I thought I'd take a break from the rant-iness of the past week to wish everyone a happy Valentine's Day.
I made you a Valentine just for the occasion:
It's a conversation heart, get it? (Of course you do. You Internets are pretty smart.)
I love conversation hearts. In high school, my French teacher always gave us a handful of conversation hearts for Valentine's Day. After we translated them into French, we got to eat them. I think she gave me the hard ones on purpose.
Despite the fact that I'm generally a grumpy ogre, I really do like Valentine's Day. I think it's the color scheme. Or maybe the candy... I am a fan of candy-centric holidays. (I don't buy candy until after Valentine's Day, though, because I like to feel like I'm getting a deal on my sugar fix.) Instead, tomorrow Achilles and I are going to focus on eating delicious food. We're going to Lockhart to get barbecue, because Lockhart is the BBQ Capital of Texas and Achilles has never been (sacrilege!).
I am trying my hardest to feel less grumpy about the shady car dealership and the appliance delivery people. I made them a special Valentine to show them my desire to make amends:
Maybe it needs some work.
Happy Valentine's Day, Internets!
P.S. Dear Universe,
I didn't forget about you.
