:D Yes. A topic for the cynics and more historical based people. :O We celebrate the fact that St. Valentine married lovers in secret....and then was beheaded on this very day. <3 Also the fact that in ancient Roman history, today was the day when there was a celebration in honor of Juno. :O Sorry folks, the Feast of Lupercalia doesn't start until tomorrow.

So I shall give you all a cyber-wooden carved spoons. <3 This is to show my love of you~ :D

Today is important in many ways. James Cook was killed today, the event that inspired the song Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite! was held today, Oregon became a state today, Arizona became a state today, and best of all the fire-bombing of Dresden began today and inspired my favorite book ever.

And birthday wishes to Teller, Jim Kelly, and Jimmy Hoffa.

Firstly, Salman Rushdie is the man.

Secondly, from now on I will always refer to Valentine's Day as GPS Day.
