peace love happiness

Happy Valentines Day!

Got a lovely Kermit the frog card from BHK. Words can't even begin to describe how much love I have for her. I hold her dearly in my heart. She makes every day a valentiney sort of day. Hard to get too worked up about a day that's all about love and affection when I'm immersed in it all the time.

That's a good thing!

As ol' Bill Shakespeare put it,

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove:
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wandering bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come:
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

Tonight, we exchanged chocolates, and BHK made tasty mexican bake for me and the in-laws. (well, Chris... Larry had Hot dogs.) Dessert was 3-chocolate ice cream and orange cake with milk chocolate icing. nom nom nom.  More fun din  din news to follow, I'm sure.

The most awesome collection of superhero toys in one blister pack.

Movie Spidey 3 with a baseball bat!
Superman with a crossbow and terrible chest logo, riding a roaring dinosaur!
Bare-booty Hulk!
Pretty Decent Design Batman!

I would so totally pay three dollars for that. (But then again, I'd dig a Han Solo in Carbonite mini-fridge, too)

Metro says there were 84 assaults against Metrobus drivers in 2007, an increase of more than 50 from 2002. Now they're talking about putting protective shields in for the drivers.... what about the other passengers? via WTOP

Two new dinos identified - Two previously unknown types of meat-eating dinosaur have been identified from fossils unearthed in the Sahara desert.

I heard waterboarding referred to as a "mild form of torture" today.

The words torture and mild don't go together in my book - not a gray area, as far as I'm concerned. Like "slightly excruciating".

I just discovered SourceTV - pretty keen for game spectators. Not a bad way to develop strategy, either. (Learned about it per the huge Team Fortress 2 update - including a map with a train! - Nice of them to give gamers with no significant other something to do on valentine's day.)

List of Famous (and kinda-sorta famous, maybe) Scientologists. I still can't believe I missed hearing about Jason Lee.
