I am the Valentine Fairy!

Here's the entry I posted last year:

I just wanted to say that I have totally stolen this idea taken the advice of kungfumegadevil and am reclaiming Valentine's Day for my friends list:

If you're feeling down about Valentine's Day, I encourage you to do the same. Send valentines. Any kind; in comments and posts, in e-mail, in letters, by phone, over coffee. Forget those stupid relationships for a few hours and just give someone you love a little attention.

Everyone on my friends list has been so supportive the last few months, and I just wanted to say thank you, and say that Valentine's Day is about all the people you care about, not just one person you may or may not have in your life. Chocolate for everyone!

What I did was I went around and commented on friends' journals, "I am the Valentine Fairy! You have been valentined!" with an icon. I am woefully swamped this year with overdue work and a meeting later this afternoon, so today I am deputizing the rest of y'all to be Honorary Valentine Fairies. Here's last year's Valentined icon (be sure to remove the spaces in the code):

Here's this year's:

Now go forth and spread the love!

P.S. Please also make your own icons if you want for the purpose. It's going to get boring with just the same two or three floating around. : D

Things I have learned today:

1. Chocolate is good, and possibly the secret to a happy life.

2. Chocolate automatically tastes even better if it comes in a heart-shaped box.

3. My mother is never, ever going to stop giving my sister and me random little presents on minor holidays, and God bless her for it.

4. Hershey's syrup is not an effective substitute for one's daily recommended intake of chocolate, which is so good.

5. Valentines, no matter how small, make people happy.

6. Phantom of the Opera *will* come out as a one-disc DVD, but it will also come out in a two-disc edition, which means that the Fametracker Forums girls are now putting away their pitchforks and blowing out their torches. For now.

7. There are simply no words for the craptacularity of the big lightsaber duel(s) in Attack of the Clones, and I should know, because I can't find any.

8. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle valentines are awesome. (Thank you, Chesh!)

9. And thanks to everyone for the valentination in the previous entry. : )
