With couples ogling each other at every turn, and pushy peers asking constantly when you're going to get a date, Valentine's Day can become a bind.
It might be that your broken heart isn't likely to make it through the romance season this year; or merely that you're quite happy being single, and most unhappy at being questioned about that, at length, as if it's something abnormal.
Or maybe you're in a very committed relationship, and won't be told by the likes of Hallmark, when you should be demonstrating your love. You manage very well without the palaver any other time of the year.
Whatever has you hot under the collar, here's the perfect Anti-Valentine's Day gift for you.
WordChazer - Ok, I'm being talked into this. I'll see what I can knock up.
Ember - LOL I'd nearly forgotten about them!
Come on, you wrote articles on the Hell's Angels Lapdogs and the Zombie Gnomes, so why not plush toy virii too?
Here I am, tempting you.
Do it, do it, do it!
It is wrong that I had to look it up? But yes! The Black Death Plushie amused me more than anything. And don't tempt me. I might just do that, if no-one else nabs it first.
You should do an article for them! :D (Maybe even a Valentines day one). I'd just love to see what you actually ended up writing for it XD
I did think that if there was an appropriate one to send you, it'd be the yersinia pestis plushie.
I absolutely love that this is a thing. I forget about it, then see the tab open and see another one, then it's the giggles all over again. I mean, I'm looking at a plush toy for leprosy! And the Plague! And mange! I live in a world where there exists a malaria stuffed toy! I'm in bits here.
We have the plush toy of the common cold, and another but I can't remember what disease is lurking on the shelf...
younghopes - Me too! I'm so tempted to get one!
Ember - That has got to be the riskiest click of the day, but surprisingly cute at the other end! You've got to remember that you're a biologist. When I link to things, it's going to be sweet, innocent history. When you link to things, it could easily be a close up of the things that live in my eye-lashes.
But no. It was a herpes plush toy. Sorry, got the giggles so badly here. Fabulous!
And yes, a thriller like Contagion, but a whole new spin on the St Valentine's Day massacre.
