Happy Valentine’s Day!
I’m spending my Valentine’s Day studying for a midterm tonight, which is not the most exciting Valentine’s Day plan, but I hope you, dear reader, are having a fabulous Valentine’s Day, full of love and happiness, whether it be with a significant other, friends, or family. In honor of today, I’m embedding one of my favorite love-themed songs that I used to listen to non-stop when Prince Charming and I started dating, and that we played at our wedding, “Fidelity” by Regina Spektor.
(I’m not having any luck embedding…it says embedding is disabled for this video, boo.)
I have enjoyed February 14th every year since I met Prince Charming, and we’ve done fun things like gone out to eat at fancy places, cooked elaborate meals ourselves (okay, he cooked the elaborate meal because all I can cook is pasta), exchanged presents, and did romantic things. I am the luckiest girl in the world.
One of my favorite Valentine’s Day memories dates back to my junior year at Penn State-Erie, when my friend K and I went to Target and bought these ridiculous Crocodile Hunter valentines that showed the Croc Hunter menacing or wrestling some dangerous creature and saying things like “crikey!”. We gave them to all our friends and English Department faculty. We found this wildly entertaining (and no, we weren’t drinking). I hadn’t given anyone a valentine since grade school. It was fun. And I just totally dated myself, didn’t I?
Wouldn’t you laugh if you got an unexpected Croc Hunter valentine?
