Yeah, okay, I know posts like this are cheap, easy, and common, but I just like writing one from time to time. [g]


Probably need to tone it down a bit Mike,nobody's that perfect!

Despair not, as love is blind.
Or to put it bluntly: Da right gal for you's gotta be nuts but she's out there somewhere ...

Hi Mike,

You do satire very well indeed on this Valentines Day and, as a Brit, I'm glad you chose Amanda Holden as the muse, stimulus, whatever. When can we expect a novel from you? I'd want to read it.

Best wishes


Wow. Ron Jeremy is looking BAD.

Eerily so, that sounds like a few women I've encountered over the years.

Lay off the brandy.

Nothing wrong with being cheap, easy, and common! : ]

I thought I recognised the photo.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is a militant held in U.S. military custody in Guantánamo Bay for alleged acts of terrorism including the mass murder of civilians. Wikipedia


...freely adapted from Ctein's Matrix Sex Sale? Happy Valentine's, Mike...!

Recently divorced, I completed the online eHarmony questionnaire and received the following:

"We're sorry -- we are unable to find the right type of people for you.

"This does not reflect on you personally or your chances of finding a happy relationship. Thank you for trying eHarmony; we wish you the best in finding a great relationship."

I am still waiting for my version of Peppy Miller [The Artist] to turn up and think I am in for a long long wait.

Needless to say, Valentine's Day kind of slipped under the radar this year and probably will again next year and the year after.

I tend to be fond of Lewis Black's take on the occasion.

Mike, I suspect you don't realize that it's a photo of Khaled Sheikh Mohammed.

[Yes...y'see, that was meant to be amusing.... --Mike]

Reminds me of an ad in the personals of Time Out (London). It read-
Ugly dwarf seeks woman for rows. All photos burnt. I hope he found his dream.

I can now reveal that I am Anonymous. I only used the pseudonym because I had sent a link to the original post to my sweetie and when I was writing my comment I realized she might read it and therein spoil my surprise(s). She loved the book (Thanks, Mike and Peter), though at first couldn't figure out what her gift was because she kept turning it away from the spine. "Ohh! You got me a red linen rectangle!".

As for serenading, well, I guess I didn't do it properly, because dictionaries say that is specifically done outside a bedroom window, not in a fine restaurant (also, her condo is on the third floor. My voice carries well enough, but neighbors might not enjoy it). So instead, only a lucky few at Wild Ginger at 10PM got to enjoy my a Capella rendition of In Other Words (aka Fly Me to the Moon).
