I lived in Japan for a long time, you know.

Well, in Japan Christmas is for lovers. New Years is for family.

Valentine’s Day is where GIRLS give BOYS the red stuff (red heart shaped boxes and such).

And exactly one month later, on WHITE DAY (March 14th), BOYS give GIRLS white stuff (white heart shaped boxes, etc).

I suppose I should be grateful to Hallmark, Japan, KK for bringing it home to me that most of Valentines Day is just one huge excuse for tossing money their way, but I’m too much of a mainstream American to diss the whole concept of Valentine’s Day completely.

So! In the spirit of DIY and true love ruling all, here’s my Valentine for My True Darling Man. Mikey.


Happy V-Day to you, too (I was going to write ‘happy v-d’ but that might have come off wrong, huh)
