Pam loves the idea of those (locally made) candy saying hearts, but hates the taste, so she makes her own, out of shortbread.

A co-worker (yes, my co-workers are chatty today), reports problems with 1-800-Flowers yesterday and today:
I think the storm Sunday snarled all their deliveries out east. I was supposed to have flowers delivered to my mom on Monday, they still aren't there. Any call to the number gets hung up because they are so busy and I am now number 497 in an e-chat queue, down from 792. They guarantee 100% satisfaction. Right now, I am at 0%.
Anybody else not see flowers show up?
Update: Co-worker checks back in:
wireless network blinked and my connection to 1800 flowers reset. now back at 795 in queue. oh well. got up to 329.

Rob Sama notes a story that Valentine's Day is a good day for private eyes to break up philandering paramours:
Be careful now.
Spatch is wistful:
It chagrins me slightly that "I Do, Too", my venerable 2003 Valentine's Day song, has been rendered slightly obsolete what with Alan Greenspan retiring and all.
Educand hates Valentine's Day, but says she's glad somebody's using the day to fight against violence against women and girls.
... [F]or me it's always been a holiday of construction paper and glitter, rather than of truffles or roses.
Happy Valentine's Day and good luck getting the glitter out of your carpets!
Charlie Wrigley says enough already:
... Buy a card and some flowers and shut the fuck up about it.
If you don't have a special someone to spend Valentines Day with, who cares? How is it any different from yesterday - or tomorrow - or the rest of your life? ...
