Traditional Valentines Day Post  
Firstly, I hope every one of you has a fantastic Valentines day, be it with a sweetie, or by laughing evilly as you fling water balloons at couples ^_^ It's a holiday. Find a way to enjoy it!

Secondly, I get up this morning and of all things what do I see on the coffee table.


Orchids, of all things.

We're not a really "flowery" couple in general, so to get up and find orchids just floored me. Go, thudpucker.

So, I'd been thinking of putting a surprise new desktop on his laptop before he surprised me, so now that's he's suprised ME, it's pretty much a given. I found a picture of the I Love Lucy logo and removed the text to make a blank template on which I wrote I Love Martin in Allegro font. I mention this because it's still early enough for YOU to use the template if you feel so inclined. It's a blank template, why let it go to waste?

Template is here...

Thirdly, on the V theme, check out the trailer for V for Vendetta, which is a movie you REALLY SHOULD see...


I broke up with google, you can, too. FYI, for my searching I now use Clusty, which seems to give just as many hits, without tracking your hits, and you can organize the results by type.

Lastly, this has no damn relevance whatsoever. It's just cute. And neat.


CORRECTION: They are lilies. Shows what I know about plants o_0

Those are really beautiful! I love orchids, I just can't grow the bloody things. Too dry in this area. They need high humidity.

Huai Hsing told me once that orchids used to grow like weeds in Taiwan. Yet another reason to get my butt over there for a vacation :D

Glad to hear you're having a good V day!

Considering there's 12 minutes left in the work day, it's going good!

He told you? When? Did he just mail you "I thought you should know Misty is getting orchids"? 0_o


And yes, they smell gooooooood!

I love those flowers! They not only look good but they smell great. Put some sugar in the water and they will last longer and the buds may bloom.

Puppys! I love puppys!

I know, the whole puppy thing is pointless, but DAMM it's adorable!

And if you look in the photo there's a little packet of "flower preservative" at the base of the vase that's been partially used ^_^

I like the sugar thing better, but whatever works!

Yay, me!

The background was pretty cool, by the by.

Now to be the annoying know-it-all noodge. They're stargazer lilies. My mom is a lily fiend.

Gary had ordered me roses and computer components, but the durned flower place he ordered from decided to try to charge him more for Valentine's Day delivery after he'd already paid, so he told 'em to shove off and to give him his money back. I was quite happy with this decision when he told me. :)

But I got computer components! He was being sweet and loverly this year!

Makes /me/ feel horrid; all I got him was Starbucks and In-n-Out.

What components did you get?

re: V for Vendetta
have you read the graphic novel that it's based on?

i'm glad that you had a pleasant valentine's day.
Frittersfritters on February 16th, 2006 09:03 pm (UTC)
Yeah, we've got the graphic novel, that's one of the reasons we're pimping it.
jason_brez on February 16th, 2006 09:36 pm (UTC)
