my funny valentine

My feelings towards Valentine's Day have always been rather neutral, leaning towards pessimism. As anyone who knows me is aware, I generally laugh at soppy things, think romance is a crock and am typically a cynical bitch. I'm not jadged from past relationships or anything since I haven't had any, I just happen to not be a romantic person. So Valentine's Day usually falls by the wayside and I don't really care; I don't call it "Singles Awareness Day" or generally get upset by it, I just ignore like any other day. Huzzah for the Hallmark Holiday!

Anyway, when I got home from school today an envelope that says "Kali" in, er, romantic pink marker with a fake rose attached was sitting on the ledge by the door. Enclosed was a computer printed piece of paper (in a beautiful cursive font, no less) that reads:

A Red Red Rose

O MY Luve 's like a red, red rose
That 's newly sprung in June:
O my Luve 's like the melodie
That's sweetly play'd in tune!

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I:
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a' the seas gang dry:

Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi' the sun;
I will luve thee still, my dear,
While the sands o' life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only Luve,
And fare thee weel a while!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho' it were ten thousand mile.

- Robert Burns


You deserve a little love this Valentine's Day.

Someone who thinks you're terrific!



Wtf. Basically I've just been laughing my ass off since I opened it. I assume it must be one of my friends? Because I can actually not imagine who the hell else it would be, and if I have a "secret admirer" they are seriously so secret it's a little impressive. The only other person I can possibly think of is this guy I went to highschool with, who at seperate times tried to date 2 of my friends (and was shut down), merely because he happens to live near me and he used to talk very "poetically" to them on MSN (which is, of course, the ultimate in ~romance~) which basically was just great lulz for us.

Or possibly my friend Aaron (who - for the record - doesn't even like girls, so it wouldn't be a LOL ILU thing) just because it seems like the sort of thing he'd do and, well, he's not in school, so he'd have time, but I cannot imagine why he wouldn't put his name on it.

Just... wtf. LIRL

ETA- So yeah, judging from a friend's facebook status, I am not the only recipient of this rose/poem combo. Still don't know which friend it happens to be, though.
