Happy Valentine's Day!

Because we're going to be together all day today and it was the only time I had to set things up, last night I created a Valentine's Day treasure hunt throughout our house for The Other Half. When she got home she was greeted with an envelope at the door containing her first clue. This led to a location in the house with a small prize and another clue. Eventually she made her way upstairs and collected chocolates, flowers, teddy bears and a romantic chick flick on DVD that she wanted. It seemed to go over pretty well with her. The fact that it as actually Friday the 13th was even better, since we're big horror geeks and consider 13 our lucky number.

On the writing front, I've been revising Deadliest Cachalot all week and am about 95% satisfied with it. I actually changed the ending somewhat because I felt it diverted attention away from the main character right at the climax of the story. I hope to get this one sent off before the weekend is out.

Today we're going out to eat at the Outback Steakhouse. It's sort of a combination Valentine's Day/Birthday feast since the 18th is the day I turn 40. Ugh. After weeks of working on Deadliest Cachalot with it's mutant crabs, I have a serious craving for crab legs, so will be indulging big time later today with my porterhouse.

Everyone have a good one!
