Dates for Valentine's Day.

I'm going to have to double-check my calculations — I may have forgotten to carry a "1" here or there, and could've flipped a negative-sign — but I do believe I've spent every February 14th (a.) single, and (b.) dateless.

I was bound and determined, this year, to change at least one of those.

And I did.

It was surprisingly easy to change (b.), as I found out.

All I had to do was go to one of my local hangouts and look around for a little while, and pick-up like a mofo.

Top to bottom, maybe... I dunno... five minutes?

Jesus... if I'd have known it was that easy, I would've been getting dates left, right and centre.

Maybe because it's Valentine's Day, I dunno.

I don't want to jinx things, but I had one already tonight, and I gotta say, it was pretty sweet.

At any rate, behold: my dates.

Aside: You'll never guess who the #1 producer of dates is, worldwide. You will absolutely never, ever guess. Click the "Comments" link to see the answer.

According the UN, in 2005, the top 5 date-producing countries in the world (and their output in thousands of tons) are:

#5 — United Arab Emriates (760)
#4 — Iran (880)
#3 — Egypt (1170)
#2 — Saudi Arabia (4970)
#1 — Iraq (7170)
