LarryD over at AOA is your gracious host
1) Yes, I do have a Valentine. Yes, I still hate this day. Some actual background though. St Valentine was a priest during the Roman Persecutions. He got decapitated for marrying people against the wishes of the roman emperor at the time. So he is a martyr for the Faith, and upholding the dignity of marriage. I guess that's pretty cool. I still hate the day
2) I must say, I think the real reason St Valentine got cut from the calendar....Someone in Hallmark was a Catholic (and female) and decided to make business sense and find a way to get guys to buy gifts for their ladies. It's worked, and thus St Valentine got cut from the calendar.
3) Well, a couple of weeks ago. I found out that my Russian friend Masha is coming to visit me next year. She of course asked me to be her valentine. To which I couldn't say no....even if I hate the holiday with a passion unlike any other. If you're expecting me to put pics on here. Not going to happen :p
7/2) It was on this day last year that I was basically told to leave the order that I was in. No need for me to go into details, but no one insults me and gets away with it. I don't care who you are :D...how times have changed.
Until next week.
