An alternative Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s y’all.

I’m a soppy bugger and like any excuse to exchange extra smooches/cards/poems/sweeties with my honey.

If, however, you are busy bah-humbugging the holiday for its Hallmark-hijacked cuteness and the current adverts/shop displays have left you feeling queasy, here’s my Valentine’s Day antidote.

Step 1. Listen to Jonathan Coulton. I ‘discovered’ this internet sensation relatively recently and my favourite song is probably Re. Your Brains as it’s about zombies and has the immortal line: ‘We’re not unreasonable, I mean, no one’s going to eat your eyes’. However, Code Monkey, is also fabulous and probably a little more romantically suitable.

Step 2: Watch The Flight of the Conchords singing Business Time (above). If you haven’t already done so, purchase both seasons of the TV series which followed their stage show.

Step 3: Snuggle with your beloved. If you don’t have a readily-available beloved, snuggle with a book. I’m loving Laini Taylor’s The Daughter of Smoke and Bone. It definitely deserves a Valentine’s smooch. Mwah!

What? You don’t smooch your books? Weirdos…

    Oh I love Jonathan Coulton. Skullcrusher Mountain’s my fave.

      Ooh, yes – that one’s genius…’Isn’t it enough to know that I ruined a pony making a gift for you?’ Ha.

    Flight of the Conchords… genius. Have you heard the radio show that followed their stage show and predated the TV shows?

      No! I didn’t even know it existed – thank you! Off to Google…
