Happy Valentine’s Day!
In addition to being the day of the biggest holiday taken over by a greeting card company and a diamond monopoly, today is the tenth anniversary of V-Day, a global movement to stop violence against women and girls. V-Day was started by Eve Ensler, the creator of The Vagina Monologues. You might choose to celebrate by taking in a showing of that show — see details for the current Pittsburgh production here. There’s a special $10 discount today (different from the discount I mentioned in the ealier post): Call 412.431.2489 and mention "Wednesday special." The show has been extended through March 9, so if you have other plans with your sweetie tonight, you can catch the show later.
Today is also Quirkyalone Day (for those who prefer being alone to dating for the sake of being in a couple). I plan to celebrate with a nice glass of Big House Red wine and a viewing of Casino Royale.
I hope your Valentine’s Day is happy!
How’s about something like “My Spouse Wouldn’t Touch Me and My Stomach Flu With A Ten Foot Pole Day?” I could really get into that one at the moment…
Uncle Crappy: You could get some of those pink Pepto-Bismal tablets and draw little hearts on them in food coloring. Cheerful and healing both.
Today is a fitting day to look at the Aston Martin DBS in Casino Royale.
Candy-heart Pepto. Genius.
Travis: I’m off for my date with Mr. Bond right now, Martini firmly in hand.
Uncle Crappy: Based on the unhappy Valentine’s Day posts I’m reading around the web, these would be a big hit every year on this day — lots of indigestion among those alone on February 14. I need to find the right people to talk with, and I’ll be rich!
