… so in honor of the fast approaching Valentine’s Day “holiday,” which some dread while others flock to the cheesy sections of the store marked accordingly; i figure that every so often i will add my thoughts to the those existing about love, friendship, rings, romance, etc. this is more of an amusement for my brain than anything else. oh, and of course, there will be blood- oops, i mean poetry.

while i thought i would begin these series of blogs with a poem, i figure i would begin with a mention of what i have found online. next week will no doubt find me in the realm of Wal- Mart, shrine to all that is cheap “in theory” and not made in America, but that’s another story. So, i thought that since I would be cutting a blaze through such terrain and would be in need of some Valentine’s Day goodies, i would check out what they have online. Perhaps, they may have something modest but heartfelt that I can bestow upon my new “fly honey,” so to speak b/c I’m not sure what to call us quite yet. (Also, see other blog I wrote about Valentine’s Day in which I lament over what the hell to get him- I still don’t know).

In any case, my hunt through the Wal Mart interwebs of doom has yielded- gift baskets- yes, this drew me like a bee to honey! I thought awesome- a bunch of crap in one basket, brilliant- I’d want that! Then I had to back off and think- well 1- this is for him, not me & 2- his father works for a company that makes sweet treats so this would not be a good idea, especially since he can get the stuff for free! So I must move on to see what else this website has to show me…

“Sleep”wear- we all know this is a joke b/c seriously, who stays in sleepwear long on Valentine’s Day, much less any day it’s worn… btw, I am referring to when it is worn when a romantic party or otherwise, is present.

the game is afoot.

and I am actually excited this year. It is true- you only care when you have someone to celebrate with or to not celebrate with… cheers to those that basically say fuck you pink and red day, and go forth on their own day of frivolity amid a co-mingling of lonely despair- seriously, rock that shit! while you’re at it, have a round of Jack for me 😉

but yes, it would seem that for the first time in well- ever, i actually have someone to share the day or evening with- not sure what we’re doing yet but all i know and all that matters, is that we enjoy our time together.

now having never actually had a romantic valentine, i must confess i have no idea what i should do. should i dress up even though we may not go out but possibly do a quite dinner at his place? i have always wanted to get all gussied up, yes i did say gussied up for such an occasion. i would be happy to don a cute little dress and dare i say- one with flowers as a pattern splattered on it?! bright cheery make up may also be in order for such a warm and heart-felt occasion… yes boys and girls i think christmas  is hear again, only disguised by the santa cupid! yes the fat BABY, brings love and misery to all the adults and young would be lovers, all over the world! watch out! he may indeed use trip wire to ensnare you in perplexing romantic affair or he may use a flame thrower to douse your heart in flames when that loved one tells you to fuck off at the end of dinner b/c you *********** who knows what?!

in any case, my biggest- uhm what the hell- part of valentine’s day stems from not knowing what to do for my fly honey. this is new territory fro me b/c usually i am the Einstein of gifts; i can figure out what to get anyone! need something for that cannibal in your life? how about a lovely knife set complete with bucket and yards of plastic, part of the American Psycho collection at Crate and Barrel… know someone that is of the undead? Well, I suggest getting them a subscription to the brain of the month club, featured on specially marked packages of Hostess Lady Fingers 😉

oh, if only it were that simple…

so what do you get a guy for Valentine’s Day? Operators are standing by…

i was commenting on a post about christmas decorations when i thought about some thoughtful and cost effective christmas gifts. now while something shiny and wearable is nice or that new device that seems to do it all, may tickle your fancy, i think some of the best gifts could be those that are created by hand and heart. gentlemen, behold:

cookie’s creatively concocted christmas list

1- stack of poems- topic left to giver. i’ve always liked to write poems inspired by the person that will eventually receive my musings.

2- home made yummies

3- thoughtfully knitted items

4- scrapbook or frame w/pictures of person and pals

5- burned cd’s

6- a thoughtfully prepared meal- for you and another or others, allowing time to talk, play games- spend quality time

7- a night out- looking at lights, having cocoa and baked goods

8- drawings or paintings of stuff one may appreciate

9- other nifty crafted items that may serve a practical purpose

10- surprise movie night w/old movies, popcorn, snackies, etc.
