BE MY VALENTINE...OR SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES!!!!!

January 2, 2013

Oh miserable earthlings, you didn't think the holidays were over, did you?

Sure, you spent every nickel in your accounts on gifts for your “loved ones,” and you probably got...what, a necktie? A new wallet for your exhausted credit cards? A leaf blower?

Well, just in case you thought you were done showing your affection, the next Holy Day is on its way, and you'd better have more overwhelming gift ideas for those less-than-stellar gift-givers in your life.

If you're “lucky” enough to have a lady-earthling in your life, males, then be prepared to suffer almost daily reminders that your upcoming sacrifice to the bow-hunting cherub is coming, like a looming battle of affection on some kind of emotional D-day.

But this year, why not turn the tables on her? Buy some stuff and wrap it in pink and red and put it in a conspicuous place. Beat her to the punch. It will not only unnerve her, it will be a daily reminder that she hasn't purchased that Hallmark card for you yet, and will drive her up the wall with curiosity from now until then.

After all, V-day should be fun for us as well, and driving them insane is what we do best.

But oh my goodness, ain't they worth it!

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
