Happy V-Day

Okay, so I got all nostalgic this afternoon thinking about those old school Valentines we used to send out when we were in elementary school. Remember them, they were all generic and lame, and suddenly, somebody figured out that they could market theme cards or tie them in with movies and stuff. To me, it ruined the whole cheese factor of the holiday.

I remember we would make a "mailbox" for our valentines by decorating a shoebox and cutting a mail slot in the top. In those days, the teacher sent home a list of everyone in class, and ideally, everyone got a Valentine. Of course, there was always a mean kid or two that would intentionally exclude some of the weird kids, but really, on that day, even the weird kids could feel popular.

Anyway, there's something to be said for the modern Valentine's. I think this one is cute.
