Happy Valentine's Day! (and What I'm Reading This Week)

Happy Valentines Day to the best online friends a gal could ask for!  Do something nice for yourself today from me!  :-)

Let's skip straight to the good stuff!

Labradoodle Creator Regrets Breeding 'Frankenstein' of Dogs  (I'll have to show this to our Goldendoodle friends)

32 Famous People Rejected by Saturday Night Live  (Pretty impressive list!)

There Are No Words To Describe How Weird This Wrestling Video Is  (I absolutely remember watching this and losing my chit as a kid)

Ask Dr. Nerdlove: When A 'Nice Guy' Won't Leave You Alone  (Poor Duckie)

27 Signs You've Found Yourself a Keeper  (I laughed so hard at 13 for about 10 minutes because, well, it applies then I laughed so hard at 24 I snorted really loud and woke the Mr)

Since the Mr proofread this, I won't be divulging how I plan to celebrate with him but sometimes it's nice to indulge in the holiday.  It takes more effort to hold a grudge against it than to print out a free Valentine and remind them that you love them.  Or stand nekkid in front of them wearing a saran wrap bathing suit.  Oops, I guess I ruined the surprise.

Any weekend plans?  Celebrating the "holiday?"

  1. Happy Valentines Day baby! Thanks for more links to keep me from getting too bored at work!

  2. These posts are quickly turning in to my favourites. I find some many exciting things on the internet because of you!!! :)

  3. You have your caboodle, I have my scratch and sniff stickers. I have a sort of memory box that I keep and only stumble across every couple years when re-organizing. It's got scratch and sniff, Duran Duran buttons, and a few other things from my teen years that I didn't want to throw out when I packed up to leave home. I just tripped over it this week and am holding out on reviewing the contents, using it as a reward for when I unpack a few more boxes.

  4. Happy Valentine's Day! The hubs and I just exchanged gifts and plan a nice casual evening at home. We don't go out on this holiday because it's too crowded and the restaurants have such limited menus. So we are going next weekend to a place we haven't tried, but others have raved about to me. He'll be getting the "Steak Sinatra" and Lobster and I'll be perusing to see what I'm going to get. Looking really forward to that next weekend! This weekend will be paying bills, gathering up tax info so I can do those at the end of the month, and house cleaning. I want to get as much taken care of this weekend so next weekend I'll be free as a bird. =o)
