Is time going by quickly or what? I sucked at the menu planning this week. And by sucked, I mean I didn't do it. Oops! It was my own fault, really. No one shoved that 3rd beer or shot of vodka down my throat but me. Did I mention I had a bottle of wine before that? Actually, I shared a bottle with the bf.
Speaking of bf, are you doing anything for Valentines Day this year? Are you a mushy gusher? A sexy times kinda gal? A I-don't-have-a-partner-but-i'm-gonna-love-myself-with-tons-of-wine-and-home-made-dark-chocolate-hearts-anyhow person? Or do you write it off entirely?
I'll be honest - I don't care too much for the "holiday". The bf does such an incredible job of showing me how much he loves me all year long, we don't really need Valentines Day. Besides, making love obligatory not only voids any potential sentiments, but if you look at the imagery in mainstream culture, the assumption of heterosexuality is offensive and exclusive. I've been asking for girl on girl cards for years - for my friends. Uh, oh, I feel a tangent coming on. Let's get on with the Link Up, shall we?
