First, let me wish you all a very special and very happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you all get the love that you so desperately desire.

Second, let me tell you how much I think Valentine’s Day sucks. Is it because I never get anything? Nope. I’ve already gotten a bunch of gifts and candy from adoring fans, and it’s only 9 a.m, so that’s not it. It’s because Valentine’s Day is a corporate holiday, in the sense that it was created for the sole purpose of generating crazy amounts of money for companies like Hallmark, FTD, Russell Stover, etc. It is essentially a scam. Yet we are made to feel guilty if we don’t buy all these things to make our significant others feel loved. I’ve got news for you. If it takes Valentine’s Day for your significant other to feel loved, you’ve got much bigger problems, my friend.

I also despise going to dinner on Valentine’s Day. But if you’re a regular reader of the blog, then you already know my strong feelings about that. Bottom line, it’s not worth it. In fact, February 14th may possibly be the worst day to ever dine out. Period. Don’t believe me? Then go to dinner tonight. It doesn’t even have to be a real fancy place. Hell, go to Chili’s if you want. I dare you.

Horbi's secret love

The only interesting part about Valentine’s Day is seeing all the women at work roll their eyes when one of their co-workers gets a delivery of flowers. I love that! They had a little something here that you can send a co-worker a Valentine, so Brian and I took it upon ourselves to send one on Horbi’s behalf. When you read the message in the pic, try to imagine it being said in a Puerto Rican accent. :)

Just because I don’t like Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean I’ve lost my sense of humor.

Today's Deep Thought

  • The tired and thirsty prospector threw himself down at the edge of the watering hole and started to drink. But then he looked around and saw skulls and bones everywhere. "Uh-oh," he thought, "this watering hole is reserved for skeletons."
