Girls wish they were boogers!
You know I'm not a big fan of this day of Valentine. Saint, though he might have been.
I make the effort, at least some years, to get 710 a card, but overall we leave the "holiday" alone. No going out to dinner - and certainly trying for a place that will be over run with Valentine special, couples and 'meals for 2'.
Truth be told - it is not very reaffirming trying to buy a Valentine card for your husband. At least one that doesn't have a woman on it or that is shoved into the corner of traditional cards.
It's not that I want to go the route of those pseudo-porn / suggestive cards with the creepy gay-for-pay guys they get to pose on those "adult" cards, but there has to be a something in between.
With the state of Washington now allowing gay marriage (yayyy) and New Jersey taking steps to make it so, there has got to be a market for the same-sex couples out there. It might not be the biggest market, but a niche one nonetheless.
The world is a-changin', all these ancillary services need to do the same thing.
But tonight there are no plans other than to hang with the man and the cat. Quiet, peaceful - and maybe, just maybe, I'll have a new blog post tomorrow that revolves around cooking. No promises.
