I hope you each had a pleasant Valentine's Day this past week. I was lucky enough to get a beautiful bouquet of roses, an e-rose [ ())>-%--- ], and a semi-creepy unwanted note (ask me off-line if you want to hear that story).
Nick took me out to dinner at this amazing Persian restaurant near our house. Unbeknownst to us, they had a special Valentine's Day menu: a four-course meal including fresh naan, hummus & dips, lentil soup, lamb, saffron rice, baklava and pistachio rosewater ice cream... it was impossibly delicious. Anyone who comes out to this area must go to this restaurant (it's a bit pricey, but totally worth it). The flavours are indescribable, fresh, savory... They even had "romantic live flamingo guitar [sic]" throughout the evening, and brought us a rose at the end of the meal. It was a leisurely and lovely evening.
In other Valentine's Day news, one of my products (Webmaster Tools) officially went out of beta on V-Day, as well as being one of the first official Google blogs to open up comments (a very popular move w/ the webmaster community). Go, Webmaster Tools!
