dich" to that one special person the phrase you use for others is different.)

but I know he was kind of bumned that he was off all day today while I had to go in the office and then to the restaurant. Anyhow while working last night one of the greedy little bitches complained that she wasn't working today and how lucky I was that I got scheduled WTF??? Why would I rather work on a day where we are so busy that you can one not give great service and two everything will be so busy that people are bound to be upset where I could be spending the evening with Grumpy???? I am sorry there is not enough money in the world for me to wanna do that so I gave her my shift and made a reservation in my favorite Czech restaurant.


And that was the P.S. in the letter. So I am excited. The restaurant is on the other side of the water so we don't get to go often. I will try to remember to take some pictures for you - its called THE MONASTERY. They serve you a basket of home made bread and cheese and their Cesky Knedliky (dumplings) and sauerkraut are to die for. And for dessert they have these dumplings. OMG I am going to be in heaven.

Yeah I get to have a date!!!!

Dino aka Katy said...

Jin - what are you doing up????? Shouldn't you be sleeping?

Beth -thanks I am not much for the hallmark valentine thing. The roses I got from work and I wrote him an old fashioned love letter.

Also one of the girls was upset she wasn't working Valentines Day so I gave her my shift and Grumpy and I are going to my favorite Czech restaurant for dinner tonight

jin said...

LOL...There are WORDS here now!!!

Wow! Amazing! LOLOL

Um...yeah...I had to stay all night again, it's ok, I'm not tired yet. I don't think i'll even sleep until tonight...I hate trying to sleep when it's so bright out. LOL

Dino aka Katy said...

Jin - yeah its funny how that goes with the words and all. You know its not healty to stay up that long. the body needs a resting period!!!! I know you love coffee but you can drink to much

Dan said...

Katy, oh my God, that's such a sweet present for Grumpy! You are so romantic! I hope you have a wonderful time. (Looks like we're going to be snowbound where we are, which could be fun as well!)

Knedliky? I LOVE knedliky! My mother-in-law is Czech and makes it frequently. In fact, we've been to Prague twice, and neither time was the knedliky there as good as hers.

Happy Valentines Day!

Dino aka Katy said...

Dan - well I am not sure I am THAT romantic but if you insist. I think being snowbound is romantic - get a fire going and some coco cuddle up on the couch what more can one ask for.
I love Prague I wonder if you went to my families castle (up on the hill - they converted it to a weapons museum)

Nicole said...

You get cuter with every post! The letter is an awesome plan. Yummm, I love dumplings. I have a question for you, my german grandmother used to make spaetzles (I haven't a clue if that is anywhere close to the actual spelling). Do you know how to make them, as I loved them as a kid?

Dino aka Katy said...

Nicole - you spelled it right - its spaetzle and all it is is egg flour and water. If you dont have a potato riser/press you can use a knife but they'll get fatter. Here is a reciepe that should be easy to follow if not you can always buy the ones in the store they are not as good but edible. I roll out the dough thinnly and then cut thin long strips so it becomes more noodle like.

Bubs said...

Glad it worked out for you. Have a great meal and a great time!

Dino aka Katy said...

Bubs - thanks I am sure it will be awesome.

Gute Idee, das Arbeiten auch mal gegen einen schönen Abend zu tauschen!

Mmm, ich liebe tschechisches Essen. Vor allem wenns so richtig deftig ist ;)
