V Day Traditions

Happy V Day! Really, and that's not my cynical self telling you to enjoy the day, even though I don't.

Growing up I always hated the holiday. It always made me feel bad as a teen; and why would I intentionally look forward to the disappointment of finding that I'm not loved by anyone or that no guy could fulfill my fantastic imagination. So I made a decision to not care... and it made everything so much easier. If any of you know me, I'm not the Luvie-dovie type, so it didn't matter. I'm more the Dress like a Pirate type on Valentine's day.

Well, when I got married I told Kevin I didn't want anything. Boy, he lucked out, right? Instead I told him I wanted a HOMEMADE Card. I didn't give him any rules and over the years I have received some rather "Interesting" cards.

Who can forget my "Die Candie Die" card - when you look inside it read: "But don't die for a really longer time, cause I'll miss you."

Or my "Bunnies in the Furnace" card, with a bunny made from construction paper surrounded by Brimstone!

Well, here is this year's card:
This is based on a song called "Skullcrusher Mountain" about a mad scientist who kidnaps a girl and tries to impress her by making her a bunch of things like a half-pony half-monkey monster.

This lyric reads:
Picture the two of us alone inside my golden submarine
While up above the waves my doomsday squad ignites the atmosphere
And all the fools who live their foolish lives may find it quite explosive
Well, it won't mean half as much to me if I don't have you here

Isn't that romantic? Can you see Kevin and I in the Golden Submarine?

I think it's my favorite card so far.

When we were playing Rock Band last night I remember him saying that he had an idea for your card. Now I know what it was.

That's just about the most romantic thing I've ever heard - coming from Kevin, that is. Very funny!

And all this time I thought Kevin wasn't romantic! Shows you what I get for doing my own thinking. Kev sure has some hidden talents. Happy Valentine's Day!!

Very jealous. Wish I would have thought to tell my husband the same thing about Valentines.

Our first Valentines was not a success and is best to just forget the holiday. Now that we have kids we just get them stuff and forget giving things to each other...
