The Ambidextrous Chicken-Monkey's Spaghetti Feed

I've always thought Valentine's Day was a stupid holiday. It makes couples feel anxious like they have to super-perform love ("oh my darling I adore you with pink candy and pulsating hearts and KY jelly commercials"). And it makes single people feel maudlin. The only winners of Valentine's Day, usually, are kids swapping handmade paper hearts, and even in that case I think a lot of kids get the secret Valentine shaft where the ones slipped in their boxes are less lacy than the ones given to the kid two desks down. So, if you're not a florist, to heck with it.

But after a sweet plain night, where our friend A. brought Chinese and we sat around eating out of take-out boxes and passing back and forth the intermittently kvetchy baby, I got an e-card from my mom. I'd sent her flowers and she sent me an e-card with a talking cat wearing earrings. The cat, who had an English accent, said I was the sweetest thing on earth, and that I was a love bug, and also that my life was full of, radiant with love. And sitting on the couch thinking about my spouse and my baby and my parents and our friends, the great network of people around us, I just thought oh man she's right. She is totally right.

Pink hearts everywhere.

say, does anyone come here often?

My friends page only has four new entries on it since yesterday. With that in mind, can you recommend any interesting, active LJ users I might befriend?

...if it were a child, it could go to seventh grade this fall!

and i always said that, if i had a child, i wouldn't send him or her to middle school. i said nobody learns anything in middle school except how to feel bad about themselves, and so at age twelve we'd go learn to farm or build houses or something. and i wonder if it is time for my livejournal to learn how to use a hammer or a plough.

i think of this place like it was a big old outdoor bar, but now the old gang is pretty much totally dispersed, and if you drop by to get a drink you'll find that the only folks who patronize it anymore are russians.
-------
though it seems like there are more of you here now than i expected. hello!
-------
i just want to learn to put up psychic drywall. i just want to skip middle school. i just want to mix my metaphors. i just want a virgin bloody mary with a giant stick of celery, and to pull up a table and start writing in my secret notebook.

hello!

howdy stranger!

Hey, me and my friend published a comics anthology!



I have a lot to say about it but right now I just wanted to put up this video interview with Ron Rege Jr. about his "Cartoon Utopia" project.
