because we still have Groundhog day to get through
but I don't really care about Groundhog Day
except for the one with Bill Murray.
That was pretty funny.
I don't know why
but I've always loved Valentine's Day.
Even through all my single years
when I would celebrate it by driving home from work
sitting in front of the tv
and watching Bridget Jones,
while cramming all the chocolate the kids gave me into my face.
Every year, I make edible valentines for my kids.
and roll it out and cut our big hearts.
I use my giant heart cookie cutter that I got from Wal-Mart.
This is a really bad picture of it.
I frost each heart
make sure you do it lovingly.
and then I use that tube of icing
with the little attachments
This. Takes. Forever.
But they're worth it, right?
When you hand them out
and they go, "Awesome!"
and shove it in their face,
the ratio of production time to scarf time is, like,
200 to 1.
But there's always some kid
who makes it worthwhile
by saying, "Oh, it's so pretty!
I don't want to eat it!
You MADE this?!"
Yes, I did.
I want to know, what special stuff do you do for Valentine's Day?
And, what are some neat Valentine's Day ideas
to do something simple and special for my hunnybun?
And not sweets.
The first year we were dating,
I made him a bunch of precious heart cookies
and I frosted them all different ways
and made them look really really cute.
Two months later,
I found them,
in his house.
I said, "What is this about?!"
and he said, "Oh....I ate some of them...I just don't really like that much sugar."
No cookies for you!
In honor of early Valentine's Day
which will begin as soon as I get paid on January 31,
I have two freebies for you!
Please take them
and let me know you did.
I'm watching the Roast of Charlie Sheen -
do I need to explain why?-
and I have two observations
aside from the most obvious observations.
1. How is it possible that Mike Tyson is so precious
when he's also so terrifying?
2. Why is it that John Lovitz can say the most raunchy stuff ever
but he's so adorable and harmless? I think it's the grin.
These people have mastered oxymoron.
Happy Early Valentine's Day
