The oddness that is a day devoted to buying greeting cards

Happy Valentine's Day, everybody, whatever that may mean to you - my two oldest went to a "screw valentine's day, let's hang out" slumber party last night, and I had - gasp! joy! - knitting at Javaroom.

Which was great! I got to see a bunch of people! Yay! Yarn Harpy gets major, major hugs and piles of astonished gratefulness for a cd she burned for me...which contains nothing the slightest bit illegal or anything and is purely experimental in nature, what with needing to put something on there besides pictures of the hot marine from her wedding. Ahem. Thank you so much!! And R. even came over for Guitar Hero later! Yay yay yay! So we stayed up kinda late and discovered that the Cream song really is a two glass of wine one. You get into precisely the right groove after two glasses of wine. Very convenient, that. I clearly need to get another controller so we can do multiplayer on this thing - then the nagging to come and play with me will simply never end. You have been warned, people.

This is an oldish thing, but still funny if you haven't seen it. Part of its charm is that it sounds like (and no doubt is) a bunch of drunk guys in somebody's basement. Herewith:

The "Come to Norway" song

Let's see... I finished my biostatistics homework, which was good; I was kinda bummed Monday (still am, a bit), 'cause plans for the weekend got screwed up and now I need to try and figure out whether and when I'm going to the Mozart Requiem after all (anybody want to come with me?), lab was a grind but okay, I have passed one goddamn song on hard level on Guitar Hero and keep dying nearly at the end of song two (which is annoying). Also the new iMac is a thing of beauty and a delight and a joy. But it doesn't run Guitar Hero all that well.

Must remember to pay bills and make phone calls and all that stuff. Will try to have reasonable day; you all do the same, okay? Okay.

Did I mention Guitar Hero at all? Oh. Yeah. Happy Valentine's Day. Be happy and well and hug somebody.

Well said, Lynne! It's always nice to have a second language. (Or maybe it's some kind of code that I am, as usual, the last to know.)

Happy Valentine's Day back atcha. Damn, I wish I could eat chocolate.

Happy VD to you, Liz!! I haven't seen you in a million years, but I've been getting the updates from your blog and Witchypoo. Congrats on the new place!! And on doing so well on "hard" Guitar Hero!!! I'm lucky if I can survive more than 3 songs on "easy" without my hand cramping up ;)

Screw the card companies. I bought David handmade chocolates from our local chocolatier (and restocked on cocoa). Then we had a nice evening eating leftovers and watching a DVD, which is how romance goes in our house.

Hmm, my comment won't be too timely since I'm backlogged in blog reading. I love the Norway thing! It reminds me of old SNL.
