the story of an invisible girl
V-Day is Coming
Actually, bitter as I am about this lovey-dovey time of year, I had a wonderfully lovely and romantic evening last night. The Best Tuesday Ever. We saw Cats, then we shared a home-cooked meal by candlelight. It was lovely; it really was. And it wasn't even V-Day yet.

But that's not what I want to talk about. I want to talk about Sweathearts, because I was just given a little bag of them as a reward for turning in an office survey. Sweathearts are those sappy sugary little candy hearts with sayings on them. I used to love them as a kid, but have largely ignored them since. Yes I still have a sweet-tooth, but I don't like hearts!

Well I may not like hearts, but I'm certainly not going to refuse free candy. So I opened up my little bag and spread them across my desk. These puppies have changed since when I was young! They've got some updated sayings on them, along with the usual tripe. Here are the quotes on my hearts:

LOVE 2002 (okay, this worries me...they're a year old? (oh well, sugar keeps.))
ANGEL (but no Buffy)
IT'S LOVE (blah, blah, too much love on these little hearts!)

I need some GothHearts. Now that would be cool! Imagine, these are just a few of the possible sayings:


...and of course, they'd all be black and purple.

MST3k did a skit on this theme once. They called them "Bitter Sweet Hearts" with phrases like "My Needs", "Weird Face" and the skit-ending "It's BLUE!"

You can make your own gothy hearts (well at least pix of them) HERE: http://www.acme.com/heartmaker/

Have fun!

Candy hearts...

I love to eat them, but I never read them. I eat bags and bags of them this time of year. That- and 2-3 sodas every day are probably why my teeth are falling apart! Can't stop though, candy hearts are like crack to me! Mmmmm...
I just want Friday to be over. I am totally alone this year, and it sucks. Being 37 in a college town means my long-term prospects for romance are pretty poor! Sigh...

Re: Candy hearts...

I used to be a complete sugar addict. Now I can take it or leave it...chocolate, on the other hand...now there's my weakness!

Don't worry, friday will be over soon. It's an obnoxious holiday, isn't it?

I have no idea why, but our sweethearts have been saying "Book Club" and I think "Read". O.o Evidently Farley's is involved with fighting illiteracy? Or maybe they just think book clubs are romantic.

yay CATS! I love that musical. We have the video. . . actually. ::ahem:: We have two of the videos, because we watched the first one so much that it got worn out and our dad bought us the 2 video set to replace it. heh. Me and Katie were completely and utterly obsessed with it--in fact, it's why I'm here. CATS is the first thing that got me on to the internet. I've probably been to about 90% of the CATS sites that existed a couple years ago. If not all of them. I have my own, but it's not completely online--we never really finished. It's a good site though. :) (ok, I know you said you didn't want to talk about that but I couldn't resist)

Weird, you musta gotten the educational candy hearts. How odd!

Oh, I just love Cats too. I saw it once when I was in HS, and own the double CD set, which I've listened to many many times. I was so pleased to see it was coming to Detroit, I insisted that we go. Fortunately C likes the show a lot too. It was great fun to see it again! Different than I remember, but still awesome. Never seen it on video though....
Where's your Cats site?

Maybe it's because I bought them at the CVS right next to the high school XD

We saw the video in France, at my dad's cousin's house, and I liked it so much that I asked to watch it again when we came over a couple days later, I think (or maybe we were staying there for 2 nights and I wanted to see it the second night). And then, it turned out that her daughter, Natalie, and Natalie's kids, and I think some relatives from Israel that I didn't know XD were going to London to see CATS! And they invited us to see it with them, so that was fantastic, because we got to go into London and spend a little time looking around, and then meet them at the theater and see the show!

I'm actually not really sure where it is--but most of the images won't work now, because they've been messed with. And it's fairly outdated--like, me and Katie did it in ninth grade, I think, and I've changed a lot since then. lol. So I'm pretty misrepresented and wouldn't want to show it to people even if I could find it ;)
(soz for the late response--things have been hectic at school but I'm on vacation now!)
