Good plans, bad plans, we got it all all this Valentine's Day & the Amazing Kreskin.
First up, our buddies at The Frisky (specifically Judy McGuire, whose photo I giggle at every time) has a step-by-step guide on how to have a miserable Valentine's Day as a singleton. My advice, pull a Costanza and aim for the opposite (that may have be the point, subtlety isn't a strong suit of mine).
The blokes at VerySmartBrothas are on the same track as LimeLife, free Valentine's Days are the best kind. They break down 1-2-3-4-5 options for a cheap V-Day. I suppose all of these programs are assumed to end in basically free sex. Read: Valentine's Day Gifts Decoder
Divine Caroline, on the theme of bad V-Day ideas, gives you a rundown of 7, I repeat 7, big Valentine's Day don'ts. I have a bone to pick with the very first item.
Because times are tough, a heart-shaped necklace may not be in the cards, Em & Lo (EmAndLo.com) suggest making a list of why you like your special someone. The questions "Why do you like me?" and "What do you love about me?" are prett-y loaded; Em & Lo give the tips on how to do it seamlessly. (PS: Buy their DVD, Sex: How To Do Everything.)
Generally, you'd expect something a little kinkier from Em & Lo but instead we get the kink from our homies at Lemondrop in an article that I'd like to call "The Hand That Slapped My Face & Why I Liked It, One Man's Journey Into Relatively Low-Grade BDSM." It's sort of like reading a David Sedaris memoiry [sic].
While it has NOTHING to do with Valentine's Day, I had to include this article from the Huffington Post. The Amazing Kreskin likens being in love to hypnosis. There was no way I could ever do anything but agree with the Amazing Kreskin about anything. I went a strong five years when all of my online names involved Kreskin and I hate magic. I love Kreskin that much.
Finally, according to Asylum, all blue-eyed people have a single common ancestor. Was that Adam or Eve? I kid, but whoever it was, everyone must have been creeped-out/ totally fascinated by that ur-McDreamy.
