Don’t like Valentine’s Day? The good news: at least it’s also Friday. I’ve written blogs in the past where I ranted about how silly Valentine’s Day is or, even more dramatically, how I don’t believe in romantic love. I know, which Bridget Jones movie was this in? If not there needs to be one! Now, for the second year in a row, I have an adorable valentine who, after three weeks of separation, I’m flying to see for a quick weekend. Long distance is tough, but we are very much in love. Alright, enough of the gushy stuff, I have to share one of the funniest valentine’s gifts I’ve seen. A friend of mine bought these cuff links for her on again/off again love interest. Yes, that’s Biggie & Tupac.
And appropriately they are called:
They aren’t on as of two days ago when the came in the mail. The good news, I think they will work for any holiday.
Also, one of my girlfriend’s has some temporary work in Memphis and has been staying with me for a little while. She’s there when I’m not, and says she watches my birds, Lenny and Leona, all day. I knew they were very close, but she says they are so in love it’s almost annoying. Apparently, all the couple does is sit, smooch and put food in the other’s mouth. Well, actually my friend says the male feeds the female all day. Jumps off his perch to get food from the bottom of the cage, and hops back up to sweetly deliver it right in her mouth. Hey, I like being fed, too.
Then, after she and I talked about my birds, I saw these love birds on display at the MET. This is from 1889.
And I have to thank my mom for sending me a very thoughtful gift full of sweet little trinkets from cookies, bar-tending tools, since we love our martinis, and candy. She’s my original valentine.
However you spend your day, I hope you do something you love and remember to count your blessings. That’s my goal for the day. All my love,
