A Touch of Romance

Okay, I'll bite and make a little Valentine's Day post. It just so happens that I'm a TOTAL sap, and I would love to post sappy crap like this all the time, but it's irrelevant to the ultimate message of this blog, so today I'm going to use Valentine's Day as my excuse. And I also won't get extra-sappy, because I don't think most of you can handle it.

For starters, let's get some silliness out of the way. I haven't kept up with Saturday Night Live since I was 14 or 15 years old, but I LOVE this Stefon character they have lately. Thank Hulu, I can catch his clips. This might be the best Stefon appearance yet.

This is my first Valentine's Day as a single lady in several years. (And I refuse to post the "Single Ladies" video.) My heroine, Liz Lemon, words it best.

I'm not bitter, though, I swear. I'm actually and honestly quite content with mostly ignoring Valentine's Day this year. (I say mostly because, look at me, I'm addressing the "holiday" right here!)

Now I shall share what is (arguably) the best love song in the history of love songs.

And that infamous scene (well, one of them) from one of my favorite movies of all time.

So there. I got some lovey-dovey crap out of the way. But honestly, whether you're tied to someone today or not, remember that Valentine's Day should really just be a reminder of expressing your love of others, which is something we should be doing much more often than once a day. Tell your significant other you love them, tell your friends you love them, remind your family members how much you love them, too. It's often difficult to express love and gratitude and appreciation, I know, but there are many creative ways to do it.

And since I'm yammering about love and appreciation, I'm just going to take this opportunity to thank YOU, my darling readers, for reading and appreciating and supporting and sharing my blog. I've made a couple of lovely friends through this blog, I love knowing that I have an audience, and I love learning from all of you bloggers and readers. You're awesome and if it weren't for all of you, I probably would have lost interest in this blog a long time ago. So thank you, thank you, thank you.


  1. I usually hate when they can't keep a straight face, but I would giggle my way through this, too. And I love your blog, now-friend-in-real-life Amanda. See you tomorrow night at Booooooooof!

  2. Nice seeing you at the vegan dinner. "Romeo and Juliet" is heartbreaking but beautiful; Mark Knopfler has certainly lived through a few relationships. Check out "On Every Street," too.

    I don't imagine you will be single for long. (Unless you desire to be.)
