Happy Valentine's Day!

It is the day to stop what you're doing and sneak in a kiss.

    lol. ha. perfect! I was just thinking about kisses. No, really. I just went on my first date in YEARS. No kidding. Didn't plan for it to be on Valentines, believe me. It was to be a "hang out, friends, get to know a nice person" sort of thing. Yeah, pathetic, right? But I'm so glad it worked out that way. Needed that easing into the whole dating thing. ::sigh:: So when we met I decided to be European and kiss him on the cheek. (We DO do that in Mexico too.) Seemed to surprise him but what the hell. Then at goodbye -- nothing. Oh, well. Got one in, right? There you go. Mission accomplished. Got mine. sending you some valentines' hugs... ok, and a Mexico cheek kiss too. = ]

    Oh yeah??? Well I'm sending YOU a kiss on both cheeks and a big Valentine's Day hug.

    Good for you for enduring a first date! I am well-acquainted with how tough that can be. Especially when you're out of practice. It's like the world has tilted and you're on roller skates.

    And then the right guy turns up from somewhere out of the blue.

    And NO it's not pathetic to hang out and get to know someone nice! Way simpler that way, I think.

    Mister Rant is one lucky guy. As for me, I will always have a heart on for you, Mistress of the Mile-High Thigh Highs.

    Happy Valentines Day.

    Smooches and, etc.

    Citlali, when you and I finally get together in Phoenix, I'll tell you about some dates. Dates that you would never be dense enough to go on.
    It was back then that one of my friends told me "Candy, I swear I think you were put on the earth to make other people feel better about their lives." :)

    HA! JWebb, you were around in the very beginning of the thigh high days.

    Smooches back your way, at lightning speed, and thank you especially for the etc.

    Happy Valentine's Day,

    MLE, my in-laws too that when they were here visiting last April. It was during a day-trip they took to Lake Pleasant. So I didn't even see the cute cacti cuddle. But I love it, too. They really do look like they're sneaking it in.

    I never thought much of Valentine's Day. Made-up event--like Secretaries Day or Grandparents Day. Sleep well tonight, Mr. Hallmark--if you can.

    See, what it is is that in grade school we had a valentines box and you were supposed to put in your little cards and then later you would collect all the V's directed to you.

    Well, pretty damn dispiriting. Mary Ellen Lind...OK, I forgive you. And I just hope you're real happy being a waitstaff- person down at Denny's.

    Bet you can't get into those cute little cut-offs nowdays, huh kiddo?

    Well, not one of those in that Lind clan ever amounted to anything.
    And I hear Mary Ellen sells more than the Grand Slam at Denny's.

    Maybe Mary Ellen actually calls it "the Grand Slam." ...At least that's what I call it when I'm working my corner.

    Happy Belated Valentine's Day to two people who make me happy just by being crazily in love with each other. (I'm talkin' 'bout you and yer man, you skank!)

  • At 5:48 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said… blind am I? I didn't even notice the cacti until I read through all of these comments and went back and looked at the picture. Very cute. :-)

    I hate Valentine's Day to the very core of my being, but I put on a happy face for the kids.

    Back in grade school, I used to agonize over the cards that I had to hand out to all of my classmates. I spent a lot of time at the dining room table, trying to assign cards appropriately, according to how much I liked a particular classmate, but always felt so embarrassed when I had to hand out those damn cards. I felt that they grossly overstated my affections. And if there was a particular boy that I happened to have a crush on, I certainly didn't want him to know it!

    I realize now that nobody cared and just scribbled names on the cards without much thought.

    I was such a weird kid.

    It truly is the best caption ever.

    Not that I'm biased or anything.
