We had so much fun eating pizza and watching college basketball last night (Go Devils!), that we have decided to make that our Valentine's Day tradition. Flowers, gifts and fancy dinners can wait.

No good heart-shaped boxes left today.  Not that I should eat much of that stuff.

My regular drug store is now open 24/7, so that must have been the main reason.  I actually saw people buying this stuff at midnight last night, just after the markdown.

I bought 30 boxes of chocolate for $1 for each of the companies and staff I'm managing.

I'm still trying to come up with a witty name for Feb 18th when they'll get it

The February Chocolate Feast of St. Markdown?  President's Day chocolate memorial feast? 

Never a wrong time to eat chocolate feast?

Bloody Mary Day.   That would be Queen Mary Tudor, daughter of Henry VIII and Katharine of Aragon.  It's her birthday. 

(Also DD2's -- she was MOST miffed when she found out who shared her birthday!)

Edited because I really do know which English king married Katharine of Aragon!

A family member sells Mary Kay (no parties just reorders). Every Christmas and Valentines Day she makes gift baskets of bath products and takes them to auto body and oil change businesses. She sells out quickly every year.

Now THAT is a good idea!

Even funnier than the long lines are the 'deer in the headlights' looks of the men waiting. 

This year will be especially interesting because we're going through a ghastly Nor-Easter today.

Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

Ooooh I was thinking of inviting everyone to Sunday brunch next week (Restaurant Week)  Bloody Mary Day  would fit in nicely.

It's John Travolta's,  Molly Ringwald's, Matt Dillon's, Yoko Ono's and Dr. Dre's  birthday too.  Maybe one of those would be better for your DD?  (It's mine too, but I doubt she would get too excited about that...   ;D  )
