Happy Schmalentine's Day!

Yeah, I'm about 20 minutes late, go figure. Let me mention that I am not, have never been and will never be a particular fan of Valentine's Day. To those who are not in a relationship, it's sort of a bold-faced, all-in-caps reminder of that fact. To those who are, it's a pressure-inducing, Hallmark holiday that mostly serves to sell you insane amounts of stuff you either don't need or cannot afford. I am a happily married woman but the pressure gets to me and causes me more stress on this day than I should allow. Honestly, shouldn't we just celebrate love EVERY day? But, despite all this, I'm allowing myself this brief interruption in my usual cynicism and snark to post this picture that can't help but make me smile. For whatever it's worth, for whatever this day does or does not mean to you, Ralph Wiggum is fabulous. Love and hugs and mushy stuff to all.


  1. I have to agree with you. Valentine's Day is a day of discontent, at the least, for everyone. Can we just cancel it from now on? <3

    PS: I'll always choo- choo- choose you!
