Cupid Rhymes With…

I’d like to begin today’s Blah-g with a poem…

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Is it me?
Or does Valentine’s Day suck?

If you are one of the few people who enjoy this Hallmark holiday, forgive me. It’s just that I don’t like being told how to feel or when to feel it. My stubborn heart has nothing to do with the fact that February 14th marks the anniversary of the day I got dumped, disappointed, stood-up, bored, food poisoned, acne infested, dateless, depressed …forget it. I won’t saddle you with my sob stories. I will say that every other day of the year except when there’s a full moon or I’m PMSing I sweat glitter and sneeze love. I just don’t perform well under pressure unless it’s deadline related.  I am not a fan of any holiday that expects me to behave a certain way. Don’t tell me to have fun on New Year’s Eve. Don’t pinch me if I wear black on St. Patrick’s Day. And please, don’t hate me if I’m not bootiful on Halloween.

But that’s just me. There are many ways to feel about VD Valentine’s Day and so, with the help of my office elf cupid, I have lifted some cool things from other websites gathered some spirit enhancers to help get you in the mood… whatever that may be.

    Haha, a few of my girlfriends and I are having a girls’ night in!!
    So that instead of sitting at home all alone eating food and being depressed, we’ll be doing that together 😛

    Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!

    I find this whole post so amusing, so now I’m confused. I want to do everything 😛

  • Lydia says:

    Smh, Lisi. I like Little Mix! Don’t hate cause you can’t relate.

  • I agree. Unfortunately I fall under the ‘love stinks’ due to my best guy friend (whom I have a crush on) is heartbroken bu my best friend dating someone else, and he can’t take a hint and I don’t want to ruin our friendship when hes not interested. Lisi, please help me! I don’t want to have to watch this in pain while he complains to me every single time that hes in pain over heartbreak.
    Love you and your advice and need an extra dosage,

  • Lol. I consider myself all of the above!
